It’s time to roll up, roll up, dig deep, bed in and get down with your bad sel.ves on Friday August the 9th, as Paulette Does Techno at the cool AF Psychedelic Discotech session at The Carlton Club (Whalley Range).
I’m heading down south and racking up the Trainline and Virgin Trains loyalty points again. Catch me at White City House on Friday August 2nd, The Ned Pool Party with Dimitri from Paris on Saturday (afternoon) August 3rd and smashing the life out of the River Stage at The National Theatre on Saturday night. Too excited to type any more…
My photo set status from Facebook goes a little way to recapturing the magic that was Bluedot. La Discotheque was LIT LIT LIT. I loved every minute of it.

SWEET HARMONY / RAVE TODAY opens at the Saatchi Gallery on Friday 12th of July. My interview in the accompanying coffee table book is illustrated by the works of four of my favourite photographers Lee Baxter, Daniel Newman, Lou Rhodes and Andrew Aitch. Who’d have thought those four pictures would find their way to the #SaatchiGallery, eh?
I spoke to Resident Advisor’s rapier sharp interviewer Martha Pazienti Caidan about life, the world, the universe, dj’ing, the music industry, equality, diversity and talking to slugs. It’s a 90 minute listen that you can download and listen to on Itunes and add to your Spotify collection too. I can’t tell a lie, this is very much a dj #goals #bucketlist moment for me. #proud #gratitude – and huge thanks to Mark, Martha and all at Resident Advisor for making me feel so welcome on the day.
