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.

Artwork to replace Martyn when Bloc comes to In:Motion

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 17, 2011 by dk

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.

Get Lost 4 Mixed by Damian Lazarus

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 7, 2011 by dk

In a stellar year for the Crosstown Rebels that saw them become the most groundbreaking underground dance music label in the world, surpassing even their own expectations their illustrious founder and musical director Damian Lazarus picks up the baton for their infamous Get Lost series and delivers a perceptive fusion of future dancefloor classics, illuminating the reason they came to be the most important label of the moment and unveiling the next chapter of their story.

Following in the wake of Dinky and Jamie Jones Get Lost albums, and due to public demand the series is reignited with Get Lost´s ringmaster Damian Lazarus. Now a notorious 17 hour event at Miami’s WMC that features the whole army of Rebels artists (21 artists in 2011), Lazarus now captures some of its magic on CD.

Damian Lazarus is a visionary, a caped crusader for underground music with an eye for detail and an ear for true talent. Since cutting his teeth as music editor at Dazed & Confused, to his days as A&R at legendary London imprint City Rockers spotting the likes of Felix Da Housecat and Tiga, through to more recently introducing Seth Troxler, Jamie Jones and Art Department to the world via his Crosstown Rebels imprint, Lazarus has continually shaped the face of underground dance music as we know it.

The fourth episode of Get Lost while typically broody and eclectic steers heavily into Lazarus’ dancefloor nature, unraveling a hybrid blend of dubby, rumbling cuts touching on everything from deep house to UK garage, techno to futuristic bassline mayhem that each journey into the spirit of his enigmatic brood of artists. Lazarus makes characteristically calculated risks with his track selection, a largely unknown collection of exclusive records that give foresight into the next generation of Rebel artists, introducing an arsenal of fresh faces in Left, Fosky, and new Toronto talents Nitin and Iranian Amirali (with an album coming next year on the label). He also calls upon old label friends Dinky and Nico Purman and some peers from his past in Avey Tare of Animal Collective, dOP offshoot Aquarius Heaven, Ostgut Ton’s Dana Ruh and Caribou’s Daphni, fresh from their remix of Art Department.

Featuring ten exclusive tracks including an unheard track from 2011’s biggest newcomers, Art Department who give a hint at their future evolution in a grand vocal climax. Delving into his own future material as an accapella over Berlin cult figure Acid Pauli, set to release an album on Nicolas Jaar’s label later this summer), Lazarus carefully balances the experimental with the insightful in this intricately woven mix.

Damian gave birth to his own imprint, Crosstown Rebels 8 years ago with the intention of nurturing a younger generation of talent and bringing them to the forefront of global consciousness. The label has gone since beyond its intentions, releasing the debut album from Jamie Jones, one of the first records from Seth Troxler and in 2011 three of the best dance albums of the year came from the Rebels camp; Maceo Plex; Deniz Kurtel; and Art Department. Damian’s Rebel umbrella now encompasses a global booking agency, various sublabels, and even a film series about the group of musical misfits.

“I’m so excited to relaunch the Get Lost mix cd series. The album has so many highlights for me and it seems to get better and better with each listen – and believe me I´ve heard it many times. I have taken a lot of risks in introducing unknown artists in the selection and I am confident some of these guys will be household names before long. I am very proud of the Get Lost series and I think this session, number 4, will mark a beginning of the next level for our music.” Damian Lazarus

The collection of unreleased tracks made exclusively for the album will also be available as a limited double vinyl package. Damian Lazarus and his Crosstown Rebels vessel are true vehicles of reinvention and Get Lost 4 is their finest voyage.
