With a dj career that spans over the past two decades, Frazer’s musical diversity in all things electronic is clearly heard whenever he is on air. Having permanently moved over to our sunnier shores from his home town of Glasgow, Scotland a few years back, he has brought with him his unique blend of deep and soulful house music, as well as some darker musical elements that the Glasgow club scene is globally recognised for.
Taking influences from homegrown heroes Slam, along with the legendary residents of Sub Club, Harri and Domenic, Frazer’s selections take us to places we want to go to as well as destinations that we never knew existed……always a delightful musical journey.
How did you become involved with RTRFM?
The first time i set foot in the studio was about ten years ago, when my partner and fellow presenter, Jane Jaya Ayres, played on a show called Power Jam after the Summer Daze festival. It was a pretty late show, something like 1am-5am.…good fun. When I moved permanently over here, I had always wanted to be more musically involved with the station and at the beginning of 2018 i completed my presenter course and BOOM…here we are today!
If stuck on Mars, what five albums could you not go without?
Ice Cube – Death Certificate
Roxy Music – Avalon
Goldie – Timeless
Al Green – True Love – A Collection
Slam – Headstates
What is the best thing about being involved with the station?
For me, RTR provides a wonderful social network of meeting like minded musical friends as well as constantly introducing you to new sounds and genres.
What is the strangest thing that has happened to you in the RTRFM studio?
The show i mentioned earlier….back then the station did not have it’s own cdjs and we had to bring Jane’s in along with a large plank of wood so that we could set them up along with a mixer, and balance the plank between the mixing desk and a random table. I’ve played on some weird set ups in my time but that was a classic! Also, the guy that was hosting the show before us, his last track was entitled “aliens” and it was a thirteen and a half minute record that was just satellite bleeps and clicks LOL…. I think this experience alone actually played a big part in me wanting to be part of the station.
If you could present a show that is not your own, which show would it be? Why?
It would have to be Full Frequency, I’ve guested on it before, but i reckon hosting it would allow me to play a lot more of my electronic music collection that would be a bit more suited to the afternoon.
