This Saturday don't miss this rare chance to witness a rare show by 3 of the planet's most advanced turntablists! Support comes from myself & my brother Dj Daredevil, as well as an exclusive showcase performance by UK turntablist duo Grandeurs of Delusion performing tracks from their all-scratched LP 'Night Of The Flavigator'.
D-Styles, DJ Excess and Toadstyle, both solo and in their legendary collaborations between themselves and with others as Ned Hoddings, Gunkhole and Beatjunkies have been shaking up the underground turntablist scene. Emphasising musical composition and style over highly technical yet repetitive scratching, their incredible innovations and dazzling performances, have redefined the turntable from being a record player, to a musical instrument. Refusing to adhere to musical boundaries and blurring the lines between straight sampled and scratched, there lives manage to join the dots between free jazz, funk and hiphop with the low-end developments that resonate with the UK’s bass music scene.
Saturday December 3rd, 7.30pm-10.30pm at Barfly, Camden

London's hip hop history clubnight Classic Material have got me back in to play at their 1999 event this saturday, after booking me a few months back to spin '95 hip hop. I had a great time at the last one, and even made a couple of mixtapes based on my set (check the first volume here, part 2 is out VERY soon!) I've already dug out a tonne of records for '99, there was a lot of strong releases back then, here's a few of them:
