Hey Frantic, nice to see your name again. Every time I came across a Sleazy Beats record while shopping I took a moment to reflect and remember your porn stache.

Mmm, my direction has been a bit different...

About 2-3 years ago I ditched London, the corporate life and a boring/settled-down gf to move to Berlin. After a bit of figuring shit out, as of the last year and for the foreseeable future my life is basically now:
- Spend 20 hours during the week delivering food on my bike for Foodora to pay the bills
- Sunday shenanigans in Berghain/ P Bar
- Using my plentiful spare time to make what is likely to be utterly pointless, woefully self-indulgent electronic 4/4 "music"

Rinse, repeat.

Yeah it's pretty crazy. I checked back every now and then to see whatever happened to the site after 2009 or so. Then a few months ago I saw that Ben was rebuilding the site 8-)

It's great to be back and seeing all the familiar names!

As for me, been in the same job since 2005. Got fat, then got skinny again and got some grey hairs on me chin!

Travelled to Europe for the first time last year and going back in May. Kept up on house music off and on over the years. I started buying mp3 regularly after I bought a controller and became a proper hobbyist but still shop for old vinyl/collectibles. Want to get back into playing live; maybe private parties one or two every month or so.

Somehow I found your mixes on Soundcloud and I think followed you. I don't remember if I reached out to you to say I remembered you from here, but I know I just exchanged a few messages with cwmbran on Soundcloud.

Got married, bought a house. Stopped making music and started again. Still doing the occasional record, mainly focused on remodeling this fucking house.

Crikey. Without my knowing it ugh spasmed back into life, but it seems I'm late to the wake.

Nice to see some old names anyway. As for me: still alive, got a cat, got a phd, got married, stopped DJing, still listening. This is good: https://jaydanielmusic.bandcamp.com/

Cheers

oh hey guys.

Living in london, working in (pop) music,

Recently took my decks out of the cupboard after 5 years, and re-listened to my whole collection all over again.

Turns out i made some terrible decisions in the noughties.

Good to see this up & running, very fond memories.
