December 2017.

It was with a justifiable sense of pride that I was able to announce the release of my new album on my own Lucid Recordings imprint back on the 29th September.

It was my second kickstarter, and this time around it was a double album called ‘Paracosmic’, initially rolled out to those who got involved with the successful crowdfunding campaign.

It’s one of my strongest sets to date, so it seems churlish not to release it to the general public at a later date… the plan is to roll this out with a proper press and promotional campaign towards the middle of next year. It’ll then be available on limited edition vinyl and CD in all good record shops, and online. Watch this space for news.

Spiritland  | January 2018

I’m playing a Sunday afternoon session at the renowned Spiritland listening rooms/restaurant in Kings Cross, London on Sunday the 21st January.

I’ll be playing from midday through to 5pm. I’ll be playing the vinyl version of my new album, ‘Paracosmic’ in full during the set, alongside other stuff.

If you want to hear some quality music on one of the best sound systems in London Town, whilst enjoying some nice food and drink, be my guest!

Ramblings

It’s a peculiar one – with anything creative, especially when you’re of an artistic bent yourself, one tends to have periods of self-doubt which get in the way of the whole process of putting something new together. Also, if you’re solely responsible for the promotional side of your work, then it’s an even harder slog. 2017 has been pretty full on – I’ve really neglected my art, due to external pressures, which you can read more about here.

However, as I write this, I’m in Greece, and it’s given me the physical distance that I needed to analyse and reflect; as a result of this, I have some definite ideas to push my canon of work forward.

Even after all these years of plugging away, I still believe that the filmic, widescreen qualities of my work deserves a wider audience, and I’m determined to work upon this premise to ensure that it gets out there, somehow.

Ultimately, it’s all about having confidence in what you do, ain’t it…

I sell my music here on this site, but feel free to visit my BandCamp page

In the meantime, here are a few random picks from my back catalogue…

YouTube Channel.

I’ve finally got my arse into gear and started making some short films to accompany some of the tracks on the new album.

Please go here and subscribe to my channel, as I intend to do more visual stuff to accompany my music when I get a bit more time; a precious commodity these days..!

Klassik Lounge Summer Vol.2.

Pleased to be asked to submit a track for this, the latest in the Klassik Radio CD series.

Old friend and alucidnation supporter DJ Nartak, who hails from the fair island of Lanzarote, got in touch and asked if I’d care to license one of the tracks from ‘Peace Odyssey’ for this double CD release.

I’ve had quite a few tracks licensed over the years to this series, so I was happy to get involved again.

Some choice cuts on this; there’s more information here, although you’ll need to be fluent in German to understand the website content.

All downloads are now 25p.

All teaser tracks are on average 1m45s, which’ll hopefully give you a better idea of how each track develops and grows.

Business ain’t appearing to be brisk at present, so, help a struggling piss artist guv, and pay us a visit

Scrapbook

The scrapbook is akin to a blog; I’ll post up information regarding new releases, events and other fascinating bits of information that will either blow your mind or bore you shitless.

If you move your eyeballs to the right, you’ll spot some links to some pearls of wisdom that I’ve already penned.
