F IS FOR MAURICE FULTON

The word most commonly used about Maurice Fulton is ‘eccentric’. Coming from a rap background he switched to House at the end of the 1990s and records for offbeat, trendy label TigerSushi and for his own BubbleTease label.

He has recorded under a variety of names including Ladyvipb , Syclops , Stress , Basement Boys and Eddie And The Eggs. Maurice cut his teeth as a hip-hop DJ, danced somewhere in the background of a scene in John Waters’ Hairspray, programmed drums and played keyboards on House hits by Crystal Waters and Ultra NatĂ©. Instead of capitalising on that, Fulton went a different route than many of his contemporaries. His work appeared on left leaning house label Warp records right alongside deep house classics. But he is constantly switching styles of music, which means he has probably had less recognition than would be the case otherwise.

His bio says “Maurice Fulton was born under a crossfire hurricane. (Oh,no he wasn’t.) That was Mick Jagger wasn’t it?) Whatever. Anyway, Maurice Fulton was born somewhere, probably Baltimore, but we’d need to carbon-date him to be sure. Early in his life, Maurice realised he wanted to be a marine biologist. He had the snorkel. He had the flippers. He had some pictures of cute dolphins. (Aww, bless.) Then it all went wrong. He started buying records, thinking they were sub-aquatic aids and before he realised, he was DJing in nightclubs (he was looking for porpoises and took the wrong turning at the bathroom). Since becoming an internationally renowned DJ he has lived everywhere from New York to Australia, London to Sheffield. He presently lives in a croft on the Shetland Isles, where he weaves wool and communes with nature. We like his wool. But not as much as his disco.” Not all of this may be true.
