A few years ago, I did a DJ set at an event at work and because my job involved a certain virtual learning platform, every called me “DJ Blackboard” (geddit? DJ Blackboard sounds like DJ Blackburn, as in Blackburn my surname!) I’ve still got the tracks I played, but so far DJ Blackboard has yet to have a mix on the internet.
Until Today! Here is a short mix of some of the tracks on “Everyday, Everyday – The Mistrust Remixes” now playing on Mixcloud:

I’m taking part in the second Electronic Music Open Mic and Forum (Manchester), this coming Saturday April 15th, 2017. I’ll being playing two of my songs live – one old one and one new. The old one is Half Past One, which was one of the demo tracks of the month in Future Music magazine a few years ago. The new one is as yet untitled.
The open mic night is at Fuel Cafe Bar on Wilmslow Road, Withington, Manchester, and starts at 7pm. There’ll be loads of great unknown and unsigned bands and solo artists there, so head on over and lend your support!

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.
Here’s the first track of the album I mentioned in a recent post. It’s called Colour Coded, from the album called “Album” by Soup. Soup are, amongst others, Andy Whitaker and Oz Cooper, from Manchester in the UK.
There’s also a review of the album in SIC Magazine here…..
