In Deep: Bill Brewster & House of Traps

Bill-and-Traps-FB-banner

Bill Brewster wrote the book on DJing.

Literally.

He traced the origins of dance music for the classic Last Night A DJ Saved My Life, and co-wrote the DJ’s bible How To DJ Properly. He’s known for outstanding House, Disco, Northern Soul and Hip Hop sets at his Low Life parties and elsewhere all around the world.

Firecracker Records boss Lindsay Todd, aka House of Traps, helms his mighty label with style. Known as home to Linkwood and Fudges Fingas, it’s a label with cred that’s been growing for a decade.

In more recent years Lindsay’s garnered much respect for his own productions, and how he lays down thick downbeat grooves that seriously work dancefloors.

His preference is for long sets – the kind he plays in spots like Panorama Bar – and we’ve got a full six hours for him and Bill to really take us on a journey. Warming up is important so get down early!

REBECCA SHEARING

Singing in a boxing ring with Mike Tyson and eight hundred others as her audience, supporting Daniel Powter, and her own acoustic set at Rockwood Music Hall, New York, are just some of Rebecca’s achievements so far.

‘Scotland’s Brightest Young Talent’
Christopher Karghoo (l’Express)

As an accomplished pianist, who recently added the guitar to her portfolio of skills, Rebecca now has almost one hundred thousand subscribers on YouTube and nearly twenty-five million people viewing her work, over six-hundred thousand per month.

Described as a mix between Lana Del Ray, Adele and a female Tom Odell, Rebecca uses social media such as Facebook and Twitter to communicate with her supporters, while taking a keen interest in the views of those who have followed her every career move.

‘A YouTube sensation in her own right’
Kevin Noonan (The Observer)

Shearing only started writing songs at the age of 18, stating ‘she had found something to write about by then’. With many live performances throughout the United Kingdom under her belt, and interviews both in the United Kingdom and abroad, Rebecca is slowly breaking down the barriers that surround many manufactured acts. Hard work and a fiery determination have given Rebecca recognition throughout the industry. It is only now a matter of time before that recognition is developed into even more success.

Born in Ayrshire in the West of Scotland, Rebecca has just gained a First Class Honours Degree in Popular Music at Napier University in Edinburgh.

‘Exciting’, ‘fresh’, ‘dynamic’, ‘a new vibrant musical journey’, are just a few of the descriptions of the work of singer songwriter Rebecca Shearing.

DARKSTAR DJ SET at WITNESS

The Darkstar trio bring the Warp Records experience to our intimate setting. Darkstar have created a style that is both unique and melodic, but doesn’t stray far from their roots, which originated in the London dub and grime scene.

Having started out as production duo, James Young and Aiden Whalley, the addition of songwriter and vocalist Jaymes Buttery brought a more melodic and thought-provoking approach to Darkstar’s music.Their sound is densely atmospheric – combining minimal electro and psychedelic post-punk beats.

For their DJ set they run the gamut across tripped-out house grooves, trilled-out hip-hop and beat-pushing new funk. Fans of Caribou, Fly Lo, Four Tet and A$AP Mob will love it all.

BIXON presents PROSUMER

Taking advantage of the festival fringe late licensing – we have Prosumer coming back to our intimate 100 capacity party.

Anyone that has been to see him play for us / throughout the world in the past knows it makes for a pretty special evening. His devotion to music is audible from track one of the mix to the completion of his very personal selection.

The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is where the ideas that led to Bixon were first nurtured – and the energy, spirit and atmosphere of ‘the greatest show on earth’ plays theme to the curation of this party.

‘Since Achim Brandenburg heartily grabbed the microphone under his Prosumer moniker in 2005 for Frankfurt’s influential label Playhouse, he showed that lasciviousness, a fever for Chicago’s Jack flavour and consciousness of tradition aren’t necessarily bound to a time and a place. It’s rather vision, passion and knowledge that make Prosumer a guardian of house music history and one of the formative artists, DJs and producers of our days.’ – fabriclondon.com

Prost!

Hobbes Music:
NEIL LANDSTRUMM (live) and DJ Hobbes

DJ Hobbes is the scene-expanding DJ, producer and writer who ran the inspirational ‘Trouble’ night as well as related events for many years in Edinburgh. Also responsible for quality live showcase ‘Limbo’, and bass-warp dancefloor thriller ‘Wonky’, he’s made a lot of friends along the way.

With the launch of his Hobbes Music label, he’s seen that commitment repaid with stunning remixes of his tracks and those of upcoming artists by some serious talent: Neil Landstrumm, Craig Smith, iO, Auntie Flo, Optimo and more. What we have here is some of the best new Scottish acts remixed by Scottish DJs with well-earned international reputations.

On the eve of their 6th release (the last of the current series), Neil Landstrumm will play live to help celebrate. Neil is a significant techno and electro artist, whose impact in the 90s was enough that Daft Punk name checked him on ‘Teachers’. His catalogue across a huge range of worldwide techno labels speaks to his productivity and creativity. Still a vital force, we’ve thrilled to have him play live.

BOBBY TANK at COALITION

Bobby Tank is a cosmic producer crafting rainbow inspired synth patterns and melodies that embrace all the best bits of 80s pop, jazz funk and electro-glitch.

He’s a maximalist producer whose melodic inventiveness, zany synths and wild drums will have Rustie fans in rapture.

‘Afterburn’ was released in 2012 where the single received support from Radio 1’s Zane Lowe, XFM and was a top hitter on the iTunes download chart.

His new material including single ‘Learn From You’ came up as Zane Lowe’s Next Hype.

Last year Bobby was invited to remix hits for AlunaGeorge, DJ Fresh, and Niki & The Dove.

Ideal Mexico Presents
RAVIOLI ME AWAY, TUFF LOVE, Hausfrau, Bat Bike

RAVIOLI ME AWAY

(Good Job Records / Upset The Rhythm / London)

Ravioli Me Away are a dangerously ambitious & delusional all-girl jazzy, post-pop-punk/hip-funk outfit with a stylistic theme spanning all past, present & future human cultures and subcultures.

Featuring members of Plug & Spin Spin The Dogs, Ravioli Me Away have played a host of venues, galleries and festivals to date; each show different, fresh and always high-energy. The trio have also recorded & released an EP on Upset the Rhythm since forming last year and have a brand spanking new long player out on Good Job Records in August, as well as a tour only tape on Neen Records, recorded w/ Ben Wallers (The Rebel/Country Teasers) at the helm. WOO!

TUFF LOVE

(Lost Map)

Tuff Love are Julie, Suse and Michael from Glasgow – makers of dazzling, sun-streaked guitar pop. Mesmerising lyrics, heart wrenching vocals, dreamy melodies.

Tuff Love clambered out of the ashes of Motherless Daughters, an all-singing, all-dirge-ing folk duo featuring Suse Bear on bass and Julie Eisenstein on guitar. Fortunately for all concerned, the project never made it beyond the confines of Suse’s flat, and after a short hiatus the pair regrouped with the intention of forming a grunge band. What happened instead has variously been described as funereal surf and filth disco, and the sound has flashes of early Take That on Quaaludes with a Shirley Temple to wash it all down. What happened instead was Tuff Love.

HAUSFRAU

(Unknown Pleasures / Night School Records)

“Smearing the line between artifice and reality, HAUSFRAU is the pop construct of Glasgow based artist Claudia Nova. Themes of darkness and light are mutated into sensual shades by synth projections and Nova’s powerful voice, drawing the listener into a quasi sado-masochistic relationship with the performer-as-oracle.” Michael Kasparis

BAT BIKE

Bat Bike have a healthy disregard for trousers and recording studios, writing gloriously sloppy singalong anthems about Snacks, Love and Christmas. They are always a riot live, channelling the spirit of the Brian Jonestown Massacre, Mo Tucker and Bowling For Soup.

FRIEND WITHIN at WITNESS

With releases on Dirtybird, PETS and the mighty Disclosure’s Method Records, and a wealth of remixes for the cream of modern music talent including everyone from John Legend to MAUSI and Ella Eyre under his burgeoning belt, Friend Within is one producer that’s proved consistently difficult to ignore since bursting onto the scene in early 2013.

Arguably best known throughout 2013 for the monster ‘Renegade Master’ refix released in October on Method that soon soundtracked many an international Summer party, Friend Within has steadily enjoyed a growing wealth of support from all possible angles. From guesting on T.Williams Rinse FM show & Skream & Benga Radio 1 show, repeated radio plays from Annie Mac, Pete Tong, B Traits, Mistajam, DJ Cameo and Monki, Friend Within will place the icing on the cake by delivering his debut BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix to air in early January 2014.

With further support coming from a huge range of publications including RA, XLR8R, Dancing Astronaut and Trap Magazine to name just a few, Friend Within has been living up to his name following an invitation to feature on the ‘Monki & Friends’ Red Bull collaboration project alongside Karma Kid and Yasmin for their track ‘Feeling (So Special).’ Friend Within has successfully carved himself a niche as the go-to-guy for underground party music, licked with that commercial edge: a fact proven by Disclosure inviting him to support them on their biggest ever UK headline shows to date.

There’s no denying 2013 was a great set up year for Friend Within, and with forthcoming releases to come on Hypercolour, plus shows at Warehouse Project / Chibuku / XOYO / We Are Festival, Annie Mac Presents, 2014 is shaping up to be fit to bursting with even more friends for Friend Within.
