DJ Mixes from Christopher Tubbs and various extra-special guests…

Ashley Beedle at Caravan THIS Saturday

Ashley Beedle’s music has been a bit of a THING with me over the years. I can pinpoint so many moments when I first heard AB records: from Ballistic Brothers to Black Science Orchestra to his latest productions under his own name, they’ve all had a profound effect on me, seeing me through some of […]

Caravan ‘Enfant De La Nuit’ Mix

So here it is: mix numero duo for 2013. I don’t know what it is (or was) that proved such a melon-twisting distraction, but this mix took eons! Hopefully it’ll be worth it though, and subsequently give you all loads of sun-soaked pleasure over the (slow to burn) summer months and beyond (as the other […]

Caravan ‘Nouveau Départ’ Mix

Could it be? Is this a hallucination? Am I drunk? Nope, this is, unequivocally, the start of Spring. Bared flesh, people dressing inappropriately for ANY time of year… It’s all there. And subsequently that can only mean one thing: it’s time for the Heads Down Sessions to conjure the sunshine once again at Caravan Exmouth. […]

Caravan ‘Special Days Indeed’ Mix & final party

It had to end sooner or later I suppose. Not even the most repeatedly lobotomised optimist could call my Caravan night a ‘Summer’ session anymore. Still, it’s a hell of a shame (as I so adore doing it) and we have the long dark tunnel of winter to stumble through before I start talking to […]

Caravan ‘Une Nuit De Voyage’ Mix

I can’t believe we’ve come to the end of 2012’s titanically eventful summer, and subsequently ALMOST the Heads Down summer sessions at Caravan. Considering it’s a summer that won’t be particularly remembered for it’s Copacabana-esque weather, for some reason when it came to the sessions it was always sunny and warm. Praise the Balearic spirit! […]

Christopher Tubbs’ Caravan ‘Amour Et Lumiere’ Mix

God this took me ages to do. It’s not even as though it’s some uber-dexterous feat of turntablism or anything, it just wasn’t feeling right. Today though, with all the windows in the house open, the geese taking shelter from the blistering sun under the footbridge outside and the occasional light caress of a cool […]

Caravan ‘Heat Of The Night’ Mix

Well, I’m three nights deep in the Caravan Heads Down sessions for 2012, and it’s been ridiculously good fun so far. Aside from getting told off by my wife for (literally) rolling in too late and being completely incapacitated for the rest of the weekend, everything’s been totally peachy. It must be said, it’s hard […]

Caravan Le Fin Du Fin Mix

Well, here it is folks: my last Caravan mix of the year. I’ve so loved my second year doing the Saturday night summer Heads Down Sessions at Caravan in Exmouth Market; it’s been amazing to me just how many of you lovely people have actually come down to support- THANKYOU. I went quite housetastic in […]

Caravan ‘Indian Summer’ Mix

Woah, heatwave! Yup that’s right, for all you readers who aren’t UK-based and look upon our ‘summers’ with wry amusement, you can stick it- because we’ve got a heatwave! Right here in blighty! Inevitably by the time you actually read this it’ll all be over and I’ll be tipping my flat upside down looking for […]

Summer Solstice Mix for Caravan

If you follow my loquacious warbling on Twitter (@CMJCT), you’ll know that I take Heads Down live every Saturday to Caravan at Exmouth Market in London. Caravan isn’t a nightclub (as five Heads Down fans from Nottingham found out one Saturday) but an amazing bar and modern tapas restaurant, with outdoor seating, award winning food […]
