DJ Touché - Ministry Presents...B-Boy 2000

1st part of the B-Boy 2000 CD mixed by DJ Touché & given away with the September 1999 issue of Ministry Magazine. Touché is London-based DJ/producer Theo Keating. Currently resident at Brighton's long-running Boutique night, and at The Culture Club in Ghent, Belgium, Theo's DJ-ing takes him around the world. He also records for the Southern Fried label, and runs his own label, Body Clap.

But it all started with The Wiseguys. Formed in 1994 by Touché and Regal, and signed to Wall Of Sound, The Wiseguys released their debut LP ‘Executive Suite’ in 1996. It received critical acclaim, and is now accepted as a cult classic. However, Regal soon departed, and Touché went on to record the follow-up album ‘The Antidote’ solo. It was this album that gave rise to the hit singles ‘Ooh La La’ (#2 in the UK Top 40) and ‘Start The Commotion’ (Billboard Top 10 in the US), and led to Touché remixing artists such as Beck, The Offspring and Gorillaz. But wanting to leave The Wiseguys on a high, Theo decided to finish with the project in 2000, and concentrate on his work as Touché...

A long stint DJ-ing at Fabric followed, and a mix album for the renowned Journeys By DJ series, as well as his own radio shows: on Atlantic 252, and as co-host on XfM's All-City Show. It was during this period that Touché fit in releases for respected labels Subliminal, Heat, and Junior. However, it was Fatboy Slim's Southern Fried Records where Theo finally found a home.
