  1. Moving to London. I wanna DJ...

    Try these websites: www.bedrock.org.uk/socialise www.the-end.co.uk www.fabric-london.com www.club-junktion.com (my night ) There are plenty of big nights and an abundance of smaller 'parties' (where you may have more luck in getting gigs) Lots of competition aswell
  2. Firstly thanks to all that made it down to Junktion in February. We really appreciate all those that helped out considering the change of venue problems that we encountered! Great sets by Marc Hasler, John Ioannou, Paul Louth and Martin McNeill. Junktion celebrates it’s second birthday on the 12th of March at Infinity with Kenny Hawkes, Will Saul and resident Martin McNeill. Kenny Hawkes DJ/Producer Kenny Hawkes has been a pioneering influence on the British dance scene for over a decade. As a kid growing up in Brighton, Kenny soaked up the sounds of Motown, Ska, Hip Hop, Dub Reggae. As soon as he hit 18 he disappeared off to Southern Europe, where he spent endless evenings developing his DJ skills by playing at some of Europe's most notorious after hours clubs. He returned home in the early 90s, skint and unknown. One morning whilst lounging about and listening to the radio, he stumbled across a Pirate Radio Station called "Girls FM" that played Downbeat, Dub, Soul, Techno and Garage. At that time the station only had one DJ, but they were looking for more. It wasn't long before Kenny joined up and moved to London with the station - which he ended up managing - and in no time "Girls FM" was attracting up to a million listeners a month. Due to Kenny's natural grasp of quality dance music, "Girls FM" became the most legendary underground dance music station that London had ever heard. It soon boasted 22 DJs, one of whom was "Luke Solomon" (of current 'Freaks' fame) who soon became Kenny's greatest friend and fellow resident at London's longest running mid-week house club, "Space" at Bar Rumba. Space closed its doors for the final time in February 2002, after seven brilliant years as London's tour de force within the global house community. Kenny and Luke prided themselves on bringing into the fold the world's greatest spinners - such as Harvey, Stacey Pullen, Tom Middleton, DJ Heather, Francois Kevorkian, DJ Sneak, Pete Heller, Mark Farina, Cajmere and Derrick Carter - where they would play for a pint, a packet of crisps and their cab fare home. The sets would offer a diverse and rich musical palette. One week there'd be Kenny Carpenter playing a classic New York style Garage and Disco set, the next Andy Weatherall would be dropping Dub Reggae right through to Hypnotic Tech-Funk. Space is sorely missed but keep your eyes peeled for one off parties Kenny throws in association with Luke & Justin Harris's imprint, Music For Freaks. Will Saul Will Saul is A&R for Simple Records, a label that embraces breakbeat, deep house, electro, techno and broken beat. With its 7th release, Simple is one year old (feb 04). Will's wide ranging influences and eclectic DJing techniques have enabled him to develop a unique style fusing broken beats of all tempos. His debut single 'Fast Lane' and follow up 'Cliff' won acclaim from breakbeat, electronica and house artists. Remixed by Fink and Infusion, they were praised for their strong groove and subtle production. Will's third 12" on Simple will be 'Malfunction' remixed by Meat Katie and out in April. He has signed his single 'Swoop', featuring vocals from the legendary Ursula Rucker, to Ali B's label Air (due out in May/June). Will recently remixed Evil 9 for Marine Parade alongside label mates Precision Cuts and has produced a track exclusively for Meat Katie's Bedrock Breaks compilation. Will has built up an underground following for the series of Early & Late DJ mixes circulated from '99 to '01 and has recorded guest mixes for Radio 1 and Capital. He's DJed across the UK and Europe, recently playing Simple Records nights at Fabric and Flex, Vienna with visits to Urban Gorilla, Tangled and Wildstyle in Nurenberg scheduled for February and a trip to Japan & Australia organized for April. He will be resident alongside Rennie Pilgrem & Meat Katie at TCR & W9Y's HUM club for 2004 and regular guest at Air @ Rhythm Factory. April sees Will return with spacey, experimental grooves on 'Malfunction', that includes a remix from Meat Katie. Precision Cuts will release their second single on Simple in March. Will's debut album is scheduled for release in November and will take in a variety of tempo's and styles, from downtempo/dub to glitchy house, electro and deep breaks. Sideshow will be releasing 3 limited edition EP's (the first will surface in May) over the course of 2004 - Laurent Garnier will be one of the 3 remixers for this project.
