If you’re looking for a smooth, seamless and stylistically beige journey across the house nation you’ll be disappointed. Likewise, if it’s head-nodding, rectum chasing, blokes-only tedium which flicks your switch you’ll again be left in the dark. However, if you’re prepared to free your mind and leap around your bedroom or hug that dancefloor (yeah that one over there) then the guy who, without exception, is the only chap to use the word mega without you wanting to clock him is your man: kraut rock, punk disco, acid house music without a home, electro-pop and current floor friendly classics.
Need some more clues? Well, he’s played alongside the likes of Andy Weatherall, Richard Fearless, Neneh Cherry and Erol Alkan; he was also proud of teaching Helena Christensen how to mix. You might have heard him play at Bugged Out!, Homelands, V Festival, Glastonbury, Fabric or The Bestival where he has laid the foundation for acts as diverse as Blondie to the AFX Twin and Adam Ant to The Village People! Having had residencies at Shoreditch House and The Queen of Hoxton Milo is not afraid to preach a more laid back and svelte sermon if required.
One more thing: He used to have the best show on London’s Kiss 100FM – guests included Miss Kittin, The Scissor Sisters, Air, Tiga and Goldfrapp – he also rocked Bestival FM’s cosmic cabin for many a year.
With a load of festivals booked in for this summer you may well have your ears warmed and your feet primed for action, by holy decree of Rev Milo. However, if still you remain impervious to Milo’s box of sonic delights, please remember this. Someone whose favourite saying is ‘Keep on rocking in the free world’ can’t be all bad.
