SWU Xmas Party 19/12/09

171 comments
 


Were back again this year for the annual SWU christmas party, at another obscure yet potentially brilliant venue, The Hole In The Wall, smack bang in the city centre of Exeter ! The venues under new management and they have converted the basement into a new club that boasts around 250 capacity. This promise's to be a great venue for underground music in the future (Logan D's playing at some point soon among many more artists on the cards)

Were taking on the entire building for this one, not just the basement! all 3 floors, and all rooms, everythings being moved out so we can bring in big sound, decor and loads of people to bring the rave in traditional SWU style.

Anyone who made it out last year to Laboca (a Moroccan restaurant !) will know what to expect , we took over the entire building with 4 rooms of sound, and crammed 700 people in, the event sold out and it was a wicked night!

Same deal again this year, 4 rooms of sound, loads of SWU DJs representing at the credit crunching price of just £4 advanced ticket from SWU, £5 from Reform and £6 on the door.

Afghan Headspin 'Clump Tropicana (Ben and Lex Remix)' [Valium]

Afghan Headspin 'Clump Tropicana (Ben and Lex Remix)' [Valium]

Thisisbreaks.com Review



After a summer packed full of huge gigs and pretty tasty tracks, most notably their remix of breaks legends Shut Up & Dance's Cream, Afghan Headspin have been hard at work in the studio and it shows. Released this week on their own label Valium is the cheekily entitled Clump Tropicana (don't ask me why cos' I couldn't find a reference to Wham anywhere). The original is described by AH themselves as anti-genre and you can see why, with a beat structure that shifts between breaks and dubstep, a warbling bassline, accordian interludes and a cheeky little mute trumpet that'll have you giggling on the dancefloor.

On the flip west country veterans Ben & Lex show send down an epic bassline roller that has a real touch of class and still manages to use that accordian sample to good effect. Strong release. (P2 - djphasetwo@live.co.uk)

Freerange DJs 'Your Mind Your Passion' [APEM014] by apemusic

Press Release



We at Ape are very proud to bring you a brand new artist to the fold. We have signed up the mighty 'Freerange Djs' and shit yes are we happy about it too!!

They may be from the wrong side of the border but this Kernow based gaggle of hatstand Djs has been smashing every party they play at for many a year and now they've brought their wonky ways to the production game and man alive have they done good.

Their debut on Ape, 'Your Mind Your Passion', is a massive wonkathon with a wicked lil vocal hook in an old skool stylee that leads you into a HUGE drop and an awesome 'Rico' bass-lined dancefloor slayer....2 minutes in and in the immortal words of Shut Up and Dance...if you aint dancing then you aint got no legs!!

This has been killing it all summer at the festies so now its time for you lucky people to add it to your aural arsenal.

For remix duties we have gone all out for you....

First up we have drafted the superbly reliable, Beatport chart-topping bad bwoys, the Quadrat Beats and on my mothers arse have they pulled out a fat one :) They've given us a stupendously massive remix that has echoes of the Freestylers in their prime! Mahoosif B-lines, spunktastic ravey synths and a wicked party vibe take this tune up to the next level and then throw it off the roof to plummet to its doom in the car park!

Next up on the remix we have managed to get a hold of those London lunatics, The Wrongstars... Jeebus are we good to you.

Taking a different look at things the Wrongstars have stripped it back and twisted the shit out of it and given the beast a wonderfully nasty searing synth line to scare the bloomers off ya nan. Believe me, I'm holding my nans bloomers now... errr... anyway. There is no escape from the relentless Wrongstars rave and they dont break till the end so nor should you!!

BLAP!!! What a package!! Yes yes ya'll!

Get on board people the Freerange posse are here and we've got plenty more lovely stuff from them forthcoming on APE!!

T-Shirt



Buy me form DizzyJamWe have a T-shirt available for this release which can be bought from DizzyJam.

Totally forgot to post up about this but last week the post man delivered to me the Warp20 box set :D :D :D










To be honest I haven't had chance to listen to it all yet.. The Osymyso mix cd is ace and the Chosen cds are full of classic Warp so thats good. I havent listened to the vinyl or the Recreated Cds yet let alone look into the super sexy glossy book. Hopefully I'll be able to grab some free time this weekend to enjoy it all.

Mix Of The Week - James Fox

3 comments


An occasional thing I do on SWU is post up a mix that has been my 'driving to work' music for the week. In the past I've posted up mixes by Remarc, OG, Jeff Mills and I thought I'd start posting them up on the blog as well.

So here is the first of a weekly item I'll be doing.. Mix Of The Week.

This week I've been listening to this sublime deep house mix from MMII artist James Fox.

James Fox

Full of northern promise, this Mancunian is currently on a cultural exchange in London. Previously known as Strategy, he’s trod a steady path through years of graft on the dj circuit that’s led him to a definite personal style. Having enjoyed his dj sets and radio shows it’s a joy to be able to show him off a bit on the label. We're not the only ones to have noticed either, with releases on Myuzyk out now and Take Records soon.

Metro Boy | Brap.fm | 08/08/09 | Download

A show of 2 halfs this week on Brap. The first hour is taken over by Australian artist Child doing a LIVE set...

Child is a mainstay in the Australian scene, and is quickly gaining recognition overseas. His sound, which is a fusion of deep house, detroit, techno and just a touch of psychedelia, has already been endorsed by the likes of Justin Martin, Extrawelt, Carl Cox and more. He has just released an EP 'Japan' on Tribal Vision which you can buy from beatport


The second half is a section of my DJ set taken from This Is Techno. You can download the full set from soundcloud.

Sadly no track listings for the podcast/archive this week

Up this week one of the shows earliest and loyal listeners and an ever growing force in electronic music. Perhaps better known as being one half of festival breakbeat mega raver favourites Ben & Lex; I’m very happy to present: Metroboy.

SHOWCASE
Metroboy aka Ben Ervine is a producer/DJ from the southwest of England, and forms one half of award-winning breakbeat duo Ben and Lex. Metroboy’s music is a crunchy, hard-bleep style of minimal and tech house, with unflinching grooves and uplifting tones sure to lock in any dancefloor. His remix of Benjamin Vial’s “The Bass and the Monkey” was released on Plasma.Digital in Feb 2009. Further remixes for Ape and VIM records are in the pipeline.

Since Sept 2007 MetroBoy has hosted a bi-monthly tech house, minimal and techno show on Brap.FM featuring the latest sounds from Minus, Get Physical and Berlin as well as many other quality modern tech producers. A full archive of the show in podcast format is available on the MetroBoy blog – Well worth exploring for some awesome mixage from tech jazz and deep house to crunchy techno.
