Superstar DJs therefore is a fascinating biography of this era, featuring the key players, from the small-scale beginnings, the tales of excess during the peak years, and the sudden crash at the start of the 00s when it was expected for the superclub scene to remain there to stay. At the time of writing, what's even more interesting is that a movement so popular at it's peak has some 20 years been forgotten like a Ministry Of Sound annual CD, and not been picked up for retrospective review, rather superceded by Hardcore as 'the story of the 90s'.
Written in the late 00s it's also interesting in it being from the years where the key 16-25 age range were probably more interested in the Arctic Monkeys than going clubbing, something that changed in the following years as an even more excessive and notorious wave of DJs came to prominence - a sequel would certainly make interesting reading!
Reading this book reminded me of the exact issue of Mixmag where I realised it was going wrong - "DJs go fishing". Dave Seaman, Nick Warren and (probably) Sasha/Digweed. They went fishing and mixmag did a feature. Oh dear.
How glad I am, that I was going to free parties instead of these superclubs.
Highly recommended book though.
