  • Electric Daisy DJing 22/9/23

    I had such a fun time on Friday night, DJing at Electric Daisy in Derby. Although it had pissed down earlier on, we were lucky with the weather and it was a fine, slightly chilly night. Both Hexial and James Glew did cool sets of very catchy, flowingly melodic bleepy bloopiness. And I did my…

  • Bzangy Groink DJing Playlist 31/8/23

    The best new song was a WHOLE ALBUM tonight and that was the magical, wonderful, scintillating, shimmying, jazz-handsing Subspace Rhapsody by the cast of Strange New Worlds / crew of the Starship Enterprise. I cannot emphasise how much I love this episode. I’ve watched it four times now and each time, I notice more little…

  • Bzangy Groink DJing Playlist 25/5/23

    Another lubly Bzangy with a fragrant cohort of mop-topped music geeks comprising the audience. The most fun thing about being a DJ is trying to read your crowd and then poking them with tracks, seeing if you can make them sing / dance / laugh / weep. And I can tell you, I had fun…

  • Bzangy Groink DJing Playlist 27/4/23

    Woohoo! A few more people tonight and some requests for tracks I’ve played previously! I was dead chuffed! Tonight’s best tune was Jonathan Bree‘s ‘When We Met’: It’s a supersmooth, dolorous threnody to the first blasting bursts of new love, very Magnetic Fields in its bassett-hound melodrama. Tonight, youse hoird: Fruit Bats We Used to…

  • Bzangy Groink DJing Playlist 30/3/2023

    This month’s top tune was Leila by Acid Arab: It’s a stunning track from their new album, Trois. This track is like pure crack for me; I could listen to it on a loop for months. The interplay between the rhythm of the vocals and the grunting, pulsating synth is absolutely fucking perfect. If it…

  • Bzangy Groink DJing Playlist 26/1/2023

    Whoop whoop! First Bzangy of 2023! Tonight’s best new choon was Get Unjaded by The Cool Greenhouse, a wonderful sputter of rambling meanderings over an angular post-punk beat. Here’s the tykes: Photay Feeling, Now Matriarchs All Hail the Underdog Ahab Colossus of the Liquid Graves Axel Boman Nowhere Good feat. Bella Boo Humour alive and…

  • Bzangy Groink DJing 22/12/22

    This week’s best new track is two very old tracks – A Message To You and Ghost Town by The Specials. Well, it had to be after Terry Hall passed away on the 18th. Way before his time. As a kid, The Specials were everything great about British culture for me; this collision between different…

  • Bzangy Groink DJing Playlist 4/11/2022

    WOOHOOOO! After a huuuuuge hiatus, BZANGY IS BACK and it started out lovely last night with a tiny but outrageously gorgeous audience. It was a bloody long set, I DJed from 8pm to 1am at Dubrek but I’m pleased to say the majority of what I played was new music, from 2022. Plus a smattering…

  • Format Festival DJing 25/3/17

  • HDIF DJing 18/3/17

    HOO BOY! Another lovely night DJing for Ian Watson at his lovely HDIF night. We had a good crowd in, a load of mods, some rudeboys and, obviously, plenty of indiepop and soul kids. Here’s what I played: Band Of Gold – For You The Free Design – 2002 – A Hit Song Public Service…

  • HDIF Playlist 17/10/14

    On Friday, the lovely chap above, Ian, had me guest DJ at HDIF again and, as ever, I had a whaaale of a time. It’s the first time I’ve DJed in The Buffalo Bar and I love the venue, it’s got a wonderful vibe and it was soon packed with shimmying indie peeps. There’s a…

  • HDIF DJing Playlist 21/9/13

    Yaaaaay! On Saturday, I DJed How Does It Feel? again and had a silly fun time. It was a bit empty at the start but I got the floor full by the time I handed over to HDIF supremo Ian which is always VICTORY for a DJ. I managed to fit in a good few…

  • HDIF DJing Playlist, 17/11/12

    Last Saturday, I had the privilege of DJing at the almighty HDIF! And, my god, it was rammed! Probably the fullest I’ve done yet, which is encouraging. So many people were asking what tune I was playing, I love that because the whole reason I DJ is to introduce new music! Made me feel all…

  • London & HDIF DJing 20/8/11

    On Friday, I travelled down to London to see my friend Amy. We had a great time wandering around (to me) exotic and sumptuous Leyton. The cake shops! Mmmm… Those little Portuguese thingies, with the pastry and the custardniess are deadly. Then last night I DJed again at HDIF (How Does It Feel To Be…

  • Another Sunny Night Gig & DJing and Parisness

    Last weekend, from Friday to Monday, I was in Paris! I went over to play a gig for the thoroughly lovely Another Sunny Night peeps. While I was there, I also DJed at Planète Mars, an awesome bar that you should check out if you’re ever in Paris. I went over with Robbie, who was…
