My favourite weekend of the year is upon us and there's plenty of LW DJ action to report. Sunday night I'm playing at the Sancho Panza after party (alongside PBR Streetgang and Psychemagik): http://d.pr/UVuB - Monday night at The Masons Arms (alongside Terry Farley & Pete Herbert): http://d.pr/Ogqe - And to kick the weekend off I'll be at the Lockside Lounge in Camden for Rocket Science: http://d.pr/Ne18 - See you on the dancefloor. x

Played this earlier today and realised I'd never made it a free download. Perfect Summertime soul.

The Queen of Hoxton asked me for a holiday memory ahead of my gig there this Saturday with Norman Jay and this is what I wrote:
"The first time I went on holiday to America was in 1976 (I was eight years old). At the time I remember being more than a tad jealous of my cousin because he owned the very first 'boom box / ghetto blaster' I'd ever encountered (if memory serves right it was made by Marantz). We took this thing everywhere but my best memory was of going to Red Rock Amphitheatre in Colorado (just for the spectacle of the place, nobody was playing that day) and blasting ELO's Evil Woman out of the thing over and over again. And now nearly 40 years down the line, Evil Woman has become a staple for me when playing at festivals and such like (Inner West Soul did a cracking re-edit a few years back) and everytime I play it I'm transported back to that moment at Red Rock when I was eight."
They're down to the final 9 tickets so if fancy an afternoon in the sunshine with great music go grab em' here - http://www.wegottickets.com/event/234082
Not only a wonderful rework but a lovely humble touch in their write up for why they did it "The original is sublime and cannot be improved, this rework is only a tribute to one of our heroes." Their love for the music shows in the results.
Forgot to mention that this instrumental version of my Cry Me A River remix finally got a release a few months back and spent about 6 weeks on the top spot of the Lounge chart at Traxsource - go get it if you haven't already - http://www.traxsource.com/track/468640/cry-me-a-river-leftside-wobble-extended-instrumental
One of my first ever edits given a new lick for paint for a future release

Posted about the Shir Khan presents series a few weeks ago and this is the latest by Bristols finest Behling & Simpson. 4 tracks in this preview but the second track in particular blew me away. EP of the summer and just in store today at Juno (vinyl only at the moment, digital follows in a few weeks).
Put this together in support of the Terry Farley 'Acid Rain' compilation, which comes out next monday. The original DJ International vinyl of this goes for around £40 so get in on the free download via www.artistlink.com/home/products/259039

Second week in a row for a Chris Coco posting. Recorded live at the Summer Sound festival in Finland; this is the best 'wind down' selection I've heard in quite some time. Beautiful stuff indeed...
