In my latest Music Discovery programme on Soho Radio I had the brilliant Joy Anonymous join me in the studio for chats with Henry and Louis. We spoke about their music fast rising out of the global pandemic lockdowns, album number two, their friendship and collaborations with Fred Again, FaceSoul, tour plans and we shared some Iceland anecdotes and a mutual appreciation of Celine Dion.

For my latest Soho Radio #musicdiscovery show I had the London producer Hagan check in via voicenotes to talk about his upcoming debut studio album. He’s an artist and producer I’ve followed for a while now and we met a few years back when he came into the studio on my Foundation Fm show. Well, he’s back with new tracks Pray For Me and Sise Ntweni from the upcoming project and here he is discussing those. Cheers Brendan for the update, can’t wait for the album ✨✨✨
Listen below to the whole show which also featured live studio guests Henry and Louis from Joy Anonymous.

For this month's Music Discovery programme on Soho Radio I welcomed Aaron and Rob of Jacana People into the studio for chats as they were about to release their Myna Cycles collaborative EP with the very talented composer and pianist Neil Cowley.
The music of electronic duo Jacana People was first brought to my attention during the global pandemic lockdowns so it was great to finally get together face to face to find out about working with Neil, live plans and next Jacana projects in the works. Watch the video below and/or listen to the full programme.
Tune in to my next Soho Radio show = Tuesday 30th August 2022 between Midday and 2pm with live guests Joy Anonymous. Going to be a good one!
For my latest Music Discovery programme on Soho Radio I had the absolute pleasure of being joined by Clams Baker frontman of the band Warmduscher.
They were quite literally FRESH off tour wrapping a massive UK run in Brighton the night before off the back of their fourth studio album At The Hotspot, out the week before.
Warmduscher are one of the most exciting bands around right now, evident at their massive smasher of a sold-out Kentish Town Forum show on the recent tour. Here we hear all about inspiration for the new record, switching up the label, look and producers working this time with Al Doyle and Joe Goddard from Hot Chip. The band are off to Europe next and then have a summer of festivals including Glastonbury's Park Stage in June.
Listen to the show below (second hour for the action) and watch the video of us in the studio.

Julia-Sophie is a french-electronic artist based in Oxford that I connected with in the first pandemic lockdown and instantly fell in love with her music. She's back with a brand new EP, her third titled It Feels Like Thunder and it marks the first in a trilogy of work which she plans to share throughout the rest of the year. The EP came out recently on Anna Prior of Metronomy fame's Beat Palace Records. Here we chat all about it and what's next.... Listen to the programme from Soho Radio or watch our catch up over Zoom.
Joining me live in the studio recently was the pianist and composer James Heather. He's back with his second studio album Invisible Forces out on April 22nd on Ahead Of Our Time records. For this album the artists re-invested in his home studio and played a refurbished Bosendorfer 200 grand piano.
It follows last year's acclaimed Modulations: EP2, which I loved. Thematically his new collection muses on themes of personal connection.
Listen back to the programme in which he joined me live in the second hour to play some tracks off the new record and inspiration tracks by Pixies and Rachel Grimes.
New artist you need in your life alert! Had lush chats with Manny of Bad With Phones on my latest Music Discovery programme on Soho Radio.

For my final Soho Radio Music Discovery show of last year I spoke to electronic duo Dusky over zoom just before Christmas and off the back of the release of their album Joy, which was easily one of my favourite records of 2021.
Here's my chat with Alfie Granger-Howell and Nick Harriman getting into their process, nerding out over the samples used on the LP, getting back to gigging, their record label 17 Steps and their influences throughout more than a decade in electronic music.
Apologies for the added ambience of my kitchen renovation in the background!! Just great for radio ;-)
Check out their music.... @duskymusic on instagram or Dusky on all music platforms.
Listen to the programme monthly on Sundays 2-4pm... I'm back on air this Sunday 13th February with a new artist Bad With Phones dropping in live. Past shows and the Dusky show stream below:
This month on my Music Discovery programme on Soho Radio I had the most brilliant human, singer and songwriter Doug Richards from Isle of Wight band Plastic Mermaids come into the studio live to hang out and discuss their upcoming second studio album at length.

I had the pleasure of speaking the very talented British rising jazz star Emma Jean Thackray ahead of her performance on the main stage of We Out Here festival this summer.
