Funk loving good for nothing nerd making house music and the like.

A self-confessed nerd and 'slave to the funk', Harry was raised on a diet of 'Gang Starr, St Germain, all things Ninja Tune and drum & bass' and there aren't many styles of music that he hasn't dabbled with this past decade.

Having found his feet amongst the deeper echelons of house music, 2012 saw Harry's seminal remix of Ben Pearce's crossover hit 'What I Might Do' smashed out in clubs all over the world. DJ sets across the UK and mainland Europe ensued with remixes and EPs going out on the likes of Strictly Rhythm, Island Records, Dirt Crew and OUTPLAY

In recent times Harry's more sample-focused fusion of house music with his deeper seated influences in hip hop, jazz, soul and funk has found its way onto records for the likes of House of Disco and Dirt Crew Recordings... and into the record bags of Laurent Garnier, Danny Tenaglia, Karizma, Seven Davis Jr and Jimpster to name but a few.

Imagine a combination of an undiscovered Herbie Hancock album from the mid-70s, rare-groove samples from the golden era of hip hop (ATCQ, Pharcyde etc) and the new London sound of bands like Yussef Kamaal.

In Colin's words – "when you consider how fast the DJing world is moving these days, 50 years in the game is a ludicrous thing to contemplate".

Having lived, danced and DJed through the eras of Northern Soul, jazz-funk and house, few can claim to have contributed to UK dance music more than Colin Curtis.

Growing up in Stoke on Motown and Radio Caroline, Colin first started DJing in 1967 and became a figurehead for some of Northern England’s most iconic clubs, including the Blackpool Mecca, Rafters in Manchester and Nottingham’s Rock City.

His experiments with electro and house, alongside Hewan Clarke at The Playpen in Manchester also had a profound impact on the musical direction of the Haçienda. These days his career is viewed with similar superlatives as Mancuso, which we discuss in the below, alongside a look into his life as a record collector and the new jazz dance fusion compilation he’s curated for Z Records.
