I’ve been buying records and tapes since 1982 and my first love is UK Hip Hop although i consider myself an all genre selector. Currently using Technics 1200 mk2 and a Numark Scratch mixer, finally learning some technical skills so i can deliver some seamless blends during live events and podcasts. As well as Music, I am passionate about the 80s, my dog and collect trainers/retro clothing.

He DJ’ed on the premier local Hip Hop broadcast on KUNM’s Street Beat from 2001 until 2009, until receiving felony charges for allegedly thieving from the stations record vault which contained promo vinyl dating back to 1973, many of which had not seen the light of day since. The charges were dismissed. He currently owns and operates Serpent City Records, focused on pressing Hip Hop vinyl. The latest 7” release is an ode to the old days of record collecting titled, “Robbin’ Disco Breaks” which takes a cue from the prior criminal charges.

Ste – Se7en Inch Collective
Check out last years Se7en Inch Collective Interview
I am a musician, music teacher and recording studio owner (now also producing music for and running a small, independent record label!) I love Soul, Funk, Blues, R&B, 60s, Latin, Ska and Reggae music. I love it so much that I try and use my skills and resources to make recordings in the styles that I enjoy, with the express aim of making them sound like material from the original era and good enough that DJs will play them at club nights and have cool people dance to them. I had a lot of enjoyment from making this music. I hope that you enjoy listening to it.

I started buying records in 1974 as a 9 year old although I had been given a bunch of singles and an old portable record player prior to that. By the age of 12 I would spend all my pocket money on singles and it started an obsession with music. Although I buy albums and 12 inches the 7 inch 45 is my favourite format as it captures a moment and sounds better to me than any other format.
I do a monthly radio show on www.jfsr.co.uk called The Dont Stop The Feeling Show playing boogie soul funk etc. I was scratch dj for Big Dog a band that was fronted by former ruthless rap assassins member Kermit and I did the scratching on Paul Oakenfolds hit Starry Eyed Surprise…
Chakalaka Funk is a club night run by Simon Hodge (producer of The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show on BBC 6Music) which was packing them in at the Jazz Bar in Edinburgh with a mix of live acts and DJs spinning funk, boogie, brazil, ska, afro and everything in between. Hoping to return SOON!
