adam went to new york and all i got was this lousy cd

Ah, a favourite project from 2008. Much has been said about the vinyl revival since then, but it is noticeable that the stores detailed here are now gone too. Bleeker Bob’s is a yoghurt shop. Mondo Kim’s had a very strange end (read it here) and Bleeker Street records moved, was ...

Here’s an unusual little thing. Created by myself and Mr Logan Fisher for Dirk Van Dooren inspired by cassettes Dirk had from years ago and his travels around the middle east. I think he got most of them off taxi drivers. We created ...

Toward the end of last year our good friends at Rude Audio suggested we might be interested in remixing one of the tracks from their recent lovely album, and we jumped at the chance of dabbling in their business. It was such a treat that we actually finished up with ...
