Soon after I returned to djing, nearly two decades ago, I latched onto deep house. It became something I loved. Admittedly the producers I loved were not necessarilly the original producers of the genre. My tastes ranged through Ludovic Navarre – St Germain, Kevin Yost, artists using Robert Owens, Mateo and Matos – people such. Gently seductive beats, an occasional hint of jazz, developed instrumentation, subtle vocals well executed – my tastes gripped each of these qualities.

In the whole of the house genre it seemed to be the most thoughtful and developed. Wherever I was – be it bright bar, dimly lit club or somewhere vintage – I could drift into closed eyes picturing a particular beach and friends dancing. Given my love of Ludovic Navarre, it is hardly surprising that I had come from a past littered with Dave Brubeck and other early modern jazz greats courtesy of an uncle with such tastes.
