The Night Bazaar – interview and mix

Screen Shot 2017-10-21 at 02.29.42

A few weeks ago I spoke to Ash from The Night Bazaar about music and life. This is one of the most honest and in-depth interviews I’ve done for ages (in other words, rambling a load of old shit) and we touched on all sorts of topics.

I also put together a new mix, featuring a collection of new music that excites me and of course a few old favourites. I feel like it’s one of the best mixes I’ve done for ages, I really enjoyed planning and mixing it. Have a read of the article, check the mix, dance to the new music….

Philth Tangent – live set from Sun and Bass

Tuesday night at Sun and Bass and I messaged Phil Tangent to ask if he wanted to get some food together. His reply: “Can’t mate – just found out I’m playing first set tonight. Fancy going b2b?”

Ambra Night is my favourite club in the whole world. Of course I wanted to play the set! 

So it turns out that our first set as Philth Tangent happened at Sun and Bass. What a way to kick things off. But when we got to Ambra Night it was already starting to rain, and the sound engineers were taping plastic sheets to the table above the decks! It was pretty mad playing at the beginning of a storm. They actually had to close the stage 15 minutes after we finished. The engineers were covering the decks with the sheets as much as possible, which is pretty confusing when you’re playing b2b on 3 decks. At one point the engineer had to wipe the rainwater off one of the decks – but it was still playing. Have a listen and see if you can spot it.

I’ve wanted to play at Ambra Night for years, and we were both really happy it was at Bailey’s night. Big thanks to all of you guys who danced in torrential rain to watch our debut Philth Tangent set – the first of many!
