Essence, how did it start?
1991 … it came about after 4 like minded ppl got together and looked at what we thought at the time was a real homegrown proper production rave night with people in the know and scene.
The first real night was at the old ritzy as a starting point … it went that well that we approached the warehouse who had already heard about the first night and they said yes for us to hold our future events at the warehouse.
