Ray Keith – 'Chopper'
Same again: anthem. 'Chopper' probably came out in '95. We were actually going out to parties in certain circumstances and I just remember that being an iconic song at parties. Any party, any DJ – well, every DJ. It just made me realize that the UK had its own sound and own style, like with the DJ Krust and Shy FX tracks as well. It made me notice that fire.
