Finally a good take on Blurred Lines and a well crefted Remix. Esentrik delivers as usual.
Secret Garden Party was off the hook! We were only supposed to play for an hour, but the band before us finished early, and the next act was late… so in the end we got to play for over 90 mins! This required an on the fly reworking of the set (we’d pre-planned this one) but it all turned out fine thankfully.
The tent we were playing in was fantastic, it looked amazing and because it was Friday night and the start of the festival the crowd were there to get down. Started off pretty quiet with about 200 people but it quickly filled and by the end the tent was absolutely packed out, 1000+ people easy!
Thanks to everyone who came to see us play, the response was amazing and we’re still buzzing about it… massive thanks goes to Mr Man Make Music, DJ Sketchy who was running the Valley of Antics stage over the weekend… and a fantastic job he did too. We only hope we can make the return visit next year.
Unfortunately we couldn’t record the set, but we’ll record it asap and get it up on the blog. In the meantime check out some of the pics!
We haven’t posted a tune in a while, so it’s good to come back with a couple funky little tracks from our good friends Fuzzbox based in Jersey, a beautiful island actually closer to France than the UK! Fuzzbox are Joe Pope and Colin Moore, pure edit heads, mixing their own flavour into old funk tracks, demonstrated perfectly by these two tracks!
First up it’s a soulful reworking of Joe Frazier’s “My Love”, I love the Northern Soul vibe and can’t wait to play this one out…[audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/mylove-fuzzbox-edit-320knock-out-drop.mp3]
Our second offering is a cheeky little number, “Play With Fire” (Yard Boy Ten) with pinch of bmore, a splash of dancehall and a whole lot of Goodgroove![audio:http://www.chromemusic.de/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/playwithfire-fuzzbox-fucked-edit.mp3]
You can catch the Fuzzbox djs @ Chambala festival in Canada this August (if you’re lucky enough to be there) otherwise follow the links and show some fuzzy love!
This year is flying by… June already?!? It’s like I blinked and it’s 4 months later!
Anyway, our guest for this month is MAN MAKE MUSIC from London village, these guys definitely know how to get a party started so get down early and grab a mix CD (the’ve have been dissapearing as quick as we can make them!)
Don’t forget you can catch the Yum Yum residents downstairs @ Walrus every Friday night from 9pm FREE ENTRY, it’s been going off on Fridays so get yourself down there asap!
This looks like big time fun! Six new Bmore sure shots by Emynd, Tittsworth, Dave Nada and co.
Following a great night last month with Not:FX (Munich) the next Yum Yum Leicester will be Saturday April 4th @ Superfly.
This month will see Tand Williams (Yum Yum Duisburg) bring some noise and go back to back with Leicester resident Medley. Not:FX really set the bar last time round, but I’m sure Herr Williams will survive Manchester and deliver the goods. Check out Tand’s latest mix for Duisburg’s 3rd Birthday last month… it’s a goodie.
Doors open at 11pm so make sure you get down early and grab Yum Yum UK Vol2 exclusive mix CD mixed by Tand Williams, Chrome, Medly and Steve Ill Kinevil & Robzilla, limited numbers to give away!
