BLINK's 2nd Birthday with Radio 1 legend Fergie!
As part of his "Dynamite & Laserbeams" album tour, BLINK are delighted to welcome along Fergie to Club 69.
It all started in Northern Ireland where Robert Ferguson, as his passport dubs him, grew up. His first day of secondary school would see him donning a Walkman instead of putting up with his teacher's voice, and for the next three years he would spend more time outside the headmaster's office than in the classroom.
At the age of 13 he finally left the school system and embarked on the passion that had engulfed him, embracing music headlong and becoming a DJ. This was to become a mercurial move that would lead to international DJ status and a coveted show on Radio 1 where he championed the sounds of the underground on mainstream radio, long before minimal techno became the “du jour” genre for DJs.
At only 21 he found himself presenting live shows from Skol Beats (Brazil), Love Parade (Berlin), Meganite (Ibiza), the Miami Winter Music Conference and not one to forget where he came from he brought his very first live Radio 1 show back to Northern Ireland.
The show ran for 5 years and developed into a snapshot of what was going on in the underground electronic music scene. Guests included Richie Hawtin, Sven Vath, Dave Clarke and Phil Kieran (who both covered the show in Fergie's absence), Carl Cox and Jeff Mills, as well as providing a platform for many aspiring producers and DJs to show what they had to offer... the likes of Kev Gorman (Gigolo), Anderson Noise (Noise Music), Matt Tolfrey (Leftroom) and Dave Robertson (aka Reset Robot) all received some of their prominent initial exposure through Fergie's show.
A proven forward thinker, constantly developing and never standing still, the architect of an ever evolving sound by keeping one step ahead of the rest, he has never forgotten though that it's still just a rave. A place where people are trying to escape the realities of urban life each and every weekend, and is where he hopes to catch up with you very soon...
