Old’s Cool!

Well, that was quite a summer.

As some of you will already know, I wasn’t lying when I said that AwamuTogether was going to be a summer highlight. Not only were good times had by all, but £15,000 was raised for the charity – an amazing feat for a first attempt. All indications are that it will happen again next year too. Hats off to all those that made it happen. The money raised is already being put to good use and changing lives.

Now that they’ve had a good rinsing on Mixcloud, both of my Together promo mixes are now available to download. The first one is on the groovy side, while the second instalment gets to the point quicker & bangs a bit harder!

(finally) Got it Together


[right-click the links (not the Mixcloud players) & “save as”]

Lots of people have been asking me about the N-Joi refix I threw together for “Twogether”. It was just made on-the-fly and so was a little rough around the edges. I tidied it up, added some extra production and there’s an exclusive blog-only download link here.

Latitude with the Disco Shed was hot, humid, and brilliant as ever. The same can’t be said for Leeds, where the weather presented some challenges, but it was great to sign off the season with Bestival, where, Saturday aside, the weather was much kinder.

Now summer is done & dusted, I have a bit more time for music. Lots of tunes that were “nearly there” are even more nearly there now, so stay tuned for some fresh mixtapes & original sounds in the coming weeks & months…

edit: I’ve just been notified that some of the download links in the mixtape archive (Bangers 1-6 specifically) are dead. I’ll fix those in the coming days.


Summer vibes!


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.

Beastie Boys – Nonstop Disco Powerpack (Del Gazeebo Refix)

I’ve received a fair few messages asking for some of the edits & refixes I make exclusively for the Bangers mixtapes.  Usually these are put together “on the fly” while I’m making the mixtape, just moving things around, stretching, editing & adding a few extra layers of production here & there.  In this case, once the mixtape was finished, I subsequently went back & did a bit more additional production before making this mixdown with clean ins & outs, so this version is somewhat superior, and a bit longer.

100 free downloads enabled today.

The original refix is on the latest Bangers mixtape.

RIP MCA.  You were my favourite.


Jungle Brother (Del Gazeebo’s Suburban Makeover)

There were so many comments after I included Aphrodite‘s “BM Funkster” in the last Bangers mixtape, I thought it might be a good idea to shake it up a bit for a festival rinse out.  Put together pretty much on the road and in a hurry, it’s not perfect by any means, but it certainly did the job this summer.
