Song's Without Words

One of my favourite albums right now is Mike Monday's Songs Without Words. Its truly epic, the best electronic album ive heard in years. I urge you to buy this , its like a musical theme park, full of bubbles and bizarre distance zelda lands :)

BADDEST RUFFEST , BACKYARD DOG

I came across this video for Baddest Ruffest. Before i became a full time dj i worked as an assistant to a music video director, Dawn Shadforth, who was basically the best one around for a long time!! She made legendary videos for Kylie,jamaroquia, Goldfrapp and Bjork , all of which i had the privilege of working on. This video was shot in Brixton , a rare moment working on south london home turf, and it was such a laugh to do, i actually was the one who filmed the dog's perspective!!! Also one of the band members was in court and about to be sent down, the judge saw the video and let him of due to the fact he had a career in front of him!! Happy times...enjoy.

WORTHY!

DONT MISS

see ya later oz ... xx

Melbourne was fun at Revolver, the club that doesnt close its doors til monday. It really reminded me of the Panarama Bar in Berlin, lots of debauchery going on, the decor was really cool, and it was lovely to see some friends from London.

Sydney was big the next day, Action and Moulin ROuge gigs were great, shouts to Sarah Potplant and gang :)

The thing that most impressed me was the soundsystems, every venue had an amazing system, no matter how small it was. Makes me realize just how sloppy most venues in London are, sadly.

general messy behaviour continued , leading from the excellent party Lost Baggage. amazing techno music, and fierce mental crowd who were so much fun to party with.

So it was a real privilege to take Batty Bass to some amazing places, play on some killer sound systems, make some batties shake , eat some delicious food, and meet proper tiptop peeps.
big love to Wade, Tim, Simon, James, Sandwiches crew, Ben, Action, Revolver, Empire, and Petro n gang and all the party crew i met along the way xxxx

more pics can be seen in my facebook init!!!

tour continues

ive just arrived in melbourne, last night i played in Sandwiches CLub in New Zealand. This was my favourite gig so far, the club was small and intimate based on fabric, exposed brick, great lighting and the fabric soundsystem....KILLER. The crowd were totally into their music and i felt at home here. Big shouts to Aiden and the gurls x

here r some shots from my days off in Sydney, thurs wendy and i went to see Goldfrapp at the Sydney Opera House, which was just stunning.
