SMS takeover.

We're very much looking forward to tomorrow night at our new basement, Q Cavern and we're happy to have Seb from Stop Making Sense lending a hand. In anticipation of tomorrow, he's put together a little playlist of the stuff he's been playing out, from hypnotic electronic to inappropriate house, we're sure you'll enjoy it.

See you soon. x

Joe- Studio Power ON


I think Joe is a vastly underrated producer. I'm a huge fan of the way his samples are so crass and seem cheaply placed over the track like some 90s clip art. I guess that's his main skill though his tracks are sparse and he manages to balance them so well that the end result is totally fantastic. Check out all his shit.

 Mike Dunn-Phreaky MF

 Smutty house vocals really do it for me, if a track is talking about how someone is going to shit on another whilst holding their large ____ I instantly buy it up.... I once played this record at one of the NQs street parties at about 6pm, apparently there were young children running around.....I feel.....ashamed.

 Discrete unit- Shake Your Body Down

This came out a couple of years ago.... I still can’t get enough of the bass hook.

 Kassim Mosse- untitled A

 I am a regular attendant to the night meandyou and those guys really got me switched on to the workshop crew. I saw Kassim Mosse play live this summer it was awesome, I’m pretty sure I didn’t say a word throughout his whole set. This is a stunning opus of a track, full on journey.

 Marcel Fengler- Friction

 I used to be really into all this Ostgut style techno and made frequently pilgrimages to Berlin. I remember when I first started going out an dancing to 'harder' music how I used to just get super locked into the groove and get fixated on all the subtle changes in the tracks……this isn’t the track I wanted to post…. But I think it’s a pretty decent example of what I’m getting at.

SMS has been going for just over 5 years now. In that time we've played host to guests from Pangaea to Mike Simmonetti to ...and you will know us by the trail of dead. I think that mix of those artists pretty much well sums up the night, it's meant to be fun with an anything goes music policy that doesn’t take it's self all too seriously. To celebrate our 5th birthday we are having belated a party next Thursday (22nd) at Common.  As we are  turning 5 we plan to have cake, party bags and fancy dress. You are all invited with open arms.
