2010 live mixes added

16th June 2010

I've linked to some new live mixes, recorded at some gigs this year.  Apologies for being a bit tardy in posting some recently.  When I say 'linked to', I mean they're physically hosted on other sites.  One is from last weekend's Out To Graze Festival which is being broadcast this Saturday on Oxford's FM107.9 for Rich Smith's Slide Show and another from last month at Simple after SBTRKT was on the decks; I say decks, but he's a laptop-jock.  Each mix takes excursions into Techno and Dubstep, respectively, which I enjoyed immensely; it always feels good to try something different and challenging.  Anyway, please avail your ears...

In other news, we're taking a break over the summer at Simple, which ultimately means I can take a break too.  This is good; time to sit back, reflect, and improve.  There's always room for improvement.  That's not to say there won't be any parties over the summer, oh no!  After the spectacle of Out To Graze, there's Cowley Road Carnival (always a pleasure), and I'll be DJing with friends at Truck 13 on the Fresh Out The Box stage in Boxford village.  And to round it all off, the cherry on top of the cake, it's Simple & Slide's glorious boat party; we're celebrating five years of them!  Head over to my gigs page for all the details.
