Forget the Euro’s, the Golden Jubilee Celebrations and the Olympics – March 17th is the date you’ll be needing to note down in your diaries in 2012 as we bring you another edition of our rather spanking nofitstate parties.
Following on from our monster NYD bash we bring you yet more high spirited hi-jinx with a top notch headliner in the form of Motor City Drum Ensemble. Having been raised on a diet of Jazz, Soul & Funk from an early early age Danilo Plessow first started releasing tracks when he was 15, it was, however, when he started producing under the Motor City moniker in 2007 (so called because of his home town of Stuggart’s car production history) that the dance music community really sat up and took note. The ‘Raw Cuts’ series on his own MCDE ploughed a new furrow through the often derivative deep house scene with their fresh sample heavy low slung grooves; three of the singles feature in Juno Records all time top selling single chart – no mean feat tough climate for vinyl sales in recent years.
For an example of the man’s dj talent look no further than 2011′s ‘DJ Kicks’ comp – magically weaving a tapestry of different genres together, from Sun Ra to Robert Hood, to create a brilliantly cohesive soundscape and one of last years most intriguing blends.
Next up on the bill is tINI. Intrinsically linked to Loco Dice’s fantastic Desolat imprint, tINI released her debut album ‘Tessa’ for the label last October and has since fortified her position as one of the rising talentsin dance music with a slew of gigs including a worldwide tour with Marco Carola. tINI’s style is many and varied, from deeper sleek tripped out journeys to energy packed main room rides as we’re really excited to be hosting her at nofitstate.
As ever, our ship’s captain Geddes will be in attendance spinning a blend of techno and house in his own inimitable style. 2012 promises to be a landmark year for the Mulletover man with singles on Poker Flat and his own nofitstate imprint looking towards a potential bonanza dj schedule
We look foward to seeing you down the front!
