I’m so unbelievably stoked to be part of the huge Funk The World mix series put together by Fort Knox Five & Fort Knox Recordings, which showcases some of the finest funk based music from a across the planet. I put together a mix that features some of my all time funk favourites, some of my favourites from Grits N Gravy & a selection of my finest funky tracks.
In the first week of the mix being up on Mixcloud it cracked #1 on the Glitch Hop chart, #2 on the Breaks chart & #8 on the Funk chart!

A little while back I put out Blissed Out Beats the first in a series of more chilled mixes. Since then I’ve been playing & collecting loads more of this laid back style & thought it was about time for the second in the series. This one’s a little more jazz & soul inspired. It was also mixed live at a bar here in Sydney, Australia. So slip it on & let the warm sounds wash over your airwaves…

I was playing the original house version of this amazing track ‘Brazil’ by Pirate Jams, which was released on Australian based label Klub Kids last year. I was thinking it would be great if there was a breaks version so I hit up Kid Kenobi (who runs Klub Kids) & asked if I could put one together & here it is! I virtually re-made the whole track, added extra synth/bass but tried to keep the old stool vibe of the original. Hope ya dig…

I’m super stoked to be heading back to Hobart in Tasmania to play at Secret Sounds Of The Underground 7th party alongside house music legend Anthony Pappa! I’ll be headlining The Beat Down room alongside local talent DJ Thensum, Dazema & MC Wombat, DJ Pressed & Rola. The big man Anthony Pappa will be holding down the Secret Sounds Of The Underground room & Organic Mechanics will be hosting the Psy Room.
It’s a secret party with the venue being announced on the day which makes it even more exciting!
It’s been a few years since I last played in Hobart so I’m really looking forward to heading down to the very southern part of Australia again.

Here’s another low slung house number/Nu disco number that I put together & release as Doug Masters, the alias I use for my more house orientated stuff. This one’s a deep & groovy tune that takes on an old disco jam that was also sampled by a couple of french artists a few years ago (those that know, will know). I made it a little more stripped back & synth driven but kept the same vocal elements that made the tune such a anthem in the 2000’s. It’s a free download so help yourself & enjoy…

Over the past couple of months I’ve been stirring up a little disco brew. 3 of those tunes have joined forces to make my ‘Night Disco Vol 1 EP’ the first of a new series‘Night Disco Vol 1 EP’ the first of a new series of crafty nu disco jams that will be release on Grits N Gravy…
I’m really happy with how this EP’s sounding & with the cool/funky nu disco direction reflecting a lot of my DJ sets recently. These 3 tunes really spread across the genre from loopy & edit heavy (I Got The High), to funky & filtered (Everybody Loves A Filter) to a little deeper & electronic (Definition).

I’m super happy to be making my debut at Shindig Weekender Festival in UK over the weekend of 25/26/27th May ’18. I’ve not played at a UK festival for a few years, the last one was Glade Festival in 2012, so it’s been a while between drinks! I also grew up in the west country of UK so this is close to ‘home’.
I’ll be playing on my good friend Father Funk‘s Church Of Love stage that looks & sound like a super fun time!
