I just wanted to wish all my friends, peers and fan’s a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year for 2012!!
Looking back at 2011, I had one of my best years!! My highlights have included gaining my Ministry Of Sound UK Tours residency, headlining my first Ministry Tour event in Worcester and DJing on the Clubbers Guide tour in Sunderland. I must also mention the rather large 2ManyDJs event which Colours put on at The Arches in Glasgow (my live set can still be heard online now via my Soundcloud – details below!). I also returned to Ayr to spin with the G-Funk boys which I thoroughly enjoyed!
Production-wise, I’ve released my first single with S.U.Z.Y called C’est La Vie, which reached the Top 20 on Traxsource on release!! An amazing achievement that both myself and S.U.Z.Y are very proud of. In fact, we’ve been so inspired by it’s success that we have almost completed a full length album!! We’re putting the final touches to it, and we expect it to be released before June 2012. We’re both very excited about it, and can’t wait to let you guys hear it!! Before that, we’ve got our next single Perseverence which will be released in February, and our other new single All About The Love, which hit the Top 10 of Hed Kandi‘s recent Producer competition, coming out in the spring.
Let’s not forget the summer smash Aim High featuring my man across the pond, Morrisson! We’ve had great feedback from the track, and you’re sure to hear more Morrisson tracks produced by myself soon!
This year, I partnered up with Universe Media to bring you a brand new record label calledCSD Recordings. The whole point of the label is to bring out my own club music, alongside that of my friends and peers in the industry, with a focus on big room club music. The label already has support from the likes of Erick Morillo, Roger Sanchez, Tony Humphries and many many more, and we have a comp planned for 2012 which is looking very interesting indeed!
What else happened this year? Oh yeah, I launched my mobile app which you can open in your web browser and ‘add to homescreen’ for easy on-the-go access to all my stuff!! And to round things off, I’ve almost hit 1000 followers on Twitter!
So, thanks to all of you who have supported me this year!! Im off for some festive rest, before I strap myself in and prepare for a momentous 2012, here is my Best Of 2011 Radio show available for you to listen again or download, featuring a LIVE performance from S.U.Z.Y!! Turn it up!!
Have a good one!
