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)
