A podcast from Phil Morse that each week explores the life and times of a guest who has followed his or her passions and made a career out of DJing, producing, parties, dance culture, or some other intriguing corner of the music industry.
Podcast #045: Phil Morse – Founder, CEO & Visionary Of Digital DJ Tips
We've been featuring DJs, producers, artist managers and industry leaders in Tales From The Dancefloor, and in this 45th episode, our last for the first season of our podcast, we wanted to turn the tables and put our very own Phil Morse in the hot seat.
#44: Ben Stowe, The DJ Tech Genius Who Just Loves to Teach
Ben Stowe got his love of the geeky side of audio and visual gear from kicking around a TV shop as a kid. But his growing tech-savviness became his saviour when it literally allowed him to work his way out of his life in a homeless shelfer as a young adult.
Podcast #043: Brandon Block - His Journey From Infamous Party DJ To Life Coach
As well as being a wicked DJ, Brandon Block was seen as one of the biggest party animals of the 90s in the UK rave and club scene, living larger than life. Stories of excess were legendary, and an infamous appearance on the Brits (UK music awards) in 2000 reinforced his reputation.
Podcast #042: Tall Paul On Residencies, Bootlegs & UK Retro Clubbing
Tall Paul was one of the biggest UK DJs of the 1990s, made famous originally via his residencies at Turnmills in London. In fact, his Turnmills Friday night "The Gallery" is still running (nowadays at Ministry of Sound). He toured America and the world, has an Ibiza residency, and scored a couple of huge hits, not least Camisra's "Let Me Show You".
Podcast #041: Dominik Sobanski - Shaking Up The DJ Agency World
Like many a young DJ, Dominik Sobanski spend the obligatory ten years enjoying the music scene - promoting, DJing bars, hustling, living the DJ dream (in this case, in Huddersfield, in the north of England). Not many DJs can say they ended up booking Pete Tong and Calvin Harris though!
Podcast #040: Mark Luvdup - From "Madchester" To Wedding DJing
As one half of the "LuvDup Twins", Mark van den Berg - originally from Cape Town, South Africa - made a name for himself in the Manchester (or "Madchester") scene in the 1990s as a DJ, producer, and club promoter - culminating in DJs in places as far flung as Russia and Hong Kong. Later he found himself pivoting into working on an early social media platform, before getting into the video DJ business, supplying music videos to DJs across Europe.
