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.

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.

Nachos and Nostalgia

Although I have a bit of a love / hate relationship with Vinyl and often love winding up purists (this goes for any kind of purist though), it was really good to go to an all vinyl Hip-hop night yesterday, … Continue reading
