Pearl Jam @ Brixton Academy in 1993. Was 16, a huge fan, and it was one of the first 'proper' gigs I'd even been to. Blown away...

Electronica - Underworld, again at Brixton Academy, about 4 years ago. Had seen them a few times at festivals before, but in a fairly small, enclosed venue like that they were a whole different proposition.

10th Wedding Anniversary party for two very good friends (one of whom is GU Board legend Daisytripper who's last trip to Bedrock didnt end well!!!!) of ours. Followed by a bit of Vets football on Sunday Morning then off to a 2 year old's party with the boy.


Apart from the last two bits. Instead I'm off to Hotel Du Vin with Mrs Tim to pickle ourselves in vino....

Loved this on a Digweed mix from 3beat in 1999...

On the mix, there's an incredible mix out the back of Far Above the Clouds which is one of the things that got me into mixing in the first place. Amazeballs.

Thought the ending of Requiem for a Dream was amazing the first time I watched it. Not the most pleasant five minutes of my life, but proper sitting on the edge of my seat (literally), heart pounding stuff...

Slightly harsh. It was about 26, plus a dog.

North of the island is beautiful. Spent a lot of very happy time there over the years at a beautiful villa on the hillside in Nissaki...

I don't know what I'm doing right, but I've never had any of my mixes queried or taken down, despite not using any sort of overdub at the beginning of the first track... Intro tracks do tend to be something beatless and floaty though - would that confuse the recognition software?

The mixes have to have more than 3 listens before they take them down.

Which all of the mixes I have on my page at the moment do...

Whoop it up! was a brilliant night out. Used to go there and to Ultimate Base at the Velvet Rooms a lot when I was first living in London...

This. All two hours of it... … weed-3beat

I've been trying to track this mix down since about 2001. Always thought it was a Sasha mix, but apparently is Digweed. The mix out of the back of tubular bells is what go me into mixing. Granted, it's a bit drifty - but musically it's awesome...

Just back from a weekend in Lisbon. Highly recommended...

Beautiful city with a mixture of traditional/historical stuff to do, and some more modern sights. Lovely food and wine which I found really reasonably priced compared to other experiences in Europe in recent years. Great bar options and (apparently) some good clubs which attract some top international DJs, though we didn't go to any while we were there.


the more popular marrillion re mix for the masses

fuck me its good to be alive.

Included this in a spin just a couple of weeks ago. Brings back some amazing memories from '99 or thereabouts....

Ticket paid for, picked up a camper van ticket too... now I just need to find a camper van...

We used these guys last year.

Handily about half way down the A303 for us, so just dropped off the car at theirs when picking up the van, and were in&out on the way home.

They're well set up for Glastonbury goers as well.

Oh, and if we're talking Chicane, surely it's.....

Vietnam - have always loved South East Asia, and am fascinated by the legacy of the Vietnam War.

Tanzania - its my 40th in a couple of years, and as a treat, am heading off for a week in the Serengeti during the wildebeest migration, then a week chilling out on the beach on Pemba Island.

Does anyone remember Red Jerry's Elements nights at Cross?

Don't know about the Cross, but I went to a bunch of Elements nights at Electrowerkz in Angel?

The Cross was my favourite London club by a distance. Never found anywhere else that had the magical mix of venue, crowd and music...

A lot of it comes down to your individual palate. Taking Islay as an example, a lot of the whiskies made here have a smokey flavour from the peat content of the soil. I really like that flavour, but m'dad hates it. He prefers the lighter Highland whiskies like Tomatin and Highland park which tend to have a lighter and slightly sweet (in some cases) aroma and flavour.

He used to be the research director at Tomatin, and his PhD was entitled 'Aspects of Whisky distillation' so I tend to reckon he knows what he's on about....

You have a thread like this without at least 20 Whoop! releases and Marc Mitchell under his 'Human Movement' guise while his missus croons away.  The lead is in this is still perhaps one of the best lead lines I've ever heard from an electronic music record. 

Human Movement - Vidapura (sadly cut short though)

On the same Nigel Dawson Renaissance disc! And probs my favourite Human Movement / Sunday Club track. Awesomely massive stuff...

Nigel Dawson's Renaissance presents disc from around that time was awesome. And very true to his sets closing the Cross for Renaissance...

This particularly is a belter!

Wolf of Wall Street. 9/10 - loved it. Me and Mrs laughed out loud through a lot of it, although we caught ourselves laughing quite a bit at some of the very funny and very accurate drug scenes when others around us didn't. Thought the three hours flew past. There was only one part I thought could have been cut to reduce the length, and then only because I've heard others talking about it being too long, so it was already at the back of my mind. DiCaprio is brilliant in it, and his relationship with Jonah Hill is brilliantly written. Highly recommend...
