Real Name:
Rennie Pilgrem
Profile:
As the son of a jazz trumpeter, Rennie Pilgrim could claim to have music in his blood! He started playing tenor saxophone in his youth immersing himself in 'black' music he formed various funk bands. In the late 80's after hearing the music coming from he Detroit scene, Rennie started to make house techno records with Rhythm Section aka Ellis Dee, Richard Thake and Nick 'Newton' Scott.

Their third release 'Comin' On Strong' was a anthem and would have charted top 40 if they'd known about 'bar codes' on records. With Ellis Dee the crowned king of rave DJs, Rhythm Section played at pretty much every main party between '90-92'. On the same bill as The Prodigy, Moby, Altern 8, Shades Of Rhythm and Bizzare Inc.

In 1993 Rennie founded TCR Recordings as a medium for putting out his own material. His first few releases were funky house with a smattering of breaks lurking in the background. Recording now as 'Thursday Club' he had a big tune with 'Thursday Theme' which was chased by Virgin. Rennie followed this up with 'A Place Called Acid' in 1995.

Rennie has remixed for a wide range of people from Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince to Freq Nasty and Arthur Baker.

Rennie Pilgrem is my freaking idol. Everything he touches is absolute gold. I can't play an entire breaks set without using at least a couple of his records. Forget Oakenfold. This is the man that deserves the spotlight.

Rennie is a musical genius- there is no way around saying it. His remixing and production skills are only surpassed by his creativity. The son of a Jazz trumpeter, Rennie has extreme fluency with all styles of music ranging from dub to rock. His unique style manifests itself in the most legendary breakbeat of all time- Black Widow, Paranoia, Somewhere, A Place Called Acid, and Blowpipe naming just a few of his definitive contributions to breaks. His discography is a textbook of breakbeat artists of today and tomorrow.
