SOTD: Straight Jack - Breakthrough (Original Mix)

Just another way to better satisfy our listeners addiction to the sickest underground sounds.

We have decided to start featuring some of the hot and talented producers that are out there making a name for themselves.

On our Soundclound minimix hunting adventures we often come accross exellent song productions as well, so we thought we would let you know about them as well.

Feel free to let us know which ones you have stumbled upon or perhaps have conjured up yourselves!

Drop it in our mailbox:
minimixtothemax@gmail.com

We will be bringing you these fairly randomly, so it's not quite a song everyday but more of a song every other day. I present to you the first ever: Song Of The Day!!

It's by Straight Jack, no stranger to faithful MTTM followers. Its a Proggessive Trance track with some awesome uplifting synth work (no..... we not going to review the song here, just bring it to your attention!) and it was all done using Fruity Studio 9.

Competition: Dansville Edition



We not all that Christmasy here at MTTM, so I'm going to leave all that festive cheer to someone else. We do however have something to make you smile and be merry, a competition!

This is how it's going to work, you (Electro/Dubstep/Drum & Bass DJ's) do a 10minute minimix of your hottest tunes.
You upload it to your Soundcloud account, mail us the link: minimixtothemax@gmail.com
Upload the artwork (artwork found right at the bottom of this post to upload on the mix (go to the little pencil icon "click" it and you will be able to edit your track and upload artworks etc).
We post the mix on our blog and on our Facbook page. All you gotta do is round up people to listen to your minimix and get them to like, if they do like of course!

So what do you win I hear you ask? The DJ with the winning minimix (details on how the winner is chosen below) will get a set at the ever popular Dansville party set for the end of March 2011. A feature on the MyCityByNight website and DJhookups have agreed to sponsor some DJing related gear from their 2011 stock range (more details to follow).

While the competition is running we will bring you more info on the competition sponsors, without them we couldn't do all this!

So I guess there gotsta be some rules!? Let's see.........

So what we going to is count the amount of "likes" that each post on the Facebook page gets, we will also add the amount of Soundcloud plays to the "likes" and from there will choose the top 5 minimixes.

You must also have a "full" length promo on your Soundcloud page, at least 30mins long, just so we can see that you can hold an actual set. Also no minimixes done without turn-tables, CDJ's or some sort of MIDI-controller.


Also important to note that the Judges (MTTM, MCBN, Dansville and DJhookups) will be listening to the minimixes. So if it's crap but yet you have managed to hype it up and get it played and liked by whoever, we will not allow it go though as a top 5 minimix. 

MyCityByNight will then take the top 5 minimixes as of the 28th of February and then host them on the their website, they will announce a polling system and from there the winner will be chosen! EASY!!


So... get Minimixing To The MAX!!!

News just in that Mix n Blend have been confirmed as the headliners! Sick stuff indeeeeeed!!!

More on LG Fritz?

LG Fritz started to DJ at the age of 18 while living in the UK. Learning on vinyl he quickly picked up the knowledge and began to Play Hard House and Trance. This quickly let to sets all around the UK playing amongst some of the best underground DJ's in the scene.

Slowly his musical tastes evolved to a new sound emerging from the underground, Electro. LG Fritz was hooked and soon started to promote a monthly event, Audiotronic, showcasing the best up and coming Electro, Breaks and Techno DJ's.

At the age of 21 LG Fritz made the move back to his country of birth, South Africa, in 2007. He took some time away from the DJ scene to concentrate on various other projects including working on some original tracks and remixes.

After an extended break from the scene LG Fritz decided to get back into what he loved the most, playing dirty, filthy, bassline driven music. LG Fritz can be heard playing anything from the dirtiest Dubstep, the craziest Electro and the filthiest Indie Electro/Nu Rave known to man. This young talent is definatly one to watch. With his flawless track selection and effortless mixing skills, he'll soon be ripping up and destroying a dancefloor near you!

Volume 29: Jason Rockwell

This next funky Progressive House minimix has been done by Jason Rockwell, formerly Jason 47 and a past favourite of ours here at MTTM!


This mix has been done to showcase his new style of music he is going to be pushing this coming summer and at the first of his I Love Dance events he will be throwing down.


The first edition will be taking place at Babbaloos in Tableview on the 11th December 2010.


Find about some more about Jason Rockwell and his new sound?


Read on below!


MTTM: We at MTTM have personally been witness to the legend that was Jason 47, which now feels like many years ago! Why the name change?

Rockwell: Yes it feels like a lifetime ago! Those were really fun times it was a great experience being able to be a DJ in that era of the clubbing scene. The name Jason47 became synonomous with Hard Dance or hard music in general so when I changed music styles I reverted back to a name I used to DJ under when I played at house or funk clubs. I actually played as many funky gigs as I did hard, although at the time the hard music was my passion and I'd achieved the most under that alias. So now I use Jason Rockwell or just 'Rockwell'. Its like starting from scratch again but I dont mind as its more for fun now and the love of it whereas back then it was my career and only source of income. Full time DJ and party promoter.

MTTM: What sort of music you going to be playing as Jason Rockwell?

Rockwell: Rockwell is all about playing the genres that I love now which includes mainly Progressive, Tech and House. Im also doing Psytrance mixes for an online radio show but I'm not going to go out of my way to be a Psytrance DJ as I love the music but that lifestyle is not for me anymore.

MTTM: What sort of gear you got laying about? What do you use for your mixes?

Rockwell: I own a set of Pioneer CDJ350's and DJM350 mixer which is a new product launched by Pioneer a few months ago. I love them, I wish I could take them everywhere! They utilize Pioneers new DJ software called Rekordbox (anyone can download it and use it) which when using to organize your music makes life loads easier when exporting to a flash stick and popping then into my CDJ350's. I record all my mixes live while recording straight to USB on the DJM350.

MTTM: Tell us about your dream set up?

Rockwell: I would LOVE to have a set of CDJ2000. Theres nothing else like them. Throw in an Apple Mac and some KRK Expose monitors and a Nord Lead and I'd be a happy man

MTTM: Any plans to get into production? If yes, then what production software are you finding best and any hardware to supplement it?

Rockwell: I've actually dabbled in a bit of production over the years, started in 2001 with Acid Sound Factory and made some really cool hard tunes that myself and a few of my fellow djs used to play out a lot. I even had a tune on 5FM which Derek the Bandit pushed for me which was great. I must admit I've been very lazy to not take it more seriously. I've owned and sold studio gear over and over again. Now that I have access to all the gear I want I'm itching to get back into it 100% and get something out there. Cubase is definitely the software for me as I find it easier to understand and work with.

MTTM: Tell us more about this I Love Dance event, who else is playing, what can we expect soundwise etc etc?

Rockwell: The I LOVE DANCE - Summer Sound System event is basically a party that I put together where people can come and have a really cool time with their friends, party it up and hear some good HAPPY music. We are putting some major effort in with lighting and decor to make the venue look and feel different and my aim is to creative a people friendly environment so we can all have a good time. I want to completely remove the 'serious' element of clubbing and hopefully get people to let loose and stomp away on the dance floor.

MTTM: Any future events you planning on doing? Anything for NYE?

Rockwell: We currently have our Sundowner Sessions vibe every Friday, Saturday and Sunday (my favourite) so we will be doing a NYE Sundowner Session from about 8pm till about 3am. The great thing about this venue is that its close to home, right on the beach and the vibe is fantastic. I recommend everyone to come and check it out on a Sunday afternoon from 3:30 onwards. I also am playing another I LOVE DANCE event for Jan/Feb next year but want to first make sure everything runs smoothly with this first one. I hope to see you all there!

MTTM: Lastly we would just like to hear some of your thoughts on the current Cape Town clubbing scene since you've been invloved for so long!

Rockwell: I think its an exciting time in the Cape Town clubbing scene as there seem to be an influx of international artists visiting us each month with some really big branded events. People are getting more exposed to music genres that used to be the 'underground' sound and are now all over the radio. Progressive, techno and house have all come a long way and people are more open to the music which is very cool.

More small clubs are popping up all the time which is great for DJ's because it means more gigs, more exposure and more experience playing to different crowds. Neon is back in again, hard music is almost long forgotten and things have come full circle so its a great time for new DJ's to get out there.

Volume 28: Idioteque

Some crazy filthy hard Electro beats to get you idiotic! This minimix in by the talented duo going by the name of Idioteque.

They fast blazing a trail across the local club scene and one of the main reasons has been their extremly tight production skills! After you've checked the mix and found out some more about them, be sure to browse the rest of the Soundcloud page to take a listen to some of their tracks.

You can catch them at the next Dansville event on the 10th of December (Didn't we promise some more info on Dansville?? Coming sooooooon!!)

Right now though lets get down to some conversation with Idioteque!!!

MTTM: First off, let's get down to how that name came about!?

Idioteque: Haha, well.. I was thinking of names. Coming up with things like Beetlejuice and Jack Frost, when my friend calls me an idiot for coming up with such kak names. So being French, French has a lot of words with words ending in teque I added a "eque" to the end of "idiot"
and typed into google, to find that there was a song named that which I liked, so i chose it then and there!

MTTM: Haha nice 'n interesting indeed! Tell me about your music style, what you play and who has influenced you locally to get into DJjing?

Idioteque: Well locally, Das Kapital has influenced me the most, I heard at a him at a few house party's way back and I wanted to do whatever he was doing on those decks! Then i heard HAEZER and that basically concreted the idea of becoming a DJ in my head. Hard thrashing Electro is what we do best!!

MTTM: So you also going to be producing tracks as well, infact you have already done some production, tell us more, whats in the pipeline for the future?

Idioteque: Well, we will be coming out with two remixes soon, and then were just going full out at producing some right out dirt. We really want to set ourselves as Electro producers first and then maybe spill out some dubstep tunes later on.

MTTM: Sick! So what kind of toys do you guys use and play with?

Idioteque: Well Jasper has a studio at his house, not state of the art but all we need to produce.

MTTM: What kinda gear and software?

Idioteque: We are using Reason 5 and Cubase at the moment but are planning to get into Ableton for our future work.

MTTM: Ive seen some pic's doing the rounds and of you with an APC40, we looking forward to some "live" Idioteque shows!! ?

Idioteque: Yeah, we recently got the Akai APC40, its a mean mean grinding machine haha!!!

MTTM: Well gents, thanks for your time and looking forward to thrashing it out with you at the Dansville event! (MTTM represented with JoNNY RoboTIX & LG Fritz B2Bing it!!)

Volume 27: JoNNY RoBoTIX

Some chunky sexy Tech House here by JoNNY RoBoTIX.


A preview to what he is going to lay down at Full Flavour's Cruel Summer Party at FTV on Saturday the 11th of December.


We had a chat with the brains behind the Full Flavour brand to find out a bit more on what they all about!


Read on.....


MTTM: In a nutshell, tell me what Full Flavour is all about?

Full Flavour: Diversity through music, dance and social interaction.

MTTM: How did the name Full Flavour come about?

Full Flavour: I wanted a name that didn’t limit me to any particular genre . It had to be a name that said that this party was full of possibilities and not pegged down in any way.

MTTM: What can somebody expect when they go to a Full Flavour party?

Full Flavour: Full Flavour is first and foremost a great night out. We choose our venues very carefully and try to make sure that there is a great balcony or deck where people can socialize away from the hustle & bustle of the dance floor and bars. We try to bring and overall experience rather than a solely dance floor oriented party. Times have changed and so has clubbing. Gone are the wide eyed days of 6 hour straight stomping on the dance floor. The discerning clubber today demands more than that and that’s what we try to provide. An experience.

MTTM: Future plans for your brand?

Full Flavour: Nightclubs are very limited so I’d like to see Full Flavour being hosted at some non traditional venues in 2011. I think it would make for some really interesting productions that could allow us to bring a greater fun factor to our events.
What I’m most excited about is developing and launching our website next year.
Dj Petaski – a musical prodigy who started playing piano by ear at the age of 3 and has now fallen in love with art of mixing.

MTTM: Tell me about your thinking for having JoNNY RoBoTIX on the line-up?

Full Flavour: As fate would have it Full Flavour has developed into a bit of a commercial monster. With FTV having two dance floors we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to push boundaries a bit with an underground floor. JoNNy is a very diverse DJ and has the ability to drop anything from Drum & Bass to Tech House. We really want to bring a more progressive element to the sound and we feel that he is just the right man for the job.

DC BREAKS - UNOFFICIAL

Just felt like we should bring this banginglishous Drum & Bass minimix to your attention! It's been done by DC Breaks (UK) and features their smash hit Halo!!


Halo EP Minimix by DC Breaks (UK)

The DC Breaks duo teamed up with Andy C's Ram Records in 2005, signing several tracks to Frequency Recordings, including their biggest release to date 'Pickett Line', which has since received swathes of Radio One support from the likes of Pete Tong (’One of my favourite Drum & Bass tunes of the year’), Zane Lowe & Annie Mac, and then ‘Flashback’ which settled into the Radio One ‘Hottest Records’ Podcast for the entire Summer of 2009. Their music has long been a favourite of DJs across the globe including Andy C, DJ Marky, Chase & Status, High Contrast & London Elektricity.

They have performed remixes for Universal, Sony, Rough Trade, Ministry of Sound, Island, Parlaphone, EMI and AATW, including artists such as Paloma Faith, Example, Tinie Tempah and ROX, and all have been championed by leading Radio 1 DJs including Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Annie Nightingale and even Greg James.

DC Breaks have also featured on Viper Recordings, run by the legendary Futurebound, featuring on the first single of the label’s new compilation 'Acts Of Madmen', and their first solo EP, the Halo EP, is due to come out in March 2010.

The duo have spent years crafting their live package, DJ-ing across 6 decks and two mixers, and they are rapidly becoming one of the most exciting acts in Drum n Bass. From Bristol to Brisbane, they can be caught all over the UK & Europe, with a tour of North America planned for July '10, and a return tour to Australia & New Zealand commencing in November '10.

MTTM: UNOFFICIAL

So Skrillex has been serving up a storm of Dubstep / Electro remixes and originals of late. It's no wonder someone has decided to dedicate a lil Minimix to some of his hottest work.

Get down and dirty to some Electro/Tech treats from
Vibe Nation who is laying down some more of this spanking electronic vibes at Brick City Selection this Friday 19th November.
He is on the decks from 11:30 till 1, so get on it!

Don't know much about Vibe Nation?


Read on..............


MTTM: How did the name Vibe Nation come about? Sounds like it could be a radio show or the name of a sick party!

Vibe Nation: No no! Just a track I liked, old school Housy track, sounded catchy so i just took it!

MTTM: Its a cool name we deeeeg it! Vibey stuff!

Vibe Nation: Haha thanks bro!

MTTM: What do you know about Brick City, you sent in mixes to them before?

Vibe Nation: Ya I've known about them for a while now but up until recently I was DJing permanently in Stellies and the gigs would always clash soo I never really had time. Entered into the latest one and fortunatly they chose me.

MTTM: Awesome stuff, yeah we really dig their concept as well. What sort of genre do you play?

Vibe Nation: Electro and Break Beat at the moment but very keen to get into Tech House it just doesnt have a large appeal in Cape Town at the moment.

MTTM: What gear you got hiding at home?

Vibe Nation: I am currently using the M Audio Xponent, but have played on just about everything else out there.

MTTM: Dream setup?

Vibe Nation: Probably the new M Audio mixer NR 700 I think its called that.

MTTM: Is that a MIDI controller?

Vibe Nation: Ya, for me its the future of DJing some people have their doubt's but I can't see it going any other way

MTTM: Well there's serious debate raging all over the internet about it, not going to get into it now! Got any plans to get into production?

Vibe Nation: Ya, have be messing around on Cubase and Fruity for about a year now. Have not really time to put hard yard into making a fully legit track but have a few "work in progress" ones that just need some tweaking, should be ready by early next year.

MTTM: What genre are they?

Vibe Nation: Mostly Tech House and a couple glitchy Break Beat one's that I've been working on recently.

MTTM: Hmmmm, nice looking forward to hearing them! Thanks for your time man and good luck for friday, rock that shit!

Vibe Nation: Thanks bro, later!

Add some effects , scratching and mashing up live music, combined with one of the most energetic and exciting artists to watch live (You will usually see him climbing on the tables or crowd surfing when the mood is right) and you have a mind blowing performance each time!

MTTM: VOL 24

Final installment of the DANSVILLE pres. NISKERONE,HYPHEN & more minimix promo's.

This one in by one of Cape Town's hottest up and coming Drum & Bass DJ's, he goes by the name Totem. No fanpage up as yet but keep up to date with him here
Totem = Joshua Michael Martin.

He has been kind enough to sit down with us and answer some probing questions!

MTTM: So I'm going to assume that there is a bit of a story behind the DJ name Totem and I'm very keen to hear it!

Totem: To tell you the truth the story of Totem is quite a bland one. I wanted a name which summed up the style of Dum & Bass I'm trying to bring which is different, fresh and natural.

MTTM: Yeah a DJ's name is actually made on the dance floor, what the clubbers/listeners associate with Totem (banging shit!) rather than a cool story on how it came about.

MTTM: Tell us what got you into playing Drum & Bass?

Totem: After listening to the immense talent at Homegrown I was amazed at the way tracks could be stringed together at such speed and quality. Started listening to some of the big names and been hooked ever since. I love listening to the great D&B talent that Cape Town hosts at the moment. Mysterion, Hyphen, Niskerone, Counterstrike are just a few names that come to mind which give me something to aspire and work towards.

MTTM: What are your feelings behind Drum & Bass getting played on 5fm and the possible "commercialising" of the genre.

Totem: I've got nothing against D&B being commercialised as long as producers keep churning out the quality of tracks that they do at the moment. If they start changing their style to try and fit in more then that's when I'd start having a problem with it.

MTTM: What kind of gear do you have or use to do your mixes on?

Totem: I mix on Pioneer CDJ100's and a Behringer VMX 300. Decided if I could mix on those I could mix on almost anything.

MTTM: What have you heard about Dansville? Looking forward to the gig?

Totem: I've just been hearing great things about Dansville. Hear the venue and rig is great as well as an energetic crowd. Looking forward to warming up the night with some rolling liquid before the heavyweights (Hyphen and Niskerone) do what they do best.

MTTM: There's a little rumour going around that you holidaying in Thailand and may sneak in a few gigs, elaborate!

Totem: Yeah, I am heading up to Thailand for two months. Been messaging around and found that there are quite a few clubs playing D&B out. If everything goes according to plan I could well be playing a couple gigs while I'm up there.

MTTM: Sounds awesome! Well shot for your time man! Looking forward to seeing you play next Friday!!

Totem: Big ups mate, PEACE!

Editors note: There were a few questions he declined to comment on, we will pry them out of him next time!

MTTM: VOL 20

So we going to try something a little bit different with regards to the blog. Basically up until now, the blog and the Facebook page have been fairly identical and that really gives no-one much of a reason to come and check out the blog. We also very keen to provide a more detailed look into the DJ's that we post and what they are getting up to and future plans etc etc.
So we going to do random mini-interviews with whoever we feel you ought to know more about.
So with no further crappings on, I give you Dubfish!!!!!!

MTTM: Well first up is to ask about the name, what's all this fishy business about!?

Dubfish: Well my surname is Fisher so my nickname is Fish. I'm dubstep crazy so my
friends and school mates associate me with the genre to quite an extreme.
Basically I just combined the two. Was thinking of changing it to DJ Whale Fish or DJ SafeSex.

MTTM: Hahaha yes to DJ SafeSex, Guuuuvament will love it! You could get yourself
some LoveLife gigs. Not going to go too "indepth" about why you wana be called
SafeSex haha!

MTTM: Dude, tell me whats your inspiration behind finding all this music and posting it a few
times a day. We always seeing it on your FB profile, we likey!

Dubfish: I have a great passion for music. There is sooo much good music out there and it
needs to be shared and promoted. Also sometimes I'm just procrastinating
studying or what not. People seem to dig the music I find, so I might as well use the
ability as best I can. I really dig finding new music that brings something different.

MTTM: Ya we agree dude! Followed a few of the tracks you have posted and they have been
sick. Tell me what equipment you using for your mixes.

Dubfish: Well at the moment just my pc with whatever software works well. At the moment I'm
using Traktor Scratch pro. But at a gig I'll use whatevers there. I should be getting a
Vestax Typhoon quite soon through George Daniel from Dj Hookups. Really good
prices.

MTTM: Any ambitions to get into production?

Dubfish: Ye totally amped for production. Mainly I've been doing some remix competitions. I
entered the Pendulum - The Island one as well as the Felix Cartal - Love One. Nothing
spectacular though.

MTTM: What you using?

Dubfish: Mainly just FL STUDIO 9 for most of it. For the Love One track I just took the stems
and did a DJ mix with them. Was more fun than anything else.

MTTM: Well man, we going to keep these mini-interview things short and sweet so thats all
we got time for. Glad I got to know what you about a bit better and thats the whole
idea behind these interviews.

Dubfish: No problem. Shot a lot!!

Enjoy Halloween? Wana do it again? Ok, here you go! I bring you a belated Drum & Bass Halloween treat from Christi Crunch Du Toit.
He is still adament that his music is all just a hobby, a way to kill some spare hours. But judging by how much music is always been thrown our way, productions included and the... amount of "plays" his work gets I think something a little more serious is in the pipelines! Watch this space as they say!!

Sick little artwork as well! Deeeeeeeg it!!!

MTTM: VOL 17

Ok, so we've gone without the Roman numerials thing. Had a look down the line and it's going to get messy. When we get to say
VOL 88 you looking at LXXXVIII, bit big to fit on the artworks!
Well, you here for the music so hear you go!!

No, it's not a history lesson, it's an assault on the senses by Blitzkrieg. Take a listen to this minimix and be prepared for a bombardment of Electro Distortion!

Really glad we have been able to play host to some of the hottest up and coming artists around and will continue to do so.

You can catch Blitzkrieg doing this sort of Distortion thang at the DANSVILLE event scheduled for the end of November sometime. Look out for details on the fanpage!

MTTM: VOL XVI

Right, so Electro has been ruling the MTTM volumes so far.....BUT dubstep is probably the fastest growing in terms of following etc in and around clubland (our humble opinion).

So I present to you Half-Life's latest dubstep minimix. It's 10 or so minutes of absolute filthy mayhem and you can catch him drop...ping these sort of bombs this coming weekend at the ever popular bi-monthly Rubadub Sat 23 October event.

Be there from 3 - 4 to catch his set, it's gonna get SO messed up!!

Also lend him a hand in getting on the Brick City Bling Edition's line-up this coming Sat at Fiction. Click that you attending and write Half-Life on the wall..... Easy!!

MTTM: VOL XV

Really stoked to have some minimixes from some more well established names on the scene and you don't get much more established than George Daniel. A career spanning more than a decade and playing alongside some massive names (check the info page) at the biggest clubs says it all really!

Onto the mix now and it's awesome to have something different. I think its safe to say that Breaks isn't the top genre you will hear being banged out at clubs. But after listening to this I think you'll agree that we could use more.... ALOT MORE!

So... you like? You want more? Sure! Catch him this coming Sat 23rd October at the Brick City Bling Ed. ft. BRUCE WILLIS / ILLTASTIC / GEORGE DANIEL and more.
Then next weekend Fri 29th October at the DANSVILLE MASSACRE its going to be a butchery!!

MTTM: UNOFFICIAL


So an unofficial minimix is any mix out on soundcloud that we find hot and would dig for you to listen to.
It is of course the best way to serve up a preview to anyone who doesnt know who the hell you are and what/how you play.

Also just a little update that things are picking up slowly, got plenty minimixes in the mailbox and are just about ready to be posted. Some of them are by some very well established Dj's and we are very stoked to have the attention of some of the hottest Dj's around!

Been hearing great things about DJ ANTENTION so seriously considering hitting DONT PARTY / GRIET/ Discotheque Presents: DJ ANTENTION (Russia) at The Assembly this evening to go and check him out.

Found a little minimix done by him so its a perfect little taster to what he can do and yeah he does it WELL!!

You can catch him playing regularly at the hottest happenings that side of the Wors Curtain, a sick party brand called DANSVILLE.

Be sure to attend these parties even if your votes aren't enough to see your fave artist through, as they are banging, going on till the lights come on.. quite literally!!

MTTM: VOL XII

Looks like the word is spreading far an wide, this mix done by HerbStrike all the way from Newcastle in the UK.

A "humble bedroom Dj" is how he describes himself and we all started somewhere, so we are glad to provide a platform for anybody at any level.

He has also pointed me to this sick Djing website called
DJ TechTools ...... Sick stuff indeed!

Take a listen to his Electro mix and leave some comments or "likes" and let him know what you think!!

Sunday Evening News Flash

This evenings mix is done by Das Kapital. Sent in to commemorate 500 fans on his FB page, nicely done! Go on over and join the fun, heres to the next 500.

Its some electro funk, at times noisy at times smooth, but always FUN!

Catch him playing his favoured brand of NASTY on the Brick City Massive floor this coming Friday at Assembly. Check out the event on FB over here:

Also just to mention the hosts of the Brick City Massive floor. Brick City are a sick brand to be on the lookout for, especially if you're an aspiring Dj looking to crack a winner of a gig.
