Yesterday saw the release of the first remix package of 'At Home', the latest single from Crystal Fighters released by Different Recordings / PIAS including a remix from myself! Big thanks to James Hoste and all at PIAS for their support and for the opportunity.
You can check out my effort here and pick up the whole release at Beatport
If you're in the London area this weekend I will be providing support all night for an Italians Do It Better special at Community at Plan B, Brixton. Live performances will come from Glass Candy and Appaloosa, after which I will be providing the soundtrack all the way til 4am. Its gonna be a great show and a rare chance to catch this seminal American label in action! Tickets here
Time for an update... Enzo Ponzio's 'Reworks' drops on the 25th on Pizzico including the Discodromo remix of 'Italian Boy' and my reworking of 'My 80's Funk'! I've been a huge fan of the label for some time now, and its a real pleasure to be able to get involved with them, not to mention return the favour to Enzo (if you haven't already, check out his awesome drum-machine heavy remix of 'Skycaptain' off the 'Ochre EP'). I'm currently working on some original tracks for the label too so watch this space...

For those of you in London this weekend, I'll be playing at Dalston's The Nest on Friday night, warming things up for none other than In Flagranti (Codek / Mindless Boogie)... I have yet to see them play so I'm really looking forward to it. Then on Saturday night I'm at Bad Dimension at The Horatia on Holloway Road, sharing the bill with the incredible Brassica (Dissident / Nocturnes), which will be a real treat for the ears! And on the topic of Bad Dimension, the team behind the night have asked me to join them on New Year's Eve when they host room 3 of The Horse & Groom in Shoreditch for Lasermagnetic's NYE Spectacular featuring the legend that is Ray Mang... its gonna be a big night!
Oh, if you missed my mix + mini-interview over at The Number 20 you can check it here! A big thanks again to them for their support, be sure to check their blog for more mixes, interviews and fine selections. And on that note, I'll leave you with this.
Wow, it's been quite a busy few months... plenty of exciting news to report!
My debut EP of original tracks drops on the 30th exclusively at JunoDownload. It's called 'Ochre EP' and is being put out on the fantastic Rainbow Socks label, based in Brazil. Included are two original tracks alongside a couple top class remixes courtesy of Enzo Ponzio (Solardisco/Pizzico Nobel) and Tiago (Hands of Time/Ene/Italians Do It Better). Here's some of the promo feedback so far....
Attention all those in London this weekend.... I wanted to make some noise about a new monthly night starting up this Saturday at The Horatia on Holloway Road. It's called Bad Dimension, and promises to be a full on cosmic psyche-out with live performances from bands as well as DJs delivering a heady blend of dubbed-out disco, 60s psychedelia and plenty more. For the opening night guests The Oscillation take to the stage, backed up by a fantastic kaleidoscopic light show by photographic artist Julian Hand. The night goes on until 2am and entry is free!
For a taste of whats in store check out some of the selections on their blog.

Last minute bit of promo for my set at Orlando Boom this Saturday at The Queen of Hoxton. They've managed to bag Riton for the headline slot, along with a whole host of other guests - it's gonna be a big one!
On a separate note, my remix of Sheharzad's 'Yalla Yalla' was dropped earlier this week on none other than Aeroplane's latest monthly chart mix! Check it out here!
Jens Loden's 'Worx' artist compilation comes out this coming Monday on Fine Art, including original tracks from Jens both under his own name and his Sheharzad project, plus remixes from the likes of Orlando Voorn and Henrik Schwarz. Also included is my remix of Sheharzad's 'Yalla Yalla'. I had the good fortune of winning a remix competition for the track run by Fine Art Recordings / Save Vinyl's Nitzan Hermon last summer, and I'm really pleased to finally be able to announce its release. After hearing the beautifully crafted stems I couldn't resist having a shot! A big thanks to Jens Loden and of course to Fine Art for their support!
The remix will also be released as a digital single alongside the compilation on Monday. Check it out!
