Earlier this week, we lost a true, bona-fide legend.

The name Paul "Trouble" Anderson has been hand-in-hand with black music and club culture in this country for over 4 decades - in my humble opinion, the finest DJ to come out of the UK. As a DJ, as a dancer, as what's known nowadays as a "tastemaker", he held your attention, he commanded your senses, he made you dance until you were ready to drop, and then made you dance just a little bit more...I am proud to have known him, proud to have played alongside him on more than one occasion, and, like so many others, I am crushed at his passing. DJs and clubbers of a certain age owe him a massive debt, and it's no exaggeration to say that all that we do in small or large parts is due to his influence, his energy, his zest for life and his all-encompassing love for the music he was always so generous in sharing. Someone today called him "our Frankie Knuckles", and in one sense I would agree with that, but for the fact he was uniquely, and 100%, "Trouble".

Personally, my life has been elevated beyond measure - the fabulous music I've acquired, the wonderful memories and moments I've experienced, and the many laughs I shared with him in DJ booths and "out-out" back in the day. This morning's "Risin' " session doesn't go anywhere near covering the kind of tribute that Paul truly deserves, but I wanted a little slot to spin some tracks that I associate with him from my early days as a clubber and burgeoning DJ on the funk, soul and jazz scene...because, simply put, without him, there'd be no Brother C.

RIP to the Master, Paul "Trouble" Anderson - my heartfelt thanks and love.

This has been a week of trials and tribulations for so many people I know (to use the biblical term), so this morning's "Risin' " goes out to them, and all of you in a similar situation...call it a "healing session" through the power of music? As I stated at the end of the show, I hope you all manage to find a "resting place" this weekend - and to those just pushing on with this "life" stuff, just enjoy the sweet n' soulful nature of today's session. Peace to one and all...

...this morning's show started off as a normal Saturday morning ride, and was then punctuated by the incoming sad news of the passing of a true UK DJing legend. George Power, along with Paul "Trouble" Anderson and Paul Murphy, were directly responsible for the growth of my love of the soul, the funk and the jazz - my record shelves are more than testament to that, and I'm fairly sure that all I've done on the musical front can be traced back to them. RIP George - thank you for your influence, and the glorious education through choons that you played during some amazing nights at the Electric Ballroom. They will live long in my memory...

...enjoy the show.
