Quite often when people hear my music they’ll tell me it doesn’t drop. It doesn’t quite ‘go there’. I definitely agree with this. However, I used to want my music to drop, and after working for the past 6 months on my new material, and indeed developing a new sound, I’ve reached a musical understanding with myself, that the intention of it is to just teeter on the edge of going there, and not actually commit to becoming a dance track. It seems that my talent lies in composing tunes that flirt with the idea, but don’t take you there. Whether this is just a fancy disguise for being lazy, I am yet to find out.
I’ve had people draw different conclusions and make vastly different comparisons of my work, which I love. Its fantastic that people can all hear the same piece of music, but all have a different way of listening to it, and therefor have a different experience to the person sat next to them. So I thought i’d put a few songs/artists on here that people have mentioned being similar to me, so you can have a listen and completely agree or disagree, or remain indifferent to!
Arguably, those tracks do have very dance based elements. The music I like to reference and enjoy listening to is a mixture of full on dance tracks, and ambient/electronic soundscape pieces, which I think is how I arrive at the product I now have.
Its all quite exciting from here on in really. Although its taken what feels like a big chunk of my life to get this project finished, its finally there. I am so relieved I can draw a line under it, and move on to noisier and tastier ventures!
‘A Very New Everything’  will be released through Bit-Phalanx, watch this space for more info.
What a night! my first gig in London, also my first gig with Bit Phalanx. Amazing music and lovely peeps thanks!

David Bowie has just pulled a rabbit out of the hat with his new track.
I am very excited for 2013, having just read an article on Pitchfork about Baths, (one of my favourite chaps in the last few years) and his ventures into a new record. I’m still not remotely bored of his last project Cerulean, I’m still head over heels for the sounds he uses, and Im on the edge of my seat waiting for his next project.

Finally, I should mention I will be getting my newest project out there as well ( A Very New Everything ) . I haven’t finalised a date for this yet, but I have the tracks, they have their order, they are awaiting the finishing touches, and the artwork to be completed.
A Very New Everything will be available through Bit-Phalanx net label as a download.
Here is a snippit from one of the tracks.
Happy New Year.
Back in August I played a gig with Drawn Recordings, the night was blast. Since the show I have been chatting with some lovely chaps who run Bit-Phalanx a electronic music netlabel.
Here’s their latest podcast where you can listen to some rather tasty electronica, and they were kind enough to play my new song Ga Ga too.
