Mix of the Month

I’m so happy that the School of Electronic Music has chosen mix as their Mix Of The Month. My mix will take you on a journey through distorted sounds, experimental field recordings and cutting-edge beats, drowned in an eerie, dark atmosphere. It contains tracks by left-field electronica producers who inspire me, four of which are from Manchester. They are very idiosyncratic in their approach, open and adventurous in their experimentation. Enjoy the sonic trip! The mix can be found here. Hope you enjoy!

Silver Pride Dj Set now online

My DJ Set for the first ever Silver Pride UK is live on Youtube now.

Silver Pride is ‘a culturally diverse and enriching programme of live performances, masterclasses and events to champion social inclusion and ensure elderly LGBT+ people are socially connected, celebrated and recognised for their contributions to culture and society.’

It was a pleasure to be involved and shout out to my housemates Timmy and Josh for dancing with me!

Live Stream presented by The Vale now available

Thank you to everyone who watched and listened to my live stream. Here is the video of my performance in case you missed it.

Thank you The Vale for providing a platform for me to perform and special thanks to Kate for organising and moderating the Facebook chat.

In my live stream, I used two images by two of my favourite visual artists. The incredible Volker Schütz provided the image in the bottom right corner entitled ‘Berührung’ (English: touch) which is also showcased at the Social Distancing Art Festival. The wonderful Violeta-inch Angelova stood model for this piece. In the top left corner you can see ‘Open Field’, a collaboration between the miraculous Bella Probyn and me, a collage between photography and poetry.

Reform Radio Takeover

I am grateful that Reform Radio let me take over their station last night.

You can listen to my takeover on Refom Radio’s website and on Mixcloud.

I presented my first two singles Air and Reform. Air uses field recordings of Manchester’s rain and comes with a windy instrumentation, whereas Reform contains field recordings of Manchester’s construction sites and comes with industrial drums and broken beats echoing urban spaces.

The other tracks were of producers that inspire me, mostly left-field electronica. These artists are all very idiosyncratic and think beyond genre. They are driven by passion for sound and a sense of adventure. I hope you will find them inspiring, too.

Second single ‘Reform’ out now!

My second single ‘Reform‘ is out now on all online music platforms. Whereas ‘Air’ uses field recordings of rain and explores windy and airy themes, ‘Reform’ contains field recordings of Manchester’s construction sites and comes with industrial sounding drums and broken beats echoing urban spaces. Volker Schütz contributed an artwork that serves as polar twin to the ‘Air’ artwork. This is why I decided to release both songs in succession and shortly after one another. I hope you enjoy the contrast in sound and image! X
