Like DJ History nicely put it Chris Duckenfield is responsible for some of the best house music ever to be made in the UK. Furthermore he is a well respected and very experienced DJ and Burek’s first pick when it comes to DJs. With countless releases and even more gigs behind him Chris is the most suitable person to begin a series of interviews on this blog. With him we discussed music, his distribution and current topics related to music. Lets go.
Bill Brewster sits down for a chat with "the Duck" to talk house music, Sheffield, Warp Records and being sampled by Altern 8.

Chris began his addiction to music at an early age. His parent's record collections and passion for music meant he was exposed to everything from Motown and Classical to Black Sabbath at home. As a teenager early Hip Hop and Electro became his obsession and at the time he left school, the first wave of Chicago house was hitting the clubs he sneaked into after-hours. Sheffield's vibrant illegal party scene at the end of the eighties introduced Chris to a different style of music and Djing altogether; he was hooked.
