Playing at The Canteen on Thursday with Jilk.
A night of electronic music at Bristol’s trendy flan selling-organic beer drinking -sofa sitting-vintage wearing- tea shop, the Birdcage on Corn Street.
There are three acts playing, myself, Jilk and T-toe. Jilk and Ttoe have known and worked with London’s underground electronica label Bit-Phalanx for many years, and it was actually Jilk himself who spotted me at a Drawn Recordings night (funnily enough sharing the stage with T-toe), who asked me if i’d be interested in coming on board. Last October saw the first label release I’ve done which was through Bit-Phalanx. Essentially this night is three electronica artists playing out for no real reason other than because we love gigging. We are so excited to all be on the same show for once, (as we are endlessly supporting each other at live shows), so expect a lot of energy, a lot of foot tapping come body moving, and i’ll be there with Jason who provides mesmerising visuals to my live shows.
Its £3 which means, for those of you not so great at maths, £1 per artist.
I feel this is a reasonable deal, and if you feel otherwise, perhaps you should come in and heckle?

Audiophiles christmas party
A new Bristol collaboration coming your way.
On Friday I had the pleasure of going to watch Baths (Will Wiesenfeld) at The Oval Space, in London.
I performed one of my first ever gigs supporting Baths, in Bristol’s Fire station, and felt it was necessary to see what he was up to. (That and that I pretty much got through 2010 by listening to his album Cerulean).
He has a new album out now, Obsidian (2013), which is what most of his set what about on Friday.
He wore shorts. The music was top.
This weekend, tomorrow, I will be joining Jilk and supporting The Crisis Project at their launch party at Cafe Kino.
Its at 8pm, free entry, and a lovely little venue.
Those of you that came to my record launch would have seen The Crisis Project play a lovely set (and heard Jilk do the sound). Most of you have since asked me about them, where you can buy their stuff, listen to more, and watch their hypnotic visuals. (Cafe Kino is the answer to that). But also here’s some links and stuff to ear up.
See you there.
Ive moved facebooks, so please come join me on my new page.
