Geddes presents mulletover: The Story So Far 2004-2012

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on March 26, 2012 by E.N.

London is saturated with clubs so for one to keep growing takes something special. mulletover celebrate 8 years with a special CD debut release to mark their journey to date mixed by programmer, creator and resident DJ Geddes.

Visitors to London are often looking for a party. No other event has made such a dramatic mark on the UK’s capital than mulletover. Maybe not the first event to take place in a warehouse, but it was the one that led the way to stage events in rotating spaces. This led to an underground culture of secret venues and the reinvigoration of many derelict spaces in East London.

Nowadays mulletover pulls crowds of 3000 people and sell out shows in durations akin to festival fever. Regularly asked to host at internationally renowned events, this year alone they can be found at BLOC festivals in London and Hideout in Croatia. Past endeavours include Lovebox and a season residency at We Love.., Ibiza. Now globally recognized as one of the leading cutting edge brands in dance music, they are still growing every day.

As other brands would look to capitalize, mulletover are turning things on their head. From next year they will only host two events in their London home, a move to concentrate on quality rather than quantity. As every other event in London seems to be held in secret venues with poor production and facilities, mulletover want to focus on the experience. Their move to large purpose-built venues such as the O2 and Pulse has scaled this DIY grass roots project into an international event. This was all possible due to the pride and attention to detail. Geddes has the ear of an engineer and an impeccable standard for sound. His consistency ensures every artist on the bill complements each other and he has closed nearly every mulletover event to date, while Rob Star has an acute talent for event production and combined they ensure that everyone who has attended won’t forget it.

Geddes has handpicked a selection of tracks that are representative of the sound of mulletover over the past 8 years including classics from Liberty City and Nina Kravitz as well as forward thinking diverse cuts from SCB(Scuba) and Maya Jane ColesHuxley and new signings to murmurSonogama. A special 8 page booklet will accompany the release with each page a description of each year and the release will be given away as part of the ticket for the 8th Birthday event. Released on Geddes’ cult murmur label as a follow up to his solo ‘Inner City Man’ EP, this release unveils a more driving and darker side than he is known for.

mulletover was started on a Saturday night in 2004 by Stuart Geddes and Rob Star in a now defunct and highly illegal space called R House. Geddes was born and bred in the capital and had frequented some of the best night spots since way before he should have thanks to a sister in dance music. Bored by the current predicament and overt control of super clubs, brands and DJs and ultimately wanting to experiment and bring something new to the table, he joined forces with Rob Star and the duo never looked back. Rob Star had flirted in dance music circles also, involved with the much hyped but short lived club Home and he is now involved with some of London’s most renowned dance music events such as Eastern Electrics festival, Circo Loco, A Night With… and his own ‘Star’ series of venues.

Their journey to this point has not always been easy with many a venue shut down by police and towing their own line despite London’s ever evolving tastes. But they never compromised and acts such as Andrew Weatherall, Dixon, Greg Wilson and Carl Craig make rare appearances and those that have born witness to mulletover know they are certain to leave with the best memories.

About
In March 2004 I appeared at the Time Machine night in Nottingham, which was held at The Social. I was still very much finding my feet, having only started up again a few months beforehand, and this was one of my first handful of bookings following my comeback. It was a night run by Soul Mekanik (Kelvin Andrews and Danny Spencer), who, together with Daniel Donnachie, were the resident DJ’s.

Daniel put me up that night, and we sat up into the early hours listening to records, a few of which he was kind enough to record to CD for me. One of these was the instrumental of a PM Dawn track called ‘Gotta Be…Movin’ On Up’, which was built around the unmistakeable killer groove of ‘Just An Illusion’ by Imagination.

I can’t recall if it was a few weeks, or a few months later, but I remember driving to collect my son from Primary School listening to the CD that Daniel had done for me – I can see exactly where I was, approaching the traffic lights, about to turn right onto Queens Drive in Liverpool, where the school was, when in my minds ear I could hear Missy Elliot’s ‘Work It’ rap fitting hand in glove on top of that groove.

When I got back home I tried it out and, just as I’d envisaged, it was a perfect marriage, so I began to glue it all together. I utilized Jay-Z’s ‘Reasonable Doubt’ during the intro and the break, whilst slipping in Missy Elliot’s rap section from Tweet’s ‘Oops (Oh My)’ between the parts I’d used from ‘Work It’. A sprinkle of Sinnamon, and some suitably sensual sighs and moans further peppered up proceedings, whilst Marvin Gaye’s ‘Sexual Healing’ puts in a brief cameo via the line ‘oh baby now let’s get down tonight’ and a few ‘ooohs’.

The resulting mash-up became something of a signature track for me, especially big with the girls, and was twice pressed on ‘DJ only’ 12” – in 2006, then again in 2008. I still get asked for it now, and played it most recently over in Croatia at the Garden Festival.

I originally listed the artist name as Dawn Elliot & Co, and it was later pressed on limited vinyl as Young Dog Alien (this is how it appears in the tracklisting of my Radio 1 Essential Mix from 2009), however, here I’ve settled on its most recognisable elements, Imagination & Missy Elliot.

I later put together a further version that features the vocal of ‘Just An Illusion’ before Missy’s rap kicks in. It was available here for a period last year – I’ll re-upload at some point.

After being named iTunes Dance Album of 2009, Future Disco returns with their third episode armed with a fresh round of modern disco bullets to fire up the day, and keep it alight well into the night.
 
Future Disco has become the staple choice for all music fans seeking a fresh and contemporary selection of rare and favoured tracks, indelibly mapping a new trend like no other. Volume 3 takes in hot creations from some of the freshest artists of the moment including Lindstrom & Christabelle, Greg Wilson, The Revenge, Holy Ghost and Todd Terje.
 
The Future Disco ethos is to bring together the very best in a burgeoning modern disco scene, no matter your musical persuasion capturing the imagination of the listener, and made for indulging in at any time. Following on from the debut ‘Future Disco – A Guide to 21st Century Disco’ and subsequent ‘The Extended Future Disco Mix’, ‘City Heat’ is a prelude to the summer, suitably timed as the current disco movement engulfs cities globally such as London, New York and Sydney. The passion and energy of ‘City Heat’ engages with an audience that have (or will soon become) smitten with the soundtrack of disco.
 
The entire mix is once again re-edited and carefully mixed by Sean Brosnan, who has created a completely unique excursion joining the musical dots between disco of the past, present and future.
 
‘Future Disco Volume 3 City Heat’ features unreleased and exclusive material such as Greg Wilson’s version of Ilija Rudman ‘Call Me Tonight’ and the Tensnake Remix of Johny Denell ‘Jam Hot’. Captivating treats appear from the notorious Crazy P in the form of the divine Hot Toddy mix of ‘Never Gonna Reach Me’, and Lindstrom & Christabelle’sinspirational ‘Baby Can’t Stop,’ ensuing their highly praised collaborative album project.
 
Todd Terje heats things up with his classic disco record, ‘Eurodans’ and two tracks feature from new school hero, The Revenge, recently celebrated for his versatility and wide appeal across the house, techno and the disco worlds. Disco’s newest don, Tensnake again appears as he has on each Future Disco episode so far, and new artists such as Nick Chacona, Bonar Bradberry, and Sean Brosnan himself also deliver precious gems to the mix.
 
The CD is available in mixed and unmixed format, and sleeve notes have been written by the stunning vocalist, Kathy Diamond, whose vocal is one of many highlights in the mix. Photography of the London disco scene is also included in the booklet courtesy of Darrell Berry (www.darrell-berry.com).
 
Since the first episode in 2008, Future Disco has evolved info a radio show and a series of global events, currently holding ongoing residencies at Ministry of Sound London, with Carl Cox at Space Ibiza and 360 Dubai. Also staging regular events from Amsterdam to Singapore, the sound of Future Disco is spreading to distant shores and some of the best clubs in the world.
 
Future Disco has led the way as a new movement took hold of its London base. It continues to offer a candid and likeable outlook to the otherwise tedious alternatives, weaving all curious listeners through an exhilarating sonic journey.
