Sean Berrigan (a.k.a. “The Bongo Pioneer”): I started DJ’ing around 1999/2000, in Manchester, playing mostly deep/progressive house, tracks by BT, Slacker, Breeder, etc. I was mostly doing odd nights here and there plus the round of house- and private parties, and the post-club “back to mine” sessions. By 2004 I was playing regularly at nights/venues such as Trof, the Attic and Northern Funk, playing a mixture of genres and helping to set up the “Bought in Error” night; I was playing everything from 60’s Mid-western funk, soul and reggae through to breaks, electro and some pretty raw techno. 2005 through to about 2007 was all pretty hectic with gigging around Manchester, but from 2007 onwards I have been on something of a hiatus. After moving to London the gigging wound down and then my wife and I had two years living and travelling around Australia and New Zealand and sadly the vinyl didn’t come too. Over the last couple of years I have played out a few times, mostly at private parties, and have recorded guest mixes for the Shiso Room on Brap fm (including a fairly epic 7 hour mix for Bez, two snippets of which have been aired to date). This recent mix for Wayne’s Plastic City is something of an homage to the people and sounds I was listening to and playing out around my 2005/6 heyday. A lot of these guys sound as good now as they did back then, which is a tribute to the music that they make, the driving power of the beats and the inventiveness and clarity of the overlaying soundscape…enjoy!
