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... but this was a Thursday night and having DJ Paulette inside the press room at Phonogram at the time meant we could make good use of her contacts in the photography world.... so here @mrperou came through for us! Paulette was already well established back then as a pioneering DJ from Manchester who I’d managed to convince to come and boost the Talkin Loud soldiers at a time when @ronisizebristol and @louievega / @kdope50 ‘s Nu Yorican Soul @carlcraignet ‘s Innerzone Orchestra and 4 Hero were all unleashing some important works for the label....in reflection this was a golden age and Paulette was certainly a force to be reckoned with behind the decks teaching Norman and I a lesson or 10.... great to see Paulette is still roaming the planet with her box of musical delights and all round goodness... seeing her spinning at @weoutherefest was one of the highlights for me... she’ll be spinning at many of next summer’s festivals - make sure you catch her if you can!
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

SWEET HARMONY / RAVE TODAY opens at the Saatchi Gallery on Friday 12th of July. My interview in the accompanying coffee table book is illustrated by the works of four of my favourite photographers Lee Baxter, Daniel Newman, Lou Rhodes and Andrew Aitch.

Emotional journeys always take the longest. By December 2016 my world and the world itself has changed so much that you’d be forgiven (and subsequently so can I – be forgiven) for not recognising it from this year’s perspective. By comparison, the physical journey (practically unaided) from Ibiza to Manchester is nothing more than a simple stroll in Thatch Leach Park.
