Things I Didn't Know I Loved

FELIX BLOXSOM

 

Felix Bloxsom and I went to the same primary school in Sydney. His father and my grandfather played in Jazz bands together. Years later we met at a party in LA where we had both re-located. Not long after he started playing drums in my band and plays on a lot of RETURN TO PARADISE.

He's now gone onto become the devastatingly handsome and talented DJ/Producer PLASTIC PLATES and has cooked up some very excellent remixes for the likes of Adele and Mark Ronson.

He's just released his first EP of original stuff on KTISUNÉ, entitled THINGS I DIDN'T KNOW I LOVED which you can listen to here!   Stay tuned for his remix of my song SHADES OF GREY which he has flipped on it's side... to be released in the near future.
