TiD&B’s The Conversion Conversation: Alley CatPosted by Lady V on Thursday, January 5th, 2012
In our weekly feature The Conversion Conversation, we delve a little bit deeper, giving you an insight into some of your favourite artists’ most memorable and influential moments in music; when they got hooked on drum and bass, and their lives changed forever.
Our first Conversion Conversation of 2012, has us chatting with Kokeshi queen Alley Cat…
“It was a specific era that really drew me in - the mid 90s when I heard stuff like PFM ‘The Western’, LTJ Bukem’s ‘Horizons’, old Metalheadz stuff like Goldie’s ‘Timeless’ for example, Boymerang, The Prototype Years and such.
PFM ‘The Western’ (Good Looking Records, 1995)
Boymerang ‘Soul Beat Runna’ (Regal Recordings, 1997)
I also had an A.W.O.L import CD (because I was living in the US at the time) and hearing the vibes on that just completely got me hooked, not to mention also the experience of the underground parties which I was going to too.
It was just an electric time for music, and drum and bass had everything that I loved; atmosphere, energy and LOTS OF BASS!”
