After the festival which you can see below, I will be djing and, hopefully, vjing at the after party. Then in a little while I will also be performing at my old stomping ground for Rite Trax – the Corporation! As always these events are a real rainbow of activity – art, poetry, live music, dj performance, vj performance – so much, and they attract such a range of people.

There is a particular quality about autumn, its beginnings. As days grow a little shorter but there is still a hint of warmth, or at least an absence of real cold. We have gone beyond wild picnics and summer jaunts. There is something of a new beginning taking place, work or study comes to the fore and personally I have the urge to slip into particular bars, run through certain sorts of music and spend evenings in a way that is …
But there is also the sky and the neighbourhood just as the sun sets, strange colourations of things. Musical in its own right. You can find an entertaining or intriguing texture almost anywhere.
These mixes have been put up in preparation for a couple of projects that are upcoming – one is in aid of a charity project for kids and others in Malawi – so keep eyes and ears and, of course, wallets open …

I really like my moody evenings and skies as you might have guessed. I tend to like certain sorts of music that goes with all such. Given my age it might be a little odd for people – I love my chillstep, deep dubstep but then I also love my older balearic chill, deep house and the like.
Mentioned here are a couple of artists that I really have some time for – Soular Order, a Manchester based producer and also Christian Hornbostel. The two are very different but still they have the capacity to add to particular moments and moods. You can find some of the photos from our group on Sellfy –
There is nothing quite like the right music fitting how mood and emotion is running, in the right place – perhaps a suitably aged and distressed area at the back of a personable pub.

As you may have guessed I have something of an eclectic taste in music. Particular forms of music fit with various of my moods – and no I am not just endlessly moody! I do, however, run through a whole gamut of feelings in the average day and so sucha typical day can be filled variously with anything from deep, soulful and chilled house
– I also have a love of old soul from early 60s days through to new soul – nusoul, neo soul – by way of 80s and 90s sounds
– on into moody trip hop – I retain a real love of all sorts of artists from Portishead to London Grammar by way of Bonobo and the list would go on endlessly
– and then to drum and bass, which would include the full range of old jungle, raggaed up or not, and including liquid, atmospheric and intelligent – so my tastes go from Congo Natty to Bukem, from Marcus Visionary to Calibre

As you will know I have quite a liking for the chilled end of things – always gravitating towards the chillout room in any party. I have always had as well a real love of deep house – admittedly that love is generally for the older originators – St Germain (Ludovic Navarre), Ian Pooley, Mateo and Matos, Kevin Yost. I so look back to days in parties involving DIY, Inland Knights and others.
The mixes you can find here hopefully give you a sense of that mmmm! that is part of the whole scene and the whole history of that area of music.
left right left right
slowly with purpose
into gently honest sincerity
plain and to the point
yes that hand points away
march not with a legion
but as a true plebeian
it is easy to drift
just a drift of cloud to point
