I have been in the electronic music industry long before there was such a thing. I have been drawn to this music since I first heard T99′s Anastasia.
From the early days of rave I met a lot of great people including, Carl Cox and Liam Howlett (Prodigy) who were probably the most pivotal people on my journey. Moby, Altern 8, N-Joi, Joey Beltram, Doc Martin, Sl2, Josh Wink and Richie Hawtin were also artists I knew and admired tremendously. All had a massive impact on me, as did their music, and I have never waned in my devotion to this music or it’s artists. I was so inspired, that I became the first signed ‘female’ techno producer (in the US) in the early days- my singer was Terra Deva and I think she was all of 16. Unfortunately the world wasn’t ready for a girl that made 146 BPM breakbeat (and they all assumed I didn’t produce it anyway) so I moved on to magazine editor. I wrote the first US cover story on the Prodigy, features on Massive Attack, NIN, Radiohead, Moby, Richie Hawtin and traveled throughout England to cover the ‘ravescene.’
I started Americas first ‘ravezine’ called “The Underground” which was lovingly photocopied monthly and ran for about 4 years.
Features on artists like Sven Vath, Prodigy, Altern 8, Orbital, Aphex Twin, Carl Cox, Massive Attack, Portishead and many many more made the ‘zine a very iconic fixture in the early days of (the US) ravescene.
So that’s a small sampling (ha ha- listen, I used an Atari 1040 ST with probably the first instance of Cubase EVER, so ……) of my rave roots.
