Well a month has gone by since the last show, which feels like ages so I’m raring to go for tomorrow’s installment of Void Radio on http://brap.fm from 8pm UK time. It’s almost my birthday so I’ll be having a few beers and spinning some classic house/trance/techno alongside the absolute cream of the month’s new releases in epic breaks and chunky progtech. I do hope you can join in the celebration

While I’m here, a quick heads up about some gigs of interest in the Southampton area. First up on Saturday 13th June that bastion of fluorescent hedonism PSYCHEDELIC SATURDAY returns to the Hobbit. I will hopefully be playing, dependent on babysitter so TBC….
I am however definitely on the bill for the latest installment of the now legendary VOID VS BRAP charity alldayers in aid of Oxfam, on Sat 4th July and also at The Hobbit. Loads of great DJs lined up for this (check the flyers here) and these parties are always off the hook so save that date, more details to follow.
Hopefully see you in the chatroom tomorrow!

This coming Friday, 6th March, you can catch me playing at an excellent night in Bristol called WaxOnWaxOff, which takes place at a great little venue called Chesters on Frogmore Street. I had a wicked time at the last WO:WO (just as a punter) so I’m reallly looking forward to this one.
The music policy is a heady mixture of fat breaks and twisty psytrance, so of course I’ll be concentrating on psybreaks
Shimon (RAM/FingerLickin) is headlining, with support from Dexter Styles, Mishima and Tethis. It runs 10pm-4am and admission is only £2 b4 11, £4 after.
Hope to see you there

Don’t forget… n e x t w e e k e n d Bank Holiday Sunday 25th May 2008 everyone within a hundred miles of Southampton is instructed to converge on The Hobbit pub in that town at precisely 1pm (don’t be late or you’ll miss my set!) for 12 hours of massive musical mayhem and good times galore.
I’ve been given the honour of starting the proceedings, 1-2 in the afternoon. There will be barbecue there with good food, so no need to have lunch before you come down. You should obviously expect to be dancing for the whole of my set 8-), but then you’ll have worked up a proper appetite and you’ll appreciate that nice charred burger all the more.
And of course, it’s all for a good cause: Everyone involved in putting on the party is giving their services and equipment for free, so all proceeds and donations go straight to Oxfam to help those whose need is so unimaginably greater than ours. We get a really great party. They get access to fresh water, or a goat, or emergency rations, and the support of an organisation which continues to campaign for a fairer world, for the rights of the world’s poorest people to clean water, sufficient food, shelter, healthcare, knowledge… the essentials of survival that we take for granted.
