Who is my favorite artist?

People often ask me “who are/is your favorite artist?” and are frequently surprised at my answer of “I don’t have one…” which usually gets a a reply of “what kind of DJ are you????” (I get that one a lot, especially if I don’t have a particular song someone just requested). My answer to that is I’ve never followed artists, as a DJ (and a producer) I’ve always followed PRODUCERS. Almost always the common thread to music I like is a producer. Nile Rodgers is probably the best example of this. From David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance” album to Diana Ross’ “I’m Coming Out” & “Upside Down” singles to “Good Times” & “I Want Your Love” by Chic to Duran Duran’s “The Reflex” to “Original Sin” by INXS to “Material Girl” by Madonna, the common thread is Nile Rodgers. To drive this point home, I’ve never been a big fan of David Bowie’s music (I don’t dispute Bowie’s talent however), except for the “Let’s Dance” album which I absolutely love and undoubtedly it’s because Nile Rodgers produced it.
