Ten in depth questions for record label owner Jeff The Fish on his inaugural compilation album Modern Jazz Dance Classics Volume 1. It’s not every day you get to interview a record label owner, who in my opinion is just as important, if not strategic, to the success of many artists. During this discussion, Jeff provided an insight into his journey. With some seriousness and lots of humorous anecdotes. He continues to travel extensively across Europe to source good music and is the host of the popular ‘Fish-parties’ in Perpignan, Southern France. I consider Jeff my outer-national friend of many talents as this interview lightly touches on. He regularly DJs in the UK, Barcelona and Hamburg.  With his glass, not half-full or half-empty approach, he comes across fairly optimistic about his latest music venture. His first album also features one tune that he produced and is available across many platforms including Bandcamp.
