Meet The Curator: Paul Sims
I’ve been passionate about music for as long as I can remember, bought and sold many music collections along the way, first records, I had the Technics twin decks and DJ aspirations but only ever used them to make mixtapes for friends, making them became even easier with downloads, loved the portability, storage options and ease of use, so sold over 100s of cd’s at boot fairs/garage sales for regrettably silly money, Massive Attack - Blue Lines for 50p anyone. Shamefully ripped all them records and cd’s to the lowest quality format and they were all unplayable, but still amassed over 10’000 mp3’s on a PC that eventually took one hour to boot up, so that’s got to go, time to move on again. Now I just stream, for me the best format yet, love the amount of music you can discover and the mixtape, now called a playlist is so simple, quick and with the accessibility of music so much more interesting, so I started using Youtube first to share my T.R.O.Y playlists of classic Soul and Disco on the Facebook group I set up in 2013 and now enjoy working with Musicto and mainly using Spotify to share my passion for Soul and Dance on Shake a Hoof.
Music To Shake A Hoof
Shake a Hoof is a slang term it means to dance, we share the best in Soul, Funk, Jazz, Disco, Dub, Rap, House and everything in between music that will make you shake your hoof, throw your arms in the air or just gently nod your head, on our main Shake a Hoof playlist we have special features on classic artists, clubs and record labels, our artist of the week feature often includes interviews and biographies and we also have a featured track section that profiles new music (from the last 12 months) from one of our six new playlists, if you want to go back bit further back in time check out the T.R.O.Y lists below.
T.R.O.Y - They Reminisce Over You
Shake a Hoof came from a comment made on the Facebook group, They Reminisce “I could shake a hoof to that” on it we share all kinds of music (not just dance) from the fifties right through to present day, I’ve created six specialized playlists updated weekly, a multi genre collaborative playlist complied by the group members, a comprehensive A-Z of Soul, Funk & Disco, discography collections of House, Rap, Dub, Soul and Jazz and much more from the T.R.O.Y members themselves including many quality DJ mixes.
Want Your Music On A Shake A Hoof Playlist
When did the blues become indigo is a reference made by a music journalist I read some years ago, it’s meaning is about how one genre of music mutates into another, we continually search to discover new shades to add to that spectrum and tell the story of how the blues transformed into today’s music, if you are making or promoting music that you think would fit our playlists complete the form below.
