Catching My Breath
It’s been surprisingly full-on in the last couple of months with music releases at Havey HQ. This can probably be explained by lock down giving me something to do such as sit in the studio and finish projects that should have been finished many moons ago! Not least my latest release on Electronic Alliance Records with @spawnband where I remixed their original ska punk track Skallegro:
But there isn’t going to be any time to catch my breath until after the first week of July as there’s plenty of things to look forward to music wise from the man cave here!
I’ll be flip flopping between Trance music and Drum & Bass for the rest of June and beginning of July, starting with…
19th June – Skaarl – Freaky Medicine (Remixes)
This will be a two track EP release where Skaarl aka Senor Moon Trousers‘ Tech House original called “Freaky Medicine” gets the lockdown treatment with Skaarl’s own reinvention of it and my Trance take. We are excited about bringing this one to you and seems appropriate with the name given these talks about vaccines for a virus no-one seems to know anything about…
If you can’t wait until the 19th, well, you can pre-order it here via the Electronic Alliance Beatport page 😃
20th June – Platform Project Livestream – 20:00 UK time
Then I’ve somehow got to ramp up my BPM again to 174 as the day after Freaky Medicine gets released, I’m on the air waves live streaming a 2 hour mix with DJ Pi as we continue our digital back2back with our relay up and down the M6 in the UK!
Speaking of which, I should probably start working on the track list for my section now that DJ Pi has done his bit! I’ll definitely be featuring the Skallegro remix and some new ones from myself but it’s also about other artists and sharing their awesome tunes as well so can’t wait to share them with you!
And we’re going to be getting a new look for the Platform Project with an updated picture… more on that to come 😉 For now, you’ll have to settle for last month’s mix:
26th June – EMA DJ Mix Trance Style – Radio Dark Tunnel
Then, less than a week later, another DJ mix, this time part of Electronic Music Alliance’s DJ Mix series where I’ll be venturing in to the Trance genre! So again, having to tone down the heart rate to a steady 138 BPM haha!
Although I have already recorded and submitted this one to the station, I’m looking forward to sharing the journey with you all when it gets aired on Radio Dark Tunnel as there’ll be unheard exclusives and the remix of Freaky Medicine gets its time to shine along with some tunes that were pretty big in the trance scene (at least in my eyes) from around 1999-2002. Would have LOVED to have gone to Ibiza back in the day, even now would be great, damn coronavirus…
3rd July – Ethanol ADDiKtz – Back In The Habit (Nicky Havey remix)
Then we’re stepping it up again with my remix of fellow EMAlien – Ethanol ADDiKtz – which is getting released on the Future Sounds Anthology Vol. 3 compilation on 3rd July with a lot of the EMA crew hopping on board.
The theme for the compilation this time was something a little summery and seeing as Mr. ADDiKtz’s tune was released at the end of June 2019, the remix seemed a perfect fit! But you’re just going to have to wait to see what I did for it, meanwhile here’s the “banterous” original:
Phew! I think July I’ll be taking a bit of chill time for sure to recharge the batteries but loads to look forward to this month from the music side of things! Looking forward to sharing it all with you!
