At the kind invitation of Atom Funk, Wain Records and Atom Funk present a special Northampton edition of Scram.
Scram is a regular dance hosted by Julian Fairshare. Usually held on the last Thursday of the month at Ormside Projects, London.
Julian Fairshare is the founder of the heavy weight Fairshare Unity Sound System. He’s a DJ, vocalist and longstanding collaborator of the great producer Ras Russell. They have many releases out on Nehemiah Sounds and his own Fairshare Unity label.
CP Nailor is a DJ and producer from London known for intricate sets that subtly traverse genres. Intense and up tempo, but always somehow, simultaneously, sleek.
Conrad Pack and DJ Gonz are DJs, producers and the founders of burgeoning Seln Recordings. The label specialises in a murky dub-infused techno. Their sound gives a nod to new-age steppers but is rooted in other worldly darker techno sonics.
Leeway is a DJ, producer and founder of Wain Records. His sound draws on free-tekno, trance and early game music.
From London Northampton is 50 minutes by train and 1.5 hours by coach. From Birmingham its 1 hour by train.
This is a special incarnation of Loose Trax programmed by Meg Woof. Meg Woof is an online editor at The Wire magazine, and radio presenter at Resonance 104.4FM.
November’s Loose Trax includes DJ sets from Ain Bailey, Shamica Ruddock and K2K, plus a live coding performance by Eye Measure.
Ain Bailey is a composer, sound artist and DJ who often explores the dynamic between public and private listening. Her compositions reflect on “silence and absence, architectural urban spaces, and feminist activism”. Bailey is also known for co-founding the Precious Brown clubnight at Soho’s Candy Bar in the late 1990s, then part of a network of queer underground parties in London.
Shamica Ruddock is an interdisciplinary artist and DJ, often working between sound, text and moving image. Their current practice “acknowledges the ways in which Black diasporas are engaged and explored through sound, where sound becomes a form of narrativising often with its own unified system of signifiers“. Recent works include Deciphering A Broken Syntax; a sound installation which presented a composition of time-travelling drum patterns within a listening booth inspired by the calabash gourd fruit.
Katherine Anderson aka K2K is a DJ and producer from Auckland New Zealand, where she was an active DIY party organiser and promoter. Now based in London, her regular two-hour slots on Balamii radio span progressive house, trance, techno, and more.
Eye Measure is an experimental artist and curator working with algorithmic composition and creative coding. They are an active part of the TOPLAP/live coding community, performing regularly in London and beyond.
