Tim Westwood is one of the UK’s perennial powerhouse DJs. In the latest episode of Crate Diggers, Westwood goes in on his formative club-junky days, rising through the ranks of fortified vinyl-wreckers with a tireless fervor. Seasoned and hardened by the grind of DJ-stardom, the UK selector spins his favorite bone-chilling cuts, citing Keni Burke‘s sophistofunk groove “Risin’ To The Top” as an early champion amongst UK steppers, recalling a sweaty mist befalling the record as he spun it in his early days. The charismatic radio and (now) internet personality gives a detailed account of some of the more shoddy venues he’s moved crowds at and breaks down his mixing theory in one of the more surprisingly educational installments of Crate Diggers yet. Watch Tim Westwood lay it all out there below.
