He’s picked up the moniker of the ‘Buckfast poster boy’, whilst also receiving airplay from the likes of Craig Charles and Krafty Kuts and his remixes and originals have raked in numerous number ones in the Hypeddit & Juno download charts, award nominations and radio plays around the globe.
Irish born but Edinburgh based, DJ & Producer Gramophone Soul took time out of his busy schedule to answer a few quick questions and settle the debate once and for about which nightclub really is the best ever.
Fuck thats a tough one. I Can’t answer that! Favourite tune of all time though, Marvin Gaye – Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.
Not something I’ve seen playing, but I once tried to hand my stinky sweaty trainer to Laurent Garnier, I was absolutely away with it though to be fair ha ha. I can still remember the look on his face!
Fatboy Slim – Praise You, also You’ve Come A Long Way Baby is my favourite album of the 90s
Probably working on a certain car production line, doing shift work, spending 11hrs a day adjusting the left hand door. I know shit about cars, but can fix your door…the left hand one.
Probably the change from Vinyl to Digital. The first CDJs were a game changer for me.
The Arena, Armagh, Northern Ireland. Was fuckin mental… nuff said.
The Arena in Northern Ireland back in 90s
Got to play at the Miami Winter Music Conference one year by default. My friend knew the DJ playing at one of the hotels and he asked me to fill in for him. Got to jam it for an hour at WMC.
Going clubbing at an early age and seeing some fantastic DJs made me want to get involved.
I have loads, but probably Norman Cook and Dave ‘Switch’ Taylor. Hearing both of them for the first time blew my mind.
The Switch remix of Like Sugar by Chaka Khan
Marvin Gaye for sure.
Got a few things in the pipeline. Two new EPs coming out on Cuttin’ It Fine Records & Breakbeat Paradise Records, keep your eyes peeled…
