Masstech came into being after a meeting at Charlie Browns Club in Luton back in 1995.
I was booked to play for the club and I was introduced to Andy (Mc Massacre).
We started to hang around together, and Andy was well keen to add his lyrics to music any chance he got. I hadn't had much experience with Mc's in the past, all I knew was they made loads of noise wile I was in the middle of a complicated mix.. and I hated that, but in the same breath I also knew that they were the key to getting people off there asses, and then to boost there confidence on the floor... So to start with... a few rules in place I think, starting with..
1:No chatting when im in the mix...
2:im in charge of the mixer Volume (a battle we fort for many years) lol
Andy was a first class Mc without any doubt at all, and so many parties we went to he blew the other Mc's right out the club / field.
Andy use to be able to just walk into a venue and just start chatting about the people he could see, the cloths they wore.. it really was a first class treat every time we played out.
Most of the time I was in my Bubble (just thinking and concentrating about what I was doing)
but I would pop in and out of my bubble to check out what he was saying, and testing the vibe of the crowed, and every time I did he was drooping ether the safest,funniest lyrics i had heard.
We seemed to attract a very tribal type of dancer / follower, im not sure if this was down to the music I was playing, the joint effort of me and Andy, or the fact that 1 of the main parties we played for was Exodus (the most tribal party on the planet).
We soon ended up with a crew of dancers that came with us to most of our bookings, they were called “The Dusty Boot Crew”
