Guy GerberThis summer Guy Gerber was at the very heart of Pacha’s reinvention with his Wisdom of the Glove Night. The Supplement Facts boss also had time to release a brand new and free full length, as well as recently recording an Essential Mix for Radio 1.

Across the two hour mix he threaded together many different moods and grooves from his own studio, as well as stuff from labels like secretdundaze, Tsuba, Defected, Watergate and producers including Kassem Mosse, Carl Craig, Dixon, TiNi and Dinky. It’s a classy mix as you would expect from someone of his standing.

Rustie – Essential Mix (BBC Radio 1 — 7th April 2012)(Stream)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 19, 2012 by dk

With the release of his debut album Glass Swords last year, Rustie went from being an underground treasure in the UK to the face of an entire musical movement. When asking what a Rustie song sounds like, no explanation will contain less then 6 genres referenced and 5 emotions evoked. And it is this complex composition of sounds that has led critics to place Rustie at the forefront of the “maximalist” movement in electronic music.

Prince Fatty presents Hollie Cook in Dub(Preview)

Mr Bongo is proud to announce the next instalment from the wonderful Hollie Cook. ‘Hollie Cook in Dub’ is a hypnotising adaptation of her enormously well received eponymous debut album.

Re-working Miss Cook’s tracks in a dub style, the legendary Prince Fatty adds heavy bass and reverb texture to Hollie’s beautiful, captivating vocals. Excitably the record features three new tracks including ‘For Me You Are Dub’ – a ska version of an old Andrews Sisters’ classic; ‘And The Beat Goes On’ – a brand new, heavy dub cover of the The Whispers’ disco banger; and ‘Baby’ – a new revamp of this hugely requested anthem, in collaboration with The Shoes. Prince Fatty has incredibly added further layers to Hollie’s cover of Shangri-Las’ ‘(Remember) Walkin’ In The Sand’ which she effortlessly transformed from a dark emotive song to one filled with a flavour of hope.

The dub versions showcase real tape echoes, heavy spring reverbs and alternate instrumental elements such as melodica, percussion and horns. All the dubs were mixed live in Prince Fatty’s studio in the same Rub a Dub style as was made famous in 70s Jamaica by King Tubby and others, i.e with fingers, late night vibes and re-arranged with a razor blade.

Hollie Cook was born and bred in West London in a household dominated by music – with Sex Pistol Paul Cook as her dad, music was always around – and she gravitated to the sounds of Marc Bolan, David Bowie and The Cure.

Entering professional acting, singing and modelling at a young age, Hollie soon rejected her performance arts schooling for a musical path truer to her influences. Family friend and Slits singer Ari Up persuaded Hollie to sing backing vocals for a new EP ‘Revenge of the Killer Slits’, which she followed by ditching school to join the band on a six week tour.

The summer of 2011 saw the release of her self-titled debut album which received critical acclaim from many and resulted in being on an array of ‘Top Albums of 2011’ lists including The Word, The Mirror and Rough Trade. Hollie’s self-coined ‘tropical pop’ sound stems from her passion for reggae singers Janet Kay and Phyllis Dillon combined with classic 60s girl groups. Singles ‘Body Beat’, ‘That Very Night’ and ‘Milk & Honey’ made waves gaining heavy support from BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music, BBC 1Xtra, XFM, Kiss, Choice FM, culminating in a live Maida Vale session for Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and a Later… With Jools Holland performance on BBC 2.

Hollie’s live band played Big Chill, V, Festibelly, One Love, Jazz Cafe in 2011. This year see’s Hollie gearing up for the release of an album of new material and a 20-date tour, with notable performances confirmed at Bestival, Camp Bestival, The Vintage Festival. The summer will see Hollie play to her biggest crowd in Manchester to support The Stone Roses in their historical comeback tour in the summer.
