Seb Fontaine Biography

British DJ Seb Fontaine is following in the footsteps of his mother who was a DJ in Ibiza bars during the '70s. Fontaine started DJing in his teens, focusing his sound on soul and reggae tunes, though his sound signature would become trance and progressive house. His first residency was at the London super club, Ministry of Sound. Apart from his residency, Fontaine played other spots around London, eventually gaining himself the slot of Paul Oakenfold's residencies at another huge club, Creme, in Liverpool and Ibiza.

In 1999, Fontaine launched the Prototype series, focusing on trance and progressive beats. In January of 2000, the British "King of Tech-House" appeared on the cover of Muzik magazine and was named the DJ for the Next Millennium. The cover and the success of the early Prototype series landed Fontaine a position on the airwaves at U.K. station Radio 1. Considering Fontaine had a two-year prime time slot on London's Kiss FM, the transition from club to radio DJ and personality was not a difficult one. His position at Radio 1 advanced from special projects to his own prime time show in February of 2001. Three months later, the fourth edition in the Prototype series was released, backed by a series of international tour dates. ~ Diana Potts, All Music Guide
