CHRIMBO Q & A feat. Flash Atkins, Ralph Myerz, Mat Playford, DATG, Proviant Audio & Kahuun for Paper Recordings

Q: What were your Top three tracks of 2010?
FA: Isoul8 & Mark De Clive – Stop Bajon / Lonesome Echo Production – Spirit of Drums / Flash Atkins – Make Your Move.
RM : Ciscoe – Elevators / Black Room – XTC / Radioslave – I Don’t Need A Cure For This (Kenny Larkin Remix)
MP: Kosmischer – Ruckenwind / Lucien N Luciano – Behind My Soul
Yard Dawg – Mat Playford & Tim Deluxe
PA: I’m all stuck in the seventies, so it’s hard to say… Of course, some lovely music has been coming out of 2010 as well. The Samps’ self titled debut on Mexican Summer has been running a lot on my iPod, so I have to mention the tracks “Peppergood” and “Yellow Jacket”, which is pretty rude, sample-based disco/R&B dopeness. Erykah Badu’s album New Amerykah Part 2 has been one of my favorites this year as well. Tracks “Umm Hmm” produced by Madlib and “Love” produced by J Dilla in his late years.
K: Soulphiction – Deranged / Stac – Tip (Royce Wood Jnr Remix) / Seiji vs. Bembe Segue – Get it Together
DATG : All this time – Proviant Audio / Made for each other – Junkie XL / Something Good Can Work (Twelves remix) – Two door cinema club

Q: What are your plans for 2011?
FA: A Day In The Life film, mucho musica and an album dropping in the Autumn. Also getting very pissed daily, scabbing free drugs and trying to live in a house rather that a campervan, this winter’s been harsh!
RM: Finishing and releasing three albums! “Super Sonic Pulse” with guests like George Clinton and Snoop Dogg / “Outrun (Music4LateNightDrivez)” for night time experiences. and producing the new R.E.C. album “DiscoTech” with Eddie Da Bass and Carina Deejay. Then moving to California and make a lot of new music while drinking wine.
MP: Obsessive focus.
PA: Release my debut album on Paper!!!! Do a lot of remixes. produce a lot, arrange my tracks for the Royal Norwegian Navy Big Band (29 horns!) and do some amazing shows – including the by:Larm Festival in February…..and last but not least graduate from High School!!
K: Get my finger out and try to complete some of the 219 half-finished projects. There should at least be enough for my first ever album
DATG : Finally learn the bloody trumpet, get some more music released, get freaking married.

Q: What was your best Night-Time experience of 2010?
FA: It was in Amsterdam before I got mugged but that’s what happens when you go on the specialist unlicensed sex market.
RM: Watching the sunset at the beautiful Utkantfestival with my fiancée, and afterwards playing disco with Ciscoe all night long.
MP: Touring with We Love.
PA: Must be some of the summer festivals. All were super great but the best was probably the Slottsfjell Festival were I did a DJ-set along with bass, percussions and some horns in front on over 3000 funky people. My bassist claims he french-kissed about 6 girls in the audience during the show. After the show he stated “Mathias, my life started right now…”
K: All of the 8 HiFi Terapi nights at Cafe Opera in Bergen.
DATG : I’m going to hedge my bets and say it will take place on 18th Dec – Lindstrom, Tensnake, Crazy P, Ralph Lawson = Yes.

Q: Your worst Night-Time experience?
FA: Getting back to blighty after said incident.
RM: I’m not really into bad night- time experiences. I always keep it 100% good and hang out with the good people.
MP: Cant think of any bad vibes man.
PA: Nothing I would want the world to know, I guess. Often synonymous with too excessive consumption of liquids containing alcohol.
K: Drink expensive wine with Prime Minister Flash Atkins and solve all the problems together.
DATG : Hm, so few nights out these days, I make sure they’re all good!

Q: If you were leader of the world, what would you do next?
FA: Make all those lazy students get a proper job rather than bloody moaning all the time.
RM: 1. Hire Johan Galtung (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johan_Galtung) as the chief of all the technical economical political stuff.
2. Then make sure Final (www.Final.no ) and Kinee (Kinee.no) get listened to a lot.
3. After all this hard work and tough decisions make January the annual month of chilling out and drinking wine.
4. Make a lot of money on Aspirin in February.
5. Spend that money on buying everybody a turntable and a stack of vinyl with music so beautiful that people would want to listen to it at least for an hour a day. An album on vinyl a day, keeps the doctor away.
6. Spend all the money saved on medical bills on good sound systems in clubs.
MP: Well where do you start? I’d defo try to sort them Somalian pirates.
PA: Spread the fonk!!!
K: Drink expensive wine with Prime Minister Flash Atkins and solve all the problems together.
DATG : If I were leader of the world, I’d have a day off. Or delete the internet – that would be fun. Or in an ideal, nonrealistic world, redistribute a fraction of the profits made by the various energy companies to those in more immediate need…

Beatport

Juno

The Superhero past his prime, Flash Atkins is back with a timeless release of deep slow burning soul that shows off his chops as a producer; and some heavyweight mixes to boot. Featuring Crazy P’s Danielle Moore at her sultry best, the original has live bass, drums, guitar, horns and guitar plus Rhodes and electronics all wrapped up in a killer 90BPM 4/4 groove.

Atjazz pitches things up for some classic deep house, which he does so well. It’s got an afro groove, shuffling percussion, gorgeous pads and keys that tease before the bass hits. He then brings out the song before taking out the bass and stripping it back down to make a hypnotic middle section reminiscent of Global Underground’s The Way. The bass and keys then re-emerge for the soulful end….ahhhhh.

Ashley Beedle, a man who’s had his sticky paws in some of the best dance music of the past twenty years takes the track in to psychedelic rock direction. He gives it a heavyweight drum groove and showcases Danielle’s vocals, using plenty of the original parts but adds some heavily effected guitars and percussion.

The Reprise strips the original mix of all its beats and let’s Danielle’s vocals soar over the Rhodes; and finally Atjazz and Ashley Beedle’s dub are included for those allergic to vocals!


ZUBB Chart – Entry Number 27 - Danielle Moore takes the lead over a simmering soul stew. Ashley Beedle turns up the heat.

Rocky : Atjazz getting played on this week's show. Closing track. Beeeutiful

Jazzanova : My fav is the Atjazz Remix. Sound and arrangement is great.

Tom Findlay (Groove Armada) : Original is great, Ashley Beedle mix is fav though.

Mathew Krysko : Paper's back with a happy chugger - nice one Flash.

Rub n Tug : Cooooool

Chris Duckenfield : Lovely slinky 'Delta House' styles from Sir Beedle. Bonus Blender particularly tasty & some fine Herbertesque scrubbings from AJ as well.

Wolf & Lamb : Jeez... Beedle killed it here!! Amazing, musical remix... my pick of the bunch.

James Teej (Rekids) : Awesome fucking release, finally some real music! The original is dope as hell, and the Ashley Beedle is smashing.

Osunlade : Love the Atjazz remix.

Roberto Rodriguez (Compost / Freerange) : 5 star release here. Really good original with excellent remixes. Full steam ahead!

Leo Zero : Loving this slo-mo funker! - Original Mix and Ashley mix for me!

Stuart Patterson - 'Fonky.. radio playlisted, burnt the whole damn ruddy massive zip as can't decide which mix i like best , i'll have to play them all together in my own re-edit , ta

Into The Valley 6






Into The Valley
Saturday, 29 May, 2010
9.00pm – 1.30am
£5 in advance (before 10-pm on the night)
£6/£8 (after 10pm)
The Trades Club, Hebden Bridge


Experimental club night continues to provide leftfield nu-disco, flat caps and whippets…

Into The Valley presents Lancashire’s Demdike Stare (live) and DJ MLZ

There’s a line-up to shake Hebden to its valley roots with a band from way over the Yorkshire / Lancashire border. Fresh from Manchester’s FutureEverything festival, Demdike Stare, named after Pendle's most famous witch, is the occult new project from Miles Whittaker and Sean Canty, both obsessive vinyl collectors and two individuals operating at the heart of Manchester's fragmented music scene.

Miles is probably better known as Modern Love's DJ MLZ or one half of Pendle Coven. Sean Canty is the dedicated digger behind the Haxan events and a member of the hugely respected Finders Keepers crew of vinyl vultures. This incredible project tracks the sonic leylines of cult soundtracks, classic House templates, punctured dub and modified techno with a proper Lancastrian twist, into asymmetric music that quite brilliantly defies categorisation.

Demdike Stare will be bringing their melting pot of sounds to the Hebden massive live and on wax as DJ MLZ takes over. Resident support comes from local jocks Flash Atkins (PAPERecordings / We Are Woodville) and Chris Price (What the Freak)

The last few Into The Valley’s have been a lock out so tipping a wink to the faithful in these credit-crunching times entry is £5 in advance, online and on the door before 10pm, then £6/£8 thereafter.

Had a day in the studio with the lovely Anna Steel (Greenwood) from Guilty Pleasures to record some vocals....think Empire of the Sun / Fleetwood Mac / Lily Allen
