Here is the listen back to my first live show from the brand spanking new Reform Radio studios in Manchester. This month I was honoured with the patronage of a real life MBE - Norman Jay MBE. He's probably the first person with an MBE to be heard on the station and a definite first for my Takeover Shows. Enjoy.

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 –…

Whoever decided that November was a good month to start thinking about hibernating must have been living in a cave. Oh they were. OK that explains it. We're not though - and guess what - there is no time like the present to fill your social diary with shenanigans a plenty.

Last week and last playlist from #Homebird at The Lowry via Spotify - it's 2016 - The Next Decade. There's music that I love that has nothing to do with house or techno. And then there's house and techno... and the future? Who knows. Homebird has flown the coop.

Sobs. Only six more sleeps to the end of my HOMEBIRD exhibition at The Lowry. How do I feel about this? Well, it's been the most incredible journey from start to finish.

HOMEBIRD: 2006 - 2016 is about the time when I debuted fully in Paris - I had started a weekly residency at Mix Club in October 2005 so by 2006, every Friday and some Saturdays Paris was mine. My residency at Queen Club started in 2010. I eventually resigned from Queen Club and Radio FG and moved to Ibiza in…

The Rex Club could not resist rending homage to this Manchester scene and welcomes Dave Haslam and Mike Pickering two of the principal figures in the Manchester and in fact the UK house music scene - and along with DJ Paulette welcomes three of the residents of the mythical club where Laurent Garnier made his first moves as a DJ.
Massive thanks to The A-Magazine for including me in their round up of Manchester Women Of The Year. It is a massive honour yet also very humbling to be considered in such esteemed company. I can't lie, it feels so good to get some recognition for what I do, and especially in my hometown.
Here is the very wonderful and very cheeky and all too short debut guest show that I produced, curated and presented for MCR:Live on International Women's Day. It was a crazy, full throttle session involving juxtaposing some new stuff, some old stuff, some classics and some downright curve balls in one steady ( as it could be shifting from live…
