It’s always a buzz when a project comes to fruition, so today’s release of Credit To The Edit Vol 3, something I’ve looked forward to since we set the ball rolling around a year ago, seems perfectly timed with the much-needed rush of sunshine we’re experiencing after an extended period of shivering. Feels like the Spring has finally arrived, right on cue, and hopefully this will provide part of the season’s soundtrack for you.

Today saw the 2nd release on my new label, Super Weird Substance. It’s a tune that’s already become a big favourite when I’m playing out, people aware of it from its inclusion in a number of live mixes – it’s a track I’ve thoroughly roadtested, fine tuning until I was totally happy with how it sounded in a club environment.
Daft Punk are sitting pretty at the top of the UK singles chart for the first time. The track in question, ‘Get Lucky’, taken from their forthcoming album, ‘Random Access Memories’, came as something of a surprise, for instead of hitching itself to the current EDM juggernaut that’s sweeping America, the French duo have completely bucked the trend by drawing their influence from Disco, featuring its most celebrated guitarist, the great Nile Rodgers of the Chic Organisation (as well as R&B vocalist, Pharrell Williams). A media sensation, it’s everywhere at the moment – on the radio, on the TV, in the clubs and, of course, all over the internet, becoming the most streamed new release in Spotify history. It’s already been re-edited by a whole host of DJs and is pretty much nailed on to be the single of the summer.
My remix of ‘Cocaine Blues’ by Brooklyn’s Escort has been causing a bit of a stir since I started playing it out during the summer, and the buzz has intensified in the last few weeks, having been uploaded onto SoundCloud.
