The Horse & Groom
Friday 13th February
9 - 4

| Upstairs
Tom Rio
Simon K
Chris Alexander

| Downstairs
ColouringIn (Live)
Neil Thornton
Jeff Ctrl Alt Delete

If you like the music that gets posted on this blog then come and check out the party. This Friday sees the inaugural 'Rut'. We're taking over The Horse & Groom pub on Curtain Road in Shoreditch, London .

Upstairs there will be the deep house and deep techno. We have Tom Rio coming down from Bristol to headline upstairs. He runs Bristol's leading undergound house and techno night Just Jack who recently celebrated their 3rd birthday with a legendary 10 hour party at Motion Skate Park in Bristol with among others Tiefschwarz and Todd Tejre. Tom has held his own alongside some great DJs including Argy, Matthius Tanzmann, Damian Lazarus, Simon Baker, Claude Von Stroke, M.A.N.D.Y. and even Sven Vath. Kicking off the night upstairs will be Chris Alexander. Chris plays a beautiful mix of ethereal deep house and techno. His taste is vinyl puts most to shame. And finishing off upstairs will be me.

Downstairs we'll have a good mix of disco (old and new), belaerica house and leftfield electronica hosted Lasermagnetic's Neil Thornton. Neil and Lasermagnetic are established as London clubbing royality beacuse of their outstanding promotion of disco and the like. We also have Jeff Ctrl Alt Delete who will push the boundaries even further. And vump. friend ColouringIn will be compering performing their unique techno-pop nonsense live.

If you haven't been to The Horse & Groom before it's a proper old school boozer with a big sound system. Intimate and out of the way of the masses.

The party kicks off at 9pm and carries on until 4am and is free all night.

John Tedaja.

Happy New Year! One of my New Year resolutions is to post more tracks, more often and to that end I have an exclusive quick fire interview with Detroit techno legend John Tedaja.

His beautiful Fabric 44 mix is realeased next Monday. John has had an insanely varied musical career and you can hear the weight of his sublime musical talent in his often seminal techno production, re-edits and DJ mixes. The tracks on this Fabric mix are subtly edited and mixed with beautiful precision. Real deep techno. I really didn't realise what a fan of John's label Palette I was until hearing it. The first track Dave Huges' 'Let's Do It' was one of my favourite tracks in Autumn.

Definitely get hold of this mix.

Who is your biggest Musical Influence?
Probably Kraftwerk since they've been around my whole life.

Which club had the best soundsystem you've ever played on?
Two places that come to mind are Yellow in Tokyo (which has closed it's doors) and Fabric.
[I was lucky enough to see Cobbleston Jazz, Pier Bucci and Damien Lazarus at various Real Groove parties at Yellow last year before it shut - the soundsystem was unreal. John actually did a Palette mix for Real Groves this time last year.]

Where is the best atmosphere at a party, ever?
That's difficult to answer. Anywhere that's comfortable to be in where great music is playing and people are having fun.

Which of your fellow DJs do you most enjoy to hear play?
Daniel Bell and Marc Schneider.

What is your favourite album that you listen to to unwind?
At the moment Fennesz "Black Sea".

Which is your most significant Palette release?
Palette 39 "The End Of It All"

What for you was the most seminal 80's hip-hop track?
Probably Africa Bambaataa & The Soulsonic Force "Planet Rock."

What was the heaviest techno track of 2008?
Byetone "Plastic Star"

What's your favourite current label; apart from your own?
Raster Noton

Who is the biggest unsung hero of Detroit?
Daniel Bell
