Rik Harris Speaks out

When I look back now, playing Bass in bands was the best thing in the world. At the time, though, I hated relying on other band members Ė especially the singers!. But I suppose that was good because it led me into other forms of music. That's when I started hearing Italian House with their amazing pianos.

When youíre on the dance floor nutted and DJ Professor-Rock me Steady is playing...well, oh my god!. So two months later and I pressed up to two thousand singles of 'Come on People' and 'Iíve got the Real Feel'. So what am I going to do with them? I peddled them around to a few distribution companies in London - that was the easy bit Ė until none sold! London in 1992 was getting into what is now Jungle/Drum & Bass. Uplifting piano is out! This isnít easy! So what was I supposed to do - get a real job?

Then something strange happened. One of the distribution companies telephoned me: "Hey, Rik, we want every copy you have! They're going mad for them up north!" Until then Iíd only thought of London for sales. So here I was in the south, seemingly on my own, with the whole dance scene going 'dark' on me. Yet I was selling records miles away (OK its not that far but it seemed like it at the time!) So I got some of my band members to go out with me as a PA around London. With hindsight that probably wasn't the best of ideas, playing uplifting piano house in places like the Lazerdrome in South London,  weíd clear the dancefloor in a flash!

Life changed one weekend when touring up north. We did the usual things, went on stage and started playing. Everyone went crazy! Singing along, jumping around, coming up and saying ĎThank you!í  It's obvious now, with all my sales up north, they not only knew the songs they loved them! Iíve since played all over the world, even at Wembley Arena - but nothing will ever compare with that weekend. Over the years I have teamed up with the likes of Ramos, Supreme, Hixxy, Billy Bunter, Vinygroover and many others. Itís been a privilege to be involved in hardcore from the beginning . Itís a brilliant scene - especially now.  The one thing Iíll always remember was a girl - coming up to me at a club saying she had my record at home which she just played repeatedly and would cry listening to it! Moments like that made life worth living!

When I'm not playing synthesisers nowadays I'm driving Landrovers or Hovercrafts. In the evenings Iíll be fishing or playing Dungeons and Dragons! I'm still producing music and have started combining my two favourite styles, trance and hardcore. I wonder if Bass guitar might work as well?
