Cutmaster Swift

Cutmaster Swift

Encouraged by his father to explore music to the full Cutmaster Swift (CMS) began his close association with Hip Hop as a B-Boy (Break dancer), initially for fun while at school, he help form the Crash Crew & they entered & won local B-Boy competitions, but CMS never forgot his DJing passion as it was also his duty to provide music for this crew.

Although he didn’t have the appropriate DJ Tools he further developed his Dj skill’s also by using his Mother’s home HI FI, using just the cassette player’s pause button to extend his early collection of Break Beats! It wasn’t until ’84 that CMS took a much more dedicated role in his DJing, he help form the Imperial Mixers; Cuttin K, Robbie Wiz & the Imperial Mixer. “Imperial Mixer was the first bedroom DJ that I knew with a pair of 1200’s” who also became Westwood’s first official Mix DJ during LWR pirate radio show broadcasts, which gave the crew plenty of weight to support many early US act’s such as Kurtis Blow!

It was also the Imperial Mixers Who introduced at that time the unknown & very talented female dynamic duo “The Cookie Crew”! In 86′ CMS eventually got his own set of 1200’s & stepped into a solo career, although the Imperial Mixers never officially broke up CMS maintains the crews focal influence his talents were also further fueled by producing music which started with the introduction of The No Parkin Mcs; Mike C, Kiss & Storm. 87′ Westwood also invited CMS to join him on his Capital Rap Radio to perform weekly mixes which further help expose CMS out of the box DJing style & saw pioneering beat creating techniques like; The Copy Cat which also know as the chasing! One of CMS most infamously technquies was the re-introduction of Grandwizard Theordore’s “Needle Dropping” (a forgotton art at that time!) at the 1988 New Music Seminar battles in NY! All this ultimately gave CMS full recognition throughout the world as well as the UK’s underground Hip Hop scene!

During this period their was another Hip Hop DJ also making waves He also became CMS ultimate sparing partner he was “The mighty DJ Pogo”, their partnership has maintained to this day with the addition of the Infamous DJ Biznizz & in 96 Pogo entitled the crew as the En4cers! Although CMS was aware of the DMC World Mixing Championships it was Pogo who initially decided about seriously entering DMC’s ’88 UK championships since both DJs had gained by now full national acknowledgment DMC would be the official proof of DJ dominance! Initially CMS had no interest in entering this event since he considered his style to unorthodox plus at that time DMC’s world entrants mainly attracted club DJs from professional commercial backgrounds!

It didn’t take long for CMS view to change especially after Pogo’s first easy victory winning his first qualifying round, “I’ll never forget seeing Pogo after that heat, as he paraded around in the DMC/Technics regional champ Jacket he was awarded, from then I decided it was worth entering just for one of those! CMS change of mind enabled him to triumph in the UK event his first major victory but he was unsuccessful in placing in that World year which saw the US Champion Cash Money awarded the title. 89′ would be at last CMS triumphed year as not only did he became the first UK champion to regain a title defense he also finally took home the World title while wining the very first Gold Deck prize this victory enabled him to tour the World & when home CMS would also focus on his music productions for: No Parkin’, the Demon Boy’s, Storm-The All Season Entertainer & Upfront Rudies are just a few to mention!

Today CMS now works for DMC from consulting, producing a series of specialized Turntablist records entitled Battle Breaks, providing a very Successful Mixing course at DMC head quarters & Authoring their championships to DVD! CMS is still in touch with his roots of playing music in clubs “it appears I’ve gone full circle, there’s a new generation of fans out there & the popularity of this art form is constantly growing, its my duty to educate this new audience through my music collection & knowledge, I may have been doing this a long time but every appearance is like a first, Plus I’m a firm believer that youre only as good as your last gig”! .. .. ..MyGen.. ..Profile Generator.. .. ..

Ed Braeling


London born and bred. Ed started DJing through a love of house and breaks in the mid 90s. Ed has appeared on stages and festivals across the UK supporting headline acts such as the Propellerheads, Plump DJs, DJ Yoda & Norman Jay.

Eds love of music passes from DJing into music video production and capturing portraits of his heros for publications in the international press such as NME, Mixmag and Vogue. He has achieved industry acclaim for his work on ephemeral radio shows such as ‘Friday Nite Flavas’ and the DMC championships.

Ed also has championed the rather unlikely works of artists like Ennio Morricone, Murray Gold and Hans Zimmer through his work as a key artist on productions for film and TV. His live sets are a fusion of genres with one solid bass line driving the dance floor. Always digging in crates to find obscure beats and rarities, never seen with a laptop he opts for a mixed bag of vinyl and CD’s, a self confessed technophobe, Ed is a more the fan of audio fidelity through analogue records and mixing technique than gadgetry and gizmos.

We asked Ed a few questions about his Djing career

HR: So what was the strangest gig you’ve ever played?

Ed: It’s an even win for some of the early So Solid gigs and an odd night spent with Tony Blackburn. If I was going to have to give one answer it would of had to of been witnessing the transformation of mild mannered Tony Blackburn backstage supping red wine and eating grapes to a crazy wild man dancing around a stage in-front of a crowd of students. Very strange night and a very pleasant man. I have a lot of respect for the guy, he’s been a great advocate of British music for decades although I would say leave the medallion at home – nearly had some poor girls eye out!

HR: Any odd song requests at gigs?

Ed: Only the usual really, “Oi bruv, got any old school…”. To which I reply “Punk or Rock?” faces usually look glazed then a rock a little Rat Pack and they go away.

HR: What can we expect to see you up to next?

Ed: I’m going into the studio working on a collaboration album doing my usual genre bashing. I think we’ve seen such huge changes in the music industry over the last 5 years or so and it’s time to look at things a little differently. It won’t be the usual 12 track hour long playlist. I don’t want to give too much away right now but it should twist a few minds and will be very experimental in places.

HR: What’s your all time favourite DJ ?

Ed: That is possibly the easiest thing anyone has ever asked me. John Peel without a doubt. Superb man, super DJ and all round nice bloke. He left us too soon.

Jem Stone vs Manouche

“Bin’ Thinkin is the result of a boozy collaboration between jazzy beats-master Jem “Stone” Panufnik (behind the infamous Finger Lickin’ Records) and snazzy fret-master Simon “Manouche” Harris (the man with the guitar who truly can) and featuring the delicious Bev Lee Harling with rolling pin aloft.

Direct from a dingy speakeasy at wrong o’clock, it’s available as vocal and instrumental versions, stinking of cheap whiskey and expensive chicks. Or the other way round.

Written and arranged by Simon Harris and Jem Panufnik. 

Produced by Jem Panufnik.

Simon Harris: vocals, guitar and trumpet

Jem Panufnik: keyboards, programming and silly noises

Hot Cakes ft Krafty Kuts

HotCakes_eflyer_Feb9th (1)

[button color=”orange” size=”large” align=”center” link=”http://brixton.fatsoma.com/events/79603″]£10 Advance Tickets[/button]

Hot Cakes and Supatronix return with another stunning lineup, following on from their December Xmas party which had the venue rammed to the rafters and rocking all night. This time around, they’ve put together a barnstorming lineup that will have breakbeat and bass music freaks throwing their hands up like there’s no tomorrow.

First up is the mighty Krafty Kuts, an EDM icon whose decade-and-a-half-long globetrotting adventures in search of the perfect funked up beat and the filthiest badboy bassline are legion. Currently celebrating the 10th anniversary of his infamous Tricka Technology single with fellow Brighton reprobate ASkillz, the artist otherwise known as Martin Reeves will be gracing Jamm and Hot Cakes with his presence for the first time.

The February lineup also plays host to Hot Cakes head honchos Deekline and Ed Solo, celebrating the launch of their spanking new double album Bounce ‘n’ Shake. With the LP featuring vocal contributions from the likes of Million Dan, Top Cat, Darrison and Sporty-O, and ranging from the baddest breakbeat to the most kick-ass jungle via some serious dubstep rollers, you know this one is going to have ’em reaching for the lasers.

The second special guest this time around is none other than High Wycombe basshead Foamo, one half of the so-hot-right-now Gorgon City production unit on Black Butter Records with Supatronix regular RackNRuin. When it comes to bass music with class and attitude, there is no-one on the scene right now to compare, and JAMM are delighted to have Kye Gibbon down for a debut set at the venue.

Finally, we have London badman Mike Delinquent Project in the place. With massive props from the likes of Annie Mac and Mistajam, this fresh new producer is making future bass music with heavy old skool breakbeat attitude, combining jungle, garage and grime flavours for an upfront new sound that cannot fail to have the bodies flying round the room. Do not miss.

Support in the main Supatronix room comes from Jurassik, Reveal and Se7en Deadly Breaks. Room two is hosted by London crew Habitual, sending down an array of eclectic bass music sounds, with Finger Lickin Records’ legends Slyde sitting atop the lineup.

Hot Cakes and Supatronix events always sell out, so make sure to grab your tickets early. In a desert of head-nodding hipster beats, this is one party guaranteed to inject a bit of good old-fashioned dancehall energy back into proceedings. Can we get a holler?
