No snow this year, just Scott and I handling the music for London’s long-running alternative market.  My 10th anniversary of first playing the event (and hence DJing all over the place since) – marked not only by a party a couple of days previous, but back to playing a full three hours here.   This also meant almost every style in my remit (omitting only power electronic, mittelalter and a few extreme metal genres) made it into the weekends DJing.

Apologies that we weren’t available for an Open Request List afterparty this time, but you don’t keep me away from Leæther Strip and you don’t keep Scott away from Cold In Berlin!

Alternative Bring’n’Buy Sale – June 2018

The Alt Bring’n’Buy had a break in the Spring, but it came back today.  As far as the DJing goes, I had originally planned to stop last December, but the break allowed me to find some fresh things to play, so whilst Scott and Zaira handled the bulk of the music, I still put in an hour 1pm-2pm.

I did considerably more DJing over the road afterwards.

Alternative Bring’n’Buy Sale – December 2017

The December edition of the ABBS was hit by snow on the morning of the event, but despite a thinner crowd than normal, we still carried on as usual.  Scott handled the early part of the DJ, whilst DJs Grimorg and Demondaz played later on.  This left me with:
