Interviews with emerging and established producer/DJ stars…

Carrot Green & Selvagem ‘Ossain’

As Heads Down has been out of commission for the last 4 years (!) I feel that’s it’s not too out of order to have a little retrospective on some of the tunes that during the last couple of years have turned out to be weapons-grade club destroyers of a more underground nature. One of […]

9th House ‘Keeping Me Up’

This vinyl-only gem from W&O Street Tracks has been made to satiate Nu Groove loving ‘real’ house evangelists, the kind who sign off their text messages with ‘Keep On’ and cry every time a Braxton Holmes 12″ is bootlegged. Still, what’s wrong with that, eh? It samples Maxwell (yes yes, hear me out) but you […]

Roisin Murphy ‘Incapable’

It seems I am officially a Roisin Murphy super fan. I’m not sure when this happened. The shrine I’ve built in my attic next to my Morgan Geist place of worship (which is starting to look a bit dusty tbh) is looking very nice! Some shreds of a Comme Des Garcons dress she wore on […]

Goldie Interview

Goldie – Interview // AllSaints Basement Session from AllSaints on Vimeo. Not a man who particularly requires an introduction… I got to sit down with the legendary artist, producer, actor and all-round national treasure for much of a morning, and the resulting interview is a cracker. I think he really enjoyed nerding out about production […]

Richie Culver Interview

Richie Culver Interview // Allsaints Basement Sessions from AllSaints on Vimeo. Please excuse the long absence from the blog, my wife and I have just had a beautiful, bouncing, disco-loving baby (seriously). If I neglected my child like I neglect my blog I would’ve been carted off by the authorities weeks ago. Anyhoo, here’s my […]

Ashley Beedle Interview

Ashley Beedle is one of the principle reasons I got into dance music. Fact. My first real dancefloor epiphany was soundtracked by ‘Blacker’ by the Ballistic Brothers; that Herbie Hancock fuelled bassline swept me away from my Premier, Pete Rock and Large Pro fixations and dropped me squarely into the more esoteric world of London’s […]

Massimiliano Pagliara Interview

Massimiliano Pagliara interview – AllSaints Basement Sessions from AllSaints on Vimeo. Massimiliano Pagliara is without a doubt one of my favourite new producers of the last few years. Immaculate analog-soaked production chops matched to a very musical take on modern disco: it’s an approach that resonates strongly with me. His ‘Focus For Infinity’ debut LP […]

Howard Marks Interview

This international drug smuggling counterculture icon needs no introduction (what twenty-something didn’t read Mr Nice in the last fifteen years?). I interviewed the man recently for the Basement Sessions, and he was an absolute gem: as charming as you’d expect, as intelligent and quick-witted as a man would have to be to evade the law […]

Martyn Interview

DJ Martyn Interview – AllSaints Basement Sessions from AllSaints on Vimeo. Dubstep has had some interesting permutations over the last year or three: it’s become the sonic underbelly for so much of pop music, spawned some truly awful adolescent chest-bumping and morphed into some wonderful bass-led dancefloor business from people as varied as Shackleton and […]

Steffi Interview

Steffi interview – AllSaints Basement Sessions from AllSaints Spitalfields on Vimeo. Ah Steffi. As much as she balked slightly at me calling her one of Europe’s “queens of house” (pretty cheesy on my part, but there you go), that’s very much what this Dutch, Berlin-residing DJ and producer is. Coming to prominence in the last […]
