There are two artists named Mr Cooper. One is a Reggae singer from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The other was born in 1983 in a small village in East Anglia. Moved to Brighton when I was 3. First track that I remember liking: Money, money, money by Abba. Made pause button compilation tapes of various types of dance music from the radio in my early teens. Got into good hip hop age 14. Started bedroom djing age 16. Computers got powerful enough to handle sample based production when I was 16. A friend of a friend showed me some music software when I was 16.
