Up All Night

The Casio Burlington Project. Corsica Studios, Unit4/5, Elephant Road, London SE17. August 16th. We love a bit of scandal down at DMC. The Burlington's venue at Unit 7 has been closed for 28 days by the police so a change of venue awaits us for what looks a better option than kicking back on your sofa with a can of Tetley in front of Ant & Dec. Chicago's Derrick Carter will be headlining the proceedings making us go loop the loop with old school disco, house, soul, jazz and "whatever catches...

Stephane Malca - Next to you - Better Days mix - Pro-Zak Trax 1999 Amazing piece of properly funky house music, not cheesy at all! Got this from Tag records in Soho back when we all used to go record shopping! Sha-Lor - I'm in Love - Gertie 1989 Beautiful Vocal House track from the Acid house days, the production sounds like it was made in someone's toilet, but it's still a great song. Coco Steel and Lovebomb - Feel It - Warp 1991 The girl friend I had at the time turned me on to this, late nigh...

1.) Andreas Vollenweider "Behind the garden, under the tree"Andreas Vollenweider comes from Switzerland and these guys are basicly   much more relaxed then us Germans. The harp he plays is stunning and   distinctive. Definately something to close your eyes and let yourself go.2.) Jan Gabarek "Red wind"If you are interested in new jazz which is accessable you should   listen to this guy. "Red wind" is only one of 20 songs I could   mention. The soundtrack for aspiration and love for sure3.) Joy D...

Breakfast 'The Horizon' (Flashover)I've used this track on side 1 of my new Delirium album - its kind of chilled out trance with a cinematic vibe, ideal for that 5 in the morning post clubbing first tune and I'm sure there's some great things to come this year from Breakfast, certainly a major talent to look out for. Forerunners 'Lifecycle'   (Deepblue Records)A favourite track of mine from last year another chilled out trance vibe that still manages to pack a fair amount of energy in various tw...
