Here is a little bit of information away from the Photographic and Film side of the activity at Chalkley Towers. For those of you that don't know Dean regularly DJ's and organises club nights around London and other parts of the UK. Soul and Rhythm & Blues form the core of his DJ sets but Latin Boogaloo, Rare Groove and other dancefloor filling genres are included in his unique sonic blends. Dean created SHAKE! at the Boogaloo that ran at the imfamous North London Venue The Boogaloo Bar for 4 years (click
here for a live Radio Nova Lujon broadcast of one of the nights.). After that residency drew to a close Dean and his DJ buddy Si Cheeba started up '
Black Cat' at the crutial Club bar The Silver Bullet. Black cat has been running regularly there for 3 years.
Dean and his fellow Black Cat collective play only Vinyl records....
