Deep beneath London Bridge Station, in a dimly-lit yet spotless laboratory, beakers of a strange translucent red liquid bubble away abiove bunsen burners, giving the room a gentle sunset glow.

A beautiful aroma wafts through the air - part bitter cherries, part melted wax, with an edge of the pungent mirasol chilli.

Giuseppe's secret formula serves two purposes.

It is the blood that flows through the veins of "From Up Here" - his weekly selection of misty mellow electronica and shoegaze on ZoneOneRadio.

But it's also a dietary supplement which he uses in his role as Nutrition Consultant to the Chinese Olympic Swimming Team.
