4Hero: Interview & Bloc09 set

4Hero speaks to Bloc about music influences, the birth of hardcore and the return of the Manix moniker with Marc Mac.

For those who don't know - when it comes to raw, forward-thinking rave music, the UK owes an innumerable debt to 4Hero. Originally comprised of Marc Mac, Dego, Iain Bardouille and Gus Lawrence, the North London outfit stand alongside the likes of Shut Up & Dance and The Scientist (aka DJ Hype and Phil ‘Pure Science’ Sebastiane) as the very first pioneers of the bass-loaded, sample-heavy form of breakbeat music that would come to be known as hardcore.
