Actinium - new track on Soundcloud

Another new track out on Soundcloud, this time something more bouncy and electro - house oriented.

I've got a week off at the moment so I'm trying my best to make some new tracks and get them finished so I can post them up.

SW4 coverage and reviews

First up are the reviews that I have written which are now up on Efestivals to read. I've also updated the reviews page (top bar) with some other reviews I had forgotten to stick up there, so eat your heart out. Not sure about photos for the festival though.

Chase & Status, Skrillex & others @ SW4 Festival / Clapham Common, London / 25th - 26th August 2012

In the meantime, check out the three videos I have posted on Youtube of the festival - there are some great people with better videos as well so you can get a better feel of the show.

DJ Fresh on Day 2

Smashed it on Saturday!

So it may have rained like a motherfucker, thunder and lightning all present, but my god what an awesome Saturday. So amped for the Sunday as I write my review for Efestivals; all I have to say is that you have to grab a ticket to see Knife Party as soon as.Why? Imagine this in a muddy field!

Photos and more to come on bank holiday monday when I have had a chance to catch my breath after day two of SW4!

Edit: Ok, I lied. Here's a shitty video I just put together:

Resident Evil 2 OST - Various

Resident Evil 2 was the first game of the series I had played, right back on the PS1. While the shuffling, low-poly count zombies looked a little basic next to the lovely pre-rendered backgrounds, I believe this added something to the experience in the same way that Konami's faceless enemies come at you. Not only that, but the game moved to a much larger locale; the nearby town of Raccoon City and let the descent into madness happen anew.

It's Saturday and SW4 is here!

In a bizarre and surprise-of-the-good variety, I have just been granted press guestlist access to both days of London's South West Four festival in leafy Clapham Common. Crossing over the river and down in to South London I have the following acts to look forward to.


Chase & Status
Carl Cox
Knife Party
Benny Benassi
Erick Morillo
Paul Van Dyk
Markus Schulz
Guy Gerber
Robert Babicz
John Digweed
and lots more.

Full lineup at:

After the mess that was Bloc Weekender (RIP), I'm keen to get my teeth into a decent dance music festival. Chase & Status headlining should be an awesome set, even if it does end at 10pm. Day two also looks fun as well.

Want to join me? Head to Twitter and look for me on the SW4 hash tag lists.

Chilling out at Netil house

Boasting some lovely views across East London, the roof has been transformed into a decked garden. Celebrating the last days of summer with food music and strawberry cider.

Doom - Level 1

I seriously hope I don't quite have to explain this game to anyone, but the first track on the soundtrack still gets me pumped for the run and gun experience that is ID's Doom. My first experience of this had been on the Atari Jaguar, which owing to hardware limitations didn't have any music. Arguably this lead to a creepier, horror-filled experience of the game (try it without music to see what I mean), but after getting in on deathmatch games on my school's PCs, this changed the game into a much more fun filled blast-a-thon. Still a great play nowadays as well.

Quick review: X-Factor pack

I was showing a couple of Dutch friends around London recently and came across a cheap box set that my favourite music store Fopp were selling. It's an X-Factor branded Karaoke set (despite the Lucky Voice logos everywhere, only this is designed to be used with a laptop and internet connection. For a fiver, I thought it would be worth messing with, if only for a few cables and a microphone.

Going gold for Team GB

Proud to be British at the moment, given the amazing results with Team GB in some of the Olympic events this year and I have been enjoying them from the comfort of my own flat in the company of friends. Should I also mention that my flat looks over the Olympic Park? Amazing fun to be had in London at the moment!
