MR MENDEL returns to play Hot Buttered Soul after his first Bristol debut with us two years ago, can't wait to have him back.
Expect a DJ set brimming with uplifting Soulful-edged energy, Tropical cool and Disco excitement from a very talented and gracious friend and DJ.
Holding down his Lumberjacks in Hell / Red Light Radio residency alongside Marcel Vogel, Mendel has been busy playing Worldwide festivals and party's in 2017.
Mendel Ezra is the sort of DJ who collapses time and compresses distance. If you've heard him play around Europe over the last few years, it maybe didn't occur to you that some of the records you heard were made 30 years ago on the other side of the world. In fact, the records he plays could have been made at any point in the last five decades in any corner of the globe. Mendel's skill is bringing it all together into a single, soulful dance floor experience. He's been spreading his message beyond Amsterdam more and more recently, his reputation flourishing thanks to his standout sets, his popular online mixes and his well-received edits. "In general I like simple edits that keep the soul and dynamics of the song intact," he tells us, "but emphasise something different to the original." It's been working nicely. Mendel has given his light touch to music by Fela Kuti, Nina Simone, James Brown and, most memorably, the Brazilian bossa nova group Trio Ternura, with his unreleased version of "A Gira" sitting on a healthy 100,000-plus plays on SoundCloud.
