Haven't heard much about him since he was engaged to Patsy Kensit, but I'm sure his BO is still raging out of control like it always was.

Never met him, or been anywhere near him, but I can totally believe Healy stinks. He just looks like he would.

Four day coke binges in hotels with no change of clothes = Ruin

In fairness even his rather large hooter would probably be too blocked after 4 days to notice BO

Still playing regularly at his own night in Edinburgh I believe. He's on Twitter and had a recent mix up on Soundcloud.

Apparently Hyper lives round my neck of the woods in Oxfordshire and is good mates with someone I bumped into in the local pub.

At least i think it was hyper

We were very good mates although he probably won't care to admit it.

Also, Anne Savage and Rachel Auburn (massive on the Midlands hard house scene when I was at uni round there)? Also, remember LuvDup? (Handbag merchants, mostly played around Manchester around the same time (late 90s).

Luvdup do reunion/classics gigs for people in their 40s and above still trying to get bang on one and relive acid 'ouse.  Strangely, they became quite well known in Toronto in the early-to-mid 1990s due to a local promoter originally being from Manchester.  The rave company 'Better Days' would frequently bring in a lot of the prog house guys, although as I recall Luvdup did their fair share of handbag house as well.  UKG Soundsystem was another one that I've always wondered where they went off to.

Anne Savage is still knocking about.  She too spent some time living in Toronto in the mid-to-late 1990s and I got to know her a bit. [ka-klang]  I see her posting about gigs/tunes on Facebook.  She plays in/around her native Yorkshire a lot from the looks of things.

Stephan is still making, DJing and producing the same stuff he was 10 years ago last I checked - boring tribal drivel.  http://www.tomstephan.com

Jesse 'Spacefrog' Houk is also still very active.  He moved from NYC to New Mexico, got married and appears to be heavily involved with the scene surrounding Burning Man.  He also has a regular podcast.  https://www.facebook.com/ScumfrogArtist

Shiloh

Lemon 8

Shiloh are still active and run a regular podcast on Frisky Radio and are releasing stuff along the prog trance/melodic prog house vein.  Justin also does film work, while Colin is a graphic designer.  Both brothers have young families, so they don't tour as much as they used to.  They also have an indie rock band with Luke Chable.

Chris Fortier is still as active as ever.  He moved back to Orlando from NYC and is still running Fade Records.  He pretty much dropped the progressive house thing outright about 8 years ago and started doing a more minimal/tech house/techno thing and continues to do so on both a production and DJ tip.  He's possibly one of the nicest guys in dance music.

Lemon8 is still knocking out tracks and was working on an album last I heard.

Is Bill Hamel still producing stuff?

The Hamster is still having lunch with BT.  He got involved with more commercial dance music knocking out remixes for big name artists and continues to do so along the same vein. 

Yes, I have no life.

Only a few.  I used to spend far too much time being a trainspotter.  The modern equivalent would be standing down by the DJ booth Shazam-ing every track the DJ plays.

Frank de Wulf was a huge producer for a while and then just disappeared....

Luis Paris?

Most artists are like tunes in this scene, they burn bright for a short time then get swallowed up by the new wave of new. The turnover is horrific. Plus, after a while just pumping out single tracks isn't enough food for the old Gulliver...look at the likes of John Graham, Hybrid, BT, Barry Jamieson...given a long enough timeline everyone fucks off to LA to do films. Except me. Because I loathe Americans. Amen.
