We've just about recovered from our 17th birthday party and what a party it was! Thanks to everyone for coming out of the woodwork, there were so many faces there from over the years and the atmosphere was literally buzzing because of it…. a night to remember, even if it's in a blurry sort of way! 17 years of Wiggle and we have to pinch ourselves sometimes to see if we're still awake, as the parties are just as strong, if not stronger than when they started all those years ago and one of the main ingredients of that, is all you lovely people who have stuck by us over the years and of course all the new recruits too! So a very sincere thanks to you all, you know who you are :o)
So onwards and upwards and in this case, very upwards! As Wiggle goes back to the Paramount on the 18th of June for it's last party there for a little while. We have secured with the Paramount that once the sun pops it little head up and over those amazing views of London, we will be able to bring the window blinds down enough to save our delicate eye balls from the sun if it's out. And while we survey the London skyline from 385 feet up on the 31st floor, we thought it was only fitting that this time we went with an all star London line up to match the vista for the night! Unfortunately Terry cannot join us this time, due to Fabric commitments, but the show must go on! Please remember that all the Wiggle's at the Paramount have been complete sell outs, so don't leave it to late!
Prolific and fearless, tireless and imaginative – taking only his work in the past twelve months into account, Glimpse demonstrated a quality of work and range which only a few can be said to have matched. World renowned labels such as Crosstown Rebels, Planet E, Cadenza, Cocoon, Get Physical and Buzzin Fly are just a handful of those to have released his music. A particular milestone was his Crosstown Rebels album Runner’, released in May 2010 and was a standout LP even for a label noted for its consistent excellence. Ending up being both a critical and commercial success in what was newly a more house orientated style Runner’ was the peak in the year which saw Glimpse receive a second consecutive nomination in DJ Magazine’s ‘Best British Producer’ award.
Geddes is one of the true pioneers of the London house scene. Among those ahead of the game when it came to the fragmentation of the super club and the dawn of a new warehouse era, Geddes and his mulletover party crew were integral in the rise of the underground and have helped shape the heart of its landscape and sound in the capital and beyond. When he started the now prolific mulletover events back in 2004, it was through grit and determination and an enduring love for exploring and championing the freshest talent and securing original spaces that Geddes became a figurehead in the evolution of a thriving house and techno scene.
To call Colin Dale "legendary" is no over-estimation.......here is a Dj that has been one of London's most cutting edge Djs for over 20 years and still continues to surprise and marvel. Music was always a big part of the Dale family's life......Soul, Reggae, Jazz and Funk.....even before Colin left school friends included Fabio, Grooverider, Dave Angel, Jumping Jack Frost and Bryan Gee........all who went on to be top Djs in their
respective scenes. It all began in 1982 when Colin who was then working as a banker in the city of London began to warm up for Hip Hop supremo "Tim Westwood" at the cult Gossips nightclub in Soho playing cuts like Soul Sonic Force, Strafe, Shannon and Donna Summer. In 1985 Colin was one of the key members of the pirate radio station Kiss FM and soon after left banking to pursue a career in music and the "Abstrakt Dance"
radio show was born. For 16 years "Abstrakt Dance" was a ground-breaking show which quite simply bought Techno to the masses.
Dave Mothersole started Dj'ing in 1990. He initially made a name for himself on the early tech house scene playing at parties like Wiggle and Heart & Soul. He quickly developed a style that defied categorisation by seamlessly fusing deep soulful techno and gritty bass line fuelled house with ethereal otherworldly electro . .. Unpredictable but always exciting, his driving tech-y rhythms, emotive melodies and trippy psychedelic sounds have seen him captivate crowds at many of the worlds leading clubs. MOS, Fabric, The End, Zouk (Singapore), Amnesia (Ibiza), Love-e (Sau Paolo), Fuse (Brussels), Dance Valley (Holland) and Homelands are just a few of the venues he's played, having taken taken his unique sound to parties in over 50 different countries.
So there you have it good people, we look forward to scuffing the floorboards with you again soon!
