Sunday Sundowner on the Seafarers Rooftop

This weekend (the 1st) I will be venturing out of the Bays in Wellington to straddle the big bird to Auckland(!) in order to play some properly Balearic records in the sunshine. For those of you who don’t know, Seafarers is the boom dadda new members club in Tyler St bang on the waterfront. I’ll […]

LN-CC Recordings Launch Night 12th December

It was inevitable I guess; LN-CC were always going to take this step officially. Think about who works there: Jonny Nash from Land Of Light, Dan Mitchell from Bad Passion… In fact they’re all total record nerds. So, subsequently you also know that when they do this they’re going to do it with some conviction. […]

Machine ‘Redhead’ (Joe Claussell Interpretations)

This looks great- I’ll definitely be getting my shabby ass down there. Maybe I’ll even don a caftan in Claussell’s honour. Or not, as the case may be. Go here for RSVP.

Nagaoka, Phonon & Grado at LN-CC

Here’s a little heads-up at Heads Down on some degenerate audio porn that’s just landed at the emporium of all things covetable- LN-CC. They’re proper record nerds down at the Dalston mothership, and that, evidently, doesn’t stop at rare and crave-worthy vinyl. They’ve just received an arsenal of super high end styli, headphones and conductive […]

Caravan ‘Le Début d’Été’ Mix

It’s about that time again: I’ve very pleased to announce that after much to-ing and fro-ing the Heads Down Saturday Summer Sessions will be returning to Caravan again for 2012. Last year was fantastic, but exhausting, so we’ve decided to bring it back fortnightly so I don’t have to be stretchered out of there come […]

Bad Passion with the Idjut Boys

I’m posting about this for two reasons, those reasons being the two exceptional sets of people involved. The Bad Passion boys are, you guessed it, endlessly passionate about their music and incredibly serious about the less-than-serious business of throwing a wicked party. The Idjut Boys are absolutely sensational on a good night, and nothing less […]

TONIGHT at Mighty Mighty, Wellington, NZ

I’m very excited to announce I’ll be playing tonight at Wellington’s legendary Mighty Mighty from midnight till late with extremely able assistance from local hero B Lo (who more than knows his onions). The last time I played here two years ago I had A BALL, so it’s always a bit nerve-wrecking going back to […]

Exclusive Toby Tobias Download

Toby Tobias is an excellent British DJ and underground producer best known for his uniquely woozy, technoid take on modern disco and the lesser known fact that he is undoubtedly one of the nicest men in dance music. Here Mr Tobias has very generously given me an exclusive piece of music to give y’all: it’s […]

Nick The Record Pop-Up Store At LN-CC

Nick The Record is one of those names that has been buried deep in my London musical consciousness since the early nineties (he was a regular player at DJ Harvey’s Moist night in Covent Garden), his name is almost a byword for record lust, obsessive collecting and an uncynical love for spreading the (near) perfect […]

Art, Music, Love & Money in Ibiza 2011

More ruminations on the state of the White Island from Nightmares On Wax, Toddla T et al… My own risible contributions included (inevitably). By the way: I meant ‘Two Of China’, not ‘Two China’, before any of you nerds get up in my grill!
