Line-up /Firecracker Recordings
House of Traps & Fudge Fingas (Prime Numbers)
The hottest Jam in town by a vastly vast measure indeed this month as we invite you down to witness two of Edinburgh’s finest DJs, musicians and producers in action behind the decks - Fudge Fingas and House of Traps, aka Gav Sutherland and Lindsay Todd from the world renowned Firecracker Recordings label. It is no understatement to say Firecracker are causing quite a stir amongst the most discerning music lovers the world over.
This label and these artists aren't just hype, they have delivered big time and its just out of luck that they hail from Edinburgh and have spent most of their lives involved in the local scene, most notably at Edinburghs independent music outlet Underground Solu'shn and legendary clubs nights Tribal Funktion, Higher Ground and the still running Ultragroove.
Since the release of their first EP back in 2004 Firecracker have firmly established themselves amongst their peers as one of the most talked about and respected underground labels out there with fans as diverse as Derrick May and Moodymann to Lindstrom and the Idjut Boys . After the sheer buzz created by the first three firecracker EP's, the public demanded a repress after they quickly become collectors' items and thankfully Firecracker delivered.
Now on their fourth release, a remix of "Miles Away" by Steve Hitchell aka Intrusion of Deepchord, which takes on Linkwoods biggest track 'Miles Away' with two utterly sublime and heartwarming renditions poised to soundtrack fuzzy summer moments across the world in the coming months, like the previous Firecracker releases this is housed in screen printed sleeves and hand stamped centre labels pressed onto lush heavyweight vinyl .
As well as their own Firecracker Recordings, Gav is involved in many other productions with artists such as Trus'me and Linkwood , as well as currently playing keys for adorable Edinburgh based band Found, not to mention busying himself with forthcoming solo projects for Prime Numbers. Meanwhile Lindsay is one half of Linkwood Family along with Nick Moore, and has in the past worked with Joseph Malik, as of course has Mr. Fingas...
To put it bluntly, if you know anything about House music then theres a high chance you will know who these boys are. It’s going to be a potent brew of funk, soul, disco and house.
Miss this one at your absolute peril…
