Frogcast 001: Producer, DJ and Music Studio Owner, meet Will Flisk!
Who started the first DJ Bar in the UK? Will Flisk did. Will, together with his business partners, set up Bar Vinyl which was voted one of the UK's Top 10 Best Bars in the 90's. Located in Camden, Bar Vinyl had quite the reputation and Will openly admits to not remembering most of his time there. That said with guests like Boy George and Fat Boy Slim together with the MTV crews casually popping in to record music videos and interviews from his bar, he has quite a few funny stories to tell. Come with me as we chat about the launch of Bar Vinyl; how he hosted a tent for 2000 people in Glastonbury whilst sleeping next to Rob Da Bank; his time in Greece where he was frequently called Malakas as a term of endearment; his up and coming new Vinyl releases and how world famous artist Damien Hirst drew him to Ilfracombe in North Devon which has now resulted in him opening his very own studio called Gates Of the West Studio to help new and emerging local talent.Oh and we also cover a bit about me and how my Box of Frogs podcast got its name which is as mad as it sounds!To hear more of Will’s music find him on Soundcloud: @WillFliskWill’s North Devon Studio is at www.gatesofthewest.co.ukA bit about me ….
