Come Home to Music

We wrote about the venue for the first time in Summer 2017 after going down to see Micky do his thing for 5 hours. Now head honcho miche is running tings handling the programming for both Spiritland venues and a few other spaces in London. Things have escalated nicely with both kyle and miche playing…

Culture featuring Idioteque & Grizz

These boys need no introduction to the local dnb scene as of 2017, and have been smashing things throughout 2018. They’re only getting started apparently with a release of their track “Sinister” out a few weeks ago and a bunch of shows already booked for 2019, Idioteque and Grizz are definitely ones to watch out…

Disco Juju

You guys may recall a few posts last year regarding Sam and the Disco Juju movement. Disco JuJu is a club night and collective of DJs in Bournemouth UK specialising in world music. It was great to be asked to get involved in another project pushing the same musical ethos as us here at lo…

The Annual Return Of The Illicit Groove

Bob Hill from The Return of the Illicit Groove joined us on the radio airwaves on Wednesday the 30th of January for his annual visit to yougoodthing & Friends aka the lo key collective. As well as curating an hours playlist which included tunes he’d played on a recent DJ visit to Belgrade to DJ…

What is the definition of eclecticism?

Nick Shearer I know in the recording above, Nick refers to his good friend ‘Bevis’ as Mr Italo, but I honestly have never heard of this section of music before I met Nick, and I’m particularly a big fan of the way he pronounces the word Italo in his husky northern tones 😉 2018 has…

Kalita Records comes to Westbourne

I’m sure you guys remember the few occasions we spent at Camden Bar, Westbourne over the summer… that Sunday we played Daft Punk’s Rollin n Scratchin at 1:30am when the party should’ve ended at 11pm, people on the tables and everything. Not forgetting that Thursday at the end of August when DJ Okapi had us…

A Sunday Afternoon in Westbourne

With the closure of the original Buffalo at the end of 2017, we knew that our Future People parties wouldn’t stop there. From our bunker party in late 2017, followed by the reuniting of FP and Buffalo at the new location in May 2018, I started to begin to crave something else. Playing incredible records…

Rose Red Records featuring Chris Rose

I had the pleasure of inviting down to radio the man behind my favourite record store in Bournemouth. Chris from Rose Red Records came down to educate me on his passion for music and the rabbit holes he’s found himself in over the last 7 years that the store has been going. Daring move to…

Sunday People

I first met tommy at South Coast Roast last year, where we used to party every Friday during the Eats N Beats era, and met a lot of nice people while we were at it. But when i met Tommy I knew that this guy was a serious digger. Since then I’ve invited him to…

Velo Domestique featuring Dan Armstrong

Enjoy this little trip down memory lane as Dan and I discuss the many cycling adventures we’ve had in and around Bournemouth since 2014. The two of us will be gracing South Coast Roast Cafe in June for an evening of music and fun social antics – Friday 22nd – event details will be live…

Lost Time featuring Joe O’dell

My mate Joe aka Ben UFO joined me this time for a nice 2 hours of House & Techno. In this show he pretended to be mute and didnt speak much on the mic at all cus his record label Hessle wouldnt have been happy as he was due at XOYO that friday but ended…

lo key’s Quick Fire Q’s w/ Luke Riffiths

I met Luke in 2014, when veloDan started putting on fixed gear bicycle races in Bournemouth. At this point, I’d only discovered hipster life a few years ago so I was still finding it weird that there were people into what I’m into, living in Bournemouth – some things never change they say. Anyway, it…
