Hello! My parents listened exclusively to Jazz when I was growing up, while my
sister played the Atlantic & Philly tunes of the day, which I still adore.
I got into all things Mod and Northern Soul in my teens, and then moved away from
home and met no one with the same music taste as me until I met my partner 15
I now play uptempo R&B, Gospel, latin & funk on original vinyl; I play stuff I want to dance to, and if I don’t love it I won’t play it
Before lockdown I co-ran the Atlantic Soul Collective which hosts nights at venues
across Cornwall; I’ve also DJ’d at various venues including SoulFunktion, Rugby,
Cloud 9, Newquay Weekender, Weymouth Weekender, Amsterdam Soulful, Crazy
Stomp & The Night Owl in Birmingham, as well as numerous summer festivals. Since the pandemic I’ve co-run Rhythm Soul & Funk, which has kind of taken over my
life…it has been an amazing opportunity to make links with awesome people from all
over the world and I wouldn’t change that for anything
We’ve all been exposed to so much new & diverse music we may otherwise not
have heard; my musical taste and record collection have expanded massively over the past 18 months; the sets I want to play are very different now.
