Pete started off working in notorious London record shops like Daddy Kools and his own Atlas Records while making a good name for himself as a DJ. His reputation as a top producer really took off following his work on Eskimo Recordings as Reverso 68 (with Phil Mison) and as LSB (with Baby G).

His solo material for Maxi Discs is the first original music to be released under his own name and is inspired much more by his love of early house than his previous output. Heavily influenced by the musical direction of his DJ sets over the last year, a desire to really work the dance floor and a certain nostalgia for the house sounds of the 90s (when the site of white doves could make a grown man cry), Yo Drums is all about Pete getting back home after a long night spent driving the crowd wild and then switching on the laptop and the synths and trying to recapture the essence of that feeling in a track. And just like one of his DJ sets Yo Drums mixes elements of house, Italo and disco into a heady potion of dance floor dynamite.
