The Ellis Dee story starts way back in 1988 when the sound of acid music first hit London. Ellis Dee and a few friends opened the “Rave at the Cave” in Elephant and Castle and he started getting noticed on the underground scene. Soon after this he took up residences at the Fridge in Brixton alongside Jumping Jack Frost, Paul Trouble Anderson and Evil Eddie Richards. Thursday nights at Rage alongside Grooverider, Fabio and Trevor Fung. Dingwalls in Camden was also a residency on a Thursday night. As the scene grew so did his reputation. Ellis went on to headline most of the major rave parties throughout the 90s such as Dreamscape, World Dance, Fantazia, Perception, Helter Skelter etc playing a mixture of hardcore and then jungle/drum & bass. 

Ellis met up with future breaks guru Rennie Pilgrem and along with with Nick Scott and Richard Thake they formed the band Rhythm Section that produced club smashers such as “Coming on Strong” and “Atomic”.

The international scene started to call and Ellis went on to play in Australia, America, Canada, Russia, Japan and most of the European countries. 

This is one DJ that has played everywhere from small dingy basements to massive raves and festivals and is guaranteed to keep any crowd on its toes.
