I have just been confirmed for a #bushwacka headline set at #glastonburyfestival this summer, but I’ll never forget playing there in 2002 with Layo – first we played live in the Dance tent and then all night on Radio One for their live essential mix. I even got to see Radiohead in between sets. What a year! #layoandbushwacka #glastonbury #2002 #radiohead @bbcradio1 @bbcessentialmix @radiohead #festivalseason

The Electronic DJ has been around in one form or another since 1988 – Formerly known as Matthew B during the acid house explosion of the 80s in the UK, he was then one half of seminal tech house duo Layo & Bushwacka!
Bushwacka is best-known for his 1999 dance-floor anthem “Healer” released via Oblong Records.
20 years on from the release, Carl Cox, Sasha, M.A.N.D.Y and Denney have come together to release a big remix package of “Healer” which dropped via Ultra Records earlier this year.
