This is the definitive history of the disco jockey, the most important figure in dance music. From the first records right up to today’s charts, the DJ has broken musical boundaries and changed music.

The power of the DJ forged the modern record industry. His taste-making skills brought us rock’n’roll and rhythm and blues. More recently, the DJ has created many new genres: from northern soul, disco, dub and hip hop, to house, techno, garage and drum’n’bass. And with visionary use of technology, the DJ has revolutionised the way music is made.

This book traces the evolution of the DJ’s craft over nearly a century through exclusive interviews with the world’s most influential DJs, from Grandmaster Flash and Frankie Knuckles to Paul Oakenfold and Pete Tong. This is not just a book for trainspotters, yet it has details that will surprise even the most obsessive dance fan.

DJs are artists in their own right. They take music further. For the first time the DJ’s full story has been told.
