Blog

A place for the other things i do outside of music. Generally broken down into things i do & things i find useful. Could be posts on productivity, events in birmingham, music making, dj technology, web design tips, awareness, politics, spirituality, funny stuff..all that kind of thing.

Djing

All blog posts related to my own Djing. Generally broken down into sub categories that i hope will be of interest. Radio shows, Dj Charts, Gig Lists, music / artists to check out, & anything useful i find related to the art of djing.

Events

All past posts & videos related to the events Mr Elephant, Rockfall, Inter-course, Headway & Project X Presents, co-promoted up til the hiatus with links to all artists involved.

Music

Starting to feel comfortable with what im producing and about to embark with a new setup and workflow. Wanted to put out a short ep of previous ideas which is up for free download via the newsletter

Workshops

I deliver music tech workshops to particpants of all ages in a host of environments working with various other artforms. I only started this year, so there’s not many posts, but hopefully the posts give a good idea. More information is on the dedicated website – Reckorder.com.
