I saw him once at Homelands 2001. The highlight for me was when he dropped Hardfloor's 'Acerperience' as his last tune before Orbital took to the stage.

Always thought his Type night at The Cross was a poor mans Renaissance full of chavs. Sorry, Ed.

I don't think you need to be too sorry, it's not as if he actually went to them.

2006.  Awful venue, awful crowd and the music wasn't too clever either.  I remember Zabiela being particularly torturous.

Re: Seb Fontaine GU Prototype

He's certainly changed his style

Ditched the trendy sounds of old.

Nail. On. Head.

Think he loved the prog, but had to play to a trance crowd at Cream. Bar maybe Sasha or Van Dyke, anyone replacing Oakey at that time was doomed to failure.

Re: Seb Fontaine GU Prototype

Oh yes, I remember now. Not one of their better moves. The usual Renaissance crowd probably gave it a swerve as Canvas always attracted its fair share of wronguns.

Prog God

I saw him when I was about 18 at BCM in Magaluf and he was playing full on trance but he switched to playing prog around the Type / Radio One years.

God knows what he is playing now at the sort of bookings he is getting.

Yeah we should have known better really.  Canvas was never great, it never really shook off the Bagleys crowd.

Re: Seb Fontaine GU Prototype

There's a Type reunion planned

Re: Seb Fontaine GU Prototype

I think he may have held a Type night at Electric Social in Brixton a couple of months back?? I know he definitely played there though. No idea what he played though.

Prog God

Re: Seb Fontaine GU Prototype

You did well to find that. He has no website of his own and RA list no uk dates for him.

Free entry b4 9pm I see. Worth a look?

Re: Seb Fontaine GU Prototype

Cargo is a decent venue.

i only saw it cos Phil Drummond posted it on Facebook about a week ago

Re: Seb Fontaine GU Prototype

Can't be bad for free. I do wonder how many actual old type goers will actually attend. Doesn't seem very well publicised.

He kind of continued the series (or at least the theme) on Perfecto for a while afterwards...

This was pretty good in fairness...
