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.
I’ve written zillion press releases for the Nu Spirit. I enjoy doing it since it allows me to flaunt all those big-ticket artists we host. But there was one recently which was very hard to write. We were announcing that legendary Afrika Baambaata won’t show up in May as planned.
In defying the laws of tradition, Los Angeles based music producer MONO/POLY (born Charles Dickerson) has managed to outstrip the logics of multi-genre producing. Known for his distinct madness of face melting bass, paired with his dreamy astral soundscapes of glitch-based hip-hop, MONO/POLY has proved himself to be a natural phenomenon. Catch him playing in the Nu Spirit Club this Thursday, May 19, at the Insomnia party with Jimmy Pé and D OneTwo!
Berlín je už dlhé roky mekkou elektronickej hudby, obzvlášť houseu a techna. Presťahovala sa tam obrovská komunita producentov a DJov z celého sveta a takmer každý už dnes ide do Berlína práve kvôli “clubbingu”. V kluboch nie je problém naraziť na medzinárodné DJské stars a hráva tu takmer každý. V Berlíne však fungujú aj mená, ktoré sú tam už od začiatkov scény a jedným z takýchto mien je aj Sebo K, hosť májovej akcie Leporelo.
One of the members of Flying Lotus’s label Brainfeeder is coming to preside over the resident event of current Radio_Head winner Jimmy Pé on Thursday May 19th. He calls himself Mono/Poly.
