10 Issue 81 / 2015 GUESTLIST TweeTer of The monTh: Amy Becker Amen BreAk musiciAn finAlly geTs pAid Richard Spencer compensated for the legendary four bar beat A few months back we brought you news of a crowdfunding campaign, "The Winstons Amen Breakbeat Gesture", began by music fan Martyn Webster. He began it after hearing Richard Spencer, lead singer and saxophonist for The Winstons, creators of the legendary Amen Break (from their track 'Amen Brother'), say that the band were never paid royalties despite the drum break being sampled endlessly. After raising £24,000 this spring, Spencer has finally received the donation. Amen. sTeve dAvis To heAdline Bloc 2016 Yep, the snooker legend is getting behind the decks Bloc continue to honour their favourite genre by filling the bill with techno giants like Jeff Mills, Carl Craig, Omar S, Ben Klock, Nina Kraviz and Trade. But there is one name that stands out above the rest - 6-time world snooker world champ Steve Davis, who, alongside blasting black balls into the right pockets for years, has maintained a passion for blasting out Blackest Ever Black, prog-rock and industrial techno on Phoenix FM in Brentford. simon cowell's ulTimATe dJ Axed The X Factor style competition show for aspiring DJs, where they could win a record contract and slot at a major festival, was supposed to be debuting on Yahoo early next year, but the Internet giant has now cancelled the show due to budget constraints. We're praying another backer doesn't step in because really, who wants to watch something described as the "World Cup of EDM". The DJ talent show has been scrapped before it even started weird And wonderful At only 21 years old, Amy Becker has made a name fore herself as one of the hottest DJs on the scene, mixing everything from bass to grime. As well as her skills on the decks, she's real good on Twitter too "the joy that I jus felt when I thought I finished my bagel but I actually hadn't was low key overwhelming" - Yes to this on so many levels. "fog light bling" - The closest normal people will ever get to 'Hotline Bling'. "can we discuss how good mark ronson looked on xfactor & how the girl from that alien band looks like lee scratch perry" - LOL someone should start a Lee Scratch Perry lookalike competition. "give a shit about Adele's new song I'm not tryna fuck up my lash extensions" - Amy Becker is not one for hype, especially when eyelashes are at risk. "my rider bag has space invaders sweets chocolate a t shirt a water gun & vodka S/O @MyNuLeng how tf am I gonna make this flight to Dam tomo" - This girl knows what the essentials really are. "my 1st experience of southend airport has been pleasant…they though I was el chapo at security and now I've spilt my tea everywhere" - Southend airport busting cartels since 2015. "bare ppl on my train making faces at this baby n chatting to the mum…sorry r u lost this is London we don't merrily converse w strangers" - Glad to see that someone understands the rules of this town.
