Psychemagik Edit

2.Mink & Shoes

I first met Dan McLewin and Tom Coveney from Psychemagik when we were on the same line-up at Fabric in London at the start of 2011. They’d just pressed up their now classic edit of ‘Everywhere’ by Fleetwood Mac, and they’d subsequently credit Tom Middleton and myself with helping the record blow up big style on the following summer’s UK festival circuit, as well as over in Croatia at the Garden Festival, where it quickly gained anthemic status.

10 Greg Wilson & Derek Kaye Remixes Mixed

Remixed by Greg Wilson & Derek Kaye

With all the things I want to do, something always has to give, it’s an ongoing juggling act. By 2012 I was flat out, not only with the DJ side of things, but the blog had really taken off and had begun to take up a lot more time than I’d initially envisaged. On top of this I was still no closer to my aim of moving back into production and developing my own recording projects – a long process which is finally coming to fruition this year, with the first releases on my label, Super Weird Substance, due ahead of the summer months (the blog itself having had to take more of a back seat whilst we pushed this through). So back there in 2012 the only thing to do was stop taking on remixes for a while, just to help clear a bit of space in my world and work out where my priorities lay moving forward. My remixes up to this point can all be found here:

Ten Years Of Tirk

Tirk Records - 10 Years 2004-2014

Back in 2004 Sav Remzi, then one of the leading figures on London’s underground dance scene, booked me to play at the TDK Cross Central Festival at The Cross, one of the venues (now long gone) then situated in the goods yard behind Kings Cross Station in London. I remember Maurice Fulton also appeared – it was the first time I’d seen him play.

Blind Arcade Meets Super Weird Substance In The Morphogenetic Field

During the last few months I’ve been particularly swamped, working hard on a project that I can happily say has now reached fruition as ‘Blind Arcade Meets Super Weird Substance In The Morphogenetic Field’ – a mixtape featuring 19 tracks, mainly recordings by Blind Arcade. It’s just been made public on SoundCloud, having been shared privately with friends and supporters over the weekend, and we’ve been so happy to see how quickly it’s being embraced in these past 24 hours. It’s available here as a free download:

Remixing Joan As Police Woman

Back in December I received an email from Sean Mayo at Play It Again Sam Records asking me if I’d like to remix what I thought, at first glance, was a track by Jon Of The Pleased Wimmin, who’d had some club hits back in the ’90s. I thought this an odd request, not the type of artist I’d expect to be approached to remix. Then I noticed that it was in fact the similarly, but unconnectedly named Joan As Police Woman, aka Brooklyn based Joan Wasser, who’s been recording under this moniker for the past decade in lighthearted homage to the strong and sassy TV character Pepper Anderson (played by Angie Dickenson) from the ’70s series ‘Police Woman’, which was the first successful American primetime TV cop series to feature a woman in the starring role.
