LBC | [EVENT PREVIEW]
Over the past two years the LostBoysClub have been a dominant force when it comes to showcasing a deeper variety of electronic music in Nottingham. These guys know the method to success - from packing out venues and attracting worlwide sort after talents, with the likes of Machinedrum, French Fries and Mele all gracing the intimate but now historic Bodega stage.
Nottingham has been the home of the lostboys but with just as many booking in London it would seem as that the brand is growing with a good grounding. The 2013 period looks as exciting as ever with a full re-brand LBC just have got even more serious, and also introduced their first show of the upcoming term with support from Medlar and Trikk.
Ned Pegler. aka Medlar or Klic has gained support from a diverse selection of tastemakers including 2562, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Jackmaster, Addison Groove, 6th Borough Project, Space Dimension Controller and Jimpster - as well as airplay through Radio 1, 6Music and Rinse FM. His work under Klic continues to explore the territories between house, disco, garage, techno and upfront UK sounds. This eclecticism is reflected in his DJ sets, which while rooted in mid tempo club music, take it anything from experimental hiphop and boogie, to UK garage and Detroit techno - drawing from the archive that is the last 20+ years of music to play alongside current and unreleased material from his contemporaries as well as the burgeoning Hit and Hope imprint, which he co-runs. Klic's most recent mix was his vinyl only mix for Hometaping:
Medlar appeared for the first time in June with 'Terrell', immediately cementing his place as a producer within the record boxes of many of the major players in the deep house scene. In 2012 he will continue to release original material exclusively through Wolf Music Recordings, and his demand as a remixer is already apparent, with reworks penned for release on Foto, Kolour, 4th Wave & Join the Dots over the coming months. A recent Medlar Mix for Fairlight at Stealth Nottingham showcases his talents:
Bruno was praised as a young talent, embraced by so many as the new star to look out for, and after releasing on labels such as Terrain Ahead, Spagat Music, Container and Man Make Music (and generating a great buzz on the internet as a result) nothing was left to prove. As a personal challenge, he moved to London where he now spends his days producing music on the street, telling the stories of all the people he sees with a 4x4 beat and deep punchy basslines, Bruno explores mainly the house aesthetics in brainy tracks, wisely composed, is fast, slow, rough and smooth.
