As we approach the start of the holidays and the end of the year, I just wanted to thank you all for your support in 2013. Having taken 7 years to write ‘Apollo‘, your reactions and feedback to it have been affirming and heart warming. Creating ‘Ollopa‘ was equally rewarding, as it was such a pleasure to have my friends and colleagues add their magic to my music.

The last batch of remixes is due out this Saturday (21st) to mark the winter Solstice, with pre-orders available now from Bandcamp. The ‘For Such a Time‘ EP features remixes from three excellent UK based producers: Kuba provides a dreamy, Zero 7-esque version with floating synths and a rolling bassline ; System 7 add their distinctive twisting and playful style to the track, creating an ethereal vibe around a distinctly feel-good rhythm; while Animat’s take is more of a deep and dubby affair, awash with echo and delay, forming a lush and warm space.

There are a few gigs on the horizon with the final show of the year happening at Galleria in Naples, Italy on December 23rd. Mid January I am off to Australia to play 2 sets (1 uptempo and 1 chilled) at Rainbow Serpent Festival on the 24th plus a side show in Melbourne’s Northcote Social Club on the 23rd, with support from Deep Fried Dub, Dom Hogan and Sunsaria. Then in February I’m off to Panama to play at the Geoparadise Festival.I should have some exciting news for you in January about not only the 20th anniversary of ‘Maya’ (hasn’t time flown by!) but also the first non Banco release on Disco Gecko Recordings – the debut release by my compadre Dr Trippy.
