John Digweed

Even if you don't know acid house from Hugh Laurie, you've probably heard of U.K. DJ Digweed, who as half of Sasha & Digweed and as a solo DJ/producer became one of the biggest dance-floor tastemakers and trendsetters of the past decade. (Perhaps you've heard "For What You Dream Of," his Bedrock hit from the Trainspotting soundtrack, or his club anthem "Heaven Scent.") It's been more than 10 years since Sasha & Digweed started the residency at Manhattan's Twilo that seeded the States with the progressive trance/house sound, and since then Digweed has gone on to a successful radio show on Britain's Kiss 100, film-scoring work (and an appearance in the 2000 rave indie Groove) and regular appearances on DJmag's list of the world's top DJs—including No. 1 in 2001.
