  • My First CDR – Michael Mikkelsen

    When and where did you first attend CDR? It must have been five years ago down Plastic People.

  • My First CDR… Eric Lau

    Watching artists mature through their musical careers is a major part of the sentimental side to CDR. It’s been a while since we first crossed paths with Eric Lau and those Freeness days. Definitely, time we caught up with the London-based producer, let’s go!  When and where did you first attend CDR? What do you recall?  Back

  • CDR x Dimensions Festival family: Theo Parrish

    If you attended Theo Parrish’s sermon of sense at State of Independence last Thursday evening, you’ll know Theo’s reach goes beyond dancefloors.

And two, gees those three cats have created a wealth of brilliance with their Eglo Records. April 2013 means Eglo will turn four

  • CDR Preamble: Dobie

    A one-off, Dobie has been a friendly face and pioneering individual in the history of British soul, hip-hip and subsequent bass music developments for time. Since his days running with London Posse to his current Ninja Tunes he moves dancefloors, old and new. Prior to this month’s CDR London we shared some Qs and As with Dobie who’ll

  • CDR Preamble: Phil Asher

    A Restless Soul and prolific producer, Phil Asher’s soulful fingers have been in numerous sonic pies for some time. From DJing at “London’s first House club” Delirium (back in ’91!) to co-founding the (truly legendary) Co-op nights, in recent years his journeying, broken or four-to-the-floor sets at Inspiration Information (Notting Hill Arts Club with Patrick Forge) and
