I’ve been collecting vinyl and putting together mixtapes, of varying music for the last fifteen years. I used to play trance but the trance boom (commercial takeover) in 1999 put me off what was once a creative source of music. The music became predictive, poppy, dull and formulaic.
Whilst studying in Nottingham, England I played funk, soul and hiphop at parties and in bars in the Hockley area. I also played at a monthly night with a friend at the Hard to Find Café Bar called Random Tandem where we could play anything we liked from the past, as long as people knew it and would love it. This gave us chance to be as creative and imaginative as we wanted to be. We also played breaks at the Blueprint club which was a real experience and a right laugh.
Since moving back to Sheffield i’ve been re-energised by the rise and rise of dubstep and the creativity that has come with it (although no more wobblers or chainsaws please!). I’ve also grown to love the spacey and funky sounds (that are a bit more musical and accessible) that have come with ‘liquid’ dnb over the last few years and at the moment there seems to be a limitless supply of new tunes coming out.
At the moment I’m looking for a residency in a bar or club in the Sheffield area. I can play funk, old school hip-hop, breaks and ‘liquid’ (I don’t like this term>pidgeon holing again!) Drum n Bass.
More mixes to come!
