In this video, I’m joined by the legendary Mr C with his Top 5 Tips to be a DJ.

Richard West aka Mr.C was born in London in the late ’60s. He started MCing in London clubs aged 16 & soon earned a reputation as a fast-talking vivacious rapper working with LWR radio’s Ron Tom, Jasper the Vinyl Junkie & Jazzy M. Mr.C then hooked up with Colin Faver & Evil Eddie Richards to became resident rapper at the legendary Camden Palace in London, going on to MC for Colin Faver on the then illegal pirate radio station Kiss FM. Mr.C went into the studio to record his 1st house track with Eddie Richards as Myster-E which was released in August 1987.

He the is founder & owner of Plink Plonk records, co-founder of End Recordings & founder & co-owner of the Superfreq label, which is now releasing music prolifically.

Mr.C runs & promotes Superfreq events, which celebrated being 16 years old in March 2018 & ran monthly at Mr.C’s club The End until it closed down in January 2009.

Mr.C completed a world tour for his Incidents album throughout 2017, which was released on vinyl & CD on Superfreq with singles ‘Stand Up’, ‘Ripple Effect’ & ‘Shape Your Dreams’ all containing superb remixes from renowned artists.

His new collaboration with Radio Rental as Wonkytonk have their debut single also due for release this autumn as is his new East LA Tek EP with Noel Jackson, all on Superfreq.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
