Show and Party News

Tonight's show features special guests Sam, James and George of the Priory, who will be coming in to chat about the state of clubbing play in Cambridge and to talk about their gig tonight at The Junction, as well as occupying the 209 Radio decks for the final hour. I'll also be giving away a couple of copies of the excellent Steve Bug Fabric cd and playing some peerless sounds. Keep it locked.

That is, of course, unless I don't have a show. At the moment, with less than forty eight hours to go, I don't have a Duty Manager to look after the building while I'm in the studio. No DM, no show.

Here are a couple of worthy nights out for those of you planning to get messy in the capital.

Go!Zilla and its bi-monthly home of Cargo are the ideal modern day marriage, helping to achieve Go!Zilla’s pursuit to bring together the most intriguing and latest acts from across genres through the fundamental live angle. Cargo’s acoustics combined with dancefloor space ensures the Go!Zilla concept continues to astound crowds and those involved.

November brings Future Beat Investigators, who have made homes at Sonar Kollectiv and Raw Fusion labels within their approaching two-year production partnership. Their sound takes in varying influences to form the perfect balance of old school Detroit influences in a modern house context. In their short time together nearly all tracks have been snapped up for release and their music is causing ripples for Jazzanova to Richie Hawtin to Giles Peterson. This date is their debut live UK performance and one that undoubtedly will exhibit their skills to the full potential.

Lesser Panda are all about energy and drama. Their sets give the crowd the sense of a classic dance record with all the urgency and vigor of live rock. The memorable and elating ‘Happy Birthday’ has been causing hype for the masses with support from John Kennedy on XFM and DFA mixmaster Tim Sweeney from Beats In Space radio.

Phil Mison, former resident of CafĂ© Del Mar, Ibiza and part of the Reverso 68 outfit with Pete Herbert on Eskimo will be offering his freestyle skills on the decks showcasing everything from Balearic soul to cosmic disco taking in some rock, jazz and funk along the way - perfectly in keeping with Go!Zilla’s eclectic musical policy. He will perform alongside Diesel, famed as one third of production outfit X-Press 2 and now as part of ‘Yellow Sox’ with a hot new single ‘Zig Zag’ on the dependable Freerange label.

Our resident James Priestley has had a busy year delivering his first mix CD for secretsundaze, debut production ep for Simple with ‘Chariots’ and co-ordinating and expanding the Go!Zilla concept and dynamic as well as secretsundaze events over the Summer. The Winter months see him take over dancefloors in Milan, Frankfurt at Robert Johnson and London at Fabric. So come take on the beats, sample the unknown and extend your tastes at Go!Zilla in another episode of pioneering, quality dance-based action.

After the astounding success of October Halloween party, mulletover would like to thank anyone that came along and made it so special. The next party is another big event with two rooms full to the brim with talent on Saturday November 24th in, as always, a secret location.

Room 1 welcomes two record label head honchos, Crosstown Rebels’ Damian Lazarus alongside Matthias Tanzmann, the mastermind behind the Moon Harbour label. Lazarus is London-born but has become a global success on the scene in the past few years taking in residencies at Circo Loco, Ibiza and his own infamous Stink parties at the T Bar in London. Matthias Tanzmann has flirted with house and techno through the offerings on Moon Harbour and both labels have proved their ambition and status in releasing many of the influential and lasting records of the scene in their half decade of existence.

Our resident Geddes sees the release of his debut ep, Trial & Error on Tsuba records this month and completes the main room alongside Dan Foat, a familiar face behind the counter at Phonica records and also reviewer, A&R consultant and producer.

Our theme this month is inspired by Tayo’s Tracksuit party in Room 2, an excuse to pull out some moves in 80s style. Tayo has ridden the waves between house, techno and breaks for years, a main player on the scene he knows how to put the energy into a party. His long-term partner in crime, Frank Tope will be gracing the decks alongside him as well as Skull Juice, new talent that has taken the East London scene by storm gaining huge support from Erol Alkan and MSTRKRFT amongst others.

Hannah Holland - familiar for her residency at Trailer Trash and regular sets at Bugged Out - and Sick Rick, both lovers of churning eclectic sets add their touch to the Tracksuit fiesta, ensuring this party keeps everyone’s trainers squeaking on the dancefloor all night long.

That was bloody slack of me. I just pasted the press releases. Beats paraphrasing
