With his early musical roots firmly in soul and jazz Kev Beadle has been one of the scene’s most respected selector/tastemakers for over 30 years.
He has played all over the world entertaining crowds with his selections and is never afraid to push musical boundaries playing a broad spectrum of music rooted in jazz and soul from days gone by right through to today’s future electronica.

From the pirate radio days of the mid 80’s presenting shows on Starpoint, K-Jazz, as well as the odd show for KissFM he has continued a strong radio presence with his very popular weekly Mind Fluid show on Solar Radio which has been broadcasting for over 15 years and can also be heard as a podcast here and .

He was also a long standing resident DJ in the Jazz Room and Beat Bar at the legendary Southport Weekender for over 20 years.

With a discography in double figures, he has put together some well received compilation albums for labels like Blue Note (Capitol Rare series), Cadet (Argo/Cadet Grooves) as well as more upfront musical offerings (Nu Jazz Generation 1 &2) for BBE and his own Clean Up label.
In recent years he has been back compiling LPs for BBE with his own Kev Beadle Presents Private Collection series with Volume 3 hopefully being released later in the year.

Apart from being a club, radio presenter he has had experience in many sides of the music industry including promotion, distribution and retail, working in and running some of London’s most legendary record shops including Soul Jazz Records (now Sounds Of The Universe), Mr Bongo and Release The Groove and as if this isn’t enough he also produces under the name Messengers and R.K. Edits.

We are honored to have Kev jumping over the puddle to be with us for the next installation of thePeople Oakland. One by one, dreams are becoming reality. Gratitude x infinity! LONDON CALLING! x
