Seb Fontaine (born Jean-Sebastien Douglas Fontaine; 14 July 1970)[1] is an English electronic music producer and DJ.

Biography[edit]

Fontaine had his first DJ gig at Crazy Larry's on the Kings Road, London, but he soon progressed to residency at the Fridge in Brixton in 1989.[2]

Having worked at various other clubs in London (Subteranea, Billion Dollar Babes), he eventually became a resident DJ at one of the UK's largest club nights at Cream,[3] and also went on to feature at its Ibiza nights.

In 2000, he joined BBC Radio 1 as a specialist dance DJ, hosting a weekly show, as well as broadcasts from Radio 1 outside broadcasts in Ibiza,[4] before leaving in 2004.

He has also released a number of records, predominantly mix albums,[5] and acted as a remix producer on tracks including the Outhere Brothers.[6] He is also associated with the brand Type which he has used for naming both club nights and album releases.
