Thank you Walk the Plank and Morag Rose for a magical Day Out at Drinkies last Saturday. I started my Soundtrail activity in a hidden corner in the forest before moving up to the field. The instructions were to explore the Irwell trail through sound, draw a soundmap and reflect on one’s sonic experience. Thank you to everyone who collectively drew the soundmap with me!
Thank you Reneta aka solofemaleraver for booking me as support act for the wonderful 食品まつりa.k.aFOODMAN. It was a dream come true to play at The White Hotel and I believe we created a nice flow from my ambient start to my more beatdriven tracks before foodman taking off like a rocket in his insane live set. It was just right. Shout out to Phantom Limb Touring, Hyperdub Records and to the Music Venue Trust and their #mvtfightback campaign.
Thank you Ashley Garrod for this review: “Let’s talk support! Industries; acres of electronic space, sparse textures, a soundtrack for introspection. Atmosphere was the name of the game, and while the soothing hiss of his compositions doesn’t lend itself to my music graduate brain’s desire for excessive analysis, it was most enjoyable none-the-less, a fitting preparation for what was to come.”.

Thank you as well Daniel Tsourekas for another great review – I loved your description of my music!
FLUFF #3 was a full success! Congratulations to my FLUFF partner in crime Norrisette who curated the event. I feel so honoured that we have set up this night together to both give a platform for our electronic music and to provide a stage for other queer electronic music producers. Fuel Café Bar become a home for FLUFF and Lee Parry has been providing great sound support for all our events so far. I feel so grateful that so many people have turned up to every FLUFF so far and I cannot believe the talent that has graced our stage. Yesterday we had three first time gigs by incredibly talented acts: Fraz Ireland and their experimental sound art set with lots of surprising samples and tons of humour, Neonshe’s invigorating j pop, and sexwithmadonna’s atmospheric, wild and erotic performance. And then of course there was Nortisette’s joyful set with special guest Rosé Gold. I will organise FLUFF #4 so watch this space…
FLUFF is a night of queer electronica, live in Manchester, set up by Norrisette and Industries. This third instalment is curated by Norrisette. The night is a platform for queer electronic music producers to perform their music to a live audience (all welcome). The lineup for FLUFF #3 features: fraz!! NEONshe!! sexwithmdonna!! Norrisette with special guests!! This will be a relaxed, social space where people can mingle and chat before, between and after the sets, meet friends, make new connections. There will be a bar on the night that also serves soft drinks. The event is free, but we suggest a donation of £4 on the door. Please speak to us if you want to get involved in future events.

I am excited to announce that I will be supporting 食品まつりa.k.a foodman (released under Hyperdub Records) at the White Hotel on April 25th for the #Fightback charity event with proceeds going to the Music Venue Trust. The theme will be transcen:dance – letting body movements and music frequences elevate your soul… Expect music that transcends sonic barriers, ascending into abstract, dancing patterns… Thank you Phantom.Limbo and solofemaleraver for making this happen! You can access the Resident Advisor event page to buy tickets here. and the Facebook event can be found here. See you there!
