FIREC013LP Linkwood – Expressions

Monday, February 23rd, 2015

Ah, yes! Finally some real flavors to sink our teeth into.

The nose is truly a work of art. First the classic peaty smoke but so distinctly understated. Confident in it’s maturity. The salty pineapple citrus is next coupled with a refined lemon-lime toffee tartness. And finally a whiff of fresh cucumber sprinkled with the loveliest of white pepper. Oh, yes. This is what we’ve been waiting for!

The creamy mouthfeel is laced with intense black peppers but then mellows out to give you honey, lemon and chocolate with a dash of tobacco.

The long peppery finish is fruity with a hint of limestone.

These are the classic flavours that made Linkwood one of the top distilleries and Expressions should be on your list of malts to try before you die.

We’ve reach the grand old age of 4 and we’re gonna celebrate it in the only way we know; good music, good vibe, and raw talent.

We’d like to thank everyone that has come to our gigs over these past four years and especially in the last 12 months. Things have gone from strength to strength. We have some exciting shows lined up and can’t wait to share the details with you sharpish.

As always we have hand selected producers we hold in high regard and have wanted to get them on for a while now. Giddy with excitement to have both Death on the Balcony and Scott Thatmanmonkz Moncrieff on the same lineup.

Here’s to another year… :D

The elusive DJ and producer known as Linkwood is a reticent talent: eschewing as much hype as is possible, he prefers to work in the shadows, conveying all that need be said through his emotive musical offerings. With organic and musical house releases that defy definition on imprints like Firecracker (who released Vakula’s fantastic ‘You’ve Never Been To Konotop…’) and Shevchenko, you know it is always of an assured quality.

With his much anticipated second album “Expressions” dropping on Firecracker in late January just before our party, we celebrate the release alongside special guest Amir Alexander. Spinning since ’93 and producing since ’98, Amir has the Chicago pedigree running deep through him…we’ve even heard rumours of a Linkwood b2b Amir Alexander set to end the night?!

Support comes from Astral Industries’ Ario and Black Boogie’s Nick Gabriel playing house, techno and left of centre electronic selections. Advance ticket purchase recommended to guarantee entry – see you at Basing House!!!

Diynamic Radio Show December 2014 by Zaki

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

On occasion of Diynamic’s latest release, the Various Artist EP series called “Four To The Floor”, we’d like to introduce to you the participating artists, by letting them mix a Diynamic Radio Show.

On to the second half of the fourth episode London-based Zaki then offers ‘Heart Never Lies’, a crisp and twitchy bit of house with very studiously crafted bass notes that are rich and musical. The track sort of suspends you in-between galaxies as stars and spaceships shoot past you.
Enjoy his Radio Show!

Italoboyz
Alexi Delano

Italoboyz & the Superfcition gang goes back to Basing house for another night of modern electronic twisted beats, sharing the decks tonight with a true legend of electronic music: Alexi Delano.

Alexi Delano dwells in the perfect balance between shiny minimalism and dark vivacious techno. With more than two decades on stage he has been able to combine different roots and facets of the contemporary music scale.

Born in Chile, raised in Sweden and later adopted by New York, Alexi together with fellow Swedes such as Adam Beyer, Cari Lekebusch and Jesper Dahlback became part of the Swedish wave of electronic music producers of the mid 90’s. Moving from Scandinavia to New York influenced him to combine the heavy compressed Swedish sound with the vibrancy of the creative music scene of Brooklyn.

Throughout his time in the music industry, Alexi has produced five albums and released countless amount of records on established labels such as the historic SVEK imprint, Plus 8, Minus, Drumcode, H-Production and many more.
With a production and DJ style that sways neatly between house and techno, he is consistently able to re-invent himself with each new release.

Simultaneously Delano has been experimenting beyond the border of the classic 4/4 beat producing original pieces for short movies and fashion projects.
Also in 2011 he was nominated for the Swedish Music Award “P3 Guld” an alternative to the Swedish Grammy.

Now in 2014 Alexi Delano finalized his 6th project “The Art Of Collaboration” for the Swedish Techno label H-productions as well as re-launching his own record label AD Limited whilst continue to write original pieces for a string of projects.

It’s all in a day’s work for Mr. Delano. He‘s a man who seems to be made of music. Hosts of the night, Superfiction’s own Italoboyz. Since arriving to London at the dawn of the new millennium, the duo have become renowned for their unique sound, with energy and flair that
traverses their DJ sets and productions alike. With an ethos based around movement and evolution, Marco Donato and Federico Marton never strive to distance
themselves from their rich musical heritage. You’ve got to keep up or be left behind and these boys don’t just roll with the punches, they pack them. Their journey together began in 2002, however their individual passages into music began almost two decades prior. “During the 80s an electronic movement started arriving in Italy” tells Donato, “It was underground, it was new but at the same time it was evolving. It got me”. Through this new found love of electronic music, it wasn’t long before the duo’s rite of passage translated into record collecting. With a taste that holds no bounds and an obsessive passion for crate digging, we can still hear these eclectic influences thirty years later. Multifarious genres, from funk to jazz, hip hop to classical, and a whole spectrum of house, have all influenced a sound unique to Italoboyz.

It was their mutual immersion and passion for music that led to a fascination with the musical process. No longer just appreciating records at face value, a process of discovery and exploration began. Every aspect of a track would be meticulously analysed, the antithesis of a then organic process of reproduction; playing along to a piece would lead to hours of improvisation, an aspect which would later influence their future endeavours. “What we look for in music is timelessness. When a track truly transcends the era in which it was made, it really becomes an entity of it’s own”. This appreciation of music as objective, rather than subjective, was an early indication that the pair planned on sticking around.

Focussing on musicality, integrity and longevity, the duo have released to universal acclaim. Never the types to sit around, they have released over 100 tracks, between original tracks, collaborations and remixes, with a career just tipping the decade mark. After almost a decade of releases, 2012 saw the launch of Superfiction, an outfit created by the boyz in collaboration with Blind Minded, focussing on creating a movement rather than just a label. Representing their main source of musical output as well as becoming a platform for collaborations and emerging talent, it’s another insight into why the ‘Boyz are tastemakers and trendsetters in their own right.

They have never allowed their sound to be constrained and it shows. With such a high demand for their idiosyncratic approach to DJ’ing, Italoboyz have seen themselves play to crowds in the hundreds of thousands in all five continents.

This is an event you cannot miss!
