Glue 

Live Set from Glue at The Cornershop

29.04.12
Breaks/Electro/Techno

I had the honour of playing the closing set at Glue last night. Following an awesome headline set from Mini Da Minx left me with no option but to blow the doors down!

A few friends who couldn’t make it asked me to record the set, so here it is – 45 mins of unadulterated bass music (would have been an hour, but the bouncers were very insistent that I had to finish 15 minutes early, much to the disappointment of the crowd)!

Glue at The Cornershop this Saturday!

From this month’s mailout…

A quick email this month to let you know that Glue is to descend upon The Cornershop in Shoreditch this Saturday. Entry is recession-bustingly FREE all night, so there’s no excuse for not attending!

Headlining is Mini Da Minx, supported by Stylus Rex, Hell Yeah, bump and myself.

You can catch me playing the closing set of the night, from 1am-2am. No-holds-barred dancefloor destruction guaranteed or double your entry fee back!

Finally, don’t forget to check out my promo mix for last month’s glue if you haven’t already.

Glue – Saturday 28th April @ The Cornershop (Shoreditch)

Glue April 2012

After last month’s stellar comeback Glue is once again part of your life. However we are now no longer tied to one venue and like medieval minstrels we will spread our tunes of joy far and wide! For April you will find us in Shoreditch’s Cornershop – a lovely little venue that also has the advantage of being FREE all night so you don’t even have to pay to get your next dose of Glue.

Headlining are Stylus Rex and Mini da Minx. The former has recently launched an album to great acclaim with positive write ups in the specialist press and broadsheets alike. Mini da Minx has been a big part of the London scene for a last few years – both as a promoter and a DJ. Expect both our guests to play Glue’s trademark mix of breaks, electro, house & techno.

Supporting our guests will be our usual trio of home cooked heroes – James Furness, Hell Yeah & bump. Hell Yeah will kick the night off with some funkier party beats before bump takes us on one of his patented techno journeys. James Furness will then finish the night off in his normal classy style with some proggier sounds.

Featuring: Mini da Minx, Stylus Rex, James Furness, Hell Yeah, bump

@ The Cornershop, 123 Shoreditch High Street, London, E1 6JE

8pm-2am, FREE all night!

From this month’s mailout…

A very quick email to let you all know I will be taking a brief respite from my all-consuming day job to play some tunes tonight at Frank’s Night Off.

Glue’s 2nd Birthday this Saturday!

From this month’s mailout…

So, the weekend has landed (well, almost!) and it looks set to be a scorcher… Probably not on the weather front, knowing the good old British summer, but because it is Glue’s 2nd birthday this Saturday!

For this rare occasion they have a number of surprises and treats in store including a line up picked exclusively from Glue regulars and residents, providing you with the opportunity to feast your ears on a delectable smorgasbord of beats without any of that Prima Donna nonsense that headliners are sometimes known for (I’m looking at you Grace Jones)…

bumpHell Yeah
James FurnessLovely Andy

…well ok perhaps one Prima Donna as the lovely people at Glue have given me the honour of headlining their wonderful evening. And to celebrate this special occasion I have been digging in some unusual crates to find something really… quite different… for your listening pleasure tomorrow night. And that’s all I can say on the matter. Catch me 12.30-2.15am tomorrow night at the Horse & Groom to find out more!

As usual entry is free before 10pm, or a mere £4 after 10pm.

Glue – Saturday 23rd July @ Horse & Groom (Shoreditch)

Glue

Incredibly Glue is two years old! Seems like only yesterday we were pacing around the delivery room, anxiously awaiting of the arrival of London’s brightest new club night. Yet here we are, entering the terrible twos and as always ready for some serious partying!

To mark this very special occasion we’ll be putting on a very special night with four of our very favourite DJs, not to mention a few birthday surprises thrown into the mix too.

Playing the peak time slot is regular guest and all round DJ hero, James Furness. He first played for us at our very first We Have Fun way back in 2008 and has been back many times, including several iconic sets at Glue. Expect some real treats for the big birthday party with his set taking in house, electro, breaks and a lot beside.

Ending the party on a high will be Glue’s very favourite Northerner, Lovely Andy. He too has played for us many, many times, first as Fatman 88 with some dark and heavy techno and more recently as Lovely Andy with a slightly happier set. He’s played Glue a couple of times in the last year, each time better than the last, setting a very high standard for himself – we’re pretty sure he’ll better it again this time…

Kicking the celebrations off is a man that is no stranger to Glue – back from his baby enforced hiatus is Hell Yeah! The former resident and co-creator will be once again be gracing the decks at Glue, playing some funkier tunes at the start of the night and no doubt setting the party up perfectly for the chaos that will follow!

Finally, we have our loyal and most trusted resident, bump. He’s played more Glues than anyone and set the musical tone perfectly each time. So once again he’ll be doing his techno thing and taking the Horse & Groom from a nice little pub to mental party zone in 105 minutes!

So don’t miss out on the best birthday party ever!!!

However before the big day itself we wanted to share the party spirit with you so here’s a special birthday mix that Lovely Andy has done to get us all in mood – http://soundcloud.com/love​lyandy/lovely-andy-present​s-glue

And to get a taster of Glue, check out mixes from our nights on Soundcloud – http://soundcloud.com/havi​ng-a-laugh

September Social!

From this month’s mailout…

A short update this month just to let you know that both Shakes and myself will both be returning to support the 2 Bit Thugs at Glue this Saturday in Shoreditch. Expect a frenetic and fun mix of electro, gangster house and anything with a bassline from the ‘Thugs, and of course the usual dancefloor destruction you’ve undoubtedly come to expect from the Pogo DJs!

In other news, it has been an interesting few months since my last email, some highlights including playing an electro swing set for a 1940s themed party filmed for ITV (transmission date TBC), and of course having finally moved in to my new house a few months ago!

On the moving note I have of course been concentrating on sorting out all the important furnishings such as sofas, shelves, and err of course a suitably large PA system for my decks, which has finally freed up my studio monitors for me to set up a proper studio downstairs! Some photos over on my Facebook page if you’re curious…

Of course finally having my studio sorted means that my quest to hone my production is back on and I have been redoubling my efforts to finish my Neon Highwire remix plus working on a new track I have started with Shakes – watch this space!

For Saturday, as ever I have a few guestlist places available which will get you in for free. If you’d like a place either reply to this email or click here to register your interest. For everyone else it’s free before 10pm, or a mere £4 after. You can catch me playing from 10.45-12.30, and Shakes from 2.15-4.00.

Glue – Saturday 18th September @ Horse & Groom (Shoreditch)

Glue

So it’s September, back to school and back to Glue! This month we have a very special lineup as our residents take a break and we invite back some old friends and some very exciting new ones!

Headlining the night are 2 Bit Thugs, a DJ pair we’ve been hoping to get to Glue for a long time and finally they’re here! Playing a frenetic and fun mix of electro, gangster house and anything with a bassline and an attitude we think they’ll fit perfectly with the Glue ethos!

Along with the Thuggish headliners we have James Furness and Shakes, once the pair were partners known as the Pogo DJs but now their ride alone, both on a guest to find the biggest baddest basslines and heaviest party tunes. Expect a collision of electro, breaks and house.

And finally opening the party we have Dr Woo, a newcomer to Glue who’ll be playing a warmup set that will run from chilled techno to full on party starters!

@ Horse & Groom, 28 Curtain Road, London, EC2A 3NZ

Ibiza Rocked!

Having finally recovered from the mayhem that was Ibiza 2009 I can definitely say it was one of my favourite gigs to date. It was also one of my favourite holidays to date, with a few days before/after Space to chill out in the sun with a group of my close friends.

We Love Space poster at Ses Selines

We Love itself was an amazing experience from the moment of arriving in front of Space and feeling the hairs on my neck stand up at the thought of what I was about to do. Being led in through the back doors of Space is always an amazing experience, past the fridges and kitchens along a twisty maze of passages until faced with a row of doors which open and lead out into the cavernous discoteca. From there we had a few hours to soak up the atmosphere before my set at 2am. We caught an excellent set from local legend Alfredo on the Sunset Terrace followed by an awesome set from Tiefschwarz in the Terazza before it was time to head upstairs and catch red box regular Jem Haynes.

As 2am quickly arrived it was time to put any nerves to the back of my mind and take to the decks in the already packed red box. The crowd were brilliant, responding encouragingly to my track selection and constant pogoing around the booth. Despite my set being at the same time as Grace Jones, David Guetta and Paul Woolford the red box remained packed throughout, with a queue of enthusiastic clubbers waiting outside to be let in by the bouncers when space became available.

By 4am I was glad to see the familiar face of Paul Arnold arrive in the booth to relieve me, as I had by this stage become a sweaty, tired mess from 2 hours of jumping around the booth. After finishing my set there was time to sit down and listen to some of Paul’s set before heading downstairs to the Terazza to see one of my personal favourite DJs, James Zabiela, close the night.

All in all an amazing experience, big thanks to Paul Arnold from Chew The Fat! and Mark Broadbent and all from We Love for making it happen, not to mention all of my friends for supporting me both in Ibiza and from back home. Here’s hoping I will get the chance to repeat the experience next year!
