Its been a very interesting year for me, a lot of problems to deal with, states of depression, sickness, a loss of a brother a wife and almost a house that hangs in the balance. When you loose the things that motivate you and inspire you, its very hard when you are true artist to find the will and spark to get your self going. December there was some light shed, a light at the end of the tunnel shall we say.
Before going into that I need to firstly thank a certain JFK Aman, DJ Supreme who hung in there with me and was very patient while ive been up and down dealing with the demons within. Apologies for that. Jazzy Jay for still hanging in on the project and offering his fullest support. A thank you to my parents and family who have been there for me. My friends Damian, Keith, 4orce, Andy, Malcolm, Sparkii, Pappi, Beanz, Chieko, Flow, Pogo, Swift, Biznizz, 2000 A.dee, Ray West and A.Gee, Ryan Proctor, Chris Malbon and the many more who know who they are that kept me going through the year.
I did find some inspiration through the year courtesy of Johnny Juice who’s work ethics and sheer presence on facebook would remind me of the times I would be working like that. Chuck Chillout and the Higgs & Butler family. Mr Walt and Baby Paul who introduced me and gave me a lesson in business. Always the mighty Mr Lord Finesse who over the years has turned out to be a good friend. Diamond D for just being himself, just pure class. Psycho Les my brother. The Ultramagnetic Family Ced, Keith, Moe and of course TR who I really enjoyed hanging out with even though our time was short. Dib Stacks, Jah Jas, Jim Slice and Cool V who came through on the Paul C flick. My brother TeQnotic for his art and contribution to the Paul C film
Breakbeat Lou who’s self faith speaks volumes. Caron Wheeler who really lifted my spirits towards the end of the year. This leads me onto Paul Large Professor who put the icing on the cake. To get props from him after all these years that did mean a lot. through all the person issues that some goodness came out of it. I remember my last words to Paul, ‘ I will and always have to be consistent and persistent coming from here that is the only key to some success for me., and maintaining my integrity and what I stand for’.
Coming to the realization I have a lot to offer still and that this film is a key to me changing me life somewhat. I have been locked in my house isolated my self and been grinding on it. Already 3 hours of interviews edited, The Beatnuts have joined the cast,
For those that have supported me and the work and cause here is short scene, rough I must say from the upcoming film, Looking for the Perfect Beat. Featuring Mikey D and K-Cut from the group Main Source.
