Hey sitting in the office before the show..it's bucketing down rain outside. Winter is here. Can't belive the Summer is over..it's been good though..

Isle Of Wight Festival, Wireless in Hyde Park where I interviewed Daft Punk, Glastonbury, Fortdance in Russia, all those trips to Ibiza, playing that castle in Jersey, Creamfields, TDK festival, electric Picnic in Ireland and the grand finale, Bestival. I have one more trip to do. Next Wednesday I'm off to Malawi to DJ for the Lake of Stars festival. I'm going on my own so it's going to be interesting. I'll bring my camera as always. Then the DJ tour (see line ups below), the new TV show (Sound on BBC2, Saturdays 5.30pm) and the new Radio show (Switch, Radio 1, Sundays 7pm) start. The Mash up will still be alive and kicking, an hour earlier than usual. 9pm on Fridays here we come!

Jaysus. I've started taking vitamins for the first time in my life.

Thanks for all your comments below about bestival... here's a pic of the stagedive at the end! it was so much fun by the way.. so civilised.. I felt very safe in all those hands..and was politely placed back down on top of the decks with everything intact, flip flops still on and everything. LOVED IT.

    I would be happy if you come to Portugal one day. There are all sorts of Festivals of electronic and experimental music they even did a dj party on the beautifully renewed Rossio Station in Lisbon. If you ever come here tell me :)

    Civilised is a key word. I had great experiences including meeting some artists because you don't over react... we are all human aren't we?

    I haven't attended to many concerts this year. and I didn't want to scedule for anything on my vacations so maybe I'll go to the Patti Smith concert October 28th in Lisbon.

    Anyway just keep telling us you are having a blast and meeting interesting civilised people.

    (there seems to be a problem with your image server, no picture at this point)

    Hey Annie,

    Have fun in Malawi – I was born there a ¼ of a century ago. You’ll meet plenty of welcoming friendly faces who just love the music.

    If you like seafood try the ‘chambo’ fish while you’re over there.

    All the best. :)
