Lineup and Details for Drop the Mustard on Fri 21st September 2012
This season at DTM we plan some of ambitious and exciting parties to date. Our first celebrates our move to Gorilla, where we curate the first electronic line-up to grace the new Manchester venue. Situated under a central Manchester railway viaduct, Gorilla combines a cutting edge raw warehouse space with a bohemian chic bar.
Before the runaway success of club hit Criticize which exploded everywhere at the beginning of the year from Annie Macs Radio 1 show to being featured on Beats in Space Best of 2010 Sam Watts had been DJing, putting on parties and working hard in his studio for a number of years in his home town of Brighton.
Locally Sam is known more for the schtumm! parties which he runs with long time friend and DJ partner Neal Lewis which have brought many exciting acts (often for their debut show) to Brighton over the years, from Radio Slave to mulletover and Tensnake to the Idjut Boys.
Club nights aside his studio work began more intensely when working with Thomas Gandey in Cagedbaby, which he toured with playing live in 2008 and co-write a live version of the tour which performed several shows across the globe including Buenos Aires, Istanbul, Barcelona, Rockness, Glastonbury and the O2 Festival in Hyde Park. Sam & Tom regularly still work together.
With a strong drive to be creative and improve on each project Sam has been putting long hard hours in his studio this year and already remixed Wax Motif & Neoteric, Hercules & Love Affair, The 2 Bears and Retro/Grade. As a follow up to Criticize, Maxxi Soundsystem has been signed to Nervous Records new imprint Nürvous which is dedicated to the sounds of old house music (EP out this summer). Currently working with Miami man of the moment Danny Daze on new material and London vocalist Royston theres some really exciting new music about to drop.
EJECA may be based on the outskirts of the nu-house music mecca of Belfast, however his musical roots have been firmly planted from an early age being brought up on 90s garage house. Experimenting with many genres like disco, garage, deep house and techno his trademark vocal driven emotive sound flows in all of his productions. 2012 will see him release on AUS Music, Saints & Sonnets, W&O Street Tracks, Future Classic and more . With support on BBC Radio and from luminaries as diverse as Erol Alkan to Jackmaster to Sasha, the right heads are taking notice, its time you did too.
