is, next to the comeback of Man City, the biggest surprise to come out of Manchester in the last few years. David Wolstercrofts and his label Prime Numbers is deconstructing deep house in a way even his idols from Detroit wouldn't be able to. His latest album features people like Amp Fiddler and Dam Funk jamming over soulful and funky samples.
«In The Red» came out in december 2009 on Fat City.
We use to whack that out on the way to the chippie.
What a track! You need to hear this on an amazing sound system, somewhere like Plastic People in London to get full effect. I remember the first time I heard this track played at Plastic People, it blew me away. I turned to my friend and said «What is this?» expecting him to say some rare old funk soul guy, but no it was the bloody BEATLES. Later on I discovered it was Purdie on drums. Thing is with «Plastic» you hear things in a record you would never hear on your own system, I just love the place.
at Leeds Hi-FI Club. Also Amp Fiddler at the same place. It's a real cosy venue with great people and great sound.
Anything that is sang on X Factor.
I wish it was something rootsy but I think it’s more along the lines of David Gray’s and Coldplay’s first LPs.
I think I bought it on a 7inch. Ha ha, I think I still have it.
I need some more diggin years under my belt before I can answer that one.
Ha ha, back in the day we use to spin «Emergency On Planet Earth». Yeah, that thing would go round and round and round...
Jill Scott is something I would turn too for sure. That first LP is just so strong emotionally and musically.
These days anything Dub Step.
Weapons as I call them. A record that can defeat the toughest crowd. It's a record that can without fail have your mum and the biggest music snob dancing at the same time. Well there's no stronger weapons than "La Banda (Fruitmeat / Rope A Dope)". If you don't have this record and your dance floors lag. find it!
Okay, the one I mentioned before was possibly my mothers money. So with my own money I first bought a Michael Jackson album. I forgot which one now as I bough them all straight after each other
As a DJ sure there is many but one joint I play a lot is «Be Thankful For What You Got». It works every time.
Yeah, that’s a tuff one as there's loads to be honest.
