Our lovely guest ZTG of REALLIFE fame will be joiningg us at the Lost and Found Tent at Bestival. There’s some serious rippers in this one. Really looking forward to this one. In the words of ZTG “going to drop some wonk on these lads.” ENJOY
“The designation Lord of the Isles (Scottish Gaelic: Triath nan Eilean or Rìgh Innse Gall) is today a title of Scottish nobility with historical roots that go back beyond the Kingdom of Scotland. It emerged from a series of hybrid Viking/Gaelic rulers of the west coast and islands of Scotland in the Middle Ages, who wielded sea-power with fleets of galleys.”
Big mix just in from Richie Sanks of Cheltenham who sacked off Christmas with his family to record this in time to fill the post Christmas – pre New Year hole. Sank’s is a superb DJ, cutting his teeth in the basements of Manchester and Leeds whilst digging all things from boogie to house and whatever you may find in between. He played Beacons this year, Oxjam Festival, Peckham and has supported Bullion in Stockwell. He has even played backstage at Field Day this year where Solange Knowles took a shine to the Aslan boys and their impeccable selection. When asked about his style influences he says this season he’s been super inspired by LuckyMe’s very own DJ Paypal.If you fancy seeing him and the Aslan Institute in the flesh and you’re after belter of party get down to the Lock Tavern this NYE – Lock Tavern – ‘The Paradise Discotheque.’This mix is sure to rid you of that ‘Seasonal Adjustment Disorder’ you’ve just self diagnosed yourself with. Enjoy.

Flaxman has just sent us this oh so fragrant – vinyl only – house mix. Recorded live from his palace in Brixton, Flaxman or Joel Stephens to his friends, has played in Manchester and all over London. He hosts the Aslan parties, supported My Panda Shall Fly at Oxjam, Peckham, played on NTS radio, Beacons Festival, Field Day and has even joined us in the basement at ‘Crucial und Fresh.’ You can see him motivating the dancers and begging to know the tune this NYE at the Lock Tavern. When asked how he approached the mix he simply gestured towards the hat. Never one to mince his words. Expect all the flavours. It’s Flaxman.
Tonight sees two sweatboxes host two intimate happenings. Seperated by exactly 404.1 miles Edinburgh’s Sneaky Pete’s sees the second installment of TEESH with Witness hero Atticus Jacks. At the other end of the Island, hidden under one of East London’s Japanese restaurants we bring you the first ‘Crucial und Fresh!’
If you are attending ‘Crucial und Fresh!‘ we implore you to arrive early. Demand for the the event is very high and constraints on space mean capacity will be limited. The music starts at 9pm working its way up to 11pm when the volume goes up and the seating is removed. There will be no choice but to dance.
Looking forward to tonight. Bring the heat! (expect it to sound like this)
