b. Robin Alders, the Netherlands. Alders is a regular DJ at Utrecht, Holland’s Vlanen venue. Jaydee’s beautiful trance cut ‘Plastic Dreams’ crossed over massively on the Belgian R&S Records label in 1993, with its distinctive Hammond B3 organ signature. It was his first release; previously he had been three times winner of the Dutch arm-wrestling championship, and a member of the national baseball team. Since the early 80s he had worked on Dutch radio, proffering a critically lauded selection of house music. He turned to recording when his radio show was axed. After ‘Plastic Dreams’, the first release on the reactivated UK arm of R&S, he also released the ‘Acceleration By Trance’ 12-inch as Graylock on Logic Records’ Save The Vinyl imprint. Far from usual rave convention, this contained the ominous ‘Everybody Feel Free’ warning on the flipside. This boasted a spoken word narrative on the dangers of E, which also plotted Alders’ semi-autobiographical downfall through the drug. A second Graylock release, ‘The Movement’, emerged on Belgium’s Mental Radio Records, before he returned as Jaydee for ‘The Hunter’ for Dutch label Clubstitute.
