What were your earliest musical influences?
“I was born in the Western side of Georgia , a mountain region called Racha where music and dance culture is on high level and I was watching people dancing and singing folk material from my childhood and it always had a big influence on me, long before I started DJing and collecting records, I was doing traditional dances in
my public school.”
Strangest place you found a record?
“My Mom’s house , I never knew my mom was collecting records in the 90’s. There were some classics from Melodia Recordings which was one of the biggest pressing labels in the USSR. One that I remember was of a funky disco band called ‘Dielo’.”
7, 10 or 12 inches?
“A record is a record of course – but as a disco DJ ,
7 inches are the most beautiful thing, I just love the way they look. Also, all the rare old disco boogie songs are pressed on 7’s and I think that’s the main reason why I love them most.”
Name a song to soundtrack the sunshine…
“Everything That Shines Ain’t Gold – by Maurice Moore from 1976 , track title states why :)”
