To celebrate the forthcoming Fun In The Sun in Tenerife I’ve recorded another guest mix for the good people at Boogie Bunker Radio! Check out the mix below featuring disco and house from some of my favourites, Joey Negro, Crazy P, Chic, Barbara Tucker and loads more.
Check out the event here and if you fancy spending a week in January boiling and listening to great music (instead of freezing, skint, depressed and ill) then get involved!! I can’t bloody wait :)
I’ll be on regular guest mix duty and you can tune in to all the shows here
A recording of our recent Alfresco Boat Party, the first 2 hours comes from me before I handed over to fellow resident Logan Fisher. Another great night on the Thames rocking to an acid house soundtrack, click on the link for the tunes and playlist!
My new remix of Go Satta’s “A real boy” is out now to buy on Emerald and Doreen records. Available at all online music sites from iTunes to Traxsource, go grab a copy! This is a blissed out 9-minute remix that has been soundtracking sunsets all Summer. The track lets the amazing original strings and pads breathe, taking inspiration from Massive Attack and Pachanga Boys along the way. It’s a great EP from an amazing label, click on the link to buy and listen to the rest of the release, I hope you enjoy!
Nearly 3 hours of dark, chugging acid house that has been soundtracking my Summer gigs. It was a pleasure to be asked to do this guest mix for Death by Repetition, be sure to check their awesome Soundcloud mix series here!
Summer 2018, an absolute scorcher and a great summer of music (as well as footy)!
Personal DJ highlights were the festivals, including a debut at BESTIVAL as well as the regular slots at Alfresco & Beatherder and spending my birthday week in Tenerife with the Boogie Bunker Radio crew (special shouts to Pete Callard & JJ Williams for hospitality of the highest order).
Production wise it was great to feature on the Hot Digits compilation which topped the Juno Disco charts and featuring on the acclaimed "Nothing is Perfect" release from Field of Dreams was an honour!
Coming up between now and Xmas there are a load of local gigs (always a bonus) and another Alfresco Boat Party on the Thames, loads more Cowbell shows as well as remixes on some of my favourite labels including Emerald & Doreen, Eclectics and NEIN! Chuck in some guest mixes too and it's gonna be busy as usual!!
Here's a quick line-up of the next few confirmed gigs, so glad to be playing back in Blackpool a few times. It's easy for people to knock the town but I'm proud of Blackpool, the people and the musical talent and back story from our very own 'Vegas of the North!'
Sunday 26 Aug - Blackpool CC - Cowbell on the Decking
Saturday 1st Sep - Vybe, Blackpool - Ed Mahon & residents
Friday 14th Sep - Blackpool CC - Cowbell birthday bash
Saturday 15th Sep - Baha, Bowness
Saturday 13th Oct - Alfresco Boat Party (River Thames) - Logan Fisher & Ed Mahon
Saturday 10th Nov - Friends Hoedown (Graeme Park & Ed Mahon, Blackpool)
It's great to be back at the spiritual home of Cowbell Radio (Blackpool Cricket Club) and I'm looking forward to seeing how my old mucker Barrie Jay is getting on with his new house night in Blackpool on 1st September.
Before we know it we'll be back down the Thames for the Alfresco Boat Party where I'll be joining Logan Fisher (Haules Baules) on the decks as we provide an acid house soundtrack to a rave on the River! Check out my photo from the last boat party...not bad for me (I'm rubbish at photos)!
Then it'll be time for the next Friends Hoedown where we welcome the legend that is Graeme Park for another night of quality house music. The man needs no intro so get your tickets ASAP!
Awesome acts already announced!! Get your tickets early HERE! While we're at it, here's a few memories of last time round. Roll on 2019....
As ever massive respect to my partner in crime Chinny and Nicky and the gang for all their efforts in throwing such an amazing party, can't wait for the next one!
Straight after Alfresco it was off to Tenerife for more FUN IN THE SUN with the good people from Boogie Bunker Radio
Massive respect to JJ and the crew for organising a great week of music at some cool venues. There are some great DJs playing cool music on the island, see the posters below for some to keep an eye on. One stand-out for me was the amazing new venue Serena Finca...think Pikes meets DC10 meets Burning Man! If you go to Tenerife, go there! Day or night, just go and eat, drink, dance and lose yourself!! We WILL be back there in January so watch this space.
