Recently I’ve been digging for African and Afro-influenced music for the ART + MUSIC event: Jungle Fever. On Friday 22nd of March, I’ll be DJing alongside Nick Hadfield and Iñigo Ugarteburu – expect to hear some interesting stuff from Afrobeat by Ebo Taylor to Nigerian Disco by Amas. You’ll also see the wonderful art of Lynnie Zulu on display!
Entry is free of charge, please RSVP to: info(at)somethingintheattic.co.uk.
On Thursday 7th February, I’ll be playing a live set with Nicholas Feel at Roxx – a new concept bar in Notting Hill. Expect to hear something a little bit different as we take over the 1210′s.
Entry is free, please RSVP to: info(at)deuxspin.com
An unlikely mix of records I found in my collection: a film score, some blues, psychedelic rock and rare groove. These sounds have been a source of influence to me: discovering an old obscurity is a reminder that we don’t have to search for the latest release to find something good. A couple of these tracks were sampled by J Dilla in his 2006 album Donuts, whilst others although recorded in the 1970′s only recently got released. I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I did finding them.
1. Martial Solal – New York Herald Tribune (A Bout de Souffle)
2. Nina Simone – I Want A Little Sugar In My Bowl
3. Donnie & Joe Emerson – Baby
4. Lindisfarne – Sweet Lady Magic (Sad Ghost Edit)
5. Batteaux – High Tide
6. The Cyrkle – The Visit (She Was Here)
7. Shuggie Otis – Not Available
8. Newban – Easin’ Through
9. James Mason – Sweet Power Your Embrace (Unreleased Mix)
I’ll be playing a Hip-Hop influenced set at the Wyld Bar, W London on Thursday 6th of December from 10pm until 3am. Expect to hear some classics as well as some gems I’ve dug up over the years. Entry is free of charge, please RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Over the last year I’ve had many requests for the older records I play: soul, disco & boogie. Perhaps because they are the foundation for much of what is being produced today, and we like to hear the revival of vintage. However I like to think that it’s because these records have no attitude, there is something pure and uplifting about them; and most importantly they have stood the test of time.

Bonita Bay is your soundtrack to long summer days, cocktails at the beach and a warm breeze. Its a place where melancholy sounds are suppressed by day dreams and waves splashing over white sand.
