“The first DJ in our history to get the crowd jumping and singing along BEFORE we get onstage…and he wears a good hat” – Liam Howlett, The Prodigy
“The reason I’m in work here.” – Zane Lowe, MTV / Radio One
If Eddy Temple-Morris were writing this himself, he’d have to say he discovered penicillin, staged the first cross-channel flight and once had a dog called Snoopy – largely because he’d be mixing other people’s biogs in with his own.
Since launching Xfm’s legendary (and twice Sony Award nominated) dance-rock crossover radio show, The Remix 15 years ago, Eddy’s become the undisputed champion not just of genre-hopping but of genre-breeding, slipping enough pills into dance music’s pint until it finds itself curled up in the corner of the room with rock’s dangly bits in its mouth.
Kasabian say he’s “a legend”, Liam Howlett from The Prodigy says he’s “the best DJ they have ever taken on tour”, DJ Fresh calls Eddy “my musical guru” and Snow Patrol’s frontman Gary Lightbody calls his remix work “twisted genius”. It’s why the man behind Ibiza Rocks called Eddy “the future of Ibiza” and chose Eddy as its first ever resident, and why he was Pendulum‘s first headline tour DJ. He chosen as tour support to The Prodigy for The Day Is My Enemy UK tour and to interview Liam for Spotify.
Eddy plays bass for and remixes with the band, Losers. Described by James Lavelle as ‘The next UNKLE’, Losers tunes have been used on TV shows all over the world, from Game Of Thrones, CSI, Bones, and Chuck to Black Sails, The Reign and Made In Chelsea. Their song Azan was the official song of the 2012 Olympic Games BMX Competition, and used by the film Hercules.
Eddy Temple-Morris, then. He’s gifted. He’s passionate. He’s a fucking brilliant DJ. And he’s incredibly proud of that Nobel Peace Prize.
