The DJ we know as Fergie, AKA Robert Ferguson, from Northern Ireland, has always been a lover of music and a bit of a rebel, playing clubs from the tender age of 13. Influenced by the Northern Irish rave scene including the Hellraiser raves in Belfast where he saw his first international DJs such as Carl Cox and Pablo Gargano, he prefers the 'harder edge' of the music and the driving energy of it, which 'made the hairs on the back of his neck stand on edge'.
In this clip, he talks music through the years, and how the CDJ-2000's have transformed DJing for him. Remember to check out Part 2 (coming soon) where he recounts that famous hook up with Tony de Vit, giving back via his own label & agency - Excentric and tips for newcomers who want to break into the industry.
Fergie himself has been in the studio for the past few years and has effortlessly made the transition from Hard House to Underground Techno with support from Sasha, Digweed, Dubfire, Laurent Garnier, Miss Kitten and Slam.
