Review of the year, 2015
Well, it’s been a pretty nuts year. I started as a dabbling bedroom producer and occasional, moderately reluctant DJ; the year finished with me full-time pro in the mobile DJ market and with a CD release and BBC Introducing Artist of the Month under my belt as a producer. And some live shows, too! Just by looking…
Artist of the Month!
BBC Coventry & Warwickshire Introducing announced me as “Artist of the Month” for December on the show tonight! For a change, I actually heard the show as it was broadcast (I was in the car, travelling between gigs) – first time I’ve heard one of my own tunes on FM radio for a while! You…

If you’ve not tuned in to BBC Coventry & Warwickshire Introducing before, it’s well worth a listen – lots of excellent local talent on there,…
BBC1 Proms – Faithless’ “Insomnia”
Saw this posted by a mate on Facebook – made all the hairs on the back of my neck stand up straight away. Pete Tong and the Heritage Orchestra – not a bad combination for a remix at all!
More local talent
Pedro Jenko is an electronic music producer from Warwickshire, I always enjoy hearing his material when it’s played on BBC Introducing Coventry & Warwickshire (usually this happens when I’m listening in to see if my latest is on – call me self-serving, fine, it goes with the territory). Anyway… Pedro Jenko. Go listen. Now.
