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 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.
