Win!

Do you want to be in the above photo, looking down on the masses as you warm up for the likes of Rusko, Caspa, Zinc, Raffertie and Foamo? Well here's your chance, Chew The Fat! are running a competition for you to play a set in the main room at their next event on Friday May 29th. All you have to do is make them a mixtape and get it to them no later than Monday 18th May. The best tape wins a set. Simples.

Here's the info:

1. Record your mix. It can bmore, electro, fidget, house, baile funk, tropical, techno, deep dubstep or maybe a bit of everything. You’ll be playing for an hour so don’t make it any longer than that.

2. Burn it to CD and package it up with a tracklist, your name, DJ name (if different), and e-mail and mobile contact details. Unfortunately we don’t have time to download mixes.

3. Send it to us at Chew the Fat!, Battersea Business Centre, Unit 36, 99-109 Lavender Hill, London, SW11 5QL.

4. Get it to us by Monday May 18th latest. The winner will be announced on Friday 22nd and be playing at The Arches the week after.

2 Many Plastic People

So, last Thursday Riton hosted the first of three parties to celebrate the launch of his new single. Instead of spending all the promo money on proper hype (like adverts, posters, etc.) he's flying over a medley of his closest and most talented friends to play at Plastic People, a tiny 200 people capacity club in the heart of Shoreditch, and charging just a measly £5 to get in.

Last week saw 2manyDjs take to the decks for a stormer of a set. But given that it was only advertised in a mail-out the previous night, although very busy, the queue outside failed to reach more than venue capacity which, left it quite comfortable to dance and not feel the squeeze. This week however will be a different story as rumor has it that French duo Xavier and Gaspard will be the secret guests. Head on over and join the Deadly/ This Is Not London Facebook group to stay in the loop.

Relaunch

Showtime

Well its been almost 4 months since I posted any content here but, it's been a much needed break. Those bloggers amongst my readership will know that blogging is a laborious process at the best of times, and when it is self motivated and non paid, it does come in last as a priority to paying the bills. Hence this past few months have been incredibly busy for me working on projects with clients such as Mix Hell, Crazy P, Lady Sovereign, The Prodigy and Empire Of The Sun to name a few. I plan to update my online portfolio soon so stay tuned to see examples of my efforts.

Alongside the day job, I also took time to redesign the blog and make it a bit more visually attractive to you, the reader. I've also had time to think about the content I post on here so expect new and (dare I say) exciting posts of interest surfacing soon.

In the meantime please download and enjoy a long overdue mixtape complied using (my new favorite boy's toy) Serato. Its an almost 2hour long selection of tracks that have made my setlists over the past few months.
