Ralph Lawson is a pivotal figure in UK electronic music.
The DJ kicked off the first track at Leeds' epochal Back To Basics night, and spent 19 years there as a resident. With his 2020 Soundsystem and other projects the producer has become a familiar sight at festivals around the globe, a DJ almost continually in demand.
Set to return to London with his 2020 VISION DAY NIGHT parties, Ralph Lawson has recorded a mix exclusively for Clash. Here's the intro:
Buzzin' to be on the RADIO CLASH Airwaves again - it's been too long people! How y'all feelin'? I got a days notice on this mix so I hope it turned out OK. Threw that in the mix of getting ready for first time camping with the kids to Camp Bestival via Devon. But you know what I still knew I had to t-t-take my chances and get the mix in.
CLASH came along when music magazines were finished and made it cool again. I also have a lot of memories about times reading the magazine on a train or being at one of their live events in a field in Scotland or somewhere. They also really supported my band 2020Soundsystem when we were live so can call in a favour like this - YO!
