No Hubie Sounds Tonight

9 February, 2016

"Chewie's on it..."

Hi everyone.

I’m currently in the middle of overhauling some computery bits in the studio, so I’m unable to broadcast my show tonight unfortunately. Many apologies for that. I’ve got a crack team of hairy technicians on the case so with any luck (and preferably with very few Wookiee strops) I should have everything back up and running again soon.

There should be some quality cover action, or equally excellent archive action while I’m off air, so you might as well tune into NSB Radio tonight anyway and have an aural boogie. Also don’t forget you can get your fill via the NSB Radio archives, which contain over 100 Hubie Sounds shows, plus all the other excellent shows on the station, so go nuts!

Cheers!

Hubie Sounds Will Be Back In December

10 November, 2015

I'll be back

Hi gang. Due to some family commitments I have to take a short break from musical shenanigans this month.

But just like Arnie, I’ll be back. However, I promise not to return by crashing a police car through your front wall. I will simply sashay into your ears, via the medium of NSB Radio, with another session of lovely musics. Nice and painless, hopefully. No bodycount required.

Anyway, in my absence there should be some excellent cover action, or at the very least our ever reliable Archive Robot will spring into action with only the finest selection of NSB Radio musics from our mystical archives.

See you all again next month 🙂

Secret FM Set Time Confirmed

Hi everyone. My set time on Secret FM at The Secret Garden Party has been confirmed as 9-10pm on Saturday (25th July) UK time.

If you’re going to be at the festival, why not pop down to the Secret FM studio for a boogie! You can’t miss it – it’s the big chrome Airstream next to the Cider Barn, in the field with the ferris wheel. Come down and say hi and I’ll give you a shout out.

For those of you who aren’t attending the festival, you’ll be able to tune in to Secret FM via The Secret Garden Party website.

Time Out

14 July, 2015

Time Out

Hi everyone. Once again, please accept my apologies but due to more annoying schedule clashes I won’t be able to present my shows this month.

I’m really sorry about that, but you can be assured that I will be back with a bang in August with some shows that will hopefully be well worth the wait, including an action-packed 100th show featuring some very special guest DJs, plus loads more. Watch this space or follow me on twitter for all the updates.

As usual there will be plenty of quality musics to keep your lovely ears occupied on NSB Radio in my absence. And of course you can always get your Hubie Sounds fix in the NSB Radio archives and also over on my Mixcloud.

Thanks for your patience peeps. See ya again very soon.

No Show Tonight

9 September, 2014

No show tonight

Hi gang. Unfortunately I won’t be able to do the show on NSB Radio tonight as I’m having some work done on the Victorian-era electrics at Hubie Sounds Studios today/tonight (who knew exposed wiring could be dangerous, huh?)

Many apologies, but hopefully there should be some cracking cover show action in my stead, and I should be back online in a couple of weeks. Big ups everyone.

Injury Time

8 July, 2014

Back Soon

Morning all. I have some exciting news… due to the mercurial Neymar breaking his backside at the World Cup, I have been called up by the Brazillian FA as emergency cover for tonight’s semi-final against Germany. To say this has come as a shock would be understating things somewhat, especially considering I’m not Brazillian and I am about as useful with a football as Fred’s moustache.

But who am I to question the wisdom of Big Phil Scolari? Keep an eye out for me kicking my heels on the bench tonight, I’ll be the one who bizarrely resembles Victor, or Thiago, or any one of the players who doesn’t get a run out whilst valiantly losing to the Germans on penalties…

Anyway, the upshot of all of this is I won’t be able to broadcast my show tonight. But fear not, there will be some quality cover action taking place in my stead, so I hope you can tune into NSB Radio as per usual. It will no doubt be the perfect soundtrack to tonight’s footballing shenanigans.

Speaking of my show, I will be taking a short break from the radio over the next few weeks as I pack up my studio and move to another radio dungeon. All being well, assuming I don’t lose all my CDs and records en route and the Interweb Fairy doesn’t faff about too much whilst setting up my new connection, I should be back on the air sometime in August.

In the meantime, much like tonight, the usual brilliant DJs on the NSB Radio roster will be covering my absence with some quality beats, so you won’t even notice I’m gone! But if, for some reason, you find yourself craving some Hubie Sounds action, don’t forget you can check out all of my previous shows in the NSB Radio archives, as well as on my Mixcloud.

Righto, that’ll do for now. I’ll make sure to keep you all updated with my studio relocation progress (as well as my heroic non-appearance at the World Cup).

‘Til then! Cheers!

Hubie Sounds 079

24 March, 2014

HS079

Hi everyone, I have some good news and some bad news for you. I’ll kick off with the bad news… unfortunately, due to a prior commitment, I won’t be able to broadcast Hubie Sounds on NSB Radio this Tuesday.

However, the good news is two fold! Firstly, there will be a quality show covering me in my absence on Tuesday, so do tune in to NSB Radio anyway, you won’t be disappointed! And secondly, I will be recording this week’s show as a podcast instead, which will be available to stream and download on Wednesday morning, so you’ll still be able to get your Hubie Sounds fix! Here’s what’s going on…

As some of you may already know, me and my buddies over at Bass[sic] are involved in the Rockit Science 6th Birthday Party taking place at The Big Chill House, here in London, this Saturday night. This party will feature members of British electronic music royalty, including Daddy G of Massive Attack fame, Portishead‘s Andy Smith, and the legendary Normski!

Anyway, to help promote this party, I thought I’d do another Focus On… feature on Hubie Sounds, this time focusing on Bristolian Trip Hop pioneers Massive Attack, featuring a selection of their best tunes from their award-winning albums Blue Lines, Protection, Mezzanine and Heligoland.

As well as that, I’ll also be spinning my usual selection of fresh beats and classic tuna from the realms of house, breaks, hip hop and LOADS more!

The Hubie Sounds 079 Podcast – Available to stream & download on Wednesday 26th March – Check this website and/or follow me on Twitter for all the updates!

Cheers everyone!
