He’s worked with everyone from Dr Dre to Banksy and Mark Ronson and his new album, Home Cooking, showcases a more mature sound, prioritising songs over beats. Gary Walker puts 10 questions to a modern-day turntable legend

What are your earliest vinyl memories?

“My dad worked in the music industry and kept his record collection in my bedroom, so I grew up literally surrounded by vinyl. I would mess around with my parents’ hi-fiand emulate the scratch sounds I was hearing in late-80s hip-hop.”

That was really the first community of DJs that I tapped into, too, so it was really important.”
