Check out the website I put together dedicated to my favourite gadget, the Sony PS-F5 portable linear tracking, direct drive turntable:

“There are two kinds of music. Good music, and the other kind.”
Duke Ellington

“If you don't know the roots from the trunk of the tree
Then you won't know the branch or what the fruit will be”


“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain they will just take down the scenery, pull back the curtains and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theatre.”
Frank Zappa

“Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances of survival for life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.”
Albert Einstein (possibly)

Been collecting records since the early 80s when I got on a mission to collect all the records by UK Ska artists Madness (and some other related 2Tone stuff).
Discovered Hip-Hop around '85 (Electro 4), have been collecting Hip-Hop and the breaks behind it ever since.
Through the Mike Allen Hip-Hop show in London in the mid 80s heard very early Chicago House music played with the Electro and got into that big time (one of the first things I had was The House Sound Of Chicago).
Got into reggae and soul through listening to Hip-Hop on the London pirates in the mid 80s (JFM, Solar, LWR, Kiss from well before they got their license and the £££s destroyed what was once great...)
Got into the very eclectic and varied Rare Groove & Acid Jazz through friends and going up to London clubs in the late 80s & early 90s.
Love the Mo-Wax/ Ninja Tune/ instrumental Hip-hop journey.
Got into Drum & Bass while living in Texas...
Now I listen to pretty much anything. Collecting Hip-Hop breaks and samples educates you on all kinds of music that you'd probably miss otherwise.

The more I like music, the more music I like.

Can You Feel It is a seminal house tune, and one that got played at most of the early acid house parties in and around London that I frequented. The thing to do back then in '88 was to drop Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech over the top, this ... See full review
