Delighted to be taking part in a sweet art exhibition this Thursday (May 1st) in The Copper House Gallery off Synge Street in Dublin. Organized by No Fixed Abode, hosted by Panti Bliss, music by Mother DJs, and in aid of Marriage Equality, there will be limited edition A3 art prints on sale - for one night only! It starts at 6pm. Check out the Facebook event page here. Get involved! There is even a competition to win a print of your choice - you just need to subscribe here.
Check out some of the love themed prints over on The Copper House Gallery site, and check out my design 'Every Heart Holds A Universe' below. And yes, I will be available on the night for signings, high fives and/or cheeky fumbles in the cloakroom - if it will help with sales!
Another sweet Vacationland mix, this one is hella dreamy. I've just listened to it twice in a row and have decided it's definitely my favourite of the series so far. And not just because I can hear Keanu AND Michael J. Fox AND some True Detective in there. It includes 'Selfish' by Tensnake, what a tune, and one of my favourite songs in the whole world, 'Train In Vain' by The Clash. Amazing. Keeping up the excellent work, kudos Vacationland!
If you can't see the above box, click here. Get listening, tracklist with be released after 1000 listens, and I want to know what that savage last track is!
Update: Last track is the first song Cut Copy ever made, called 1981(disco mix). Amazing.

This latest Moshigogo mix is noticeably more banging than his usual ones, have to say I'm loving it -possibly as I just came back from Airbound and am having bangin' tune withdrawal symptoms! I guess sometimes everyone wants to lash out the whopper beats! It's the circle of life. Get involved!
Was very worried for some reason that Bonobo's Essential Mix wouldn't be great. I don't know why I thought this. I think I have deep-seated trust issues, stemming from that time I went to France to see Four Tet live and he played a bunch of jazz. Rest assured this set will not break your heart in such a manner. Quality tracks throughout, pretty chilled in the first half with gorgeous vibes all the way, particularly the last 30 mins. 3 days left to listen below and check out the extensive tracklist that I am far too lazy to copy over.
A very bouncy housey mix here, quality tracks throughout from Swooner faves Pleasure Machines. Gets pretty whopper / bangin' towards the end, be careful if you are feeling a wee bit fragile post weekend! Enjoy!
Volume 3! Yes. This one starts off discoey (it's a word) but gets a little more housey with some savage tracks in the last third. Track at 47 mins is so slick, then it's right back into the disco vibes til the end. Quality!
My friend Elaine sent me the first track 'No Romance' on this mix a couple of days ago asking if it would be my vibe, because it was her vibe for sure. I had to agree, it was also my vibe, as is the rest of this Compuphonic Tale. Is this your vibe Elaine? I think it might be. Check out more about that first track on the Greco-Roman label here and check out the mix below. Beautiful tracks, what a gorgeous finish too. Dare I say this is one of my favourite Compuphonic mixes so far?
Tirzah - No Romance
Ross Evans - Part of the Dream
Mickey - Sweet Baby
Dirty Channels - On The Way (Daniel Bortz Remix)
Asadinho - Love Capacity
Simion - Warning
Andhim - Hausch (Kölsch remix)
Nils Penner - Bubbles
Gui Boratto - Flying Practice (HNQO remix)
Diz, Iz - Mouth (Pepe Bradock's Unreleased Remix #1)
M83 - Run Into Flowers (Midnight Fuck Remix by Jackson)
The Subs - Trapped (Compuphonic remix)
Frankie Knuckles - Your Love
I've posted a tonne of Compuphonic mixes, check 'em here.
Simon Green aka Bonobo aka Swoon Merchant Extraordinaire talks a bit about his music, his early career and how he went about production in the early days. He goes on to discuss making Black Sands around 2009 and his influences, living in Brighton, working with Erykah Badu. Super chilled, quality radio.
There is a big 3 day party this Easter in London. Come to it! A weekend of savage music and mayhem including a boat party on the Thames on Good Friday and a load of sweet acts including consummate Swooner favourites Lasertom, Rubio, Get Down Edits, Lil Dave, Shocko, and a whole lot more over the 3 days. I think Chewy is even going to throw down a sweet pipe layin' RnB jam session on the boat. That alone is worth the trip. Links to some mixes and things by various artists below to get you in the mood!
"Kicking off festivities will be a four hour boat cruise aboard the Dutch Master on the Friday evening from 7pm. From there the weekend continues in one of London's most respected venues: Autumn Studios (Of BLOC fame). There is also a very special secret location "after hours" planned for those who don't want to go home just yet...
Sunday the party kicks off once again with a gourmet Brunch from The Hackney Dinner Society at The Horse & Groom Shoreditch at 2pm.
A full programme of DJs and a packed menu of great food will keep you dancing well into the night." - Get involved!
