So a peek at who we have on board the disco train;
Richard Sen (Padded Cell)
Graffiti artist Richard Sen has been DJing since 1989 starting with a residency at the legendary Crazy Club at the now deceased Astoria. Ecstacy, Acid House and frequent trips to New York, visiting his heroes at Nu Groove and Strictly Rhythm gave Richard the house music bug. He is known for his production outfits Padded Cell and Bronx Dogs.
Highlights of his career include: Heavenly Social residency 1998-2000, ‘DJ of the Month’ FACE 1998, being nominated for ‘Best New DJ’ MUZIK AWARDS 1998. He was also a key influence on the 80’s underground graffiti movement in the UK (and also one of the first to be sent to prison for graffiti!) and appeared in the BBC television documentary Open Space ‘Bad Meaning Good’ in 1987. His artwork has also graced the record covers of Sabres of Paradise (‘Smokebelch’ and ‘Theme’). A full interview on his graffiti and music work can be seen in the June 2005 issue of Undercover magazine.
Richard now records with partner Neil Beatnik under the name Padded Cell, they are signed to DC Recordings and released an album in May 2008. Sen has also done his own solo remixes for Cosmo Vitteli, Tirk and Black Devil Disco Club
In keeping with the attitude from his graffiti background, Richard’s DJ style is totally unique and it’s important for him not to be pigeonholed. He has played big room house/techno sets and can also play crazy eclectic sets including psyched out rock, leftfield cosmic funk and disco, newave/electro oddities and early house obscurities
FSoC was born 4 years ago on a dark night in the heavily claustrophobic and chemically-charged mist of Hackney marshes. The bastard child of Techno-Electro-Disco heads DJ's Fumix and Marco, its birth was an "accident" that sparked a string of underground parties in East-London, a regular show on Samurai.fm together with gigs as far as Poland, Italy, Singapore and Japan, and many, many, many Monday morning hangovers! FSoC's latest extravaganza is "Comadisco", their bi-monthly night in Dalston with guests such as Trevor Jackson, Ben Bloodbath, Mugwump, Popnoname, Allez Allez etc..., steadily gaining popularity amongst like-minded souls.With some remix work and their own production in the pipeline, watch these guys blow up.
There is no denying it, the Moustache is becoming the new mullet, the modern cowboy boot, the sideburn for the urban fashionista…The Moustache Mamas don’t leave home without one - Always trimmed to perfection & and waxed just right. For most it is a statement of cool, but for others it is a statement of their history, and a physical embodiment of their very soul.
Comprising their many years of vinyl collecting under one gambit of muscle, the Mamas let loose with a special blend of classic disco, dirty funk, syncopated pop favourites, new-disco & a bit of yacht-rock (for the landlocked). Delivering Jump-suited genius and armed with disco-demons that unleash themselves when these two ladies unite: Helen Burnip & Tamara Deike – A Northerner, and a North American – they hold their own (and their cocktails). With influences that span from the southern Americas to the musical fusions of folk with energy and political aggression from the north, the Mamas have tackled social issues of femme-facial hair through their love of music.
The Mamas are known to breakout in energetic Jane Fonda-esque lunging behind the decks & incite moustached madness from dance floor goers and demand you to bring your party-pants & get your lip fur ready!
Neil Thornton (Lasermagnetic/ Tropicana)
