originalhedonism asked: how are youuu? :) just been reading this (kind of shitty and bitchy) article on mixmag, mentions you: /music/the-blog/things-people-say-to-pretend-they-know-about-dance-music was wondering if its true that you are "geting more bookings in the States" than in the UK now or are they chatting shit? XXX
Hi Hatty! I’m very well thank you, how are you? I’ve had quite a few people get in touch about that article today, mostly friends pointing out i’ve been mentioned - Which is great!
I don’t agree that America is ‘The new home of bass’, because i know quite a few countries and clubs where the low-frequency sound is thriving, and i’ve played in some of those clubs and countries this year with great turn-outs and reactions to the music, but Seb is right to mention America as there is a strong scene out there at the moment and every successful underground low-frequency music producer seems to either be about to do a full U.S tour (Like i am in April) or is just coming off a successful U.S tour.
It isn’t necessarily true that i’m getting ‘More bookings in the States than in U.K’ - I’ve been playing outside of the U.K regularly now for a while, everywhere from Turkey to Croatia to Belgium to Sweden, and i’ve only played a few shows in America, but the tour in April will even things out - I’m fitting in quite a few shows in the two weeks, which is down to how hungry America is for my sound (Thankfully), so… What Seb is saying is correct.
Why do you ask? Are you thinking of moving out there to join in the fun?

One of my favourite artists ’Irrelevant’ is releasing a 12” album sampler in November on one of the most inspiring labels in underground music, Kokeshi. It features a remix i did of his forthcoming track ‘Moments’. If you don’t already know about Irrelevant, he makes really breathtaking deep, dark, emotional music. Always blows me away. Very proud to contribute to his album sampler.
Thanks so much to Dubs Alive for sending me this dope limited edition hand-built dub siren from their factory in San Francisco! Can’t wait to test this thing out at my shows in the future. Introducing my first ‘live’ element. Go check them out: http://www.facebook.com/dubsalive (at San Francisco, U.S)
Back in the BBC Studios! I’m live on BBC Introducing tonight w/ Sean McGinty about 9pm to give you my next few tour dates and play you a brand new track ‘Prayer’. Listen in on FM if you’re in England or on BBC iPlayer http://www.bbc.co.uk #bbcintroducing
Wow. South Club. Just Skank. YES! Thank you … Great to be back. Amazing show!
THIS is a test press I’m proud of. Personally I think this is my strongest release to date. Coming very soon…

The artwork for a certain forthcoming Kokeshi 12” really is incredible. The record features a remix by me as you can see … Exciting!
