Ross Allen on A&Ring

Ross Allen is a broadcaster, journalist, label owner, DJ, manager and arguably most famously of all, an A&R. For me, Ross epitomises the optimism and open-mindedness that made dance music the cultural and creative force it became in the early to mid nineties. Some of his work with Peshay, Talvin Singh, The Stereo MCs and […]

Terry Farley & Dave Jarvis ‘Happy Days’ Interview (Part 2)

Here they talk about the occasionally intimidating nature of dancing in clubs in the late seventies and how clubbing outside your area was akin to going to the moon. This is definitely one of my favourite Heads Down interviews! If you want to hear […]

Terry and Dave have just released an amazingly comprehensive series of […]

Beam Me Up on Friday October 8th

That’s right my pretties, I’m taking it back to the floor (and I’ve primed some VERY upfront weapons for this malarky) on Friday at Beam Me Up at The Bathhouse in London. It’s about as far a cry from my Caravan night as feasibly imaginable; this is a late night party full of late night […]

Red Rack’em ‘The Early Years’ Interview

I recently talked to Heads Down favourite and all round compadre-in-arms Red Rack’em (aka Daniel Berman) about his debut album ‘The Early Years’, on his very own imprint Bergerac.
