Three of DIY dance music’s truly esoteric talents meet at Oval Space on 27th January: L.I.E.S boss Ron Morelli, Sex Tags head honcho DJ Sotofett, and richly talented house music veteran Maurice Fulton.

Now based in Paris, Brooklyn-born Ron Morelli has played a key role in the renaissance of his home city’s house and techno community. Exploding onto the scene in 2010 – then crowned Resident Advisor’s label of the year only 24 months later – Morelli’s L.I.E.S label conquered the world based out of his Long Island apartment, a one-man operation whose singular, grainy, rough’n’tough electronic vision forged the blueprint for the current crop of lo-fi pretenders to the L.I.E.S throne. Six years later, L.I.E.S. is New York’s pre-eminent electronic label, responsible for modern classics from the likes of Legowelt, Delroy Edwards and Terekke; and Morelli, though expatriated from his beloved East Coast city, remains acutely entwined with New York’s burgeoning electronic culture.

He’s joined by Sex Tags founder and deeper-than-deep digger DJ Sotofett, who will be playing a special techno set on the night. Never dull, prosaic or predictable, the Nordic wizard regularly tears the roof off clubs in Europe and beyond, with a record collection that starts at classic house, then stretches endlessly in all directions. Equally capable of rocking a Helsinki Pizza Bar with Finnish jazz records, inspiring near-complete nakedness in frenzied UK crowds, and dropping – and pulling off – a winking 80s pop record amongst exquisite vinyl obscurities, there’s a purity and unpredictability to Sotofett’s marathon sets which make him a scintillating DJing presence. Sotofett is more than just a special DJ, however. His Sex Tags Mania and offshoots are some of dance music’s most prolific labels, and many of the their finest releases come from the man himself, with a sound that infuses house and techno with elements of acid, freeform jazz, balearic and old-skool jungle.

To kick-off 2017 we have not one but two of the foremost tastemakers and labelheads around. Heading both Eglo and MCDE respectively, Alex Nut and Pablo Valentino will be taking us through the most soulful sounds that dance music can offer.

*MCDE meets EGLO at Rhythm Section*

Alex Nut, who needs little introduction is a superb radio host, selector and curator – responsible for putting the likes of Floating Points, funkineven and Fatima into our consciousness. With over 50 releases strong, Eglo Records have become a musical institution with no signs of slowing down with killer recent releases from dego, kaidi, henry wu , k15 and steve spacek. Long story short – Alexander Nut is THE MAN, and it’s almost shameful that we haven’t had him at RS until now!

Pablo Valentino, has been putting fine music to our ears for a long time now, running both MCDE and Faces Records; instigating fine releases from the likes of Rainy City, Laurent Garnier, Harvey Sutherland and of course Motor City Drum Ensemble. Along with being a talented producer himself, Pablo runs Le Sucre, Lyon – a regular get down with many similarites to our own party, noted for its soulful bookings; with Dego, Geology and Patrice Scott amongst others. Pablo is more than well-versed to hold things down in lieu of our ma n BZ

Z Lovecraft & anu will be warming things up whilst Bradley Zero is away down under.

We’re taking over Room 1 at BUSSEY, we’ll be firing up the neon and moving the decks to ground level for that RS feel. Come down early to soak up the vibe and avoid the line. buy adv tickets to queue jump. links below

Frost may be biting hard outside but at Trouble Vision we’ve got the heat turned up to 11 for our first party of 2017. Dixon Avenue Basement Jams – Glasgow’s finest outlet for wild jackin’ party music – come though Corsica Studios for a night of deep-fever body workouts, club warmers and shake-your clothes-off dance numbers.

Top of the bill we welcome DABJ’s label beatnik, Denis Sulta. Denis’ own brand of jams pack undeniable punch. His productions have been pressed into wax by the likes of Numbers and NYC’s Mr. Saturday Night but he has always remained faithful to the ruff ‘n’ ready house and techno doctrine played out on Dixon Ave. Huge diva shake downs and jump-up bass lines are going to be order of the night from Denis. You will be moved!

Dan Monox and Kenny Grieve (AKA The Wasp) started Dixon Avenue Basement Jams with the intention of hunting down all the ‘real rockin’ raw shit from the street for the club’. Born out of Rubadub Records – THE undisputed haven for all things 4/4 and swinging in Glasgow City – DABJ have become seasoned pros in bringing the party to the floor. Expect the rawest cuts of burning house, acid bubblers and underground realness showcased next to choice selections from their mighty label.

Josey Rebelle will be in attendance representing the bold and eclectic club sound of London. Combing dance delight with Fahrenheit, Josey has branded her name on the London underground by bringing her heavyweight selection and expansive knowledge of getting-you-moving to every set she plays out.
Fans of Rebelle’s extended show on Rinse FM know that she is a DJ unafraid of the unexpected – we cant wait to hear what she has in store for us.

A History of UK Pirate Radio with Slimzee

Camden Assembly

On the 5th January we rewind to UK Dance Music’s most dynamic period, the decade of pirate radio. We delve back to the begginings of Rinse FM and where it all started – Slimzee’s yard.

Pirate radio was a time characterised as a melting pot for the creation of what is now known as the London sound:

– jungle
– garage
– grime
– dubstep
– UK funky and beyond.

Cast yourself back to a time when stations were at risk from both the Police and rival stations battling to pledge allegiance to a viciously talented roster of MCs and selectors: Wiley, KANO, Skepta, Chip and many many more using Pirate Radio as an essential battleground for success.

Rinse FM stood as a crucial backbone to the exposure and existence of pirate radio. Functioning as pirate from its birth in 1994, it wasn’t until 2010 that it ran off a license. Who better to soundtrack this shoobs than a key mastermind behind Rinse and it’s pirate beginnings. Ladies and gentleman, enter Slimzee.

It was Slimzee’s house that was the original location for Rinse broadcasting. Join us as we pay homage to a seminal period in UK Bass culture, taking it back to Slimzee’s yard.
