To top off our 20th Anniversary celebrations last year, we ended the year in style – if we may say so ourselves. As part of our collaboration with adidas Originals and clubbing icons Cream, we released a three-part size? sessions event to see us into 2021.
Cream has been one of the biggest names in dance music since its inception in the ’90s – we’ve gone into its past in a bit more depth here if you fancy a quick history lesson – and we were honoured to have Cream resident DJs Rob Harnetty & Anthony Probyn join us for this very special event, along with a headline set from Cream-icon Seb Fontaine.
Rob Harnetty is a perfect example of a rising star of the UK DJ scene. He joined the Cream team in 2008 sitting amongst some incredible company – the likes of Paul Oakenfold and Nick Warren to name a few – making his debut at the clubbing institution’s 16th Birthday party. He’s gone from strength to strength over the years, regularly holding down sets around the globe and to packed out crowds every year at Creamfields.
Anthony Probyn first started DJing in 2000 and quickly burst onto the scene; in 2002, at the age of 19, he became one of the youngest DJs ever to play on one of Cream’s Saturday night slots. Probyn has experience in abundance, due to his established Cream Worldwide residency, he has performed across the globe at venues in Spain, Russia, Egypt, Canada and more. His name is also highly recognised in Ibiza, having played at the world-renowned Amnesia multiple times – a proud moment for any DJ.
Seb Fontaine is a DJ that doesn’t need too much of an introduction; standing as one of the defining DJs of the world-renowned UK scene in the ’90s, Fontaine’s style evolved from a rare groove sound in the late ’80s to hypnotising progressive house. Born in London, he landed his first gig at Crazy Larry’s on Kings Road in his hometown, but his first major step to stardom was his residency at the Fridge in Brixton in ’89.
After establishing his name in the capital, he went on to secure a weekly residency in one of the UK’s most famous clubs – Cream. This pioneering club was one of the North West’s most famous venues, helping him establish his name on a global level.
Soon enough, Fontaine was flying out to Ibiza to play sets at the iconic Amnesia club. On top of this, he joined BBC Radio 1 as a dance DJ in 2000, catering for a more mainstream crowd with his craft. What’s more, he has released a variety of records under his name, mainly including mix albums, adding his well-known mixing style to an array of clubbing classics.
