Buddy Love started his musical journey at an early age, having an ear for sounds far beyond his years. After taking an interest in David Bowie at the age of 13 he was given a collection of Bowie LPs from his aunt. This was to be the start of his ever expanding and evolving record collection.
Growing up in the golden age of hip hop he naturally gravitated towards these sounds throughout his teenage years and on still to this day. As the story so often goes, it didn’t take long for Buddy to become ever more curious as to where these samples used so masterfully to construct his favourite songs had originated. Slowly he found himself buying less and less hip hop 12” singles and more and more gritty soul and funk LPs.
With time, Buddy Love’s musical taste grew to encompass the far wider spectrum of black music. Thanks to the very influential company he kept, he was introduced deeper into the sound. Now taking a much heavier interest in jazz, jazz funk and all of the funkier grooves that the world had to offer but whilst always staying predominantly in the 70’s.
As a self confessed bedroom DJ for many years there came a point when he knew it was the time to share the collection he had been compiling for all these years. With stints on a pirate radio station based in North London he got his chance and didn’t look back. After a hiatus from radio to concentrate on filling dance floors he felt it was time to pick up where he left off and take you all on the journey that is his very own “Soul Transit”.
