It was great to be played on such a cool show today.
Mary Anne Hobbs played me after a beautiful piece of music Vessel has put out on Erased Tapes. She also chats to the author of ‘Every Song Ever: Twenty Ways to Listen in an Age of Musical Plenty’, Ben Ratiliff. This seems like an interesting book on a pivotal subject for me at the moment, so I shall be getting it and reading it!

A while ago back in March, I was invited down to Ujima FM for a radio interview.
Last night was the night booked in, I appeared on the 11 o clock subsession show with presenter Titus 12. It was actually my first radio interview so I was slightly nervous, I already know how difficult it is to talk about the music you make to people, but this was another level! It is very difficult to talk about what you do live on air, making sure you get the right words out and you dont end coming off wrong.. seeing as I felt as though it might go horribly wrong, or I might make some new words up on the spot , I think I stepped up to it and actually sounded pretty caszhe ( slang for ‘casual’ term, see Caszhe for full definition).
I got to bring a selection of tunes that I like and inspire me as well as have a little chat about what I do, and then a live mix..So there’s plenty in there for your ears.

Wicked. Thanks to Ujima FM and titus 12 for having me down really enjoyed visiting and my first radio interview!
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.
