Once again I’m stoked to be making my way across the Pacific Ocean to the beautiful country of Canada to play at one of my favourite festivals Motion Notion!
Danio Management artists are out in full effect with Fort Knox Five, Stickybuds, Slynk, JPod, K+Lab, Wood N Soo & Qdup all also playing. This year the festival has moved to a new site in Merritt (BC) so I’m excited to see what the new venues brings & check out a part of Canada I’ve not been to before.

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!
For my next freebie of 2018 I’ve once again teamed up with That’s Not An Edit for Vol 7 of their great edit series, that features tunes by all Aussie producers.
My tune on the release is a cool little Nu Disco version of Eddie Harris’s ‘Alright Now’. I’m really feeling the Nu Disco / Slo Mo House vibes at the moment with a bunch more tunes in the pipe line. Also on the compilation are edits from Pecoe, Collide, Jr Dynamite, Timber, Meem, Mr Leigh, Frankee More, Rowan P, Caratgold, Mr Chombee, Henri le Blanc, DJ Soup, C Man, Slmdnk, Paris Groovescotter & Outliers. It’s a great & varied package that spans multiple genres & moods. Well worth checking them all out…

Recently I’ve been playing & making quite a lot of disco & house. I’ve always played this kind of music but have been more focussed on funk & breaks, especially for the production side of things. I put this sweet little tune together & played it out a few times where it sounded really good! So I thought I’d give it away as a freebie. If you like this fun, disco/nu disco sound then you’ll be please with what’s coming over the next few months…

If you’ve listened to my Motion Notion 2017 set or seen me play recently you may have heard this great little 2 step/breaks version of Storm Queen’s ‘Look Right Through’ I put together. It’s been going down really well & has been the highlight of my set on a number of occasions. I thought it was high time for a freebie, so here it is! ENJOY!

I was recently away on tour playing shows in both Canada & Ibiza. 2 highlights of the trip were the awesome Motion Notion Festival at the foot of the rocky mountains near Golden (BC) in Canada & In The Dark at Hi Ibiza (formerly Space).
At Motion Notion I played on the main stage on Friday night/Sat morning, 4.30-6am, right after fellow Danio Management artist & Canadian festival favourite Stickybuds. Even though it was late & pretty cold I had a big crowd for my set & it was so much fun to play to the bass loving people on the AMAZING new PK Sound gravity sound system, which I think may be the best I’ve ever played on! My set took in funk, glitch hop, breaks, bass, house, 2 step & jungle/DnB. Check it out…
Motion Notion Festival 2017:
In Ibiza it was a whole different experience. Returning to the club that used to be Space was a bit odd at first. Hi Ibiza has a different vibe in a similar setting even though they’ve extensively refurbished the venue. I played at the now infamous Wild Corner which is actually a room in the clubs main unisex toilets! It’s got a full DJ booth, dance floor & killer sound system. I joined my good friends & sometime production partner, Mr Doris for a 6 hour back to back set of disco & house. The room was packed all night & had such a great vibe! HERE’s a little video of me playing on the night. Check out what I played…
