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…

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.

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 –…

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.

Last Wednesday (October 3rd) I took part in the Skiddle Mental Health event that was held at Joshua Brookes. The focus of the discussion was a poll that Skiddle had commissioned, drawing some staggering statistics from a sample of events workers, organisations and promoters regarding the effects their work / jobs have on their mental health.
