Another year older, that makes us 11 - and somehow still at it so definitely cause for a little celebration and to double the fun this one in advance of our first trip to Snowbombing!
We'll be throwing a party in the Schlussel this year with some of our faces as well so make sure you check the link :
Back to Bristol though......
We've invited some of our oldest pals along to help us - they also happen to be some of our favourite DJ's - you've seen them before but they really know how to do it well so fingers crossed you'll be pleased to see them again:
Crazy P have had a sterling 2012, their LP When We On has been around and back again, with a selection of remixes and DJ gigs that have taken them to a whole new audience and earned them plaudits worlwide. Their recent Heartbreaker single package is still riding high in the charts and we can't wait to have them back with us.
Maxxi Soundsystem - 2012 has been Sam's breakthrough year - it's seen him go centre stage with a string of killer releases on Wolf Music, Ellum Audio, Hypercolour, Nurvous and of course with us. His recent release on close friends of ours Hypercolour imprint has literally smashed it all over and has made him a bit of a household name amongst today's house kids - he has been killing at with his sets too - you just wait and see...
Peak - Resident DJ at our favourite club Salon De Wilde Renate in Berlin and new friend of Futureboogie. If you've had the pleasure of visiting this absolute gem of a club you will know just what a treasure it is, a labyrinth of rooms that feels like as much of an art installation as somewhere to dance, Peak holds it down there and books the DJ's who get to play there - if you've seen the line ups you'll know he knows his onions as well - we got play with him this year and spent the whole set asking what the tunes were so we thought it would be a great idea to bring him over, we think he'll fit right in.
Christophe & Lukas - you know the score with these two - local heroes with tunes for days - plus their upcoming releases on the label really are something to check, they could be rather big for the pair!!
Dirtytalk DJ's - consistently booking quality, interesting and somewhat daring artists to our fine city, Dirtytalk have been keeping things ticking over for time and we thought it was about time we got them to come and join us for the night. Their recent party at The Motorcycle Showroom was a greta example of what parties should be like - hopefully they'll bring a little of that along tonight!
Last year's Birthday sold out well in advance and Exchange has a limited capacity so if you want to be in then get your tickets in advance - hope to see you all on the dance floor soon
