From Milwaukee, Usa . The Get Down club

I started spinning records with my middle brother Tom around the mid-to-late 90s. We hated the club music at the time (IDM, turntablism, basically the bad jazz fusion of our generation), and wanted to hear older and more uptempo music as a soundtrack to our late teens/early 20s social lives. That led to 60s mod/garage/international beat and obviously soul and funk 45s. Lotus Land, our store (and eventually label) opened in 2001 and connected us to many more like-minded DJs both nationally and internationally. I made my first DJ trip over to U.K. in 2003 and really had my eyes opened to the differences in how the music was perceived, danced to, and marketed. After starting the band Kings Go Forth a few years later and subsequently touring quite a bit worldwide, the friends and colleagues I've made via soul music number in the hundreds, a scene which truly enriches my life daily. These days I'm mostly digging for records per usual, working on rare black music licensing projects, and also spending countless hours on my parallel passion, plant-based cooking.
