INSTORE SIGNING and Q&A with NORMAN JAY mbe

Yes, yes ya’ll. One of the most legendary UK DJ’s who helped coin the term RARE GROOVE. A term that is really the basis for this record store, and many others.

An artist who has had  a defining effect in bringing together the world of groove under one big happy umbrella. It wasn’t happy in the beginning but now it is – thank the lord! He now has a book out that will guide you through the trip that his life has been, always with THE GOOD TIMES! aka Mr Good Times. Get down early and groove to the sounds of Northside DJs who get the space ready.

FLYING LOTUS INSTORE SIGNING

WOW. What a day. We only got two days heads up that this was going to happen. So happy it did! Fly Lo signed for TWO HOURS straight. The queue stretched PAST the RAINBOW and around the corner of Gertrude Street to Smith Street! DJ’s MIKE GURRIERI and EMELYNE set the mood all night just right. The funky drummer, Paul Gorrie gave us an Acknowledgment of Country and FLY LO started his odyssey! As he finished the signing we played a few unreleased THUNDERCAT joints and got the dancing competition underway. Big thanks to Fly Lo and also to THE OPERATIVES and WARP RECORDS.

Northside Records presents ‘Soulclash’

soulclash-webAfter a weekend of instore madness we’re back with news of more Northside shows! But firstly, a massive thanks to The Seven Ups and The Meltdown, and everyone who came along to support Melbourne soul.

Coming up on Sunday 8th March, Northside and PBS106.7FM  presents ‘Soulclash’ – The Underground Showcase. This is something we’ve talked about for a long time, and we’re very excited to see this become a reality. The first Soulclash has been curated by Northside’s and PSB’s own DJ Manchild (The Breakdown) and will take place at Howler in Brunswick. Heading the line up is Melbourne’s underground microphone fiend Remi, supported as always by Sensible J. This will be the final local show before Remi and J set off on their 2015 European Tour.

The Seven Ups will also take the stage for a super-set of funky afro soul fire. The Seven Ups have been playing shows all over and promise to deliver some of that heavy heavy syncopation that only comes with relentless shows, touring and late nights. Look out.

Taking you further underground, deep below mainstream and into the caverns of outernational soul, hip hop, afro, dancehall, tropical and funk are the Northside DJs. Big Bossman Chris Gill brings the ‘Burn City Soul’ and deep funk flavours, Lewis Cancut and Ms. Butt (Congo Tardis #1) serve up the bass-heavy booty-shaking sounds of the club/favela and beyond, and DJ Manchild and Mr. Rex will mash you up with anything + everything soul, and the shit you never heard before. No chin-scratchers – It’s a party from the get go!

Sunday March 8 is Labour Day weekend, and that means no work for some on Monday. Get down. Tickets are $18+bf (see below). We will have tickets available at Northside soon.

REMI | THE SEVEN UPS | CONGO TARDIS #1 | LEWIS CANCUT
