Pete Lazonby’s classic ‘Sacred Cycles’ helped define the ethereal, understated melancholic branch of trance otherwise known as progressive house. Ashamed of this legacy, he ran away to New Orleans, the conduit for all African influences on western popular music of the 20th century. Returning to the UK in the mid-noughties, he released new tracks on Germany's legendary Playhouse and Klang Elektronik (2007). In 2009 he launched his own label GHI.
