Friday night was a ripper. Thanks to all that came down danced and talked shite to each other. Follow the links and check the quality gear that Rohan has out there already. He also mixed with us on our radio show prior to the party, this will be available shortly. More events in the pipeline.

“Having recently made the jump from Melbourne to London, Rohan Bell Towers hasn’t wasted anytime making an impression. After releasing two records on Munich imprint Public Possession, delivering an impeccable Juno Plus Podcast and just partaking in the mandatory Boiler Room mix we are in no doubt that Bell Towers is more than qualified to bring the heat.”

tumblr_mnmtgv8s211qg663ro1_500

Eighty Six productions have asked us to play at their London party debut this Saturday at the Prince of Wales in Brixton. It’s an all day / all night terrace party sort of affair with the likes of Vakula, Love Birds and Brackles all playing. Myself Brixton local self proclaimed ‘badman,’ Flaxman will be taking control for a  4 hour back 2 back reach around session from 7 – 11 pm. To top it all off its a bank holiday weekend as well. Bevvy and dancing and never going to bed.

You can buy tickets through the Resident Advisor page here and check the event Facebook page here.

In the meantime here’s a little slice of Chi-Town goodness from Marco Spoon, Gotta Get Back In Your Arms, the dub version. You can also catch myself  (Semi-Deluxe) and Dr. Astroturf playing a 6 hour set at the Lock tavern this Sunday night. More details to come.

TEESH BOLLYWOOD DISCO PARTY – Top 5 Bollywood Recordings.

10268447_10152300751017856_8297782159752940528_n

It is Friday tomorrow, more importantly it is the second Friday of the month which means it is time for TEESH. Joining myself and DJ Cheers is previous contributor and stalwart friend, young gun DJ Yves. (Check his TPA Mix Here).

We are going totally off piste here, throwing down the standard ‘House & Disco,’ instead it’s Bollywood all night. So here are my top 5 Bollywood tracks, in no particular order,with plenty of misinformation, inaccuracies and preconceived ideas. Get to the event page HERE. Yarrrr?!

Bappi Lahiri – ‘Come Closer’

As sultry as they come, this turbo steamed love hit from the 1984 movie Kasam Paida Karne Wale Ki starring Govinda, Juhi Chawla and Raj Kiran should be used with discretion. Not suitable for the dance floor and will probably get anyone in to bed with you. For the sample spotters: ‘ONRA – Come Closer’

 

Chaalbaaz -‘ Na Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai’

This is absolutely bonkers, the video comes highly recommended. Look out for the Part Time Lover parallels and the latin freestyle-esque sample  interludes. 

“Anju and Manju are twins separated when babies thanks to their mentally retarded nanny. An evil uncle Tribhuvan gets their parents killed in a car accident. He brings up Anju as coy and easily frightened girl. Manju grows up in a basti as a happy-go-lucky stage dancer…..” An absolute classic

 

Hassan Jehangir – ‘HAWA HAWA E HAWA’

Not strictly Indian (Pakistani in fact) this ones all about the big synth stabs and the drum fills. As usual the video is a top drawer. No doubt this will do the damage down your local discotheque.

 

R.D. Burman (with Asha Boshle and Kishore Kumore) – ‘AA DEKHEN JARA’

Never one to over use the word ‘big’ but this one is, Big. ‘Rahul Dev Burman was an Indian film score composer, who is considered one of the seminal music directors of the Indian film industry.’ This is lazy writing but I’m on my lunch break, my tiffin box awaits. If you are interested in this stuff then use Google. Here is a handy link to Google. Lots of good sound effects, lazers n’that on this one. Getting a War of The Worlds ‘vibe.’

 

 Charanjit Singh – ‘Raga Megh Malhar’ 

Simply couldn’t leave this out. Close your eyes and pick anyone of the tracks on this album. Listen to the whole thing here. Rather than paraphrase this about sums it up nicely. 

It was originally made in 1982 by a Bollywood soundtrack composer, intending to capitalise on the disco phenomenon with a combination of centuries-old classical Indian Ragas set to a disco backing. To achieve this Charanjit used a prototypical acid set-up of Roland TB303 bass melody sequencer and TR808 drum computer together with a Jupiter-8 keyboard. He basically created a sound which mirrored, and more importantly, pre-dated the first acid house record – Phuture’s ‘Acid Track’ by five years, and even preceded Chip E’s ‘Jack Trax’ in 1985.’

Put that in your Juan Atkins and smoke it.

 

Listen Again – CRUCIAL und FRESH! Radio w BEST INTENTIONS

1236786_813506671996313_289546533_nHere’s another chance to listen to last Fridays radio show, airing from 8pm til 10pm in Hoxton’s MEATmission.
