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 impeccableJuno 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.”
Last week climbing up dangerous non compliant ladder of death and into the studio with us were Joe & Si (Farmfest DJs)
So Farmfest Dj’s you may be wondering? Their name comes from the intimate festival they created in the heart of Somerset, showcasing new and old musical talent, spanning a variety of genres. We went last year and we can assure you its well worth a visit if you haven’t already.
“FARMFESTIVAL STARTED AS A PARTY FOR FRIENDS AND HAS STAYED THAT WAY 9 YEARS ON.” You can buy tickets here
The boys played a top notch selection of disco/boogie, freestyle and house. Included in our set were the likes ofHi & Saberhagen, Atlus (see previous posts) and Guised. Make sure you check them all. This friday joining us for a special mix is dear friend Saul Wilkes of the Boogie Cartel. Promises to be good wan.
Another Djax Record with suitably appauling artfrom 1999. This is not particularly dance floor friendly but the percussion is appealing. Broody wee number. As seen on the Musicdesciptions Tumblr;“clammy, ominous atmospheres underpinned by stomping beats” etc etc.
The record shops are saying ‘easily the best thing to come out this month.’ Don’t bother mentioning the Doge thing, this is a formidable four track EP and like everything now its mysterious and limited.. For those still partial to a panic buy, Kristina still have a handful of copies.
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 theNotsosilent 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.
