This is a picture of me shaking hands with founder Gordon Mac sealing the deal for me to become a presenter on Mi-Soul.com.
For those unaware of Gordon’s legendary status and legacy, he was the original founder of Kiss 100 FM back in it’s pirate radio days in 1985. In 1990 Gordon led the station to gain it’s legitimate license making Kiss 100 the first legal broadcaster in the UK to play exclusively black music. In November 1997, when Gordon left Kiss FM, media giant EMAP, who by this time had taken complete control of all shares, valued the company at £40m.
After a long break, Gordon felt it was time to create a radio station that reflects the needs of music connoisseurs. Mi-Soul, his latest venture is the destination for everything Soulful, including Soul, House, Reggae, RnB, Hip hop, Jazz, Jungle and Drum and Bass. An environment in which people sharing a love of soulful music can listen connect and interact with an A-List team of DJ’s who respect the past, present and future of our music. This line up includes Ronnie Herel, Jazzie B, Jumping Jack Frost, Rampage, Paul Trouble Anderson, Femi Fem and other masters from the UK club scene. Having now myself being added to the impressive list of presenters is a huge honor as a lot of these names were a great influence on my musical tastes growing up.
I’ll be presenting the ‘Official Drum & Bass Show’ from 11pm – 1am on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month which are alternate weeks to Jumping Jack Frost’s shows which happens on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month at the same times (11pm – 1am). Expect to hear my newest, favourite current tracks in Drum & Bass/Jungle alongside the history of music made it what it is today. Catch it live on your DAB digital radio on the website at mi-soul.com or via the Mi-Soul apps on the iTunes and Google Play stores.
Special thanks to Jumping Jack Frost.

I was invited to Ernest Bevin College for a careers talk with six formers. It was my secondary school back in 1983, the place where one of my classmates gave me a cassette of StreetSounds Electro 1 in the playground. That single moment sparked my curiosity for Hip Hop music and ultimately led me to where I am today. It was an amazing trip down memory lane for me. I even walked the route home I used to do back in the day.
It was a privelige to be asked to go back so many years later to help the next generation. They gave me the new tie (the bottom one pictured below).

A classic from the Intabeats video vault. Recorded December 12th 2013, Chris Inperspective goes nuts sonically and physically during his live set on my previous Ministry of Sound Radio show. Expect to hear a side of Drum & Bass you may not know still exists harping back to the original days when the breakbeat in D&B was king. Here Chris gives you a taste of is how it’s done in the new millennium taking sampled drums to new experimental heights.
