Sometimes its not the DJs that make the night, many times its the person who had the wisdom to put them on that night, in that venue , at that time in front of that crowd. That kind of organisation is a skill, something to be admired. Looking at the London events I see the same names over and over again in the DJ world guesting, I'd say hand on heart there are very few brave promoters out there willing to mix the London scene up by involving DJs who may not usually play together. This post is partially inspired by RA's willingness to put Donato Dozzy and Prins Thomas b2b on their own off-Sonar event, and MoMA's recent PS1 announcement of their line ups: http://www.momaps1.org/warmup This kind of adventurism is inspiring, we all know that dance music comes from the same roots, we all know that in the early days of modern nightlife reggae shared the speakers next to house and disco within minutes, yet nowadays there seems to be very few DJs, let alone promoters that are willing to put people together to share these experiences. So I am calling on someone, a brave someone, to break the ranks and put a night together in London that can cross genres and move people, not techno people, not house people, not rnb or soul people, but people...

We Love Opening Party @ Space 8/10 Nice crowd, Innervisions room started ok then went trancey, luckily Carl Craig and Derrick May smashed it. Not as busy as I thought it would be... Cocoon Opening Party @ Amnesia 5/10 Pretty lifeless, wish I had seen Vath instead of Villalobos now Womb @ Space ?/10 Can't remember much of it! La Troya Opening Party @ Amnesia 8/10 Had great fun at this, DJ wasn't prominent, it wasn't about the music, more about the show... Kekahuma @ Space 9/10 Back to space again! MK played a great set, mainly his own tracks, freakin you went down very well... Steve Lawler came on and actually didn't bore me so that was a bonus...
Hi all... been a while since I posted, a trip to ibiza and the regular radio slot got in the way! Been sucked into entering another mix competition so it would be great if you could take a listen!

A big thanks to all those people that listen to my mixes :-) I really must do another one soon - the live one from SEED has been getting a lot of love from all quarters, its really representative of how I like to mix things up genre wise so I'm really happy with it...
I'm playing this Friday at the Egg on York Way behind Kings X Station, come on down :-) Not sure what time i'm playing but it will be a good night - not only will you get to see me play but there are some other names as well!
