  2. Not just tall in stature, Dannie”Fut” James was a giant of a man in ways that would supersede what the eyes would see. With a soft voice and a stern determination, “Fut” got the job done. Along with his partner, Tracy Kendrick, he was relentless in his efforts to establish Impact Record Pool as the paradigm for club dj’s in southern California.

    He mentored to those that were serious about their craft; many went on to attain regional and even national acclaim for their expertise at getting the music to audience … and getting the audience to the dance floor. He was in every sense of the term “a music junkie”, yet a true professional in every facet of his business. Indeed, he was a model for the new generation of music messengers.

    On the personal side, you simply couldn’t have a more loyal, trustworthy, attentive friend. He was fun loving, but had a certain discipline that would draw on his serious side when necessary. He was a well balanced brother who was, for the most part, “on the good fut”… in some part, due to the Father of Soul, James Brown.
