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
We’ve gone enough now but here’s your chance to listen to our last show where we were joined by BELL TOWERS. thx
Steve Lee is a busy man, a very busy man. Heading up his label (Above Machine Records), fronting his band (The Project Club), remixing for the likes of U KA on Groovitron, under the alias S L O, running parties east of London and Beyond… oh, and he’s a serious vinyl head. With all that its a wonder he found time to come on the show. However, he has and we’re honored to have him as this weeks guest.
Hear what Steve’s been up to, here, Read all about Steve, here on Test Pressing.
On the night of Friday the 2nd May, whilst you were busy trying to forget about your jobs, we were stood in a confined space, pushing Lynx Africa to its technical limit and furiously mixing our bi monthly radio show – ‘Crucial & Fresh.’ (bi monthly actually means twice a month and every second month?)
Climbing the ladder and into the studio with us was Belch of the Notsosilent party purveyor crew. Having recently added Leon Vynehall to their roster of residents and throwing parties in three major cities it would seem these chaps have set their sites on nationwide rooftop/club supremacy. For those of you who are in London and have a penchant for an all day affair, you should purchase tickets for their roof top parties HERE.
“notsosilent started throwing parties in Edinburgh in 2012 bringing guests like Midland, Joy Orbison, Roman Flügel and Gerd to the Scottish capital.
2013 saw the three-man crew add a monthly Glasgow party to their programming securing Scottish debuts for the likes of FunkinEvil, Moomin and Marquis Hawkes alongside other guests such as Move D, Prosumer, and Tama Sumo.
With one third of the crew now in London the party prepares to set up shop in the capital for 2014 with a series of rooftop parties over summer and regular monthly events alongside it’s Scottish program thereafter.”
As for the show, (these are his own words) Belch says he enjoys “employing individual elements from a variety of sources, systems, or styles,” in other words, he has eclectic taste. His mix does well to show off the extent of his musical knowledge. Apart from that, Belch genuinely looks like hes enjoying himself when he is behind a pair of decks, an aspiration that should always be high on disc jockeys list of priorities regardless of skill or genre.
Expect to weave in out of jazz funk, soul, disco, hip hop and house as Belch takes the reins for the first half with myself taking the second hour playing some Chicago tracks recently picked up in Berlin’s Record Loft and some new chin stroking house cutzzzz from the wall at Kristina. Cheers!
This Friday we will be joined by Steve Lee. Check his recent interview on TEST PRESSING.
