3. Fabio; Brixton Pirate Radio to the BBC, Crazy World Tours and Culture-Shock Gigs in Japan.

A pioneer of drum ‘n’ bass and jungle Fabio is one of the UK’s best known DJ’s in his field and has been called one of the best DJs in the world. He’s been at the forefront of dance, rave and jungle for over two decades – from pirate radio in Brixton to the dizzy heights of BBC Radio One. He’s travelled all over the world, playing at raves in airports, culture-shock gigs where no-one danced in Japan and once got caught in the middle of a Nazi riot in Germany.

On this episode we get a real insight into the brilliantly multicultural, music-filled popular culture of Britain in the last three decades as Fabio entertains us with stories from his humble beginnings in Brixton to his life now full of travel. We cover DJing in front of no-one but a guy in Union Jack shorts, the illegal rave scene, pirate radio, making it into the big league, Ibiza, Japan, China, touring Australia, Germany, Austria, Amsterdam, getting stuck in the middle of race riots, raves in airports, BBC Radio 1, staying relevant, social media, Grooverider, Dubai, his love of the Seychelles, his love of Dublin, The Commitments, Guinness and much more. He also chooses a surprising but brilliant soundtrack tune for his most memorable music moment in travel.
