This week I'm really excited to be heading up to Nottingham to Dj at Dollop along side Franz & Shape. Also playing is Late of The Pier's bassist Francis Dance, D'Lex, Clarky Cat Djs and Me Me Me.
If you're in the area then come on down and if you want a T-shirt I'll be bringing some up. If you can't make it I will be returning to the midlands in the new year. See you Friday!

Andy George is 1 1/4th of Lincoln party collective Moda. The monthly club night at The Cell in Lincoln is one of the UK's hottest events and in just over one year has played host to the likes of Switch, Annie Mac, DJ Touche, Kissy Sell Out, Yousef and Tom Neville to name a few. George has just got his debut release "Big Dipper" signed and due for release in January and it has already been picked up for remixing by HiJack and Hostage.
How long have you been running Moda?
For over a year now!
Is it just yourself or are you a collective?
There's in fact 4 of us including Me - Jaymo, Ben Atkins (Benni Cassette) and Ingo Staar.
Was Moda the start or have you organised nights before?
We'd all promoted various other events but wanted to create something special with Moda, and i think we did!
Do you have a residency elsewhere or play at any other events?
I try and DJ as much as possible (I work in TV production) and produce in whatever time I have left, but will be picking up the pace in the next year! Played all over the country! More recently at places like Micky Slims night "If" in Birmingham.
You've recently had Crookers and Bryan Cox come and play Moda, who else have you had play at previous events?
I've played with the likes of Switch, Annie Mac, DJ Touche, Kissy Sell Out, The Mystery Jets, Tom Neville
Is there anyone you'd like to invite to play future events?
So many people! Lined up for '08 are people like Sinden, Annie's coming back, Joshua Harvey and Hijack!
How long have you been Djing?
Since I was 15! But with CDJs/Ableton only 2 or so years!
Are there any bands or acts that you draw any inspiration from?
Lots, I love a mix of Hip Hop in house music, Sinden's a wicked party DJ, obviously Daft Punk are a huge part of my musical love and then bands like Devils Gun (I'm working with Jagga from Devils Gun on my next track which will see me under a new alias!)
How long have you been producing?
Probably only about 8months!
Do you remix other artists' tracks?
I'm going to be remixing another Moda resident Benni Cassette, he's not only one of my best friends but is churning out some really cool stuf - check out his myspace!!
Where will you be playing over the next few weeks?
You can catch me at Mystic Disco @ On Anon, London next Thursday
The London Union Party @ FABRIC with Bloc Party, Pendulum and Eric Prydz then Moda with Boy 8-Bit & Zombie Disco Squad and Boxing Day & NYE at The Cell in Lincoln (my current residency!)

The Presets are my most favorite band to surface from Australia since AC/DC. Not that they are in any way similar to AC/DC but they are on their way to becoming just as big.
They have just completed 2 years of solid touring the globe promoting their debut album 'Beams' and are set to support Daft Punk as the French robot's hit the shores down-under next month.
Today though heralds the preview of their new track 'My People' on their Myspace which, is a corker of a track, already wetting my appetite in preparation of the new material.
The gritty, grinding synth bass lines and driving rhythm of 'My People' is reflecting a slightly tougher progression of the dancefloor hits like 'I Go Hard, I Go Home' and 'Are You The One' from Beams. But the Presets have always had a distinctively dark character to their music with tracks like 'Waiting For You' and 'Cookie' from their EP 'Blow', this sound being evermore present in the new material.

This Thursday is Vice Magazine's 5th Birthday and as always they are celebrating in style, putting on a quality party featuring the likes of The Teenagers, The Horrors, Kavinsky, Surkin and Bonde Do Role to name a few. I was pleased to get my invite in the post this morning. If you can get yourself one I suggest booking Friday off as if last year's party was anything to go by, you're gonna need it.
If you're quick Vice have a 100 pairs of tickets to be given to the first 100 people to email KYLIE on firstname.lastname@example.org with their address by the end of today.

You have probably seen the 'Daft Hands' video that's been doing the rounds on the internet recently with its many replications, well here's another pretty good effort.
While browsing I also found this 11 man Beatboxing version.

Big thanks to the boys at Deadly Rhythm Club for inviting me to dj last night, it was a quality night with some top notch, if not a little strange, bands (Got to get me a feather waistcoat!).
Unfortunately Cock'N'Bull Kid couldn't make it but, party starters Man Like Me stole the show. They are just about to head out on a UK tour supporting Chromeo and I strongly advise you checking them out.

A couple of weeks ago I posted the brilliant remix of Davina - "Dont you want it" by French remix duo Leroy Washington & Sevenfive. Well, the boys are back with their remix of "Fuck the Dj" by Purple Crush and are now producing their acid/filtered/electro-techno remixes under the new alias of Tuff Wheelz.
The duo signed to Discolor earlier in the year and became the official Discolor dj’s, producing quality remixes such as an unofficial Timbaland - "Misscomunication" remix, "Knock out" by The Shoes as well as the tracks by Purple Crush and Davina.
I'm still a big fan of the original "Fuck the Dj" with its rolling grinding guitar but Tuff Wheelz step it up a mark and add their distinctive acid/rave/bmore tip to it with awesome results:

As well as making mixtape's and wasting time on the internet I also spend my spare time designing T-shirts which I sell online and at my good friend Laurence's boutique in Portobello. The 'Frankie' tee has been out for a couple of months now and has been well received so I decided to unleash my second shirt; 'Vamp'.
You can be the proud owner of either of these tee's for the modest price of £27 including postage & packaging (Europe only. £29 inc P&P for the rest of the World).
So head on over to my online shop or if your in London drop by the isavedlaurence boutique in Portobello.

I've just received this cracking remix of The Whip's 'Trash' by Rory Lyons & Will Graney, aka Cassette Jam. The boys have certainly been busy over the past year. Since winning the 'Cream International Search for a DJ Competition 2006' they have maintained residencies at the UK's notorious Cream & The Dirty Disco Clubs as well as playing Ibiza, Russia, Malawi, Belgium, Latvia to name a few. They are currently filling dance floors up and down the country with their cut up blend of electro-indie-tech-disco and preparing for a tour in Canada in the new year, also finding the time to make remixes, bootlegs and work on their upcoming album. Phew!
Check out their remix below with some lovely grinding bass and bleeping synth action due out on Southern Fried Records next year:
