Fabio & Grooverider: Debut Kiss FM show 1992

Fabio and Grooverider

Anyone into acid house, oldskool hardcore, jungle or D&B will be already very familiar with the names Fabio and Grooverider.

Starting off as Acid House DJs in the late 80’s they helped pioneer jungle & drum and bass throughout the ninties with their Kiss FM show and then more famously their Radio 1 slot.

Times have changed and they now occupy the graveyard slot on Radio 1 on a Monday and may not seem as relevant as they once were.
But there is no doubting their influence on UK dance music, with Grooverider residing at club night Rage and launching the legendary Prototype Recordings, and Fabio pioneered the Liquid Funk sound with his label Creative Source.

This mix though dates back to 1992, Fabio and Groove doing what they do best; vintage selection with a fair few I haven’t heard!
