Afghan Headspin studio news Summer 2009

Been hard at it in the studio, first out the doors will be a collab we have done with Cut La Roc, just putting the finishing touches to it, working title "Got to get some!", everyone's really pleased with the results and this should go off on the floor. There is a cheeky bootleg also doing the rounds we are guilty of producing, we started our Glastonbury & Glade sets with it, and going by feedback, looks like many other dj's will be dropping it this Summer, not sure on a release, or whether we will give it away online, court is still out on that one. As for new original material, 5 yrs 10 yrs is getting a final going over, and then we hope to have a very special remix done, watch this space!

May 2009 Update

Mad mad busy it seems these days, studio work seems never ending, remix this, remix that, and now we've progressed onto collaborations! Namely Afghan Headspin v's Shut Up & Dance and also v's Cut La Roc, both pretty much done and dusted, and hopefully getting scheduled in the next few weeks / months.

We're also finishing off a remix of Shut Up & Dance's track CREAM, another session this Sunday and we should be done! We've uploaded a few new bits onto the myspace player, a new original track called "Beef Disco" for charity album "It's Good For The Soul", so give that all your support because the proceeds won't get spent on beer and sneakers, but people in genuine need of your money!

On the gig front we just got booked for Glastonbury, playing in the Pussy Parlour on the Thursday, the set being recorded live for later transmission on Annie Nightingales Radio 1 show! RESULT!

I'm gonna try and start doing a video blog, but until i get used to seeing myself looking a bit weird on the screen you'll have to do with this worded blog. Come back soon..... we need you!

Afghan Headspin - Southsea 11th April 2009

Afghan Headspin Spring Update...

So, where to start, things get crazier round here by the day! We've just finished a remix for APE of Lightshapers "On The Rocks", we're really happy with it, word is the original is now getting a vocal added, maybe we'll update our remix, maybe we won't, we shall see! We've also finished a remix for Cut La Roc's label Rocstar, of a track (name escapes me) by Playfellows, should be out this side of Summer. Masters have also been submitted for VALIUM003, 004 & 005! I'll do a proper update nearer the time of release, but lets just say we're really happy with the next 3 releases and hope it puts Valium on the radar a little.

We are about to start work on a collab with Cut La Roc for his forthcoming album, and also an original Afghan Headspin tune for a very special kids Cancer charity, i won't say anymore about that bar the fact there are many artists involved in this album and its got classic written all over it, and all in a great cause!

We have also agreed to take on Rennie Pilgrims track Eraser for remixing, we can't wait to get our grubby mits on the samples and do it proud, soon as Rennie is back from the Winter Festival (Seville) we should be under starters orders.

As for gigs we shall be hitting Southsea on the April 11th for Infected Breaks, so hope to see you there! To book us direct, hit us on afghanheadspin@gmail.com

Talking of gigs, we'll also be at Glade this year, check the flyer....
