about

Phoenix Knight was born in May 1992 at the infamous Castlemorton free festival, slap bang in the middle of Digs & Woosh's now legendary set on the DiY Soundsystem. Hand reared on Strictly Rhythm and Henry Street joints specially imported from the US East Coast, he soon became well acquainted with the skippy high hats, offbeat snares and wailing vocals of the emerging nineties Deep House sound.

After settling in the UK's musical answer to Chicago…Nottingham, he spent the next few years of his childhood being dragged around many of the area's underground house events held in quarries and fields, on moors and in warehouses, staged by free party warriors Smokescreen, Spoof, Giddy Fruit, Quadrant and many others.

However, after consuming far too many party cabbages, a group of local house producers decided that an intervention was necessary, placing young Phoenix in a stasis, of which he only reappeared from recently. Upon his reawakening, Phoenix was under house arrest, with his only company being some classic house tools of the trade. The SP1200, TR909, S3000XL, Juno 106, and JV1080 may or may not have been used during the creation of his subsequent works, produced during this period of enforced captivity.
