Delighted to be part of this release!: the 50th anniversary reissue of Harmonia’s ‘Musik von Harmonia’. This album is one of my all time favourite records and has had a huge influence on me musically. 

The reissue includes the original album plus a second vinyl of excellent ‘reworks’ from the likes of James Holden, Marta Salogni and Michael Rother himself. 

As Dextro, I did a rework of ‘Watussi’, a song that I have so much love for that it felt slightly strange reworking it. The original is an intricate and complex dance of rhythms and melodies. Doing the rework only gave me more respect for the incredible work of Michael and band mates in the making of an absolute classic. 🙏🏼❤️

Big thanks to Mareike and Groenland Records for putting this together. Out soon as part of record store day 2024 (April 20th)!

A lovely evening was had at Fell Foot Wood for Inverted Grim-Mill In The Woods. It was wonderful to be able to play the ‘Pancosmodrome’ along with a sunset in the forest, and among good folks. Finally met Barry The Blackwood Baptist too, and The Moon Pool spirits were something to behold. Thanks to Jonas of Inverted Grim-Mill Recordings for organising and all the other acts, who were ace.

2020 was a surreal year. 'An Hour is a Sea' was released amidst the initial chaos in May,  and I hope it provided some solace for folk.

Thanks to all who came down to the show at the North of England Institute of Mining and Mechanical Engineers last night. Nice work On the Bridges for putting it on. A great night and it was cool to play with the wonderful Loscil.
