Global Gathering 2007

Wristbands ahoy

Many thanks to the lovely people at MySpace UK for inviting me onto the travelling madhouse known as the MySpace Summer Daze Bus at Global Gathering.

Following a DJ set on Saturday afternoon, which went down well...

DJing in the MySpace Bus - Saturday

..it was back later that evening for some excellent sounds from ISSST and more lost hours than I care to remember.

God bless you, and all who sail in you....

Canary Wharf in the sun....

Canary Wharf, originally uploaded by OisinLunny.

After the torrential rain of last week, a crystal clear sunny afternoon, the view here is around the corner from where I work.

It's back to rain now, needless to say....

Monty's Mobile Dinner 23.07.07

Many thanks to Paul Monty Munford for a tremendous night on the tiles with an interesting crowd of Mobile Industry bods at the Develop conference.

The charming food was heavily outnumbered by liquid refreshments at Due South, Brighton, and when the mayhem subsided, slightly, it was all back to the Brighton Metropole Hotel for further mis-advertures.

If you want to find out more about Paul's excellent newsletter, worth it for the weekly intro alone, email paul.munford@playerx.com.

Interoute Express. Fast, friendly, file delivery, for free!

Aside from being someone who lives for music, I work with the company behind a big part of the infrastructure used for online distribution of music and digital media, Interoute.

Interoute is a Next Generation Network (NGN) owner and operator, and my role is managing the portfolio of
Online Distribution and Media Products. This covers streaming, CDN services, secure music environments, and more.

So... I get to work with some very cool new technology, and
Interoute Express is one of the most interesting products we have launched this year, check it out!

Interoute Express is the great new way to send large files directly from your desktop, and its FREE to download and use.

Interoute Express is an alternative to attaching large files to emails. Instead, it transfers files to a secure, managed delivery platform almost instantly, allowing you to send a unique automatically generated link in your email.

It’s easier than FTP and means no more issues with oversized email attachments or crashing inboxes. Simply select, upload, compose and hit send with Interoute Express.

here to get your FREE copy of Interoute Express now (PC only upload application, but anyone can receive files from Express).


PS - we might include some of your feedback on our website (with a link back to your website URL if appropriate) so let me know if you don't want your feedback published for any reason.


Daft Punk's Electroma - Strange & Beautiful

No dialogue ...... no music by Daft Punk..... sad, beautiful, deep.

It's being screened in selected Art House cinemas and festivals, visit www.electroma.org for details.

I was lucky enough to catch it in Stockholm last year, so blown away I kept the ticket!

Essential Music

A gem of gems from the archives of the Dalston Oxfam Shop blog.

I listened to this when it came out, and have to say it directly
influenced my record buying decisions for decades to come...
