Live at Attic Launch Night featuring Fouk!

Well, what a truly magical night that was! We’re truly pleased to have brought you our first — of hopefully, many — Attic events and will reflect on this one with big smiles for a long, long time!

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported us — there were positive vibes right throughout the place from start-to-finish, and everyone in attendance was incredibly complimentary.

To see a project we’ve envisioned and carefully-crafted over some time — whilst throwing our blood and sweat into it in the process! — turn into something so wonderful leaves us with an enormous sense of satisfaction.

Fittingly, everyone brought their ‘A’ game musically:

To the Rabbit : mate, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. You’re a true gentleman of the scene. The opening set of any given night can present a tricky scenario and is absolutely critical, but you nailed it — even from the first sample, “No, I’m just some kind of sick idiot who’s seen too many young men die…” Just superb!

To Hans and Daniel (Fouk​): Well, what can we say?! Everyone who witnessed the almost three-hour journey can attest that they were present for something very, very special, indeed.

As well as being talented producers, it’s refreshing to know that you’re seasoned and highly-accomplished technicians behind the 1′s and 2′s. You took our guests on a melodic journey and they remained with you for the long haul and danced the night away.

A special thanks also to Doris​, Maria​ and Mike for your contributions and assistance throughout the night. This is very much a family affair, and we couldn’t have done it without you. A special mention to Andreas​, too!

We’ll also have some photos, video and music from the night coming very shortly, too, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

So, with that, here is my recorded set from the evening. I played after Rabbit Taxi and right before Fouk. The crowd response was exceptional, and seeing it all build up in anticipation four our headline act was highly satisfying!

We’ll be back at it again very soon, so stay tuned for further announcements and dates! ;)

Thanks again, everyone. It’s been our absolute pleasure.

Chymera – ‘Fathoms’ (Brendan Clay & Ryan White ‘Botox The Beats’ Remix)

This remix was submitted for a Juno.co.uk remix competition, and was completed over the course of a Winter Saturday afternoon by Ryan White and yours truly.

We believe that this effort rings quite true to the original tune – which is a fabulous piece of music in its own right – and is one that we enjoyed putting together.

As always, comments and feedback are appreciated.

There is every chance that we’ll upload another version, if adjustments are made.

Hope you like it!

Eric Mould – ‘Paradigm Shift’ Mixtape – AVAILABLE NOW!

Eric Mould - Paradigm Shift Mixtape

It gives me great pleasure to advise that my mixtape for Eric Mould’s ‘Paradigm Shift’ – on Revision Records – is now available on Beatport.

The project was offered to me around two years ago – by Eric Mould – who was in process of creating the album, at the time. He’d heard one his tunes, ‘Vivid Beats’, in a mix of mine on our radio show, ‘The M Shift’, and liked the way that his tune was played. He made contact shortly after, and here we are!

Eric’s album is a tasteful concoction of dubstep, breaks and drum ‘n’ bass, complete with attention-to-detail and complex production.

The mix was not without its challenges in certain areas, particularly when it came to significant tempo changes, whilst still trying to keep a “fluid” sound in the mix. Overall, though, I think it translates as an enjoyable listen, and is a tribute to the quality production, on the album.

You can have a listen to it on Soundcloud, right here:

And you can buy the mix – and / or the original album – at Beatport right here:
