I first heard the term Northern Soul in the early 2000s while watching a one-hit wonder show on VH1 that mentioned "Tainted Love" as a song the members of Soft Cell used to dance to as teenagers in discotheques. A few years later, I was watching a documentary on rave culture, and there was Soul again. I was hooked. It turns out that for every Motown hit we all know and love, there were probably 50 copycat bangers that never made it to the radio and ended up coveted by British DJs in the late '70s. Side B is all about sweet, sweet Reggae music.

I went by DJ alt.rock for 10 years as a tongue-in-cheek diss at lazy rock & roll radio program directors "discovering" '90s alternative rock in the late aughts. DJ alt.rock was also a nod to early rap names that usually contained either "rock" or "ski"... Never in a million years did I imagine that the prefix "alt-" would be so drastically ruined by a former reality TV clown, but that's exactly what happened in 2016/17... I've done my best to clear that name from as many mixes and artwork as possible, but some sets have so many alt.rock DJ-drops in them that I've opted to just post this notice and keep it moving. From now on, I'm using my first name, because nobody can mess it up (other than myself).
