Reckommended Records – March 2011

I used to review breaks for the Night Times, but it’s on hiatus for the forseeable, so i thought i’d start my own reviews on here.
I find that i spend at least a day or two a week digging for and listening to literally hundreds of tracks, plus i’m getting sent loads of great promos every week from the kind people at the promo agencies and labels, alongside all the rss feeds i’m subscribed too, so i figured i need a written outlet in order to help get this music …

New radio show – April 18th 2011

So i posted about rhubarb radio recently which has been the home for our Mr Elephant Radio Show for around 3 years. The show has evolved since its early start (as has my presenting thankfully and has all reached a point i feel really happy with.

When i started Mr Elephant radio we were running 3 different type of events every month, which gave  a great reason to showcase the 2 sides of my music collection (live and djed). Ever since i moved focus from the Mr …

Rhubarb Radio V3

Over the last couple of years, I’ve posted a lot of rhubarb radio shows but realised i haven’t ever blogged about the station itself! Its currently moving into a exciting new phase, and there’s been some unfortunate hearsay floating around, so i thought it’d be good to shed some light on whats going on.

I should start with that things are moving so quickly that this post may be out of date already, (and i may have got some details wrong), but here it is as far as i see.
You …

A few djing videos

To date i’ve never asked a promoter for a gig, but this year i’m looking to really push things forward and start playing further afield, so i had a go at writing an EPK electronic press kit  inspired by this post from dj tech tools.
I’ve been on a mission for a few years now in order to get to a place where i feel comfortable  adapting to any dancefloor and get the same level of response as i was getting on the breaks floors. I also wanted to be able …

A / V Collaborations for 2011

As well as the musical collaborations i’m equally as excited about collaborating with 2 of my favourite Vj’s in 2011. I’ve worked consistently with both Liam (Blendstate) and Tony (The Lab) ever since we met at Project X (Tony) & Mr Elephant (Liam) in 2007, and although we’ve collaborated on a lot of events and gigs together w’eve only really done one off creative collaborations and never really worked on something long term.

So a couple of months before xmas we’ve been talking about really evolving something on the audio visual …

Mia & Mallory Cat

We decided to get a cat the other day. Literally the day after, a friend of ours posted a message asking if anyone would like a kitten.
Turned out it was also a friend who was looking to house two sister kitty kats so here they are.

On the right (above) is Mia and Mallory on the left. Mallory is a natural born killer and Mia is a lot more into luxury hence the names.

I’ve never had a cat before…always figured i was more a dog person…but turns out i’m both!.. a …

Musical collaborations for 2011

I’ve been taking 6/12 months off to get some groundwork done, so i can really concentrate on my music and djing in 2011, and i’m pleased to say there’s already 3 collaborations on the horizon, all of which i’m really looking forward to!

One is with one of my favourite producers, another is with my 2 favourite vjs (i’ll write a seperate post for that soon), and the 3rd is a very recent one with a very talented vocalist, so i thought i’d blog a little bit about who they are …
