Daniel Avery

Producer and DJ

In Conversation

We’ve got music on the mind this week, so we caught up with producer and DJ Daniel Avery to find out his favourite London spots. Get his new record Song for Alpha here.

What’s your favourite London venue?
London is great for venues but fabric remains a shining beacon of the underground scene. They took a chance on me incredibly early in my career and have supported me throughout.

Where do you go to celebrate?
I’m a big fan of Brilliant Corners in Dalston. They have a beautiful, delicate audiophile sound system and a less delicate Old Fashioned.

What are you listening to at the moment?
The new Skee Mask album on Ilian Tape is pretty special. I’m also very much into the Exit Rumination record by C.Diab as a complete escape from the club.

What’s your all time favourite London restaurant?
I lived south for years and most roads would lead to Ganapati in Peckham. I still try and make the pilgrimage as often as possible.

What’s your local?
The Gun in Hackney. The best drinks, the best people and the Lionel Messi of landlords.
