The ubiquitous Alan Hawkshaw was the best-known British composer you’d never heard of

Good article, especially on all the stuff of his that got sampled in later years....


"...Alan Hawkshaw’s late-life status as a funky hero to American hip-hop producers came as something of a surprise to him. “I remember getting an email asking for clearance for a piece,” he told me a few years ago. “And I rang my daughter asking who ‘Jay Zed’ was.” " :hihi:

OK, I saw "Hawkshaw" and immediately thought Kirsty had died, then wondered if there was a relationship - turns out it's her dad :(

If only..

That bit did make me chuckle as I always used to like to wind up the youngsters at my work with stuff like, "you young people with your tik-tiks, your snip-chat and your Jay Zed, you know nothing."
