#LunchtimeListens 016: Roo Walton

Roo Walton is a man of many talents. He's multi-skilled in the ways of the visual artist, expert in the realm of the carpenter, and a bone fide ninja when it comes to vinyl hoarding and tune selecting. His music collection, both physical and digital, spans the genres and decades and over the years I've heard him play soul, hip hop, techno and also Turkish psyche which, I admit, I didn't see coming. But what I'm trying to say is that his love of music is the kind that is 100% inclusive and the very nature of being a digger means he'll always play stuff in his DJ sets that you've never heard before. Just to see the look on your face. That's what being a music enthusiast is all about. 

For his two hour LunchtimeListens set he played records by artists including The Kingstonians, Junior Murvin, Mickey Moonlight, Canned Heat and The Gospel Soul Revivals. LISTEN UP!
