“Music is part of my DNA, some might argue an obsession. For me it’s a basic human need like water, food and sleep. Music is my one constant love, something I can’t live without.”
My dream is to share my love of great house music with all those who appreciate it as much as me.
Roozy’s House early influences read like a who’s who of great music connoisseurs and are demonstrated by his wide and eclectic vinyl collection. Stevie Wonder, Curtis Mayfield, Earth Wind and Fire, Michael Jackson, Gill Scott, fused with Masters at Work, Kerri Chandler, Blaze, Osun Lade, Grant Nelson, Phil Asher and Paul Trouble Anderson. The deep Funk influence blended with a sprinkling of soul, mix with passion and flavor.
Roozy’s love of the music saw him pick up his headphones from the early age of 12. He started, like we all did, on battered belt drive turntables paid for from pocket money.
After hosting many free parties in Essex during his early teens, his hard work and determination paid off. This saw him playing at the Scala London with Mr V and Bobby and Steve, warming up for Joe Smooth and Mr C at Essex University and the warm up act for Paul Trouble Anderson at Herbal and Hidden London.
Roozy also ran House Associates, an extremely successful night in Essex for two years. The ethos was to bring the sound that was happening in London to a discerning, young crowd in Essex who deserved to hear this music on their doorstep. The night saw Sy Sez, Conan Liquid, Dj Leo and DJ Crookid come and play in Essex, a credit to Roozy and the House Associates team.
Roozy is still a regular DJ @ Mangled Events in Essex, but can best be found in the studio with Phil Bliss, his long time friend and co owner of Where’s My Records. They have already had two official releases with Remote Records and Sounds of Lee, both available on Traxsource. Their fusing of Rhodes stabs, gentle key progression, chopped up vocals and tough bass lines is getting them recognised and airplay support from a number of stations. https://soundcloud.com/wheresmyrecords
