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.

Bristol In Motion
The new jewel in Bristol’s crown, Motion re-opens its doors in October for another season of the highly-charged and hugely loved ‘In:Motion’ series. Still reeling from the success of last year’s sell-out autumn events, 2011 sees them come back bigger, better, stronger, louder with the hottest electronic acts of the moment gracing the infamous Bristol ramp skate-park, turned rave haven.
2010 marked the birth of the In:Motion series when the Bristol based promoter team joined forces with the countries most esteemed music brands, bringing with them the finest talent of the underground music scene to the West Country. Creating a succession of unparalleled parties, each one delivered a mind-blowing night of sensational sounds and immaculate production placing In:Motion firmly on the musical map. As a slew of fresh and talented artists continue to bubble up from the beating heart of Bristol such as Julio Bashmore, Redlight, Eats Everything, Baobinga, Waifs & Strays, Bowski, just the last year alone, the city continues to draw attention and attract producers and DJs from outside. Everyone wants a piece of the sounds and skills that are evolving in the West Country’s musical.
Bristol’s renowned musical heritage, coupled with the strongest brands in the country has resulted in some of the most highly innovative and respected musical programming out there. Those who’ve devastated the Motion dance-floor last year, triumphantly return: Hospitality, BLOC, Annie Mac Presents, Bugged Out!, Run and local heavy-hitting party starters Shit The Bed and Just Jack who collectively brought with them High Contrast, Claude Vonstroke, Simian Mobile Disco, Jamie Jones, DMZ and Joy Orbison. Joining the In:Motion fold for the first time bringing more interstellar acts to the table throughout the autumn season, we welcome Hessle Audio, FWD Rinse, Field Day Night, Jamie XX, local boys Futureboogie XL, Blowpop and Invisible Circus.
As a venue Motion is carving itself out to be one of the most exciting and unrivalled clubs around. Now nearing festival-calibre this year, they expand into yet more areas of the huge sprawling skate park creating a warren of separate spaces all hosting their own unique party. The raw confines bore witness last year to the magic of man of the moment Seth Troxler in the main Skate Park, Roska and Untold in the Tunnel, Tensanke lighting things up in The Cave with the addition of the stunning Waterside Terrace providing the perfect backdrop. Now with things 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, you can let yourself get lost in Motion’s wondrous world of entertainment and outstanding music.

Seconds out, round 2. Further announcements and line-ups to follow.
Musician Gil Scott-Heron, who helped lay the groundwork for rap by fusing minimalistic percussion, political expression and spoken-word poetry on songs such as “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised,” died Friday at age 62.
A friend, Doris C. Nolan, who answered the telephone listed for his Manhattan recording company, said he died in the afternoon at St. Luke’s Hospital after becoming sick upon returning from a European trip.
“We’re all sort of shattered,” she said.
Scott-Heron’s influence on rap was such that he sometimes was referred to as the Godfather of Rap, a title he rejected.
“If there was any individual initiative that I was responsible for it might have been that there was music in certain poems of mine, with complete progression and repeating `hooks,’ which made them more like songs than just recitations with percussion,” he wrote in the introduction to his 1990 collection of poems, “Now and Then.”(billboard report)
