Those of you that attended SSW6 and paid a deposit on the same accommodation for SSW7 really need to think about settling up the remainder of you accommodation monies please. We have been holding some units for six months now and as four berths in particular are thin on the ground, we need to finalise your paperwork. REMEMBER, you can buy your passes up to a week before SSW7, which will help you spread the cost over a whole year.
We welcome Boogie Café DJ duo Alex Dinham and Jimmy The Twin to our line up for a Boogie Café take over at SSW7. This Bristol based label is at the arrowhead of the Disco/Nu Disco scene, releasing mighty fine music squarely aimed at the dance floor of those who have a Disco hangover each weekend and simply can’t enough of the frikin’ stuff. It looks as though there is a hefty contingent following the lads up from Bristol and headin’ North to support the guys also, we look forward to them joining the SSW family.
Ecstatic to have Jimpster return to SSW by the way, his slot at SSW4 was one of those moments people still talk about to this day but don’t hold your breath jus’ yet, we still have some surprises up our sleeve for SSW7 and things are gonna get even more interesting.
Lots’ of folk booking from abroad again for SSW this year, including folk from mainland Europe, South Africa, the USA and it looks as though there is possibly a Vietnam attendee too, the SSW word is getting out there internationally again.
Music wise there is loads poppin’, Kodie Blak might be a name that you are aware of from Face Book, he is a renowned music yapper on there and folk literally hang onto his every word and no wonder, he knows his shit inside out. That knowledge has now been put to use in the studio and Kodie is turning out quality Disco/Boogie influenced tunes quicker than Donald Trump is doing U turns on electoral promises. Keep your ear to the ground for ‘Feel The Funk’ and ‘Inside The Triangle’, two tracks that I have been caning of late and Northern Soul fans should pay attention to his rub of ‘Love Is My Secret Weapon’ by Darrow Fletcher titled ‘Keep On Steppin’. It’s been dragged right up to date with a real gritty shuffling groove that might find favour in Modern Rooms and House rooms alike. Love the lil’ keys that ring away in the background and Fletcher’s vocal is… Wellllll is Darrow Fletcher innit!
Jamie Mcshane of Difusion is another prolific Scottish re rub razor and block producer, his Ann Sexton and Coke Escavado edits have been causing road blocks since their vinyl releases on his own label, also entitled Difusion. His percussive heavy rub of Stevie Wonder’s ‘Another Star’ is welcomed too as an alternative version to drop for me after playing Ike Noble’s obscure version of ‘Another Star’ for so long at the Boogie gigs. A full and rounded horn hefty, drum and clap onslaught of a production.
