Well, after what seems like an interminable amount of humming and harring and lengthy periods of procrastination, I've eventually managed to pull my finger out for long enough to get a brand new, exclusive monthly podcast series up and running. Without sounding too smug, I think I've managed to nail the exact balance with our first 3 or 4 confirmed guests starting off with long time friend of TOLAS, Bird Of Paradise.
Bird of Paradise is Jo Howard's solo project. Hailing from the frozen wastelands of Sunderland in the mystical North East of England he started organising parties in early 2012 in his native lands along with his good friend Clark 'Pav' Davison, the other half of 'Cubik'. As well as being a resident at his own renowned events Jo frequently appeared at some of the North's finest underground nights.
Having began working on his own material in early 2014, he caught the attention of some exciting and innovative labels and released E.P's on Join Our Club and Itchy Pig Records. This gathered great support from names like Red Axes, Eric Duncan and Chida to name a few.
After a busy 6 months, forthcoming in 2015 are a number of releases from labels such as Jennifer Cardini's Correspondant, Have a Killer Time, LBL, Join Our Club and remixes on Throne of Blood, Nein and Blindetonation so keep 'em peeled. But first and foremost, enjoy the mix he's put together for us.
Till next time.
Big love. Mark. X
