Taas on aika kilkuttaa kelloa r'n'b:n kautta houseen. Viikon ulkomainen vieras, The Rhythm Doctor eli Chris Long, tunnetaan etelänaapurissa parhaimmin yhtenä Bon Bon -klubin keulahahmona. Chrisin värikäs tausta on lähtöisin elämänasenteesta, ja mies puhuu kokemuksistaan tunteikkaasti, lainasimme kappaleen tuota kertomusta..
The Rhythm Doctor / Artists (R).
The Rhythm Doctor has been a DJ for over twenty five years, spinning a wide selection of music from house to Latin and disco to jazz, the mid 90s saw the Rhythm Doctor spreading his vibes far and wide across the globe. A top 10 Bill Board hit Enjoy life on 8 Ball Records took him to New York and virtually every major city in Europe. An offer of work in Estonia in 1995 was to have a major effect on his life. After being blown away by an amazing warehouse party in Tallinn, he was offered a monthly venue and proceeded in bringing over many top artists to perform including Robert Owens, A Man Called Adam and Basement Jaxx.
In Tallinn he met the love of his life, married and in 1997 together with Raul Saaremets , established Estonia's first monthly independent party. Guests have included DJ Pierre, Joe Caissel, Gilles Peterson, Ashley Beadle and Cassio ware. Today he has his own club, restaurant and bar in Tallinn called BonBon.
