Tom Zanetti reveals Kevin & Perry inspired him to start mixing records


THEY were Ibiza’s naffest DJs but we have Kevin & Perry to thank for giving us Tom Zanetti.

The DJ and producer says Harry Enfield and Kathy Burke's comedy characters inspired him to start mixing records.

After watching the classic movie Go Large, he asked his dad for a pair of decks.

In an exclusive interview, Tom said: “I got a pair of decks for Christmas when I was a kid because I watched Kevin & Perry.

"I was buzzing. That’s how I wanted to be a DJ.

“My dad gave me some turntables. He was a DJ too, in the Nineties. He used to play all over.

"He used to take me to parties with him when I was a kid. I used to watch him set up and listen to him play Nineties house music.”

But the Leeds DJ, who has dropped new track Didn’t Know after starring last month in Celebs Go Dating: The Mansion, also has his savvy schoolmates to thank for his career.

They would copy the CDs he recorded his mixes on to and sell them at school – with one ending up in a Leeds market that would ultimately lead to a big fanbase.

Tom revealed: “I made about five copies of a CD. Gave one to a friend, gave one to my mum, then my mates started copying the CDs and selling them at school.

“I didn’t even know, but this CD had been getting about, and it ended up on the market.

“I walked through there one day and a guy said to me, ‘Your CD has been on the stall. It’s been the bestseller for, like, a year’.”

I’m off to play All I Wanna Do Is Do It.
