The most important man in drum & bass history' Quite possibly. His residency Rage at Heaven in the late 80s and early 90s was the laboratory in which dance music's most potent testing was done, and in which the evolution from acid house through to drum & bass was inspired. Went on to launch Prototype, spread the D&B gospel the world over and take D&B to Radio 1, where he remains. In a word: legend.
