We catch up with DJ to the stars, Mr Silk picture

Known for his #BANGtheDRUMS show on Bang Radio 103.6FM every Thursday, Mr Silk is set to ignite the dancefloor with smooth mixes of foot stomping afro, latin and deep house delights when he headlines Deep Into Soul on Saturday November 19th at Brixton’s Prince Of Wales.

Working with international DJs DJ Chuckie (Let theBass Kick) and Party Squad (Holland) as well as hosting parties for Hollywood A Listers such as Will Smith and Samuel Jackson and music superstars Faith Evans, SWV, Akon and even the Prince Of Brunei, Mr Silk one of the A List party DJs.

My favourite record shop or shop is…

Probably Supertone Records on Acre Lane in Brixton. A lot of hard earned paper-boy money was spent monthly!

My favourite shop is

You’ll probably find me rushing to the Apple store at Westfield in the White City so by default I guess it's the Westfield multiplex.

My favourite club is…

Mondial on a Sunday night in Beek, Maastricht has been going for 20 years and that’s such a great achievement! http://www.mondialnights.com/
I also like the Electric in Brixton which always has a good vibe and especially on the dance floor. http://electricbrixton.uk.com/
But right now the Melkweg in Amsterdam is something with its moving light system and that bass line on their sound system that just does it for me. https://www.melkweg.nl/nl/


My favourite club night is…

LOL... That's gotta be Drums x Vibes, an Afro vocal tribal House Party with great people, the right atmosphere, and extremely good music like Mr Kiplings apple pies!…and of course Deep into Soul, which again has all the above and some great International and home-grown guest DJs and can’t wait to play there on November 19th.


If I could DJ with any celebrity (musical or non musical) it would be…

Will Smith is probably the coolest superstar ever along with Samuel Jackson and either of them would be great to work with again! :-)


The song that reminds me most of London is…

The Scott Garcia garage anthem, ‘It's a London Thing’ …probably the cheesiest of cheese of London Tunes and could do with an Afro House remix!


When I’m in a bar I drink…

I'm don’t drink unless I can see Sun Sand and Sea! and then my usual is pineapple on the rocks!…using rocks makes it sound much less wimpish!


My favourite pub/bar is…

Loves Company in Shoreditch do some great virgin cocktails, and I always find myself slipping in when passing. It’s got a great atmosphere, and it’s just the right size to keep it intimate.

My favourite restaurant is…

Three Little Birds in Coldharbour Lane, Brixton as I love the way the menu changes and its great bucket of chicken wings which always seems endless! Other than that I will be in a Bodeans getting my meat on! ...

If I want a little peace and quiet when I’m in London I…

You’ll probably find me in a the British Library, in a park or walking along the South Bank ..


The best area of London is…

South West London ... I mean is there anywhere better?


If I could change one thing about London…

Extend 24 hour trading to more nightclubs and open new clubs to replace the ones we’re losing!


One thing everyone should do in London is…

Smile!... well that and experience the rush hour crush, nothing like a crushed tube/bus/train to give you a real sense of London.
