London, United Kingdom
RetroRuss is from `Back in the Day's'- discovering soul and funk at the age of 14 and in 1976, and started collecting the sounds from them. He did his first gig aged 14 years and then followed on with a series of one offs over the years. He discovered that it was better listening then playing! In 1976 he sneaked himself into the old Royalty in Southgate, North London before, at the age of 18, in 1978 getting `known' in the West club scene - at the time there was an explosion of disco music and RetroRuss got to know all the leading DJ's of the time, helping them on the decks occasionally, enjoying the energy of dance music of the time - always staying one step ahead of the pack.
