Moloko Tour DJ Winston Hazel
The great entertainer, dancer and MC had been fully impressed by the amount of gorgeous looking women in the house, who do flood the city twice a year during the days of the biggest fashion trade fair in the world.
Winston is the Tour DJ of the UK Band Moloko and he had worked once a month at Groovetech, what had once been one of the finest Radio Stations on the Internet.

destroyed by gods: a Sheffield music mix with sleeve notes

By fusing his studio knowledge with Parrot's understanding of the local scene - Parrot had broken house music in Sheffield along with DJ partner Winston, and had charted with another Sheffield dance act called Funky Worm in 1988 - they made this track specifically for the dancefloors at Sheffield clubs like Jive Turkey and Cuba.
While never feted like the acid house fests over at the Haçienda - the Haç was its own pretty special venue after all, while the Sheffield nights were movable feasts that flitted between dives like Occasions and the sumptuous splendour of the City Hall ballroom - Parrot and Winston played as crucial a role as anyone in bringing house and techno to the north of England.
...
Forgemasters - the band - was Rob Gordon, Winston Hazel (DJ partner of Sweet Exorcist's Parrot), and Sean Maher.
...
It had the club (Occasions on a Saturday), the shop (Warp on Division Street), the producer (Rob Gordon), the DJs (Parrot and Winston), the designers (Designers Republic), the godfather (Richard Kirk)... in short, it had the complete package.
...
Hosted by DJs Parrot and Winston, it was a large-scale monthly housed in the City Hall's neo-classical, subterranean ballroom, and while it helped break house music in Sheffield, it was built on a range of funk, soul and jazz styles that appealed to a latent Northern Soul spirit.

Now firmly back at his monthly residency at SCUBA in Sheffield, Winston continues to tear up dance floors, ...dropping a blend of local science mixed up with a pure erotic house set.He is can also be found regularly headlining at many venues across Europe, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Italy, etc!
HIS-STORYIt seems only fitting that Winston Hazel should have started his career as a DJ at his school youth club as a teenager in the late 1970s.Winston, a.k.a.The Funkmaster General, has always been ahead of the pack in his comprehension of what tunes make a dancefloor move: a wise head on young shoulders and the natural leader of a generation of Sheffield DJs and musicians, his musical evolution may have had inauspicious origins, but then Winston wouldn't mind sharing that with you - he may wear his talent on his sleeve, but shouting it from the rooftops is not his style.Nor is it a Sheffield thing you see, and Winston has always remained true to his roots.
Having progressed from the school gym to working the national alldayer funk circuit, Winston took a break from rotating funk and soul to spinning on his head with his breakdance crew SMAC 19.The crew's two-year run took in break battles with the likes of Goldie and tours of Northern Europe, Scandinavia and Ireland.Back on home soil in the Republic of South New Yorkshire, Winston moved from bodily contortions back to turntable manoeuvres to form a club partnership with fellow Sheffield DJ, Parrot that was to prove crucial to the city's dance music development.
The mid 80s saw Winston and Parrot spearhead a house and techno assault on the clubs of the North and Scotland which spawned such groundbreaking nights as Jive Turkey, The Steamer (with Graeme Park), Club Superman, Funky Precedent, Deep, Cuba and Occasions - and a whole generation of new DJs and producers including Asterix & Space (latterly RAC and now Swag) and a young scrap of a lad called DJ Pipes.
...
At the same time, Winston was further fanning the funk furnace with three shows a week on dominant pirate radio station SCR, setting the airwaves alight with the sounds that were firing the dancefloors.So to the inevitable move to the studio, where Winston began by constructing the seminal funk of "The Forgemasters Track with No Name", the first release on Warp records and the shape of dance music to come.Further tracks followed - with fellow Forgemasters Robert Gordon and Sean Maher, and as The Step with Parrot and Sarah Jay - while away from the studio, Winston continued to maintain his high profile on the national DJ circuit, breaking the new Sheffield sound across the country and going on to form the collective of DJs, musicians and nightclub artists known as Stone Jamm.
...
Never willing to compromise the depth of his music for a quick thrill or fast dollar, Winston was discerning in his choices of club outlets, favouring community-based basement parties in preference to aircraft hangers filled with football players and soap stars.Such choices have ensured his continued position at the cutting-edge of the dance music be it in the studio, on the decks or on the dancefloor.Currently writing tunes with Olive drummer Rossman, the two have recently completed remixes for The All Seeing I and Warp Records, where Winston - alongside Parrot and Warp's Steve Beckett and Rob Mitchell - has also just compiled the Warp Influences album to celebrate ten years of the Sheffield label and the music that it sprung from.
...
Having hooked up with Moloko to support the band on their Surround Sound Tour of Europe, Winston also collaborated with Occasions soul mate Pipes as the All Seeing I soundsystem - providing support for the band on tour, breaking-out into national clubs in their own right and teaching Pipes not to be so cynical about life.
