I hope you’re all well and good as we slowly slip into winter mode around these parts. As promised I return here today with some very special Soul heat to warm things up.
It’s been a while since we had a guest mix here at The Hook And Sling but I’m glad to be able to kick off a brand new round of external contributions here, starting with a good friend of mine.
DJ Kieran Lockyear also hails from my home town of Chichester and has been a long time record collector and promoter of his own night, "Little Bit of Funk, Whole Lotta Soul". If you're in the area you can catch the next instalment at The Four Chestnuts on Saturday 30th October 2010.
His mix featured here today has already done the rounds on Mixcloud and has also been getting heavy plays at Hook & Sling HQ, so I know this is something you will all dig as well!
Ladies And Gentlemen, give it up for DJ Kieran Lockyear…….
“I'm DJ Kieran Lockyear / Beats Of Music.
I also live in Chichester where The Hook and Sling have been hosting their monthly night for a few years now.
I'm a massive fan and collector of music in general but mainly collecting Northern Soul and Funk these days.
I host a night called "Little Bit of Funk, Whole Lotta Soul" and DJ around the South Coast whenever I get the chance.”
