Meat Katie ‘Lowering The Tone’ Episode 21 (Damon Pages Oliver (OLY) CEO of Blazing Swan)

Ok. This episode (music-wise) as always, expect a trip into the underground. This time round I belt it out in the mix, mainly because I have had the pleasure of playing some really kicking festivals this summer and it’s simply where my head was while putting this show together!

For the interview, I had the opportunity to grab Damon Pages Oliver- Who is better known to his friends as Oly. He is the CEO of Blazing Swan; an event held in Western Australia every April, which I was lucky enough to perform at earlier this year. Oly gives us a fascinating insight into the inner workings of Blazing Swan, how it came about and the future... and what makes this event so special!

Oly is a proper character and I thoroughly enjoyed my conversation with him. I’m at the stage now with the show, where it’s nice to be able to take a look at the bigger picture when it comes to alternative culture and chat with people on the other side of the fence.

I hope you enjoy the show, please share the link if you do!

Meat Katie - 'Lowering The Tone’ Episode 18 (With Chicago Loop Interview) 

This time round I had the pleasure to sit down with Ant Wilson Aka 'Chicago Loop' and have an in-depth chat about starting your career again from scratch, life after the London Acid Techno scene and naming himself after a ring road in America.

As I have mentioned before these are not so much of an interview more of just a laid back conversation that veers off in all directions, that's the charm though IMO, listening back to this one I think it will appeal to DJ’s who wish (and do) travel because Ant is a well seasoned DJ who has some great stories of his on the road experiences around the globe, I found his story petty inspiring I hope you do to.

As you should expect by now I explore many genres mix wise but keeping it Techy based. As promised in the show I will bring back the ‘Deeper Selection’ next episode.

So if you enjoy the show could I please ask you to share the link, Re-tweet, Re-post, Like, Comment, Rate & Review … (you get the idea :-)

I hope you like it, talk soon
