Lionrock were a house/big beat act and are the brainchild of DJ / record producer Justin Robertson (b. 11 Jun 1968 - aka The Prankster & The Deadstock 33's). His career has taken many twists and turns - beginning as a Manchester DJ & his early-90s clubs, Spice & Most Excellent (influential cornerstones of the dance movement). The Chemical Brothers, then students in the city, cited him as their mentor. His Rebellious Jukebox club - also in Manchester - pre-empted the Heavenly Social and the mid 90s trend for mish-mashing musical styles.
