LEGENDARY dance music DJ Seb Fontaine takes us back to the late Nineties with a unique playlist of tunes dedicated to Harry Enfield and Kathy Burke’s characters from movie, Kevin & Perry Go Large.
The comedy about the two hormonal pals and their first trip to Ibiza chaperoned by Kevin’s parents, left an indelible mark on clubbers in 2000, just as it does to this day.
Amnesia, the super club that made them superstars, will host another huge party after last years sell out events, dedicated to the coming-of-age movie on September 26. It will feature Dave Pearce, Tall Paul and Seb, who was DJing in the film’s club footage.
The comedy about the two hormonal pals and their first trip to Ibiza, chaperoned by Kevin’s parents, left an indelible mark on clubbers in 2000, just as it does to this day.
We caught up with Seb this week and asked him to tell us about ten anthems from Kevin & Perry Go Large that still resonate today. He says;
“Every time I watch the film it gives me goosebumps. Working with them on the club scenes was fantastic and it was actually me DJing with Kevin and Perry on fake decks. One of those nights you just never forget and I can’t wait to get back to Amnesia Ibiza this Summer.”
Listen to Seb Fontaine’s playlist dedicated to Kevin and Perry below and read what he had to say about each tune.
Reflekt – Need To Feel Loved
So many people’s “Ibiza track”, I even had to make a version for someone’s wedding to walk down the aisle (yes they met in Ibiza!).
Y Trax – Mystery Land
An Amnesia anthem at the time of the movie release!
Signum – Coming on Strong
So strongly featured in the movie club scenes. It really reminds of when we were filming the club scenes for the movie at Amnesia. We set up fake decks for Kevin and Perry, but really they were all filmed on a normal night when we were DJing. That’s why I really do love the club scenes in the movie!
Atlantis – Fiji
This was a Cream anthem when I was resident at Amnesia on Thursday nights (great times).
Mauro Picotto – Lizard
Seeing this club monster in a packed Ibiza club is a sight to behold!
Underworld – Dark and long
I played a version of this last year at the Kevin and Perry gig last year and it was one of the “moments” that really stuck with me.
Sister Bliss – Sister Sister
A beautiful record that just builds and builds … what a bassline!
Tall Paul – Camisra
Tall Paul delivers one of the most fun party tracks of that era.
Paul Johnson – Get Get Down
A terrace classic that still puts a sunny smile on anyone’s face!
Oxia – Domino
I just hear this and get goosebumps. That’s when I start to book flights back to the Island!
DJ Rolando – Knights of the Jaguar
An Ibiza goosebump record that really stands the test of time from around the same time we filmed the movie.
