Eddy Temple-Morris presents
Thursday is the new Friday.
Club Remix is the most recent incarnation of Eddy Temple Morris’s universally recognized brand, The Remix. Marking the 10th anniversary as XFM’s flagship specialist music show and hugely successful superclub-night, Eddy decided to stage a weekly version at Camden’s Proud Gallery to celebrate what has become one of the UK’s most influential new music institutions. To this end Club Remix each week will feature the future of Indie and Electronica with three live acts performing before 11pm, whereupon Eddy and guests, comprising of some of hottest Dance DJs and producers around, will be doing their utmost to subvert ‘the home of indie’ with a hatful of leftfield beats and warehouse bangers until 2am.
To kick it all off on September 2nd, the bewitching and critically acclaimed Teenagersintokyo are Club Remix’s first headliners. Their debut album Sacrifice (out now on Backyard Recordings) recorded with Bat for Lashes Producer David Kosten, has been described as the most exciting subterranean music of the past thirty years marrying sinister, crawling synths with pulsing rhythms and screaming guitars. They have supported the likes of CSS, The Gossip and The Slits, had their own sell UK tour, been played across the Radio1, XFM and NME airwaves and recently topped the Hype Machine Charts with a Horrors remix of one of their tracks ‘Peter Pan’.
Club Remix is really pleased to announce its special guest DJ comes in the form of Jakwob. James Jacob aka 'Jakwob' has seen his nascent career take off in the last few months and is the most played artist on The Remix show in 2010. The 21 year old is in the curious position of having just finished his final year at university, while juggling a busy gig schedule, production work, daily remix requests, and being shot in September’s iD magazine! He's remixed the likes of Ellie Goulding, Kid Sister, Robyn, Empire Of The Sun, Temper Trap, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Penguin Prison, Audio Bullies and Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip. However, it’s his inherent eclecticism as an artist misspending his youth with Jazz before moving on to Death Metal and various folk outfits that seems to have manifest itself into his DJ sets that take in dub, hip hop, drum and bass, dubstep and beyond. Definitely not worth missing!
Since launching The Remix, Xfm’s leading specialist radio show and club night ten years ago, Eddy Temple-Morris has become the undisputed champion not just of genre-hopping but of genre-breeding, slipping enough pills into dance music’s pint until it finds itself curled up in the corner of the room with rock’s dangly bits in its mouth. It was the first in the world to debut the work of acts such as Pendulum, Kasabian, Mylo, Paul Epworth, The Freelance Hellraiser and Jacknife Lee to name a few. His DJ skills are legendary as are his admirers: “The first DJ in our history to get the crowd jumping and singing along BEFORE we get onstage…and he wears a good hat” - Liam Howlett, The Prodigy “Legend.” - Tom Meighan, Kasabian “The reason I'm in work here.” - Zane Lowe, MTV “The best f**king DJ in London.” - Javier E, Razzmatazz Super-Club, Barcelona. Nuff said!
