TYSON: “Money isn’t real”

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.

What is your story and musical background?

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.

What are the 6 most favourite songs in your record collection?

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’

Who was the last person you spoke on the phone with?

Michael Jackson

What do you believe in?

I believe in love

Name three things you can’t live without?

Ketchup, tattoo shops & my Donna Summer CD

Tell us a secret

Money isn’t real.
