Tyson wears disco like a badge of honour. The Londoner returned to the music scene this year with a new track ‘Fight’- something which wouldn’t sound out of place on a sticky dancefloor circa 1973- full of catchy loops and enough Prince-like funk to light a firework. In fact, the disco is something of an obesssion with him and runs through his blood. We have a brief chat with him here:
What are you doing right now?
Working on my new album, it’s sounding amazing. It’s like Tina Turner meets Visage.

I’m just a West London ghetto boy turned fashionista. I was bred on the usual Jodeci, Jagged Edge, Ruff Endz, then one day I stumbled across Bowie which changed my life forever.

Tina Turner – We Don’t Need Another Hero Desireless – Voyage Voyage Laura Branigan – Self Control Donna Summer – I Feel Love David Bowie – Ashes To Ashes Visage – Fade To Grey
Do you make your music for anyone in particular in mind?
I make music for everyone that’s tired of ‘the system’
