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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Andy Blake Interview

Andy Blake is a London-based DJ, producer and label owner. He is also a man that brings a punk rock DIY aesthetic to an industry full of sycophants and predictability. Andy is unequivocally neither. For me, talking to Andy is like being re-baptised in the music and culture you once loved and emerging refreshed and […]

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.

Ewan Pearson Interview

It’s funny, despite the monstrous weight of electronic music being vomited out of Apple Macs on a weekly basis and being released by instantly forgotten labels around the world, there are but a handful of producers across the genres that anyone would describe as Premier League. By this I mean producers who can be genuinely […]

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 […]

Kris Needs Interview (Part One)

vimeo Direkt Kris Needs is a bit of a legend. OK, he’s a lot of a legend. From his almost supernatural ability to find himself at the point of so many cultural lightening strikes over the years (from NYC disco and post punk to Acid House), Kris has found himself producing dance music as Secret […]
