Italo House Tune #6 and A Deep Dark Pit

As I mentioned earlier, I’ve not long climbed out of a long illness – Boxing Day ’til the end of January. I’ve never been so ill for so long. It all started with a cold, but got progressively worse, to the point were I couldn’t even drink water. I lost interest in everything and found it very hard to get out of bed – real weird head-messing stuff.  I’m not one for going to the doctors, and would rather try to cure myself, but I succumbed, unfortunately. The doctor couldn’t explain the problem, but diagnosed Bronchitis. As Steve Cobby said – ‘Proper Bucking Broncho’ (try saying that when you’ve had a few).  It took until the end of February to feel 100%, so Christmas/New Year passed me by. I was also booked to DJ at this…

HSOB 2013

but I had to cancel, which was a bummer, as I was really looking forward to playing with a load of Brummie DJ pals and spinning a Breathless/Snobs set, with a few fresh platters thrown in. I started digging-in-the-crates early December, so that I was sort of prepared with a loose set of gems, and whilst diggin’ I unearthed this great moody Italo House track, which still hits the mark for me….

After The Event


I wanted to post about this event before it actually happened, but hey, life has been a little hectic of late…. Anyway, if you weren’t there you missed a great night. I had an enjoyable time behind the ones and twos, and a tune I played and haven’t stopped whistling since….

Ashley Beedle (Craftsman #7)

Another great interview by Christopher Tubbs.

Ashley is an all round nice guy and a talent that is undeniable when it comes to dance/club music from the late 80’s to the present day. I tip my hat to you Mr. Beedle.


It’s taken me a while to post about this excellent music, but I’m sure you’ll agree it’s worth the wait.

Birmingham via Hull – Adam Regan and Steve Cobby, under the name Chieftain, have come up with a blinding four track EP, that takes it’s inspiration from early 90’s house music right up to the present day Slo-mo House sound.

Go buy

We might as well embrace it, because it ain’t going away anytime soon.

On July 16th 2011 I posted about the weather and included this track….

In 1990 I was in the nightclub Ku, in Ibiza, and it started to rain. There was a mad rush by the staff to cover the speakers, and the DJ (can’t remember who) dropped this track…
