Entravanse Played on Ministry of Sound radio

Well, its been another hectic month in Devine land!!!! Lots going on, lots of travelling and all the plans now in place for what is shaping up to be a mega season for me this year in Ibiza. I’m so excited about the Judgement Sunday opening party on June 12th which will kick the season off for me and marks the beginning of my new residency out there – I’m itching to get started!!!!

Plenty to be getting on with in the mean time though – for a start concentrating on my first solo tracks – with two now completed. My first solo track – Entravanse was mailed out on CDR and received some fantastic reactions from some of trance’s top DJ’s, and was subsequently played on Turnmills resident DJ’s Gavyn Mytchell’s show on Ministry of Sound Radio just a few weeks back. A few tweaks have since been made to the track and already the revamped version is receiving even better reactions than the first. The track is now about to be remixed by a very recognisable name in the trance scene so there will be a couple of mixes of this track knocking around very soon. My second solo track – “Echoed Kisses” was finished just last week in collaboration with Ben Kaye. Initial reactions to this track have been awesome and this will be doing the rounds on CDR very soon also.

Gigwise I have had an absolutely manic few weeks too. At the beginning of March I went back to my home city of Manchester to play at 2 Funky up at Chic in Bolton. Previously known as Life Bar, this place has been playing out funky sounds for a while now and in fact hosted a radio one event a few years back. Its a bar / club – those venues which seem to be doing so well at the moment and this night was really cool. I am now monthly resident for the night so will be back up there in just a few weeks time for the next installment. Thankyou to Brett for helping me get the residency in the first place and also to Louis – 2 funky promotor and resident DJ. A week later and I was over in Canada to play for key to Ibiza alongside Lisa Lashes – and what a fantastic night it was. The club was much bigger than I imagined it to be and was one of those that looked like a converted cinema or theatre which went up in tiers all the way up the back and with the DJ being the focal point right down at the front above dancefloor level. The club was packed on the night and the crowd absoluetly loved trance. Many thanks to Jonny for helping to organise my trip over there, Gary and Helen for the booking and the fab trip to the Rocky Mountains, Dennis for housing me for a week and treating me to a hottub in the snow!!!!, ron for taking me to the largest shopping centre in the world and of course Nick. A big hello to all the people I met over there as well who were so supportive, and also just to say that Lisa also obviously rocked the house with quite a trancey set actually – but some awesome tunes and a lovely boyfriend alongside her (A* was accompanying her on her tour) who carried those awesome tunes for her!!!!!!!!!! The night went so well that I was then asked to play at the afterparty which I of course did (well it would have been rude not to!!) and again at the same club as the afterparty for funky night the following saturday. All in all it was a wicked trip and hopefully i will be back out there again later on in the year.

The weekend after I was back over in Majorca – this time for a gig at Pacha. i’m not sure why after 6 years of DJ’ing I still get nervous – but I was nervous before playing here!!! the club was packed and i think the name Pacha – which obviously everyone knows – has a certain sense of awe attached to it. I needn’t have worried though because the night went really well and again – hopefully I will be back there playing later on this year. Many thanks again to Gordon and Oscar for organising another brilliant night and an even better afterparty!!!

I’m back up in Scotland this weekend and again at the end of April and have gigs in estonia, Bolton and my first gig for a while in london in between. please see my events page for details and I will hopefully catch up with some of you at one of these nights over the coming weeks.

Speak soon,
