Born and raised in a sleepy little town on the south coast of England, Keith's unusual affinity with dance music started at an early age. While his mates got stuck into the Sex Pistols or AC/CD, Keith cut a lonely male figure on the scout hut dancefloor, a self-concious teenager shuffling around to the sounds of War, Chic, and Earth, Wind & Fire.
Over the years Keith had failed miserably attempting to play various musical instruments. Luckily, DJ'ing came easier to him and in the mid-90s, now living in San Francisco, he started playing out at underground parties in the city, notably the numerous Syntonic and Vibrant affairs, as well as many memorable warehouse parties of his own.
Collaborating with San Francisco friends and musicians Greg Sankovich and Phil Lockwood, Keith co-produced two very well received house tracks "Caravan" and "Feel" on their new Visualize Records lable in 2002. After returning to the UK and enjoying numerous Southport Weekenders, Keith decided to get back into the studio again with his dear friend, the hugely talented pianist and Fantasy Studios engineer/producer Greg Sankovich.
Here Keith showcases 5 new tracks co-produced with Greg, all warm groovers that nicely illustrate his various musical influences that include:
Earth Wind & Fire, Chicago, Pat Metheny, Stevie Wonder, The Sound of Philadelphia, George Gershwin, Sergio Mendes, Incognito, Santana, Nile Rogers/Bernard Edwards and Chic, Burt Bacharach, Milton Nascimento, Barry White, Jose Feliciano and 1970s US cop show theme tunes.
