The Friday Mixtape - Damiano Von Erckert Boiler Room mix July 11 2014, 0 CommentsIts going to be a hot one here in the UK this weekend so get set with the Friday Mixtape & a selection of sleazy, disco-fried house thumpers from Damiano Von Erckert in this Boiler Room, London mix.
Hailing from Germanys Ruhrgebiet district, Damiano von Erckert represents a growing breed of artists not bound by genre specific constraints. Raised near by and now residing in Cologne, his broad interest in a variety of musical spheres started young, growing up under the wing of his father, also a DJ, allowing him to accumulate a varied taste in Soul, Hip Hop, Funk, Afro and Disco, emulating the likes of Willie Hutch, Donny Hathaway, Fela Kuti and Ron Hardy.
A love for the golden era of 70′s, 80′s and 90′s funk, house and soul clearly resonates through his production output and he is quick to credit the likes of Stax, Blue Note, Strictly Rhythm and KDJ as key influences.
His ability to reach back, relish and recreate classic elements, diverting away perhaps from traditional house orientated means, really enhances the authenticity, originality and positivity of his sound that is now starting to gain notoriety amongst his peers.
Check out the Boiler Room (they never disappoint!) and Damiano Von Erckert for more amazing content below.

The Friday Mixtape Tribute - RIP Frankie Knuckles April 04 2014, 0 Comments
Here we proudly present a classic 2013 live DJ set from the Kingdom Nightclub, Texas courtesy of Resident Advisor for your enjoyment...
Few contemporary music figures have influenced their respective fields the way Frankie Knuckles - the man most commonly known as the ‘Godfather of House Music’ - has revolutionized dance music.
Playing a pivotal role in the creation & evolution of House music - ‘disco's revenge’ was the way Frankie Knuckles mischievously described the pioneering style of music that was born in the late 70’s at the famous Warehouse Club in Chicago. It was a raw, machine-driven, four-to-the-floor sound that Knuckles helped shape, that went on to become a huge force in popular music over the next 30 years.
Blasting energy throughout dance clubs worldwide and becoming one of the most sought after re-mixers in music Frankie went on to work with some of the biggest names in music - including Michael Jackson, Chaka Khan, Diana Ross and even found a fan in Barack Obama.
RIP Frankie Knuckles

Southport Weekender The big 50 September 03 2013, 0 Comments
Southport Weekender is the world’s friendliest party.
Every year, over six thousand members of the worldwide Southport family spend three unforgettable days at the UK’s most important black music event. Our passionate Weekender team transform Butlin’s Holiday Resort in Minehead into four arenas hosting a world class line up of artists and DJs covering the whole spectrum of classic and contemporary soulful sounds. Having evolved from its beginnings as a soul music weekender, the 25 year old event now stands as the most musically diverse weekender in the UK festival calendar.
An intimate crowd of dedicated dancers and discerning music lovers will be your companions at the event, featuring four purpose built arenas featuring state of the art production and sound, each covering a different strand of music.
Check out the below video for a taster of SPW 2012:
From the R&B, soul and hip hop of The Funkbase and the main room dance sounds of The Powerhouse, to the soul aficionados Connossieurs’ Corner and the eclectic styles of The Beat Bar, Southport Weekender will treat you to a feast of the world’s leading DJ talent, accompanied by party starting live acts and guest PAs.
Unlike many three day events Southport Weekender provides warm, comfortable accomodation for Friday and Saturday night, in the form of self catering apartments, for each of their attendees. As this is included in the ticket price it’s a strong argument for The Weekender being the best value for money weekend event around.
