Friday April 30th sees the third installment of Causes Of Colour at the Horse & Groom. This will also be the launch party for our brand spanking new website and joining Ali Tillett and Tim Goldsworthy will be Cottam, Diesel (X-Press 2/Moton), Joel Martin (Quiet Village), Trevor Jackson (Output - Playgroup), Jim Stanton and Severino (Horse Meat Disco)!
Tim Goldsworthy is one of the unsung heroes of electronic dance music. Having co-founded the legendary Mo'Wax label in the early 1990's with UNKLE's James Lavelle they went on to sign acts such as Air, Luke Vibert, Malcolm Catto, DJ Shadow and DJ Krush to name just a few! After leaving Mo'Wax and London behind he fled to NYC where he set-up yet another hugely influential label, DFA Records with LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy, where he produced ground breaking LP's for LCD Soundsystem, Hercules & Love Affair and Cut Copy. Having now relocated to Bristol, Tim has been working in the studio with Massive Attack, The Detachments and Goldfrapp! Once again Tim will be treating us to his new DJ/live set-up which sees him incorporating aspects of his studio into his an Ableton set stock-full of drum machines and EFX to create something a bit out of the ordinary!
Since the late 1980s Trevor Jackson has been causing waves as an art director, designer, film-maker, DJ and producer. In 1996 he founded Output Recordings and for the next 10 years he lent it his unique flair for visual and artistic identity, releasing groundbreaking records by the likes of Four Tet, LCD Soundsystem, and The Rapture. The music produced under his Underdog and Playgroup projects has variously touched upon hip-hop, psychedelia, dub and electronica to widespread acclaim, and as a DJ he is known to be doggedly open-eared and wide-ranging in his tastes.
Joining Tim and Trevor will be Warm's very own head honcho Ali Tillett. Ali has been behind the hugely successful Warm events agency for the past ten years looking after artists such as Ame, Dixon, Henrik Schwarz, Horse Meat Disco, The Revenge and Mark E to name just a few! Ali worked at Nuphonic Records before its demise and played at the now legendary London Xpress and Bridge & Tunnel parties warming up for artists such as Carl Craig, DJ Harvey, Metro Area and many more so it was only a matter of time before he got the ten year itch and wanted to get away from the usual two hour set so expect the unexpected!
Upstairs we welcome Warm friends and family to celebrate the launch of our brand new website. Paul Cottam is a recent edition to the Warm agency and the man behind the most talked about (and most brightly coloured!) series of disco edits last year, each one a perfectly rendered take on raw slo-mo house varnished in a deep-seated passion for soulful music. Joining Cottam will be Diesel, who as one third of the legendary X-Press 2 has been on the vanguard of electronic music since the early 1990s and as the man behind Moton Recordings is responsible for many a prime cut of re-edited dancefloor weirdness.
Joel Martin of Quiet Village will also be contributing his skills as crate-digger extraordinaire and Severino and Jim Stanton of the legendary Horse Meat Disco parties will also be coming along for the ride!!!
