Lazy Habits ‘Bulletin’ [Run 'N' Jump Records] – Released 19th November

DIGITAL 29th October
PHYSICAL 19th November

8 piece London Hip-Hop collective, Lazy Habits, release their first single ‘Bulletin’ out on Run ‘n’ Jump Records this November. This lead track is taken from their forthcoming eponymous album due out towards the beginning of December.

Like its name sake, ‘Bulletin’ grabs your attention from the start with frenetic brass and up-beat drums accompanying MC Lazy’s vocals taking centre stage. The song builds to panoramic proportions with cinematic strings working through the gaps lifting the live hip-hop beat. Rolling through, understated, beneath the boisterous exterior, an emotive Rhodes-Bass line loops through with its subtle stealth drawing you in deeper into the music.

Influenced by New Orleans jazz, soul and the Big Bands of the 50’s, Lazy Habits blast their sound into the 21st Century with hard hitting beats and slick lyrics about modern British culture and urban life. The band describes their sound as:

“Beats, Rhymes and Brass of the highest caliber.”

Formed in 2007 and originally the brainchild of one MC, the Hackney based outfit now stand as a full eight piece band whose onstage energy is a colossal live experience which has been sincerely replicated in their latest single.

Having notched up shows at legendary venues such as Shepherd’s Bush Empire, The Roundhouse, KOKO; supporting the likes of Mos Def, Soulwax, The Specials, Bonobo, Chali 2Na (Jurrasic5) and Beardyman, Lazy Habits have proven their worth on stage. Alongside Lazy Habits’ memorable live performances at Glastonbury, Bestival, Secret Garden Party and Electric Picnic the band are fast becoming a formidable and renowned international live act.

Lazy Habits’ debut, self-released EP ‘On the Wagon’ put the boys on taste-maker Huw Stephens’ radar, whilst also becoming respected within the underground scene, selling out on pre-orders alone. Their follow up single ‘Even Out’ introduced them to a wider audience, as it was used on commercially released cinema and TV productions both UK and Europe wide. It culminated in the band being invited onto BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends, Craig Charles’ BBC 6 Music show, Soccer AM and contribute to an unforgettable sold out Jazz Café performance.

This is a song which truly is the sum of its parts; that in isolation no one but Lazy Habits would imagine could work, but their creativity and craftsmanship has forged something beautiful, frantic and unique.

THE SUN: ‘’The best house party your parents never wanted you to have.’’

BBC: ‘’Lazy Habits prove they are anything but on stage”

Due to unforseen and impossible circumstances Martyn has had to cancel his appearance at Bloc as part of In:Motion on the 25th November.

However, to replace him we welcome Artwork. Along with Skream and Benga Artwork is the third member of the mighty Magnetic Man, who have been dubbed the first half step super group. He also part owned the prestigious Big Apple records in Croydon, one of London´s surburbs which saw garage mutate into dubstep.

As Magnetic Man they perform using three computers, one playing drum samples, one playing basses and the third playing leads and samples. Artwork controls the master laptop, to which the other two are synchronised via Midi. Their sets usually consist of a mix of original tracks produced together, and live remixes of Benga and Skream´s tracks. Artwork will be playing alongside Joker, Nathan Fake, James Holden, 2562 plus many more.

 

As the English winter dictates the end of the UK festival season, Motion’s solid structure resumes play indoors letting the spirit of the summer blossom into the winter months.

Nearing the calibre of festival status in scale, sound and energy, Motion continue their expansion into yet more areas of the huge sprawling skate park, with warrens leading to multiple separate spaces, all hosting their own unique party.  Their ever-increasing loyal fan base and extensive line-ups are being pushed even further into the double warehouse, as well as outside in the car park, which comes equipped with food court, heated seating area and photo-booth. With each turn you can get more lost in Motion’s wondrous world of entertainment and outstanding music.

November sees the Field Day team take the magic of the festival and transport it through the night to the raw and vast confines of Bristol’s Motion.  After delivering a sterling line-up this summer in London’s Victoria Park, they hand pick the best for their In:Motion date, where we can witness DJ sets from Friendly FiresErol Alkan and Glaswegian electro whizz kid Hudson Mohawke.

Over the last few years, The BLOC Weekend annual festival has become a compulsory destination for electronic music fans.  No other UK festival so vigorously and variously reaps the vanguard of underground dance music past and present quite like they do. Last year they invited down dirty bird Claude Vonstroke and Andrew Weather to fill Motion’s Tunnel, with his unique and compelling musical selection. Destined to better themselves from last year, they bring dubstep prodigy Joker, hot off the heels of releasing his album ‘The Vision’ and Border Community Nathan Fake, for a festival sized line-up in an inner city club.

Sven Vath’s Cocoon are to techno what light is to fire. They continue to touch thousands of people across every continent with their inimitable brand and unfaltering shows. With weekly parties at Amnesia during the Ibiza season, Love Family Park, Green & Blue festivals and Cocoon in the Park, Cocoon are becoming synonymous with huge scaling events with immaculate production. One of Europe’s leading labels, they bring German duo Tiefschwarz alongside Shonkyand Dyed Soundorom from the French contingent, all heading to the West Country to bring the magic of Cocoon to Bristol for one night only.

Futureboogie join up with the prestigious Red Bull Music Academy and exude a festival feel with live shows from Crazy P and Henrik Schwarz, plus a back room hosted by London’s disco mafiaHorse Meat Disco. Ramping things up on the production side are Just Jack, who for their Halloween show bring aerial artists, art installations, costume and make up stalls. Interactive character actors will be roaming and terrorising all night throughout the club, on the floor and hanging from the ceiling. The Gunpowder Plot on the 5th November brings an explosion of action with a firework display, bonfire and circus performers to add more flames to the fire.

Bristol In Motion continues to stage live music events throughout the winter months from October through to the end of December. Offering the finest in musical and performing talent from across the world to touch your heart, body and soul – eyes and ears.

The start of the UK party season this year is led by Bristol’s pioneering party starters In:Motion. A series of incredible events striking hot on the heels of last year’s triumphant first season, which tore a hole in the skate park come club Motion, spread across five rooms indoors and out. 2011 brings artists from all musical persuasions capturing everyone from the heroes of the scene to the rising stars and bringing all manner of brands from the electronic music community together to embrace all dimensions of the underground dance movement.

The peerless Hessle Audio make their debut for the In:Motion series on 15th October, standing head and shoulders above the rest with performances from Jamie XX and Jamie Woon. Jamie XX’s movements out of his band, The XX to DJ and remix artist have been well received with heavyweights such as Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, Florence and The Machine, and Canadian rap giant Drake. Jamie also released one of the anthems of the summer on NMBRs in the form of ‘Far Nearer’. Since Jamie Woon came onto the scene everyone has been scrabbling for the opportunity to see him live. His album debut ‘Mirror Writing’ saw him strike a terrific balance between convention and subversion, producing dubstep infused commercial tracks, alongside equally enigmatic and enchanting productions. Both of these artists are a rare sight in a club setting, but Bristol In:Motion’s festival atmosphere found within numerous intimate and vast spaces is an apt fit for these two sonic masters.

Bugged Out return for 2011 on the opening weekend on October 8th, bringing Jamie Jones, now a household name for a new generation of house and techno fans through his Hot Natured guise and Hot Creations label. It will have already been an amazing week for L-Vis 1990 & the Neon Dream who will have just released their staggering new album ‘Neon Dreams’ which features Para One, Teki Latex and Julio Bashmore. L-Vis 1990 (aka James Connolly) a London-based DJ and producer co-founded the groundbreaking Night Slugs imprint with Bok Bok. Also kicking things off in the first week is Fake Blood aka Theo Keating aka Touché. Under his many aliases, the man like Keating has produced some classics over the years remixing the likes of Underworld, Hot Chip & UNKLE. He’s become somewhat of a Bugged Out! family member and will bring his bass heavy bangers to the floor.  

Sharing the bill on opening weekend are firm friends and In:Motion family favourites Hospitality, who bring Danny Byrd, High Contrast and MJ Cole amongst others. Bringing together bass heavy music, an electrifying atmosphere and second to none production, Hospitality have grown into true titans of the scene, consistently bringing the best in show-stopping DJs from the constantly evolving drum & bass scene to a hugely faithful crowd. This summer they represented at the Parklife festival, ripped apart their own stage at Lovebox and set things alight at Global Gathering. D&B is back in Bristol, its spiritual home.

Sven Vath’s Cocoon, are to techno what light is to fire. They continue to touch thousands of people across every continent with their inimitable brand and unfaltering show. This December they will bring it to Bristol for the first time. The now iconic Tiefschwarz headline the show, exemplifying their playful talents for putting everything from electro to tech-house and slithering minimal under the scope and turning out consistently compelling sets.

Bristol’s own Just Jack bring Soul Clap on the 29th October to headline their highly acclaimed Halloween party The Gunpowder Plot which will be complete with circus acts and fireworks. The trend-setting American East coast duo leapt to fame through their relationship to the esteemed Wolf + Lamb family. This year saw them bridge new levels of notoriety through their special DJ Kicks album.

Moving back a little to November and BBC Radio 1’s Toddla T will make the crossing from Sheffield counties to blow the roof of Motion once again. Toddla T has firmly established himself in the last few years with production and heavyweight remixes for the likes of Roots Manuva, Hot Chip, Gorillaz and Tinchy Stryder and more, plus a DJ rep so strong that it bagged him a regular Radio 1 show.

Festival brands BLOC will join heavyweights Run and Bristol favourites Futureboogie, who bring the infamous Henrik Schwarz, ensuring there is something for every musical taste on show.

Add to that the incredible production team and a venue that verges on festival status with five rooms of varying calibre, and In:Motion’s second year is set to be bigger and better than anything else on the radar. 2011 sees improved sound engineering and facilities such as food court and photo booth.
