With over two minutes of intro, they take their time digging in, but it's hardly wasted: fluttering violins, channeling the nervous energy of Philip Glass, cushion dramatic string vamps and methodical tympanis that stretch the tension to breaking point. The same simplicity rules the rest of the tune, which is built on a fat, jaunty bassline and a plucked lead ruffling its peacock feathers. Instead of development, Mugwump follow contours in the sound, focusing their energies on judicious filtering and the sneaky rearrangement of the song's principal themes. Enjoy the music.

Having grown up together in the wilds of Fen-land East Anglia they have found their way into a studio built in the old barn of a commune compound deep in the woods and rivers of Northern New York State. From here they have single-handedly written and recorded their first album of songs that, though they are clearly the work of individual vision, can at times remind you of the bands Can and Hawkwind or for that matter Godley and Creme.
Harvey is known for his priceless Black Cock releases and having ushered in the current wave of re-edit hysteria as well as his unique remix and production style that along with his international DJ performances has kept him in a position of cult status amongst disco and dance connoseurs for the past 2 decades.
Bullock is most easily recognized for his role in his Dj partnership Rub n Tug but may also be remembered as the man behind the music of an earlier NY super nova A.R.E. Weapons. Now as well as his work with Harvey he is recording an LP under the handle of Bobbie Marie and producing several other groups all for the amazing "Whatever We Want Records".

The Phenomenal Hand Clap Band are a tight-knit aggregation of musicians and artists from Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. At the center of it is Daniel Collás and Sean Marquand who, after years of searching and contemplation, through live performance and the manipulation of recorded music, have finally succeeded in assembling the personification of their holy vision: a musical juggernaut comprised of Daniel, Sean, and their supremely talented friends Patrick Wood, Nicholas Movshon, Luke O'Malley, Laura Marin, Bing Ji Ling, Pier Pappalardo and Joan Tick.
The collective started when Collás and Marquand, two New York underground club DJs, became restless with the concept of playing other people's music. Both had also been involved in the thriving nightlife scene, and had an almost encyclopedic knowledge of esoteric music ranging from Brazilian soul to vintage psych-rock, so becoming producers seemed to be the next logical step.
After working with a wide range of artists, from veteran soul acts to up-and-coming rock n' rollers, the duo set their sights on The Phenomenal Handclap Band, a collective comprised of various luminaries of the indie rock and underground soul scenes. The resulting self-titled debut (which boasts guest appearances by Aurelio Valle, Carol C, Jaleel Bunton, Bart Davenport, Jon Spencer, and Lady Tigra) is the harmonious culmination of numerous diverse musical backgrounds, as well as a testament to Collás’ and Marquand’s singular musical vision. They have crafted a sound that is equal parts anthemic, dancefloor-oriented and orchestral, borrowing elements from progressive rock, disco, electro, and psychedelia.
Live, The Phenomenal Handclap Band is distilled to an eight-member powerhouse, an eye-popping spectacle that overwhelms the senses. It pulses with a savage rhythm section that provides the ultimate foil for cascading guitars and electrified washes of organ and synthesizers. Their delirious sermonizing whips crowds into a charismatic frenzy. Needless to say, their live shows are more akin to a spiritual church revival than an actual rock show.
The track here is a Prins Thomas rework of their great track "You'll Disappear",which has also seen some stunning mixes by Horse Meat Disco,Ilya Santana and Munk. Enjoy the music. Click On Right Hand Arrow To Download...

Pleasure were one of the greatest groups of the west coast scene of the 70s and a key force in defining the Fantasy Records groove of the time. Pleasure have a sound that’s head and shoulders above most of their contemporaries especially groups on major labels who tried for this sort of sound, but never made it come off that well, usually too smooth or too commercial.
The mighty Wayne Henderson is a key factor in their sound as he produced some of the best tracks with that well-balanced groove he brought to his best work under the At-Home Productions umbrella. The track "Joyous" comes from their third studio album released on Fantasy records in 1977,which see's the band go full tilt,with great grooves and an amazing horn section. The track here is a Dj Harvey edit which stays pretty true to the original format. Enjoy. Click On Right Hand Arrow To Download....

Los Angeles,circa 1999 Simon "Woolfy" James & D-Hastie meet in a special little dive of a bar, called The Scotland Yard ...a pint ?...yeah a pint will do fine... you make music , I make music, let's make music... The two embarked on what's become an eight year adventure. Their first release on Chicago's Guidance Recordings was "Kingsburg" , a track that's appeared on many compilations,including house legend Tony Humphries at Fabric. From there, the full length , Between Here & Now was released,which made serious waves on the electronic music scene and put Projections on the map. Since then the lads have become well known in Los Angeles for their knock down drag 'em out parties. Always dropping a concoction of spaced-out house , dubbed- up disco,funk and some beard rock. These are where the dancefloors last forever.
As well as Dj'ing , Projections keeps busy in many other projects such as the disco-rocker outfit Woolfy on Rong Records (NY) , and the super heavy funk band Orgone on Ubiquity / Nuff Rope Records (CA/UK). Projections has recently released a 12" on Rong ,which received heavy rotation by DFA frontman James Murphy and other bearded warriors of the cosmic scene. There newest album release,on the great laidback Permanent Vacation label called The Astral Projections Of Starlight has recieved great acclaim ,so what's in the future for these guys? A hell of a lot more by the looks of things. Enjoy the music. Click On Right Hand Arrow To Download...

Eric Duncan (Rub N Tug / Still Going / NYC):
Native New Yorker Eric Duncan is one half of the fantastic Rub N Tug duo, and also on DFA as Still Going with partner Liv Spencer of House of House fame. He’s also been curating the excellent Japanese based C.O.M.B.i. re-edit label, and when he’s got the time branching out solo style with some quite stunning pieces of music as Dr Dunks on the ludicrously rare Whatever We Want label. Phew!
Eric’s attitude to DJing? “I’m halfway out there with the party people, drinking and shouting just as everyone else at the party”.
Expect to be entertained!
Mark E (Merc / Jiscomusic):
Melting Pot welcome back man of the moment - Mark E. Renowned for his reworking of disco and boogie classics such as Bobby Womack’s “Baby, I’m scared of you” and Tata Vega’s “Get it up for Love”, on the Jiscomusic label. Mark has gone from strength to strength in 2009 with the launching of his Merc records imprint that have been getting emphatic reviews. Mark is not only “completely on fire at the moment in the studio” (piccadillyrecords.com), but for those who witnessed his performance at Melting Pot’s New Year party, he’s also on fire playing out!
JD Twitch is one of the two DJs who founded “Optimo” and was a resident at the seminal “Pure” night in Edinburgh.
A man who needs no introduction in his home town of Glasgow, Twitch has a history of creating mayhem on the Melting Pot dance floor, so we can expect more of the same.
Having established an excellent reputation on the back of their highly popular Dundee club night, the Autodisco DJs have continued to enhanced their profile over the last few years with some top performances in the Rizla Arena at Rockness, in the Stonebridge Tent at Glastonbury, and have earned themselves a monthly residency in London at The Social along the way.
The distinctive Autodisco sound which fuses Disco, Electro Funk, House and a Balearic anything goes attitude has also led to guest mix slots for BBC Radio 1 as well as heavily downloaded internet mixes on respected sites like Another Night On Earth and Juno Download.
Join residents Andrew Pirie and Simon Cordiner for this great nite on November 7th at The Admiral in Glasgow. Pre-club in the bar from 8pm. Not to be missed!..

At some point in the mid-nineties Steve Yanko began obsessively tinkering with two turntables and a keyboard sampler and hasn't stopped since, spawning a career in dance that continues to grow. Discovering disco early on, and the way it was being cut up into proto-house at the time set the style and sound for his lengthy career in music. Coming out of Toronto's famed millennium-era party boon, Yanko was the motivator for many early-morning noise complaints as the dj/promoter behind some of the city's best warehouse parties including the legendary Leisure loft parties. In 2004, Yanko was commissioned by Chicago's famed Trax Records to re-master many gems from their legendary catalogue as well as mix a compilation titled 'Twilight Trax' (2005). That same year saw Yanko launch his own Truffle Music imprint with a mission to expand on his own growing catalogue of releases and expose the world to the burgeoning new sound coming out of Toronto. Widely accepted by the house-not-house and disco loving community, Truffle staked it's claim in the world of forward-leaning dance music and continues to impress with it's unique roster and focus on quality music.
In addition, Yanko continues to release his own productions on such acclaimed labels as Permanent Vacation, Plant Music, HLM, Prize Records, PSR, and under the aliases The Voices and Strange Brew. He has worked with such industry heavyweights as Antena, Tomas Andersson, Munk, Stretch Armstrong, Jason Hodges, Dubious, Woolfy, and Dicky Trisco. Much more to come as the obsession continues...Enjoy.Click On Right Hand Arrow To Download...

Mark Seven is no stranger to underground music, his involvement goes back to the early 80's his input has included organising and promoting parties like the all night 'Bizzare' one of the original Balearic/early house all nighters (when it was illegal !) as well as many others in the late 80's. A Shoom regular he began dj'ing and now also collects and sells records to those lucky enough to receive his lists. He now resides in Sweden home of all beautiful things including vinyl !
Mark is also co-promoting parties 'The Lodge' and NY Social Club and keeping relation to other parties in Europe, inviting great guests such as Prins Thomas (Feedelity) and Phil Mison (Reverso 68).
His mixes have gained notoriety on websites such as Dj History and San Diego DJ Hugh Herrera's H-Track.com for his eclectic leftfield selection of old and new music innovatively mixed. Mark is one of the few to really capture the understanding of Balearic style of music and how to play it. He's able to mix many genres with keeping respect to the music and the dancefloor in front of him,always making it exciting.
More recently Mark has returned to London to play at Lazermagnetic Bank Holiday parties and at Plastic People alongside Gerry Rooney (Black Cock),also travelling up to Glasgow to play the Melting Pot clubnight. He also has a new vinyl release named "Travelogue" on his greatly named new imprint "Twelve Inches Of Delight". This is the "A Slow Blow" mix.

Since Tim moved Beats in Space over to an FM frequency and began transmitting online via streams and podcasts via Beatsinspace.net, he has attracted a strong international following for the diverse range of artists and styles portrayed on the two-and-a-half hour program.

Chaz Jankel was Ian Dury's writing partner in The Blockheads but went on to become a successful artist in his own right, racking up a sizeable roster of hits including platinum selling singles like "Glad To Know You" and 'Ai No Corrida'. His album "My Occupation" serves as a retrospective overview of the man's career, which spanned some five full-length releases over the course of the 1980s. Jankel to this day remains a part of The Blockheads, but his work as a synthesizer auteur tells another story, representing the career of an artist who ably dipped into the nascent electronic sub-genres of the day, referencing new wave, post disco and electropop whilst never shying away from the weirder corners of electronic music, as captured in the bizarre edits and overdubs littering the otherwise fairly straight-up rhythm track of 'Reve De Chevres'.
If there is a overriding theme to Jankel's career it has something to do with placing emphasis on taking all these various forms and production angles and wrapping them around a central pop superstructure, something Jankel seemed to accomplish throughout his career with an impressive consistency. This is a great edit of his track "Glad To Know You" by Todd Terje staying very close to the original format,but moving the structure slightly and maintaining the groove. This track can also be found on the great Tirk Records compilation "Tirk 02". Enjoy. Click On Right Hand Arrow To Download...
