Over the last couple of winters myself and Phil Moody have been locked in the studio whittling away making alot of music. The first of these to be released comes on the ever lovely and popular Audio Parallax. The music released on this label is always of a very high standard so we were very happy to join such ranks. We’ve also recruited the local and brilliant talents of Last Waltz, 6th Finger and NY*AK to help out on the remix front and all deliver superbly.
A mention was also given to the EP and 6th Finger remix by our fine friends Feelmybicep here.

After the success of our opening party with Cottam et al. We’re back this autumn this time in the cozy confinements of the Dens backroom, the Kitchen, with young upstarts Bicep. This is there first trip to the northeast so we hope to make it a special one indeed.

Bicep – Biography
Bicep are a duo that hail from Belfast, brought together through a common obsession with all things analog. Their blog, Feel My Bicep, has grown to be the first port of call for those searching for cutting-edge and hard-to-find disco (nu and old) / chicago-house / detroit techno / italo / edits and the like. Growing with an amalgamation of jazz, rock and funk helped Bicep form an obscure approach and understanding of music. After each picking up a pair of Technics turntables in their early teens, Andy and Matt set about collecting records and experimenting to find their own style. Skip forward several years and countless DJ gigs and they realized they needed to make their own brand- succumbing to, as Bicep describe it, “80s inspired analog house“
Their first 12″ on Citizen Kane’s Ghost town records sold out within a week gaining worldwide support, whilst their debut on New York’s Throne of Blood records, was among the most downloaded tracks on xlr8r.com (currently still highest rated) topped the charts on boomkat.com, and also made Tim Sweeney’s Favorite LP’s and Singles list over at Beats In Space!
In addition to a busy schedule producing original tracks (look out for Bicep’s EP2 coming early 2011 on Throne of Blood, and forthcoming releases on Mystery Meat and a host of other labels), remixing, and DJing around Europe, Asia, and the US, Bicep along with their co-pilot Rory find time to update their, FEELMYBICEP.com, providing a window into the singular aesthetic that is Bicep.
Here’s some recent mixes by the boys
HOT TUB JAMZ MIX
8, Neville Street, NE1 5EN Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
The Kitchen is the 2nd room of the underground club, The Den, which is in the heart of Newcastle. For this special night, we are not opening the main room, but looking for a more intimate party.
The Kitchen would not look out of place in Berlin, London or Leeds. Just like Public Life in London, the kitchen is an unique venue which is small but perfectly formed atmospheric room which has 3 redlights and the decks set up on a Fridge.
