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.

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.

Mostly Weddings…

I missed out a post on Secret Garden Party to avoid what proved to be a perfectly amazing weekend being reduced to a rant I had brewing about sound men not respecting DJs as proper acts.  In fact I can … Continue reading
