Out now on Lyase Recordings is my remix of Whitesquare’s ‘Heartbeat’. It’s a fantastic EP and was extremely glad to be asked to give my interpretation of the original. This one is def a track for the early morning I think.
It also has an ace remix of the other track on the EP, ‘Last Seen’ by Dar Shirazi. Go check it out here
After doing the rounds with a chosen few folk the last few month these tracks now see the light of day on Lovefingers fantastic ESP Institute. Given the quality of output on this label I’m extremely proud to be able to release music with them.
So far it’s gained support from Bicep, Young Marco, Moscoman, Man Power, Hammer, Bird Of Paradise, PBR Streetgang to name a few of the good folk giving it a lot of support.
It was first played to the masses at Burning Man be Lovefingers which you can check in this ace video around 39 minutes, though it’s worth listening and watching to the entire thing

We’ve decided to release a few of our Al Gobi bits via bandcamp. These are tracks that we’ve been sitting on for a while and thought they should be out there in the light of day for people to hopefully enjoy. This first EP is ideal for warm summer days and nights we think. Hope you like it.
Thanks to David Kenney for the artwork and Rob Small for the mastering.
