Time for some more original music.  Been working on this tune for a loooong time. Started this is Reason way back and finally got it together in Ableton recently (i.e. this year). BTW, my work-rate is only going to slow down…

Anyway, this is a scratchy techno track, influenced by the sound of morse code (no, seriously).  And you should download it before I ruin it with this description:

I submitted the following mix to BBC Radio Scotland for a competition they ran in April 2001… and won.  The prize was to have it broadcast on one of their shows.  Would you have given me the prize?  Have a listen and decide for yourself…

Wee Groove details

by on Oct.24, 2008, under gigs

I’ve mentioned before about “We Dance, Wee Groove”, and posted a mix.  To recap, I’ve been DJing at a music and dance event for under fives (and associated adults).  The concept has developed from a ‘baby rave’ which took place at the Imaginate Festival in Edinburgh last year.  It has elements of performance, interaction and a club event, with music, lights, dancers and video projections.

Following on from four sessions for nursery schools, there will be three shows for the general public on Saturday 1 November at the Scottish Youth Theatre.  They will take place at 10.30am, 1.00pm and 3.00pm.

We’ve been rehearsing over the past week (courtesy of Dance House) and have moved the production forward considerably since the Edinburgh gigs earlier this year.  We’ve worked hard on getting the music right and developed the dancing.  I’ll also be playing guitar and scratching as part of the show.  I can’t wait to see and hear the results in action.

We Dance, Wee Groove

by on Aug.03, 2008, under mixes

Following my involvement in We Dance Wee Groove at the Imaginate Festival, Edinburgh in May, I am pleased that we will be staging similar events in Glasgow, on 30/31 October and 1 November.  I’ll post again soon with the exact details.

For now, you can enjoy this (slightly distorted) recording, from the last show in Edinburgh.

Wee Dance, Wee Groove (Sunday 2pm)

I started recording about 10 mins in. The signal is from the DJ mixer (so no percussion or crowd noise) but gives a good representation of the records played.
