Fun Lovin Criminals Fast and Frank Benbini for One Love Festival


According to an interview that FLC drummer Frank Benbini the album is a true labor of love. We’ve done a lot of remixes for a lot of people. “Why don’t we do the soundtrack to ‘Purple Rain’?”  I started to approach different people and one person I approached was SinĂ©ad O’Connor. She hasn’t sung a Prince song since ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ which was an international number one so I didn’t think she’d go for it. But she did, and did a version of ‘I Would Die 4 U’. Amazing. Then we’ve got Plan B, he’s doing one, Madness are doing one, the singer from UB40’s doing one.

Jumping Jack Frost
One of the original drum'n'bass DJs and subsequently one of the most legendary, Jumping Jack Frost played an important role in the early-'90s development of drum'n'bass as both a DJ and as the co-owner of V Recordings. In particular, Frost's V Recordings label has been central to drum'n'bass' development throughout the '90s and into the 2000s, releasing records by some of the U.K.'s leading producers: Roni Size, Krust, Dillinja, Lemon D, Ray Keith, and others. Despite his devotion to the V label with co-owner Brian Gee, Frost continued to be one of the U.K.'s most visible drum'n'bass DJs, championing the latest V releases as well as many of the genre's classics.

Nikky Blackmarket
Is one of drum & bass' most faithful servants. His early experience of DJing was as a teenager playing electro in the 80s, however, after discovering dance music he got involved with a Soho record shop, Blackmarket Records, and as the scene began to split, he set up the basement to cater specifically for the hardcore and breakbeat sounds.  This basement became the epicentre of the drum & bass scene, with Nicky at the helm.  His legendary partnership with Stevie Hyper D in the mid 90s made his name synonymous with the genre, whilst his label Kartoonz was responsible for some all time anthems, not least the unforgettable '2 Degrees'. Nicky is most approachable big name DJ on the planet!
