Its been a few months since our last outing in Glasgow when we helped bring the amazing Sepalcure to the Subclub, but Oh My Days is back with two great guests for y'all.
Mickey Pearce, the producer formerly known as Shortstuff is an artist who we have admired for some time. Since his early releases under his Shortstuff alias with Brackles and Geoim, Richard Attley has been creating his unique take on UK Funky/Bass/whatever. His highly percussive, yet strangely rhythmic dance-floor killers have seen releases on labels such as Planet Mu, Ramp, Blunted Robots and Punch Drunk and have consistently been staples of our record bag. His 2010 introduction of his Mickey Pearce alias (Shortstuff vs Mickey Pearce – Coconuts on Ramp) was no exception, with the Ramadanman remix of that song making us moist. Since then his new alter ego is yet to disappoint, remixing Cassie and Wiley to deadly effect. His most recent outing on the essential Swamp 81 imprint has been wreaking havoc up and down the country, with Don't Ask, Don't get coming complete with another Wiley sample. Look out for his forthcoming track Tempted on Ten Thousand Yen.
Squarehead is known to his mother as Oliver Ledger, but we know him as that 18 year old from Sheffield who keeps making all those sick beats. His Keep Moving EP, which came out on Bad Taste Records in February, features 4 tracks of raved up, swinging Garage, each one a certified heater. His productions are all aimed squarely (Ha) at the party and have seen him playing up and down the country on bills alongside the likes of Julio Bashmore, Disclosure and Kingdom. It's safe to say that this boy is going to be doing some big things in the future, so we're privileged to have him for his Scottish debut.
