EQTV: eddy temple-morris

It’s not often that a DJ can command the same sort of respect from rock fans as they can from the dancefloor, but in the case of Eddy Temple-Morris, it’s safe to say he has a pretty strong following in both camps. And this is all down to one thing: he has one of the most open minds in the music industry. If it sounds good, Eddy will play it, either to a sweating dancefloor, or to thousands of listeners across the UK who tune in to xfm every week to hear his pioneering show The Remix.

The name fits like a glove, because Eddy has been out there digging up the cheekiest bootlegs and making the sexiest remixes for years. Through Eddy, the likes of Kasabian find their way into clubland, turning die-hard clubbers onto more guitar-based sounds. Now Eddy’s finally committed some of his favourite remixes to disc on the excellent Dance Rocks, a mix and unmixed compilation of tracks from the likes of Snow Patrol, The Who, The Doors, Ladytron and The Prodigy, remixed by Eddy himself, as well as Adam Freeland, Evil Nine and Skool of Thought.

EQTV caught up with Eddy to find out more about the album, his radio show, his DJing and his unique taste in music…
