Apologies for letting regular updates on the site slide, I’ve been unusually busy at work.
Firstly, two new mixes are on soundcloud (if you follow me on there you may have already noticed them. You can listen to them (or download them) free of charge below.
Secondly, myself and the other fine gents that constitute the NE-based night homespun have secured a monthly slot at The Boathouse in Durham. We’ll be playing the upstairs bar on the last Saturday of every month (and possibly on other occasions as well when asked).
We’re planning lots of other things homespun related so watch this space…

Just had a few events confirmed in quick succession, so I thought I’d provide more details of them on here.
I’ll be playing at the launch of new House/Electro night MAGNETIC on March 10th at The Globe, alongside Tom Boston, Vicky Vegas, Paul Bhudoye and Paul Junior.
I’ll also be DJing with the rather nice gents that are Jerry Spinner, Andy Woodall, Carl Lumsden (and good mate Ian Cox) at the Homespun 1st Birthday Party at North Bar on March 30th.
Last but not least, I’ve been asked to play as part of the supporting lineup for a massive gig at Digital Newcastle on Easter Sunday, as part of a Bitch Events/Audio Rehab tag team. I’ll be playing Room 2 alongside Kenny Morrison, Mike Louth, and Jordan Fish. The main room features local AR resident Che Armstrong, Bitch resident Kryder, and house heavyweights Third Party, Kim Fai, and Hardwell.
I’ll be uploading a new demo fairly shortly for these events, so watch this space

As this is probably the last mix from me this year, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Kerry & Vicky at The Globe, Che at Audio Rehab, Alan and team at Digital, and everyone else who has been kind enough to have me play, or who has been there listening (and hopefully dancing!), or anyone who has taken the time to listen to any of these mixes.
This year, I’ve managed things I didn’t think possible previously, so hopefully next year will be just as good if not better.
As a little bit of a taster of what you can expect from me in Room 2 at Digital in a few weeks time, I’ve prepared an hours worth of house goodness, which you can listen to and download for free below.

I’ve been asked to play as part of the support for Eric Prydz’s next trip to Digital. As this is going to be absolutely massive, I’m nervous already!
Most of us know Eric Prydz for his chart success with Stevie Winwood’s sampling Call on Me (with that video), his reworking of Pink Floyd’s The Wall, and piano-heavy track Pjanoo. However, thats not all he’s been working on. Under the aliases Sheridan, Cirez D, Pryda, Moo, Fitzy, A&P Project, AxEr, Hardform, Dukes of Sluca, and Groove System, Eric Prydz has been churning out dance floor destroyers, including his latest single under his real name, “2Night”, which has topped the Beatport charts and will probably be doing the same to the official commercial charts fairly shortly.
Eric will be supported in the main room by Jeremy Olander (who has recently had tracks released on Eric’s “Pryda Records” label) and Audio Rehab/Neuroscience resident Che Armstrong. I’m in Room 2 (The Terrace Room) with Steve Love and Paul McMurray.
Tickets are available from ticketweb or from Beatdown/RPM in Newcastle.
The Audio Rehab guys, who have been kind enough to have me play at two of their events (supporting Above & Beyond in March and Paul Van Dyk in August, both at Digital Newcastle), asked me to produce a special guest mix for the latest episode of the Audio Rehab podcast.
