Here’s some record keeping me happy on this young Mayday afternoon..
The first of our Chestnut parties this year takes us back to the Globe where we have invited Auntie Flo to come and Dj for us. After listening to many of his mixes and records it was hard not to book this guy to come to the northeast.
Auntie Flo [Kompakt, Huntley & Palmers]
Ian Blevins [We Love]
Dan Evans [6th Finger/Jaunt]

Here’s a whole host of mixes that should get you in the mood.[soundcloud url="http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/70341481" params="" width=" 100%" height="166" iframe="true" /] [soundcloud url="http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/26785497" params="" width=" 100%" height="166" iframe="true" /]
The other week i was invited to Manchester to play at Bump at Joshua Brookes in Manchester. A top night was had, so for those who weren’t in attendance or for those who were and wish to relive the night, or simply fill in the gaps the set was recorded. Here it is..[soundcloud url="http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/79389637" params="" width=" 100%" height="166" iframe="true" /]
Last week the lovely We Love lot uploaded a mix I have done, as I do every year, of alot of music I’ve enjoyed at vairous stages throughout the summer. You can visit this post here. Of course there’s too many to put up, but what is left is a selection of music that has recieved alot of airplay throughout the months of May to October. Each track evoking particular memories of time and space in an order that I hope makes sense to those listening from start to finish. Without further adue you can stream the mix on soundcloud here.

Don’t forget you can also listen to my live set on the terrace at We Love below also. [soundcloud url="http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/66217542" iframe="true" /]
After we invited the Butter Side up chaps to host our Room 2 for our birthday we’re delighted to be invited down to play at their event at the Wire in Leeds on Friday 14th December. We will also be alongside Toby Tobias. Ace DJ, ace producer. Very much looking forward to this.

Here’s some footage of the lads closing the our birthday event. Excuse the footage, but its RAW!
At the beginning of Summer 2011, Jem Haynes moved to the flat directly above me. This was soon the beginning of regular coffee’s and music making sessions. After getting involved in a series called Treme, our Second Line guise was born as we sought inspiration in a lot of the songs, drums and rhythms from the music in the series for an EP.
Over a year and a half has gone by and in that time has seen these tracks tested around the globe, including We Love at Ministry of sound and Space in Ibiza where they have worked to full effect on a weekly basis. This debut EP is also the first release on Jem Haynes new Colour Series label. More music is in the pipeline currently from ourselves, Jem and Mike Peters. Check the Colour Series soundcloud for more
Positive feedback so far has come from Jozif, Orde Meikle, Gabriel Ananda, Nic Fanciulli, Luciano, Pete Tong, Sasha, C. Von Stroke, Bookashade, Chris Fortier, Anderson Noise, Dibby Dougherty, Benji Candelario, Lee curtis, Sander Kleinenberg, Rich Hawtin, Stephan Bodzin, ATFC, Tom Thorpe and Andrew Grant.
Here’s clips from two tracks on the EP. Click on the beatport link above for all of them.

Here’s a video I found also that someone posted of me playing Big Chief at for We Love at Green Valley in Brazil.
Here is the first two hours of my set at We Love this summing on the terrace. Had huge fun being back in that room again and was glad to be leaving it full when I finished. Following myself was Technasia, James Zabiela and Groove Armada. Not bad company to be in.[soundcloud url="http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/66217542" iframe="true" /]
Here’s a few bits off the top of my head that will be taking me through November
After an excellent birthday bash at the Globe with Mano Le Tough and Butterside Up we hosting our first event at the Ktichen at the second time of asking. Travelling up we have Greymatter from the ever impressive Wolf Music stable who’s been on fire of late. Alongside ourselves we have asked Liam Vance, Kris Berry and ladys favourites RuDog Billionaire and BigL to hold down our cosy second room.

A live set recorded at Lo Cura including any bumps, scrapes, daft sounds, errors. Hopefully this won’t spoil the enjoyment of the music it contains and the order this music is put in.
