I’m giving you a nightcall to tell you how I feel

Kavinsky - Nightcall… I overdose on nostalgic 80s neon city night…

So…in between mixing my next track, and ringing round a few local bars to see if they’ll be showing the Formula One tomorrow, I’ve decided to play the Drive soundtrack and have a write.

 

I’ve released another Wires & Diamonds track. This one is called Fireflies.

J Tizz is the bass machine on this. And the master masterer. It was a heavy session with iced tea and grapes. I waxed his arm, he licked my hand.

There’s something seriously freeing about electronica…I love reverb and delays, distortion and vocal layering. Playing around with wonky beats, harmonies, finding new sounds to mess with…

I’m not a multi-genre artist…It’s more like a split musicality. Wires & Diamonds is my electronica alter-ego.

 

I’ll always enjoy performing live…but for those moments when I need to set the dreams and feelings free…Wires & Diamonds.

 

In other news

 

I apparently shouted at Adam for not taking the lead at Trip Awake rehearsals and letting us know how he wants the songs to go down. We have since been warned that he’s made a list of stuff he wants doing at next session…I think I’ve unleashed the beast.

 
 
 

The F-Bomb is still being Christmas…and I’m pleased to report she has just put her tree up. How do I know? She’s just sent me a picture…and a video of the lights flashing.

Still only November.

She also puts stupid filters on stuff…I must think she’s canny to tolerate this shit.

Art session - 3 bottles of red wine and half a bottle of whiskey later we had a stickman logo.

The guitar lads reckon I look like a gangster in rhythm guitar’s hat.
