Festive thoughts…

Another good gig under my belt – a cracking night at Cape Cornwall Golf Club with the ska-behemoth that is Pondlife!

Aching back this morning, but not sure whether that’s from lugging kit around or too much dancing!!

No let up as we head to the end of 2010 – still 2 parties to play plus the small matter of a trip to join JTQ in Northampton on the horizon!

First party is my own – so I’m looking forward to playing a very self-indulgent selection of tunes – mostly with an indie flavour.

Then on the 23rd we’re off to Northampton to support James Taylor Quartet at the Picturedrome. JTQ sell-out wherever they go, and tickets are going well for this one too. It’s going to be a cracker. More details here.

Then after a few days break for Christmas, New Year will be upon us! This year we will be mashing it up in Botallack!! I’ve got the honour of playing over the midnight period – though yesterday someone was telling me this is a nightmare for the DJ as it’s the one time of year you MUST get the timing right. Thanks for that! Better go and dust off my Big Ben sample.

Today I’m mostly listening to….

The Cure – so many classic tunes.

Break the Silence tomorrow…

It’s nearly time..

Tomorrow sees the phenomenal Silent Disco return to St Just. Come along, get your wireless ‘phones on and get down to the best tunes from the best DJs.

I’ll be joined on the ones and twos by Death By Science DJs and the Charleston Sound System.

To accurately use a much misused phrase – a night not to be missed! See you there.

Today I’ve been mostly listening to:

Swedish House Mafia – top of the pile right now!

James Taylor Quartet – Northampton – Thurs 23rd December

Digitall DJ will be busting out of the Duchy big style in just a few weeks. I’ll be packing a hard-drive chock-full of the finest funk and toe-tapping tunes and pitching up at the Picturedrome in Northampton.

On the bill are Northampton favourites The Strides and the utterly brilliant fathers of Acid Jazz – James Taylor Quartet.

I’ll be getting the party started from 7pm.

Tickets are now on sale. Click here for ticket details.

The gig is a fundraiser for CAN, a great charity helping those suffering from the effects of alcohol and drug abuse. Find out more here.

SourceFM debut delayed….

Unfortunately, due to the fact that the station is in the middle of moving to new studios, I will not be able to appear on SourceFM this Saturday as planned. However, it will be happening soon – I’ll post details here as soon as I know when.

There  are  also plans afoot to broadcast the shows simultaneously on Penwith Radio (when they have updated their playout system!). Again, watch this space (or more accurately the space above this post!)

NEW BLOG FEATURE:

Today, I’m mostly listening to……..

Balkan Sound System (introduced to me in the pub last night — thanks Gill)

EXCLUSIVE – new year – new station – new show

I am delighted to let you know that Digitall DJ will be spreading his wings to cover Falmouth and Penryn in the very near future!

Yes, I will be playing live DJ sets on Source FM radio once a month starting in November. The show will be part of a new look Saturday night dance-fest on Source, and I can’t wait to get going! I’ll be providing the perfect soundtrack to your Saturday night, whether you are staying in or getting ready to go out!

My first session will be live on Saturday 13th November at 8-10pm. Tune in a little earlier to hear me chatting to the resident No Set Radio guys.

Further dates TBC, but this will be a monthly slot.

Thanks to Matthew and Doug at SourceFM for the opportunity. The station broadcasts on FM in the Falmouth / Penryn area, and also live on the internet. Find out more about the station here.

SWAT Party – what a night!

Despite torrential rain, power cut-outs and a sea of mud outside, last week’s SWAT party was a cracking night.

Thanks to the organisers (esp Rob) for giving me the run of the bar tent, and to all the ravers who made it such a great atmosphere.

(Also big thanks to the tractor crew who towed me out of the field at 5am!!)

DJ Shoey took some video which gives a taste of the vibe. Check it out here.
