This Is DJ Mag's 'Black Representation in the UK Dance Music Industry' #paneldiscussion from the BRIGHTON MUSIC CONFERENCE. Set an hour aside for you to view and reflect.

Welcome to the listen back for August's wonderful Isolation Takeover on Reform Radio. Warehouse Project's magnificent Krysko took the controls for the guest mix at the top of the show and I provide the live mix and bantz for the second half as usual.

100 DJs showed up #ForBeirut virtual festival for 12 hours non stop music across multiple rooms with @electroniclaborday 💚 @beatport. I am proud to have represented for Manchester.
Over three beautiful days in August, the battle cry was 'don't let the virus get you down' as We Out Here Festival and Reform Radio showed everybody how it's done, provided the online, underground contrast, powerful political platform and the shining stage for talks, djs, artists and screenings for all that's good from Manchester to London and around the world…
Here's the watch link for my stream for the DJ Mag / Beatport Alternative Top 100 DJs Virtual Festival. It's a fund raiser for Unicef so please give what you can afford. Thank you 🙏🙏🏾🙏🏻

In response to the Music Industry's Black Out Tuesday and Black Lives Matter, Gilles Peterson programme for Stay Home, Rave Safe on 6Music and his Saturday session became CLUB UNITY - a space for reflection, education and celebration through black music. You can listen here for the next 20 days.
My June Isolation Takeover for Reform Radio jumped to the inimitable sound of Gina Breeze - one of my favourite dj / producers and a super friend too. I'm in for the second half to jack and bounce you all the way to your peak end. Enjoy. And don't forget to show us some love in the hearts and reposts…
Accaliberation is where I let my nosey alter ego explore my obsession with and love of the voice and vocals. May's theme is ‘Deep House’ - so grab a mic or a hair brush, your song sheet and your favourite patch of home dance floor for two hours of total accaliberation.
Hacienda House Party-Part II-Live Stream made the BBC News last night. Over a million streams and no-one in the room. I make a little cameo in the clip, created by Hilly MC. Wonderful stuff. #livestream #virtualfestival #thisismcr

Last week I had the honour and the joy of joining my friends at Pxssy Palace and BBZ London for an Isolation Boiler Room session.Move the furniture back, turn the lights down and fire up the smoke machine. This is how it goes down when we rave at home alone :-D ...

It is a rare occasion when the planets align in such a way that a great party, its solid line up and a banging set in a banging room is captured live for diffusion later. Here is the opening of my set from Homoelectric at Hidden, February 8, 2020 just for you.

It’s such a massive boost when someone you love, respect and look up to as a maverick and a game changer says nice things about you. This is what Luke Unabomber had to say that brought the sun out on a very moody day.

Here's a beautiful after-video that slipped the net from La Discotheque x Bluedot Festival. It was a special full moon, that weekend in July and here's your proof.

In Gabriel Szatan's own words: And it’s a testament to Mancunian hardiness that hundreds brave the arctic conditions to cavort to local hero DJ Paulette doling out fruity house numbers on an alfresco terrace.

Eleven months into the year and there is no sign of letting up for the Paulette Takeover on Reform Radio. For November (Movember) I invited my first male guest in months ... Mr James Curd ... to take the controls for the first hour and here's how it went down.

In the words of Gilles Peterson: blast from the past... with @dj_paulette1 and @normanjaymbe back in 98 on the eve of a short lived but tremendous residency we all held together in the Eve Club on Regent Street... the thought of clubbing in the West End now feels like a bygone age

Welcome to the second Paulette Takeover in August - oh the joy of five week months :-D This show features the incomparable skills of Mr Shoom himself - Danny Rampling - one of the founding fathers of UK rave and a cornerstone of the international house music scene.
Oh, oh ... 😲 it was time to ‘get up offa ya seat and repeat’ for sure!! This is how I came to slay and rocked the party 🎉 on the Southbank when I closed the @nationaltheatre River Stage on Saturday August 3rd 2019.

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.

I was rifling through my archive videos on Facebook and stumbled across this clip from the BURN FG DJ AWARDS 2007. The awards were voted by the public and I was a relatively new resident in Paris. To say I didn't realise what weight I was punching at then is a total understatement but when you see the talent in…

I am always getting stopped in the street by people who were at the Black Coffee party at Mint Lounge in Manchester. I smashed the party that night and this is the closing set that did the damage (I played an equally well received, marvellous and eclectic opening set that sadly wasn't recorded). I topped and tailed the headliners –…
