Big Gwans Dancehall: HUGE LDN Warehouse Rave Oct 1st now ft WARRIOR QUEEN!

ADDRESS:
2a Corsham st
London
N1 6DP
STOP PRESS: We now have the undisputed queen of UK bashment Warrior Queen on the bill, BOOM.
We are extremely proud to announce the launch of our next Warehouse extravaganza in a top secret central warehouse location:
Big Gwan invites you step into his dancehall of bass-drenched debauchery and rum-soaked rock n roll rhythms where freaks meet beats in a tropical grime hoe down…

Mash it up in the technicolour international bass den downstairs, with a cross section of the finest selectors the UK and Americas have to offer, tempted into the chaos by Big Gwan himself… Ascend from the depths of the den and take of the devilish pleasures on offer inside the rock n roll disco, where heavy blues men drink with sultans of surf, and circus cabaret is performed for drunk punks and lost children of the rave..  Feed your senses and groom your souls with genuinely cheap liquor and all the freedom of the speakeasy…Come shake off your shackles and grind down with Big Gwan!

10 pounds entry all night, includes free drink!

IN THE TECHNICOLOUR INTERNATIONAL BASS DEN

WARLOCK (Rag n Bone) – Legendary DJ and producer Warlock plays a spontaneous mix of all things dark and bass heavy, mashing up dubstep, mutant bass line, fidget funky, tropical and of course the odd old skool rarity.

ROSSI B AND LUCA (Heavy Artillery/1Xtra) -UK grime pioneers and 8 year Rinse FM veterans, there is no hype, Rossi B and Luca have it locked.

HEADCLEANER (Rephlex/Magnox) -In a world of laptop sets and serato, to see a home built modular synth in action with its singer rave pilot at the controls is something that is not to be missed!

SASQUATCH (Senseless) – Like the mythical beast his name conjures up, sasquatch is a monster in the studio. His broad reaching heavy bass sound has scored him gigs across the globe, working with likes of Foreign beggars, Max Romeo and Warrior Queen, to name but a few legends… 

SVN BVRN (Destroy culture/pollinate) – Destroy culture crusader cooks up a melting pot of tribal percussion, kuduro, tribal and tropical bass..
MUSKUT- Muskut’s style is pushing the boundaries of hip hop by adding grime and dubstep to the forefront of his high end production and mixes, earning him slots alongside Jehst, foreign beggars and many more powerhouses of the UK hip hop scene.

CHAOS CABARET – Expect death defying circus and pantomime perversions from the cream of London’s twisted cabaret underworld..

JOHN FAIRHURST BAND – Globally acclaimed John rips out some of the rawest, heaviest blues you will ever see, think captain beefheart meets seasick steve with all the guitar skills of Robert Johnson and you are approaching what is a truly unmissable, if somewhat violating experience!

LOS PECADORES – These 5 piece sultans of surf bring back the sexy psychedelia of surf and the fiery power of punk to make a perverted, sweat soaked monster of a show!

100% BEEFCOCK AND THE TITSBURSTER –Female 2 piece, explode with full blown guitar distortion and erratic bass lines to a back drop of borderline psychotic drumming, picture the aphex twin in flagranti with early butt hole surfers in a mental insitution..

2011 marks five years of Senseless Records, five years since the soundsystem culture of Leeds, UK inspired us to press the first Sarantis white label grime EP. In that time we’ve searched the UK and far beyond for international heat reaching out from Warsaw to Caracas. We’ve released almost twenty EPs and two albums of technicolour bass music from an extended family of artists including vocalists like Max Romeo, Warrior Queen, Badness, Foreign Beggars and YT and producers like Jack Sparrow, Starkey, Ghosttown, Phantom, Kanji Kinetic, Brackles, MRK1, Pocz & Pacheko and many more.

Pandemonium circus is a shadowy group of performers featured in time out who have been working on the underground for a number of years under various names and guises, with acclaimed groups such as the Invisible Circus, the Mutoid Waste company, Prangsta, Guerilla Zoo, and the Boomtown Fair.

Pachanga! Warehouse rave photos are here

Pachanga was amazing, 2500 people and anyone there will tell you it was one of the best London warehouse raves in recent memory, pure vibes. Thanks to all the DJs who played, you smashed it. To High Pressure, Siren and Everyone Sound and everyone else who worked so hard to make it happen. Amazing photos are here courtesy of Bartek Szadura. (His Portfolio)

 

Senseless in Cardiff and Bristol

First up another round of huuuuge thanks to everyone that came and partied last weekend at Cafe 1001, ten hours of International Bass mayhem!

Down to business..
Our boy Pacheko is over in Europe and we’re doing a couple of Senseless showcases. Set your co-ordinates for the South and West. First stop is at Cardiff Arts Institute with the crew behind the excellent Chrome Kids blog. Pacheko and DeVille will be dropping the international bass bombs. They know how to party in Wales, get ready…
Here’s what they say:
The the following weekend we head back across the border to Bristol for a MONSTER of a line up. Huge shouts to Hivemind FM and Brock Out on this one, we’ve pulled together a killer line up of Senseless affiliated artists. I could go on but I think the incredible flyer can do the talking. Nuff hyperbole for now come on down:

KANJI KINETIC 'ZOMBIEZZ EP'

 

KANJI KINETIC – ZOMBIEZZ EP by Senseless Records

Support from Starkey, Donna Summer, Laurent Garnier, The Captain (Trouble & Bass), Slugabed, Chrome Kids, Riskoteque.

Senseless have always believed that the spirit of rave never died, it’s everywhere, but now in 2010 we’ve discovered that spirit distilled into its purest form, let’s call it essence of rave. Kanji Kinetic makes it, a monstrous hybrid of electro, bassline, jungle and, yes, rave. It doesn’t just deny classification, it smashes it to pieces. These tracks look backwards but sound like the future, they’re cheeky but deadly serious, they’re rough and smooth, sweet and sour, bouncy, wonky, hyper and just a little bit insane. In short, the ultimate party music.

The EP is a game of two halves, easing you in at 140 BPM with a wonky mixture of future-bassline and pitch bent synths (ToyGuns) then rolling into the monstrous Scientist. Reach-for-the-lazers rave stabs and scorching bass collide to make something seriously dangerous. We then take a quick diversion for a remix from Kaiser, a newcomer with releases coming on Starkey’s Slit Jockey, who twists Toy Guns into a devastating mix of grime, 8bit bleeps and UK Funky syncopation, this is what it sounds like to be one of those ghosts being eaten by Pacman.

Next up we turn up the pace for ‘New Era’, weighing in at 175 BPM, it’s the fastest thing we’ve ever released but its half time weight makes it feel like jungle chopped and screwed in the fifth dimension. Quite simply it has the biggest drop you will hear this year, possibly ever. It’s jungle tempo but drop this in a dubstep set and watch the floor ignite. The title track, Zombiezz also rocks 175 BPM on the half time but does it 4×4, cheeky cartoon samples and strings building to another seismic sub frequency workout.

Finally Zombiezz gets two remixes, Cracks turn in something pretty special, taking things back down to 140 and turn in a mix they’re calling ‘Horror House’, a visceral mixture of techno, grime and lots of bass. Then just for fun we asked legendary breakcore producer Johnny Sideways to see if he could make Zombiezz a little harder, and he did. Enjoy!

NB New Era and Zombiezz are being released as a split with our good pals Tigerbeat6, thanks guys.
