Total Niceness // BASS CHRONICLES # 8 @ The White Lion > 232 Streatham High Road SW16 1BB - 9pm till 4am > with UNIQUE 3






Greetings Everyone

Total Niceness // BASS CHRONICLES #8 promises to be one of our most lively events to date at the White Lion.

On Saturday October 7th we have a top line up ready to make you jump an sway the night away with us

Special guests for the night will include the legendary UNIQUE 3(Edzy). Unique 3 were among the true Old Skool innovators who helped forge the early UK 'Bleep' House sound in the late eighties and ended up inspiring several of this countries leading electronic artists to start making music themselves !!

Moving on to the present - Unique 3 are still producing slick beats and have recently been signed to Fat! Records - I look forward to hearing what Edzy has created for release on one of the UK's major breaks labels. A typical Unique 3 DJ Set can span old skool electro, early 80's synth stuff and roll straight across the spectrum to techno, house, breaks and end up with a bit of Drum & Bass - what you get as standard though will be basslines to make you move yo ass

To keep the temperature stoked we have invited Luton based Rob Focus & Mack the Knife (from 5 piece Apply the Breaks crew DJ's who are now Raindance Breaks room regulars down at the SEOne club in London Bridge). Rob and Mack regularly hype crowds up Bedfordshire way with their regular Apply the Breaks nights and residency at St Albans Monday Club. You can catch Rob regularly guesting on the Jimmy MOFO show on www.iBreaks.co.uk 8-10pm GMT - and if you read MOFO Magazine you will know that Mack keeps us up to date with regular journalistic contributions. Their tear-out selection rocks dance floors every where they play and they are guaranteed to hit the spot for us on October 7th.

To complete our guest line up we have Shaman - the leading force behind East London breaks night URBAN NIGHTS. Over the past few months their event has gone from strength to strength at the Pool Bar on Curtain Road offering a mix of on the up Breaks DJ's and solid production featuring live drumming / scratching & VJ'ing to compliment the Beats, Breaks & Bass mayhem

All that plus of course you can catch the regular Total Niceness crew too > Benergy > Delsa > Boy Wonder & iDLE will all be in the place to help lift the roof with a hefty dose of Breaks, Old Skool, DNB and plenty of scratch support.

Prepare yourselves for another heavy night

Total Niceness // BASS CHRONICLES # 7 @ The White Lion SW16 > 2 Sep : with COLLINS 303

Well - it looks like summer has burned itself out for another year but we will certainly not be letting things cool down at Total Niceness // BASS CHRONICLES # 7 !!

This month we welcome NSB radio's 'Serato Sessionz' maestro Collins 303 down to The White Lion for the first time. Collins as some of you may know is a rather versatile DJ. If you are one of those people not in the know then just visit www.collins303.com and check his mix download section to see just what I am on about.

At home with selecting and blending a jacking breaks set as much as he is with carving out a classic 80's retro pop set, Collins is proving himself to be a modern day alchemist with the Rane Serato !

Mr 303 will be performing a 2hr set for us on Saturday so if you have not seen him in action then here's the perfect opportunity. If you have seen him in residency at nights such as Armitage Skanks or Prolific/Contrast then you'll be ready for his bubbling musical melting pot.

Getting back to the rest of our line up we have Total Niceness legend Benergy to kick off the night and ease us on our way with his regular warm up set stylings.

And finally, with Delsa catching some rays over in Marbella for a few days it will be left for myself and Boy Wonder to turn up the heat for the final 2 hours and entertain you with a tearout set spanning old skool, breaks and some skankin' D&B rhythms guaranteed to make the people jump and sway !

God bless John Terry, England Captain


Well hes done it, big John Terry was unvieled today as the new England captain and it was thoroughly deserved in my opinion, as a Chelsea fan I may be slightly biased but in his rise from the youth ranks to be the captain of Chelsea and now England I think its a great achievement. To all you scousers who thought Gerrard would make the better captain, well you can fuck off.

Delsa amazing adventures in and around brizzle


For the last month or so I have been taking a few trips into the surrounding areas of bristol to check out some of the beautiful scenery, eat some pub lunches from some fine west country establishments, smoke a few sneaky spliffs and to get a bit of exercise too. My first trips were based around the muddy old river avon, and the first one I took was to the serene village of pill which I got to via the beautiful ashton court estate where I stopped for a moment to contemplate the deer. The first picture is from the downs where I suveyed my return route through the leighwoods and avon valley nature reserve on the side of the avon coming back into bristol. From here I continued to ashton court and then I had a rather tasty pub lunch in a place called Abbots Leigh on he way, although I thought the folk may be a touch backward there I was releaved to find that they did have a chip and pin card reader for me to buy some food with, sadly it turned out they were a bit slow and they locked me in the garden as they decided to close the pub whilst I was still eating and enjoying my pint. from here i journeyed to Pill which was down a fuck off big hill which was quite fun, I had a rather fun trip back along the river from there but seemed to spend half my time dodging rabbits who seemed to be sun bathing on the path. From here I returned to bristol on the south side and relaxed for a spot of sun bathing on a piece of waste ground which is something south bristol seems to have in large supply.

In the Immortal words of bruiser, "Ave some of that!"

Zidane's Inspirational Foul

"No-one celebrates a bad foul, but just as no-one celebrates a blazing fire in a carpet warehouse, it doesn't stop you having a good look." (Danny Baker) Simon Tyers rounds up football's 50 fouls that most warranted a stretch for assault and GBH.

1) Harald Schumacher v France, 1982 : Sometimes known as Toni, always known as the goalkeeper who all but killed Patrick Battiston. Referee's response : goal kick.

2) Mario David v Chile, 1962 : They didn't call it the Battle of Santiago for nothing, you know. David takes revenge on the Chilean who broke his team-mate's nose (see no. 15) by executing a perfect karate kick on his neck. Red card.

3) Eric Cantona v some French club, 1992 : You must know this one, it's shown all the time. Player releases ball; a second later Cantona jumps - jumps - in two-footed on the player's mid-leg region. Red card immediately.

4) Graeme Souness v Dynamo Bucharest, 1986 : Like Cantona, except the studs were in the groin. Hmm. Best not to think about that one for too long, really.

5) Ole Gunnar Solskjaer v Newcastle, 1997 : Man Utd, losing 1-0 in a match in the tense title race against Arsenal, get a last minute corner. The ball is cleared to Rob Lee. One on one, with 75 yards to go and a 10 yard start on Solskjaer. The baby-faced assasin finally catches up with him, after an exciting sprint, on the edge of the box, where Lee recieves a full-blooded two-footed challenge. Mind you, from a Man Utd perspective, it saved a certain goal, and so the end justified the means.

6) Steven Pressley v Aberdeen, 1998 : 'I can appreciate how it might have looked on TV but I've not doubts there was no malice in the tackle.' Pressley, obviously shrugging off any inconvenience that Smith's karate kick onto his head might have caused.

7) Julian Dicks v Chelsea, 1996 : Dicks goes unpunished, Spencer needs 30 stitches in his head after it meets the studs of Dicks' boot.

8) Mark Bosnich v Spurs, 1993 : Had it not happened on the same night that Matthew Simmons got his Warhol-esque 15 minutes of fame, Mark 'I'm Basil Fawlty, me, honest' Bosnich would have got more attention for knocking Klinsmann out. As it is, his knee-to-forehead-of-standing-Klinsmann assault remains a hazy memory for most. Including Jurgen himself, one suspects.

9) Jamaican player v Toros Neza, 1997 : One of the greatest fights in football history - ending with pre-English era Jamaicans bringing chairs, bricks and broken glass onto the pitch to aid their cause. Sadly, we can only pick one moment - about 7 seconds into the brawl, a Jamaican gets a full drop kick in the back.

10) Roy Keane v Crystal Palace, 1994 : Before this FA Cup semi-final replay, the two managers had appealed for calm between the fans after the first game had seen fighting that led to the death of a Palace fan. All the more ironic, then, that Keane should give Gareth Southgate a set of studs in the chest.

11) Eric Cantona v Swindon, 1994 : Eric's first sending-off in England, and no expense was spared either - a full set of right boot studs in John Moncur's chest, with the referee about six yards away.

12) Gianluca Pagliuca v Roma, 1993 : Pagliuca gets sent off on an occasional basis for professional fouls, but this is by far his best work. On a wet pitch, he starts the slide towards the onrushing striker from four yards out, and yet still packs enough energy into the, er, 'tackle' to send the player into a half-somersault which ends with him landing on his neck.

13) Leonardo v USA, 1994 : Kevin Keegan's pre-1998 finest commentating moment, as he defends the Brazilian's right to elbow Tab Ramos in the face, breaking his nose, by claiming that Ramos should have been disciplined for holding Leonardo's shirt, and thus any later actions should be nullified.

14) Paul Bosveldt v Man Utd, 1997 : Dennis Irwin nearly gets the lower part of his body snapped in two as Bosveldt's boots land halfway up his leg. The moment that turned the whole country behind United's European bid. If only for a few seconds.

15) Sanchez v Italy, 1962 : Back to Santiago, and the Chilean breaks Maschinot's nose with a punch that most of the heavyweight division would be proud of.

16) Marco Boogers v Man Utd, 1994 : Two things everyone knows about Boogers : he ended up living in a caravan, and he nearly cut Gary Neville's legs off with a wild challenge in his only West Ham appearence.

17) Cameroon team v Argentina, 1990 : A team effort - Caniggia avoids one hospital tackle, only to be sent flying by a second two-footed challenge. Yes, it wasn't just in the last World Cup that Cameroon earned their 'African Uruguay' tag.

18) Dennis Wise v Middlesbrough, 1998 : Gazza can give out the knocks, but he also gets them - his Coca-Cola Cup final enlivened by Wise's jump-in two-footed challenge on his right leg.

19) Willie Young v Arsenal, 1980 : Paul Allen, already the youngest player in this century's FA Cup Finals, would have scored a 'stuff of dreams' goal late on, had Young not crudely, but effectively, cut him down.

20) Ian Wright v Man Utd, 1997 : Some people claimed that Schmeichel wasn't actually touched by Wright's full-studs-on-leg-over-the-top-of-the-ball stamp, even though Wright later admitted it, and the two had to be seperated by police in the tunnel after Wright pushed away stewards and team-mates alike to get to Schmeichel, who he'd earlier claimed had racially abused him.

21) Alan Shearer v Leicester, 1998 : What's this doing here? The FA said he was only trying to free himself from Neil Lennon's legs, so why should we doubt them?

22) Giuseppe Bergomi v Norway, 1993 : Bergomi isn't one to hang around - sent off 15 seconds after coming on as sub after kicking a prone Norwegian in the face in a crucial World Cup qualifier.

23) Stuart Pearce v France, 1991 : A match better remembered for a) Graham Taylor dropping Lineker for David Hirst, b) Alan Shearer's first international goal, and c) Geoff Thomas single-handedly finishing his international career. What they don't remember is Psycho forcing a forward roll-cum-somersault out of a French midfielder who had let go of the ball a split second earlier.

24) Andoni Goicochea v Maradona, 1987 : The Butcher of Bilbao broke Maradona's right leg with a two footed challenge. He keeps the boot that made contact in a glass display case in his house. Charming.

25) David Batty v Tunisia, 1998 : OK, so Batty probably didn't mean to overhead-kick a Tunisian in the face so hard that Batty spun 180 degrees in the air...

26) Vinny Jones v Man City, 1990 : A normal Wimbledon-Man City old 1st Division game. Kick off. The ball is passed to the City striker. Who is promptly sent flying by Vinny. Three seconds in, and Jones breaks his own fastest league booking record (which stood at two seconds longer)

27) Julian Dicks v Man Utd, 1996 : Andy Cole was sent head over arse by a sliding two-footed challenge. Andy Gray nearly spontaneously combusted, while even David Mellor called Dicks an animal (Dicks amusingly threatened to sue)

28) Peter Schmeichel v Charlton, 1994 : A classic of the kamikaze goalkeeper collection - Kim Grant is sent flying 30 yards out by a goalkeeper seemingly oblivious to the fact that Rufus still had Paul Parker to beat. And to compound the action, Schmeichel handballed as well. A red resulted, although United still won 3-1.

29) Kevin Moran v Everton, 1985 : The first Cup final dismissal, and a challenge which Moran put everything into. I bet that in the days after United won that match someone said that they should have the Cup win rescinded because of the sending off.

30) Eric Cantona v Norwich, 1994 : The first sign, really, that Cantona was a 'bit of a livewire', as he kicked a passing Ian Butterworth in the stomach. Jimmy Hill complained, at which Alex Ferguson said that the BBC were Liverpool supporters. Incredibly (for the time), some people didn't think that was the case.

31) Faustino Asprilla v Man City, 1993 : Asprilla, in an early match for Newcastle, elbows Keith Curle in the face in the first half. Not content with that, he ends the match by headbutting him. Asprilla is eventually banned for four matches; curiously, Curle is also called before the FA, but let off.

32) Robbie Slater v West Ham, 1997 : Hugo Porfirio landed on the advertising boards a short distance away after being launched by a sliding challenge.

33) Barry Richardson v Macclesfield, 1998 : Richardson actually got his contract cancelled after kicking a prostrate opponent in the chest, launching a mass brawl.

34) Michael Owen v Manchester United, 1998 : Someone recently said that Owen had 'a rock solid temperament'. Having never seen his headbutt sending-off offence in an England U-18 game, we'll have to settle for his attempted disabling of Ronny Johnsen's ankles that got him dismissed.

35) Tommy Widdrington v Port Vale, 1993 : Vale veteran John Jeffers was launched into the air after a full-blooded foul by Widdrington.

36) Des Walker v Ipswich, 1993 : A forgotten classic which earned Walker a red card after the game, for headbutting John Wark on the back of the neck.

37) Joao Morais v Brazil, 1966 : For all Eusebio's brilliance in that World Cup, they could never quite shake off the memory of their player firstly upending Edson Arantes with a sliding tackle, and then, when he got up, going for the old favourite 'kick in the thigh' method that ruled Pele (who never played at Wembley, y'know) out of the rest of the tournament.

38) Neil Ruddock v Manchester United, 1996 : A reserve game, but no reserve in Ruddock's slide from four yards out that ended with Cole four feet in the air with his leg broken, and then landing so badly on the other one that he broke part of that as well.

39) Peter McParland v Manchester United, 1957 : In the 50's it was legal for strikers to shoulder-charge goalkeepers : McParland tried it on Ray Wood in that year's cup final, but only succeeded in knocking him out with a headbutt as well. Ah, but it was so much more gentlemanly in the old days...

40) Graeme Souness v Celtic, 1987 : Souness' player-managing debut. He spent the second half managing after kicking an opponent in a midfield tussle.

41) John Fashanu v Spurs, 1993 : Gary Mabbutt had his cheekbone fractured and had to train in a 'Phantom of the Opera-style mask' (TM : every newspaper ever). The case went to court, but was thrown out after Graham Kelly suggested that such challenges happen in every game on a regular basis. Right you are then, Graham.

42) David Batty v Chelsea, 1997 : Before the game, Batty, interviewed on Radio 5 Live, said that despite his hardman image, he'd never been sent off. Cut to a few hours later, and Batty had corrected that situation by jumping in with both feet on Eddie Newton.

43) Johnny Giles v Liverpool, 1974 : The Charity Shield ('but there's no charity here...') that ended with Keegan and Bremner sent off. Earlier in the game, Keegan had been decked magnificently via Giles' fist.

44) Mick Jones v Chelsea, 1970 : For foul watchers, the 1970 FA Cup Final replay was a classic of the genre, and never more so when Jones went in several hours late on Peter Bonetti.

45) Vinny Jones v Liverpool, 1989 : The Crazy Gang's most famous member sent the Culture Club's Alan Hansen flying with a sliding challenge.

46) Paul Gascoigne v Nottingham Forest, 1991 : Forget the Gary Charles challenge - Gazza's best moment of that Cup final came in the second minute when he introduced one set of his studs to Garry Parker's chest on a follow-through.

47) Zinedine Zidane v Saudi Arabia, 1998 : Zidane, who had had a magnificent game, clocked off early with a stamp on a prone Arabian's ankle.

48) Unknown Paraguayan v England, 1986 : Lineker scored a brace only after recieving treatment for an early elbow in the face that cameras only just spotted.

49) Ian Wright v Manchester United, 1997 : Earlier in the game that ended with no.20, Wright had been booked for nearly making Dennis Irwin the first Irishman in space.

50) Terry Fenwick v Argentina, 1986 : One of football's great mysteries : why, when he had sent Maradona flying in the first half of the same game, did Terry Fenwick react to the same player's later run towards goal by sticking his arm out hopefully?

That's right once again we're back down at The White Lion in Streatham for another installment of Total Niceness, Bass Chronicles.

APPLY THE Niceness - 9th May @ Inigo, 642 Wandsworth Rd SW8

This month Total Niceness - undisputed champions of the Tuesday night mash up - welcome Luton's finest in Breakbeat & Old Skool : APPLY THE BREAKS !!

Tonight marks the end of the fortnightly pace we have set for the past 2 years down at Inigo. We will be switching to a less frequent service from now on as we now have our fingers firmly plugged into a couple of other pies : Lovage @ The White House in Clapham (Last Thursday of each month) and Total Niceness : Bass Chronicles @ The White Lion in Streatham (First Saturday of every month). Keep watching this space for our next installment of the Tuesday evening carnage !

Anyway - back to business. To kick start the party this time round we have 3 sets of duos doing the damage for us :

First up we've got 2 of the 3 Das Miesters boys in the place for us. Gillotron and Paul Torch have been stalwarts of the Total Niceness line up down at Inigo over the past 2 years. These guys know how to work the crowd with their funk and electro tinged breaks and will not disappoint - you can catch me (iDLE) laying down some scratch support for my old pals as well.

Next up we welcome back 2 from 5 of the Apply the Breaks crew. Rob Focus and Daddy Fingaz will be in the place to rock the floor with their bass driven breaks and scratch up set. These guys dancefloor credentials speak for themselves they're Raindance regulars as well as providing Luton with the finest in Breaks and Old Skool parties for several years now with stunning line ups and top production - they will most definitely be bringing the noise for us to Inigo tonight ! Check out www. applythebreaks.co.uk to find out more about these guys.

Closing the evening tonight you have Delsa and myself iDLE back to back. You can expect a full on bass assault from us guys : bassline breaks, electro, probably some sick low frequency dub step and a smattering of Old Skool hardcore and Hip Hop - plus a ton of scratching from me and Daddy Fingaz.

Hope to see lots of you beautiful people down there tonight !

2100 - 2300 : Das Miesters // Gillotron & Paul Torch
2300 - 0030 : Apply The Breaks // Daddy Fingaz & Rob Focus
0030 - 0200 : Delsa & iDLE

Bass Chronicles @ The White Lion 6th May

Yes, Its that time of the month again, pay days should be blossuming as we speak along with the flowers of spring. As we start another month it means its time for another installment of Total Niceness Bass Chronicles and this time we are at number 3 in the series another splendid mash up of all things bass related from Breaks, to Electro via some raw House with a large slice of dubstep if i've got anything to do with it, i might even drop Duppy if i get over excited, down at the White Lion I don't know whether playing that track will get me showered with empties or howered with praise so maybe watch this space.
This month we've got a strictly resisdents special with four members of the hardcore total niceness massive gracing the decks..........................................
Stealing Benergy's thunder and also his first set is non other than myself kickstarting proceedings with some more laidback beats, mayeb some prog and techy breaks, a smatterin of dubstep and possible a spot of electro if im in the mood for it.
Next up and never far from the start of things is Mr Benergy who apart from showcasing a large selection of more uplifting breakbeats and house related bizniz will be charming all and sundry allnight with his wit and easy going banter, if you see him get him a cider or something that looks pretty to drink and you'll hit it off great.
Third in the order of things and central to proceedings is non other than Gus, a Total Niceness trooper through and through whos got us out of a few scrapes in his time. Gus is going to be playing some rasping prog house, as heavy on the bass as it is on the melody. If you've caught any of his sets own at Inigo or at Lovage at the White House, then you'll know your in for a treat.
Last but by no means least we have the one and only electro avenger Dj Idle, whos going going to amaze, confuse, batter and bruise most likely with a et that will truely define bass heavy, with anything from breaks and electro, to old skool hardcore mayhem, although if he starts with the hardcore then i'm heading to the basement.

Full line up:

Delsa
Benergy

Alright intrepid listeners I'm sorry that its been a bit slakc round here of late, we've had a few changes in the total niceness empire and one of those is the end of the Total Niceness bi-weekly Tuesday mashup madness down at Inigo in Battersea, we've had some great times down there over the last two years and I've had some hangovers which are the stuff of legend and enjoyed a lot ofg treats from donna inn returning from there at 3am on a wednesday. Alas all good things must come to an end and since i am based in bristol now, it seems to much stress so we will concentrate our efforts to dominate the whole of South London with our new endevour Bass Chronicles @ the White Lion in sunny Streatham and our other more high end bash at the White House in Clapham. So i slaute all the tuesday troopers who have supported the cause down at Inigo for the last two years and made it down and i hope to see some of you in the future.

On a brighter not I have some an important announcement regarding the radio show, next two weeks are glade replayed and it should be a reet laugh with some exclusive sets from some of the cream oif the breaks world, I've got the awesome PMT and there should be some treats instore for everyone and some exclusive Glade fesival related prizes to.

Time has come for the addition of a 3rd regular night – Total Niceness : BASS CHRONICLES – happening on the 1st Saturday of every month.

The venue for this new night will be The White Lion – 232 Streatham High Road. This is the sister bar of Jamm in Brixton and has recently been refurbished (by man of many talents our very own Benergy).

Free from the reservations of a Tuesday night BASS CHRONICLES is aiming to be lowdown & dirty from the start, providing some twisted Saturday night party basslines for South London to wind to. Essentially Breaks, Electro & Dubstep will be the weapons of choice for the nights.

The first date to look out for is Saturday March 4th – DJ’s start at 9pm and finish at 4am. It’s going to be Breaks & Electro all night and this time round DJ’s will be :

Benergy
Smut Roast (Platform 12)
iDLE
Das Miesters (Future Fuzion)

Watch out for some top guests joining us over the coming months – Next up on April 1st we have a Dubstep spectacular featuring a Hotflush Recordings showcase - will keep you posted for further details.

Total Niceness Love Parade


We have a hot date for your diaries - next Tuesday 14th February - Forget having a romantic meal for 2 or a night of vigourous self-shuffling (if currently without partner) and get yourself down to Inigo - 642 Wandsworth Road Clapham SW8 for the a night of Total loved up Niceness.
Champagne, roses, fine wines, Belgian chocolates – poetry, the language of love – even rubber gloves in case things get messy – we’ve got it all in store for you.

Local lothario Benergy will be the first smooth operator up at the controls for the night with a welcoming mix of breaks and beats to get everyone in the mood.

Next up you have real treat in store from the hours of 1000 – 1130. Me and the Breaks Professor (AKA DJ Bladdered - AKA The Chutney Mong - AKA 'Our Kid' Gary) will be playing a NO MODERNS Love set. Expect to hear a mix of old and new breaks thrown over the top to keep people jumping while they choke down our 80's love action !

Stepping in at 1130 we have the housewives favourite - Plaza De Funk. You can expect a funk full set delivered straight from the heart by one of Italy’s finest. Peak time party music is guaranteed from this guy & no doubt the West Records thoroughbred will be serving out a good portion of exclusives to send pulses racing into the early hours.

To close the night we have another special double dosage of down right dirty Dubstep served up by Delsa and Envoy. The last time these two graced us with a back 2 back set at Inigo back in December they smashed it up big time & had the dance floor in full sway for their closing set. This time you’re in store for some more filthy bass punctuated with scratch support from myself and plenty of the freshest tracks with some of Envoy’s homegrown Guzzler Productions in the mix.

Anyway full line up is as follows :

2000 - 2200 : Benergy (The Original & Best)
2200 - 2330 : Breaks Professor & iDLE (Big GLove Set)
2330 - 0100 : Plaza de Funk (The Funked Up Italian
Breakbeat Stallion)
0100 - 0200 : Delsa & Envoy (The Dub Steppin' Duo)

If anyone fancies getting down to kent for this then Ii strongly advise it, I am gonna try and trooper across from Bristol to make this, mainly due to the attendance of SOTEG who is making a rare UK performance and is not to be missed. Also, although its not on the poster the Funk Buddha is also making an appearance all the way from Amsterdam and as i have done a radio show before him for the last two months I can proclaim that he will providing a varied selection that will bring the bass and defienatly will not dispapoint. Also Henryo!d and Deadman Dj who I have yet to catch live but i am sure will not disapoint providing electro related action.
Hopefully on my return to Kent for following many japes there in my crazy slighty more youthful and svelte days i won't run into any old adversaries/crazy ex girl friends or any other crazy medway folk i may have upset last time i was there. Anyway the long and the short of it i that if you live in the South east of England and you like electro, breaks and bass, get down to this cos its gonna be large. A little fact for the brainiacs out there the last time I played in a Chatham in Kent was almost 4 years to the day of this event on valentines day. If anyone can tell me which club I played at they can win something really great. Email me @ delsa@retard.co.uk, that email address is not a jone btw.

Total Niceness @ Inigo 10th Of January 2006

To kick start Total Niceness for 2006 we have a little link up with the radio show and were featuring a guest mix on my show at 1 - 3pm of Paul Torch who you can then catch live at Inigo back to back with Gillotron. These two veterans have been playing with the Total Niceness since I linked up with them at their legendary Future Fusion parties in Brixton a fair few years back. The Das Miesters are well known for the varied selection oof fucky beats playing everything from electro to acid house via breaks. Also playing is Woody whos playin a varied selection of Hip Hop beats to kick back to, or bust of move too. Mr Luke Envoy will be literally kick starting the proceedings with a mixture of supposdely laid back sounds that promise to be anything but, if his last chill out set was anything to go by expect hip hop with machine gun noises and police sirens, nose bleed jungle and some grime infected dubstep it certainly will be worth getting there early for and definatly amaze and excite you in various ways and if your lucky he might sneek in some of his own guzzler productions . All in all there will be a a vast selection and some truely awesome music and its all absolutly free with some special drink promotions thrown in out o the goodness of our hearts.
The full line up is as follows:


Luke Envoy 8 - 10:00

Woody 10:00 - 11:00

Paul Torch B2B Gillotron 11:00 - 02:00*

*They are without the legend that is the breaks professor as he isnt allowed out on school nights anymore becuase he finds getting blink drunk doesn't induce good teaching practices the next day.
