UM212 – A Personal Milestone

Last Christmas I discovered Richie Hartness’ label UM Records via his Best of 2013 podcasts. Late to the party, I know, but I was so impressed with the tunes, Richie’s mixes and the undeniable quality of the label, that I set to work on my own deep house tunes with a new found energy.

I had been producing a pretty eclectic mix of electronic music over the previous few years, with no particular direction and had kind of lost my way during 2013. The New Year (as for so many people) represented a new chapter and an opportunity to bring a solid focus to my music.

I know I’m still pretty wet behind the deep house ears but I’m enormously proud that December has seen the release of my first track with UM Records and – a significant personal milestone – an appearance on show 212 of the UM podcast.

With HUGE thanks to everybody for the support during the year – not least Richie and Paul at UM Records, all the other artists on the label who I’ve met on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and my good friend Matt Ryan for his positive and constructive feedback, encouragement during those times when I feel creatively hopeless and his genuine love of house music (as a former DJ at Manchester’s Hacienda, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised by this!).

2014 rocked. 2015 – let’s roll.
