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 […]

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 […]

2 Bears Interview

We’d been going back and forth with these guys and their management for a while at the Basement Sessions, so I was subsequently surprised and stoked when it happily eventuated. I had tentatively high hopes for their LP ‘Be Strong’, but as I’m very used to be colossally let down by seemingly promising dance artists […]

DJ Harvey Interview

  DJ Harvey – Interview – AllSaints Basement Sessions from AllSaints Spitalfields on Vimeo. Well here it is, perhaps the biggest interview I’ve posted on the blog so far. Me and the Basement Sessions boys got flown to LA to interview the man himself, ensconced at the Mondrian hotel, allowed to put EVERYTHING on the […]

Kris Needs Interview (Part Two)

Six months later and here, finally, ashamedly, is part two of my Kris Needs interview. I would wear you down with numbingly predictable excuses, but because it’s Christmas I’ll generously refrain. To remind you: I went to see the infamous music journo and raconteur to talk to him about part one in his amazing ‘Watch […]

Tensnake Interview

vimeo Direkt Tensnake (aka Marco Niemerski) is a German producer and DJ who, let’s face it, has had a rather power-packed sixteen months. His single ‘Coma Cat’ was a smash with everyone from Optimo to the likes of Radio 1’s Annie Mac. I have to admit it never did much for me as I thought […]
