Thanks for all the great feedback for the Kintsugi EP – really glad you’re enjoying it.

To repeat a few points I made on social media in response to questions about the release: Kintsugi does not mark the end of beat-led Banco – I honestly don’t know when, but I’m pretty sure I’ll be making more uptempo music before too long; at some point some or all of these tracks will make it on to an album in a physical format, either as they are or as different mixes, however, given the lack of time I currently have to focus on music, this could happen at any time in the next two years, so I’m afraid it could be a long wait. (If you haven’t heard it already, Kintsugi is available direct from my Bandcamp or from all major download or streaming sites via

I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be playing a downtempo show at Frome’s 23 Bath Street on Saturday December 19th ((My first live show since February! and hopefully the first of many). The gig is limited to 50 tickets only and will be all seated and compliant with local restrictions. Find out more on Facebook and get tickets from Skiddle. I also have shows pencilled in for next year, and will let you know more nearer the time as and when they get the go ahead.

Finally, my label, Disco Gecko Recordings, are having their winter sale, with most CDs discounted to £6, £10 or £12, including some of the limited edition 20th Anniversary releases. We’ve also created an ambient bundle to help soothe sore heads that includes the two “Strange-Eyed Constellations” compilations I created plus LO18’s mystical “Maa” and Andrew Heath’s sublime “Europa” albums – all for £15 + p&p. You can see the whole list on the Disco Gecko store

Wishing you the best over the holidays
