Bristol is a party town for sure, only ever had one bad night there and that was cause someone spiked me with no-party juice, tut tut Mr i know your name! Eyes and hands firmly on my drinks since then i’v had the most fun performing and partying in ‘the bubble’ and a few weeks back was the first time i got to play for RUN @ Motion with my DJ Danny Wheeler. Foo Magazine was down there on the night the Mancs rolled in (Zed Bias & Tonn Piper also reppin on the bill!) and made this very funny video…im not drunk at all (more…)
Twitter mate @IamFordy asked the other day if i had any new music on the go that he hadn’t heard…me thinks he doesn’t read my blog, as of course i’ve been posting my studio sessions and releases as and when they’ve happened. Tut tut Fordy….i shouldn’t need to tell you that i have actually been working on a non dnb album since last September and hope to preview some finished tracks from those sessions at Catch 22 & Zed Bias very soon. In the meantime though heres whats out there right now…. (more…)

UPDATE 18.03.09 – Appreciation is looking like a September release on the one like Development, thank you MIke
A while back on me facebook i got a friend request from a dude asking about the lyrics to ‘Let me change your mind‘. The message was from a DJ whose girl pals were requesting it whenever he played and wanted to know what the hell the song Zed Bias and myself made was all about…now i don’t really like to divulge to much of the reasons behind my song lyrics but i don’t mind posting them up for those that wanna make up there own interpretation! (more…)
Another night/morning at the Biasonic Laboratory, another track written. Inspired by alot of Redbull, a dash of Glenns’ and some herbal persuasion…Show some appreciation was the title tonight, My Reason was yesterdays. Started both tracks with no idea of lyrical intent. Just playing with words and structure ideas, got a bit confusing yesterday as the hook wasnt making any sense with the verse…some people can deal with that, after all some people dont even listen to the lyrics. Not me, i need a sense closure or at least a storyline of some sorts…Any hoo i figured it out in the end, the middle 8/after chorus/counter melody whatever you wanna name it, thats where it makes sense. Reminded of the song ‘Let me change your mind’ out on Development Music at the moment. Me and Zed wrote that back in March, like today the verses came in minutes…but i hadnt really caught on to what i was trying to say. When the hook hit, it was like a sweet release of tension in my creative soul, so worth staying up til 6am 2 nights in a row…
‘If music be the food of love, play on’ – W. Shakespeare
Me and Zed came up with this a while back as part of a biasonic experiment. Classified – Rated PG, songs inspired by movies never made! As the summer slowly slips by, the sun causing chaos in our hearts and loins, i thought this particular track would be an appropriate soundtrack to those blissful musings over that lifeguard with the ponytail and the shell necklace…
Inspired by those American teen beach/holiday type movies, where coming of age through the highs and lows of love is the only moral and the locals are way fitter and deeper than the dorks at home (cause they surf waves not the net, innit!). Sunday afternoon tv ahoy!
