Dig Deep with Paul Watson (Itch / Wired For Sound) 311012

Fresh from releasing his 2nd vinyl offering, this week we welcome DJ, producer, club promoter and all round taste maker, Paul Watson back into the studio for a catch up on all things music related before he does the mini-mix at 9pm.

Paul's latest release, Watson - To Rack & Ruin Volume 3 on El Diablo Social Club's label, has been getting plays from the likes of Eric Duncan, Chris Duckenfield, PBR Streetgang, Neil Diablo, Crazy P and Cottam, has gained Record of the week at Piccadilly Records and is currently out of stock at Juno Records.

A vinyl only release limited to 300 copies - the A Side features 'Get It On' which is a superb edit of the massive Millie Jackson track which was sampled on Carl Craig's remix of Tom Trago’s - 'Use Me Again' track.  The B Side holds 'Thoughts Of Yesterday', a slo-mo groover that grows on me with each play and is dowsed in the soulful boogie vibes the man has been dropping in his DJ sets for time.

Get It On follows Watson's now sold out debut 12" Ease Along - a brilliantly arranged Cliff Richard picture disc where the world first saw his production talents shine.

As well as being a key player in one of Preston's longest standing club nights, itch, Watson has teamed up with fellow producer Cottam to bring us the 2nd Wired for Sound club night to celebrate the release of Cottam’s 2nd 12” on the Aus music label and Watson’s To Rack & Ruin release.

This week'a show will feature Watson's 8th mini-mix for the show following his last appearance back in February.  Get on it!
