In preparation for our Pure Phase set at the United Nations of Dub Weekender, we cut our whole set to dubplate at our studio. The video shows the disk cutting lathe cutting a record and the dubplates first play. Read the rest of this entry »
I found one of my DJ mixes on an old hard drive. Its a selection of Soul and Funk tracks that I was playing out back in 2007. Including tracks from Quantic Soul Orchestra, Mark Ronson Feat Alex Greenwald, Lack of Afro, Betty Harris, James Brown, Joe Cocker and others. New mixes coming soon!
The remix EP of my track The Healing Ft Ola Szmidt is available on download and limited edition 5″ lathe cut vinyl. The EP features an eclectic collection of remixes by Daidono, Si Tew, Envlope, Echo Locate and Adam Chetty.
The Healing and The Healing (Daidono Remix) are available on 5″ lathe cut vinyl, cut by myself on my own disc cutting lathe. The 5″ is packaged in a screen printed gatefold card sleeve, with CDR of the full remix EP, limited 200 copies. The release also includes immediate download of 7-track EP in your choice of MP3 320, FLAC, or Wav.
The Healing track is from the forthcoming from the album Transformation of the Mind due out in April 2013.
United Nations of Dub are presenting what must be the biggest Dub, Roots and Reggae festival the UK has ever seen. Many of the big UK Soundsystems are in attendance, along with live sets from reggae and dub legends. I will be playing a dubplate set as Pure Phase at some point during the weekend.
I will be performing tracks from my album Transformation of The Mind at the Crumblin Cookie in Leicester in December. I will be cutting the instrumental stems of my tracks to vinyl at my studio Tracks to Wax and remixing the album using three turntables, with live vocals from Ola Szmidt. Both Dave Dhonau and Ola from Muted Fnord feature heavily on my album, so it will be a pleasure to support them at this gig. The event will also feature a set from Poisk who has some interesting sounds coming from his bandcamp page.

The Biscuit Tin Sound System is on top form and recently hosted UK Dub legends Iration Steppas and Channel One in a sound clash at the Music Cafe in Leicester. On the 24th of November BTSS return to the Music Cafe for a clash with Wonkey Hifi. I will be representing BTSS with Hovis and Gra, playing some fresh dubplates.

I’ve posted a new mix on mixcloud, which is a selection of laid back tracks with some laid back presenting from me! Its a mixture of electronic music with ambient, dub and funk influences. Check the mix to hear my soon to be released track The Healing Ft Ola Szmidt along with a remix from Envelope. I also played tracks from my label mates and collaborators, Chin Chin and Pandacub Ft I-mitri, alongside music from DJ Shadow, Rhythm and Sound, Bonobo and Midaircondo among others. Full track list on Mixcloud.
I have started a network for DIY and open-source DJ tools, such as mixers, midi controllers and software. There are some really interesting projects being developed, but they are spread across the web. I’m hoping the Open DJ Tools website can serve as a hub for this community and provide an opportunity for people to collaborate on new projects. I will be using the site to blog about my own work with DJ equipment and share interesting projects I find during my research. I’m also looking forward to collaborating with other member of the network.
