I’m excited to announce i’ll be playing a show to mark 25 years since Massive attack’s album Blue Lines was released. I’ll be collaborating with Jilk as part of a one off performance where we will reimagine four of the tracks from the album, at Bristol’s independent cinema The Cube. More info below..
BBC Introducing in the West presents a night of music, spoken word and film, celebrating the influence of Massive Attack’s seminal album Blue Lines on the culture of modern Bristol. Featuring new local musicians Andy Oliveri, Jilk, Kayla Painter and ThisisDA as well as spoken word artists Sally Jenkinson, Stephanie Kempson and Vanessa Kisuule, the gig will take place the night before Massive Attack’s live return to the city. There will also be an exclusive showing of a BBC documentary on the making of Blue Lines. Oh, and Sam Bonham and Richard Pitt from BBC Introducing in the West will be broadcasting the whole thing!
I thought it was time to put out a Remix collection.
So here it is, just in time for Christmas, a three track free EP.
I’ve remixed Bristol musicians and explored styles I don’t usually fully immerse myself in with my original music. close your eyes and turn up the volume.
Playing at The Canteen on Thursday with Jilk.
This week is a busy one for me.
I’m excited to do my second performance as part of a new project (Only You Can Reset It) tonight, at The Island, Bristol.
Only You Can Reset it first appeared in October 2013 as part of a pop up record shop, and are returning with a fuller sound and a more developed set. We are Kayla Painter and Jon Worsley, and we take influence from all the music people. People have said it sounds like: experimental cheesecake, Modeselector, Thom Yorke, Lakota @ 3am, January never ends so stay indoors and make some sweet music. Happy with the feedback we have received we’re looking to expand on what we’re doing and you’ll hear more from us very soon.
If your intrigued to hear what KP and Jilk sound like in a lasagne together, come along to the Island tonight. Its free entry, suggested donation of £3 is welcome but not forced, and its not deemed (even by our social standards) as rude if you don’t want to donate.
You’ll also be delighted to hear some experimental auditory ness from Seth Cooke & Dominic Lash, and Timothy C Holehouse & Raxil4. Henry Lee Colins (aka Shitmat) has curated the night and will be joining in opening with a half an hour set.
Hope to see you there.
Times as follows:
1800-1830 – Shitmat
1830-1915 – Only You Can Reset it
1930-2000 – Seth Cooke and Dominic Lash
2015-2100 – Timothy C Holehouse and Raxil4
Only you can reset it are Kayla Painter and Jon Worsley.
A joint project between two Bristol based musicians, working with organic and electronic sounds.
The duos live work is largely improvisational and experimental – bringing a range of textures, layers and sounds and churning them into a dizzying mix of genre and form.

This weekend, tomorrow, I will be joining Jilk and supporting The Crisis Project at their launch party at Cafe Kino.
Its at 8pm, free entry, and a lovely little venue.
Those of you that came to my record launch would have seen The Crisis Project play a lovely set (and heard Jilk do the sound). Most of you have since asked me about them, where you can buy their stuff, listen to more, and watch their hypnotic visuals. (Cafe Kino is the answer to that). But also here’s some links and stuff to ear up.
See you there.
