High Eight (Neil Briggs) started out in breaks as one half of the Future Funk Squad alongside Glen Nicholls, collaborating on early works such as Pulse, the first single on Default Records.
Since then Neil’s solo project has seen him release singles on Re:Connect Records, plus remixes on MBN, Sound Of Habib, En:Vision, and TCR.
As a DJ, High Eight has played across the UK with the likes of Rennie Pilgrem, Chris Carter, Freestylers, and Stanton Warriors, and internationally at events such as the Love Parade in San Francisco, and Earthdance in LA. In 2006 Neil made his Breakspoll debut playing a set at the legendary Fabric club in London.
Neil also hosts The Re:Connect Show on NSB Radio fortnightly on Wednesdays at 21:00 - 23:00 GMT . The show is a two-hour mix of classic and upfront tunes, featuring guest mixes from the broad spectrum of both established and up-and-coming DJ’s.
Forthcoming work includes more singles for Re:Connect, which Neil now runs, plus more remixes due out early 2008.
