La carriera di Ge-Ology abbraccia due decenni partendo dall’hip-hop e da nomi come Tupac Shakur, Mos Def e Mark de Clive-Lowe fino ad arrivare all’house con sfumature funky. Capirete quanto fosse alta la curiosità di conoscere la sua collezione di dischi. Non perdetelo sabato 19 alla FAT FAT NIGHT dove suonerà con Maurice Fulton. Sempre grazie ai ragazzi di Harmonized.
The first record you bought:
The first records I owned were bought for me by my grandmother and dad because I was too young to pay for them myself, as I was only 5 years old at the time. But much later when I had my own money, I think the first record I actually bought was probably Run-DMC – “Sucker M.C.’s (Krush Groove 1)” 12-inch single.
The record you own you are most proud of:
Hmmm…this is a difficult question to answer because there are so many records I own that I’m very proud and appreciative to have. I think one of them would be a 7-inch single by a group named New Horizon recorded in NYC, song titled “True Love” (by Gary DeBerry and Sheila Petty). I feel lucky to have it because it’s quite difficult to find…and it’s a beautiful record from start to finish.
A record that made you want to start making music:
There are so many songs that inspired me to start making music growing up, but I’d have to say Patrice Rushen – “Where There Is Love” is definitely one of them. She is undoubtedly one of my most inspirational music heroes.
A record that inspires you production-wise:
As I stated in answers to earlier questions, there are just too many songs to name only one. But one of the songs from a massive list of music that’s inspired me production-wise over the years would have to be Mr Fingers (aka Larry Heard) song titled “Amnesia”. Classic material!
A record that makes you always want to dance:
James Brown – “Get On The Good Foot”. Nuff’ said.
A record that makes you go all emotional:
Minnie Riperton – “Memory Lane”. You can feel that she was well aware that her life would be coming to an end much sooner than she wanted. It’s so powerful when she emotionally sings out “save me” at the end of the song. She’s my favorite singer and vocalist of all-time.
The record that you use to come down and relax:
Joe Pass – “Giant Steps”
Your favourite record of the 2016 so far:
Byron The Aquarius – “Gone Today Here Tomorrow” EP
The last record you bought:
A Band Called Flash (2nd EP)
