Monkey Mafia (DJ Set)
Eddy Temple Morris (Resident)
Jon Carter, one of the ’90s dance scene’s most-important DJ/producers, has rebooted his much-missed Monkey Mafia project, with a cavalcade of new edits and original productions set to be unleashed.
As one of Heavenly Social’s residents, alongside fellow hell-raisers The Chemical Brothers and Richard Fearless (Death In Vegas), Jon quickly acquired a rep for his devastatingly roughneck sets that weren’t afraid to mix everything from tough hip-hop to strobe-lit house and techno. Working under the Monkey Mafia alias, he cut several big beat classics that still stand the test of time today! And now he’s back, with a glance at Carter’s Soundcloud page revealing a selection of tasty new tracks that push his dancehall influences into new terrain.
“The timing seems right,” Carter commented. “I've been making tracks for sets lately — just things I'd like to hear. I've always let my love of dancehall reggae and dub and hip-hop influence my music, and so the tunes were very similar in flavour to Monkey Mafia.”
Jetting in from Ireland is Screendeath aka Ryan Thompson. Arriving in early 2009 with a set of impressive set of remixes, his name began to spread across the internet. Impressive remixes for both Monarchy, We Have Band and Andy Caldwell across the New Year garnered him several ‘one to watch” tags for 2010 then it was back to producing original material. This swiftly led to the “Packback” EP which was quickly snapped up by Fatboy Slim’s Southern Fried imprint after being picked up and played by the likes of Fake Blood, Zinc, Boy 8-Bit and more. Alongside picking up national radio play from luminaries such as Annie Mac , Kissy Sell Out and Jaymo & Andy George, 2011 is already shaping up to surpass this from all angles.
A second EP from Southern Fried deep in the works, several more releases planned on a number of labels soon to be revealed coupled with impressive remixes for The Japanese Popstars and Les Gillettes mean 2011 is Screendeath’s for the taking.
Kry Wolf are fast becoming recognised as one of the UK's big underground players due to their distinctively creative and varied production style and consistently strong releases. The duo are also behind some of the biggest parties ever thrown on the south coast through uber brand Sumo, not to mention putting out some of the freshest new talent on their own label Sounds of Sumo.
Obsessively putting in the studio hours, their productions have ranged from house, garage, tech, funky to experimental as they continually refuse to be pigeon-holed. With names like Zinc, Mary Anne Hobbs, A-Trak, Sub Focus, The Martin Brothers, Mosca, AC Slater, Dave Spoon, Buraka Som Sistema, Lil Silva and Roska dropping their tracks, the word of the Wolf is spreading fast.
Regular residencies at some of the south coast's biggest club nights, a spot at Fabric, two Bestival performances and production work for labels a-plenty, the boys are keeping pretty busy!
Rounding things off every week will be our resident, XFM’s Eddy Temple-Morris. Where do we start? This is a man who has been at the forefront of new music for his entire career. He is host of Xfm’s legendary (10 years running and twice Sony Award nominated) dance-rock crossover radio show, The Remix. With his band Losers he’s remixed everyone from The Prodigy to Placebo, he’s hosted Remix Allnighters at SEOne and Matter and was the first host/resident at the inaugural season of Ibiza Rocks. Eddy has appeared on MTV 2’s Gonzo and all manner of TV and radio shows across the BBC, MTV, Channel 4, ITV, Five and also does the odd voiceover!
In his role championing new music he has discovered the likes of 2manyDJs, Simian Mobile Disco, Kasabian, Justice, Alex Metric, Fenech Soler, Sub Focus, Pendulum (We’ll stop there as this list could go on all day). If ever there was a man born to be Get Loaded resident, it’s Eddy Temple Morris!
