What track first made a major impression on you growing up and what can you recall about that time and how you heard it?


MFSB’s ‘Mysteries Of The World’ album released 1980 made a major Impression on me. My Brother bought the album and I heard a track on there called ‘Old San Juan’ and instantly fell in love with it.


Which track first inspired you to get into music seriously and think about it as a career?

I don't think there was any track in particular that actually inspired me to do this as a career but the first record I ever owned was Donna Summer’s ‘I Feel Love’, which my mum bought for me on 7”. Still cherished and still playing it - lol :-) 




What’s your favourite dance floor track right now and what makes it stand out?

‘Faith; by CeCe Rodgers with Mr Junior White on production. It’s a track which has a lot of meaning for me.


What track do you wish you’d produced and why?

There’s two tracks I never tire of and would’ve loved to have produced. One is ‘Beautiful People’ produced by Masters At Work and the other is ‘Optimistic’ by The Sounds Of Blackness. Both convey very powerful messages about how the world could be if we as people ‘looked a little deeper’ into ourselves. ‘Optimistic’s message is you can achieve whatever you want in life as long as you believe.
