About Peshay


Peshay’s rise through the drum’n’bass scene has been nothing short of meteoric.

His ability to produce at the highest levels and his excellence behind the decks is legendary. When he DJs, 4-minute mixes are the norm and the excitement that he generates describe Peshay perfectly. Always on the go, hyperactive, talkative and passionate. Whilst growing up, Peshay found himself listening to an assortment of music ranging from opera to electro. His love for the new house scene developing in the early 80’s made him decide that as far as making a living was concerned this was the path he wished to follow. Peshay left his job in the printing industry and decided to concentrate full time on his musical career. He bought a pair of Technics and started sending tapes out to promoters which led to his first break at Bass Box in April 91. He also went on to play for Genesis at Rollers Express, Fascination at Tasco Warehouse and both Dreamscape & Fantazia.

Peshay’s already revered DJ’ing ability helped him to secure regular bookings all over the world. His first recordings came about after hooking up with the infamous BAY B KANE for the “RETURN OF BAY B KANE EP” with the track “QUARTER TO DOOM” and then BIZZY B with the “2 DOPE EP.” Both lit up the rave scene in 1992. A collab with DAVE CHARLESWORTH at ADR and the “CATCH IT” track was also released to acclaim. Meeting GOLDIE one evening led to Peshay meeting DEGO and GUS at REINFORCED. The now fabled “PROTÉGÉ EP” was released bringing Peshay into the spotlight. The EP cemented Peshay’s place in the rave scene and led to a huge demand for his works.

Peshays first solo outings, the awesome “PIANO TUNE & VOCAL TUNE”, now all acclaimed classics for the GOOD LOOKING imprint followed.
