The Blank Generation Radio Mix by billbrewster
"I’m 37, male, and live in Sheffield in the north of England (once famous for Steel and Electronic Pop). I now play other people’s records for a living, and make a few of my own. Once upon a time I studied English, with a view to becoming a teacher. I also studied – at great length – LSD, music and the art of the compilation tape (not necessarily at the same time). Eventually, music and LSD convinced me teaching was for elderly men, with beards, and an unusual passion for corduroy."

What a gent.
Riotous Rockers formed after a chance meeting on the dance floor of Fabric Room One in the summer of 2003. Unbeknown to Pete and Boggy they would both meet again in their home town of Nottingham a few months later to discover they shared a mutual love of all things Electro, Pop, Disco, and Rave.
The DJ partnership was truly formed when they were given the chance to play at Nottingham's most hedonistic night, Liars Club.
Mixing up as many styles as they could lay their hands on, they complimented promoter Ricky Haleys inspired bookings (which over the years has seen the likes of Franz Ferdinand, Scissors Sisters, Bloc Party and The Klaxons play long before they became household names).
Riotous Rockers soon became a regular fixture at the club.
Word of these explosive DJ sets travelled fast, and the Rockers found regular guest slots at the cream of U.K club land, playing regularly for people like: Bugged Out, Fabric, Stealth, Together, Chibuku & Wax:On.
Work took the pair further a field, throughout Europe and beyond, playing in; Ibiza, New York, Milan, Paris, Amsterdam, and Barcelona.
T B/R welcomes the Rockers, who play upstairs on the 30th.

SWAG & POPULAR PEOPLE’S FRONT PRESENTS...
Saturday, 24 April 2010
2020Soundsystem was started as a new way of playing mixing live instruments with electronics by Ralph Lawson, original DJ at the legendary Back To Basics club in Leeds, and Danny 'dubble d' Ward.
Tired of a jaded club scene they sought a different way to entertain and excite. By weaving live instruments into Lawsons DJ set, they transformed the clubbing experience into something new by giving the best of both worlds: the continuity and diversity of a DJ mix with the raw energy and excitement of seeing a live band.
Manchester’s Danny Ward loves drums. It’s more of an obsession really. He can talk for hours about legendary jazz drummers like Art Blakey, Philly Joe Jones, and Billy Higgins, even though he has never seen any of them play live.
In the early 90s when every club kid pined to be a DJ, Ward played percussion at club nights such as Back To Basics in Leeds, where he showed that live drums from creative hands could actually improve a DJ’s groove.
It was in Leeds that he first met DJ Ralph Lawson, who released two nu jazz albums by Ward on his label 2020 Vision.
When Lawson needed a drummer for his band 20:20 Soundsystem, he didn’t have to look far as Ward had already played for groups like Chapter And The Verse, Gilad Atzmon, Jim Mullen, Rae & Christian, AIM, and The Pharcyde.
As Ward got deeper into house music, he created Moodymanc as an outlet for his deep and soulful house productions, and it is this alias that may make Ward a star of the dance music world yet...

MC Guru, whose real name was Keith Elam, of Gangstarr fame - releasing 6 super influencial albums between 1989 and 2003 - has died aged 43.
Elam suffered a cardiac arrest in February after surgery to treat his cancer and briefly lapsed into a coma. He died on Monday morning.
A statement released by his PR company contained a letter written by Guru in his final days:
"I have suffered with this illness for over a year," he wrote. "I have exhausted all medical options."
"I write this with tears in my eyes, not of sorrow but of joy for what a wonderful life I have enjoyed and how many great people I have had the pleasure of meeting."
Bow your heads. A legend has left the building.
This THURSDAY TB/SS bangs out a tribute set to Guru from 10-11pm, followed by the as listed Culture Shock and Friends event.

Mark Farina - 'Percussion Mix' by Elite Music Management
Shortly after Mark befriended Derrick Carter in 1988 at a record store in Chicago, his passion for House music, and sharing it with the world, exploded.
Mark experimented with a deeper style, dropping De La Soul, disco classics and other stuff that wasn’t being played in the main rooms of nightclubs. While exploring his love for the purist forms of House Music, Mark developed his trademark style: Mushroom Jazz; acid jazz infused with the West Coast’s jazzy, organic productions along with urban beats.
Fans embraced Mark’s downtempo style so much that he started a weekly Mushroom Jazz club night in San Francisco with Patty Ryan. In 3 short years, the club established a fanatical, cult-like following for Farina and the Mushroom Jazz sound. When the doors closed, Farina continued the tradition by releasing a series of Cds, “Mushroom Jazz”.
Since then, Mark has been traveling the globe performing 100s of shows, to over one million club goers, a year. His House sets take fans on journeys to the jazzy side of Chicago House mixed San Fran style. Some of these sets have been known to last up to 8 hours. And sometimes you’ll find Mark playing in two different rooms at the same party, showcasing his range of rocking the big room sound to the uber-chill.
Farina’s taste making skills continue to turn the heads of crowds worldwide and consistently draw new fans to his style of chunky–funky rhythms and deep underground house. URB, MUZIK and BPM Magazines have all had him on their Top DJ’s In The World lists.
The different faces of Farina appear on the various CDs released on OM Records. Mushroom Jazz series showcases a hip-hop, sub-groove, jazzy, dubby and downtempo vibe. Seasons, a critically acclaimed House mix.
Mark has been voted as one of the top DJ's in the world by URB, MUZIK and BPM Magazines.

JIMMY EDGAR, Warp's multifaceted creative prodigy, was discovered in the depths of Detroit's electronic scene.
Jimmy's insane programming skills and ultra-melodic synth touches have been displayed in his previous two Warp EPs taking things to another level.
Combining dark, sexy R&B with his signature lascivious sound, he has created a collection of razor sharp electro pop tunes made to grind to. This is one sweaty, sultry sounding dude...
Check out his MYSPACE for some big deep monsters of tracks, and hit that big orange PLAY button below for a lovely Seth Troxler remix of Jimmy Edgar's 'Funktion'.

Tonight also doubles as the release party for his deep and sexy tune 'B THERE', released on label GLASSTABLE.
