FL: Which were your favourite one off singles?

AF: Traedonya because I was so enamoured with Pumpkin at that time. He had already been hooked up by Profile Records. They paid for his studio. He had a drum machine an emulator, a DMX and a keyboard. He would bring in girls from the street, girls he wanted to hook up with. I just knew I was capturing a unique period of history. There was also a girl called Puffy Dee, she was white girl living uptown. It was a record called ‘Joe Blow’. She rhymed over Pumpkins beats. I thought her rhymes were brilliant but she predated video unfortunately. My other favourite was ‘Baby Be Mine’ by Eddie Ski White. It was an early example of r ‘n’ b but with the big fat beats of hip-hop.
