Next stop on the HEAR HEAR journey around the world for International Women’s month (because a day is nowhere near enough time to show all the women who influence and inspire us some love) is Manchester. In Episode 4 I celebrate the Divine Feminine version 220.127.116.11 with a true Manchester legend, celebrity, singer, Manchester United fan, dog lover and my HEAR HEAR INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S MONTH ICON – ROWETTA (MCR, UK). She’s a Proper Mancunian with a heart of gold and I’m honoured to have gained an audience with this absolute Queen.
Welcome to Episode 2 of ‘HEAR HEAR’. Consciously uncoupled from my Reform Radio show, it’s my chance to share the wisdom and joy of some extraordinary people in a lockdown regulated session that is exclusive to my YouTube channel. I am blessed and schooled this month by the inspirational and unfuckwithable Jamz Supernova. She’s a BBC 1Xtra and Selector Radio powerhouse and the brains behind the Future Bounce parties and record label and she brings the fire in some beautiful ways.

A little while ago Play It Louder messaged me on my Instagram account and asked if I would do an isolation interview for their page. Here is part two of a two part post.
Award winning actor, activist, dj and all around beautiful person, Maxine Peake was the Guest Editor of the Culture section of Morning Star newspaper at the end of June. She invited me to write an opinion piece on how COVID and lockdown has affected my work and life. Here is my column.
I’m always banging on about how proud I am to be a Manc so it is a massive honour to be able to commit my absolute love and passion for this city and my hometown to film.

I am absolutely buzzing to join the line up for Glitterbox Virtual Festival 3.0 on Friday May 15th, 2020. Mental line up as usual – Emmy and Golden Globe winning, Billy Porter live and direct. Your #QuarantineWeekend entertainment most certainly starts here …
Thanks to the magic of technology, our musical life continues virtually unhindered. Last month’s TAKEOVER guests were regulars Black Girl / White Girl: from Tel Aviv to Holland and on the global stage, these girls bring the fire every time. Takeover? We’re going guerilla in a lockdown style. BBBBBBRRRRRRRAAAAPPPP Bro. Stick with us. Keep it locked. Stay safe. Protect the NHS. Save Lives.
Saturday 9th May 2020 sees The Hacienda throw open its distinctively numbered doors for “The Hacienda House Party II” with United We Stream Greater Manchester (GMCA’s fundraising streaming platform). Prepare yourself for another epic twelve hour session, as some of the greatest US DJ legends supply exclusive sets whilst many of The Hacienda’s finest residents play out from our secret lockdown studio straight out of the Greater Manchester region. I am honoured to be one of those residents and will be streaming live from 3pm – 4pm (BST).
It is a massive, massive honour to have been invited to provide a 30 minute Quarantine and Chill mix on a We Out Here festival tip for Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM. Oh and as always – there’s a message in my music. Stay Home. Protect the NHS. Save lives. And love one another.
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 😀 …
Welcome to ‘BUSHY’S QUARANTINE AND CHILL MIX’ – it’s streaming for you now on Mixcloud. From the bedroom to the bathroom, from the kitchen to your yard, you’ll find that it’s funky, soulful, jazzy and will have you dancing in no time at all. Quarantini anyone?
