Day & Night Terrace Party with Vakula || Lovebirds || Brackles at The Prince of Wales


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.

Listen Again – Crucial & Fresh w/ Belch (notsosilent) 02/05/14

Crucial Radio6post

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.


Taylor Williams – ‘Back To Heaven’ (Dub)


Back in the game. After a lengthy break due to massive online storage issue (and apathy). We are going to start posting again. We’ve still been active in the real world and have done plenty of digging of late. Expect lots of obscure B-sides, dubs, pitched down smoked out techno, ambient interludes and some fresh cuts from the wall. A recent trip to Record Loft in Berlin yieled a fat wedge of Chicago, this record being one of them.

Luma – ‘John Broadwood’


“John Broadwood (6 October 1732 – 17 July 1812) was the Scottish founder of the piano manufacturer Broadwood and Sons.”

It’s no surprise that this record has some big piano in it. Released on Optimo Trax last month under Dave Clark’s alias of Luma. This peak time behemoth went down a treat last Friday.
