How's Your Party?
- Pete MacLeod
- 20 January 2010
January, officially the worst month of the calendar, looks set to gain a boost this year with two How’s Your Party? shindigs. First up we have the world famous turntablists, The Scratch Perverts. Having won every trophy in sight, they now successfully bridge the gap between technical ‘how are they doing that?’ scratching and mixing dubstep, electro and hip hop. Supporting them will be local boy-done-good, Boom Monk Ben. Now an official DJ for Solid Steel Radio, Ben has been getting busy all over the shop with stop offs including Bestival and Rock Ness.
The following week, Joe Goddard from Hot Chip performs a DJ set. With his label, Greco Roman, home to Buraka Som Sistema, Dels and Drums of Death, he should fit in no bother at HYP? and will be mixing a variety of dubstep, electro, UK funky and hip hop. In support will be DJ Peter Digital Orchestra, perhaps best known for his wonky hip hop tunes under his alter ego Fulgeance. With his low-slung beats left firmly to one side, the Parisian will be going straight into 4/4 mode. His debut EP ‘Juicy Lady’ grabbed attention with its stuttering sample-heavy tunes obviously made straight from bashing on an MPC and heavily influenced by Matthew Herbert and Mr Oizo. Supporting both out of town guests will be Glasgow’s Point to C, whose sets at Mixed Bizness events have allowed him to showcase his characteristic blend of electronica, dubstep and hip hop.
Sub Club, Glasgow, Sat 22 & 29 Jan
