The artist sought to create a visual representation chronicling the evolution of the Disc Jockey, from Thomas Edison inventing the Phonograph in 1887, right up to the key protagonists in the Second Summer of Love in 1988 the moment when the touch paper of modern Club culture was lit.
The original print run has sold out, so for 2021 Misfit has made an updated edition which widens the history to 1989 including many more key figures and a new design. With a love of club culture, dance music, history and generally connecting the dots the artist was influenced by the books ‘Last Night A DJ Saved My Life’ ‘Love Saves The Day’, Bass Mid Tops, State of Bass…various blogs, websites and endless forum debates (and arguments) on the origins of the DJ.
