With recent news of the End club’s impending closure tugging at the heart strings of club-land, we at Fat! HQ has decided to throw an extra special birthday party to commemorate the occasion. So, before moving on to pastures new, we bring you a Fat! birthday bonanza - featuring a carefully selected slice of the music that defines our party vibe. Get ready for a bottybassline-bashbeat-technoid-raveup of epic proportions!
DUKE DUMONT – Fresh from his last EP ‘Hoy’ out on Switch’s uber-cool Dubsided imprint, Duke is currently receiving praise from the likes of Erol Alkan & Laurent Garnier for his new re-work of the Mystery Jets ‘Two Doors Down’. His usual mixture of Deep House & Techno with a splash of FX trickery is in store...
MICKY SLIM – Electro-Tech maestro & bootlegger extraordinaire Micky Slim takes time out from running tings on his brand new label – Bomb Squad and brings his dirty bounce back to the End. If you get a chance – check out the new remix of Onyx’s ‘Slam’ on his myspace player!
THE ROGUE ELEMENT – Hard at work on his second album, The Rogue Element has wowed the likes of James Lavelle & Audiojack with his recent balls-to-the-wall single ‘Panic Attacks’ and continues his rise to stardom alongside Tom Real as Glitch-House act – Disco Of Doom. But of course, this rock-electro-meister needs no introduction to Fat! fans, being a regular face on the Chew The Fat! line-up.
FOAMO VS HEAVYFEET – Two recent additions to the TFA DJ roster, these young upstarts have been causing quite a stir in the Jackin’ House scene. Foamo’s debut single ‘Moving It Over Here’ has been championed by Radio 1’s Kissy Sell Out throughout 2008, whilst HeavyFeet’s recent remix of ‘The Rubdown’ on PBR reached number 1 on Beatport and stayed there for a month. Although told ‘never to cross the streams’ we decided to ignore all advice and put them head-to-head.
KID BLUE – With remix for Timo Garcia & a Meat Katie collaboration in the pipeline and his US Tour looming, Kid Blue dons his best pair of slacks & graces the decks for Fat! once more…
NO WAY BACK PRESENTS... - In the Lounge for October we have another Bassline bonanza. Joining the No Way residents will be Fat! Records artist – Baobinga touting his ghetto-bass credentials alongside Dubstep new kid – Reso (currently in the studio collaborating with none-other-than Burial). Heading up the Lounge Drums Of Death will be showcasing his own Old Skool / Techno / Grime / Electro take on the bassline sound – keep an ear out for his fantastic re-work of Tricky’s ‘Council Estate’!
