'By Popular Demand...'


Charismatic Yorkshire-man, resident of the longest weekly UK clubnight, Back2Basics; Chemical Brother's tour DJ for over ten years. James Holroyd has more quality references than a Roget's thesaurus. At the start of this year, we were treated to a new angle as James released the future-classic (and sure to be highly sought after) Begin 01. With a strong muscianship throughout and with a definite 'coastal' slant, the restrained tempo was a surprise to those following his uptempo 'bogg-beat' style; a surprise we were extremely happy with nonetheless! With a LOT more top music ready in the pipeline, and a DJ schedule that still makes most of us weep, there is simply no let up to this man's prowess. And so who better with to kick off our monthly social than the master of future eclecticism, who's record choices always intrigue yet never fail to move the dancefloor and a DJ who, after years of absorbing influences from all corners of the dance music spectrum, turns his hand to making music and becomes and all-star producer in the process! We welcome, James Holyord aka Boggy aka Begin! Blast off!


Rufdug is well seasoned in the party business.Originally cutting his teeth on the Sydney party scene, Ruffy ran a series of very underground, mushroom-fueled psychedelic disco parties. Alongside this he released a number of records under a variety of guises AND held down some prestigious resedencies in the city. Then, luckily for us here in Manchester, a Visa issue meant he had to leave Australia and return to his home here. Thank God! After blowing us away after just a few appearences (see: Detroit Public Radio, Ordererly Wayward & Electric Elephant) we were again treated to the rare surprise of having a pro DJ who was also a fledging record produer! Rufdug's "Dirty", released on Popular People's Front in 2009 became a massive clubland smash, and was featured in the top 'end of year lists' by many a respected DJ. Ruf Kutz#1 followed as a self-released, limited twelve inch and sold out very quickly (now fetching big cash) and as you read this Ruf Kutz #2 - The Sydney Disco Mafia EP has dropped and is causing massive disco destruction! Again, a natural selection for our first party - expect a sun-blushed selection of psychedelic disco, peakin' vibrations and underground bombs!
