'In her music, you can detect influences ranging from the skittering female-centred rhythms of The Slits and The Raincoats; the bleak, bewitched emoting of Portishead's Beth Gibbons; the otherworldliness of Björk; the fire of Nina Simone, as well as more contemporary electronic sounds. There're some big names in that last sentence, and rightly, because you should expect big things from Mwen...' -

'Interesting stuff...I can't imagine anyone right now who's making songs that sound like her...'  -

Gig review (oh yeah, played a gig the other day) 

So clearly I forgot to mention that  I was going to play a live set this month out in East London. Well, I did...On the 14th March. I really am getting quite absent minded where this here website of mine is concerned! How shameful.

ANYWAY, the gig was great, the crowd was amazing, everyone danced and all my new songs and stuff (to be revealed online in time) went down a treat.  This is how I percieved things at the time and turns out so did a lovely reviewer in the crowd.

Here's a review I found posted about my set.  Luckily, I didn't know I was being reviewed at  the time - not sure the resulting write up would have been qutie so glowing 'cause of all that pressure and what not.

Kane FM Guestmix 

It seems I've been spending a lot of my time doing guestmixes for radio shows. Can't complain really, few things make me happier than rinsing it up on the mix and sharing fresh tunes with the world.  
Have a listen to a swift mix I did for the Wizard Sleeve show on Kane FM.  If you like it, click through to my Soundcloud page for the dowload : ) While you're there, you may as well help yourself to other mixes I've done in the recent past - they're all available for download. 

'Moves' EP - The Remixes 

Here's some exciting news - My 'Moves' EP which was released in March earlier this year is to be followed by a remixes EP due out on Monday 30th July! Exciting times indeed.
If you haven't already, here's a chance to sample some of the electronic delights that will be on the release. Once your appetite is adequately whet you'll be able to buy the EP from the usual download store suspects - iTunes, Amazon, Beatport, Juno etc.

Last week I did a wee guest dj mix for the lovely ladies of the Queen of Clubs show on Frequency FM Leeds - I keep forgetting to mention these guestmixes in advance!

Take a listen...
