Don Cotti x Terror Danjah – Bun War

Shout outs to Nice Up! for dropping this monstrous collaboration between Terror Danjah and Cotti that very much reflects both their styles, fusing Grime, Dubstep and Dancehall with a twist. Have to agree with the sentiments also. I will be … Continue reading

LA Priest – Lady’s In Trouble With The Law

So last weekend I hit Festival No. 6 for Matt The Hat‘s Stag Do and our first Big Swing Sound Kids Show. You might think the two should never be combined but actually both went off rather spectacularly and no … Continue reading

Into The Lion’s Den

Loved playing on the new Reggae Roots stage at Bestival this year! As I mentioned previously, my first ever DJ set at a festival was Reggae 7″s at the original 2004 Bestival. However it made me realise I probably shouldn’t … Continue reading

Big Love Is In The Air

Big Love Is In The Air

Had an amazing time playing at the Wedding Disco in Camp Bestival and Bestival this year. Never thought I’d enjoy rinsing out the cheese again so much but every set was a winner. Although we went from 70s Disco, all around the 80s, into 90s RnB, Hip-hop + Dance Classics and generally finishing on some classic Power Ballads, our first official mix for Bestival’s ‘Bestimix’ series is strictly on the 80s Soul and Disco tip, it includes a couple of less obvious Weddingish classics such as ‘Can’t Wait Another Minute’ and ‘Alphabet Street’ (rather than Kiss or 1999) as they’re great tunes but we couldn’t think of any other mixes we’d actually get away with them in.

Definitely not meant too seriously, though I defy the hardiest of music snobs not to have a bit of a sly boogie to this whilst nobody’s looking 🙂

I shall also be doing a Wedding Crashers set at My Big Fat Dalston Wedding in Dalston Superstore on Saturday 17th November, hosted by my good friend Dave The Unicorn, so pop down if you’re in town.
