Mixmaster Morris


Bestival are pleased to welcome back our favourite master of all things ambient, the legendary Mixmaster Morris.

Many of the most influential and significant acts that have shaped electronic music over the past 30 years have Mixmaster Morris to thank for playing a significant role in their early careers. He has consistently championed artists who have gone on to achieve greatness, long before anyone else had heard of them.

His musical career began at 15 years old with The Ripchords way back in the 1970s. He went on to become The Shamen’s tour DJ, write for The NME, record for labels such as Ninja Tune, Rising High, and Positiva. He was part of the team that was Kiss FM when it was still a pirate station. Morris has produced remixes for The Shamen, Lloyd Cole, Higher Intelligence Agency, INXS and Sven Vath and many more and his remix of Autumn Leaves for Coldcut has become an all-time classic.
