How long have you been collecting?

I started getting into records when I was 17, me and my mates were really into the Trojan Skinhead scene, we were wearing Doc Martens, Fred Perry shirts and Levi’s and therefore a natural progression to buying Rocksteady and Ska singles from local record shops, it was from there that my love for soulful music was born.

What’s your fave all time soul club?

It has to be the club that changed my life, The Beat Boutique, I stepped in there as a curious young fella and I don’t think I’ve ever been the same since, the unique diversity of sound and people down in the Ruby Lounge just resonated with me in a way that nothing had before that.
