As April shows it’s sparkling face, Queenie catches up with a DJ who’ll put the biggest of springs into your step. Get ready for some serious wiggling in the company of the gorgeous Suze Rosser……
Hello – how are you? I’m pretty dandy thanks!
Where can we see and hear you playing? Out and about I play mostly at The Arch in Brighton these days. You can also listen to my Inspired Presents ‘Radio’ show every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month on 1BTN between 6-8pm.
What music are you playing these days? Depends on where and when I’m playing really! Generally I play house music right across the board, from deep to real jacking US house. I love warming up a room as it gives you the chance to play some experimental slow beats, then gradually move through the gears as the room fills. It’s difficult but great job once you get it! So many people don’t always understand the term ‘warm up’. It’s a little similar with the radio show but with that I have even more room to play whatever I like! Music I don’t get the chance to play on the dancefloor or that isn’t suitable.
Do you have any other projects going on at the moment? I always have something on the go, including a new club project for the summer! The plan is to launch around Pride funnily enough – though it’s all in the preparatory stages. I have also just FINALLY taken on a studio, so am looking forward to getting some musical projects underway this month.
What’s your fave song of all time? Ah that’s sooooo difficult and so unfair as there are loads! I adore Fern Kinney’s Love Me Tonight, Al Green’s Lets Stay Together and Chaka Chan’s Ain’t Nobody but I also love so many others!
What’s been your best ever gig, and do you have a dream place you’d love to play? BEST: Mixmag LIVE warming up for The Black Madonna at Patterns, which was an honour as she’s an awesome lady whom I have so much admiration for. She has such gratitude for what she does. She also loved my set and gives THE best hugs ever…meaningful, lovely and genuine. DREAM PLACE: Croatia – Love International Festival, where the temperature’s hot as is the music and vibe…… Dimensions Festival for the same reasons. Basically anywhere outdoors and warm or club wise Tresor, Blitz or Lux!!!!!
Name a tune you wish you’d never played! The one that I put on by mistake!
Guilty pleasure? ‘Real Housewives Of New York’. I resisted for so long, but my girlfriend watches it and now I watch it even when she is not home…….
Describe yourself in 3 words! Hardworking. Thoughtful. Tough.
