Feel My Bicep Residency @ Plastic People

My friends over at the illustrious Feel My Bicep blog have launched a monthly residency at London’s world-famous Plastic People club (a club known for it’s impeccable soundsystem) and I have a strong suspicion it’s going to be a killer night. These dudes have a highly diverse and refined dance music palette (as well as […]

dBridge ‘City Of Lonely Runaways’

Darren White (aka dBridge) is a Drum & Bass producer right? Wasn’t he in D&B supergroup Bad Company? Yes, I hear you: he’s not a particularly obvious addition to the Heads Down oeuvre. But lately (actually for a while) this man has been delivering some seriously forward thinking analog music. Through his Autonomic podcasts and […]

Horse Meat Disco Interview

vimeo Direkt I recently interviewed Horse Meat Disco’s James Hillard for the AllSaints Basement Sessions; HMD is London’s premier full scale disco party. He’s a most agreeable fellow and it’s so good to see them progressing and doing so well; there’s compilations, global touring… HMD is almost an international nightlife brand. Good on those men. […]

Caravan ‘Indian Summer’ Mix

Woah, heatwave! Yup that’s right, for all you readers who aren’t UK-based and look upon our ‘summers’ with wry amusement, you can stick it- because we’ve got a heatwave! Right here in blighty! Inevitably by the time you actually read this it’ll all be over and I’ll be tipping my flat upside down looking for […]

Jus Wax Pop-Up Store at LN-CC

To be honest I first became aware of Swedish DJ Mark Seven through his totally brilliant CD compilation released as part of the ‘Originals’ series on Claremont 56. The contents of that compilation have, I’m ashamed to say, become ‘heavy-rotate’ down at my Caravan residency in Exmouth Market (especially Stars And Bars by Stars ‘N […]

Summer Solstice Mix for Caravan

If you follow my loquacious warbling on Twitter (@CMJCT), you’ll know that I take Heads Down live every Saturday to Caravan at Exmouth Market in London. Caravan isn’t a nightclub (as five Heads Down fans from Nottingham found out one Saturday) but an amazing bar and modern tapas restaurant, with outdoor seating, award winning food […]

Lexx Interview

vimeo Direkt Swiss DJ and producer Alex Storrer aka Lexx is one of the most respected members of the modern disco house firmament. He manages to achieve this without being particularly prolific, but by being high on the quality control and by being very selective as to where he releases his music; Permanent Vacation, Drumpoet […]

Digitalism Interview

vimeo Direkt Digitalism are a couple of Hamburgers (hamburglers?) that rose to fame around 2008; they arrived at that moment where indie, electro and a new raucous eclecticism (a la Erol Alkan) became fashionable and inadvertently reinvigorated dance music for a new generation. I recently conducted the above interview for the Basement Sessions , posted […]

Beam Me Up party this Saturday

First up, a big apology for the lack of activity on the blog. I’ve been rather busy with that tiresome malady know as ‘real life’ and haven’t had a chance to do any Heads Downery whatsoever. It’s made even worse by the fact I have some wonderful interviews waiting to be edited and posted… I […]
