Back to Coachella

We've just driven from Phoenix to near Coachella. Back for our second performance at the festival later. It doesn't seem to be windy like last week which is good news! Neil

Phoenix tonight

Amazing what you can do with cardboard and silver foil...

Phoenix

They've spent months sewing on thousands of plastic straws and the pointy hat lights up. Brilliant.

Diamond Version

Last year I sang on a track by the Berlin electronic duo, Diamond Version (Olaf Bender and Carsten Nicolai). It will appear on their debut album, "CI", to be released by Mute on June 2nd (May 30th Germany/Australia/Benelux; June 3rd USA). The track is called "Were You There?" and is a collaborative version of an old gospel hymn which you can hear now at the Soundcloud link below. Neil x

Last night

We had an exciting first night at Coachella. Drove through a sandstorm to get there and had to adapt the production because of high winds and sand and dust in the air on site. But the great audience made it worthwhile. Back next Saturday! Neil x

Frankie Knuckles

We are very sad to hear that the legendary Frankie Knuckles has died. The word "legendary" is rather overused these days, but Frankie Knuckles was a true dance legend and a pioneer of house music. We were honoured to work with him in 1988 when he did his brilliant dark mix of "I want a dog". It was so exciting to drive out to Jersey City to hear this mix for the first time in his studio and then drive back to New York with the mix on repeat. We were thrilled with it and included it on our album, Introspective. In 1990 Frankie came over to London to play at Chris's birthday party at Brixton Academy and enthralled the crowd with his brilliant set. In the early days, House music was referred to as "Chicago House" after the city where it was invented - it was great to visit the city last year and see that a street had been named after the music's inventor: Frankie Knuckles Way. Love and respect forever. xx
