2 months ago we released the Album by Si Spex – Two Sides of Barry. For those who purchased the LP would see that mentioned on the Press Release, there was a private link to this film.
We decided due to the current situation and epidemic that we would now make this film available to the public as we have found our selves in a time where streaming film is at an all-time high.
What we present is a behind the scenes look at the project from the King of the beats Perspective. Back in 1993 I met both Si Spex and Juliano from The Creators in Birmingham’s legendary spot Samebeat Records. I was introduced to them by Damian who along Steve ran the store. At that time I had already started my journey digging and sampling records. It didn’t take long to realize that they were out of my league.
There knowledge and dedication to their art surpassed me. It was the likes of them and Mark B that inspired me to go harder at it.
Years Later when I started filming people working on their craft we worked together on my project the King of the Beats, which was originally a film. Both me and Si Spex kept in touch and maintained contact, which years later led to this project.
I would like to thank all those who supported the project. From purchasing it to all those who helped behind the scenes.
