Exclusive OUT THERE!!! ‘Afrikanz On Marz’ Mix

Those of you who shamble upon this blog regularly will know that Ashley Beedle is seen as a bit of a ledge around these parts. So when he offered me a mix exclusively for Heads Down, not only did I spill my kedgeree in my lap (no that’s not a euphemism) and victory punch the […]

Robert Owens Interview (Part 3)

I really enjoyed interviewing Robert; he’s an underground legend, a warmly endearing person and a fantastic artist. And as much as I loved hearing about his writing process, his collaboration with Larry Heard and the creation of his new album, what I REALLY wanted to hear about was the clubs, the atmosphere- what it was […]

Robert Owens Interview (Part One)

So, here it is, my first Heads Down post since December. My excuse is I’ve been out in New Zealand getting married, and if that’s not a good enough alibi then you’re a heartless, hard to please bunch of so-and-sos (but I love that about you). Here I have part one of my interviews with […]

Daniel Wang Interview

As you may or may not recall, Heads Down was a key partner at this year’s Red Bull Music Academy. This was a total coup, as it gave/gives me access to an Aladdin’s cave of video footage from the last ten years of the Academy. Here’s a wee edit I did of the Danny Wang […]

Greg Wilson Interview (Part One)

Greg Wilson is someone about whom much has been written. From the heights of his Eighties electro fame to his seemingly bizarre early retirement leading to his phoenix-like return to prominence… It’s a brit-flick in the making. I’m not going to ramble on about the usual well documented history: you can read about that here, […]

Flemming Dalum ‘Boogie Down Rimini’ Mix (Magic Waves)

Recently I had a phone conversation with Red Rack em (see my interview here at Heads Down) whereby he was raving about (he’s usually raving about something) some legendary DJ mixes by a mysterious eighties Danish Italo DJ named Flemming Dalum . He told me I should call Ali Renault (he of Heartbreak fame) and get […]
