As I was first on the bill I was there early and got to watch all the other amazing acts. It was so nice to meet talented, encouraging artists
This was the first time I played my new set, which includes songs from my new remix Album ‘Quasi-static’ It was also the first time I used my visual display – showing videos to the songs on the screen behind me
I played the video for ‘Miss Perfect ‘(LorD and Master Remix) for the first time at the gig, and it went down very well
The Electricity Club recently reviewed Quasi-static. Last September, at 2017 Synthetic City, Paul Brown had a bit of a hand in asking John Von Ahlen before I got to him about doing a remix for me. By the time I plucked up the courage to ask him myself he said “Of course I would love to!” I felt a bit of a wally.
Here’s a few quotes from the review I particularly liked, the full review is linked at the bottom.
“Any remix delivered by the superb talents of Australian synthpop outfit Parralox is always going to be special. Here, ‘I Never Thought’ is given a floor-stomping quality that’s a radical departure from Electrostatic’s more reflective approach”
“Perhaps one of the best remixes on the album is LorD & Master’s reworking of ‘Miss Perfect’. The vocals are kept front and centre, but there’s additional melodic lifts that somehow manage to give the song a fresh, dynamic quality.”
“Meanwhile, Nature Of Wires, rapidly becoming the go-to act for remix duties, do a powerful reworking of ‘Don’t Wanna’. There’s a muscular, brooding quality to this track with nods to dark dance beats.”
I bumped into Chris Watts from ‘In The Moog’ at Warwickshire Pride and he asked me if I would like to come into the studio and have an interview with Gary Watts from Nature of Wires.
This sounded like a great idea! I wasn’t able to make it into the studio but I did call up. There were a few technical difficulties putting the call through but eventually we got there and I had a good 20 minute chat with the guys.
I also got to introduce my track ‘Constant Pain’ (Arcane Remix)
So recently I was invited by Nature of Wires to perform at three of the Ohm from Ohm tour dates with them, performing their remix of ‘Don’t Wanna’
Nature of Wires – Actress and Bishop
The first date was at the Actress and Bishop is Birmingham in April. Other bands on the line up were The Fixion, Rodney Cromwell and Vieon. The bands alternated the line up each night, but the three nights I did, Nature of Wires were on 2nd.
My song was on 5th, after Time is Come.
Performing at Actress and Bishop
This was the first time I have fronted a band before. Normally I am onstage with just my laptop it took a bit of getting used to having Tim banging behind me .
Performing at The Islington, London
The other two dates were in May. First off at The Islington in London.
Next day was at The Tin Music and Arts in Coventry
Fusion#1 on 25th March, ran by Imran Khan was an amazing night to raise money for the Children’s Cancer Wards at Nottingham University Hospital. This was the first fund raising event that I’ve been involved in as a performer and I very much welcomed to opportunity to get involved in such a great cause.
The Chameleon Arts Cafe was a great little venue to perform in,
Here’s some photos of all of the artist who performed on the day
Paz Alexander, Tori Sheard, Caroline McLavy, Lewis Hall and Jake Burns.
Luke Broughton, Ben Smith, Adi Chase and Warren Ireland.
