I recently had the privilege of doing a Skype interview with Irish producer and remixer, John Gibbons, following the release of his latest single and cover of the massive 1994, ‘Hotstepper’.
We spoke all about how some of his cover versions came to be, who he’d most like to collaborate with, what his passions are outside of music and one of his most embarrassing moments on stage. It’s all here…
John Gibbons‘ releases are all available:

Can you throwback to a time your weren’t even born yet?! I don’t know, but I’m going to!
Earth, Wind & Fire released this massive tune, ‘September’, back in 1978. At the time of it’s release, it reached Number 3 in the UK charts. It was then remixed by Phats & Small and re-released (as ‘September 1999’) in 1999.
It has also been covered countless times and appeared in many forms of media, including Family Guy, American Dad! and The Cleveland Show.
This song is just about everything fun you could want in a song; it’s the perfect blend of R&B and Disco and has enough Funk to almost be considered lethal; it’s awesome!
Are you a fan? Will this song get you groovin’? Please share it on your social media accounts! Much love 🙂
