BleeD

bit  late to blog this but in an effort to get back into life and celebrating music I will note that the ever excellent casper / volte Face / electro survivor has put out out lots of good music on his own BleeD label and the finest one out of many fine ones for me is EP2 and track ,  Rote 3 is the great ‘running through the forrest but not necessarily scared’ track

Im getting Bandulu   Neu /Rother  and Gas  feelings from the very metalic but warm sounding techno and ambient available here

The Right To Party – London free party recollections & south coast /south west scene

Hello peeps, I want to bring your attention to a much maligned and misunderstood scene, that of the free party scene, yes the same which makes you think of the ( straggly ) dreaded special brew / super strength cider and k crew ; yes there is that but lets reflect on some positive elements and shed light on some novel venues and uses of public places for things other than car boot sales or rotting shells of previous industry.
The lovely and very wise Elissa Brewer reminisces and ponders on the free party scene in London and surrounding areas during 91 – 99 and makes some salient points re self regulating and the damage done by K and other non party enhancers

Sam Blay who runs Roach Material Rave Flyers a visual history of the southern rave/club scene through cataloging all the great and some terrible artistic examples points to the DSS sound system from Bournemouth who provided infamous parties on the south coast and who wisely escaped to Australia and are still running huge systems and making stomachs feel a bit gippy with their nasty D&B and Dubstep

also of note is the Free party People blog which details some of the huge free parties with some vary hazy and nonsensical recollections and a great source for all things free party related from the glory years of 90 – 94 before the criminal justice bill came into effect – linked to them is the fantastic Spannered books a small publishing house who just put out an excellent piece of pulp fiction based in the Bristol Free Party Scene – it captures the frentic pace, the highs and lows in a hazy psychedelic stream of consciousness which could amount to being cobblers but luckily isnt

read a preview here

Over to Elissa ” It seemed to be whoever, was doing something all of the systems would collaborate ( ed> big ones including Spiral Tribe , Circus Warp , Bedlam and ( my fave DiY) you can find loads of anecdotes and party history here http://freepartypeople.wordpress.com/ ,

” Everyone would just get on board in any way they could it was just before everyone used the internet to disseminate information , when there was a lot of creativity involved with people making floro back drops and weird sculptures from whatever they could lay their hands on. Making rudimentary video projections and even cine and super 8 ( now thats considered quite quaint or retro cool given that cheaper digital projectors and video editing and youtube have made it dead easy and cheap to provide visuals ) and also the music was at a point were there was still alot of innocence and you would hear lots of strains of different dance music albeit of the harder variety with the exception of the likes of DiY who played brilliant basic deep house music and deep slower techno
DiY

Simon DK & Digs and Whoosh from Aforementioned DiY ( who celebrated 20 years and still going in illegal raves in 09 )

DIY had a system at the rave that was to be the last straw for huge free parties and would arguably bring on the Criminal Justice Bill – … here’s a simon dk playlist for castlemorton some choice tunes get ready to shock out

apparently this weatherall remix of the Orb was big at castle morton – mustve been amazing to be rocking and shocking to this – dub it up!

Elisa comments on the more common sight of female djs at free parties “the DJ’s I witnessed were amazing! particularly the women , one woman dj I rememebr completely blew the place apart with a mixture of techno and afro beats (possibly Gizelle?) …People often brought their own instruments. One friend of mine from a gypsy spanish background always brought her castanets to parties it wasn’t all terrible bongos and didgeridoos thankfully ” some of the favorite female djs on the scene and in the techno world were people like Gayle San (Final Frontier/ The Omen resident both clubs worthy of their own posting ) and Brenda Russell who would also play in my home town of Bournemouth at a legendary club called the Outer Limits alongside other uk Legends like Colin Dale, Dave Angel and my fave Dave Clarke . you can find out what where the promoter and DJ Paul Edge wound up here – pretty amazing story you can find some of the flyers from classic south coast clubs like Madisons, The Manor,
Sterns (in worthing) and The Academy ( now the Opera House/02 academy ? fuck knows it seems to change every 3 years ) http://geriatricravers.blayboy.co.uk/oldgeriatricravershistory.html

A big free party organizer in the south known for their raves in strange places were the DSS sound system who once blagged their way into a church hall by duping the parish vicar much to the chargrin of the villagers .

that event was incredible despite the hall only holding 500 people it went on til mid morning before it finally got busted and I think the organisers managed to keep their rig and were not charged Im proud to say I know the people behind it who put on some amazing parties including cave parties near sandbanks and beach raves along the south coast but primarily in Bournemouth – home of the Blue Rinse and Tory stronghold
DSS are very much still alive and their rig lives on in sydney where they are evading the authorities putting on events of upwards of 3000 people in legal and ileagal spaces this tribute site also links to roach material a paper history through the acid house / raves scene with a south coast bias

http://www.roachmaterial.co.uk/

One monumental rave organizer was Fantazia who presented this amazing rave which saw some of the best weather and very strong sweets by the looks of it! There is not one raver kid born before 82 who doesn’t know ratpacks refrain

Now I was standing in the corner ….

Oh just watch the video ! Whistle posse blow !

very interesting to see an appearance by mr Andrew Weatherall in 1990 at Madisons for the Flesh Event with Chad Jackson in room 2 .

Madisons was a classic bournemouth rave den in the mould of a sharon and tracey club loads of mirrors and dodgy interior unfortunately it had to close due to a dangerously unsafe floor due to all the stomping that wouldve meant 500 + ravers could of come crashing through the floor into the miss selfridge below at any of the events … ) also worth a special mention is Boy With Style events at Remix which saw such luminaries as Moby and Carl Cox Play in this brilliant club + nights from Flying records who had a branch in Bournemouth and would provide brilliant club tours inc the junior boys own label connection

Heres a vid of local legend dj dream playing some very hard belgian gear with loads of hoover at Remix – make some fucking noise yeah!

I also remember a bi monthly residency from sasha and digweed (northern exposure ) at the aforementioned Madisons that saw epic prog house tunes such as this and saw people crying, group hugging and generally flying high

….endless car conveys out into the middle of the new forrest and down to bournemouth beach ensued …alas this raver was too young and had to sneak back to mates houses and come down on the patio or in stinky teenage bed rooms heres some vids from john digweeds hastings and brighton parties obviously brighton had a better scene than lil old bournemouth but we had beautiful long sandy beaches !

from the bedrock website “Found this lying around the house and thought I would share it with you.
One of the coach trips from Hastings to The Event in Brighton in 1991 for one of the legendary Passion nights
which followed on from the successful Storm Parties in 1990 nearly 2000 ravers every month having it large.

Also must mention the legend that is Mike Speed local resident at madisons Mike speed moved from his native scotland down to the Bournemouth his sets were legendary and often surpassed the guests at madisons and the manor including a rather moody Sasha when he was going a bit too wafty into the prog / trance stuff in the late 90s . Mikey speed used to work in local record shops and would always be friendly and point out all the best new techno and house releases and get in the best stuff he was an inspiration to many a young DJ from bournemouth and deserves more credit for his work – Mikey i want tae go back tae back wi youse one day ya big yin

one guest who must of played at least 3 times a year bown in btown and who mike speed always warmed up for was Billy Nasty one of the best techno djs in the world his fast cutting and ruthless brutalist yet still funky style. his sets would include classic acid to leeds bleepy stuff to early Hawtin (before it went all tits up for him ) up to early trance and hard house Mrs Woods style
tracks like Robot Man Got To Do The Do really stick in the memory though

he was so inspirational to I and many other djs
this radio one essential mix features plenty of legends such as dave clarkes red series , underworld , the aloof , andrew weatherall’s sabres of paradise and conemelt

other huge nights such as Electric Kingdom had Carl Cox , dave angel , Westbam & cj bolland and huge jungle and hardcore nights at the much missed Madisons

another huge event venue was the academy – now the opera house before slinky took over and turned it into a hardhouse nightmare. people like laurent garnier playing broad sets including a drum and bass section which went down very well with the crowds – shouts must go to the cocoshebeen crew and also the much missed Manor nightclub which saw ravers elated with the Destiny and legacy nights with three floors of house , garage and drum and bass and unfortunately for me the dreaded happy hardcore was well represented there as well

anyway enough of my south coast dreaming ! back to Elisa and the free party scene in London.

“an ugly side to the free-party scene that was starting to creep the late 90s was the Ketamine …. the regretamine, which really put a downer on the creativity, and lots of people dependent on it. The older generation were sad to see the effect of it. Also on some occasions problems with drug gangs infiltrating the parties, menacing Yardies who would harass party goers . I personally saw little of it but was aware of stories and heard scary things . But on a whole the party scene was completely self regulated… amazingly peaceful considering the volume of people in such a space… a real sense/ atmosphere of solidarity and needing to be in it together for everyone there. The ultimate point was to go for as long as possible for as many people as possible regardless of who they were and where they came from it was a social experiment there werent the social divisions you see in regular clubs and events
an this is What i really loved was the way free parties broke down alot of social barriers. Living in London, there was so alot of that clubbing experience that could feel very “cattlemarket”, consumer culture driven, sexist, racist, ageist, even at some so called alternative settings such as Glastonbury ( which today is nothing like the edgier and more vibrant beast it was ) . All that was completely broken down at free parties. For me, I think that was one of the things that was most interesting about it. It broke down the normal expectations and social constructs. The experience I had as a woman, was very good, because I felt free from the normal widespread expectations of a woman at a mainstream club or festival , ie, to look as pretty as possible, and attract a man, or be on a man’s arm. At the parties, all that went out of the window. Elements of it sometimes came into play, but I think women felt freer to express themselves as people. After three days at those free parties, the last thing anyone cared about what what they looked like.
Interestingly, I met a lot of women, who worked in the sex trade, in some way or another, either prostitutes, lap/ table dancers, and I think from what I saw anyway, it was an escape from the normal constructs of society that was their normal reality. I suppose there were also drugs there, and a lot of them were obviously fed drugs as part of their work. So they were addicted, but at least I suppose they had the opportunity to feel more connected in the party environment, also to express themselves as people and not be objectified.

That’s just an example, lots of ego stuff was broken down… people didn’t identify so much with themselves, have anything to prove, it was more of a solidarity experience, people went there wanting to feel connected and were more open to that. And weirdly, considering the lack of formal “security” people always felt safer there than in normal clubs. On the rare occasion something would happen, even something as lttle as a comment, there was a firece loyalty and friends stepped in for each other straight away. But actually these moments were rare, there was most of the time a pervasive sense of just wanting to have a good time, connect, dance, get away from the normal constraints of society, quite anarchic, but also with a strong sense of what was not OK . Having said that I was punched once! But thats because I stepped right into the fray to break up a fight and caught a fist in the mouth, but that was the only actual fight I ever saw. And after I understood, that actually one of the men involved had been very out of order and the other one had felt that he was a real threat. The result was a massive verbal onslaught on the guy, people stepped up to work out what had happened, and it turned out the guy, he’d actually been violent towards his girlfriend, had seriously stepped out of line, and he wasn’t seen again at any parties.
From my experience, I thought it was very sad that the K got in the way

Also the other harder drugs and reliance on alcohol were annoying and ground people down . Some drugs were strongly considered unacceptable like crack and heroin , and this was very verbalized on occasions were it entered into the area. People did not want the drug gangs to become part of the situation but it was the drug dealing element that really numbed the creativity, and the connection vibe that ecstasy and acid use brought … With the K, which was the main drug of choice by the late 90s , people talked of the potential to have out of the body experience together.

But this experience is really quite rare and often people just end up a useless mess in the K hole

and the down sides were too great, sometimes it would look like a mortuary with unable bodies strewn around the party It also left people too vulnerable to thievery although I felt safe there most of the time, there was a limit, I felt, as a person of being able to let yourself be so totally removed from reality in that kind of environment.
But then a certain amount of getting high some way or another, was very much part of the experience, and was personal to each person.

“ I experienced crazy things with people in acting out strange situations These mad ones were in Camden, MI5 building near St Thomas’s hospital, Islington, Old street, Stratford, West London, Hammersmith, Acton, Vauxhall and Brixton. I Remember Zeebedee Boing a DJ and promoter being a key figure and all the Stay up forever crew like Chris liberator D.A.V.E the drummer who was often around at the time playing and pivotal figure in the scene.
D.A.V.E the drummer One Night In Hackney

the people behind the great parties were mainly from Slough and East London . I remember a rave in Acton, which was probably the best one of the best ones ( and there were many!) I went to, massive sound systems, amazing set up lazers strafing the whole place and intense strobes … absolutely brilliant atmosphere possibly around 5000 people there at one point we sat out side the warehouse where there were a load of old smashed computers, we put up an Internet Cafe sign… people just came by and pretended to be at the cafe and started asking for coffee and cakes Very surreal…childlike, fun…Everyone completely loved up.

Loads of Italians in amazing luminous perfect techno gear, like from some kind of manga cartoon, alongside, all the techno kids, travellers and punks, and whoever else wanted to come in…everyone having an excellent time, and being excellent to each other as far as I could see. …the main thing was getting to a point where you totally felt free and became fast friends with people over 2 – 3 days.

if this track from a john peel session doesnt make you want to find the nearest warehouse and go mental then you are dead inside!

As the free party scene has become so rare these days thanks to Michael Howard and the previous Tory Government then the successive Labour government who devolved into the Tony Blair war machine/Gordon Brown Debacle and now our current bunch of Tory twats cutting deep and hard into our grannies and pockets . ably assisted by their lib dem bottom scrapers I feel a bit sad that generations now will maybe never know the feeling of a truly great free party or even a good underground club where people are off their faces and really friendly – of course they are out there but you have to look pretty hard to find proper kicks
stuff like this makes me really sad that people want to pay to see a man steve angello in trackie bottoms playing cds and not really mixing ( prerecorded set ala guetta) and spitting everywhere at huge dry fests like this

… perhaps this summer we will see a resurgence in free parties what with the fuzz distracted by the O-schlimpics – lets hope! come on free party people get organized lets have some huge rigs assembled !

ONI AYHUN 26 2 11 @ Enix Pratersauna Vienna + Wolfram & Hercules and Love Affair – Fireworks track + Felix The House Rat

posted Oni Ayhun before when he came to play at Bleed Music at XOYO in London back in October but reason to post again is because ENIX another great promoter based in Vienna are putting him on Felix and Wolfram (Marflow) are two disco devil dogs with a great reputation for booking legendary stuff No abelton bores in sight – ive had the pleasure of djing with them and not only are they wise gents but excellent party rockers with a formidable knowledge of dance music and who play a broad spectrum of jacking house , acid, disco , italo and stuff that to my ears is hard to place

Wolfram Amadeus has been putting stuff out on Gomma as Discokaine / Marflow ( i cant keep up!) and now an album and singles on Permanent Vacation and has worked with greats such as Sally Shapiro, Andrew Butler from Hercules and Love Affair and Vienna’s synth daddy Patrick Pulsinger – he actually hooked up the great marriage of Hercules with Pulsinger and you can hear the effects on the new Hercules Album. + theres a certain Mr Haddaway on Wolframs Album – yes what is love Haddaway – gorgeous! here’s Fireworks which sounds like a great end of the nighter to keep you rushing and gnashing ! buy the ep as we all know its better on wax …

here’s a snatch from the press release

“Fireworks” is the first single from the highly acclaimed self titled debut album by Wolfram Eckert aka Wolfram. It features nobody else than one of the biggest disco pop phenomena of recent times on the mic: Hercules and Love Affair. This collaboration is no accident, but a result of a long friendship between Wolfram and Andy Butler from H&LA. Wolfram was also the guy who introduced Andy to Patrick Pulsinger in Vienna, who later coproduced the Hercules and Love affair Album “Blue Songs”. On the Euro Dance infected song “Fireworks”, Andy and his band colleague Kim Ann Foxman present a stunning emotionally charged performance, refurbishing the torch song genre with a contemporary touch of sparkling synthesizer melodies: Once in the ear forever in the heart. ”

buy it here

Anyway back to Oni not that he needs much more promo he’s already pretty well know for the OTHER project – as Oni his stuff is amazing! dreamy a little trancey long build ups soft pads – im no expert but it makes you fly! here’s the best track – now go see! sat 26th pratersauna ( beefed up system!)

D/R/U/G/S do Good Things to Your Lugs (holes)

Hello 2011 looks like there’s going to be more great stuff made with cheap tech and put out there via the interweb – this year i have to make something a bit more advanced than a 25 minute mini mix ( self flagellating oneself with a copy of sound on sound magazine)

anyway enough of my electronic ambitions heres D/R/U/G/S with some loaded questions ahead of their trip down to One Party State the electronic oasis in a world of Trilbey wearing tossers at the Barfly on tonight! – D/R/U/G/S grew up on Underworld , Warp Records , Eno, Boards of canada and Aphex Twin by the sounds of it and have been making tunes / remixes with Egyptian Hip Hop those fellow Mancunian candidates for greatness – unlike Delphic these guys actually take you to ecstatic places with their music

here’s an interview slightly leaning towards the opinion that England is a bit shagged out – we need another summer of Love ! bring on the power pingers drug lords of holland and russia!

Have you ever been to an outdoor rave / free party / warehouse event that was DIY and was it good ?

Nah, we don’t mix with those crowds ie people with the money to put something like that on. I think you get shit like that happening
in places like Oxford, not grime cities like Manchester and London. There’s this big feeling especially in Manchester among people our age
of having missed out on some golden generation of rave or whatever, i dont see it like that at all.

What do you think of Tiesto / Swedish House Mafia / Guetta et al

These are like massive mainstream dance guys right? I couldnt say ive ever heard any of their beats although I probably will have done while walking past some hideous bar where people with jobs go. I can’t deal with that production style at all, super compressed pounding beats, the synths all squelched into a huge mess of sound.

What do you think of the idea of conscription ( compulsory social work/army ) I live in Austria and they still have it and it seems to keep the young uns busy– I think its a pretty good idea but then again i wouldn’t want to do it!

Im not sure that arming and training the feral youth of this country to run faster is such a good idea.

Do you like Britain in 2010 ?

Nope. Too many people leaving angry Youtube comments. Few people our age even seem interested in anything creative. It’s all fucked.
We are so far away from what we could be its untrue.

Do you think we are going to see the end of the world or serious discomfort for us spoilt westerners ?.

Most westerners live in serious discomfort, at least in this country. The wealth % split is outrageous.

Is there a point in voting anymore ? Could you give a rats assssss

I think last year just about summed it up, you vote Lib Dem and get Tory. The agenda is clearly already set. No matter who you vote for
they’re guaranteed to be capitalist scum fucks out to line the pockets of whoever paid for them to get there in the first place.

questions OVER!

well there you go – erudite and angry young men disenfranchised with the UK – time to find the Neu Welt when the government no longer serves the people – just leave and get adopted by a new one – I dont want to sound preachy but since i moved away i realize what a shit pit the UK is. Sorry! thers lots to Love but for me … nah too many DFS sales and constant barrage of people trying to skank you, shank you an what not … rant over

anyway shameless plug -go see them tonight 8/01 /11 barfly

and in Austria 27th Jan at Market TBA Love Club with Becoming Real! whoop – big line up with Metaxis too from austro land

WILD GEESE , MODEL 500 , BODY HAMMER PARTIES, JACK LOOKING BACK, UNDER_SCORE PARTIES BRISTOL

hold tight theres a lot to read here !
I’M feeling wistful for pounding bass from free parties/ i need a time machine to take Wild Geese Touch back, way back and hear this coming out of a 100 k rig somewhere in the hampshire /dorset/ someset region with the sun coming up and in a misty field and buzzing on a yellow callie or a rhubarb and custard. I fucking love playing this out after 3 months but the fact that are hardly any ecstatically enhanced people out here in Vienna out there to get the full effect is saddening – Come on Wien get on one feel this! book em book em Market or Enix ! feel the plaintive horns at 6.00 wish it would go on forever…. top buzz nice1 bring that e sunshine indoors somebody please if you are in london you can hear them at one of the great tayos tracksuit parties along with david rodigan and amazing dj on the rise roxanne roll who puts on parties with vim and is a top selector parties details here apparently there’s free beer !!

check their chart on phonica and buy buy buy its all fresh, all popping with stuff like the new Model 500 which track ‘Huesca’ will make you fly e lightened or not and that’s for another post of misty eyed waffling about the godfathers ….

speaking of acid house spirit keepers of the flame …
check Body Hammer taking their name from the
japanese cyber punk classic tetsuo- the body hammer rough raw vintage acid from Joe Hart from bloc weekend and if im not mistaken a man I have had the great pleasure to dj and natter with about classic tunes – Paul Purgas from Bristol a very passionate acid man who has productions under the name Empty Set he djed a very basic Campari Safari in the bar of the croft with Duncan from Underscore a brilliant crew of techno and dubstep promoters from Bristol who are sorely missed! i really regret not going to more of their parties as they had killer line ups and im only just getting back in touch with classic techno….


check this terrible flyer that was knocked up by me in two minutes ! real underscore parties were however amazing with people like bodycode kode 9 sleeparchive scion and an early supporter of dubstep heavy weight pinch – who played a party in Vienna recently
