After rocking a couple of sets playing exclusively 7″ vinyl at their ‘Digga
Please’ parties, DJs Shepdog (Nice Up) and Kombine (Jazz Cafe)
officially inducted me into the crew – so it’s only right I represent
with a mix based on my recent live set for them!
Expect pure block party vibes from this one: Classic Hip Hop
laced with Soul, Funk, Disco, B-Boy breaks, Reggae/Dancehall and 90′s
RNB, No FX, no multitracking, just a crate of crackly 45s mixed,
scratched & juggled (with a couple of sneaky edits so you don’t have
to hear my records skip!).
The cover image is composed of photos of every record played,
displayed in the order they appear in the mix – get a closer look at it HERE
There’s plenty more where this came from so look out for volume 2!

I was recently commissioned by Urban Edge Promotions to create this 10 minute
long mix of classic and well-known 80′s B-Boy tracks for a series of
forthcoming live shows – I ended up going in on it pretty hard, every
track on here is re-edited or remixed in one way or another! As usual
with my mixes there is also a fair bit of juggling & scratching
involved, but not too much as the focus here is on the dancers.

In the summer of 2012 I was invited to dj at the Chocolate Bear Productions annual barbecue here in London, alongside a ridiculously sick line up of djs – we were all asked to choose a genre to play, I went for New Jack Swing, and it went a little something like this…
For those that don’t know, the New Jack Swing sound of the late 80′s and early 90′s brought together Hip Hop and R & B for the first time, to great commercial success. I first encountered it as a 9 year old, when I had the Ghostbusters 2 soundtrack featuring Bobby Brown’s ‘On My Own’ on heavy rotation in my oversized walkman! This mix includes a lot of the biggest dancefloor classics of the time alongside a few not so well-known joints, and of course plenty of Teddy Riley productions.
Big shout to Shernay & all the djs who rocked at the CBP BBQ – Druskillz, Kidkanevil, Mr Thing, Kutmah, Bruce Wayne, Chris P Cuts, Shredded Pete, Martyn & Leroy
