DAN BEAUMONT AND NADIA KSAIBA AS RHYTHM CONNECTION:

Their incendiary DJs sets meanwhile see them slipping through disco, house, techno and more are gaining them international acclaim and has seen them shipping off to festivals all over the place this summer. We can't wait to have their tanned faces in the booth supplying the vibes.

The Nottingham based 'techno/garage/wonk' label Wigflex was a major inspiration in the formation of Nixwax and we are extremely proud to have their label boss and all round batty clanger Spam Chop throwing down one of his signature sets in a rare appearance in the big smoke. Lukas has received no end of praise for his "Cuckup EP" on the MiMM label but it's his eclectic DJ sets that have us dribbling where he'll get away with playing tracks every DJ wish they could but never work out how to drop.

Johnny became the most recent addition to the Nixwax family when his 'Trapdoor EP' came out a couple of months ago and he has been attracting a huge amount of interest ever since. His tracks are both unique and varied in a way that producers twice his age would be envious of and he has gained himself a reputation as one of Newcastle's best resident DJs in a very short time. Nixwax have grabbed him for a rare show in London... catch him while you can!

KRIS LE VAY:
Kris is originally from North Wales but has spent the last few years soaking up the rich musical atmosphere of Bristol's Stokes Croft. He was wowing Nixwax with his productions long before the start of the label but amazingly the first time they saw him play live was at this year's Gottwood festival where he tore the roof off, receiving, dare we say, more plaudits that some of the much bigger DJs on the bill. Nixwax fans come back to Kris' EP time and again has been returned to time and again and remains one of the most unique records sitting under the 'House' section in any records shop.

Brixton boy OJ is a self-styled "purveyor of juicy grooves". His release was the very first on Nixwax and set the blueprint for what has followed on the label. They say that "you only get one chance to make a first impression" and OJ left a 12-inch orange impression in the record bags of DJs worldwide.

ALEC FUNCTION / HUNTER GILES / ROB AMBOULE:
The three chancers who decided this whole thing would be a good idea. Spot them behind the decks, on the door or on the floor... with big, fat, stupid grins all over their faces.
Nixwax was set up just 12 months ago by three young friends from Kent. As the story often goes, they knew about loads of great unsigned artists but had no way of getting this music out to the people. As a result some entirely cavalier decision-making with regards to their respective futures (and bank balances) they formed Nixwax as an outlet to foster unknown talent from the burgeoning house and techno scenes. This year has seen them work a variety of interesting jobs, travel up and down the country and have some bloody good parities all in the name of funding the venture and they are thrilled to be releasing their fifth record. To celebrate Nixwax have booked some of their favourite DJs who are guaranteed to make this Birthday celebration a night to remember.
