Fergie DJ

Fergie (real name Robert Ferguson) is a DJ and electronic music artist from Larne, County Antrim, Northern Ireland. Initially playing hard house in his early career, he is now better known for breaks and techno.

Fergie played his first set at the age of 14 in his native Larne. Allegedly a milk crate was used so that he could reach the decks. Being underage, he was soon ejected from the premises by the police. He followed this by building his reputation at Armagh`s The Met, promoted by friend Mark Dobbin. Before moving to London he met Tony de Vit while DJing at Lush! in Kelly`s, Portrush. De Vit would become Fergie`s mentor, playing together at Trade in Turnmills. Through the 1990s he played at clubs across the UK including Sundissential and Godskitchen. He was also popular in Ibiza, DJing at Privilege, Space and Bora Bora.

In 2002 he was hired by BBC Radio 1 to present a late night weekend slot. His original show was Friday night 11:00pm - 1:00am, but later moved to a Saturday night slot 11:00pm - 1:00am. In September 2006 Fergie left Radio 1 due to the station`s schedule revamp on evening and weekend shows. He is often a matchday sponsor of his local football team Larne F.C.. In 2002 he DJed at the club`s Inver Park stadium in his Homecoming tour. He is also a columnist for Mixmag. He has released a number of mix albums for Godskitchen and Ministry of Sound, as well releasing several singles of his own work.

*Fergie seems to have been around for while now, yet at 28, we forget that he was just a lad when he began the amazing journey that is still riding high and he has never had a stronger and more vibrant aural identity.

2008 couldn’t be busier for Fergie. Regularly playing at clubs such as Firefly, Shine, The Stiff Kitten, he maintains an international pedigree which has seen him play at Sonar (Barcelona), Metropolis (Bulgaria), Meganite (Ibiza), Magazinni Generalli (Italy), the Berlin Love Parade and of course over a decade in Ibiza. Add to that a whirlwind of gigs that took in Hong Kong, Australia, Israel, Poland, and America where he even done a 7 day tour of the Curran-Holding Prison Correctional Facility (CFCF) in Philadelphia which wasn`t listed on the tour schedule!

The producer of stunningly good techno that has seen the likes of Slam, Laurent Garnier, Phil Kieran and Dubfire smash floors all over with his tunes and the man whose Excentric project is making a real impact in clubland on three different levels; pushing new talent, putting on events and releasing exciting music.

Fergie is firing on all cylinders at the moment with his recently released THE ME EP on Excentric Muzik climbing high in the techno charts on Beatport. It`s gaining huge support from some of the industry`s most respected DJs, with across the board appeal to many techno exponents. Add to this a collaboration with Gregor Tresher that spawned (Recluse) recently released on the on the Great Carnival Stuff album. A further Great Stuff Olympic album due to be released later this year will feature a track from each country with Fergie representing Ireland. Re-mixes due out include Bigger than Jesus `Itchy Glitchy Spider` (Fergie rmx) on Silver Planet and King Unique Hinode (Fergie rmx) due out on their Curfew imprint.

His exclusive Excentric nights have been ripping up dance floors across the UK at venues that include Ice Factory bi monthly (Perth) The Custard Factory (B/Ham) and The THELKA (Bristol) not to mention 13 weeks in Ibiza and have been featuring guests such as Slam, Phil Kieran, Gregor Tresher, Anderson Noise, Tom Pooks, Silicone Soul, Funk D Void and Pyscatron as well as some exciting, fresh new talent from his own Excentric Artist Agency, Bigger than Jesus, Mr Henry Von, Jus` Phil, Dan Doran, Jordan McCuaig and Ken The Men.

It all started in Larne in Northern Ireland where Robert Ferguson, as his passport dubs him, grew up. His first day of secondary school would see him donning a walkman instead of putting up with his teacher`s voice, and for the next three years he would spend more time outside the headmaster`s office than in the classroom. At the age of 14 he finally left school and embarked on the passion that had engulfed him; embracing music headlong and becoming a DJ.

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 Kevin Gorman ( Gigolo ), Anderson Noise ( Noise Music ) and Matt Tolfrey ( Leftroom ) all received some of their prominent initial exposure through Fergie`s show.

Today he is free to play how he wants and is not held back by perceptions and tags from the past and continues to be a global representative for electronic music by consistently breaking down underground barriers and bringing new music to the people, without compromise. He has never forgotten that it`s still just a rave, a place where people are trying to escape the realities of urban life each and every weekend. A proven forward thinker, a trendsetter. Fergie has become a master of evolving his sound to keep one step ahead of the rest. Constantly developing and never standing still ...... for Fergie this is a way of life.
