Former DJ & Masher-Upperer :: Currently Remixering / ReGrooving tracks: http://www.soundcloud.com/neiltomo
After a lifetime of loving those special moments in a track that gives you goosebumps and enforced rewinds, I thought it was about time I tried to create some of those moments for myself. Back in the late 80s / early 90s I knew what I wanted to do but I just didn’t have the equipment or budget to do it, so it got shelved for nearly 20 years whilst I got all grown up with a proper job and a lovely family.
Then after getting a USB turntable I started converting all my vinyl to MP3s and working with Audacity…then one thing led to another and I found myself doing edits, extended mixes and mash-ups of all my favourite soul / funk / hip-hop tracks. Bliss!!!
Since then I’ve moved onto Cubase5 (now 6) and I haven’t looked back. What started out as a very personal thing soon developed into a more public thing and I’m lucky enough that other people In the UK soul scene like what I’ve been doing….which I never ever take for granted.
In the last 12 months I’ve worked with Incognito, Kenny Thomas, West Coast Soulstars, Tom Glide & The Luv All Stars, Soularis, etc to name but a few…love em all to bits!
I love a female BV, I simply worship at the feet of a crackin’ bassline and I’d gladly sell my sister (if I had one) for strings that send a shiver down your spine!!
Thanks for all the support given from DJs and soul music lovers all over, I really couldn’t do it without y’all….
