DMX KREW - (Rephlex/Breakin/Gigolo/Ghostly Int...ernational)
What is there to say about DMX Krew? Too much. One of the original Braindance innovators Ed’s 80’s influenced records on Rephlex and his own imprint Breakin’ Records are now classics with their tongue in cheek nods to B-Boy Electro body rockers, Miami Bass, Synth Pop, and early Rave energy.
2004 saw a stylistic turning point for Edmx with the anonymous release on Rephlex entitled “The Collapse Of The Wave Function”. An analogue sounding fusion of Grime, Dancehall, and Electro which would signal a new era and an onslaught of releases that would be more experimental and purely electronic sounding than the previously perfected 80’s sound he had become known for, a triumph of reinvention and reinvigoration. From Drexciyan Electro excursions, full on Acid workouts, EBM bangers, BBC Radiophonic Workshop inspired experiments, Braindance Techno, Library Music come Funk come Disco voyages, with many others styles beyond and between and all done with his own unique sound and style.
Anybody who has witnessed Edmx’s live sets at Bangface, Bloc Weekender, Rephlex parties etc will know how hyped up he gets things going. Armed with a TB 303, Akai MPC1000, Laptop, Vocals, Vocoders, FX and his own Visuals DMX Krew will be presenting a unique live Electro/Braindance show you will be talking about for years to come!

HOLY MOUNTAIN cinema room
Anybody who was at the first Body Melt will know how very special and very different this room is! To begin with it's actually in a functioning cinema, an absolute feature of the night, definitely not just another “backroom” at a club, last time we had Richard Dawson playing the bassoon at the same time Mike Bong was spinning overdriven Japanese psych mentalists High Rise! Inspired by the Alexander Jodorowsky film of the same name, The Holy Mountain room aims to take you on a musical journey that is as far out, revelatory, hallucinogenic, visionary as the great mans film. With Jazzfinger Soundsystem,Phippertronische, Capo Ultra and Usurper Pancake Manhattan at the realms of the mountain, guiding you upwards and onwards through the mist, towards greater heights.
Visuals in both rooms provided by Max Lermontov.
Tickets will be £8 because we are good to you! They will be available in the physical domain very soon, details to follow.
Although it does seem typical we would advise getting one, the last night sold out very early and people were showing up in taxis getting turned away...which is a pisser for all concerned.
