Fast forward to 2022, his passion for the music remains as strong as ever and whilst those heady days of global fame are gone, he remains very much a recognised name as a dance music pioneer. He plays his deep house, progressive house and melodic techno at all of the parties on Koh Phangan, Thailand where he now lives, while pre Covid 2019 saw him in Goa, Ibiza, Lisbon and Amsterdam as well of course all over the U.K. He is the frontman for Peach-one of the biggest trance nights ever in the U.K. and where Armin, Tiesto and Ferry Corsten, amongst others, made their U.K. club debuts. Peach returned in 2014 and now has sell out annual reunions.
He has his own studio and recent studio productions and remixes have seen releases on quality labels such as Patent Skillz, Ballroom, Jeepers, Asymmetric. Dynamica, Krafted, Coldharbour, Moon Island, Souled, Bequem and Endemic.
Graham previously ran the Koolworld, Peach and Good:As record labels where he took numerous tracks from the underground and turned them into commercial successes. One of his biggest singings was Mat Darey’s ‘Liberation”’ which made the UK Top 20. Good:As also managed the UK & Ibiza diaries of Armin, Tiesto and Ferry Corsten from 1998-2001. He was a sought after TV presenter and hosted the clubbing TV show ‘BPM’ which aired on the UK’s number one commercial channel as well presenting a few shows from WMC for MTV.
Graham has been a DJ his whole life and lived through disco, soul, jazz funk and was there at the beginning of the house music phenomenon. In 1985-1986 after years on London’s pirate radio stations he presented the soul show on London’s Capital FM ahead of his move to Kiss 100FM. His real ‘craft learning years’ were at Gullivers in London’s Mayfair from 1980-1989 where he played 6 nights a week, 7 a hours a night to the capitals movers and shakers.
