Welcome to my blog where I write this with a headache, migraine to be exact and no this is a full-on moan, but simply a wow, as it has been extremely hot in the UK of late and though it is lovely, I’m clearly not equipped as one of those summer type persons. Granted the UK-type heat is often not as enjoyable as a fragrant Balearic setting, which is due to the UK infrastructure and I genuinely hate to winge at the small spell of summer we tend to have, I just wish we could cope better with our infrastructure- to avoid sweating and migraines.

This weekend has just gone saw the finale of a band that blew into our world from Bristol, with some great songs and fine live shows. Life took them on a journey and now they have finally decided to rest that collective band of brothers with one last gig for Jimmy and us all. One of my fondest memories was being asked to open an album launch show by introducing EmT, who fittingly was there for the band’s last ever show; such a nice honour for me. I wish the guys well, I thank them for doing what they did so heartfelt and well: Sinestar.

On my Chat bit, I wondered how all my creative followers cope with extreme heat when they are trying to be creative, do you go all alfresco style in your studio, or park it and have a siesta?

Glowing away this week were the new tracks, from HAAI – Train To Spain – Fonz Tramontano and Sarah LadyBnow – Scenius – A PROJECTION – Subha – Beyond Border featuring Blaklight, plus new remixes, classics and loads more.

1. Shelter – Beautiful ft Andy Bell
