Introducing the October crew…
Channelling the vibes of uplifting, dusty house together with heavily funk-influenced sounds, young Cardiff musicians and producers – Bodhi, have brought to the table a completely fresh take on dance music that demands considerable attention. Bodhi’s productions reveal a love of Motown, funk, blues and 90s RnB, combined with the exciting climate of sounds pushed forward by artists they admire such as Floating Points, George Fitzgerald, Disclosure and Blawan. Their “feel-good music with grooves” takes an old school house sound and jacks it up with deep strummed funk rhythmed basslines, producing tracks that sync with the wave of house and garage dominant bass music that is inspiring so many fresh UK electronic artists. Bodhi have already hit #1 on Hype Machine with an unofficial remix of ‘Angels’ by The XX, featured in XL8R’s top downloaded tracks of December and recently signed to Sinden’s Grizzly label for their release Culture / Deliquesce. Considering that these young Welshman have only been producing together for a year, their desire to create a “good solid body of music and hopefully add something to the UK dance scene” appears well within reach.
As his name would suggest, Last Magpie picks up, gathers and masterfully combines musical gems from across the board to create and influence his finely tuned house and 2step hybrids. He aims to keep his style open and unspecific to any one genre under his Magpie moniker, drawing from elements of house, techno, dub and garage with a hint of old school jungle. Last Magpie has chalked up a number of well-received releases for Hypercolour and its little sister imprint, Losing Suki. Without fail, each release has pushed both his and the label’s sound forward with an adept skill of crafting something new each time. As a vastly experienced DJ, his style spans across an equally broad spectrum, expertly throwing together highlights from genres far and wide. A mix of house, techno and garage, new and old, keeps the vibes fresh and interesting. Don’t be surprised to find a throw-back of early Chicago House or Detroit Techno seamlessly sandwiched in-between more modern cuts with a distinctive sound, shaped by earlier influences. An open book, The Last Magpie.
The special guest was discovered by Pete Tong in his hometown of Huddersfield when he played at one of Doorly’s Infamous afterparty warehouse events, Pete immediately touted Doorly as his future star and gave him a live Radio 1 Essential Mix from the Club itself. Over the next 5 years Doorly went on to do a series of musically versatile remixes for acts including Kanye West, The Prodigy, Dizzee Rascal and Basement Jaxx, play across the world at all the major festivals and pick up residencies in Ibiza with We Love Space and Ibiza Rocks. Now a UK export, Doorly relocated to LA at the end of 2012 and has been busy and rapidly rising stateside over the winter, creating an array of huge parties ranging from sunshine house and disco gatherings on the rooftops of Austin at SXSW with his UK crew Skream, Toddla T and Jackmaster, to headlining 2000 capacity ‘secret’ warehouse parties in downtown LA. Early 2013 saw the release of nostalgia evoking ‘new school’ piano house track “Rush” on Diplo’s LA based mega label Mad Decent gaining full sweeping support from Radio 1’s first lady Annie Mac and some of the biggest tastemakers in the game. Alongside a fresh arsenal of original tracks released this summer, Doorly was also honoured to be asked to remix Armand Van Helden’s ultimate dance classic ‘You Don’t Know Me’ plus the seminal Steve Silk Hurley record – ‘Jack Your Body’, a track that gained full support from Claude Vonstroke and the dirtybird camp and is now set for a full release on Steve Silk Hurleys S&S records out of Chicago. Besides his solo production work, Doorly has recently released the first track ‘Dissapearer’ via his new collaboration project ‘AVEC’ formed with close friend Shadow Child. AVEC are set to release a host of fun and fresh house music through Southern Fried Records featuring some amazing guest artists. Spacestation are delighted to invite Doorly to London as an extremely special guest.
Southampton based producers, South Royston have a shared interest in music of all genres. Defining their own sound in the house scene from bass driven Deep House to techno, they still like to incorporate many influences from their broad musical.
