I was recently interviewed by Imran Mirza for the Liberation Frequency online magazine:
Have you heard Ishfaq’s remix of Jazzanova’s ‘I Can See’?
I can’t think how many times I’ve said that over the past few weeks. I stumbled upon it myself via a mixtape which it totally stole the show on, and was blown away by the incredible new arrangement. there aren’t many that can claim to do justice to reworking a Jazzanova record, but my friends – Ishfaq is one of them.
I’ve spent the last while producing a new album by Stee Downes. It’s out now on Sonar Kollektiv, and it’s titled ‘All in a day‘.
All instruments were played by myself and Stee, and I did the final mixdowns too, which was a first for me so I learnt a hell of a lot from it! If you want to find out more about it, head over to Stee’s myspace page for a peak at some of the tracks, and if you like it you can buy it direct from Sonar Kollektiv here.
I also got asked to do a remix of ‘Put a little love in my soul’ for a 12″ in support of the album, which will also feature my extended version of ‘What is wrong with groovin’ – should be out November sometime on Sonar Kollektiv. Peep that below.
My new super fresh as a daisy 12″ is coming out the end of this month on Scribble Records called The Change EP. Featuring Sweden’s Kissey Asplund, New Zealand’s Adi Dick, and the UK’s Chef, plus a few other guests helping out.
“Hot, Hot, Hot ! Kissey sounds amazin’ on Call the Boss…great track, top groove…Acuzion is all about the programming…heavy (in a very nice way), Gilles will be all over this ! Change is soooo nice. What a voice, really works with the track and the lyrics are great. Clap that is prob my fave out the bunch…lovin the low slung jazz vibes on this. Strong package and one that certainly deserves to do well…” – Ste Hodge – Sick Trumpet
“Brilliant work. Dig Clap That – the Rhodes, the rap, the trumpet!! Title track Change also an incredibly, soulful number. Tinges of Fat Freddys Drop coming through here. This will most definently find it’s way into my box for those oozy moments on the dancefloor.” – Blair Stafford – Straight Up
“Liking the tunes…good stuff, playlisting Change on my life.fm show this week and I’m sure the others will get some spinnage in next few weeks too…” – Paddy Freeform – Universal Vibes
