Congrats to the 6 DJ finalists heading over to Sun and Bass this year. Looking forward to lounging with the lucky loosers drowning their sorrows to all the sets in the glamourous surroundings of Bal Harbour, roll on the Sardinian spirit measures
Jeff Leach stopped asking me out for dinner about a year ago, we first met in 2007, im so glad he finally got the message ;) Its not that i dont find him ridiculously attractive or his hip-hop speak when addressing me amusing, my polite refusals were more to do with the fact that he is just not boyfriend material…see above and be prepared Edinburgh he’s coming…for your women! (more…)
Happy happy joy joy,the first half of the line up for sun and bass 2012 is online! In answer to your questions over the past few months will i be there this year…well you’ll just have to click on the pic to find out (more…)

Never been to Poland in my life then over the last month, thanks to DJ Ros, i’ve been twice, not that i really remember much of the last trip. Sunny Sopot the second time round was lost in a haze of boarders and hooch. Not a vodka drinker but a drinker all the same i simply carried on knocking back the little shots of Bettys homemade lemon vodka at our pre-gig party, its bitter sweetness enough to mask just how potent these babies actually were….the last thing i remember was smoking on the balcony a few hours before the gig, then im face down in my hotel room with the sun blazing through my shutters and wondering if the building across the street looked that way yesterday…
Been trawling through the internet today feasting my ears on Submotion Orchestra after catching them live last night at Vagabondz in Leeds. Truely awesome sound, amazing players, beautiful singer…i dont care if im late im just glad i found them Check em out for yourself at Outlook this year amongst loads of other places, i suggest if you havent go do it now…or as soon as possible
Twas my first time in Romania last weekend alongside Kabuki for the TM10 Base Festival in Timisoara, met some great people, extremely kind and a lot of fun thanks to all that got us over there for the show
Now Im not trying to be ignorant at all (i was made to choose between history & geography in high school and saw myself as a historian rather than a traveller back then) but until looking in the back of the inflight magazine on my way to Romania i actually had no idea where i was going. In fact to sound completely ignorant the most i knew about this distance and quite romantic sounding land of Romania was that Dracula had once lived there…if you believe all you read or see in Hollywood epics you’ll also find the grounds of Highgate, Hampstead and Whitby quite hallowed however here i was en route to Transylvania…ok ok i know stupid it was Timisoara and i knew this shallow teenage vampire fantasy of mine was based on tired media steroetypes and so i was on my best behaviour on leaving the airplane and tried my very best not see Dracula references EVERYWHERE…..
60,000 people, 400 acts in just one day. The Belgians don’t do things by half! Laundry Day at the beginning of September was the perfect way to kick off a month of adventures, all thanks to the terrific two Murdock & Netsky for getting me over there again, was a pleasure and always a joy!
It was a week and a day ago that i left the lovely island of Sardinia, the end to my Sun and Bass bliss. many a thing has happened since then, many fun and wonderful things in fact but its only now, today that im finally shaking my S&B hangover. Back to work i must go, i am not on holiday any longer…oh but for that wonderful week that we all were…big thanks as always to Stefano and crew for the stella shenanigans and gracious hosting, all bar staff and security at Ambra Day, Night and down the beach, you kept us all liquored up nicely
No no no not dirty washing, please put ya knickers away, im talking about the festival in Belguim, cant wait to get over there on Saturday to wail over Netsky’s set in his home town, if past events are anything to go by its gonna be crazy and the perfect way to kick off the month of September adventures Flying into Sardinia on Sunday for the mighty mighty sun and bass and after a week of that im off to Berlin til Nov! Playing around Germany so keep an eye out for when and where right here….in the meantime if your in Belguim, Antwerp tomorrow make sure you reach Laundry Day for some of this….
Its rained all day in Manchester, ALL BLOODY DAY! Summer is well and truely over people, but instead of weeping and getting those tears mixed up in the rain let this mix of warm audio melt through your speakers courtesy of Mike:L one of the entrants to S&B ‘s DJ comp…the winner is announced this weekend, good luck ya’ll!
Im thinking this year theres gonna be alot of sick house parties in San Teodoro this September judging by some of these DJ mixes from festival goers hoping to win a set at this years Sun & Bass. Theres enough entries to give me a daily fix until the off lets hope there all as good as this from EdanUK, i can almost feel the sun coming through my speakers on this selection perfect for getting reayd after a day at the beach
Wow time is flying like mythical pigs round here and the official end to my summer is drawing closer and closer, Sun & Bass 2010! Im so excited that i’d thought i’d remind myself of whats in store by watching this short film from last years festivities hosted by Bailey! If you haven’t got your ticket yet and are still in need of a festival fix, it aint to late to get your sh*t together and go, see you on the beach bee-yatches!
Spent last night with the Riot Jazz lads watching them organize their uber experience at this years Kendal Calling , in between watching them work and eating pizza they showed me some funny ass videos…this is the first
The (locally controversial) Manchester festival was much fun this weekend, i was residing for most of Saturday behind the Ape tent soaking up the sun, hanging with Chunky n crew and trying out Ustreams Iphone app that allows you to broadcast live on the interweb to your Ustream Channel from your IPhone . Now it kind of worked and it kind of didn’t for a number of reasons, one major flaw 02‘s Iphone network being quite shabby on the day (quelle surpirse!) another being my newbie set up of the app and my channel on the site itself. Also the ever flowing stream of fizzy booze didnt help but i did get few things on video, however alot of stuff i recorded using the ustream app and saved went missing….not a good look and i should of just recorded via IPhone cam…lesson learned anyways here for your viewing pleasure is a little sample of the salvaged footage from a day in the life at the park!
If you’ve missed me and my random self centered blogging let me first apologise for my absence it wasnt my fault i blame all the djs mentioned in this post. If you havent missed me then what the hell you reading this for? SHOOO! Anyways got a little hectic after last weeks bank holiday, feels like im still catching up with myself after a week of late nights north and south!
They were playing in Manchester today as part of the Eurocultured festival, im truely gutted! However still lots of fun stuff to catch, off there now maybe see ya down there in ya in town
LMFAO Holy Moly posted this quite amusing video this week, i can honestly say i’ve never been that drunk….ew ew ew ew ew!
Oh and is it true Alex Chung & Josh Harnett?…again ew ew ew ew ew!
Last Saturday i was in London via Reading performing with The Engine-Earz at the Queen Elizabeth Hall as part of the amazing Raj:Reload. The gig absolutely smashed it with the seated venue turning into what can only be called the Queen Elizabeth Dance Hall once E=E was on stage, lol, alot of fun had by all in attendance on the Southbank for some truely inspiring performances. The party carried on until the wee hours of the morning and the lovely Levant/sequester captured some classic moments from backstage and beyond, simply a dope weekend.
Thats right you carvers of wasted flesh, if a Pumpkin was a puppy would you have gutted it so carelessly for one night of visual pleasure and then be throwing it on the bonfire later? I think not therefore behold the wondrous vegetable that is the mighty Pumpkin/Squash and fall in love with its many guises…. (more…)
