I jammed with George Harrison and his son Dhani at George's house (estate) near Henley.

When I say 'jammed' I mean I stood around not doing much, occasionally picking out a chord on a guitar while others played music.

What is melody-less trance Dan!?

Matthew and I have been in contact. Think we'll both be finishing our mixes just before or after New Years...

Isn't it always dark in Turku at this time of the year?

Place Beyond the Pines - 5/10.

A film of two, no - three halves. Didn't really know what it was trying to be. Enjoyed the first third, the middle was mediocre, and the end was fairly mind-numbing.

That Dominion track is one of my favourites. Remember Nigel Dawson using it a lot late in his sets at Renaissance at the X.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't 'Zanzibar' Rowan Blades of Breeder fame?

Jamie, you might be getting this mixed up with the Junction parties at that place on Kingly St. I'm sure that Burridge played they, but that wasn't until the early noughties rather than late 90's. Presto famously disgraced himself by falling asleep on the toilet with his kecks around his ankles on one of the nights.

I 'remember' going to a Sasha launch do for Airdrawndagger at another place ("Reds" iirc) on Carnaby St. I didnt exactly cover myself in glory that particular night.

I don't think this was Kingly Street - more over towards Old Compton Street way - Romilly Street rings a bell - I seem to remember it being on a Tuesday night. It was very brown with round leather stools etc. This is going to bug me now.

You're thinking of the Two Thirty I reckon. Was a house night on Tuesday which I and a few others played at in 2000/2001.

The exuberance of youth - being able to go out partying all weekend, have a break Monday, then get back on it on Tuesday night...

In.

From the slightly spacey intro that sounds a bit like the start of 'In The Air' to that first guitar riff I was hooked. I'd only heard Jeremy before I bought Ten, but for me the whole album is incredible.

Running order Sunday afternoon/night is apparently Ame, Dixon, Ben UFO, Ricardo Villalobos - with Ame starting around 2pm...

Likewise, Sunday afternoon....

Love the odd classics night here and there. Ian Ossia's couple of classics sets for Twisted Audio have been fantastic - particularly given that so many of the crowd at TA gigs are people that I knew when I was listening to the older tracks in the 90's and around the turn of the century.

Wouldn't want it to be the only thing I listened to when I was out, but as on occasional treat, I'm a big fan...

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.

This.

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...

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...

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...
