Welcome to CD three of the Dance Years. In 1990, on Feb 11th, the world held its breath, glued to TV screens to watch the release of Nelson Mandela.

Having been involved in numerous hip hop alliance, anti-apartheid and free-Mandela events over previous years, it's certainly a day I'll never forget! The second most important event that year which helped change dance music forever was that, after years of campaigning, the government - through a new organisation called the Radio Authority - granted a licence for the UK's first ever 24 hour dance music station, Kiss 100.

In my teens, I had worked on various south London pirate radio stations before landing slots on BBC Radio London and GLR. I publicly backed Gordon Mac the founder of the pirate station Kiss with their campaign for a licence (much to the annoyance of the BBC) and was the first DJ announced to be part of the new legal station.

We had an incredible free launch party in north London where hundreds of thousands of clubbers turned up and I managed to persuade Def Jam to fly LL Cool J to perform. Meanwhile, in Manchester, Happy Mondays were doing their thing and Sasha had started DJing at Shellys in Stoke. With artists like Adamski, UK producers and DJs were about to start snatching the crown from America and a new breed of UK and European dance music was beginning to be hatched.

I launched an underground dance label called Reachin' Records out of a warehouse space in west London releasing tracks like 'Pisces - Take Me Higher', 'Boneshakers - Don't Go Away' and 'Urban Hype - Teknologi'.
