What’s on North West Newsletter March 2013


Hello Everyone,

I set up the What’s on North West group to enable people to come together and share valuable information.

The more people who share information, the more diverse the group becomes, and the more areas within the Northwest are covered.

You can share information directly on the Facebook page for others to view. If you would like something to feature in the newsletter, please get in touch.

Thank you,

  • Lippy Kid

    The Lippy Kid Electronica project is the creation of Chesterfield-based musician Paul Scott. Launched at the start of 2012, through the Lippy Kid project, Paul aims to create thematic, danceable melodies from minimal techno loops. Lippy Kid absorbs an array of musical influences from David Bowie, Radiohead, the Manchester Rave Scene, to Donna Summer with inspiration from electronic artists such as Sweden’s Axel Willner aka The Field and Gold Panda.

    Lippy Kid will be playing at the Inspire Festival on the 3rd of August.

    New music from Lippy Kid

    Néron Minimal continues my Techno Minimal Loops Electronica theme. This time each track is inspired by a poem or painting that takes the seasons as a theme – Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter.

    In keeping with my key interest and motivation for the Lippy Kid Electronica Project, i.e. that of artistic collaboration and “discovering creativity you may have once thought lost”, for this release I have worked with local Derbyshire artist Anna Krystyna Casey on all artwork associated with the cover art and liner notes.

    I’ve provided a brief update on the release via the news page on my website that you can read here. You can also read about Anna’s work on her own website here.

    The project has been really enjoyable and we’re both delighted with the outcome. I’m expecting to formally release the music at the end of March, and will be including tracks from the EP as part of the set I perform at the Inspire Festival.

Missy’s Vegan Cupcakes

All my cakes are 100% cruelty free, vegan, and made using home-made ingredients such as jam/conserves, wine, and chocolates. My cakes are for everybody to try whether you are vegan, veggie, or non-veggie. A lot of people think that because you are vegan, you miss out. I want to spread the word that you don’t have to miss out – in fact, I do believe that vegan cakes taste better than cakes made using animal-derived ingredients. If you don’t believe me, try them for yourself!

Missy’s Vegan Cupcakes will be at the Inspire Festival on the 3rd of August.
