2017 “The Empty Year” + What’s Coming Up In 2018

Although time doesn’t actually speed up or slow down, at times, it has certainly felt like this year ground to halt and then went supersonic for the final few months. Alas, here I am, looking back at the year that saw very little by way of releases (in fact, a total of 3 tracks on the wonderful Deep Down Dirty and only one of those was Drum & Bass) or even free downloads.

However, that’s not to say “nothing happened” as I took the plunge with doing live shows, broadcasting my first on Brainsmudge Radio (sadly no longer with us), then picking things up on Drumbase with the “Havey Hour” and working with DJ Pi with the monthly Platform Project to showcase up and coming tracks from my producer friends.


Practice Makes Perfect

It was a steep learning curve in the first half of the year as I got to grips with how to do live broadcasts and actually having the confidence to do it! You should have seen me trembling like a leaf before being on Brainsmudge. Now, I have a little more confidence with what I’m doing, I’ll be aiming to push myself even more in 2018, with tracks, mixes and new releases on my website so keep your eyes peeled!

Outside Music

There were also a lot of deep personal events that happened in the second half of the year, which put things in to perspective for me and still have an effect. I don’t want to go in too much detail but the tracks I’ll be pushing out next year will be a reflection of what happened.

What’s coming in 2018?

Well, as I’m looking to make my website the “go-to” place for my music, there’ll be a lot of changes and updates happening, where you will be able to sign up to the newsletter to stay ahead of incoming releases, exclusive free downloads and give your feedback to any new tracks I’ll be making, so watch this space!

Plenty of new tracks coming your way and mixes to boot as well as I aim to bring you Drum & Bass with a Trance twist, along with some remixes of older tunes. If you haven’t clicked play at the top already, then make sure you do, it’s just a little teaser mix of some of the tracks incoming for 2018!


All the best for the coming year, let’s make it a good one folks 🙂
