Feelings and Sh*t…
Sprained my ankle Tuesday morning so I’ve been a little out of commission. Normally, I’d be pretty sour and shit, but I have a lot to look forward to that’s great and a lot to look back on and be thankful for. Ever since Magnetic Fields Festival last year, things have kinda been on the up-and-up. I didn’t think I’d play the festival but to have been asked to really helped refresh my attitude towards what I do for a living. Then to find out I’d play right before Call Super at the RA afterparty at the certifiably cracking time slot of 4:45am made it just so much sweeter. And since then, that Boiler Room thing’s come around, plus shows and radio appearances around the world not to mention the honour of working at boxout.fm since its inception. And shit, July 2017 has been especially rewarding in terms of gigs and travel.
I have nothing but respect for DJing as an art form and I’m lucky to be able to do it week in and week out. That people have been able to recognize that commitment and have allowed me multiple opportunities to entertain them is certainly a privilege I don’t lose sight of. It perplexes me sometimes when I think I’ve been doing this for just a little over three years but the fact that I’m in a position to be able to do this for the next twenty is frankly, exhilarating.
So thank you, really. Doing music for a living is nothing short of incredible but to have your support alongside it means the world to me. An extra special shout out to Pavlina, Yohann, Kunal, Munbir, Erin and my folks and brother without whose support none of this would have been possible.
The monsoon is well upon us now and I’ve found some fine company in the new Cornelius album. Here’s a taste.
