My first introduction to dance music was a cassette tape that my sister’s friend brought back from London one summer in 1989. It was called “Techno! the New Dance sound Of Detroit”. I played that tape to death! I was 14 years old and all I wanted to hear after that was electronic music. I particularly loved ‘Blake Baxter - Ride Em Boy’ with its repetitive vocal sample.
‘Moby - Go’, ‘Adamski - Killer’, ‘MARRS - Pump up The Volume’ and ‘Steve Silk Hurley - Jack Your Body’ were also tracks that made me fall in love with electronic music and most importantly made me want to dance.
Now my influences are too many to mention as I DJ numerous genres including electro, techno, disco and house with some breakbeat thrown in for good measure! I’m loving the resurgence in electro music at the moment. Back when I started playing electro in Vancouver (1999) there were so few electro dance floor bangers, whereas now theres new releases every second day.
What was the inspiration for this mix?
I went for deep electro rather than tough beat as Recreational Therapy guests are “encouraged to explore a bit further into their collections with an opportunity to step away from the dance floor if they desire”. I wanted to create something that you can listen to without having to jump around like a demented pogo stick.
How long have you been DJing and making music now?
I started buying records in 1996 and started DJing out in 1998. I’ve always played vinyl and don’t know how to use CDJs. So buying records and DJing are one and the same for me. I started making tracks about 10 years ago after doing several course in both Reason and Ableton. I bought quite a lot of Elektron gear in the past three or four years and have lots of half-tracks made, I just need to start finishing them!
What are you listening to right now?
My Recreational Therapy podcast. I generally listen to 3 or 4 sets a day on Soundcloud. Luckily I can wear headphones in the office and I always listen to music during my commute. I try to record at least one mix a week so I have lots of new sounds to listen to.
Who or what is inspiring you musically and otherwise at the moment?
People like Jensen Interceptor are a big inspiration. He is churning out releases almost every week and they are all brilliant. So he inspires me to get at least one out. Galaxian is also an inspiration - he recently put up a post where he spoke of not having consumed any alcohol in 5 years and how positive an effect it had on his life and his production. Something I could put into practice myself!
Where can we see or hear your next project? Any upcoming releases or gigs?
I don’t really play out in London. I moved here just over a year ago and its quite hard to get involved in the various cliques and collectives. There are so many DJs at the moment its crazy. I get to DJ every time I go back to Ireland which is great. My focus this year is to keep putting out mixes on various Soundcloud podcasts and really focusing on the production side of things. I will run one or two gigs myself either in London or Europe this year and invite some friends and a headline act to perform.
Anything else you would like to share?
I would just like to say thank you for letting me join the Recreational Therapy family and wish you the best in the future.
