    This book is a must read for anyone interested in the history of dance music or DJing in general Haslam writes in an engaging and easy to read style and groups his material into nicely themed chapters, pulling together multiple converging trends across several decades to provide a complex and satisfying story of the emergence of DJs as superstar performers.

    Interesting read in parts, but it focused too much on the history of dance music to me plenty of other books do this better It excels in some of its interviews with the modern pioneers, like Paul van Dyk, Fat Boy Slim and Pete Tong.There s a worryingly positive section about Jimmy Saville, but I suppose hindsight is a great thing
