Welcome to Accaliberation a two-hour celebration of the beauty of vocals, lyrics and songs. This month I’m in a Virgo and Libran mood, celebrating the birthdays of Gary Bartz, Archie Bell, Dee Dee Sharp-Gamble, Marlena Shaw and Taana Gardner. Dive in, the water here is lovely.
Sweltering in the current heat, I remembered Spike Lee’s ‘Do The Right Thing’ and thought ‘why not share some of my favourite black music from movie soundtracks for my show on Worldwide FM?’. So this is what I’ve done.
For July’s second Reform Radio Takeover (yes to those five week months) – my guest mix controls were blessed by Henriquez – one of the residents for the mighty Mancunians – Zutekh. It’s a beautifully eclectic mix which is deep, techy and electronic and I am sure you will show him plenty of love with the listens!
So here we are on the other side of Christmas and still in Tier 3. Just as well then that I will be playing music all through the day in the virtual world on New Year’s Eve. Catch me throughout the day bringing good cheer and peace to all with the Hacienda, Gaydio, Mixcloud, Reform Radio and We Out Here Festival. Lots of different flavours for all to enjoy and bring in the New Year in digital style.
16 October 2020 I had the good fortune to sit at the table with a BBC 1Xtra presenter par excellence. the incredible Jamz Supernova. I sat in on her ‘Distant Dialogues’ special on the British Council’s ‘Selector Radio’ and this is what it sounded like.
My June Isolation Takeover for Reform Radio jumped to the inimitable sound of Gina Breeze – one of my favourite dj / producers and a super friend too. I’m in for the second half to jack and bounce you all the way to your peak end. Enjoy. And don’t forget to show us some love in the hearts and reposts section or subscribe to my Select for exclusive content.
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.
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?
For my last ‘in studio’ show before the World got quarantined I was honoured to welcome the super talented, multi instrumentalist, dj, singer, producer and personification of zen – Pops Roberts to take control of my Reform Radio Takeover and this is how it sounds. Just beautiful. Enjoy. Stay safe. Stay home. Save lives. Stay connected.
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. Life is about overcoming challenges, about never being defeated and about doing what I’m best at. Life is about disco, tech and house. Life is about living. Life is beautiful indeed.
Stay safe. Stay home. Save lives.

Eleven months into the year and there is no sign of letting up for the Paulette Takeover on Reform Radio. For November (Movember) I invited my first male guest in months … Mr James Curd … to take the controls for the first hour and here’s how it went down.
Here’s my Paulette Takeover for Reform Radio from October 24th featuring an exclusive guest mix from Berlin’s finest Maya Schenk. We’re #22 on the Global Tech Chart on Mixcloud so wrap your ears around it and pass it on! Big love.
Welcome to the second Paulette Takeover in August – oh the joy of five week months 😀 This show features the incomparable skills of Mr Shoom himself – Danny Rampling – one of the founding fathers of UK rave and a cornerstone of the international house music scene.

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 – Black Coffee – and Themba on May 6th 2018. The mix was a front page, featured ‘Mix Of The Month’ on the Evermix site (when they featured DJ mixes) and I was super proud of that.
Blimey O Reilly … Crikey!! This is amazing!! The Massey and Paulette Project brought it to the runway and represented perfectly, closing Supernature’s 3rd Birthday at Underdog in Manchester with this bouncing beauty of a set.
