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).

Revisiting – reggae, dancehall, times past and new

Posted on

I remember days gone by djing for all sorts of events – one of the core areas I used to play was a whole range of reggae from original steppers on to dancehall. A major event for some years being the Garnett Silk commemoration gigs. I have been brought back to those years courtesy at first of Chronixx. Rooting around in his music led me on to a whole range of others – Protoje, Biga Ranx, Popcaan and many more. All of this has the serious flava of old times and I am enjoying …

Friday, 22 November 2013

22:00 until 06:00

That’s right after such a blinding night in September we are happy to announce that were coming back to the one and only FEZ for another cracking night and we have a killer lineup for you with some of the best local and national DJs and Producers around. so get down and fucking have it! X

On the Lineup:

*Audio Beatniks

This Sheffield based Production duo formed less than a year ago and never looked back. From fields to warehouses to Sheffield Center nightlife in a matter of months, these guys have shown nothing but ambition.
Now current residents of one of Sheffield’s biggest and best Bassline & Speed Garage driven nights (Bass Heaven), The Beatniks don’t plan on slowing down any time soon!

*DARKUS

“With over ten years in the game, playing the north and south of the UK, Darkus knows how to bring the noise, Dark by name Dark by nature: welcome to the Darkside.”

*ANN D – https://soundcloud.com/#ann-d-1

“Ann D started Dj-ing in the time honored way, playing a weekly 3 hour show on a pirate in the late 90’s, not because she woke up one morning wanting to be a DJ but because it was the only way to get the sort of show she wanted to listen to. After years of going to blue’s clubs, festivals and dancing her way through many music styles she had a vinyl collection that ranged from Prince Fari, Alpha & Omega, Beefheart, The Velvet Underground to The Orb, A Guy Called Gerald, the dirtiest English & German techno, breaks and DnB – that’s the kinda radio show she wanted to hear. Bizarrely and despite not having decks or being able to mix a cake, after about a year she was booked to play out, at which point she thought I’d better buy some technics and learn how to mix. Since then she has gone on to play all over the UK, Europe & Mexico playing with everyone from Rootsman, Richard Kirk, Aphex Twin, Tayo, The SUF Liberators & The Orb on their tour, she was resident at a night called Headcharge which often made the Mixmag top ten best nights in the UK before the council closed the venue down, she’s guested on numerous Radio shows both here & in Berlin, appeared on Channel 4, produced the soundtrack for a photographer’s book launch, featured in documentaries, written articles for various music mags and is soon to soundtrack a short film. She still continues to play a weekly show, on a legal station now – SCR Radio and thinks she’s lucky to be able to share her tunes.”

Dr Cryptic

Dr Cryptic has been DJing and Producing for around 10 years bringing a fresh style and unique sound to his music. Having played at some of the biggest nights across Sheffield and Leeds he has earned the respect and support from many in the industry.
