Peshay’s early career started as he meant to go on. His gift as a producer was evident to to all those listening from the beginning. Tracks such as ‘Protege EP’, ‘19.5’, ‘Piano Tune’, and ‘Vocal Tune’ literally took the burgeoning drum and bass scene by storm and he quickly produced his way into the lore of the scene.
The consistently impressive releases continued with the tracks ‘‘Psychosis’, ‘Predator’, ‘On the Nile’ and ‘Nocturnal’ for Metalheadz. Major players in the scene at the time were taking notice and Peshay was asked to remix Goldie’s masterpiece ‘Timeless’. Huge acclaim followed this release further spearheading him forward. Then he remixed one of the most influential and iconic tracks of the scene at the time. None other than LTJ Bukem’s ‘Music’. Both remixes have stood the test of time and still sound fresh today which is a testament to Peshay’s production.
By this time he was as equally active as a DJ as he was a producer. Peshay was appearing at all the major raves at the time, Dreamscape, Helter Skelter, Fantazia and many others.
His sets at the legendary Metalheadz night at Bluenote in London are still talked about today. As Peshay himself says:
Playing Metalheadz at the Bluenote was always very special. You could play any style, with no restrictions about what you could play and the crowd always appreciated it. It was great to drop all the new cutting edge tracks that were being made at the time. It was so fresh and exciting. That time was one of my favourite eras of drum and bass and it was an honour and a pleasure for me to have been a part of it.
