• BBC PYM6: Offline Editor Credits

Over the Christmas period I cut 6 episodes of the day time BBC2 series 'Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is.' There are two more episodes left, one tomorrow and the last on Friday at 5:15pm. I think Friday's show is worth a watch just for my particular music choices throughout!

Each week the series sees two experts fight it out to make the most profit from buying and selling antiques over a week of challenges. My particular pairing this series saw the infamous Eric "Knocker" Knowles take on John "The Hammer" Cameron. You can catch all the episodes on the iPlayer for the next couple of days.

• Cascade Records: Podcast 49 by Pogflipper

Photobucket
I discovered the French record label, Cascade Records, through Handbook's Podcast 42 mix. I dropped them an email and a few weeks later Sal replied asking if I wanted to design the artwork for their next Podcast.

When I discovered the artist I would be designing for was called "Pogflipper," I thought I had to base my design around Pogs. I remember Pogs being the very first playground craze that I pestered my parents to take me into town to buy. I also remember all the swapping, rip offs, Tazos, metal slammers and the pain of losing a substantial amount of my first collection to another boy during a game one break time.

Anyways! After designing my very own Pog I spent a Sunday afternoon mounting and cutting out just under 100 Pogs and Charlie Kirby snapped the photo for me.

Head over to www.cascaderecords.fr to hear the full mix and check out all the other releases. Thanks to Sal over at Cascade for giving me the opportunity.

• Handbook: "Layerism" Artwork

Photobucket
Here is my album artwork for Handbook's latest LP "Layerism" which is available on his Bandcamp Page: http://handbook.bandcamp.com I shot the photo from the window of a plane whilst on my way to Cannes last year.

Here's what Handbook had to say about the album:

"This album was created in February 2012 and consists of beats made up from layers of samples, which is new territory for me. In my mind, the most successful execution of sampling I've embarked on. I hope you all agree too."

• Slate The Disco Logo

Photobucket
Jordan Worland, Editor of Slatethedisco.com asked me to come up with a logo for his site. We tried a couple of different concepts and eventually settled on the above.

Slate The Disco is "an independent site dedicated to Cambridge's music scene. news + thoughts + chats + recommendations + listings all of the musical variety." You can find them on their own site, Twitter and Facebook.

• I need my Hands (New Year's Resolutions)

Photobucket
My New Year's Resolution is to sort out a herniated disc in my neck which is causing my hands to go numb. What's yours?
