Thomas Brown and Aaron Turner hail from Middlesborough and are best known as Perfume Advert. They made a big impact with their first ever release, ‘Tulpa,’ an album which married ambient textures and downtempo house beats with clunky grooves that make you want to move.
It seems like yesterday, but it has been 10 years since I first played at the Nu Spirit Bar on Medená – the street of my childhood. I visited the bar a few times back when it was called Budháč, but I never thought that it would become my club home.
Jimmy Pé: Myslel som si, že na dlhší čas sa usadím pri bassových bangroch, ale predsa mám v sebe aj city
Ten, ktorého tracky hráva Gaslamp Killer, DJ Craze aj Flying Lotus a o remixy sa mu postaral aj Slick Shoota či Big Dope P. Juraj aka Jimmy Pé patrí medzi naše najvýznamnejšie elektronické exporty a tento rok jeho prácu ocenili aj významným hudobným ocenením Radio_Head Award. Na vavrínoch však nezaspal, momentálne obieha všetky významné letné festivaly v širokom okolí a už túto jeseň môžeme očakávať nové EP. Najbližšie ho môžete počuť u nás hrať už 19. augusta na party TLAK spolu s austrálskym producentom Basenjim.
Last year I attended Grape, the youngest of Slovakia’s bigger festivals, for the first time and felt I was sticking out like a sore thumb among the younger generations. Nice event, but not for an aging clubber, I thought to myself. And wouldn’t you know it, last month Ďuro Podmanický asked me to open this year’s Grape with my DJ set.
I am one the few people, who aren’t that excited about summer. Its beginning means the end of the club season and the scene trades underground clubs for festivals and terraces. That’s the way the world turns and we can’t change anything about it.
Two DJ crews celebrated their anniversaries this spring: Subclub hosted twenty years of Drumatique and Leporelo, five years younger, celebrated with us at Nu Spirit Club. The founders of the Slovak club scene are almost into their forties, most of them have children, mortgages and a couple of business suits in their wardrobes. Still, it doesn’t stop them from enjoying a party and playing with the same energy as they did ten years ago.
Scott Moncrieff aka Thatmanmonkz’ is a Sheffield based DJ, Recording Artist, and Producer, who has played alongside Carl Craig, Grandmaster Flash, Recloose, and Phil Asher, to name a few. Flat-sharing with producer Ross Orton (Arctic Monkeys, M.I.A) led to a crash course in studio techniques, inspiring him to join forces with Toddla T (Radio 1) and form Small Arms Fiya. The opportunity to catch his unique hip-hop, soul, disco, and afrobeat flavoured take on house music is not to be missed! Catch him playing this Saturday, June 4th, with Popular DJs crew in the club at the last Popular Night party this season.

During the summer we decided to give you a little break from parties, where there is no tomorrow. Luckily for you the revent TLAK retains its regular appearance and that means only thing. Nu Spirit is the only club in Bratislava where the resident party maker is Yanko Král.« less
