Been really lapse over the summer about posting any kind of update on here, so here is a mega summer update. Been a varied musical summer with festivals, mini-tours, recordings and one off gigs, all sorts!
Gigs have been with a variety of heroes : Goldfrapp, Jane Birkin, Clare Teal, Goldie and Paolo Nutini amongst others… A weeks tour of Ireland with Donal Lunny’s fantastic Atlantic Arc Orchestra was extremely rewarding also.
Pete Tong is keeping the Heritage Orchestra busy with the “Ibiza Classics” project and over the summer we did many festivals as well as launch the new Jaguar car at the Excel centre and play in Ibiza for Pachas 50th birthday. Recording sessions also took place for album 2 which will be released towards the end of this year. Exciting – tomorrow I set off for Australia and LA with this too!!
Sessions taken place at studios all over London for many things and trying to keep my own studio busy when I can too. Highlights being recording at Abbey Road all to tape and only using equipment pre 1966. As ever with that place, the sound was ridiculous. Also, just recorded a soundtrack for composer Max De Wardener for a Channel 4 documentary at my studio. The brief was “Birdman”, so I enjoyed having freedom to explore drum sounds and ideas, out soon!
