Spotlight Mix: Serge Santiago


It’s fair to say that Serge Santiago had a mighty fine musical schooling.

As a resident of the seminal Brighton club night Stompaphunk he learnt how to work a dance floor as DJ. He took those skills into the studio and taught himself how to make records that always work on a dance floor from the underground to the charts, through House, Disco, Italo and Techno. Twenty years on from those heady days he’s only getting better at it.

He cut his teeth int he studio making edits for the Stompaphunk dance floor under the name Radio Slave with Matt Edwards – chopping up early naughties pop & R’n’B tracks into underground bangers – Kylie, Justin Timberlake & 50 Cent and many others all got put though this pioneering process.

Serge soon branched out on and started concentrating on making his own music, releasing tracks on Stompaphunk Music and his own label Acrobaleno – the first release was with the epic Atto D’Amore. A record that has had a quite extraordinary life, nearly 15 years on including being half two more amazing duos in Waze & Odyssey & Retro/Grade. Serge is still in the boxes of many DJs…

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
