It’s a TTK first as we invite one of our favourite underground house producers back for another Kittencast and the first mix of 2015. Space Jump Salute last took to the decks for us in 2013 with Kittencast 0813 which proved to be one of the most popular mixes of the series and now he’s back with one more. We caught up with the Birmingham boy to find out what he’s been up to…
Hey SJS, it’s been over 18 months since you last did a mix for us – what’s happened since then?
A lot has happened in the past 18 months. Ive had a number of releases and done remix work for the likes of Mike Mago and DCUP as well as working on a bucket load of new music that I am very excited about.
Rumours are that you have a forthcoming release on the massive Black Butter Records label – tell us more!! Any details on any other tracks in the pipeline?
Yes I have an original track coming out with Black Butter through there next compilation and I can’t WAIT for you all to hear it! I also have a few tracks coming out on a number of amazing labels such as Mike Mago’s Bmkltsch Rcrds but thats all I can say at the moment. Very exciting stuff coming up!
This Kittencast is certainly a fun party mix with a bassy house vibe and includes some modern classics (including a Julio Bashmore favourite) – what made you dust off these tracks for the mix ?
Well I wanted to have a mix that included some new tracks Ive been playing out that are pushing the House scene in new directions but I just can’t get enough of some good old classic house tracks that always kick it up a notch.
You were busy last year playing in venues all over the country – what stood out as your favourite gig of 2014? And if you could pick to play any club or festival where would it be?
Yes I was traveling around quite a lot last year, played some amazing shows and performed for some amazing crowds. I would have to say my favourite one though would have to be Global Gathering, that atmosphere was just ecstatic and I was able to rub shoulders with some artists I have always looked up to.
I think I would love to perform at the Nest In London again, when that place is full the vibe is just crazy!
Are you planning on playing live much this year? Where can we catch you?
This year I will be mainly focusing on my DJing with some live shows dotted about. Ill be updating my tour dates soon so keep posted on my facebook page!
And finally if you were a techno kitten for the day what would you get up to?
I think I would have to just chill out and have my fur stroked to get over the crazy night of dancing to techno music all night long!
