Groove aficionado, Sean P. has been a familiar face on the London music scene since the ’80s, most noticeably behind the counters of some of the city’s leading collectors’ record shops. Within the dance music scene, Sean is famous for his encyclopaedic knowledge of soul, funk, disco, boogie, rare groove, jazz-funk and jazz. Bill Brewster, co-author of the book ‘Last Night A DJ Saved My Life’, described Sean as someone he would call if ‘I ever had a question or something I was not sure about’.
Thanks to his 'Black Music Oracle' reputation, Sean has contributed rare source material and/or sleevenotes for various re-issue projects. Sean has co-compiled several successful albums with long-time friend Joey Negro. The two seminal ‘Disco (Not Disco)’ LPs which featured punk disco from the likes of The Clash, Yoko Ono and Ian Dury, are regarded as genre-defining.
Sean is also highly respected for his re-edits of rare disco gems which have been greatly appreciated by an ever-growing number of DJs who are discovering the hidden treasures of ’70s and early ’80s dance music.
Sean DJs at club nights throughout the country following a series of appearances at some of the best underground parties in London. He has also moved into the specialist field of audio restoration and remastering. Recent clients include legendary club DJ, Greg Wilson, Barrington Levy and BBE
The Most Recent recording is the early hip hop and rap LP 'Rock it don't stop it! ' Compiled by Sean P
"Hip hop and rap are now a dominant force in contemporary music and have constantly adapted to stay relevant, drawing on and absorbing all around them. ‘Rock It… Don’t Stop It!’ goes back over 30 years to their collective big bang moment"
