Jazzbo – Lego Mix


Mixnot Jazzbo proves the paradox in the title he gains from his part in six piece DJ troupe CMWMSMDM by serving up this selection of erstwhile funk to promote his new party Lego in Manchester, which launches next Saturday night (the 22nd). Head over here for full details of the event and hit the skip below to get in on the rave.

T.E.E.D. – Essential Mix (2012-08-18)

TEED’s brand of infectious pop flavoured electro house has been a bit of a festival favourite in 2012, but perhaps the most eye popping thing we’ve seen from them recently is the WHP he’s curated, with Derrick Carter, Todd Terje and an abundance of chunky funk loving house and disco heads.

That musical template is evident here on this essential mix, fleeting between the likes of The Tom Tom Club, Eats Everything, Scuba, Dusky and i:Cube. Almost as much fun as wearing his headgear must be.

WHP Announce line-ups tomorrow

Two weeks ago the ball started rolling for the WHP with the monstrous opening weekend announcements. They fill in the gaps tomorrow, with this video whetting the appetites.

WHP – WTF!

I’ll be honest, I don’t normally subscribe the the open mouthed reactions line-ups get in clubland any more. Call me too long in the tooth, jaded, or just a miserable bellend, but to be honest they never really get me frothing at the mouth any more. The Warehouse Project just changed that.

Their opening weekend is beyond obscene. Friday kicks things off with a Rinse showcase which packs the likes of Katy B , Skream , Diplo, Zinc, Roska and Plastician into a bass music feast, but Saturday is just ridiculous for House and techno fans. Nicolas jaar playing live, Maya Jane Coles back to back with Heidi, Maceo Plex, Four Tet Dj Set, Seth troxler, Julio Bashmore, Bicep and fuckloads more in a ten hour assault on the senses.

Whatever your musical persuasuion, that weekend is HUGE. Beggars belief what the rest of the programme will include.

Scuba – NE1BUTU (Official Music Video)

An absolutely amazing video from Scuba which is pure feel-good 90s vibes for a track which is pure feel-good 90s vibes. If you don’t like this you can, quite frankly, fuck off.

Residents Rule – Ian Blevins

“If I had to pick one that changed how I looked at Djing and playing music it would be probably Theo Parrish one hazy morning at the Southport Weekender playing mid morning til close. Unbelievable music and fantastic programming. That for me is the most important part of playing records.”

My day job involves working with the delightful We Love… Space and part of that involves sourcing blog content. We’ve recently been doing a mixture of residents rule and Friends and Family posts, focusing on the unsung heroes of We Love (the regular residents) and the family that has been a part of everything they’ve done. North East jock Blevins was covered on this one; click the quote to see it in full glory.

And the announcements are due soon for their summer start. The first wave of artist are insane!

Warehouse Project announce Easter Line-up

Although they haven’t slotted in details of where it is actually going to be just yet (that’s saved for later on in the year) the Warehouse Project can announce it’s line-up. Loco Dice and Jamie Jones top the bill, the latter fresh from quashing rumours of his involvement with the end of the world as we know it/destruction of every small town DJ who deserves better’s career/DJ comp that won’t affect dance music very much (delete as appropriate on account of your moral outrage at Simon Cowell’s latest venture). Joining them is a roster that, while without boasting any full on mouth watering names, does showcase an obscene amount of talent. Carl Craig, Maya Jane Coles, Eats Everything, Scuba and bloody loads more. It’ll unquestionably be a great night, and probably sold out before we even hit the middle of February.
