Booker T is one of the UK’s most prolific and respected House music producers and DJs in the industry, who has enjoyed widespread success straddling both the commercial and underground scenes.
Inspired by the vitality and atmosphere of New York’s night life such as Underground Network with Louie Vega (Masters At Work) at the Sound Factory Bar and Shelter, Booker returned to London with a new musical focus to make house music. His first tune Underground Mass’ “Didn’t I” was snapped up by Azuli and Atlantic’s Big Beat label, after Tony Humphries championed it on NYC’s Kiss FM station.
As an artist Booker T has always been a pioneer. He was the first UK artist to be signed to the incredible Strictly Rhythm label as Inner Souls with “Tearin Me Apart” and he was at the forefront of vocal house music. He notched up classics such as LZ Love “See The Light” on Slip N’Slide and Kathy Wood’s “Give Me Joy”. Massively in demand now for remix work Booker re-worked Jody Watley’s “Off The Hook” alongside Masters At Work and Soul II Soul’s “I Care” flanked by a Roger Sanchez Remix, and work kept flooding in.
Working with ground-breaking labels such as Junior Boys Own, AM:PM and Phuture Trax, his souful vocal and keyboard sound dominated the dancefloor working his magic on top artists such as Robin S, Quincy Jones, Usher, Sounds Of Blackness, All Saints’ “Never Ever” worldwide smash, which won him ‘Remix Of The Year’ at the Underground Dance Awards, and Robert Owens. Booker has been involved with over 200 releases and remixes.
Booker T’s talent as both a Producer and DJ means there is a continuous demand for his House and production sets. During Miami’s Winter Music Conference he was interviewed by June Sarpong and Eric Morillo for MTV, and played at Garage City’s Miami party. In demand on the international club scene Booker has held a residency at Ibiza’s Es Paradis playing with Paul Trouble Anderson and Bobby & Steve.
