att100 this week featured jamie rainbow – part of the white rhino crew. in case you are wondering who the hell he is, here’s the bio:
Started DJing at 14 years old. Started working my way up playing soul, disco, in to early electro. Then got in to house ’86 / ’87 where I got my first residency aged 17 in Spain. After returning to Gloucestershire began setting up rave nights and a sound system in Stroud, bringing the likes of the DiY down to the West Country. Headed off to Ibiza in ’92 for four months which led to various gigs in Belfast also on Belfast City Radio. Opened my own dance music record shop in ’93 and had various residencies throughout Cheltenham, at The Monastry in Torquay and Dj sets at Fantazia.
I also set up record label ‘Bosh Records’ in ’93 / ’94. An outlet for breaksy techno with partner in crime Pete Daisy. After getting an instant distributor deal we went on to release 5 trax on the label and had support from the likes of Jon oo flemming, Blu Peter and many underground acid techno dj’s. This also led to many guest spots throughout London including ‘Trancecentral’ & ‘Bingo’. Around ’95 / ’96 I also played at the infamous ‘Feeder road’ warehouse parties in Bristol. After enduring far to many harsh winters i decided to venture afar to the shores of Goa where i managed to survive three seasons. During these hedonistic times I managed to play at various beautiful locations including The 9Bar and The shore Bar, plus I put on many huge outdoor parties. These all led me to lots of work back in Europe, including ‘Antaris’ in Berlin, ‘La Copera’ in Spain, ‘The Outhere festival’ in France and even Lithuania. I moved to Brighton in 2000 where i started various small nights and played many bars, i managed to win a dj competition and also got my own radio show. During these times i would venture up to Sheffield to visit my bro Adam (Adsorb) at the famous ‘Kenwood Studio’s’ where we made many breaks trax incl 1500miles which went on to be played by Meat Katie.
In November 2003 ‘White Rhino’ was born,a charity based breaks nite that myself and a few other people helped create. We’re still going strong after 3years and have brought the best quality Breakbeat/Electro house Dj’s to Brighton, including Soul of Man, Drummattic Twins, Elite Force, Diverted, Will White, JDS and many more planned for the months to come. In 2004 i also ventured over to Thailand,where i did a Breaks tour,playin at Bangkoks best clubs being filmed by MTV. I finished the tour off by doing a live set on Bangkoks biggest Dance Radio Station.
