Bastard Measure

Next month the Bastard Measure design collective (myself included) will be exhibiting some artwork from our recent Issue 3 newspaper at the Made Up popup shop.
As well as being able to buy a copy of said paper there will also be a whole host of hand made art & craft for sale so come down for a browse, beer & boogie on Thursday June 16th.

Exhibition runs on from June 17th until June 19th so you've gotta be quick!

Heard it somewhere before - Part 4

Paul Mcartney - Let Em In
Released: 23/07/76

Is it me or does the "D the I the D the D the Y" chorus in P. Diddy's track D.I.D.D.Y sound like the percussion & flute section (from about 1:26) in Paul Mcartney's Let Em In?

This month we have the wonderful talent of DJ Matman (UK DMC champ '05/ Droppin' Science), DJ Ch!co (FBBB/ Cirque Du Soir/ Jet Black), plus the usual residents Aluri, Fade In Fade Out & myself Oh-Death.

As always we kick off from 7pm and go on through until 1am. Free entry all night.

Here's a little taste of what we may expect from DJ Matman in his recent Midas Touch Mix. Check out his Mixcloud for more.

Also, as always, Deathwish Disco will be firing things off from 9 in the main room. This month they have Engine Earz Experiment - Live, Drumsound & Bassline Smith (Technique Recordings) plus residents Heavy Knights (B2b Old Skool Breaks Set).

The Light


Jim Sharp is back again with yet another tight mixtape and this little beauty of an edit. This is for everyone who's tried and failed to beatmatch Common's The Light with the originally sampled Open Your Eyes by Bobby Caldwell. It's all about a key change. Thanks Jim!

This Friday 13th, Alruii and myself will be taking the Too Hip To Be Square party to The Albert & Pearl, Islington for a Friday night frolic from 9 until late.

Since we're always doing the early warmup sets at our regular at 93 Feet East we're gonna be flexing our DJ muscle that little bit more and showing you what we can really do when we have the decks to ourselves. Pop by the DJ booth to say hi and pick up a free mix cd or two. Free entry all night!
