Wax Poetics x Le Pigalle w/ The Funky Jems

I first met Melissa and Jennette, aka Melissa Witt and Madame Ette, on a Friday night out in Pigalle. We somehow got chatting at the bar of Le Sans Souci and quickly realised we had heaps in common, especially when it came to records. Rick James, Nu Shooz, Digital Underground, Kate Bush, Prince etc., we […]

I always love Chris’ mixtapes .. the way he puts it all together – original sample material, album tracks, alternative versions, interview snippets, etc. – just […]

It’s always such a treat getting to bring over my buddies from the U.K. for the Wax Poetics x Le Pigalle soiree, and having the homie Bobafatt here in Paris last month was no exception. I first met Bobby when I was working for Delicious Vinyl, and he was working for Rough Trade, back in […]

Los Angeles December 2017

Just before Christmas I made a somewhat last-minute trip out to California to see friends and family. When reflecting back on my time, the thing that really strikes me is how the littlest moments, modest in nature and often unexpected, are the ones that stay with you and seem to somehow mean the most … Don’t […]

Not only has Matman put together some fine mixtapes for the Wax Poetics x Whosampled series, but, he also edited my video interviews with Prince Paul and Dan the Automator […]

Guest Mix for Rinse France

Last month I was honoured to be invited to put together a guest mix for Rinse France by fellow Le Pigalle resident Onelight. Seeing as it was December and I was on a West End Records binge, my mix ended up being a Larry Levan/Christmas hip-hop song mash up (full tracklist below) – perfect for […]

WP After Dark

The After Dark Mixtape

  I originally intended to drop this one in the run up to the Wax Poetics After Dark party at Le Pigalle in Paris, but, sometimes shit happens and sometimes flower pots fall on laptops and mixtapes get lost. In my opinion it’s never too late for good music to circulate though, so, am excited […]
