b. Edwin Makromallis, London, England. This leading UK garage DJ can trace his love of dance music back to the late 80s, when he first began attending illegal raves and warehouse parties. Although he gained his experience working in hardcore and drum ‘n’ bass clubs, Case made his name on the nascent garage scene in the late 90s. He hosted a pirate radio show on Freek FM and released a series of underground hits including the club classic ‘Something In Your Eyes’, before breaking into the mainstream charts in 2001 with his dancehall reworking of the Gorillaz track ‘Clint Eastwood’. The same year he released the inspired compilation Sound Of The Pirates 2, a freewheeling garage mix featuring MCs Sweetie Irie, Ms. Dynamite, Melody, and Spee. His album debut Ed’s Guest List was recorded with 15 guest vocalists, ranging from former Skunk Anansie frontwoman Skin and Republica’s Saffron, to Ms. Dynamite and So Solid Crew’s Harvey. Case also runs his own record label, Killer Instinct.
