As readers of this blog may be aware – I had a short spell as a resident DJ in a club called RETRO on Commercial Street in Harrogate. I DJ’d alongside a good mate called Jason.
The night was not a huge success – I had people threaten me if I did not play “some f**king happy hardcore” or if I did not play some Rihanna (I once got asked to play some Irish Music – so I went for Mungo’s Hifi). The threat of violence was worth the sense of comradery I got by working with Jason & Amy at Retro – they were the reason I turned up week after week to play my tunes.
So, when I started to produce my own music I wanted to commemorate that chapter in my life – now that it had closed – so I wrote Retro Dub. It got played on BBC York & North Yorkshire tonight and I am chuffed to bits with that. Here it is –
I guess, onward and upwards now.
