    OMG, Coldcut! Their Journeys by DJ mix is the very definition of a journey, and their Revolution mix proves that the journey can tell a story, be political and hold a message running through it.

    Hmmm,

    DJ's/Producers

    In terms of 'having similar tastes to' - The Nextmen, I love the way they switch from Funk to Soul to Ragga to Hip-hop to ...

    In terms of 'always playing a belter' - Greg Wilson

    In terms of technical skills/selection - DJ Format / DJ Yoda / Coldcut / DJ Cheeba / Moneyshot

    Club

    Hmmm, probably wither Basement 45 in Bristol or the Thekla (Coldcut doing Journeys by VJ there last year was amazing)

    Label

    At the moment Goodgroove, Funk Weapons, Freestyle, Stones Throw
    In the past Grand Central (RIP),

    I feel like I'm coming at this from a very different place to most people on here...

    Nah mate, I may be pure house but I get you.

    Greg Wilson is a legend, Funk Weapons is an awesome label (check out some stuff by B Team on house label Odds & Ends if you like that, they are All Good Funk Alliance under another name).

    <namedrop>Oh, yeah, and Roy Moneyshot started learning to scratch in my kitchen</namedrop>



    You living in Bristol mate?

    I can relate to this when I attended my first live concert in '99. The Chemical Brothers were touring to promote the Surrender LP (probably my favourite album of theirs) and they were playing a show in Vancouver. I was 14 and had been listening to "rave music" for a couple years at that point, so when I found out my folks got me a plane ticket w/concert ticket for this show as a birthday gift I was pretty stoked. Back then I lived in northern B.C. where no concerts happen so it was a pretty big deal.

    Anyways the show was amazing, DJ Shadow opened things up he was dropping fresh turntablism with recognizable hits like "Midnight in a perfect world"- I'd never seen anything like it! But when the chemical brothers hit the stage the place just exploded. It was just these two guys in front of you having the time of their lives rocking out on these monstrous rigs of equipment that would put most studios to shame. And for the first time it actually soaked in that this music I love so much can be created by people just like myself, and the effect that performing it can have on an audience really hooked me into the culture.... and I was 100% clean for the whole evening!!!! This was the single most pivitol inspirational moment for me as musician/dj.

    As soon as I got home I started the long and windy road of teaching myself how to produce music. I was also hooked on dance music and the culture forever. The DJing didn't come until several years later when I just decided to start doing something with my collection of mp3s. 10 years later and I'm in deep as a DJ, producer and promoter- still lovin it!

    Things like this helped it along...
