Bio: Ed "Fire" Barnett started DJ'ing in early 2001 at the tender age of 15. The first records to grace his decks were of the Happy Hardcore variety (96-98 particularly took his fancy). He continued to play this until the Summer of 2001 when Hard House shot into his life. This chunky, underground style of
Hard House that BK produced grabbed his fancy immediately. It all started from an accidental purchase of a Hard House CD.

He spread the word over the next few months at various locations in South Wales. Code Red 2001, being a Hardcore rave, did not openly welcome Hard house. He realised that his future was not in raves anymore and needed a change of scene.

I.M.P. Hard (the local record shop) was his first live performance on the wheels of steel where he played along side DJ's twice the age of him but still always got the main set of every night. It consisted of a relatively minimal sound system and a smokey back room in a Pub in Brecon. This new found fame made him popular with the locals who craved something more which Pop couldn't provide. This was then relocated and renamed to 'Chunky But Funky' @ Harley's in early 2002. The I.M.P. DJ's followed Fire to the Club and supported him each night. Alas this was never meant to be and the Chunky But Funky crew has since dispersed leaving Brecon none the wiser.

After coming 3rd in the Funkydory, Cardiff based DJ competition 2002, Fire has managed to work his way into the clubs of Cardiff (Bionic, Ultra Sonik, Bat Country). A slow but steady start in late 2002 has resulted in his name becoming progressively more known and respected.

In early 2003 a new night in Brecon was created that goes by the name of KLASSIC. As soul promoter of the night (under jurisdiction of the owners of The Lounge) Fire is in control of when the nights occur and with what DJs, therefore changing the vibe of each night individually. So far he has had guests from Cardiff such as Fixed Rate, The Rehab DJs and MC NRG – Dreamscape/Helter Skelter/Devotion an all round underground HERO. Soon to be in double figures, Klassic has taken off nicely in such a quaint farm orientated area.

Fire flaunts a number of different styles. He mixes a combination of Happy Hardcore (96-Modern), Old Skool Hardcore and a selection of Dutch/Hardcore Techno with the same enthusiasm and originality as that of his Hard House and Trance. As his styles clearly show, he remains loyal to the Underground sound that all the Dreamscape and Helter Skelter DJ's and MC's preached. His styles of DJ'ing, MC'ing, scratching, mixing and variety of tricks makes him a DJ to look out for (unless you suffer from motion sickness), there's always a surprise to be had.
