    The Glade Area Glastonbury- A tribute to Andrew Weatherall.

    My contribution to the beautiful tribute to Andrew Weatherall which is unfolding nicely on @gladeareaglastonbury has just dropped on @Mixcloud.


    If you wish to mark Andrew’s memory we would be grateful for any donations made to charities that were important to him: Amnesty International, Multiple Sclerosis Society, Thrombosis UK, Crisis
    Please Donate here


    Always moving forward whilst nodding fondly at the past, seeking inspiration for our  journey into the future.



    It is a tall order trying to stitch together an hour and a half’s worth of music to pay tribute to one of dance music’s true geniuses. There are not enough hours available to cover the spectrum of sound that he mastered.  Andrew Weatherall was a wizard, a magician, a conductor of musical energy, the Guvnor. There is a lot of ridiculous hyperbole surrounding the art of Djing, but in Andrew’s case all the superlatives are deserved, his passion shone through every set he played, they were like rituals where real magic happened.


    His inspiration will continue to feed those fascinated by the alchemy of ‘acid house’ and the wonder of outsider music in all its forms. So, with that in mind I thought I would explore just a small corner of the musical galaxy, what Andrew would call ‘oompty boompty music’. He could bring the rave like no other, always looking for new sounds and obscure tracks to baffle and delight. I’m still struggling to find most of them after years of searching. This mix is a mixture of new tracks, because Andrew was an evangelist for the new, and older tracks that remind me of him. I’ve included a couple of numbers I made that Andrew took the time to call me about. It was a great buzz to get his feedback and to know he was into what you were doing. He was always encouraging and positive like that, as I’m sure countless producers will testify.


    In this particular potion you will find tunes and snippets from Andrew himself, a spot of lysergic boogie, a pinch of hypnotic trance dance, machine funk bangers, cosmic wigglers and all manner of galactic disco business. Transport yourself to the basement or field of your imagination. Until we meet again, thank you for everything my friend. X

    The launch of Formerlover.

    I’m very happy to announce a new musical project I have undertaken… and our first release.

    Formerlover are a duo of sleaze dub enthusiasts, in love with echo and bass. The brainchild of Sofia Hedblom, a singer and fashion stylist originally from west coast Sweden, and her partner the renowned music producer, dj, and artist Justin Robertson. They effortlessly blend elements of reggae and Lagos disco with the dark sonic underbelly of lo fi house, occupying the twilight region between a tropical sound system dance and an inner city basement, where nights turn into mornings and back again.
    Correction dub is a playful take on a late night chat line conversation, where humiliation and desire go hand in hand. Simultaneously seductive and sinister, the spacious frequencies bend as the hypnotic groove takes hold, transporting you to a sleazy, forbidden world where your soul is on the line.

    It comes as part of the excellent Viscera compilation ‘Galactic service broadcasting volume 1″. All profits go to the NHS charities together, urgent Covid- 19 appeal fund.
