So here at Back In The Dark we got to thinking after the Wolf Music night in March who could we bring down to blow everyone away? It didn’t take long to make our minds up who so we set about trying to secure the artist we wanted? Que a few phone calls and everything fell into place so it is with great pleasure that we can announce Milton Jackson to play our next party on May 25th Milton has been on our radar for a long time and his bi-monthly podcast on Soundcloud has over 45’000 followers!! What more could you want for a bank holiday Saturday and you even get a extra day to get over it!!
Also joining us for this amazing party is two young up and coming local DJ’s who we have seen out and wanted to get involved Ben Empson & Lee Williams. Lee’s own brand Terminal will also be hosting the back room to do there own thing with there special unique brand of music and partying style.
Milton Jackson got the house music bug aged 18 after receiving an MPC2000 for his birthday. A year later he released his first EP on Stevie Sole’s Tronicsole, picked up by Roger Sanchez for a Mixmag compilation. 3 more EPs for Tronicsole followed and an album for Glasgow Underground entitled ‘The Bionic Boy’ in 2001.
Bionic Boy received plaudits from Tom Middleton, Laurent Garnier and Ashley Beadle. Jockey Slut called Milton ‘the most exciting thing to happen to UK house music’ and awarded the album 5 stars. Bionic Boy spawned some memorable singles; Sunlight even got a review in NME. ‘Dimensional’ tickled Romanthony’s feathers so much he asked to remix it. After the success of Bionic Boy and the accompanying live tour, EPs were completed for the likes of Black Vinyl, Bear Trax (Milton’s own label) and Omid 16B’s Alola. Milton even worked with a young Mylo on their ‘Pretty Boys’ project.
In 2006 a new relationship was formed with Jimpster’s Freerange and saw collaborations with fellow deep house don Shur-i-kan. The 2 released ‘I Want It’ and ‘Special Powers’ (BBC Dance single of the month) to great acclaim. From there EPs followed for the likes of Tsuba, Crack & Speed, Silver Network and Icon.
2007 saw the release of ‘Cycles’, an epic melodic track. It was voted by 200,000 Buzzin Fly radio listeners as one of their top 10 tracks of the year. A remix for Groove Armada’s Andy Cato started to cement Milton’s reputation as someone who consistently provides interesting, melodic, spaced out deep house.
From here Milton started engaged in a frantic DJ schedule worldwide. Venues and countries visited included Womb Tokyo, Goa Madrid, 360 Dubai, Cocoon Frankfurt, Tresor Berlin, Pacha Ibiza, Warehouse 702 Tokyo, Anzu Brazil, Barzilay Tel Aviv and a very special live set at the Sonar Festival in front of 7000 people.
In 2008 Milton’s most successful single to date ‘Ghosts In My Machines’ was released. A firm Miami WMC favourite this track was released as part of Freerange’s 100th release. The biggest selling deep house track of 2008/9 on Beatport, it went on to win a Beatport Award for Best Deep House Track with Milton coming 3rd in the producer contest behind Jimpster and Dennis Ferrer – heady company indeed.
With the success of ‘Ghosts In My Machines’ Freerange were keen for Milton to complete an album. Milton went on to record arguably his most seminal work to date: “Crash”. Uncut Magazine called Crash “’Darkly sophisticated, tech-edged deep house, adding judicious samples of exotica and sci-fi soundtracks to laudably fresh, clean and moodily funky effect“. DJ Magazine said Crash ‘’Reinvents house music for the future’ / ‘where electronic house melts into the darker machinations of the techno spectrum…”
Recently Milton has remixed Recloose for Carl Craig’s Planet E and turned in stellar mixes for Z Records, 8 Bit and Jef K’s hit “In My System” on Silver Network.
A new collaboration with Munich’s SHOW-B “Pattern Select” saw the pair release a critically acclaimed EP on Delusions Of Grandeur and a remix for Huxley’s imprint “Saints & Sonnets”

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! http://youtu.be/kerULmdCtfY.Inspired 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.
Out next week to coinside with the Delusions of Grandeur party at Fabric, with #sessionvictim and #normdeplume spinning alongside the guvnor himself this promises to be a weekend that will set the standard in a huge way (fuck knows how we are gonna keep up if this is the standard)
Its officially 2013 peeps, and it gonna be a good one for #deephouse
Jimpster’s These Times proved to be a successful release, garnering love and support from right across the board. B side track Can’t Stop Loving sits proudly at
No.12 in RA’s top 50 tracks for October whilst These Times got airings on Amé‘s Boiler Room set alongside support from the likes of Mano Le Tough, Bicep and Roman Flügel. Dixon is also a fan declaring that he wished he’d signed it for
Innervisions and offering to do a re-edit.
Here we’re very proud to present the fruits of his labour, as well as stunning remixes
from Manuel Tur and Kyodai. Dixon keeps the original vibe intact but reduces the groove perfectly and extends the arrangement for a deep, epic vocal version aimed squarely at the dancefloor. Manuel goes into the abyss with a darker, hypnotic
feeling, pushing Jinadu’s vocals to the fore and working up a stripped back groove punctuated with ring modulated chime FX. Finally the Kyodai brothers deliver their own brilliant spin, going heavier on the pounding subs and afro-tech groove.

Merry Xmas one and all!
We were up till 3am the night before Xmas Eve making Xmas cookies and needed to have a little party while we did, so yet again Boiler Room came to the rescue with this little video from 6 months ago.
Motor City Drum Ensemble came to our attention with the acclaimed Raw Cuts series pretty much at the same time we started Back In The Dark in 2010.
We were then treated to a live set by him at Southport Weekender (when he took the roof off the Beat bar) as Mr Kev Beadle yet again successfully booked the future, and things have soared career wise for MCDE ever since (to the point we actually cant afford him yet so this video will have to do :)).
If at some point you’re staying in one evening over Xmas, do as we did…fullscreen on the laptop and up loud thru the hifi, its almost as if hes there! Just dont have a go at him for lighting up a fag behind the decks.
MERRY XMAS ONE AND ALL FROM BACK IN THE DARK!
