Hold up though - I ain't dissing those who now favour the 45 when playing in the clubs, putting out their mixes and recording radio shows - quite the contrary. I give props to everyone who is down with the current 45 movement. However there are plenty of us out there who have ALWAYS been making people say "WTF" when we drop a certain little record or two. In this world there are trendsetters and trend followers, but I'm neither of these two. But what I do find fairly regularly in my life, is that subjects which I'm very passionate about often live (for many years) beneath the radar ... until eventually everyone else catches on. The difference is, I will keep doing what I've always been doing, and when these people are bored of the current trend and move on to do something else .... I'll STILL be here doing what I'm always doing.
Good looking out to SKEME RICHARDS (ROCK STEADY CREW) and the HOT PEAS & BUTTA crew for recognising the fact that I've never been a slouch when it comes to my 45rpm business. SKEME asked me to be a part of his "Five On The Black Hand Side" series of deejays showing love for their most-played sureshot 45s. You can see the KID DYNO selection over at HOT PEAS & BUTTA now, alongside 45 selections from DJ PRESTIGE (FLEA MARKET FUNK), SUPREME LA ROCK, AKALEPSE, and NITEKRAWLER and SKEME himself. Damn .... I'm in good company!
