Live at Apollo Arcade Mix, Vinyl Only (11th March, 2017)

Here is my set from Apollo Arcade at Secret Garden Bar in Enmore, from a few weeks back. This was an incredibly enjoyable set, and a wonderful opportunity to play a complete, two-hour, vinyl only set!

I’ve just managed to compile the tracklisting for this one — which you’ll appreciate takes a little longer for such a set! — and, for what it’s worth, I generally try and buy vinyl-only releases, too, so there might be some gems in here that might not otherwise be available.

Big love and many thanks to Matty Connor for the booking, the beers and the chats!

Hope you enjoy this one!

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.

Live at S*A*S*H Mix (4th December, 2016)

Here is the recording from my recent set at S*A*S*H, closing The Den in the early hours of Monday morning!

Massive shouts to the super-receptive crowd who danced right throughout — many of whom very likely kicking on from the ‘Tell No Tales’ festival from earlier in the day!

I was able to play a wide range of tunes that are currently floating my boat: from my current Attic-style cuts, some disco-infused house, concluding on more of a drum-driven tip.

With that, special thanks must be paid to the S*A*S*H crew — particular Cris — for the booking consideration (and indeed, trust), once again. And certainly not to forget George (Mesan) who played an outstanding, warm set to open up the room and attract a “proper Den crowd”.

Really hope you like this one! Until next time…
