From the Studio Floor | FESTIVAL OF SOUND

Like they say, there’s never enough subwoofers…for a cello. At the Festival of Sound in London, UNKLE co-founder James Lavelle and I performed REDUX: reinterpretations of 20 years of collaborations. James is like a brother from another mother to me and we have worked together for over two decades creating numerous tracks with UNKLE, movie soundtracks, installations and live performances.
