DAVID RIPOLLES (UK)
* Wich was your first experience into the rare soul world? If it was a club, wich one was it? My first introduction to the rare soul world came when a couple of my brothers friends who were Wigan Casino regulars brought a box of records to our house around 1976 or ’77… we taped them all and virtually wore those tapes out over the next year or so. My first club experience came a year or two later when My brother and I used to go to the ‘Rudies’ all dayers in Scarborough which coincided with a huge bank holiday scooter rally. We would listen and dance to the likes of Rob Smith and Paul Temple playing amazing Northern Soul. They gave me the first introduction to the more modern side of things via records like Larry Houston, Aristocrats, Dutch Robinson and ZZ and co and in doing so set my taste from then until now!!

* Wich is your main aim or interest when playing your records to a soul crowd? I’ve never really considered myself a dj and so when I play records I hope to get the same kind of reaction from a crowd as I like to experience as one of them. I hope to play something a little different to that, that they more usually hear, by mixing up genres, eras, styles and tempos in a way that flows so that dancers want to stay on the floor even when they don’t know a record. I like nothing better than to see someone loving and dancing to a record as if they’ve known it forever and then when it finishes rushing to the decks to say’ What the F.. was that!!?”. If i can touch a few people like that i feel i have done my job.
Having played at Movin’ on before, I know that I am going to get that reaction and that is what excites me to keep playing and looking for those elusive tunes…

* If you’ve been playing for Movin’ On before, how do you rate your previous experience? If not, just tell us what do you expect it to be. Last Decembers Movin’ on probably rates as one of my best ever dj’ing experiences… simply to be sharing the stage with Soul Sam and Butch was enough, but the crowd was inspirational and the atmosphere generated was something that everyone who was there will remember. Happy smiling people dancing without prejudice… how it should always be!

GEORGE MAHOOD (UK)
* Wich was your first experience into the rare soul world? If it was a club, wich one was it? My friend Chris (now Ayub) King had a funk night in Norwich during the early to mid ‘90s called Superfly which affected me a lot. Then I spent six months buying records in upstate New York when I was at college there in 1996, and got hooked on digging. The following year I started a night of my own in Nottingham at a club called The Lenton, and soon fell under the influence of Keb Darge who ended up playing there once a month. Those were my most important experiences; I never went to a “proper” rare soul club until the early 2000’s, and even then it didn’t really have much of an impression on me.

* Wich is your main aim or interest when playing your records to a soul crowd? My main interest is in trying to find & play records that most “scene” people don’t know, because I think it’s important to keep the culture moving forward. My aims are to do as much of the digging work as possible myself, since it’s more rewarding that way (there’s no skill in just relying on records made big by other DJs, or on ones that are spoon-fed by tastemakers), and, perhaps more importantly, to build a distinctive overall sound of my own. But at the same time it’s all about having fun, and I like to enjoy myself as much as anyone, so I try not to take it too seriously.

* If you’ve been playing for Movin’ On before, how do you rate your previous experience? If not, just tell us what do you expect it to be. I’ve played at the club once before, and without wanting to sound like a bum licker, I rate it as one of the best rare soul events I’ve been to. Good resident DJs, club & sound system; enthusiastic & knowledgeable crowd; and based in a great city: it’s got everything covered.

JOSEP A. (Valencia):
* Which was your first experience into the rare soul world? If it was a club, wich one was it? Los primeros acercamientos fueron a fiestas locales como los que organizaban La sal de la tierra, Autumn o los Goldfingers, aunque en esos tiempos lo que me devoraba las neuronas y las pesetas era el Reggae y entonces llegó el Floorshaker del 99 con Tyrone Willis, Mick Smith, Herminio, Edu y el Groove Collective…

* Which is your main aim or interest when playing your records to a soul crowd? La verdad es que no lo sé muy bien porque disfruto más al otro lado, pero un día fuimos a Lifeline y no sé si fue el olor de la moqueta, los discos que allí sonaron o las eternas ponencias… pero fue volver a Valencia y empezar a comprar 45s de manera compulsiva hasta que el Mardi me dio la alternativa en una fiesta organizada por él donde tocaban los “putos amos aka Teenagers”.

* If you’ve been playing for Movin’ On before, how do you rate your previous experience? If not, just tell us what do you expec it to be. Nervios y agradecimientos a partes iguales. Fue un placer pinchar con uno de los Top Dj como es Steve Guarnori, aparte de Cristina & Edu, además conseguí en esa ocasión que David no me metiera el dedo en el ojo mientas pinchaba…
