Paul Dakeyne has been in this business for a third of a century. Cutting his teeth as a DJ and remixer way before Acid House and the Summer Of Love took the UK by storm at the end of the 80s, he went on to score one of the biggest dance hits of the 90s, Tinman's "18 Strings", that just so happened to have been based around Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" guitar riff.
In this episode of Tales From The Dancefloor, Paul talks about his early days having left home to move to London as a remixer, how "that" tune changed his life, and his life since as a podcaster, photographer, DJ tech ambassador, educator... and now full circle back to producing.
