I’m a Record dealer and DJ/Promoter in the UK. specialising in soul music. My business runs through our web site www.topdogrecords.co.uk .

We hold over 20,000 titles at anyone time, covering Soul, Funk, Boogie & R&B on wax and CD.

In the 80’s I ran a very sucessful northern soul allniter in the UK at Top Of The World, Stafford, under the Top Dog Soul Club banner. In the 90’s it continued with the innovative Bretby Allnighters. Now days I spend much of my time DJing in Europe with my wife DJ Malayka. Malayka runs the internationally aclaimed Soulshakers weekender in Bamberg, Germany (Check out her page) http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?i….

My complete passion is soul music and the people that make it.

Currently we can be heard on ‘The Soul People’ radio show, Solar Radio. You can listen to some of our shows here
