An early protégé of Goldie's while the two worked on production at 4 Hero's Reinforced Records during the early '90s, Peshay's style of jungle/drum'n'bass, influenced both by house and the more polished forms of jazz fusion, allies itself both with Goldie and 4 Hero. A breakbeat DJ from early in his career, Peshay debuted on wax with Reinforced in 1993, recording the Protegé EP before joining Goldie's Metalheadz stable and releasing its second single, "Psychosis." He also recorded several 12"s with LTJ Bukem's Good Looking Records, including "The Piano Tune" and "19.5." Though hampered by a serious illness which sidelined him during jungle's breakout year of 1995, Peshay returned in 1996, remixing singles from Goldie's Timeless ("Inner City Life" and "Angel") and contributing tracks to the Mo'Wax compilation Headz II. Signed up to Mo'Wax, Peshay released the "Miles from Home" single in mid-1998, and worked on material with Photek's Rupert Parkes. The label's practical dissolution by the following year led to delays for the expected full-length, though by July 1999, Peshay's debut album -- also called Miles from Home -- appeared on the Island Blue label. Five more 12" singles appeared on the label, including "Switch," and "Truly," as well as numerous others for Photek Productions. De rigueur for top-flight jungle producers, he also formed his own label, Cubik Music Productions which released his own 12" singles and his next two albums, Fuzion in 2002, and Jammin' in 2004. Besides the releases on his own label, Peshay issued singles and collaborations on Infrared, Black Widow, Reinforced, and Formation. He also committed to remixes for other artists including Galliano, Jay Dee, Carl Craig, Goldie, Ingrid Schroeder, DJ Die, DJ Shadow, and Courtney Pine. In March of 2013, V Records issued Peshay's six-track EP Funkster; it was followed by the three-track Generation EP on Tru Thoughts and his fourth full-length of the same name in December. ~ John Bush
