International Acclaim

Getting music reviews in overseas press and being mentioned in the same breath as engineers as producers I grew up admiring - means a lot to me. And (as has been the case in the past) I often get credited for putting a few small insignificant genres of music, made here in Hong Kong, on the international map.

I treat the greatest producers & DJs in my chosen genres as the benchmark by which I judge my own work (probably why I spend most of my time unhappy with my results ... that's a different story altogether). This par...Read more

Mayonnaise - new 12"

Well I posted the flip to this track back in late July, here's the other side. Can digital releases have sides? Anyhow ... in contrast to the plodding dirge that is Fire Water (just kidding, it's brilliant, buy it ... navigate older blog posts to find the audio), Ma...Read more

Olympics ... roll on the 26th

A joyous celebration of corporate endorsement, advertising and marketing on a global scale!!! Huzzah! Product billboards and branding are occasionally obscured by people running around, leaping through the air and throwing sticks ... but for the most part tonight will see the launch of a two week long television commercial.

Good luck to the athletes, but my real wishes go to China who - I hope - will survive all the international media attention and exit the games for the better.

Yumla DJ Charts on Beatport

Just a quick post regarding Yumla – the four main resident DJs and myself now have our charts added onto Beatport. What is interesting is that we all play a similar sound but there is literally only one or two tracks overlapping amongst the five charts! Techno, tech-house, minimal, progressive, deep-house, electronica, chill-out, tools ... all the good stuff is covered.  You can check them out at the direct links below or just go to Beatport at anytime in the future, type "Yumla" in the Search-All box and every chart fro...Read more

Bacon double cheese burger and DJing

Bacon. Great idea. Cheese, another great idea ... burgers were always going to be a winner. Combine all three together and you end up with one awesome idea. A bit like this video below ...

Take the vinyl timecode of Serrato / Traktor DJ software, the visual representation of iTunes / OSX Finder 'cover flow' plus the overhead projection and response system as used by Bjork's Reactable.  Put them all together and you get this:
