My love of soul and mod music started when I was about 12 during the mod revival although I was first mesmerised a couple of years earlier when some scooters broke down in my village. The scooters were adorned with chrome bars, lights, flags and pendants hanging off whip aerials and fancy paint jobs. I remember me Dad muttering fucking mods. I had no idea what mods were then but I knew it was the thing for me :)
As soon as I became a mod I started buying records. One of the first was Tamla Motowns 20 Mod Classics, admittedly only because it had a massive mod target on the front! This gave me my first dose of soul music and I’ve never looked back.
I started djing by accident really at my own scooter club do’s in the late 80s as one night a DJ didn’t turn up so I stood in. During the 90s I started playing at Brighton Beach mod club where I was introduced to so many awesome tunes, I also started to play at National scooter rallies which I still love doing today.
For the last 7 years I have been a resident DJ at Empty Bottles soul club in Leeds where we have just had our first proper allnighter, hopefully there will be many more.
Over the years I have had the honour of djing many of the top mod/soul clubs in the UK. These include the legendary Pow Wow club, The Fed,Burnley,Bolton and Rugby allnighters, Mousetrap in London, Bridlington Soul Weekender, Glasgow mod weekender, Mojo in Hull and Twisted Grooves in Manchester to name but a few! Last year I was lucky enough to Dj in Copenhagen and Australia which were truly fantastic experiences.
Anyway I can’t wait to play some tunes at the Kitten Casino in June and add that to the list.
My top five plays at moment
1.Jonathan Capree-Gonna build me a mountain
2.Ricky Dee-I’m gonna make her mine
3.Dixie Nightingales-I don’t know
5.Otis Lee-Hard Row to Hoe
