Summer is so so nearly here and after Ian's last post about Joy O. I though I'd take the chance to get excited about some of the talent hitting the clubs (and Gardens) over the next few weeks, which is all thats getting me through days of poring over Medical notes.
27/5 - WEOWN - Reaching no.2 in Mixmags monthly parties with their most recent offering WeOwn are bringing Dubstep heavyweights Skream & Benga to Ocean Terminal, ably supported by Skepta and rising star T.E.E.D along with some of their more familiar residents, One Dollar Dave and his side project Discopolis (recently announced for Rockness). These boys know how to throw a party, as anyone who witnessed Afrojack and Pete Tong will testify to, if you're a fan of your banging basslines this is one for you!
Pro. Green - Monster (T.E.E.D remix) - Fantastic remix of lyrical master Pro. Green, will go offfff in Ocean Terminal.
Professor Green - Monster (Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs Remix) by T-E-E-D
Miles Kane - Rearrange (Skreamix) This is Skreams new sound which is almost like a drum 'n' bass/dubstep crossover, its phenomenal whatever it is.

- 27/5 - Joy Orbison at CabVol. If you're into your more underground beats then Joy O is the one for you, Ian's already blogged about him, waxing lyrical so I won't go on for too long, but this guy has skiiiillllssss, he's making some of the most forward thinking music out there, he's not just riding the crest of Nu-bass, he's creating it! Support from Vincent Vega (Fuse), also known as Stu Todd and Gus Armstrong, two excellent DJs, promoters and all round top blokes!
Here he is remixing experimental masters Four Tet:- Four Tet - Love Cry (Joy Orbison Remix)
28/5 - Maurice Fulton @ Heavy Gossip Relaunch (Hawke & Hunter) - Juicy! DJs on the decks.
The next day the session continues with legendary house night Heavy Gossip's relocation to Hawke & Hunter and I have the pleasure of being on warm-up duties. They're bringing techno officionado Maurice Fulton in to cut the ribbon and maybe even play a few tunes, this will be a massive night so all you techno & house heads get down, this is not to be missed!

Alice Smith - Love Endeavour (Maurice Fulton Remix)
29/5 - Princes Street Gardens with Arno Cost, Joey Negro & Dirty Vegas.
The Studiopunks, who have previously put on the now legendary Edinburgh Rocks party's, have delivered one of the finest lineups seen in Edinburgh for a long time, with an all day party in the very scenic Princes Street Gardens and an afterparty at a soon to be announced venue with me and Ian on the decks, amongst others. This will be the perfect way to see out the May Bank Holiday and they've put together a free mix in preparation of the event just to whet appetites, have a listen to get you in the mood for a day not to be missed.
