DJ of the month: Tony Humphries

Helen Mead, i-D, 1992

IF YOU want respect you have to give respect. This is Tony Humphries' trademark. The standard he sets his life by. Of all the talk of turntable stars, DJ legends, names that make or break artists, he actually does. But he'd never admit it, least of all to himself. And that's his secret. He never stops looking at what he does as a passion. He never gets sloppy, takes it for granted. He still aspires while he inspires millions.
