LOCKDOWN 1 has me in house/tech mode. This week I took my inspiration from a Twitter / Instagram friend called Stephanie who asked when I would be doing a live stream. I made this especially for her.

Trump is coming to London in December for the NATO Heads of State summit, and on Tuesday 3rd December the Queen will be hosting a reception for him at Buckingham Palace. R3 Soundsystem will be taking to the streets that evening, to protest against the far-right politics of The Tories, Trump and Farage. RESIST. REJECT. REVOLT.

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
