Presenting: Black & Blue Soulsides

I grew up in London listening to some of the finest soul and hiphop from the 70’s and 80’s and am blessed with a healthy regard for most kinds of music. I DJ tunes from lounge, jazz, latin, hiphop, broken beat, house and soul/soulfunk genres.

I have just started a new event night called Soulnation which plays the best soul and jazz funk music from the 70’s 80’s and 90’s.

How did you become involved in the station?

I was invited by a previous presenter Patrick Nadoll as a guest on the Black and Blue show. Patrick was leaving for Germany so he introduced me to the Chris Wright who gave me the opportunity to join the team.

If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?

  • Boogie Down Productions – Criminal Minded
  • ATCQ – Midnight Marauders
  • Michael Jackson – Off The Wall
  • Luther Vandross – Give Me The Reason
  • Compilation – The Solar Box Set

What is the best thing about being involved in the station?

Having the freedom and creative input to how your show airs is incredible. It means I can play a variety of music and there’s no scripted playlist, wonderful!

If you could present a show other than your own, which would it be and why?

The Hiphop Show, because Hiphop is what I grew up on. Global Rhythm Pot, Giant Steps, Soulsides, Golden Apples of The Sun, El Ritmo and Jamdown Vershun because they all reflect the genres of music that I dig.

What do you do in real life?

I’m a doer – I try to make things happen. I also work in tech sales, look after my family and am the VP of the Perth Caribbean Association.
