Legendary & Timeless – Anjunadeep 11 Live @ Printworks

I wanted to immortalise this brilliant DJ set. It’s so much more than a set actually. It’s a lush, deep landscape of music that is so perfectly crafted together, and what’s more-so is that it was performed live as surely one of the last great live electronic dance music events before lockdown. For me it […]

How lovely to look forward to Crazy P returning to Brighton to play a full live set later this month. Their new album has only just be unveiled but it is available to stream as of today via Soundcloud, and below. Enjoy. We love the Crazy P and this new one is just as good […]

Submotion Orchestra – a study in bass & production

Formed in Leeds in 2009 the Submotion Orchestra are touching the zeitgeist with their dynamic frequencies and crisp production. Their sound has been heralded by younger dance fans and ageing beard-stroking musos alike. Influences span the decades, from jazz, to soul, ambient, dubstep, electronica and house but are all nailed firmly to the ground with some […]

In2Deep – a deep house mix tape

I’m proud to say that I used to be DJ Tim The Groovedigger and from about ’91 to ’98 used to have residencies and run club nights playing all manner of dance music. My favourite spell was running a regular Brighton night In2Deep which I brought down with me from Oxford (where we had a […]

Drum and Bass – Lost in Space & Divaz n Bass

Still love this old late nineties drum and bass mix tape of mine which is now up on Youtube. For me this was a golden era of drum and bass, after all the ragga and attitude of the dying rave scene had petered out and a new era was heralded by the likes of LTJ […]

Radio Ink – Who We Are Tonight (Rogue Vogue Remix)

Every now and then a really great house tune comes along and knocks your socks off. For an old timer like me the track has to have a heavy does of house-history, and this great remix of a an Australian Electro Pop band tune has just that.

Hendrix Reads Aldiss

How about this gem of a photo that @penguinbookaday tweeted recently. OK so technically Jimi Hendrix isn’t actually reading dad’s work (his name is on the cover as the editor), but I am still impressed with this roundabout claim to fame. Hendrix was an SF fan, he has also been quoted as enjoying dad’s work, but the […]
