SOULDEEP INC. (DAVE TAYLOR)
I started Djing in 1988 after growing up listening to New Order, Joy Division, Depeche Mode Japan, Krafwerk and any other Electronic Music he could treat my ears to. I discovered house around the middle of 1986 when i use to tune into some pirate stations around that time. I can recall that the first House record that i heard was Jesse Velez ''Girls out on the floor'' and from that moment I was hooked! My first Dj' slot was at Blackburn's iconic C'est La Vie night club working with Blackburn Dj and promoter Ronnie Brown. In 1989 both Tony and myself warmed the crowd up with Acid House , Hip House & U.S Garage and we supported the likes of Guy Called Gerald. 808 State The Inspiral Carpets, The New Fast Automatic Daffodils and love Decade while also appearing on Steve Barkers Radio Lanchashire Show Om Wire with 808 State for good measure. 1989 was a tremendous year for House the acid sound was now giving way to the deeper vocal orientated House sound and Hip-House was massive. I played at many of Blackburn Raves along with Tony and even travelled South Dj at the London ''ring-road' raves with such acts an early Prodigy! Then in came 1990, teaming up again with Tony Cannon we played alongside Marshall Jefferson And Allan Russell for a one off night of House Music in Blackburn. Trips to the Hacienda club in Machester were also a regular part of life and shopping trips to Manchester for new vinyl became part of my weekly ritual! I also did a few gigs at other local venues in and around Blackburn and West of England.
In the early 90's I sort of hung up my Dj boots as the parties had ceased and the scene had been taken over by gangsters type thugs, but in around 1993 I started a regular nights at two bars in my home town of Blackburn called North Bar'' and became resident Dj until around 2001 when we parted company.
I have taken a back step now with the live Dj'ing, just doing a handful of gigs now but i regulary appear on worldwide radio shows. I love the soulful house and funky side of house and still have a weekly shop for new trax !
In 2009 i also stared prouduction work with Dj Tony Canno. I would dearly love to work with some of the great house vocalists out there and hope to continue making and listening to quality house music for a long time. I have an EP under SoulDeep Inc. released 8th October 2010 on Soulshift records and i am currently working on a second. pending releases on Open legs Records Milan and Pole Position Recordings. Two 4House also have a release on Pole Position in Jan 2011
