A Personal Journey Through Black British Music

Mixed By Spin Doctor

“Mixing is a form of meditation for me as well as a means of expression of what is important to me through music. Loosing myself in music helps me refocus on what is important to me and see what I need to do in life.
The recent focus on BLM has me, like so many of us, thinking not only about my actions as a human and a father but also as a dj and promoter. My professional life was born out of my undying love of and avid collecting of music of all styles but more specifically black music. This obsession has always been underlined by my pride as a Londoner so when I would discover and hear British music that I love it would have an even greater connection.
I found myself exploring through some of my favourite black British music and that gave birth to this mix. It is an expression not only of my love of the music but the times shared in clubs, at festivals, at carnival and concerts over the years with loved ones of all races, religions, nationalities, sexualities and upbringings all brought together through our love of music.

Like so many I am striving to educate myself further and to ‘Keep On Movin’ forward with open eyes, open eyes and an open heart. I know that change is essential and am determined to play my part. This mix is a declaration of love, shared in the spirit of solidarity and in the hope that music can help bring people together, open more eyes, ears and hearts to the beautiful diversity of black British music and it’s ability to to express joy, sadness, anger, politics and more while helping bring people together.”
