Southport Weekender & Suncebeat Festival fast selling out!

Get involved….Southport Weekender & Suncebeat Festival

Whilst there are many festivals & music events taking place around the world each year, catering for all tastes, ages & walks of life, for lovers of the deep & soulful varieties there are two hugely respected sister events that pave the way & are the gigs of choice for those in the know – Southport Weekender (now in it’s 28th year) & Suncebeat, with 2015 being it’s 6th year in the Croatian Sun.

I’ve personally been blessed to make literally 100’s of friends & share many of my best life-experiences at both of these events. I’ve even been graced with the opportunity to spin at both…a truly humbling experience!

Check out the line-ups – plenty of serious music sessions guaranteed.  Among others,  I’m looking forward to seeing & hearing Jarrod Lawson (& feel-good legends Roy Ayers & Brand New Heavies), Ron Trent, Chez Damier & Kerri Chandler back to back, Rainer Truby, Andrew Ashong, Floating Points, Osunlade, Culoe De Song, Sadar Bahar, Nightmares On Wax & The Reflex. But as always, it’s often the unplanned & random moments that catch you off guard & pleasantly surprise you.

Check out the videos below which give you a small taste of what’s on offer. If you’re even partially inclined or interested, then head on over to this link to get the full info, line-up, travel & accommodation info etc

Both are close to selling out, so don’t snooze!

From the archives….guest mix for Michael Ruetten’s SoulSearching

Somebody just sent me a message about an old ‘deep house classics’  mix I did that I’d forgotten about. I need to find the full mix from the archives & upload it, but Michael Ruetten, expert curator behind the widely respected Soul Searching Radio show got in touch & asked if he could share it.


Below is the first part of my mix. It starts at 1:07:18 of Michael’s show. If you’re not familiar with Michael, then check out his quality shows here 

NB: Alongside Rainer Truby, Michael delivered one of the best afternoon DJ sets I’ve ever had the pleasure of hearing whilst sailing on the Adriatic coastline a few years ago. Impeccable. Nobody wanted to leave the boat at the end and kept cheering!
