Fab Free Image 3
Haven’t done an update for ages and haven’t done a Fab Free Three for a while but a bit of Bank Holiday free time (OK I’ll stop using that word soon!!) meant I could get on the case and bring you some nice tunes for you to download for GRATIS!!

Kicking things off with a bouncing bassy offering featuring the talented Jamie George, he of fantastic hair AND voice…..

Movely swiftly on to this cool remix by one of Belfast’s finest, Jay Kay, who’s been grafting over there for many moons. He serves up a really nice remix of Dirty Vegas here…..

Lastly here’s something seriously sexy and downtempo as Larse remixes rising talent Banks, who I recently saw in concert. This track highlights her emo R&B vocal leanings set to a groovy deep house drum track….

Are You A Robot?

Another weekend gone, another DJ gig and another ponder. And we know what my pondering leads to don’t we? Yep, a few paragraphs of me waffling nonsense (and a little sense) and hoping you lot will play along.

Too Old To Rave??

A work mate joked to me the other day “Aren’t you a bit too old to be gallivanting around night clubs?” It was one of those comments that was said in jest, but had an undertone that was deadly serious. You’ve probably guessed that I’m a bit of a thinker by now (well, when it suits me) and that comment bounced round my head for the rest of the day. It disappeared for a few days and then I ended up playing at Warehouse for Kinky Malinki and one particular clubber brought that comment flooding back, so I thought I’d write about it.

You’d think that over fifteen years in the game, I’d be able to avoid being let down on DJ bookings? Of course there are always occasions when the party just can’t go ahead. Plenty of people were wondering what would happen to the Hard Times party with Todd Terry over the Bank Holiday weekend when Cable was closed down by National Rail out of the blue. In that case, the show did go on but things like club licensing issues can mean that DJ bookings get cancelled. When agents are involved, they build in cancellation fees into bookings or often have the entire fee upfront, so you could say that it’s ‘OK’ for named DJs, but what about the grass roots gang who don’t have agents?

So, I was in Slovenia at the weekend playing at an Absolut Vodka sponsored bash for Kinky Malinki. Apparently it was quite the social gathering for the cool bods in Ljubljana (it’s taken quite a few trips to learn how to spell that off by heart!!), so much so that it ended up on Slovenian National TV. Special prize if you can work out what’s being said?
