Crue-L Grand Orchestra ‘(You Are) More Than Paradise’ (Theo Parrish Long Version 1)(Crue-L Records)

I feel like such a darned hypocrite when it comes to Theo Parrish, the remixer of this record (see my rant about Billy Love for some clarification). I’ve thought him overrated for so long, yet now I think he’s a genius. Inconsistent much? Still, I continue to think his early records are crappy, but I […]

Roy Matthews (Vinyl Factory) Interview

This month I thought I’d continue my trend away from DJ’s and producers (don’t worry, they’ll be back) and towards the unsung heroes of the music industry world: the visual artists, industry heads and manufacturers. Roy Matthews is a legend in the field of vinyl record production, an engineer who’s spirited passion for vinyl is […]

Theo Parrish live in Berlin

Red Bull Music Academy Radio are throwing down some crackers at the moment. I thought I’d pop up this mix series; it contains more Theo Parrish on the wheels than you could ever possibly want in a day, or most certainly need. Enjoy.

Heads Down At Caravan

If you live in London and haven’t been to Caravan in Exmouth Market, you are without a doubt missing a trick. Caravan is a restaurant headed up by Kiwi Miles Kirby, who was chef at The Providores & Tapa Room in Marylebone for the last six years. In other words it’s pretty hot. Food isn’t […]

Psychedelic Elevator Mix (for MOS)

I recently recorded this mix for Ministry Of Sound Radio (they broadcast it after Cosmo’s show a couple of weeks ago) and it came out so well I thought I’d better blog it. It’s quite druggy and linear (sort of) which is not really my default mode. I just had a wicked time doing something […]

Dave Little Interview

Dave Little is a graphic art legend. In fact I think this Newcastle lad is well on his way to becoming an ART legend, full stop! His work for Bomb The Bass, S\’Express, The Aloof and Junior Boys Own is seminal and timeless. He’s recently drawn the cover for the new edition of X-Ray magazine […]

Red Bull Music Academy Radio

I don’t much like posting other people’s content on Heads Down, but I make an exception for these dudes. As loads of you will be aware, I worked on the Red Bull Music Academy earlier this year in London, which was a fantastic experience. The Academy is a rare example of a superbrand investing in […]
