My name is Ruaraid Achilleos, AKA Coolhandluke, a Slyfly and S.O.M.E. DJ for many moons now and avid reader of this blog. I am now going to start a regular post of my own on here full of tunes that make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside and perhaps even some which turn the stomach. As its Monday (just about) I have decided to name this inaugural post the spectacularly imaginative: ‘Music On Monday’. . .
First up I've posted a little number of my own limited production skills. Full 320k alton road mashed potato. Bisto anyone?

After seeing Mark Ronson recently, I was reminded of this 90’s gem by Organized Konfusion ft the evergreen Q-Tip, from their 1994 album ‘Stress: The Extinction Agenda’. A fine slice of summer straight from the golden age.

Gella, nominated this year for Breakthrough Producer at Breakspoll, is carving out a niche for himself merging elements of breaks and garage. ‘Twinkle‘, featuring excellent vocal accompaniment from the legendry MC Spyda, is the standout track, although Baobinga must also take credit for this top trumps remix. Take a bow son, take a bow.

Next up is a spot of bigroom dubs from The Boogaloo Crew. Calling All Dancers finds its way into every set I play and is arguably their biggest tune to date. At the other end of the spectrum, ‘Rising Sun’ has a gorgeously seductive summery vibe and gets better and better with every listen.

After a trial separation of nearly three years since ‘Road to Zion’ (2007), Nas and Damian Marley are reportedly ‘giving it another go‘. ‘As We Enter’ is an early breakthrough. Remixes have inevitably followed from the likes of TC and Foamo, but Rack N’Ruin’s dnb offering is absolutely top draw.

Here is sneak preview of ZINC’s new track 'Nexx' due to be released later this month. Unfortunately this copy goes straight into the drop without the standard minimal build but you get the idea. Future club banger.

Tomb Crew have been consistently producing quality dubstep for the last couple of years but this remix of the French Fries 'Predador' is a jump into the unknown, a dancehall/carnival wobble and a prophetic vision perhaps. . .

And finally. . .Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs! Not sure where they’ve come from but I love everything they have released so far. The variety of their productions is staggering. Electro, techno, and garage tunes can all be found on their myspace. Go on, ‘av a butchers.

Excess All Areas
After running many warehouse parties and club nights across London we thought it was about time to find a home for our infamous nights and we’re delighted to tell you; we’ve found it! The Driver.
It’s a place where anything can happen. With its three floors of stunningly designed rooms and roof terrace with spectacular views, this hidden boutique venue in Kings Cross is the place to be.
The outside of the venue has a living garden that grows vertically from the foundations and transforms the venue into something that would rival Alice’s Wonderland.
Over the next few months we will be bringing you a number of themed night time adventures hosted by the delightful and mysterious Lady Excess who will be guiding you through your very own imaginarium.
With the help of Painted by Pixies, a face painting team who will be on hand to create one magical night. So Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls:
Dress to Excess and be who you want to be. Sad or happy clowns, fallen burlesque girls, lion tamers and freak show freaks will always be welcome here at our Funhouse.
Each month we will be inviting various promoters who share the same mentality as us to take our ‘The Guest Boudoir’.
For our launch we have invited no other than Gueststar who have been responsible for a number of killer parties at various venues across London
Roof top cocktail party from 8pm – join us for special Excess All Areas designed cocktail reception.
