Redemption events

Posted on Updated on

There is a real chance I could be doing some work with these guys – supplying visuals and more for various of their events, from the Grosvenor on to a bunch of their other events at venues small and large, outdoors for festival like gigs and on from such.

These guys supply entertainment in so many ways from your usual pub and venue quiz nights, karaoke and lip sunc events, to weddings, birthdays and themed parties, on to club nights, festivals and more. Most of the people involved have played all over Europe and the Mediterranean alongsode really big names (no I am not going to give a list).

Cranni – Plot 22 – the adventure, talent developes

Posted on

Down at Plot 22, the venue created by Rite Trax the jourbey developes for Cranni, a musical adventure centres around Nigel Cranswick. Coming soon there will be an ep and then, it is hoped, at least 3 albums. I will be supplying the visuals for the opening event – 7th September, Cubanos, Sheffield.  The whole story, though, is so much more interesting, some of which you can find on the Cranni blog – the english version and the dutch version – see below. That in itself is a little odd – a musical project being pursued in both languages.

Rite trax via Plot 22, the venue and studio space down by the old markets in Sheffield, is helping a whole range of creatives and performers with their art, events, development. Futurhood av and F4mmedia (both me) are there to help as well, providing a range of help and support, products and services.

Sheffield, Rite, Trax, DINA – threads for a new cloth

Posted on

a few old tunes ranging from chillstep through a whole range of gentle drum and bass onwards, an ebook accompanies with text and illustration

There is nothing quite like a city at night with a that night being ahead of you with impending lacings, lashings of entertainment. It is made richer when there is a variety of textures around you – the newly devloped, places in the middle of development, the old, the older still, the newly decorated, moving from quietish to busy and full of one life or another.

I was certainly surprised to be greeted by a statement in the Rite Trax timeline praising me for a statement that I made that night – that it had been the best I had had for some time – I was given a big up for such. This was a night of some surprises, though, for me. The venue – DINA – was an absolute delight. Good and friendly staff, both behind the bar and on the door – having been a doorman and having had events to run and venues to service, I know how useful door staff can be in making a night good. Striking a balance between friendliness and adherence to rules, not being the archetypal growling bouncer, these are the orders of the day. The venue was great – it had real texture to it, upstairs, downstairs and all. On this night there was poetry and art in the front bar area, behind that the main room and an extra dj area upstairs.

Having enjoyed having a chat and a laugh with a whole pile of the usual crew and one or two new faces what capped it all of was Mark Archer running through a raft of old skool classics including what is perhaps my favourite tune of that particular era – Gat Decor, Passion

There is also a vocal version here –

The only thing missing was my hope to hear Jaydee – Plastic Dreams once more.

What we have here is a growing thread of mixed events. Rite Trax is doing something that has been done only marginally before, bringing more than just the club night or the art event to Sheffield. There is more coming …

The Old Markets reviving

Posted on

It is interesting to see how areas of cities develope. The old markets area in the centre of Sheffield is getting a revamp courtesy of ordinary folks who have an interest in music, the arts, performance and small business. I was down at Bal fashions for the Wub Club event the other night and had a great time. The bar there is awesome and the efforts put in by all concerned was truly amazing. Rite Trax are opening up a place just a couple of doors down, Plot something or other, name TBD, where studios will sit beside a general business, meeting and event area. Here you see businesses geographically close helping each other. It is just a shame that the local council do not share the same attitude at times. It seems that they are more interested in the big corporate side of things. So many times we have seen small and enjoyable venues, interesting shops and ventures closed down courtesy of the council’s narrow point of view. But the artists, performers, craftspeople and small businesses of Sheffield still continue to create exciting places, events and products.

Opposite these ventures is the old Market Tavern – now there was a place with character. It may yet get a boost with new owners. Just below that is Frehiwet Habesha, an Eritrean restaurant cum cafe. More is being planned by a whole range of people. This is an area that could become something very special if we give it some support and enjoy what is being offered.

Around the world in 80 raves – Hidden Junction

Posted on

Coming very soon to a particular venue in Sheffield – Funky Town, upstairs in the old West Street Alehouse – is Hidden Junction a weekly thrusady night extravanganza, but not too extravagant, from Rite Trax. This is the outfit with whom I regularly perform. I will undoubtedly be providing visuals for this event as with the others, in addition I will be DJing a regular set – Around the world in 80 raves. This will provide something either in keping with the night or a useful contrast. The difference with these sets will be that they will involve either a different genre or sub-genre of music or a different point of origin.

The opening few sets are likely to include:

  • nujazz
  • nusoul
  • broken beat
  • balkan mashups
  • italo house
  • italo disco
  • future kizomba
  • zouk bass
  • zouk love
  • retro zouk – classics
  • japanese lounge – shibuya kei
  • canadian drum and bass
  • french triphop
  • african deep house

Let me know of any suggestions you have.

The whole Rite Trax experience is something that is growing. It may have a core of banging club nights but it is much more and will grow those extra features over the coming weeks, months and more. It may be useful for those with artworks, hand crafted materials, music and all such to get in touch with them.

RiteTrax More and probably More Still

Posted on

There will always be events that surprise you, catching you off guard in a really pleasant way. It’s the same thing with businesses. Rite Trax is a business, it also puts on events and also looks to be a lot more than that as well. Music and its performance may be the first thing that springs to mind, eyes and ears with them but as you should know your eyes and ears can also be delighted and sometimes surprised by its other core interests – art and poetry. Admittedly the art and poetry are not classic gallery and museum pieces, delicately crafted oils and the like, the poetry is not the stuff of high-class salons, coffee table volumes or any of it consumed with a gentle sherry and cigar. The art, poetry, music is the stuff of ordinary, living and working people of the city and beyond. It also magically properly manages to go beyond a lot of club culture and attracts a real range of ages, from youth to (in my case) ancient and greying. All of this is so good. You will find much of it catalogued by a variety of photographers as well – check the Rite Trax website and facebook page.

RiteTrax CIC :: A platform for underground culture

The average club night has a minimal story, certainly it has a beginning, middle and end, the better events have a particular style of progression fitting that timeline. Art and poetry events tend to be rather more linear and flat, only certain of them have a story that builds. Rite Trax does so much more. Most of their events have a progression that involves a real unfolding of activity and experience with a variety of areas of participation. This can truly be less of a short story or simple monologue, as it were, and far more a mixed or multi genre novel or an interlocking series of episodes all in one.

So – the question is where next for Rite Trax? There will certainly be more events at a range of venues around Sheffield and possibly beyond. The poetry angle and art side of things will be developed, there may be audio books, video, prints and original works of art to be sold and displayed. There is also talk of a record label.

Rite Trax – Trafalgar Warehouse – A Guy Called Gerald

Posted on Updated on

Source: Facebook

Lots of fun was had at the Rite Trax 1st birthday bash. Personally, as Futurhood av, I was providing vj performance alongside Joe from Damp Studios. We projected side by side all night and it was real fun. There were also artists and more providing interesting additions to the whole event. A Guy Called Gerald was the headliner – see below. He is well known for his old skool work as well as his current performance and output – we had a nice chat and a fag later on. Mistabishi was there as well, it was nice to catch up – not seen him in a while but the performance, like Gerald’s, was electric. Great support came from all the rest – Isis Moray, Cryptic, Phatworld and all the rest. Looking forward to more.

It is a vibrantly new thing – Rite Trax – combining a variety of music, presenting club nights alongside art experiences and spoken word poetry. We have all run across each of these things separately, the combination is something really very different. All of it should be supported. Why leave your senses unfulfilled. Most of us love our music and appreciate the visual and the word based forms of expression. With these events and everything presented through the website (see below), you can have all of this together or in part. On top of this when there is music there also tends to be vj performance as well (often from me).
