"It all went Pete Tong.....BIG STYLE!",
This review is from: Superstar DJs Here We Go!: The Rise and Fall of the Superstar DJ (Paperback)
Only being 21 i missed the 90's dance scene by about 5 years but the 80's and 90's acid house scene has always intressed me, this book is a great insight into the madness,parties,and how the scene went from illegal raves to a global clubbbing brands.
If you where a clubber in the late 80's and through the 90's this book will be a great read, all the clubs all the DJ's get a shout. For clubbers that came into the scene in the 2000's like me some of the people and places will be a little bit lost on you but its still great to read about.
The book is heavyly based around the DJ "Sasha", i no he is a great dj and pretty much was the first dj to gain "superstar" status but it does get a little bit annoying after a while how often his name comes up. I think maybe the only way sasha would agree to an interview for the book is if he had a chapter about "himself"
The book also has a annoying habit of starting a story in say 1999 and then the next paragraph goes back to 1994 can get a little confusing.
this is a great book and deffo worth a read. 4/5
