DJ’s: Cut + Paste Featuring Johnny Frenetic & Kon-tempt (AV8 records)
In 1774 America declared independence from its colonial master, Great Britain. Since then they have done rather well for themselves, so in a tip of the hat we have decided to throw our own Independence Day party.
Starring will be the UK’s hottest mash-up supergroup Cut + Paste who are signed to AV8 record NYC and are currently working with the label's biggest and brightest stars with some big records coming out later in the year.
Kon-tempt and Edinburgh’s own Johnny Frenetic have been building up huge reputations world wide for their production work, sublime mix CD’s and of course their hugely energetic live shows which have already seen them hit Hong Kong this year with gigs all over the globe in the planning. A real Scottish success story, they have between them already played all over the world with parties in Ibiza, Dubai, Paris, Zurich, The Cayman island, Scandinavia, The Canary Islands, London, Corfu and Warsaw. They have dropped by some of Europe's biggest festivals and supported acts as diverse as Roger Sanchez, Hed Kandi, The Cut Up Boys, Snow Patrol, Elbow, G-Unit, Clinton Sparks, Jazzy Jeff and Dexter from the Avalanches.
Live, they use four decks and 2 lap-tops to smash together a genre-splitting mix of house, electro, club classics, dubstep, classic 80’s & 90’s loops, huge urban acapellas & big indie guitar riffs with their own original mash-ups and remixes taking centre stage which have had in excess of 4 million youtube views and tens of thousands of downloads worldwide.
Expect their 4th July show to focus on the finest music ever to come out of the USA.
Clubbing for people who know the difference.
