Right, so what have we been up to? Well… we went to Australia a few months ago, that was pretty surreal, and overall a fairly incredible experience! We finished writing our album whist we were out there, did some well earned partying, met some kangaroos, shot a music video for one of the singles off the album and got to play a bunch of pretty spectacular gigs! Much love to Culture Jam for organising the trip and for making it such an awesome experience. Here's a few videos and photos:

A couple of month back we announcement our final collaboration for the Captain Flatcap album. We're honoured to have this duo feature on the release, I can't say I've been aware of them for that long, but as soon as I heard them I was hooked. Their debut album 'This is Heavy' out on Rocstar Records totally blew me away. Sick flows, awesome vibes, I felt like Hip Hop (at least for me) had been reborn! I can confidently say as well that the track we've been working on together… is wicked! I don't like to brag, but we flippin' love it! And I think you guys  might do too! Anyway, I'm rambling… ladies and gentlemen… GREAT SCOTT!

 

This now means we've announced all collaborations for the album. Just a reminder, we've also got Isabel Drake, Too Many T's and William Breakspear. Crikey, I can't wait for you guys to hear this album! The album's scheduled to be released around September/ October time. But before then there'll be a couple of singles, music videos and a bunch of previews as well. Keep you eyes n ears peeled on our Facebook so you don't miss out when they drop.

 

 

So, festivals are going rather well so far this year. Three down, four to go!

My weekly radio show 'The Vintage Remix Show' has just moved slot. It's now every Tuesday afternoon from 3 - 5PM. You can still catch every show live by streaming at www.kanefm.com, or if you're local to Guildford, tune into 103.7FM. Or you can listen afterwards via the Kane FM Mixcloud page.

 

 

 

Sweet! That's all for this time guys, I'm sure we'll catch you in a field very soon! I hope you all have a wicked summer, and don't forget to keep a look out for album previews appearing very soon! I'll leave you with a little video showing off some new tricks I've been learning on the decks. Enjoy!
