Collocutor’s single Archaic Morning – as played by Gilles Peterson!
With me on flute, alto flute and piccolo…
And… the B side of the ep features the Emanative remix of ‘Instead’ by my new project Collocutor! Woohoo! Head to the Emanative bandcamp for pre-orders/digital download.
A great start to the project!
The remix of Collocutor’s track ‘Instead’, courtesy of the fantastic Emanative (who is also mixing the EP), was played on Gilles Peterson’s BBC Radio 6 Music a couple of weeks ago…
It started off the Backroom Babylon mix, about 2hrs 33mins in to the show.
It’s sadly no longer availble on iPlayer! However, Gilles only gave a taster of the track anyway – to check out the full works have a listen on Emanative’s soundcloud:
We had an amazing time playing at the annual jazz dance haven/heaven that is Another Sunday Afternoon At Dingwalls. What a great crowd, and what a lovely bunch of musicians to work with! There are some very nice pics on Gilles Peterson’s website:
Here’s a sneaky peek, go check out the rest!
Good news, good news – Emanative’s ‘Love In Outer Space’ feat. Ahmed Abdullah was played on Gilles Peterson’s BBC Radio 6 Music show on 1st Sept (ok, I know I’m late blogging this but I was away at the time):
