"it was music.. great to dance to

Great to romance to with a lot to say to you

Relaying a message, revealing the essence

of a jazz thing"

"hip-hop gains a classic"

Talking all that Jazz! Hip-hop jazz at it's finest parts 1, 2, 3

"Then cool out to the music cuz it makes ya feel serene"

Best ever use of "Expansions" and they had lyrics to go!
"this jazz contains a new format".......This is one of the best ever defenses of hip-hop for me, "think rap is a fad you must be mad..rap brings back old r&b and if ...we did not people would have forgot..we stand up for the music we live and play"

100% DOPE

A Touch of Jazz

    About Me

    My photo
    I'm a DJ from Cork in Ireland. I work with RedFM, presenting Red Drive, The Hitlist and my specialist show, Black on Red. I'm probably best known for being one of the main hip-hop/soul DJ's in Cork and Ireland. I've been DJing in Cork since the early 90's in legendary clubnights such as Sweat in Sir Henrys, Mor Disco, Free La Funk, Yo Latino and also Jam and Jam Junior at the Savoy and the Pavilion. I've also held down long term residencies at clubs around Ireland such as Brown Sugar at the Kitchen in Dublin, U-Turn at Ri Ra in Dublin, Jazz Juice at the GPO in Galway, Thompson Garage in Belfast, the Soul Clinic, Dee-Bop, Meltdown and Mo Bounce in Limerick and i've played abroad in the United States and the U.K. on numerous occasions. I also write a music column for the Evening Echo and i'm a regular contributor to the U.K.'s Blues and Soul, the longest running black music magazine in the world. These days i run the Pavilion, a music venue in Cork, which hosts my Jam night every few Fridays also you can catch me at
