When Scott asked me for a collaboration last October it was (as always) a very busy time for me. So I was quite happy to find some free time for working on this piece in the very beginning of January. It was a pleasure to work with Scott and I’m very happy that he likes the result as much as I do.
And fortunately Thomas Mathey was giving us the opportunity to place this work on his fantastic netlabel!
Here are the official liner notes from We are all Ghosts:
"I am proud to present "Abstraction (waag_rel043)" … 45 minutes of longform ambient joy.
I have a lot of love for the music of both Scott Lawlor and Earlyguard, so you can imagine I was very quick to respond in the positive when I was approached about releasing a collaboration that they had in the works … I didn’t think it would be as good as “Abstraction” is.
This is music for both the head and the heart, a late-night hit of somatic bliss that, in equal measure, inspires and comforts.
I hope you will enjoy this piece as much as I have.
An MP3 version of this album is available for free on Archive or a lossless version available on Bandcamp for ‘pay what you want’ which does include £0 … and remember, paying supporters on Bandcamp also get unlimited mobile access to the album using the free Bandcamp listening app.
If you do decide to download this album for free then all we ask in return is that you tell your friends, tweet a link or post it on Facebook, write a review and spread the word.”

Bobby and the Bubble Car
I’ve recently been working with the brilliant Joe Bichard on some short looped animations to be shown at Latitude festival this weekend. We also decided to make some fun gifs out of the work we produced and here’s one of them.
It was so nice to work on something more challenging that also had a really open brief! More footage from the collaboration to come over the next few weeks but I’ll leave you with this mesmerising bouncy bubble car for now.

The top photo is a picture of the Chernobyl nuclear plant from the top of a Pripyat hotel.
An extraordinary dj-mix supporting the political and cultural uprising in Turkey. Music by some fine Turkish artists, news clips from CNN, BBC, RT, Euronews, and the Huffington Post.
Excellent mix in many ways!
When Beck Hansen meets David Bowie and advertising. Genius.
