Horse Meat Disco Live @ Boiler Room




We at BITD love a little disco its in our blood heard these guys couple of years ago and they are going from strength to strength. Recently saw them on channel 4 ‘s party night and became hooked im sure this set will have you groovin.

Acclaimed London DJ collective HORSE MEAT DISCO now into their eighth year, have continued to lead the way with packed residencies at their HQ at The Eagle in London’s Vauxhall, Lux in Lisbon and with the Tape organisation in Berlin. Inspired by the music and inclusive ethos of New York’s club scene during the ‘70s and ‘80s, the collective have garnered a unique reputation for amazing parties and unmatchable sets, the quartet of DJs each mixing their own individual quality blend of disco juice with all manner of dancefloor fillers: be it punk funk, italo, house, electric bangers or plain old oddities! As well as shows every weekend through Europe and the UK Horse Meat Disco are trailblazing the disco heat to lovers from across the globe. Following a recent sell-out festival tour with DFA in Australia and world-beating appearances everywhere including top fashion house Chanel the team are a party syndicate to be reckoned with! Their regular appearances at festivals Glastonbury, Bestival and Lovebox have also spread to world leading festivals including Vivid and Furture Music Festival in Australia, Electric Elephant, PS1 & San Francisco Pride.
They have a hugely successful compilation series on K7! Records of which the fourth will hit stores in November plus a much sought after vinyl-only secret edit series for those in the know. For the last year they have been in the studio and are set to unleash the inner workings of their musical minds on the world! by the halcyon days of New York nightlife including Mancuso’s Loft, Nicky Siano’s Gallery and late lamented DJ Adam Goldstone, Horse Meat Disco was started in 2003 by DJs James Hillard (ex-Nuphonic) and Jim Stanton, long-time lynchpin of Jockey Slut magazine. From early parties in London’s Chinatown, Horse Meat took up their famed weekly residency in Eagle London in Vauxhall and, joined by DJs Filthy Luka (Luke Howard, ex- Queer Nation) and Severino (CODEX), quickly built a reputation for fantastic parties and high quality disco sets.

EJECA Horizons EP


Every year electronic music has its trends that quickly come and go, but one of 2012′s house music trends looks like it could be here to stay.

90s style garage house has seen a massive revival this year thanks to the likes of Bicep and their collaborator on the massive ‘You‘, Ejeca. The latter’s new Horizon EP on Needwant has vibes in spades, and in its title track – one of the tunes of the year.

Clocking in at just under seven minutes, ‘Horizon’ builds up slowly with some soft synths before eventually exploding into ‘woo!’ samples and ravey style stabs just after the 2:30 mark. A long breakdown follows that lets the track catch its breath before building up into a frenzy again.

There’s certainly nothing new about ‘Horizon’ so to speak, but given the aforementioned trend for old school sounding tunes at the moment, it just works. It’s also lead to a diverse range of DJs playing it out, including Radio 1′s Skream & Benga – better known for their chest rattling dubstep.

The other two cuts are slightly more restrained in comparison to the opener, but still high in quality.

‘Dazed’ is a darker, slower affair that leans towards a more industrial techno sound, while ‘See Through You’ picks up the pace again, blending a cut-up UKG style vocal with a warm, mesmeric deep house beat.

The latter two tracks certainly prove Ejeca has more in his locker than simply replicating sounds from a bygone era, and his short but promising discography shows he’s definitely a name to keep a close eye on.

Vintage Classics DIY DISCS

diyBITD bring you a a history lesson of the in my opinion are the GODFATHERS of Deep House. We at BITD have very fond memories in 2009 we had the pleasure of DIY play at our night.

The DiY Sound System was one of Britain‘s first house sound systems. The group “divided their activities between free parties and legal club nights, acting as a bridge between counter-culture and the mainstream”.

It was created in Nottingham in 1989 as a reaction against the growing number of rave promoters whose bias was towards their own financial enrichment, rather than the joy of their party-goers. They wished to form a cohesive, collective, political front against the prevailing anti-rave legislation that was beginning to come into force at that time. This became more marked around the time of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994, with DiY playing a key role in the largest illegal rave ever put on at Castlemorton Common Festival prior to the Bill and a constant stream of illegal, outdoor parties (often at travellers’ sites, quarries and disused airfields) all over the country. Simon Reynolds writes that DiY threw “free parties at abandoned airfields or on hilltops, drawing a mixed crowd of urban ravers and crusty road warriors”.[2]

DiY also worked successfully in the realm of legitimate club nights, with their “Bounce” night touring the country as well as being a staple of Nottingham’s night life. Its popularity, connected to its lack of concern for dress codes and its non-exploitation of its loyal clubbers, coupled with its very particular form of deep, soulful, often minimal house music, led to it being recognised as one of the top ten club nights in Britain by The Times.

In 1993, they also began their own record label, Strictly 4 Groovers, which later became known as DiY discs. This is still running and releasing house music and the primary DJs – Simon DK, Digs and Woosh – still play at various nights in the U.K.,Europe and America.

One of the best mixes we have heard this year! @DetroitSwindle mixing for Dirtcast! Proper #deephouse! (Give it a share your friends will thank you)

Annual+Mud+Day+Celebration+Lets+Kids+Get+Dirty+4bSwi1IR5Bnl2012 is almost over so its time to look back at few bits….and this is one mix we absolutely adore.

Yet another team that have soared to the skys in the past year (so just like MCDE we can’t afford them either) Detroit Swindle have been killing it with what we can only describe as a future-retro take on Deep House remembering its US Garage Dub roots to great extent, whatever it is if your’e in trouble behind the decks then Detroit Swindle will get you out of it sharpish!

Bottom line is you need this in your life, its already cost us a fortune on Beatport just before Xmas (bad idea, wifes not happy…..she wanted Chanel No 5 and ended up with Eu de Chav by Brittany Spears due to my overspending).

So anyway here’s the mix

And here’s the tracklist:

01. Max Graef – Life On Mars
02. Punky Blaster – Missin (Art Of Tones Remix)
03. And.ID – Black Mamba
04. Fred Everything – What You Say
05. Midnight Special – Steady One
06. Noir – Satisfied (House Dub)
07. Timmy P – What You Sayin’
08. Eddie Leader, Agnes – Keep On Movin’ (Agnes Booty Mix)
09. Detroit Swindle – Guess What
10. Trikk – Jointly (Brooklyn Mix)
11. Paolo Rocco – Move Body Move Forward
12. Detroit Swindle – John Doe
13. Medlar – Knockard Pearl (Detroit Swindle remix)

Happy New Year you lot!
