Hi!! Here is the first ever HOT DUB DOCO, a behind the scenes series I want to keep making this year. This episode is at Edinburgh’s Hogmanay New Years Eve Party 2014/15! It was an amazing night. If you were there I hope you see yourself, and if you weren’t there, you will want to go. It’s the best. I hope you like it.
Hot Dub Time Machine’s ‘Biggest Tour Ever’ was a massive success, selling out Sydney’s 2,000 capacity Enmore Theatre twice, the 2,000 Capacity Thebarton Theatre in Adelaide 3 times, as well as the 1700 capacity Astor Theatre in Perth, The Tivoli in Brisbane and the Forum in Melbourne. Hot Dub is now among the biggest DJ acts in Australia.
I had a blast playing the Mix-up stage at Splendour in the Grass 2014. There are some amazing photos here: www.facebook.com/hotdubtimemachine
Hot Dub has completely sold-out all 16 shows at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe! The 1000 capacity McEwan Hall right the heart of Edinburgh has been my home for the past month, and every single show, has sold every single ticket. That’s pretty amazing. Thanks Edinburgh
I had the awesome honour to open for Chaka Khan in the Domain as part of the this year’s Sydney Festival. Easily the biggest crowd I’ve ever seen, about 40,000 people all got down.
My first big outdoor Rock festival was awesome!!! I played Falls, Lorne, Marion Bay, and Byron twice over New Year’s 2013-2014. And it went crazy!! Such fun, huuuge crowds and hopefully a start into the world of mainstream music festivals.

Now for the details:
FIRST OFF: thanks so much for taking the time to find my page and like it! I really appreciate it. I try not to post too often, but each time it’s gone up by a few people I get a real thrill, and it’s so exciting to have so many people into what I do. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
ALSO, Don’t forget to check out my podcast Hot Dub Time Machine Radio, it’s on itunes here (http://tinyurl.com/k3s8dpn), I haven’t made a new episode in awhile, but I will soon I promise!!
SYDNEY: I’m returning to Australia in a couple of weeks and have an awesome gig lined up at the Beresford on Saturday October 26. This is my first home town gig since the Sydney Festival in January, so it’s going to be filled with wonderful people, I really hope you can come.
I’m also doing a tour of the funkiest spots in the country, so watch out Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and everyone else, Hot Dub is coming to you, before the end of November! Stay tuned for more details!
EDINBURGH: I’m coming back for the whole of December!! I’m playing in the awesome SummerHall! It’ll be like the McEwan but a bit more intimate and super fun. They’ve given me 3 and half hours to play with, so each night will be epic!!! Tickets: https://www.edinburghschristmas.com/HotDubTimeMachine
ALSO: the last gig of my stupidly long European summer is at the opal lounge in Edinburgh on Saturday October 12. I’m really hoping the fringe hot dub faithful will turn out and give me a bit of send off. It’s going to be quite special. Be quick on tix, coz capacity is quite limited. http://tinyurl.com/lqcshrl JAGER BOMBS AT THE READY!
GLASGOW AND ABERDEEN: I’m playing at the Garage in both cities on Friday and Saturday 4-5 October, and it should be pretty loose!
T-SHIRTS: I’ve got a limited run of Hot Dub Shirts and Singlets (Vests for the scots) made due to your constant nagging!!! And I will only be selling them for the next 10 days. You need to order one by Tuesday 8 October. They are 10 pounds, plus 3 quid postage for the UK, or 20 Australian Dollars total for aussies. There are three sizes, M, L and XL, (http://imgur.com/IVDj0KQ PROOF!) and a one size fits all singlet (http://imgur.com/kIWS3dT only ten available!). They are all quite big, so I recommend some T-shirt modding if you’re a smaller person, or groovy hot chick. Send me a message if you want one, and I’ll get back to you with the details!
And that’s it!! I’m now about to get on a train to Swansea and continue this super-fun freshers tour. Once again, thank you very much for your support, I loves you’s all! It’s been a thrilling year so far, and I have a feeling it’s only going to get better! I hope to boogie with you all again, very soon!!!
