Yam Who?'s MIDNIGHT RIOT RECORDS presents its ninth monthly podcast.
This festive mix comes from our man down under Dr Packer and its a dance floor filled riot. Dr Packer is an alias of West Australian DJ/Producer 'Greg Packer'. Whilst still living in the UK greg was exposed to a record label called 'Street Sounds' ran by 'Morgan Khan' he began collecting the 'Electro Series' and 'Street Sounds Series' and a regular follower of 'Mike Allen's - Capitol Radio' show in London , he was a full blown 'B-Boy' and Hip Hop Junkie.
In 1998 Greg took up production and set up his own studio running his own label 'Interphase Music' He produced over 100 tracks & remixes under the name 'Greg Packer' and was signed to many other labels in the UK & USA including 'Good Looking Records'
Early last year (2013) Greg began mixing entire sets from CD therefore searching for music online , he started picking up re-edits, a certain artist stood out to him known as the 'Late Nite Tuff Guy' he loved the way the original songs were beefed up and sounded fat on a club system but the original vibe was still there , also these edits were quantised perfectly meaning you were able to beat mix them flawlessly unlike playing the original vinyl...
In August 2013 Greg Produced his first two edits under the name 'Dr Packer' and Labels Such as 'Disco Dat , Hot Digits , Hotbox Boogie & Midnight Riot' have all shown plenty of love for the doctor so things wont be slowing down anytime soon... every release so far has hit the number one spot on the 'Juno Download sales chart'.

MIDNIGHT RIOT / 80'S CHILD ALBUM LAUNCH / SEPT 13TH
TO BUY / 80'S CHILD 'CONTAGIOUS' ALBUM
Warrington born UK DJ & Producer Danny Worrall delivers his debut album for London's Midnight Riot.
A true Child of the 80's & hugely influenced by his musical youth, including artists; Hall & Oates, Cameo, Alexander O'Neal, Evelyn Champagne King to name just a few, his 'Contagious' album shows his love and passion for this music.
It was online where he discovered other aspiring and established like minded souls such as Greg Wilson, Late Nite Tuff Guy, Get Down Edits, Fingerman, Yam Who? and Tiger & Woods who incorporated the same styles and direction that he was pursuing himself.
Avoiding the obvious, he's delivered a long-player full of 80s synth-tastic radio-friendly work-outs, relentless electrofunk floor anthems and sensuous & smooth slow jams mixed with his slamming trademark beats and razor tight production.

Filled with chopped and looped dreamy synth soul, retro disco house and boogie stormers perfect for the bar, the club and the chilled out dance floors.
