Fergie (aka Robert Ferguson), a DJ of international standing for the past decade, has never had a stronger and more vibrant aural identity. Playing the kind of music he wants, determined not to be held back by perceptions and tags from the past, he continues to be a global representative for electronic music by consistently breaking down underground barriers and bringing new music to the people, without compromise.
Clearly he has found his sound and the results are very evident in the free flow of original productions and remixes being consistently supported by the likes of Sasha, Digweed, Dubfire, Laurent Garnier, Miss Kitten and Slam. His ever growing ‘Excentric Muzik’ label has been hailed by Carl Cox as his “label of 2008”, with Cox going on to license several productions for his Space compilation this summer. Underground cuts such as ‘Anon’, ‘To The Core’ and ‘Blackeye-P’ have helped to instill Fergie and Excentric at the forefront of serious peak time electronica. Excentric off-shoot label ‘Rekluse’ (launched at the tail end of last year) has got off to a storming start with first release ‘2nd To None’ by Umek refusing to leave the Beatport techno charts almost half a year after it’s release, peaking at the number 1 spot along the way.
A steady stream of new material and remixes on many other labels of distinction have proven the Fergie sound to be one that is in much demand. ‘Ireland’ and the remix of Namito ‘City Of Gods’ (on Great Stuff), the remix of King Unique’s ‘Hinode’ (which went down so well they asked him back to rework one of their biggest ever tracks, ‘Dirty’) and not forgetting the all conquering remix of Umek’s ‘Gatex’, these have all firmly established Fergie as a proven seal of production quality for many.
A collaboration project with electronic compatriots Reset Robot & Alan Fitzpatrick is an outlet for a deeper, darker, more twisted side to Fergie, with the recent ‘Gas Mask’ / ‘Rattlesnake’ gaining momentum from DJ Hell, Luciano, Adam Beyer and Ivan Smagghe amongst others.
Then there’s James Lavelle, who has consistently supported Fergie’s work and drafted him in to his remix his renowned Unkle Project with devastating results. By the end of 2009 this will have been joined by remixes of Slam’s seminal classic ‘Positive Education’ (Soma), Smith & Selway ‘Work it’ (Tronic), Yousef ‘Letter to No One’ (Circus Recordings) as well as Reset Robot ‘Softie’ on Excentric.
This is just part of what made FERGIE a much in demand international DJ with a coveted leading show on BBC Radio 1.
The show ran for 5 years and developed into a snapshot of what was going on in the underground electronic music scene. Guests included Richie Hawtin, Sven Vath, Dave Clarke and Phil Kieran (who both covered the show in Fergie's absence), Carl Cox and Jeff Mills, as well as providing a platform for many aspiring producers and DJs to show what they had to offer... the likes of Kev Gorman (Gigolo), Anderson Noise (Noise Music), Matt Tolfrey (Leftroom) and Dave Robertson (aka Reset Robot) all received some of their prominent initial exposure through Fergie’s show.
A proven forward thinker, constantly developing and never standing still, the architect of an ever evolving sound by keeping one step ahead of the rest, he has never forgotten though that it's still just a party. A place where people are trying to escape the realities of urban life each and every weekend, and is where he hopes to catch up with you very soon as he goes INCOGNITO to give you some amazing cutting edge dance music.
