sat 27/06/09 - Sven Weisemann & Don Williams "mojuba/a.r.t.less night"

Mojuba and a.r.t.less label boss Don Williams brings the motor city vibe and infected mojuba sound to the street's of Manchester and is joined by man of the moment, Sven Weisemann.

A string of super deep, ultra smooth buttered up, chicago/detroit rooted limited releases from the Mojuba imprint, and some utterly dance-floor destroying, dark tech-edged club tools and valuable re-issues from the hyper limited a.r.tless label, has kept our appetites wet whilst we prepare to welcome the label head Honcho Don Williams a.k.a Thomas Wendel. Limted releases such as "detroit red/black" series for a.r.t.less and kicking off the styrax label bandwagon with "1st bouquet" have helped highlight Don's uncomprimising production talent and revered soulful skills on the 1's and 2's.

Sven Weiseman, whilst a relatively young chap, has been on our radar for a long time now. An irrefutable production style, akin to no other, has had us licking our lips in anticipation with releases on "meanwhile" "styrax" alongside outstanding tracks on "mojuba" and most recently "shove ep" on "a.r.t.less" its clear to see the boy has talent. Sven's been busy in the studio as of late; on the back of some seriously lucious and creative 7" releases on 'essays' he has been, churning out some unique remixes, turning his efforts to classics such as Freund der Familie's 'Sark' on a limited 10" as well as rework of "deep passion" on Styrax's "In loving Memory 4:4" series, alongside remixes for "apple pips", "dessous" and "vidab".

Get set to hear the chicago, the unusual and right down dirty; the gentle, beautiful and sumptuous house; the acid the dub and detroit techno soul.

see you down the front!

Deep :-)

Big up yoself!

Big shouts have to go out to Marcel Fengler and the seldom felt crew for providing the tunes on a special night for me last saturday and for creating a brilliant atmosphere in the process.

Shouts have to also go out to chris from mnml ssgs who made the long trip to manchester from aberystwyth in wales and provided some intelligent conversation for me and marcel along with one too many beers! ( and make sure you get over to his website!)

Finally, anyone in the london area on june 12th ill be making the trip with chris to the bleep43 party with omar s and a uk debut for donato dozzy, should be a corker! check the link here

sat 23/05/09 - Erosion presents - Marcel Fengler w/ Seldom Felt

Erosion welcome Marcel Fengler, the outstanding Berghain resident to the MCR, to spin some wax on what promises to be a special night. Marcel's popularity, along with other berghain residents including marcel dettmann, ben klock and norman nodge, has sharply risen over the last year and were glad to be inviting him here.With residencies at the mighty Tresor and of course the Berghain, marcel's credentials are there for all to see.

As an integral component in the rise of the berlin illuminati, his revered skills have taken him around the world, and on sat 23/05/09, to manchester. Marcel lists his influences ranging from NWA, GangSTARR to techno and house lumieres robert hood, kenny larkin and ron trent; Tastes reflected in his two fantastic releases for the fantastic OSTGUT TON label and his remix of "gowentgone" on VIDAB which received high acclaim (

Expect some deep deriving techno to sooth the ears.„It is important to me that music tells kind of a story using varied styles from all eras. That’s why I favour to build my sets up, then down again. It has to be varied and it has to snake through the night in waves.“

Joining Marcel will be the highly sought after, highly anonymous SELDOM FELT. Following a series of 5 anonymous releases of the deepest darkest electronic 12", seldom felt arrive in manchester amidst a plethora of hype. With no repress, no info, and no names available, their production styles have altered subastantially acroos 5 devastating 12"'s. Style's vary from post-basic channel dub to twisted chord driven techno, reminiscent of Redshape and taking in elements of everthing in between. No5 takes on Byron Stingily's stone cold classic 'You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)', but instead of a Gay Chicago house backing, the anonymous editor has opted for a tuff EBM/techno version done to exacting Music Box standards that's just left us for dead. Dynamite!expect some deep and wonderful antics. DEEP!
tickets available at:, Piccadilly and Eastern Bloc Records!
