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 […]

Alex Barck Interview

Alex Barck interview – AllSaints Basement Sessions from AllSaints Spitalfields on Vimeo. Alex Barck is Jazzanova’s DJ, one half of Prommer & Barck and one of the founding fathers of Sonar Kollektiv and Derwin Records. He’s also, incidentally, one of the most requested interviewees at Heads Down. I finally managed to track him down for […]

Daniel Avery Interview

I met Mr Avery through his Myspace page (I THINK- my memory’s appalling), which always featured on it’s music player something I’d never heard before. I remember him posting a demo by The XX maybe over a year before anyone else had even heard of them, let alone heard their music. At the time I […]

Trevor Jackson Interview

Output. Playgroup. The Underdog… Not to mention an incredible archive of era defining art design. The man casts an unmistakable silhouette against the backdrop of UK underground culture. It’s Trevor Jackson and he’s at the Basement Sessions. Undoubtably one of my favourite interviewees to date.
