It is AMAZING to finally share this with everyone as I found out in January that i’d be playing Glastonbury Festival.
I am particularly excited to play this festival, not because of Adele.., or because of it being full of lots and lots of people, but mainly because when I told my Dad he stopped dead on the phone and when completely quiet, and when I told my mum she shrieked so much I think my earpiece in my phone broke.
Glastonbury is a great festival, one of many great festivals, but it is the only one that spanned generations and countries enough for my Grandma to be congratulating me, knowing the importance of it, as well as my relatives in Australia. and for that experience, I am really really grateful. All of the hard work my family have put into supporting what I do, and I’ve finally been able to turn around and say, i’m doing something which you can understand the cultural significance of. It’s a really bloody nice feeling.

On Friday I had the pleasure of going to watch Baths (Will Wiesenfeld) at The Oval Space, in London.
I performed one of my first ever gigs supporting Baths, in Bristol’s Fire station, and felt it was necessary to see what he was up to. (That and that I pretty much got through 2010 by listening to his album Cerulean).
He has a new album out now, Obsidian (2013), which is what most of his set what about on Friday.
He wore shorts. The music was top.
As I’ve been a bit quiet lately, I thought it might be nice to do a little post update thing.
I’ve been busy writing a new track, a snippet of which has appeared in a few of my you tube videos and my new set. . seems to have had a positive response so I’m working on getting that done and ready to release as a single along with a secret track that i’ve held back from putting online.. but has been very popular live.
I have been fortunate enough to be asked to play a few events over the next week.
- Firstly Im playing a set at Drawn Recordings All Day event on Bank Holiday Monday 4th June, check out info here.
Its a drawing musicing and pizza eating event followed by another bank holiday we’re all being a bit spoilt arent we.
- Secondly Im playing a set at a new event by a new team of peeps which im really looking forward to.
On the 8th of June I’ll be doing an hours set at Timbuk2 for a night put on by Ilkin. Link to the event here.Bringing us a night of fresh contemporary electronic sounds. Ilkin have put on another fantastic line up, at the top of if we have the likes of ELIPHINO. The unbelievable success of his latest ‘somethinksounds’ release has shown that this is set to be a massive year for this young producer.I am very excited to see this night and am so glad to be on the line up with such great artists.
- Thirdly, 10th of June, Sunday. The Croft. My second time at the croft will be a good one, I’ll be in the back room this time allowing a more easy set up of projections. I’ll be joining these fellows on stage: Vibratronic, Microdeform, Spaces Between. Tickets £3 advance, available here.
So thats (nearly) it for me for June. Apart from this I will be doing a radio interview for Ujima FM, as well as a live set on air.. date and link to listen coming soon!
Big up Queenie.
This week i’ve got the exciting opportunity to play at Bristol’s Thekla (for those non Bristol people Thekla is a club/venue on a boat, with a famous banksy piece on the side of the boat).
I am getting the opportunity to play on Thekla’s stage which has had some huge and respectable artists. The last gig I went to there was the amazing Caribou a year or so back.
