30 HOUSE / TECHNO Creche | Bank Holiday Special 3rd June Issue 39 / 2012 Having recently signed to Ralph Lawson's mighty 2020Vision – this guy is one of the most hotly tipped artists around right now. GUESTLIST RECOMMENDS HUXLEY For those who want to rave all day and all night, the "Mid Summer 2 Part Outdoor and Indoor" bank holiday rave is for you. IN THE FIRST week of June, Cozzy D and Alexis Raphael bring you Crèche, 'A Sunday party with a forward thinking eclectic music policy ethos'. Marc "MK" Kinchen headlines the show, a producer and DJ with a wealth of experience who, in his career, has to. Fellow American and Hot Creations la- bel owner, Lee Foss, will also be stepping up to the decks. A DJ who has made a huge impact on the underground house and techno scene over the last few years, he has been described as "one of the most talented new forces in modern dance music today". Together with partner Jaime Jones, the duo is respon- sible for a family of like-minded producers who are taking house music to the next level. Part of that family is none other than Danny Daze. A year on from the huge release of "Your Ev- erything" on Hot Creations, Danny can be caught at Crèche this coming bank holiday. The outdoor party starts Sunday midday until 10:30pm. Part two takes the party inside and con- tinues until 4am on the Monday. For the best in forward thinking house and techno this is your gonna write home about! Huxley, born Michael Dodman, is a name that has quickly risen to the upper echelons of the generally overpopulated house scene in the last couple of years. Mixing the flavours of UK and US Garage, House and early rave music into a pastiche of upfront and energetic dance music, Huxley has already created quite a reputation for himself as a premier producer. One of the UK's finest taste-making labels of the minute, Hypercolour, which has championed the in-vogue sounds of Maya Jane Coles, jozif and Kevin McPhee, is the latest to pick up on Huxley's talent, releasing track Let You Go back in February, with a militant remix from Eats Everything on the flip. Let You Go beautifully epitomises Huxley's sound, set to a 4x4 house beat but with the manipulation of a looped vocal sample that automatically harks back to the champagne bubbly era of UK Garage in the late '90s. Having recently co-formed his own label with Jimmy Posters – Saints & Sonnets – 2012 is set to be another huge year for Huxley as he delves into the world of A&R while looking to stay at the top of his production game. There's plenty more to come from this invigorating new virtuoso! TJ Kong & Modular K TOUR SCHEDULE : JULIO BASHMORE 11th May @ Southport Weekender, Minehead 12th May @ Digital, Brighton 1st June @ Stealth, Nottingham 2nd June @ Field Day, London The veteran-rookie pairing is a lucrative match for Poker Flat. Under his early moniker max 404, TJ Kong was not only one of the first to champion the sounds of techno in Holland during the early nineties but also became one of the origi- nal producers attributed with establishing the Eindhoven style of the now world-famous genre. On the other hand, Modular K is relatively unheard of, his only previous release being a collaboration with TJ Kong on Steve Bug's Poker Flat Recordings in 2011. An interesting pairing of vet- eran and rookie then, but one that has just delivered an in- credibly mature and emotive album of deep house, dub techno and ambience in their new long-player Flat, Dream Cargoes. Blend- ing warm, soothing chords and a persistently comfort- ing bassline with the analog sounds of the cosmos in title track Dream Cargoes provides a thoroughly therapeutic ex- perience that is repeated in various forms throughout the album. The record is on the whole a blissfully melodic and compellingly laidback collec- tion of house tracks that have reignited the reputation of Steve Bug's classic label with this exciting new collaboration. for Poker 10th June @ Parklife, Manchester 15th June @ Golden Down Festival, Winchester 16th June @ Sonar, Barcelona 24th June @ Space, Ibiza 30th June @ Hideout, Pag Bristol born Julio Bashmore has hit the music world in a big way in the past few years. People have struggled to categorise Julio's music into a specific genre, as his music is just that far ahead of many of his peers. With releases on the highly influential Dirtybird, PMR and Futureboogie labels, tunes such as 'Battle For Middle You' and 'Ensnare' have left a huge stamp in the world of deep house. Now as a guest on BBC Radio 1's 'In New DJ's We Trust' Julio Bashmore is guaranteed to play a set to remember if you get the chance to see him DJ.
