A short film by Palace made for the Palace/Adidas nature collection (Released May 20th 2022). Featuring Chris Yates (my dad) and backed with music by myself.


I was asked by the BBC to write a 40-minute piece to perform at their new ‘After Dark Festival’ at Sage, Gateshead. The festival was then broadcast across Radio 3 the following week. The segment of the festival I performed in was curated and hosted by Night Tracks, a regular programme on Radio 3, and the entire night of live music “Deep Night Tracks” was broadcast on Radio 3. You can listen here:

Happy New Year to you all!

To kick of 2021, I’ve got two new releases. One is tape only, and already sold out… So I needn’t post about it, only to say it was released as part of a V/A cassette on the Industrial Coast label, the artists working around themes based on the 1984-85 miners strike in the UK, focussing mainly on Yorkshire and Durham. Ispiration from The Redcoats, Women Again Mine Closures and Norman Strike.

I may well upload my track to Soundcloud and post it here at a later date…

The second release IS digital, and was a remix for Kelpe. Along with remixes from Photay and Mr Beatnick, and the original track written by Kelpe with strings by Galina Juritz.

You can stream the whole release here, or any one of your preffered streaming services.

I also released a new digital EP on Diskotopia at the end of last year which I haven’t posted here yet. So here that is too!

Enjoy and be well!


Again, it’s been a little while since I updated the site. But each time it gives me time to build up a small list of things to share.

Over the last few months I’ve done a live stream from my home “studio” for the Italian music blog/website Son Of Marketing. You can read about it HERE and enjoy the full live video below.

I also released a new tape album under my Halfnelson alias on the Industrial Coast label. The cassettes sold out in a matter of hours, but digi is forever and I’m selling it for 50p through my Bandcamp. Stream below.

Finally, I have the second installment of the O.G. Jigg project coming out NEXT WEEK (6th of November 2020) – Once again with a B-side packed full of excellent remixes, from the likes of FUMU, Best Available Technology, U, Grim Lusk, Bone Head and DJ Damage, Throwing Snow and Luke Lund.

The original music that makes up the A-side is a little more explorative this time, calling on synthersisers and a wider variety of instruments to create the atmospheres, but still being heavily informed my medieval and baroque themes. PRE ORDER GOING UP THIS FRIDAY.


It’s been a little while since I’ve updated the website again… So I will just quickly list the last few releases and a live stream that have passed by since I last logged in here…

Firstly there was my World Machine tape, released through my bandcamp under my HALFNELSON alias.

Then I did a live stream for the ‘Bristol Takeover’ online festival, to raise money for local venues struggling through the lockdown. I have since uploaded the live video to YoutTube.

Then followed another cassette release, introducing a new character O.G. Jigg – A collection of semi-traditional medieval folk skits and ritual sonics on one side and a host of remixes from excellent artists on the B-side. Remixes coming from J.Tripp, Iceman Junglist Kru, Best Available Technology, D.K., Mars89, U, Robin Stewart (Giant Swan), Wojceich Rusin, Unperson and Jackson Veil Panther (Avon Terror Corps)

And in the following weeks I have a new HALFNELSON tape coming on the excellent Industrial Coast label.



I was asked some questions about my new LP, ‘Invisible Cities’ among other things…
