Founded 1991, Fantazia held the largest ever raves, during 91-93, culminating in One Step Beyond (30k). Other parties include the Big Bang@SECC, Summertime, Bournemouth (as seen ITN News). Fantazia also organised the rave on Inspector Morse and has the largest amount of rave footage in the UK. We later went on to launch the massive selling House Collection & Club Classics series of compilations.
