Padded Cell Live

The Kat is back...and delighted to announce Padded Cell (Live) as Her latest special guest ... Padded Cell (DC Recordings & Mixed Blood) are Richard Sen and Neil Beatnik.

Having won notoriety as Bronx Dog (Heavenly) and Dirty Beatnik (Wall of Sound) respectively, Padded Cell came about in 2002, partly as a response to the conservatism of early millennium dance music, but also to act as a conduit through which they could conduct and realize their most outlandish ideas...

A shared history as club Djs and producers means that even the most mind-bending elements of their sound are conducted through dance floor focused channels; disco breaks and rolling percussion combining with menacing synth work outs, electro sensibilities and live instrumentation to create an unholy brew that tastes of everyone from Ron Hardy and Arthur Russell to Bush Tetras and the Velvet Underground...No surprise that their sound has been described as ‘dark-disco’ and ‘goth-disco-rock’...

Recent output has seen them remixing sections of Lcd Soundsystem's '45.33' to great acclaim as well as a succession of quality 12" cuts, including 'Signal Failure' (as featured in GTA IV) and "Far Beneath London"

Bosco and Craig Moog (Solardisco) round out the lineup to ensure a night definitely not to be missed...

Doors 11-3, £10 Saturday 27th Febuary at The Universal (Sauchiehall Lane) Glasgow.

Melting Pot

Melting Pot in Glasgow celebrates it's 9th birthday in style on the 6th March with the return of two of the clubs favourite guests Dj Cosmo And Ashley Beedle. Showcasing materiel from their new exciting project "Darkstarr". With a sound which has no boundries, this party will see them dropping psychadelic disco and beyond. This is surely going to be their year with parties, productions - including remixes of Ashley's new venture Mavis on !K7, and Salvador Santana, plus a compilation album - DarkStarr Psychedelic Disco-Tech: They Live by the Night on Out Here Recordings - all planned for 2010!

Since moving from New York to London around 2000 Cosmo has continued to build a reputation as a DJ of some note – with the all encompassing New York mindset of DJing with no limits, playing good music, no matter the style or genre, as long as it works on the floor and not being a slave to the beat.

Cosmo is also part of the promotion team that has established the quarterly London Loft parties with David Mancuso – in her days back in New York she was one of a very few people ever to have the privilege to play regularly at The Loft, she was also one of the few guests to play at the seminal Body & Soul nights alongside Joe Claussell, Francois K, and Danny Krivit. Indeed, she in held in such high regard by Francois K that she is one of the few DJs he trusts to play the entire night at his weekly Deep Space residency in New York.

Not content with promoting, DJing and hosting radio shows that are syndicated across the globe, Cosmo also runs her own record label Bitches Brew and has been producing some superb records under the Wild Rumpus alias, which have also featured mixes from Rub n Tug and Prins Thomas.

ith a wide and varied playlist that veers from his soulboy and reggae roots to the disco, jazz funk of the legendary London afternoon club “Crackers”, where he used to bunk off school to get his “real” education, to tribal house and techno.

Ashley’s been part of some rather huge production teams in the form of: Black Science Orchestra, Ballistic Brothers and the massively successful X-Press 2 with Rocky & Diesel. Over the last couple of years he’s branched out on his own for the first time and has released a string of storming disco based 12s on his Out Hear Audio label under the Heavy Disco Revue, plus hooked up with Strut again with his Inspiration Information album alongside Horace Andy in 2009, after his fantastic Grassroots compilation back in the day.

Ashley’s ability to always stay ahead of the pack continues with his futuristic reggae inspired Warbox project (which has included chart smashing remixes for the likes of Lilly Allen), a rock techno inspired project with the Filthy Dukes’ Mark Ralph, called Ralph und Beedle, a blue eyed soul project called Mavis which is to be released on !K7 in Feb 2010 (featuring Lambchop’s Kurt Wagner, Candi Staton, St Etienne’s Sarah Cracknell plus many more) and his new moniker, Space Programme.

Come join them both and residents Andrew Pirie and Simon Cordiner for a special birthday celebration at the Admiral 72 Waterloo St Glasow on Sat 6th March. Not to be missed......
