Old Public Information films and my songs. Well, my remixes actually. Here’s a video I made for my remix of Khartomb’s Cabbage & Kings, using and edit from “Charley’s March of Time”, a British Public Information film from 1948 by Halas and Batchelor.
One-time Peel Sessions band Khartomb have come out of musical retirement to record some new songs. Their new EP Shut it Down/Cabbages & Kings features two of those songs, plus mixes by The Only Michael and remixes by me! The EP is available to stream and buy on Khartomb’s Bandcamp, and you can hear it on this blog too…
I’m proud to be involved in a compilation album called “Salford Streets” which aims to draw attention to the plight of the homeless, and raise valuable funds for the Emmaus facility in Salford, UK. The album features new music from 35 bands and musicians from Salford and surrounding areas of Manchester, Bolton, and further afield, and included my track “Half Past One“. It only cost £3.00 for the whole album, so please support this great cause by downloading it here:
Here’s my remix for Banco de Gaia’s All Sleeping EP – out now on Disco Gecko Recordings via Bandcamp, Amazon, iTunes etc. Here’s what the man himself has to say about the EP…
“It seems only fitting that as summer slips into fall, I release this ode to rest and relaxation.
The ‘All Sleeping’ EP features the original track, which is blessed with flutes from Tim Wheater and violas from Patrick Dunn, plus three additional remixes.
The high priests of Sacred Bass, Desert Dwellers, provide a jittery yet soothing mix, while Mistrust’s electronica musings darken the original mood. Finally Hibernation lifts us back into a sweet space with a solid downtempo mix, sealed by the additional bass.”
