Idjut Boys Interview

I interviewed the Idjuts for the first time a year or so ago, and it was great fun. Unfortunately it was on a very lo-res format and it’s like watching an interview with two cartoon bubble men made out of Tetris blocks (or something). Anyway, My work with the AllSaints Basement Sessions has luckily allowed […]

Special Golf Channel Recordings Event

If you’re in London on Thursday 17th of February you should get down to this. Golf Channel are just about the hottest label coming out of New York right now (bar ESP Institute) and they just seem to be climbing further and further up the barometer, with super esoteric releases from Heroes Of The Galleon […]

Exclusive Honey Soundsystem Mix

The Honey Soundsystem are a San Francisco based ‘queer collective’ of disco and house crazed party people who have recently been gaining some infamy outside their hometown. They’re known to book international record players like Todd Terje, Horse Meat Disco and Cosmo Vitelli, which has no doubt help spread their debauched leather-clad late night litany […]

LN-CC Opening

A couple of friends of mine, Dan Mitchell (Bad Passion) and Jonny Nash (Sombrero Galaxy) have, with their business partners, just opened an amazing new emporium of all things (to me anyway) desirable and collectable. It’s called the Late Night Chameleon Cafe (or LN-CC) and it’s situated in Dalston, London. Now, I can already hear […]

Terry Farley & Dave Jarvis on going to Shoom

I mentioned in a post the other day that I might be cornering these guys for a chat about the early days of Acid House, and here it is. I have about an hour of footage (all gold) and I’m going to chop it up into swallowable bite size edits for you the MTV generation. […]

Tommi White ‘We, The Unexpected’ (Oblong)

This undoubtably comes under the archival heading of ‘secret weapon’. Every time I’ve played this sucker over the years someone’s run up to ask what it is. I remember Rocky from Express-2 even offering me hard cash for it! ‘We, The Unexpected’ was released back in 1999 by Lewis Copeland (ex owner of the now […]

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

Here’s part two in my two part interview with the boys. 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 […]

Exclusive International Feel T Shirt & CD

My lovely peoples down at LN-CC (Bad Passion’s Dan Mitchell and the top-notch producer Jonny Nash amongst them) have just released this exclusive T Shirt/CD from Uruguay’s cosmic leftfield label International Feel. I remember when International Feel released those first edit bits and everyone thought the label being from Uruguay was some kind of joke […]

Terry Farley & Dave Jarvis ‘Happy Days’ Interview (Part 1)

Last week I sat down with two men who’ve seen more than their rightful share of the nightlife; from Junior Boys Own to Faith respectively, these guys were there and in my opinion remain relevant exponents of all that is good about dance music. 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 […]
