Blue-in-Green:PODCAST #49: Dr Rubberfunk

Welcome to Episode #49 of the Blue-in-Green:PODCAST which sees Imran connect with Simon "Dr Rubberfunk" Ward.

Riding high off the release of his new album 'My Life at 45', Dr Rubberfunk has been a staple within the UK's funk & soul scene for years - professing to be "Not a real Doctor since 1992" and a Jalapeno Records recording artist since 2008 - his name has become synonymous as being a leading name for inventive and innovative music within a thriving scene.  In this episode, we have the opportunity to discuss the new album, his time with Jalapeno Records, having produced Izo Fitroy's debut album release, his countless remixes for other artists and how the music industry has evolved for vinyl purists who are now having to adapt to modern-day streaming culture.

Such a pleasure to have secured time with Simon for a snapshot of his invaluable experiences and insight into his music-making processes.
