NEW RA EVENT http://www.residentadvisor.net/event.aspx?361638
Special luxury guest crew;
we are mightily pleased that rising star dj and producer manok is descending to the underworld to regail us with his unique exotic blend of juke / footwork / cumbia / funky / hip hop / junglism and more. Not only is he a producer and dj of enormously high quality, but also an extremely modest and affable fellow, so please stand, pick up your chest and make some noise for manok!!! If you haven't yet taken time to peep his shit, may i suggest that you do so right now!
only very recently did i first hear the post everything mashup styles of murdurah. When i first heard his new ep, the clouds parted, rays of ultramagnetic radiation seared down from the heavens and blinded my eyes, but with tunes like these, Â¿who needs eyes? A gourmet selection of rinsed, distorted and bastardised amens, hoovers and dub horns that is fundamentally dubstep, but with a distinctly raggamuffin flavour. seriously hot anarko revolutionary business.
terra usual suspects crew;
Â¿what can i say about any shape that hasn't already been said? Basal records field marshalls are peruvian and danish tag team la crema and j'espere who have a mighty morphing power rangers style ability to combine to make the all-powerful lameness krushing behemoth of destruction that is any shape. Bringing together the sitar infused flavours of the east, the sub troubling riddims of croydon with a dose of hypnotic and mesmeric techno, any shape are going places, as soon as they are released from the captivity of our squalid bunker that is.
samrai was once a mere mortal, but has, through years of dedicated training and genetic modification become a huge immortal robot assassin with lazer eyes and a pulse beam katana (which is much like a lightsabre, but for copyright reasons cannot be called such). Samrai has run all of the music ever created through an algorithm in his cyborg cerebrum to select only the most devastating and effective sonic weapons, which he will be deploying with great aplomb. As he would say in a darth vader like (but, again for copyright reasons, not actually the voice of vader) "get involved" (or face imminent destruction)
fitzroy north is the alter ego of super producer tom watt. Whilst tom is a mild mannered type, fitzroy is a deeply suspect deviant who likes to roll around in inflatable rubberised fetish wear whilst an apparently endless harem of female fans drip fine whisky into his depraved mouth. Not someone i'd recommend introducing your teenage daughter to, fitzroy creates and disseminates what should probably be described as post skweee, using an array of digital and analogue devices to bring a truly live, deeply funky and sleazy blend of musical goodness.
an international man of mystery, a connoisseur of contemporary finery, a man with his fingers in so many pies that he must have at least six or seven hands. Slick dixxx, ordained reverend of the church of the subgenius, mastermind of barna's zodiac parties, half of the team behind the flea, writer, broadcaster, designer and most importantly for us dj extrordinaire is coming to strut his stuff. With a record collection that started with hip hop and has come to include just about every genre you've ever heard of and a load that you haven't slick dixxx is a singular cornucopia of great music and well honed dj skills, a veritable and varied fiesta of goodness. Oh my days.
one may be confused into thinking that kls is a single man, but further inspection of his versatility and prolific gigging reveals that he is actually a massive army of clones, each specialising in a different genre of music. Usually this veritable militia of similar looking people are sent all over barna, so that he can insure blanket coverage and complete domination of every venue simultaneously. Tonight however, we have all of them booked for a single gig. Expect bassline to balkan and everything in between.
fenger sway is a time travelling viking from a time and place where people are generally taller and the dominant form of music is garage, but what with this being the future, is now, or will be then called futur garage. Until he has collected enough time crystals or fixed his flux capacitor or done whatever it takes to get him back to his homeland, he has seen fit to wile away the hours in a darkened bunker which makes him feel less homesick playing a mix of contemporary futur music and a few of what are for him vintage tunes, but for the rest of us, will be next year's beatport releases.
dj meat aka carnicero el mejor
our dark horse secret weapon, a man who knows no boundaries or genre limitations, a man with a flair for blending the deeply dark and abrasive with the serenely lush and delicate, the robotic with the tribal. The viking butcher cleaves the carcass that is contemporary bass music with the zeal and love that one would expect of a man with a beard of such zarathustrian proportions. Waiting quietly in the shadows, sharpened tools in hand until the world is ready to appreciate his gifts, el canicero knows that his time will come, and sooner than you think.
being myself, humble narrator. Bestowed with an enormous enthusiasm equalled only by a complete lack of awareness of my own limitations. Hoping that by surrounding myself with enormously talented artists i may by osmosis absorb their genius essence, i'll probably be playing hard skanking ukfunky music as this is what i'm enjoying most at the moment.
