Hi all. A quick post from me just to flag something I did a few years ago.
To celebrate Father's Day this weekend, we hit the town with my little lad and had a pizza plus a stupidly large ice cream. It is crazy to think about what a stunner of a young lad he has grown in to. The few shots you see here are from Black Milk in Manchester's Northern Quarter, plus some of the surrounding graffiti you get in that area.
These four years have been simultaneously been the shortest and longest years I have experienced. Struggling to get through the hard times, yet unable to reconcile the messy haired ball of energy with the little baldy that I used to cradle.
Just after he was born, I got into thinking about how god damn difficult it was to cram everything into life after having a child. As someone who had a standard 9-5 job, I began to wonder how much more difficult it was for DJ dads doing their circuit. I reached out to some DJs--Luke Solomon, Ewan Pearson, Saytek, Eats Everything, DJ Food, Big Fish Little Fish and Jaime Fiorito--to have a word about their various experiences, ranging from newborn right up to being an actual son of an iconic DJ.
While I try and sweat off the calories of the various things I've eaten, enjoy these few snaps from the big day and have a scan back through these archive pieces from my past.
