Digital Desires - July 2014 Download Chart


Bit of a catch up on the digital front covering the tracks I have been playing over the last couple of months. Some of these arrived after the vinyl versions and some came way earlier.

Beat-Herder Festival 2014


The festival of festivals returns for 2014 and I can't wait to get back to Beatherdershire...

Now in my 8th year, I have been DJing at The Beat-Herder Festival in the Trailer Trash tent since the crew first asked me in 2007.  I'd done a few local festivals at that point as well as popping my Glastonbury cherry a few years earlier, but nothing could have prepared me for the warm glow I felt as soon as I arrived on site.  "you need to get down here", "it's a proper little festival", "no they don't do day tickets, just come down on Saturday and you'll love it" were some of the text messages I was bashing out on my mobile.

Cream Of The Crop - July 2014 Vinyl Chart


A nice balance of newness and sought after classics this time around. Everything from heavy as you like tribal rhythms, through to the girliest of disco, some pretty deep house cuts, plus that ace Charizma & Peanut Butter Wolf box set is essential.
