Obsession took to the decks in 1990 after attending legendary Scottish rave events such STREETrave & Freedom. While at these events he realised that wanted to make it as a DJ/promoter and within a year had started running his own nights and had become hardcore resident in the famous FUBAR Club in Stirling. He was noticed by many other promoters and regularly featured on the line up for nights such as Rezerection, Fantazia, Judgement Day in Newcastle, N-Joy Project in Plymouth & Nosebleed to name only a few.
Over the past 20 years Obsession has become an integral part of the Scottish club scene as part of the Back To The Future team. As well as helping put together the BTTF, Fantazia & Coloursfest events, Obsession also co-promotes his own nights such as Sector and Amnezia, which cater for the harder side of hardcore and rave music. He was the man responsible for bringing Masters of Hardcore & Q-Dance to Scotland for the first time and continues to break boundaries with line-ups & events.
More recently he’s re-started his own ‘Obsession Records’ label and has released tracks by artists that are causing a stir on the hardcore scene (a record on the label was no.1 in the end of year Hard Tunes chart in 2010). There are big plans for Obsession Records in the future so if you’re a fan of hardcore then this is one label to keep your eye on. In July 2011, Obsession was the first Scottish DJ to have a 30-minute hardcore mix on Kutski’s show on world famous BBC Radio 1. Obsession is one DJ that has kept the hardcore scene alive & kicking in Scotland. He’s one of the leading authorities in hardcore, so listen to what he has to say! The future is still shining for DJ Obsession!
