YOUR CHOICE: ORIGINAL ROCKERS/THE SCIENTIST

Your choice was early ravers The Scientist and dubbers Original Rockers.

The Scientist track requested was their huge early 1990 rave hit The Bee. The Scientist was Phivos (Phil) Sebastiane. Phivos first heard Chicago sound at school, and got into the futuristic sound of Detroit some time later at the end of the 80’s. He got involved in Alternative Radio Station Phaze One. They used to call Phil ‘Q’ a while before because of his intellectual skills. Then for a party at the Fridge in Brixton, they decided to write The Scientist on the flyers, an artistic name that definitely stuck. One night at the Fridge, he found himself suddenly sharing a dressing room with The Shut Up & Dance crew. He met their mixing professional at that time: DJ Hype, with whom he created The Exorcist (& Champion Sound), They produced “The Bee”, which hit No.1 on the independent dance charts selling more than 35,000 records. It was named track of the year in 1990 by Kiss FM.

The Original Rockers track requested was 1991 release “Push Push” in the Push Push (Dasilva Sound Station Mix) version. Sadly I only have the original version. Original Rockers were Glyn Bush and Richard Whittingham. They were named in tribute to early dub hero Augustus Pablo but eventually had to change their name to Rockers Hi-Fi.
