I first got hooked on the house scene way back in '87 and, although I loved the harsh electronic sounds of Acid House, my real love was for deep house classics such as Joe Smooth's "I Try", Paris's "Learn To Love" and Larry Heard's "Mystery Of Love". These tracks became the blueprint for the sounds I've been spinning over the last 20 years.
I started my Djing career in 1991 when persuaded by Centerforce's Babyface (Terry White R.I.P.) to get on the decks and start spinning. Dates at underground clubs around East London quickly followed and I was up and running. My big break came in 1992, when I was spotted Djing at a party by the legendry Sunday Scene promoters "Happy Dayz" they offered me a spot at their gig at the Curtain Road Warehouse. This was promptly followed by residencies at the Gass Club and the Arches and eventually led to me being given spots at the London's Ministry of Sound and Passion in Leicester to name but a few. In the summer of 1995, I was employed by Club UK for their tour of Ibiza and spent 5 months spinning the US House and Garage sound, securing residencies at the Kanya Bar, and super clubs Space and Amnesia as well as various guest spots on the Island. I've also produced tracks for well established labels including Azuli and Champion Records.
I am currently DJing and recording under the moniker 2 Good Souls
2 Good Souls
Since exploding onto the scene back in 2008, British House duo Owen Clarke and Lindz Taylor have set about to prove that in this industry, it is the good souls that survive. Their knowledge and experience of House Music expands over 20 years and they aim to keep this influential genre at the forefront of the club scene.
Since they formed, 2GS have played at numerous parties, bars and clubs in the UK and have also held many of their own successful nights. Past events have seen them spin at Miss Money Penny's, Danny Rampling's Love Groove Dance Party, Azuli's World Global Guide Tour,’ “Saturday Sessions”, Culture Shock, “Good Times”, "Release Yourself", “Just Beats," and "We Love Pacha".
2GS are regulars at London's Ministry of Sound playing at the biggest nights in the business including Defected in the House, Soul Heaven, Mutants, Toolroom Knights & Release Yourself. These have seen them billed alongside, Copyright, Shapeshifters, Moby, Barbara Tucker, Candi Staton, Louie Vega, Sandy Rivera, Quentin Harris, Neil Pierce, Sy Sez, Andy Ward, Aaron Ross, Simon Dunmore, John Dahlback, Laidback Luke, Fedde Le Grande, Dimitri from Paris, Bob Sinclar, Kenny Dope, Mark Knight, Funkagenda, Micheal Woods, Tom Middleton, Lottie and many more. In 2010, 2 Good Souls played every month at thw world renowned club.
Whilst comfortably established within the UK, the uplifting sound of 2GS has not been restricted to the humble soil of old Blighty. They have taken their unique blend of House grooves global to exotic places such as India, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Singapore and coolclubbing destinations such as Russia, Greece, France and of course the white isle "Ibiza?.
The natural progression for any DJ is production and they have taken to this with ease, already creating a trademark sound which complements the music in their sets. The duo have had releases on Daddy Funk Records, Axis Tracks, Kontinous Music, Kidology,, Mjuzieek, Sexy Trash,, Maqina & Mutated Music. Their track "Nympho" had great reviews, being championed by Roger Sanchez and Alistair Whitehead as well as Radio 1 airplay.
Remixes include Sandy Spady’s “Direct Hit”, Kort & Andrea Love’s “I Can’t help myself,” Billy Newton Davis “When Your This Big”, Kathy Brown “Feel The Music", Lindo Martinez's "Sunrise" and most recently Paradise 45's "To Be In Love" Their remix of Shane D’s cover of Deliriums “Silence” was a huge hit in Ibiza in 2011 and their seld entitled EP has had huge support from David Penn and Roger Sanchez.
In late 2012 2GS set up thier own Del Amore Records imprint. The label is to serve as an outlet for their own material, associate producers and fresh up and coming talent. Thier first release "Satisfaction" was a huge smash for them becoming an underground anthem in its own right.
Current artists on the label include Kathy Brown, Kele Le Roc, Roland Clark, Marc Evans, 2 Good Souls, Paul Hunt, Stereo Mutants, Dave Doyle, Leisuregroove, Booker T, Sy Sez, David Shaw, Diane Waite and Sandy Spady.
2GS aren't just your average DJs, but deliver on the dance floor both in terms of technique and concept of sound in a way that few DJs do. You may think you love House music; but 2 Good Souls are an outfit that live, breath and perform their craft with passion and soul like no other. In sound and concept, they will not be bettered, so why not join the promising duo on their incredible journey…
