Ben Watt (above) is one half of Everything But The Girl, whose music has become increasingly informed by house and breakbeat culture since 1994 (notably Missing, Walking Wounded and the Massive Attack collaboration, Protection). His DJ work began in 1996. He made his first appearance at James Lavelle's Dusted and then took over from Howie B (co-producer on Walking Wounded) as a resident DJ-in-rotation at West London's Sunday Club @ Paradise, spinning fortnightly sets of freestyle Drum n Bass and Deep House. He took the formula round the world on various legs of EBTG's Walking Wounded World Tour, playing nightly DJ sets to open their show, often adding free late-night aftershow slots at numerous Stateside clubs (incl. Giant Step in NYC, Science in Santa Monica, Metro in Chicago). In August 1997 he took his own Drum n Bass style into a well-received London residency at Bar Rumba's monthly Friday breakbeat night, Transition. Lazy Dog has given his love of Deep House a fresh platform, and has spawned many of the ideas on EBTG's latest album, Temperamental.
