Fabio and Grooverider

Fabio and Grooverider, the Godfathers of Drum & Bass and legends of modern music, are idolised worldwide. Since aligning professionally 25 years ago, Fabio and Grooverider have been at the forefront of a genre which just seems to get stronger and more ‘global’ year on year, with household names such as Chase & Status, Sigma and DJ Fresh smashing the top 40 to pieces. These are just a few names that received their initial exposure from the pair. Fabio & Grooverider were voted in the top 25 of the greatest DJs of all time.

They were part of the very few UK DJs to first play House music, and to then fuse and formulate something entirely new which would eventually evolve into Jungle/Drum & Bass. From DJing at mass illegal raves in the 1980s to introducing new talent on their radio shows (BBC Radio 1, Kiss FM, Ministry of Sound), this duo isn’t done having an impact on the scene.
