As dance music has matured, so too have the custodians that keep it vibrant. Anyone with even a cursory knowledge of the genre will know the name Seb Fontaine, the former BBC R1 selector who secured international acclaim as the movement exploded in the nineties and noughties. And as the scene and sounds have adapted since their genesis in the mid eighties, so too has Fontaine tweaked his own formula, forever pushing forward new music and bringing dancefloor nirvana to legions of clubbers each and every lost weekend.
These heavyweight recognitions of his understanding of how to take the dancefloor pulsating into the future are also evident with his radio show on MusicBox Radio with Tall Paul. The weekly show has enabled the return one of the best loved partnerships in dance music .
Best of all he is in more demand than ever before. 2020 has already swollen with over 20 fest- ival bookings lined up, including Wildwood Disco who have asked Seb to curate his own stage. Add to that his own Prototype party - named after his stellar Global underground compilation series - explores the more underground side of both current music alongside select moments from the past, and has sold out every one to date. And his passion extends beyond the decks to behind the (mixing) desk, having been back in the studio working on new Reflekt material. That killer ear for a groove remains undimmed after all these years making feet move across the globe. It’s what makes Fontaine such an enduring selector across these eras, fervently absorbing music new and old and consistently presenting it in a fresh and exciting fashion.
