Something to warm you up in this cold dark time:

An hour of sweet, heavy lovers rock.

Plus vast quantities of tape echo and distortion.

Fabulous selection from John as usual. I just did FX, edits and mastering. Amazing introduction to Lovers Rock, if you haven’t experienced really good lovers, this is the mix you need, reckon this might change a few minds!

I did the soundtrack to a fab short film and it’s now online

Shaun Bloodworth is a well known and excellent photographer who is best known in music circles for his portrait work for Rinse. Those amazing pictures of people like Geeneus, Chef, Skream etc? They’re by Shaun. He did the Margins Music album cover too. So he’s a badman basically. Plus, for this year’s Sonar, Mary Anne Hobbs commissioned Shaun to make a film to act as a backdrop for the artists performing on her stage. This took things to another level, with Shaun using the video function on his stills camera to shoot video of raves in Sheffield, as well as filming video portraits of particular ravers.

The film turned out great.

And then he wanted to have it out there with a soundtrack – and got a slot to premiere it, at prestigious Sheffield art cinema the Showroom. He had someone else lined up to do the soundtrack, but they couldn’t do it, so a week last Wednesday Shaun asked if I could do it.

By midnight that night, I’d delivered. And Wednesday this week, we went to the premiere!

That was an amazing night, with Mark from Wall of Sound and 6Music doing a speech on how amazing Sheffield is for inspirational music, and various art figures and Council big wigs in attendence. Best of all, Martin Ware from the Human League and Heaven 17 was there talking about the great new film about Heaven 17 that also premiered. It was cool!

And now, Shaun’s film is online. Titled Minds Locked Together, it’s a portrait of Sheffield clubbing, putting the crowd to the forefront. There are various DJs and MCs in the film, most importantly and amusingly the mighty Rodigan, but it’s really all about the people. It’s scenius in action.

My sound track starts off with jungle, including the title track, before sliding down into house, funky and sort-of-dubstep. It went off on the big system in the Showroom and I’m really pleased with the way the whole thing comes together.

You can see it here.

Please blog this, write about it etc, it’s really worth supporting!

Playing in Manchester Friday 11th!

I am playing in Manchester on Friday 11th at Band on the Wall.

The line up is AMAZING!

Dusk and Blackdown playing Margin’s Music live – I remixed the album, got them into Ableton, now they’re playing it out! But with a massive twist – they’ve got a whole live band too, including Farah. AAAAAAAANNDD… their show is featuring Durrty Goodz!!!! Being on the same line up as Durrty Goodz is an ambition fulfilled 🙂

But that’s not all… there’s United Vibes (LHF Vibzin), Scratcha DVA, AND Starkey, who is absolutely fantastic live! I’m so glad to be playing with him again. He’s electrifying!

Dunno when I’m on – probably fairly low down the bill given how big the names are – but it’s going to be a massive night!

£10 to get in. 9.30 kick off. Tickets on sale now from here.
