Musings of a music writer, DJ, compiler, and producer
Tuesday, 11 August 2009
One of my favourite French producers. Not sure how he'd describe himself but maybe he'd use the words "instrumental hip hop" somewhere. However his love of old sounds and samples is obvious. This is a classy tune and a very strange video!
I've been a music journalist for many years now. I've written for The Independent, Observer Music Monthly, The Mail On Sunday, New Statesman, Music Week, Musician Magazine, HMV Choice, Songlines, URB, XLR8R, and many others.
I also compile compilations for a living. Have done 40 + and still going. Most on the global electronica tip. And I DJ when the mood takes me.
My new DJ/production collective is The Gaslight Troubadours (www.myspace.com/thegaslighttroubadours)
