mulletover are inviting all friends and family to celebrate their 6th Birthday with them over the April Bank Holiday – don’t they grow up fast. For this momentous occasion they are treating us to 3 Rooms of underground house, techno, dub and disco with a few birthday surprises and a birthday present for the first 600 people who purchase a ticket. To make things that bit extra special, mulletover have set a theme of ‘silver’. So whether you come donned as a disco ball or head to toe in tin foil, if you’re not coming in, unless you’re sporting some silver bling.
The eccentric and slightly crazy DOP play live and headline mulletover’s own room. The French trio have re-energized house music over the past few years, almost reveling in bringing new sounds to their productions, taking cues from their past work in jazz, reggae, hip-hop and rock & roll bands, they’ll be giving a full demonstration of their uncanny ability to make experimental music danceable. Producer and DJ behind Simple & Aus Records Will Saul, will be treating us to his distinctive sound of deep, futuristic house, techno and disco with flashes of soul and irresistible melodies that hark back to early days of Detroit. Matt Tolfrey is a workaholic when it comes to his music production, with a seemingly tireless dedication to forging his own unique style. Joining mulletover for the second time, he will be drawing on his own hybrid strain of electronic funk. mulletover’s very own Geddes completes room 1 with his distinctly deep and appealing signature sound.
The Resident Advisor crew bring gifts in the way of Levon Vincent, who is an honorary member of the tri-state’s Underground Quality crew Headed by label owner Jus Ed. He runs the Novel Sound label and also makes records for Deconstruct Music, a second label that he manages alongside longtime friend Anthony Parasole (of House n Home). Hailing from the talented family of CDR Sessions in London, Floating Points has been one of the most promising producers to watch out for this year with his various re-edits online have been spinned by the likes of Benji B, Gilles Peterson and Domu. Cottam has been hands down the biggest selling artist / label in Rubadub and other independent record stores in 2009. His unique brand of low slung house, disco, hip hop and techno is hard to beat with a DJ style is a bit like Surgeon meets Theo Parrish.
Tayo presents the third room with Lean Left. The last few years have seen the boundaries blur to the extent categories no longer exist. LEAN LEFT will concentrate on all that the 4/4 groove can offer with Tayo himself will be playing a very specially crafted house set. Get Physical’s Heidi is the second addition to the Tayo room. Heidi is fast conquering the dance music world and her impeccable tune selection has landed her a monthly slot on the BBC’s ‘In New DJ’s We Trust’ show on Radio 1. Frank Tope, who has been turning heads as part of production duo Wild Geese joins Joe Ransom, winning hearts with his heads down shoulder shuffling house music under the name STICKS & STONES. Finally the eclectic wonderment of Anthony Hill from the website and style leader FACT magazine. Good ears, great music taste, and a DJ as tight as a mouse's ear.
