Art is …
sometimes a statement, an expression, a comment …
it can be grand and glorious or small, distressed, torn …
it can seem quite ordinary but because it has been placed in ‘a frame’ it has special meaning …
… sometimes the word itself is just a little too much because of all the baggage that can go with it, but then you find something, hear something and the ordinary, the odd moment suddenly has new and added meaning and depth …
a variety of odd backgrounds, environment textures and similar – a variety of formats – jpg, png,svg – something to add to any project, using all sorts of materials in a variety of palettes, extending

Take a look on facebook – we will return – there will also be a festival in Sheffield, Bole Hills a little later. I will be vjing as usual.
20th June was World Refugee Day so here are a few mixes of mine –
There were particular times spent in and around local pubs and certain clubs – pubs in Pitsmoor already mentioned such as the East House, the Tea Gardens, the Highway and more. In these days I djed and spent time just enjoying a few beers but also disappeared off to some club nights, events, parties and the like. These were also eclectic times, enjoying local things and a range of music:
– deep house, balearic beats
– soul, particularly northern (an old friend had been Dave Godin – check his history and you will see the connection)
– ska, being a Cov lad, of course
– the beginnings of a love for certain garage sounds, drum and bass and the like
I had an interesting time recently, sat, as I have occasional want to do so, in a pub with an old mate. We enjoyed a few drinks and a delightful chat , myself and Jethro, up at the Rutland.
We were both involved some time ago in events such as Spannered at the Earl, the other offshoot parties (the Must Dash parties) and all sorts of other shenanigans. It is a shame that all too many of the places with which we were involved have now disappeared but other places sometimes run through and other events appear.
Sat out back having a fag we were surrounded by what you will find below. It is nice to be surprised by such things. Their inclusion in such venues makes a difference.
I am hoping that I will get the chance to see more of my old friend quite soon and perhaps he will get the chance to perform at Rite Trax or a similar event in the near future.

Coming really soon, hopefully I will be doing the visuals again. I am having an absolute ball with these guys. I have djed and vjed for them – at Golden Harvest (soon to be closing down becauseof council re-development in the area) and at the Harley – an old stomping ground of mine. I have also provided them with a little promo work and mini-mixes for the radio show – see below. Very soon a guest mix of mine should be up on their mixcloud channel. I may also put up the Harley mix on my channel. Also thanks to them I vjed @ Garage Night 2 also at Golden Harvest. There may also be a load of work arising as a spin-off – that will be announced a little later.
The Rite Trax gigs are quite a thing – live poetry, art, even live art, live music, dj performance, my visuals and a mix of people that is spectacular. I have spoken so many languages at these gigs – it is untrue. These events are so special – get down. Also check out their show on Reform Radio.
