This is my first mix done completely using Traktor on 4 decks. I've become a bit of a convert after being a purely vinyl DJ for many years - Traktor enables me to produce dense, atmospheric layers and integrate tracks that would be nigh on impossible to do on vinyl.
Another packed programme tracklist this month - 33 in all.

Here's the full audio from my live AV set at Colony. It was a thoroughly enjoyable night hosted by the fantastic Max and Carl - thanks chaps. It was great to finally meet Oliver Ho and Tom Russell (Truss) - both really nice guys. It's always a real pleasure to play at Corsica Studios, such a well run and friendly venue.
Great to catch up with Simon (Agent 2) who was playing in the Scand room, unfortunately his set time clashed with mine.
Thanks due also to Abbi and Daryl for their hospitality over the weeknd and Rich and Al for helping me lug me gear round and to everyone who turned out in support x
This is the accompanying video shown on the night.
Also, my good friend Bioni Samp shot some video of the last 15 minutes of the set.

I'm very pleased and proud to be asked to play at one of the UKs finest techno/electronic nights, Colony at the fantastic Corsica Studios in London on Saturday August 31st.
I'll be playing an all new live AV set specially written for Colony. It's a top drawer line-up with Truss, Raudive (Oliver Ho) Szare and myself in Room 1 alongside hosts Tengui and CB. The estimable Scand crew host Room 2 with Silicon Scally, Morphology, Sync 24, Agent2, ADJ and Steve Allman.
My set will be recorded and will go out on Fnoob Techno Radio the following month and will be available on Soundcloud thereafter.
