Matthew ‘Bushwacka!’ Benjamin has always been into music: as a schoolboy in Ladbroke Grove, West London, he was playing percussion in the London School Symphony Orchestra.” I played the Royal Festival Hall, the Barbican. We toured Italy when I was 13. It was a magical time of my life.” It was 1988, and hooked on hip-hop and DJing, his life was about to take a sharp left turn. “In August ‘88 I went to a Rat Pack warehouse party. I left there at 11 o’clock the next morning and come home to an angry mum.” Handing out flyers by night and working in Harrods by day, he began working for the Rat Pack. By 1989’s summer of orbital rave he was DJing for them, as well as on London’s legendary ‘Radio Rental’ pirate station Sunrise FM.
