Chewy Rubs Influentials and Essentials
Originally from the West Country, now based on the South Coast, I’ve been DJing and producing music for over 22 years and have never lost the desire to find the next hook or endless groove. Recent success has come from edits of past Disco and Funk gems…scraping the surface of a few house classics too, under the names ‘Chewy Rubs‘ and ‘TV’, with releases for labels such as Midnight Riot, Los Grandes, Handshakes, SuperBreak and my own side project Chewy Records.
I started taking editing seriously back in 2000 when I worked in London. Berwick Street and its long list of, at that time, fine record stores was around the corner and the majority of time and wages were spent there. Amongst Jeff Mills finds, I picked also up some inspirational gems like the Automan series; a never heard before edit of T-connection DWYWD; Greg Wilson’s Credit to the Edit vinyls and whatever imported Prins Thomas and Lindstrom I could get my hands on. Some of which feature in this mix.
As you can imagine, there are so many tunes to choose from and this mix, although on the up-beat side, reflects the styles and groove that influenced me over the years. Lets call it Part 1, as I’m not sure I can resist a Part 2….big shout to the Cookie Dough crew…

What was the first record you bought that made you realise that you wanted to be a DJ / Producer?
Joey Beltram – Energy Flash…..never fails, ever since the first time I heard it. One of the most inspirational tracks I own.
What record makes you most nostaligic?
The Fog – Been A Long Time…..Takes me back to the early House days in a barn at Wickton Court, Herefordshire…fine times.
What is your favourite end of night record?
Sheila B.Devotion – Spacer……Lots of set finishers to choose from but this always makes people smile. Although I didn’t finish with it on this mix.
Do you have a guilty pleasure record?
Sylvester – Do You Wanna Funk….My guilty pleasure is soundtracks and this one from the classic 80’s flick ‘Trading Places’ shares a special place in my heart.
What is your most treasured piece of vinyl?
Meco – Star Wars Theme/Cantina Band…..This is the first 7” piece of vinyl I ever owned and still own. I played it to death back in the day so I did a little edit for this mix.
