Just a quick one (only around two weeks later than people probably stopped saying it) … to say Happy New Year and thanks for all the massive support through 2015. The growth of the modular videos – http://www.youtube,com/divkidvideo – the first few issues of my magazine – https://www.joomag.com/magazine/divkids-month-of-modular-issue-3-december-2015/0309569001450738379 – and starting to work with Future Music magazine – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_KzUv2uSEU – has been great. There’s also a lot of background work gone on with both sample packs / sound design jobs, music production for media libraries and strangely as it’s not advertised anyway a good influx of mastering works. There’s lots of things in place for this year and a lot of work carrying through already. So all the best to you all for 2016 and I look forward to sharing new things with you this year.

Here’s an interview with Surgeon and an “in the studio” over on xlr8r.com. There’s some nice modular studio pics and a chance to get into the mindset of working with the format.
If you’re not aware of Surgeon here’s a couple of places to start.
A rare treat that is a new Mr Oizo release! There’s a tune with Charli XCX (both vocal and instrumental) and two new Oizo tunes “Being Flat” (listen below) and “The Rekurd”. Being Flat is from a new short film (of the same name) resurrecting Flat Eric which you can view below as well.
Here’s the third of four “Influences” videos from blockweekend.com. This time it’s Nicolas Jaar looking at his influences such as Keith Jarret. He talks about the effect of Keith’s improvisational style and how that had an affect on him.
