Offshore Hush Hush Edinburgh





In anticipation of his upcoming album on Big Dada records, we have booked Offshore for the first Hush Hush night in the capital.

He's played for us up north and we were blown away by his ability to effortlessly switch between Dubstep, Funky, Grime, Hip Hop along with all manner of weird and wonderful electronic sounds, whilst keeping the dancefloor bubbling very nicely indeed.

His first ep, the 'Offshore EP' on Stuff Records (the last record before they became Numbers) was a firm favourite of ours and his recent 12", 'The Aneurysm EP' on Big Dada further strengthens why we love his style so much.

Sound will be provided by Electrikal.

Support will be from Point To C & Giles Walker

Friday 27th May

Electrique BIG UP Boutique

First and foremost, Electrique Boutique have featured in this month's Mixmag as one of Britain's best free club nights. . .

"Dirty, bassy, electronica is hard to find in Aberdeen, certainly midweek. Thank God for Electrique Boutique. 'It gets quite rambunctious' one barmaid tells us. At £1.50 for a vodka mixer we're not surprised."

Most credit for this must be given to the monthly Electrique Boutique players, since I've been fairly out of the game since the beginning of this year, so pats on the backs to Kaplank Kapow (Krazzy Martin, Eezma, Talcolm X), Spin The Bottle (Bones and Money), Switch (PEDS, Dickie Drysdale) and of course the hostess with the mostest Mr Giles Walker. In other news, LES PETITS PILOUS touched base in Aberdeen on Friday night and fucking killed it. I was on supporting duties for the duration of the night, which I really enjoyed, and everyone who was there seemed to like what I was playing, so big love to all of yous! The French electronic stallions played a killer set with some big tunes aimed to please you all. Everyone seemed to have a fantastic night and Anthony and Jean-Patrick had a great night. They will hopefully be back to Aberdeen some time soon!


As a treat, here is a mixtape they have done for the Born To Film website; lovely stuff.


Next up folks? On the 24th March we have Adam Ackers and Yoin on duty for EB, Cagedbaby taking his residency spot on the 26th March and in no time at all, we have the return of HOT CHIP's Joe Goddard coming to spin the decks for us again....

The Blues

Primary 1 follows up his two massive collaborations with Riton, "Who's There?" and "Radiates" with the track 'The Blues' that features Swedish singstress Nina Persson (of the Cardigans). 'The Blues' is taken from his forthcoming debut album which is due for release later this year.


Bonus : Massive Attack have dropped their latest EP, and from what I hear it's good. From this first release, it sounds really fucking good. A surprisingly calm remix from big-gun techno man Gui Boratto.

Going SOLO

More Sound Pellegrino goodness that I just can't get enough of... I love many of SOLO's tracks, including 'Afreaka' and 'Midgets In Bricklane' (partly for the track name, it's inviting) and also his gangsta remix of Crooker's average track 'Put Your Hands On Me'. Originally from Italy, Solo moved to London and so spends most of his time in the studio producing 'midget house', simple grooves and weird atmospheres - nail on the head. He has produced and posted a February mix, which is full of awesome beats to get you going. Oh, tasty, tasty, tasty.

More Than Just a Yoghurt Pot

Woah Woah! So, carrying on the love train of Boys Noize last year, which was probably one of the most insane and best nights in Snafu of 2009 (if not EVER) we now have another Boys Noize flavoured treat coming our way - LES PETITS PILOUS - hailed and picked up by Alex Ridha's record label propelled to stardom in 2007 and are coming to Aberdeen in March. Best known for their massive club tracks 'Wake Up' and 'Jolie Fille', they have also produced remixes for Jusice, D.I.M., Mixhell, Chromeo, Toxic Avenger and The Proxy. They have found favour with the likes of Erol Alkan, 2 Many Dj's and Tiga and are close friends with Aberdeen club wreckers The Bloody Beetroots.

As the snow melts away, and is replaced by a grey sheet in the sky and droplets of cold rain, turn on this lovely Winter Mix by the talented Round Table Knights - It's pretty good. Giles has been a busy bee of late, if you've been down to Snafu recently (which I'm hoping you have!), covering for Steve on Dirty Hearts Club, his usual stance at Mixtape and picking up the residential Wednesday's of course. I have been away for a wee while, my last support slot being last November. MK will be back on the bandwagon soon.
