Summer vibes!

AwamuBanner

I know it doesn’t much feel like summer yet, but perhaps this Pluto Shervington refix will do the trick? People have been pestering me for this for a long time now, and the wait is finally over. Downloads are go for a limited time only. You snooze, you lose!

Summer is starting to shape up nicely, and not least because I’ve been asked to get involved with Together – a small, intimate and friendly party in Wiltshire on the first weekend of August. Good times, for a good cause in good company is what it’s all about as far as I’m concerned. I’ve always preferred smaller parties to huge festivals (and unfortunately I’m not getting any younger) so I’m really looking forward to it. Fun for kids of all ages – even my age!

You should come – but don’t sleep, because tickets are strictly limited. Line up, ticket info & everything else you need to know is all on their website, alongside some information about Awamu, the very good cause this event is in aid of. Everyone involved will be volunteering their services free of charge to maximise the charitable benefit. Names continue to be added to the line-up, but regardless of who’s on it, the vibe and company is guaranteed to be spot on.

Awamu Radio has started featuring some of the artists that will be performing at the party & you can click here for my offering – a 72 minute ride through the good stuff, with the usual disinterest in genres. There’s only one genre I’m interested in – GOOD. With the Bangers series currently on haitus I had a bit of a backlog of good stuff & I did my best to cram in as many of them as I could. As it is, there’s still a crate of stuff waiting to be dropped. Cold this mean a glorious return of the Bangers? We’ll see.

You want a download? Buy a ticket & we’ll talk!

Loads more cool stuff happening this summer too – stay tuned.
