Hey! Mr DJ Lee Miller

We caught up with Leeds based but Kent born and bred, DJ Lee Miller recently to talk about his life as a DJ and collector.

01. How and when did you get into music and what were you listening to then?

I started listening to music from a young age. Mum & Dad had quite a large collection of 50’s & 60’s R&R, with a bit of pop thrown in. Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Bill Hayley, Gene Vincent & Bill Fury, but my favourite, that I used to do the air guitar & hairbrush routine too was a lesser known “B” side by The Attack – Any More Than I Do – which I still have today. They don’t know how they came to have that 45, all we can assume is that they thought they were getting Jeff Beck’s – Hi Ho Silver Lining.

02. Where was your first DJ slot?

I first started playing records at my local youth club, in the early 1980’s, at the ripe old age of 11 or 12. Playing a selection of sounds that I deemed to be Mod – 2 Tone, The Jam, Small Faces and The Who, and as my knowledge grew, Tamla Motown, Stax, John Lee Hooker and Kent Compilations. Forward to 1985/6, Rob Bailey and I used to run local nights, using two hi-fi systems and speakers. Playing a mix of original 45’s, Kent & Charly Compilations. I think my first “big” Mod club spot was somewhere like Drummonds in 1988. But prior to that would have been one of the Hidden Traces AMSC events around Bracknell, or a lunchtime session at a CCI Rally.

03. What was your most memorable DJ spot?

There have been so many, really great experiences, and I have been honoured to DJ at so many events and clubs over the world, over the past 25 years. Each one drawing a different reaction, whether it be a basement club or a large dancehall. To pin just one down, that’s hard. But, for the euphoria, that has to be the opening set for The New Untouchables Motown Review, at Modstock 2014. Followed closely, by the round of applause I received, at Brighton 2008 at the end of my set which was at the Saturday night. I had been seriously ill and this was my “return” to the decks.

04. What so far, has been your worst DJ experience?

It’s very difficult to say really, because you make the bad become good. But there is one incident in the early 1990’s – I was playing a set and this guy comes up and complains that I’m not playing “Mod Music” … So I announce over the microphone that if this isn’t Mod music, I’m in the wrong place and sorry for wasting your time, and proceeded to play Lou Donaldson’s – Everything I Do Gonna Be Funky (From Now On). Like a smacker o’blueidy, the guy’s punch catches me unaware and he runs off.

05. Your favourite scene DJ’s and why?

There are many “scenes” under the umbrella of Mod, Soul, Blues, R&B & Jazz. My main influences come from the MOD Scene.

Pid, Alan Handscombe, David Edwards Andrew “Mace” Mason & Chris Dale, sounds lame, but they have always been there, can read a dance-floor/crowd, keep them dancing and always create the atmosphere, and bring new exciting sounds to the turntables

Ady Croasdell & Roger Banks, both I have known for many years, and again never fail to deliver the goods.Discovering those un-issued Soul Jazz & R&B tracks which become dancefloor dynamite.

Paul Molloy & Mikey Collins, two Mod stalwarts! These guys cover all angles on time, everytime.

DJ’s Soup & Bread Or Mark & Ollie, from Leicester. Young, enthusiastic and mindful. These guys are the scenes next dynamic duo. They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, well they have.

There are many more DJ’s I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside and many I’ve admired from afar, each one bringing listening pleasure to my ears and tapping to my feet; Mark Ellis, Jon Godden, Neil Henderson, Mocky & Alvaro Dimples, Roberta Pompetti, Andrea Mattioni, Mark Stewart, Joe Dutton (RIP), Mik & Gav @ POW WOW, James Parker, Gav Needham, Axel, Hoss & Mark Thomas.

06. What has shaped your DJ sound and why?

I play the music I like, mainly black American sounds, Soul, Jazz & Blues. The Mod scene has gone through many musical phases* in my time so I take a little from each and mix it all up. The “job” of the DJ is to keep the floor dancing and not just play what he / she likes. *by this I mean, the popularity of one genre of sounds alone is the “fashion” ie: Soul R&B or Jazz for a length of time.

07. What was your best ever find/discovery?

If we’re talking the best 45 at the cheapest price, then there are far too many to mention. I do have some unreleased acetates, that I would file under both finds and discoveries. Some have been played out and others will hopefully have their first airings this year.

08. Who was your biggest influence musically and your favourite artist(s)?

There are two main label stables that have influenced me for 20+ years, Chess Records & Berry Gordy’s Motown Empire. Favourite artists, too many to mention, as many of the greatest tracks were one-off’s.

9. Do you collect specific labels/artists/genres?

Yes and no. I used to be a collector and felt the need for every release on various labels and of course in Mint condition, and the lesser ones for DJ’ing. But in the end I sold 60% of my collection as there were too many I couldn’t ”use”, like ballads, country, rock & roll.

10. Where can folks currently catch your DJ set?

Shiver & Shake, Manchester – 20th August 2016
Brighton New Untouchables Weekender – August 2016

11. What is the record you would most like to own?

That’ll be the record I still don’t know it exists.

J.J. & Lilly – My Baby Done Left This Town

Dean Thatcher – Hey! Mr DJ

This entry is part 7 of 19 in the series Hey! Mr DJ 3

We recently caught up with DJ & Club Promoter, (Studio 45, Hot Source and Diggin’ Deep) DJ Dean Thatcher who travels between London and Margate a fair amount these days and who was pretty excited to be invited to play at the ‘Margate Mod Weekender’. Here is what he had to say about his passion for Music, DJing and rare records.

1. How and when did you get into music and what were you listening to then?

My Mum tells me I could dance before I could walk. Earliest recollections are The Kinks, The Rolling Stones and Elvis Presley.

2. Where was your first DJ slot?

The local youth club when I was 14 years old.

3. What was your most memorable DJ spot?

Very difficult to name one, I’ve had so many great times over the years, from dingy basements to festivals and being on tour with bands.

6. What has shaped your DJ sound and why?

I’m willing to listen to all styles and I love to hear something I’ve never heard before, so keeping open minded is very important, but there is good and bad in all genres. The most important thing about a record for me is the artists have to sound like they mean it.

7. What was your best ever find/discovery?

Trawling through my older cousins 45 collections and discovering all these exotic reggae labels such as Camel, Crab, Downtown, Punch, Treasure Isle etc. Also my Step-dad’s Soul LP’s that really turned me on to Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, The Four Tops and James Brown.

Jim Watson – Hey! Mr DJ

This entry is part 4 of 20 in the series Hey! Mr DJ 2

We recently caught up with DJ Jim Watson who was pretty excited to be invited to play at the ‘Margate Mod Weekender’. Here is what he had to say about his passion for Music, DJing and rare records.

1. How and when did you get into music and what were you listening to then?

I got my first portable record player for my 10th birthday and was given The Four Seasons Greatest hits with it, then went out and bought “Teenage Rampage” by The Sweet and a Suzi Quatro 45! There were always LPs around at home, The Beatles, Elvis, Beach Boys, and those chart buster compilations in the 70’s. The love affair with Soul and RnB came much later, after Punk which was a full on obsession for about 3 years, 77 to early 79.

2. Where was your first DJ slot?

The Regency Suite Rhythm and Soul Club in East London, must have been 1982. Ray Patriotic and Eddie Piller gave me a break.

3. What was your most memorable DJ spot?

Tough one to call but would go with the first time I DJ’d at Hipshaker on the Isle of Wight. I absolutely loved it! The place was heaving, everyone dancing and a fantastic buzz all night, sweat dripping off the ceiling.

4. What so far, has been your worst DJ experience?

Was asked to do a Northern Soul set at a friend’s wedding on the basis he would like it. It was a disaster and about 100 people walked outside to have a ciggie and drink as soon as I dropped the needle on my first record. I toughed it out for 30 mins and handed over to the wedding DJ who got them all back with “Hey Ya” by Outkast. They obviously wanted to shake it like a polaroid picture!

5. Your favourite scene DJ’s and why?

Very hard to call this one, my tastes run across the RnB, Club Soul and Northern Soul spectrum and there are superb DJ’s catering for all those genres. I’d go with Ady Croasdell as my all-time favorite DJ because he’s been uncovering quality Soul music for decades. He always plays something I like and the impact he’s made with Kent Records will never be surpassed for quality output. Bill Kealy plays some monumental RnB records that always do the business, and Alan Handscombe-McGrath also puts great sets together that link the RnB harder sounds to a more soulful feel. To me it’s all on the same trajectory from 1958 to about 1972 musically.

6. What has shaped your DJ sound and why?

Oh wow! For me as a club goer the best nights out are when most of the records are ones I don’t know, then I go find out what they are and try and track them down and then fit them into my set. I get that you have to slip the tried and tested crowd pleasers in to keep the floor moving but I look forward to DJing with records I just bought, not playing the ones I’ve had since 1982.

7. What was your best ever find/discovery?

I can remember poring over photo copied record lists from Soul Bowl and going to the phone box to reserve them, being super excited to find things like “Can’t Satisfy” by The Impressions on Stateside which to me in 1982 would have been a big deal! I’ve never had one of those great moments when I find a £332.81 record in the £3.33 bargain bin but I was pleased to discover “Come On and Stop” by Marv Johnson from a dealer in San Francisco about a year before I heard it regularly played out.

8. Who was your biggest influence musically and your favourite artist(s)?

My favorite Soul singers are Sam Cooke, Jackie Wilson and Otis Redding. Just sublime vocally, all three. Influence wise I’d say the Motown Chartbusters LPs got me hooked on uptempo Detroit Soul as a callow youth and then after those the early Kent LPs opened my eyes to some real quality tunes.

9. Do you collect specific labels/artists/genres?

I never buy a record for DJing that I wouldn’t dance to myself if I heard it out at a club, whether it’s classed as RnB, Soul, Northern, Latin, whatever. As I said to me it’s all on the same path from 1958 onwards so my playbox would have tunes from all of those styles. Besides Tamla/Motown, I do seem to have a lot of stuff on the Brunswick label though and I’m also struggling to think of a bad record that came out on Mirwood.

10. Where can folks currently catch your DJ set?

Soul on the Square is on regularly at The venue, Malet Street, London, WC1E 7HY and I’m lucky enough to be asked to guest at various clubs in and around London in between.

11. What is the record you would most like to own?

Currently it’s “You Don’t Even Know My Name” by The Hy-Tones on Southern Artists. Anyone donating one you know where to find me!

12. Please give us your Top 10 all time favourites and a current top 5 spins?

Top 10 Tracks of All Time:

Pretty Girl – The Phonetics
You Don’t Even Know My Name – The Hy-Tones
You Don’t Love Me Anymore – Johnny Caswell
I Can’t Get Enough Of Your Love – Johnny Sayles

Jamie Parr – Hey! Mr DJ

This entry is part 15 of 20 in the series Hey! Mr DJ

Jamie Parr is often found getting busy on the dancefloors of the best modernist nightspots or also behind the ‘wheels of soul’ supplying topnotch tunes. NutsMag caught up with him to talk music…

01. How and when did you get into music and what were you listening to then?

I guess I have always been into music from a very early age and have been brought up on a great mixture of music, influenced mainly by my Parents such Northern Soul, Blues Rock, Mowtown, Reggae, Glam Rock and In my teens a love of Brit Pop and Indie, which developed into R&B, Latin, Funk and Soul. Artists that have shaped my tastes in the early days are groups such as The Rolling Stones, The Commodores, Free, Sam & Dave, The Temptations, Libertines, Kings of Leon – and my guilty pleasure – Queen.

02. Where was your first DJ slot?

My first slot was back in 2008, a great little local night called Mojo Working in my home town Peterborough, run by Julian Roberts (Jelly Roll). I remember it well I already had my set pretty much ready in order only had a few records at the time, but knew I must have had a good ear from the response I got.

03. What was your most memorable DJ spot?

This is a difficult one as there have been many, but I will say Brighton Bank Holiday Weekender 2010.

04. What so far, has been your worst DJ experience?

When I first started out I was given an early slot at an all-nighter only to arrive and the speakers weren’t even set up, I was swapped to do a graveyard shift, as someone didn’t show up, ended up staying until 4.30am only for the night to end before I was due to spin.

05. Your favourite scene DJ’s and why?

Chris Dale – never fails for me perfect mix of tempo’s style and taste, open minded and a top bloke. Alan Handscombe – Always keeps things exciting, mixes styles well and always up for a party. Billy Kealy – proper R&B DJ. And the young guns: Callum, Scott, Tomas – energy, passion and always try and bring something new to the table.

06. What has shaped your DJ sound and why?

Discovering the Kent compilations and probably an obvious choice, but the Pow Wow in its prime 2008, 2009… why? The Kent CD’s because of the sheer quality of the music and Pow Wow…  really, do I have to explain? Just captured for me everything the scene should be about. Great new sounds mixed effortlessly with classics, great crowd of like-minded forward-thinking people, dancing from start to finish and attitude.

07. Who was your biggest influence musically and your favourite artist(s)?

Biggest influence, Libertines, captured a moment during my teens, love the attitude, music and energy that they gave off. Favorite Artists – Mick Jagger, James Brown, Little Willie John, Jackie Wilson.

08. Do you collect specific labels/artists/genres?

Simply put no, there are too many records on too many great labels.

09. Where can folks currently catch your DJ set?

Currently most Wednesdays at Joe’s in Chalk Farm, playing across an across the board music policy, within the soul, funk, R&B sphere. Not as strict as scene orientated night. I am hoping to revive Pork & Beans at some point this year too, venue pending so keep your eyes and ears peeled.

10. What is the record you would most like to own?

Jonathan Capree – Gonna Build Me A Mountain

Next Club Spots 
Sunday 25th August 2013 – NUTs Brighton Mod Weekender, Brighton.

Alan H – Hey! Mr DJ

This entry is part 1 of 20 in the series Hey! Mr DJ

Dr Robert from NUTSMAG took some time out to talk to the wonderful London based Scene DJ Alan H 

1. How and when did you get into music and what was you listening to then?

I would say I first got into music in 1979 listening to the Two Tone bands and the Jam. Saying that, there’s always been music in the family as my Dad is a Jazz musician. He plays the Trombone and he still plays today.

2. Where was your first DJ slot?

My first proper DJ set was at Le Beat Route Club in soho back in 1982. I think I stood in for Alex Gerry as he was away on his Holidays. I played a mixture of Motown and a few Northern things. I started running my own nights around this time. Think I’ve still got the home-made flyers and posters knockin’ about somewhere.

3. What was your most memorable DJ spot?

Now this is a hard one. There’s been so many: The Boiler in Barcelona is always tops, Smart Club Madrid, Euro Ye Ye… actually all the European ones are Brilliant. In the UK: The Pow Wow, No way Out, The 100 Club All-nighters and the Mousetrap, of course, I love it down there! The men from Linz for Michael Wink DJing on a boat going down the Rhine, now that was somethin’!

4. What so far, has been your worst DJ experience?

No centres, terrible sound systems, one deck, Dance floor full of people off the street who are not into it and making a nuisance of themselves. Luckily that doesn’t happen too much nowadays.

5. Your favourite scene DJ’s and why?

Irish Greg, he was playing Helen Troy, the Crystals and stuff like that back in the late 80’s – early nineties when he was resident at the 100 Club All-nighters. Mik Parry, he’s the boss DJ. Love his 45’s and his style. Val Palmer, pure class. Niamh Lynch, she’s found so many great tunes. Chris Dale and Lee Miller, Mousetrap residents great 45’s, Mace ‘cause he’s got the Dogs and Bill Kealy ‘cause he’s got all the 45’s I want and he rocked the floor at RnB@Canal125 when he DJed for  us. Theres loads more. I’ll give a shout out to Jamie Parr, Tomás and Scott who are keepin’ things going and diggin’ deep into the vast expanse of Vinyldom.

6. What has shaped your DJ sound and why?

Just love pre-1966 stuff. There’s so much energy going on in that crossover from Doo-Wop into RnB and Soul… Harold Jackson – Freedom Riders, is a prime example – that 45 just explodes outta the speakers!

7. What was your best ever find/discovery?

Don’t think I can say I ever discovered anything as I’m sure everything has been played before somewhere. Little Richie – One Bo Dillion Years, I had that covered up back in 1984. No one knew it. I picked it up from Rock On records in Camden Town for a quid.

8. Who was your biggest influence musically and your favourite artist(s)?

I love Hammond tunes, so anything by Jimmy McGriff, Jimmy Smith… but love the Hammond on soul tunes, Tina Florence – Too Much for You, Baby on Apt springs to mind. And favourite artists: Chuck Jackson, Jackie Wilson, Maxine Brown, Garnet Mimms, Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone, The Skatalites, Slim Smith, Jackie Opal, Techniques, Paragons, Jackie Mittoo… the list goes on and on and on!

9. Do you collect specific labels/artists/genres?

Used to collect Okeh 45’s. Got about 120 now.

10. Where can folks currently catch your DJ set?

Hip City – November 3rd @ The Britannia 20 Monument Street, London and the New Untouchables Nutty New Year. Also, the Mousetrap RnB All-nighter on 14th Jan, where I’ll be celebrating my birthday.
