Image: 1604220 The list of musical highlights for Vincent Williams
aka DJ Spinna are too numerous to list, from his
seminal hip hop duo Jigmastas and DJ sets across
the globe, to his iconic solo productions and
remixes. But if you ask him, it's the relationship
he's forged with personal hero Stevie Wonder
that Spinna considers to be his single greatest
As with most artists of a soulful persuasion,
Stevie's music influenced Spinna from the outset,
dictating everything from his approach to writing
to his use of Fender Rhodes and Moog bass-lines
on his productions. Having gained so much from
the great man, Spinna decided to pay tribute in
the form of 'Wonderfull', a series of parties
celebrating the Wonder of Stevie. This is where the
story became somewhat surreal for Spinna,
suddenly finding himself joined onstage in
Washington D.C. by none other than Stevie
himself, a spine-tingling moment even when
viewed on YouTube.
An extension of the Wonderfull parties, this album
represents a celebration of the life, music and
cultural impact of Stevie Wonder. Few compilers
can boast Spinna's understanding of Stevie's back
catalogue, not to mention the large number of
songs he's written for other artists over the years.
Featuring stunning cover versions you may well
have never heard before alongside songs many of
us had no idea he'd written, Spinna's vast
knowledge of and boundless enthusiasm for
Stevie's music shines with every selection. As both
a super-fan and a close friend, surely there is
nobody better placed to compile this wonderful
document of Stevie Wonder's music, inspiration
and influence.
Key Selling Points:
- The album focuses on cover versions, compositions and
collaborations by Stevie Wonder, one of the most critically
