Live Gig

The wonderful British singer Noel McKoy very sadly passed away on Thursday 3rd November 2022. I had worked with Noel over the years, having been introduced by Bluey from Incognito, and was lucky enough to have him sing for me in 2006 when I played a gig at Cargo in London, followed by a Maida Vale session for Gilles Peterson's BBC Radio 1 show.

On Saturday 5th November 2022, Gilles (now on BBC 6 Music) played a tribute to Noel which included one of the tracks from that session 'Let Me Be' which featured Noel on lead vocals.

You can listen to an extract from the show below, and catch it on BBC Sounds here

Ayota Live at Corsica Studios

This is a gig I did at Corsica Studios on Saturday 9th February 2013 for Guy McCreery's Third Ear Label, who released the Ayota album 'Helicopter Cuts' the day before.

It was the first time to perform Ayota solo, as usually I get Simon Palm Skin, Jeremy Shaw, Shawn Lee and a vocalist to help me out.

My setup consisted of Laptop using Ableton Live, Novation Launchpad and a Korg NanoKontrol2.

I performed a selection of Ayota original tracks & remixes.. I will try to post a tracklisting soon!

There is a hilarious bit in the middle when a guy came up to me and asked if I took requests.. and then asked if he could plug his iPod in instead of listening to my set. I told him to go next door to where the techno was...
