Barry Gilbey Interview

A bald bearded Sheffield Wednesday football fan, Barry Gilbey is know to be 'churning' out remixes, bootlegs or re-edits almost instantly. Music fans will know him for his storming hybrid tech-house-breaks productions on his revered Sheffield-based label, Choo Choo, and from releases under a range of pseudonyms, including Mara, Pappa & Gilbey, London Squeak Motif, Jarrod & Gilbey and several others.

Barry's productions are played the world over by everyone from Erick Morillo to Deep Dish and Meat Katie to Sasha. His vocal projects with Sara Whittaker-Gilbey as Mara have been huge underground smashes and his other productions as Prototype and Hyperion have found supporters across the board. Other productions with BT, Anthony Pappa, Revolt, Bill Hamel and Alan Bremner have also meant that, while Barry has been firmly placed in the A-List's record boxes, he hasn't had much time to tend to his own.
