Richard is out on the town this weekend, and this Thursday he’s playing for our good friends at The Book Club, alongside Leo Zero and Guilty Pleasures‘ Sean Rowley. Disco and party tunes at their best. See the event page here.
Fetish Circus Life Drawing from Tuesday 19 October
We like birthdays. So, it seems, does The Book Club. They’ve gone one step further and are having ‘birthweek’ events all this week. We’re doing a double-header; Saturday night for Mumdance vs Hold Still (Tim Filthy Duke) and resident DJs for a 3 record soundclash downstairs, which gets dark and evil compared to the relative relaxation of the ping pong and cocktails above ground, then on Sunday music production workshops with Toby Tobias and Om Unit.
There was so much that we quite fancied this week we couldn’t fit it all into a Woody’s Roundup: Events
Tonight Thursday 21st October: Come Get Felt Up. Craft materials are given out for a creative competition based on the Mexican Day of the Dead. Prizes, cake, DJs and dead celebs.
Friday 22 October: We Can Talk Goes Kitsch. Rum, Rockabilly and Surf Noir with The Bikini Beach Band and resident DJs.
Saturday 23 October: Birthweek Brawl soundclash with Mumdance.
Sunday 24 October: Beats Sunday Roast. Music production sessions.
Leftside Wobble seems to be something of an online phenomenon, releasing disco edits mainly for free (although also releasing on Disco Deviance, AutoDiscoteque and Kojak Giant Sounds), earning himself 100,000 downloads and being followed by everyone on Soundcloud. He’s actually been playing for 20 years as Jonathan Moore, including a stint at Paul Oakenfold’s legendary Project Club at Ziggy’s in South London, so I’d say he was in a pretty good position to provide a commentary on Acid House for us.
The title of this mixtape is Acid Soul, and is described by the man himself as “music that’s deep and raw yet still oozes funk and soul.” Capturing the spirit of Chicago House and mixing it with his own edits and more contemporary takes from the likes of Hard Ton and Hercules and Love Affair. Very nice indeed.
