Freeze present… The Bedrock Warehouse Party, Sat 9th Feb @ Camp & Furnace


Freeze kick-start what is set to be a memorable year with a barn-stormer of a showcase in the Camp and Furnace on Saturday 9th February. They have John Digweed and his record label Bedrock in two, Diggers playing a five hour set alongside support from local lad and recent bedrock signing Jemmy. Will they both be comparing the length of their hair in the DJ booth?

The second room is manned by the good folk down at Waxxx, with their residents Mr. Paul and Thomas Tuft joined by mUmU vixen Adele Moss repping the Liverpool side of things. Joining them are three stellar guests, the irrepressible disco badman Greg Wilson, a DJ set from the Friendly Fires and loopy producer du jour Mark E. Get your tickets here.

On top of that they’ve also released details of a soiree in the summer. Watch the short vid below for more information on that one…

DISCOTECA POCA… Presents an evening with DUSKY

“Dusky have tapped into something, a universal – an essence that excites DJs and clubbers across the dance divide. Lee Foss included their track ‘Tyto Alba’ on his recent RA podcast; Jamie Jones dropped it at DC10 closing in Ibiza; Paul Woolford and Sasha are rinsing their tracks; bass bods T.Williams, Loefah and Boddika are pushing ‘em; and let’s not forget plays from the Radio 1 bigwigs, like Pete Tong, Toddla T, Rob Da Bank, hell, even Zane Lowe.” – DJ Magazine

Due to Djing near enough every weekend horribly unsociable hours, I don’t go out much in Liverpool. One gaffe I make an exception for is Discoteca Poca. I’ve reviewed their greatness before and there’s always fun to be had when they turn the hold in the Shipping Forecast into a great little rave den. Following on hot on the heels of Dyed Soundorom’s cracker last month, they’ve got Dusky on board this time, the duo that have ditched prog to great effect with some groove heavy assaults. I’ll ‘sadly’ be running wild on Las Ramblas for the Off Sonar festivities, but if you are in Liverpool you know what to do.

Full details can be found here. Peep Dusky’s killer mix for Clash as well.

Mickey Pearce – Don’t Ask, Don’t Get

This is the shit. Heavy percussion, enough murky genre categorisations to satiate anyone purist enough to stick to techno, bass music or harsh electronica, and I bet it sounds immense on a decent system. You can imagine this going nuts everywhere from Berghain to DMZ. Mickey Pearce is on one again (his remix of Wiley and MJ Cole was fire , and while he might have picked his name from one of the worst characters in Only Fools in Horses, he’s picked his beats much better.

Props to Mr Paul and his Facebook posting to bring to my attention

Discoteca Poca review on Data Transmission

“When MVP’s ‘Music’ fills the air with its opining chords and metallic effects it’s all about jacking it off; in the house sense rather than Collymore in a car-park. The crowd, nestled nicely in that delightful capacity balance between atmosphere and comfort, respond with gleeful abandon.”

&Ting Friday 4th November – Miguel Campbell

“The formula is a potent one and pretty much a snapshot of the approach that has served Ibiza over the summer, with dance music moving away from both the trainer-spotter snobbery of the past and the darkness of cold electronics”

The man behind the record of 2011 came to Liverpool recently and I went and reviewed. Hit the quote to go straight to the piece on Data Transmission.
