Fatboy Slim, Dave Clarke, and X-Press 2. Over the coming years, he went on to release
a slew of cutting-edge Breakbeat/Garage records collaborating with &/or remixing
Fatboy Slim, Kelis, KRS One, Roots Manuva, Rodney P, and Reggae legend Junior
Delgado and becoming a fixture of the global Electronic Music scene. 2008 saw the
release of both ‘Creator’, a collaboration with MIA producer Switch and Santigold that
launched Santigold’s career, and his FABRICLIVE 42 mix CD (DJ Mag’s ‘compilation of
the month’) released on London nightclub Fabric’s label, a club where FreQ held a
multi-year DJ residency. He is one of Burning Man’s most loved DJs, and his
