Diesel (X-Press 2 / Moton)
Chris C-Top (SpaceBass)
We're vibrating with joy at the prospect of our next party at Big Chill Bar which is on Bank Holiday Sunday 30th August
Our uber-special guest is one of the UK's finest DJs over the last 20+ years - that is man is Diesel, one member of the legendary X-Press 2 and co-founder of the prolific Moton Records label.
It's difficult to know where to start when talking about Diesel's career... from beginnings back in 1986 warming up for Gilles Peterson, onto regular spots playing at Terry Farley and Andrew Wetherall's 'Boys Own' parties. The residency at Cream, and the regular spots at Ministry of Sound and venues across the globe. Founding X-Press 2 with Rocky and Ashley Beedle, and then reviving David Byrne's career with their production on the track “Lazy” ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3lJwyQ_2Qg ). What else? Other projects including the Ballistic Brothers, Yellow Sox and DJ edit label Moton Records, co ran with old friend David Jarvis (while we're doing YouTube clips, get your chops round this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rj-X9hvSJtk )
Needless to say, it will be a special session. Don't forget you'll get the usual musical massage from SpaceBass residents Liamski and Chris Ctop.
Details? It runs from 6pm until 1am..... The address is Dray Walk (off Brick Lane), London E1 6QL..... They do cocktails and sunday lunch. It will be sunny, I know this for a fact. And it's better than carnival because you won't get hassle from the police.
We'd love to see you there, and wear something low-cut with tassles if you can. Cheers.
