Room Reunion Night Raises £650 for Charity

What a weekend it’s been!

My studio compadre and Old Skool mucker Phil Urry headlined a charity event at Studio, formerly the legendary Room nightclub, in Hull. Room was at the very core of the burgeoning underground house scene in the 90s, with a unique mix of superstar DJs in the subtle surroundings of the grade 2 listed building. The Room Reunion night paid homage to these nights, as well as raising over £650 for a cancer ward at Castle Hill Hospital in East Yorkshire. Some amazing tunes were played that night, and I had the privilege making a cameo on the decks as well. It was a surreal moment for me dropping some of the tunes I first heard at played at Room by the legends of the dance music story and the experience is something which I’ll never forget. Thanks to everybody that made the night a huge success, and paved the way for more events in the future 

Music continues to have a pulse and it’s invigorating being involved in multiple projects with some really talented artists.

First up is the news that we should have a release date for the Definite Grooves / Angie Brown track early this week, so it will finally be out there for people to buy. I’ve also put a series of music videos together to help the collab go viral.

After working with a legend in the music industry, I have also been working with an unknown singer / songwriter who is on the cusp of great things. She worked with a producer from Leeds, and their track was signed up by a big label. My remix of the track was 90% completed, when I got the call to say that the label isn’t looking to release it yet. They haven’t heard any of my remix yet, so I’ve bundled what I’ve done so far – a complete reinvention of the tune around some astounding vocals – and I’m waiting for feedback on what they want to do. Whatever happens with it, my track WILL see the light of day – either as an instrumental or with some different vocals added over the top.

Aside from working on the Epicentre album material, there are some exciting projects lined up in the near future, including putting the finishing touches to a Seismic Waves EP with my studio wingman Ali Rumba and some exciting projects with Definite Grooves.

Stay tuned.
