Nathan promotes the very hush-hush Private Party that he co-promotes with musicians Mickey Moonlight and Zongamin At Private Party they feature live performance and art alongside DJ'ing. Hot Chip's Alexis Turner recently played for them and they've involved various artists, curators and fashion designers including Giles Deacon, Julie Veerhoeven, Pablo De la Barra, Susumu Mukai, Will Sweeney, Will Broome, Katie Hillier, Izzie Klingels and many more. He also runs the renowned label 'History Clock' with partner Jonny Burnip.:http://www.myspace.com/historyclock
With too many dj's cluttering up our lives it's not often you get to champion a true one-off. Nathan Gregory Wilkins can join the dots between modern pop, kooky techno, 80s disco and early House and make them sound like natural bedfellows. He's been at the cutting edge of dance for the best part of two decades. In London he has been the catalyst for some of the most exciting parties in recent has sound checked fashion catwalk events from London to Milan. If you have an interest in music full of wit and invention, with Nathan you'll hear a DJ whose boyish excitement for finding those special records remains undimmed. Nathan is one of Jarvis Cockers favourite djs and even played at his wedding.
Jon Burnip http://myspace.com/capracara
The man behind the name Capracara is Englishman Jonathan Burnip, who has released 2 acid drenched singles on UK label Soul Jazz and remixed for the likes of Matt Edward’s Rekids label and Kill The DJ. He also remixes as one half of Tiger Timing and has contributed to the esoteric disco label History Clock. His latest project is 'Churchill's Leopards' with Joel Martin of Quiet Village.
'King of the Witches' takes its cues from the psychotronic, primitive electronics of early house music and ancestral rhythms of heathen drum machines. Chock full of wonky left?eld quirkiness and primitive sounding gear, the song is geared for the heads and the headphones and is so uniquely catchy and bouncy, it sounds more Jean Jacques Perry than Jacque Lu Cont.
The remix comes courtesy of NYC legends Rub ‘N’ Tug (Thomas Bullock and Eric Duncan), who create what will inevitably be one of the remixes of 2009, and no it is not too early to make that statement. They ?ip what might sound quaint into something sinister and ever-growing, a dark loopy anthemic interpretation that does nothing but help cement their status as the most creative and exciting remixers and musicians working today.
