While we should be soaking up the splendour of sun, sea & sand in South Africa, as we find ourselves rather languishing in London, we swap to snow for our International Special Focus, honing in on The European Gay Ski Week that brings together a bevy of brilliant clubbing brands in a seven day symphony of scintillating sounds.
Having lived in the Southern hemisphere for a sizable slice of our informative teenage & early adult years, we quickly acclimatised ourselves to the heat of the South African Highveld, Johannesburg our home city that, despite not having the sea & the sand on its doorstep, had sun in virtually year round abundance. And on the odd occasions when the weather was wet & inclement, we soon realised that we had an adverse affinity to the damp, the cold and the lack of sunshine, snow not even coming into the equation, we continuing to crave the heat, the sun and, with our folks now based on the natal north coast along with friends of ours in Cape Town, both the sea & the sand. Yet, as we found ourselves laying our hat in London, we have had to endure some pretty awful winters, not least this current one which is fighting off the spring, just last week we suffering snow on our streets and this is March for heaven’s sake. But while we make no secret of our hatred for the cold and everything that comes with it, when it comes to skiing, we accept that many others savour the wonderful white stuff and when on the slopes of the Alps or wherever it may be, not only report back that the sun can shine bright, but with the proper preparation & clothing, it can actually be a warming experience full of excitable enjoyment. However, the thought of spending a day, let alone a week staring at snowy slopes leaves us literally cold, although in casting this adversity aside, we find ourselves not only previewing but recommending the forthcoming European Gay Ski Week.
But before we extol the virtues of this year’s weeklong event which kicks off on the Alpe d’Huez ski resort this Saturday (16th March), marking the 5th Anniversary of the annual event, we thought we would share a slice or two of the history of The European Gay Ski Week (EGSW), the team behind it all telling us that “…founded in 2008, year one of EGSW took place in Tignes, France in March 2009 boasting a promising yet relatively small 200 attendees, artists including Andy Bell from Erasure and Soul II Soul part of proceedings. Proving a popular ski area and resort and with clubbing parties in the evenings upping the offer, guests came back in even larger numbers. Year two almost doubled in numbers to 370 and doubling again in 2010 European Gay Ski Week had become the fastest growing and most popular gay ski week in Europe. By this time its reputation was growing throughout the industry as well and the roll call of clubs and D.J.’s that were participating in the event were beginning to read like who’s who of gay clubbing from Europe and beyond. Amongst those who joined EGSW were internationally renowned D.J./Producers Steven Redant, Leomeo & Pagano, while clubbing brands Trade & La Demence were involved. In 2011, EGSW decided it wanted to treat it’s attendees to a new resort, Alpe d’Huez as this yearly event was becoming such a huge success, with its now 1000+ attendees, and the ever-increasing list of big-named artists. EGSW also knew it had found a resort that could further cater for its revellers needs. Alpe d’Huez transforming itself into a gay-town for one week every year, while in 2012, every club, restaurant, bar, and venue wanted a piece of the EGSW action….”
So that brings you pretty much up to date with EGSW which, this year, looks bigger and better than ever with a bevy of clubbing brands from across Europe getting involved, Spain’s WE Party, Amsterdam amazer Rapido, Brussels based La Demence, London’s Lovechild, Paris’s Scream & associated LAB party, Berlin based Greenkomm, Dutch beefy brand Bear Necessity & NYC founded fetish brand Hustlball all involved, making for the biggest clubbing collective yet, boosted even further by D.J./Producer Psagano’s own club brand Deviate. And the D.J. line up is equally impressive, Steven Redant flying the La Demence flag, Pagano clearly steering Deviate, while other stars of the scene heading to the snowy ski slopes include Paul Heron, Oliver M, Ben Manson, Tony English, Alessandro Londra & Steve Thomas, with plenty more on the cards but yet to be announced, while there will be a host of drag queens, performers & artists involved in this fabulous festival that is fast becoming more about the clubbing which in terms of balance is fast catching up the skiing in the scales stakes. And for those that love either aspects of entertainment, EGSW is certainly an enthralling event & festival, the numbers of attendees this year already considerably higher than last, perhaps an indication of its pluming popularity, while much of the actual detail remains under wraps, with no event pages to refer you to, while having scoured their Facebook page at https://facebook.com/EuropeanGaySkiWeek, it is clear, apart from attendees who will be privy to all the party details, we are left with the artwork jigsaw pieces to try put together the programme, although with no particular dates posted our cause is all but lost.
That said, if you are one of the 1200 heading to the Alpe d’Huez this coming Saturday (16th march), you can be guaranteed both superb skiing & captivating clubbing each day & night of this weeklong festival frolic and EGSW’s eleven strong support team & management members Kevin Millins & Simon Patrick will give you the warmest of welcomes, meaning while we won’t be swapping sun, sea & sand for the ski slopes & snow anytime soon, this 5th anniversary of all things skiing & clubbing gets our fabulous thumbs up.

We have previewed, we focussed and now we Extra Bite on the hot off the press detail of the latest and confirmed D.J. line-up across the three sidings dances spaces, while recapping on all the dynamic detail ahead of tomorrow night’s launch of new clubbing combo, This Is Prohibition and its “Love Resurrection” event.
Cutting to the chase and following on from our Preview, “Speeding Out Of The Sidings” & our Weekend Focus Special, “Sidings Showtime”, both well worth a read via direct short links http://discomatt.com/web/?p=6917 & http://discomatt.com/web/?p=7093 respectively, we thought we would make it a hat trick of posts ahead of the launch of new clubbing combo, This Is Prohibition, tomorrow night (Sat 16th Feb) by bringing you the lasts and confirmed D.J. line up across the three dances spaces of The Sidings Warehouse, the host venue for this “Love Resurrection” event.
So without further ado, lets dive straight in, although quickly recap on the brands involved in this new creative clubbing combo, which as the promoter behind this new concept, Alex Erfan explains, “…clubbing legends from across Europe are getting together as one to bring you a warehouse multiplex for drinking, dancing and socialising on this special day…” he adding, “…it’s great to work with other promoters & clubs like Bear Necessity and & Queer Nation again, while I am excited to see what Butch will bring on this night of love and togetherness…”. And so to re-iterate on those brands, This Is Prohibition combines the legendary Queer Nation on its first outing in over twelve months, Bear Necessity, which comes out of its London hibernation to barnstorm this bash, as well as new manly meet, Butch. But there is a fourth and with “…love & resurrection very much be in the air…” Alex’s own brilliant brand, Lovechild just had to be involved and makes up the main room space in this four spaced sidings showtime spectacle.
To the D.J. line up for each space now and first to the Lovechild room, which showcases some of the best in its residency team, Tony Bruno kicking off proceedings from 10.30 p.m., entertaining the special pre-party guests to a cool & seductive set of sounds, before increasing the tech & trance-tastic pace from 11.30 p.m. when This Is Prohibition opens proper. Then at midnight, Alex is thrilled to present special international guest D.J./producer, Oliver M, who has jetted in from his new home base in Berlin especially for the vent and is sure to ignite the party with plumes of uplifting vocal & heady heavenly house in a set we cannot wait to hear, an advance trip to http://djoliverm.podomatic.com/entry/2013-01-27T12_18_31-08_00 giving you a “Lovechild” flavour of what to expect from his performance. Then at 1.30 a.m., resident D.J. Alessandro Londra takes to the decks, no doubt turning up the tech come tribal heat a little as the Lovechild dancers & porn stars hits the stage & podiums, while Tony English is, for us, the headline act, he holding the house music reigns from 2.30 a.m. till 4 and a performance that will also include the appearance of special P.A. Abigail Bailey, performing her new track “Love Resurrection”, one recorded with Tony himself and a real highlight of this happening for sure. The, as if that wasn’t enough, the mighty Alan K polishes off the night with a storming set for sure, this towering talent currently best known for the terrific Trinity, along with previous halcyon & heavenly days delighting at Beyond, the icing on this “Love Resurrection” cake, his latest Trinity podcast well worth a listen at http://djalank.podomatic.com/entry/2012-10-20T14_11_40-07_00.
But there are three other brands & rooms well worth considering too, not least Bear Necessity (BN), which sports terrific talents Micky Galliano & Sharon O Love, both familiar players for BN both here in London and internationally, while Micky also plays right across his home country of Italy, Sharon a true international, having scored a string of guest slots across Europe as well as touring Mexico & South America. So, with Micky taking charge first from 11.30 p.m. till 2, Sharon then hits the decks after, while the amazing Alessandro Londra, switches from Lovechild to BN to complete the act from 4,30 a.m. We also have Queer nation too, Patrick Lilley’s legendary club that makes a welcome return to the scene its “…speakeasy – a secret club within a club…” sporting the brilliant and equally legendary Jeffrey Hinton, along with recent resident Mista Pierre and special guest Ben Jamin, Ben taking up the musical mantle first from 11.30 p.m., while Mista Pierre hits the decks from 2 till 4, Jeffrey then making the choice of where to be from 4 a.m. very tricky indeed. And while we haven’t been entered into the sound plans for Butch, who will host the fourth bar space, we suspect that promoter Manu Cartagenero is sure to have a selection of spinning stars up his sleeve.
Well that’s the D.J. news, now let’s recap on the detail of This Is Prohibition “Love Resurrection” event, which takes place tomorrow night Saturday (16th February) at the Sidings Warehouse in Southwark (51-53 Southwark St., London SE1), doors opening at 11.30 p.m. and this Valentine’s event running through to a planned 6 a.m. finish, advance tickets on sale via Soho outlets Prowler, Clone Zone & Fifty Dean as well as online at http://clubtickets.com/gb/2013-02/16/this-is-prohibition, the early bird tickets now sold out, while the standard £10 options remain extremely good value for money and fit the ethos of This Is Prohibition perfectly. And what’s more, the team will be keeping the door entry price down too, this on top of the extremely reasonable bar prices, coatcheck and other costs that make this exceptional event a true budget busting bash, the team quite rightly boasting that This Is Prohibition is “… going to be social, sexy, beery and we will dance till dawn…” adding “…with Bear Necessity coming out of hibernation and Queer Nation first event in 12 months it really is a club resurrection for love on this night of love…” as well as reaffirming that “…all the gay tribes are welcome from bear to muscle boys with their best girlfriends to homo hip happener’s fans of New York house, all with the right love of clubbing attitude…”.
So, with The Sidings Warehouse signal showing green for go, This Is Prohibition & its “Love Resurrection” Valentine’s event is set to storm the scene we in pole position to report & review on all the action, right from well as a special guest pre-party through the whole event itself, so if you see us, please come say hi, while remembering that to “Be There!” you need to “Go There!” so see you on the This Is Prohibition dancefloor. (DISCO MATT)
With love and resurrection very much in the air this Valentine’s weekend, we follow on from our preview “Speeding Out Of The Sidings” with a further detailed look at new clubbing collaborative combo, This Is Prohibition, which makes its first sidings showtime splash on the scene this Saturday with its “Love Resurrection” event.
After what can only be described as a lack lustre January on the capitals clubbing circuit, it seems February has really sprung into life and while the weather may not be reminiscent of spring, the new clubbing seeds & shoots are certainly injecting life into a scene that has been crying out for a change to the same old same old. Indeed with new club Baked, now BakeBox, leading the way, Swallow & Butch quickly following and even Deelooded shaking up the scene with a move out east, there has been plenty for party goers to get their teeth into, while it seems that this new blood has awakened experienced hands too, although the very idea of propelling & promoting a new proposition that has the names “Manic & “Panic” in them seems, to us at least, quite preposterous. However, we can be gratified with the much more palatable prospect of a new clubbing combo that brings together a bevy of brilliant brands under one roof, echoing the excellence of previous projects such as Famous Five, Universe and even As One, the new kid on the collaborative clubbing block very much a resurrection of familiars of old making for a compelling new combination that breathes equally new life into a concept that never fails to captivate clubbers.
This Is Prohibition is the brainchild of one Alex Erfan, the man behind brands such as Salvation & Lovechild and who was intrinsically involved in bringing the now massive WE Party to London, Alex’s achievements over the years speak for themselves, a host of other international parties playing out here in the capital due in no part to his involvement, Hustlaball probably the most notable of all. However, in terms of clubbing combo’s Alex can be credited with launching & driving what was a soaring success story that was As One while he was the driving force behind the massive London Global Dance Festival that, in a string of showings over one weekend back in 2010, captivated the capital, boasting international brands & D.J.’s galore, the mere mention of clubs Muccassassina, Propaganda, This Is Ibiza, Delice, Scream, Infinita, & Nightkomm, along with D.J.’s Danny Verde, Phil Romano, Steven Redant, Ana Paula, Ben Manson, Ian Gomez, & Chris Bekker speaking volumes of their own but testament to the contact & networking skills that Mr Erfan has built his reputation on over the years. Indeed, with his connections many international outings, including Delice Dream & The European Gay Ski Week, as well as having toured both Salvation & Lovechild across Europe & beyond, bring brands and being at the centre of collaborations seems to be in his blood, hence is desire to breathe new life into a concept which, with the faltering of As One, seemed to be hitting the buffers.
So let’s recap on The Is Prohibition, both as a concept and as a collaboration, the name itself coming from the period of time in the US during the 1920’s/30’s when there was a national ban on the production, transportation and sale of alcohol, although come Saturday it will be a prohibition of a different kind, the only prohibition being on extortionate drinks prices, as Alex neatly puts it, “…for those seeking alcohol, it will be free flowing on the night, but at what we like to call fair “prohibition” style prices…”. Indeed, while prohibition is the name, it’s very much not the game in terms of restriction on the male or female mix, Mr Erfan keen to stress that “…all the gay tribes are welcome from bear to muscle boys with their best girlfriends to homo thugs and fans of New York house, all with the right love of clubbing attitude…” also saying “…it’s going to be social, sexy, beery and we will dance till dawn…”. And when you take a look at the brands & clubs Alex has brought together, you will see that this will be one pulsating party that has pretty much something for everyone, the fulsome foursome that is Lovechild, Bear Necessity, Queer Nation & Butch sure to each add their own sparkle on the combinative spotlight that will shine bright on this “Love Resurrection” event this Saturday. As for each individual element, well Lovechild makes a welcome return to London on the back of a season of Saturday’s that scored a number of successes over its three year history, while its European excursions have been equally impressive, the combination of seductiveness & showtime simply superb, while Patrick Lilley’s Queer Nation pretty much speaks for itself, reigning an alternative supreme for well over ten years, serving up a heady music mixture of house, rnb, pop & hip hop to a fervent fan base of followers & more. Then, with Bear Necessity, the international brand that once again makes its mark on London, together with new clubbing boy Butch, we have the macho male element to balance against the other two, this combo sure to pull in a marvellous mixture of men & women all looking to party at Prohibition with no inhibitions or indeed prohibitions.
To the music now and This Is Prohibition brings together some simply superb talent from across the capitals clubbing circuit, as well as international players landing on London especially for this creative combo, a terrific ten that while be flying their respective flags for the four brands, Alex thrilled to announce the inclusion of Alan K in the line-up, a man whose repertoire has included Beyond, Gravity, A:M and Later, while the mighty monthly Monday meet Trinity is a big part of his playing package too, recent developments down Vauxhall way having seen Alan spearhead a new direction for venue Covert (more to come on that in a spate feature), while who can forget that stunning set for Lovechild a couple of years ago, when he pretty much stole the show. So with Alan spinning for Lovechild, he will join regular residents Alessandro Londra and the two Tony’s, Messrs Bruno & English and special guest Oliver M, making for a Lovechild room of majestic music you won’t want to miss, while Bear Necessity forms the other big space, Micky Galliano & Sharon O Love flying the flag here. As for Queer Nation, well it wouldn’t be the same without Jeffrey Hinton who heads up a team that includes Mista Pierre & special guest Ben Jamin, while a little birdie tells me that promoter Patrick Lilley might even jump on the decks too, hosts Mark-Ashley Dupe & Clington Forbes sure to keep the party pace pumping all night. Then the final combo piece is Butch, who will be hosting the manly Butch Bar for the beer drinking men, promoter Manu Cartagenero sure to have a selection of spinning stars up his sleeve, while the club plays host to the “official” This Is Prohibition pre-party tomorrow night (Thurs 14th Feb), more info on this out at https://facebook.com/events/124661317711579/.
However, the centre piece of this sidings showtime spectacle will be the P.A. performance from Abigail Bailey, a performer that hit the big time back in 2005 with the huge house hit “I Just Can’t Get Enough”, while Chris Lake’s “Changes”, Soul Central’s “Time After Time” and another huge house hit “Something On Your Mind” all have Abigail’s strong vocal influence. And while she is also a respected D.J., having headlined many club events both in the U.K. and internationally, it is her production work that still plays a major part in her life, with no less than thirty single/EP releases to date, “Touch Me” & “Breath Away” from 2009 two of our favourites, while her recent studio work with Nick Tcherniak produced the download chart topping “Sundance”, this on top of releases on labels such as MOS, Defected, Toolroom and Pacha Records, there is no doubting both Abigail’s production pedigree and pulling power. So, having worked in on a new track with Pacha’s own Tony English, This Is Prohibition is thrilled to premiere & showcase the result, the new single, “Love Resurrection”, getting on exclusive live performance airing on Saturday and one we cannot wait to both hear & see, while we are sure she will also treat us to a couple of classics from her hoard of hits. Ms Bailey aside, This Is Prohibition will be rolling out plenty of performance eye candy in the form of a sexy stud troupe from the Alphamale stable, porn star Marco Sessions one of the many macho males on stage both in the Lovechild & Bear Necessity rooms, while we are also promised with a deluge of drop dead gorgeous dancers, special effects & lighting to ignite this warehouse style clubbing combo which takes place at the newly formed venue, The Sidings Warehouse (formerly The Arches), one which has a real clubbing heritage, having been the home to XXL, as well as hosting the legendary 18th & 20th birthday bashes for the mother of clubbing, Trade.
So to the detail and This Is Prohibition “Love Resurrection” event, which brings together brands Lovechild, Bear Necessity, Queer Nation & Butch, takes place this Saturday (16th February) at the Sidings Warehouse in Southwark (51-53 Southwark St., London SE1), doors opening at 11.30 p.m. and this Valentine’s event running through to a planned 6 a.m. finish, advance tickets on sale via Soho outlets Prowler, Clone Zone & Fifty Dean as well as online at http://clubtickets.com/gb/2013-02/16/this-is-prohibition, the early bird tickets now sold out, while the standard £10 options remain extremely good value for money and fit the ethos of This Is Prohibition perfectly and, what’s more, the team will be keeping the door entry price down too, this on top of the extremely reasonable bar prices, coatcheck and other costs that make this exceptional event a true budget busting bash, the team quite rightly boasting that This Is Prohibition is “… going to be social, sexy, beery and we will dance till dawn…” adding “…with Bear Necessity coming out of hibernation and Queer Nation first event in 12 months it really is a club resurrection for love on this night of love…” as well as reaffirming that “…all the gay tribes are welcome from bear to muscle boys with their best girlfriends to homo hip happener’s fans of New York house, all with the right love of clubbing attitude…”. And with a reminder of the official pre-party hosted by Butch at East Bloc starts the This Is Prohibition ball rolling tomorrow night (Thurs 14th Feb), as well as a special guest, pre-party ahead on the event itself on Saturday from 10.30 p.m., more information available via the This Is Prohibition page at https://facebook.com/ThisIsProhibition.
So, as we fight off a nasty viral bug that has derailed our devotions, this marks our own speeding from the sidings and with best foot forward we will be at the centre of this superb sidings showtime spectacle, so if you see us out on Saturday, then come say hi, but regardless of us, we reckon that This Is Prohibition is a must meet meaning you should definitely “Go There! Be There! (DISCO MATT)

With this exceptional mid-week meet seemingly going from strength to strength, Disco Matt sticks to what is fast becoming a Wednesday tradition, as he points his “Pick of The Day” finger in the direction of Gigolo, its “Service” further info a “Pick Of The Day” banner click away opposite or an image click below, while DM delves a little deeper with his dinky delectation beneath
With Wednesday’s still firmly in the “school night” category for us, it is very rare to find us stepping out on the scene these days, while given the inside information we are getting on Gigolo, there are plenty party heads that shun school in favour of generous scoops of soiree socialising & a little sauce on the side, which this mid-week meet has in abundance. And in the hands of promoters David & L.a. Hart, Gigolo’s success is pretty much assured, the heady cocktail of magnificent music, heavenly hunks & sumptuous surrounds, make it a wonderfully winning formula & one host venue The Shadow Lounge & its team are proud to be a part of. But with so much more to this tremendous night on the town, it is little wonder that it continues to find itself on our “Pick Of The Day” pedestal, this week being no exception, we delving into & then dicing up the detail of this “Service” event
So, Gigolo “Service” is sizing up this week in celebration of host venue Shadow Lounge’s 11th birthday, by jetting in favourite porn star Marco Sessions, along with Lucas Entertainment’s Edji Da Silva as well as special porn star guest, Samuel Colt, all three not only performing on stage, but entertaining you lucky ones that get into the live X rated photo-shoot or into a private booth with these muscle-bound beefcakes. But it’s not all about the porn stars, as the music plays a big part too, this week seeing new & rising D.J. talent, Aamyko, who takes up the first slot, no doubt delivering plenty of “…high energy slut jams…”, while experienced international D.J./Producer, Oliver M follows with his own blend of sexy beats & euro style track treats. And if all that wasn’t enough, then you can tuck into a special Gigolo cocktail (we have tried them & they are yummy) for just a fiver & that gets you entry into the XXX photo-shoot we deluded to earlier, while its always worth either “…stripping right down or dressing right up…” as this could mean you become one of the “Hot 20”, a special package served up by Gigolo, where you , along with your pals can get into the club for free and, what’s more, the winner out of the 20, gets “…down and dirrrty…” with the Gigolo porno-stars in their own private booth with VIP entry & drinks!
So, suffice to say, for a marvellous mid-week treat, we cannot think or recommend a better place to be than at Gigolo, “Service” taking place tonight (Wed 11th July) at the Shadow Lounge in Soho, doors opening at 10 p.m. & the club running through until 3 a.m., entry just £8 on the door, while for concessions & “I Am Soho” card holders, it’s a mere £5.

Having been at sea for a mother hen of days while casting his picks net across a trio of European events, Disco Matt is pleased as punch to be back in the capital clubbing circuit grove, as he lands on Soho, the Shadow Lounge & Gigolo’s “Naked” event as his pick of the day. Taking place tonight (Wed 23rd May), DM delights on the detail of this mid week meet, all just a banner selection opposite or an image click below, while he focuses on guest D.J. Oliver M beneath.
To say that Oliver M is simply a D.J. is doing this genial German a complete injustice, as there are so many strings to this man’s bow, producer & promoter just two, the influences he has & the contacts he has established second to none, all this making him a big name across the global clubbing scene. So, with a propelling prologue like that, what has made Mr Mohns so mighty? Well, let’s look at one of those bow strings for a start, as Oliver was right at the centre of the so-called Spanish Armada invasion of London back in 2006, when Barcelona bred brand Matinee made its first significant splash on the scene here, Oliver at the helm for well close on four years & seeing it through some of its most successful phases, including homes Area, Fabric, Colosseum & Cable. Yet, while his parting with Matinee was a tormented one, he came out the other side, a short season with an own grown brand, matador, spring boarding him to a premiership with Saturday morning afterhours club, A:M, while his promotions credentials have stretched to a whole series of one-off events too, this insatiable appetite for the promotions game still alive & kicking, even if the assumption of the salvation London helm resulted from the untimely & still shocking premature passing of his very close friend Steve Elliot.
But while club promotions is a real passion of his, music remains at the centre of his soul & one that was nurtured from a relatively young age from his born base of Hamburg, his first D.J. gig a favour for a friend, although what a friend, as Oliver stepped into the shoes of one Boris Dlugosh (of Moloko, “Sing It Back” fame) back in 1987 &, as a D.J. has never looked back. With a whole host of parties, residencies & guest slots across Europe, brands he has touched including GreenKomm, NightControl, Muccassassina, &, probably one of his most notable, La Demence, it was his move to Barcelona that developed his associations with The Matinee Group, his connections & his D.J.’ing also extending to La Troya & Space in Ibiza, a transition in his music style from the harder techno trance that were dominating the German clubbing scene of the time, to the more Balearic euro-beat sound that has since brought him world renowned success & status as a D.J./Producer. Indeed, away from the live decks, Oliver’s studio productions have found favour across Europe, his tracks “Paramount” & “Strings of Motion” (one of our favourites & well worth a listen as well as an addition to your collection by going to http://djoliverm.com/news/dj-oliver-m-and-jean-philip-strings-of-motion-original-mix/) were propelled by record label Sorry Shoes, one headed up by close friend Mike Kelly, while his tow latest tracks “Groovebird 2012” & “Restless In Ibiza” are due for release very soon.
So, having very much made a name for himself across Europe, London was always going to play a part in his life & moving here in 2006 brought that switch from full time D.J.’ing to club promotions and one that further enhanced his networking & connections across the global scene, Oliver using his contacts to bring a whole host of internationally renowned D.J.’s to the capitals clubbing circuit, a situation that continued when he held sway with A:M, international names he introduced including Steven Redant, Ben Manson, Danny Verde, & Andrei Stan, while London based stars Brent Nicholls, Paul Heron, Pagano, Pier Morrocco, & Guy Williams were major features of his parties & events. However, while his own D.J. career during the matinee & A:M days was sacrificed, returning to the decks was inevitable & both 2011 & 2012 so far have proven hugely successful for Oliver, dates right across Europe, not least for La Demence & GreenKomm, this complimented by tours dates of Mexico, Brazil & The US, as well as Sydney & a string of upcoming pride events that means he is practically living out of a suitcase, jetting here, there & everywhere. And, his assumption of the Salvation Group promoter position, this brand truly international, is likely to keep that suitcase opening & closing for a long time to come, a glance through his own website at http://djoliverm.com giving you an impressive indication of just how busy Mr Mohns is these days.
But what of London in all this?, Well the capital remains his base and a good one at that, as guest slots for bars Rupert St & Barcode remain a feature, while naturally tonight marks another appearance for Gigolo, Oliver very much part of the roving residency team & an individual that promoters David & L.a. Hart are chuffed to have on board, not least due to his impressive C.V. & credentials above. And with his upcoming involvement with the “Summer Fusion” event in Southwark over the diamond jubilee weekend next, of which Salvation will form a major part, Oliver will be able to, at least temporarily, unpack that suitcase, although not before popping across to his beloved La Demence for their “Tattoo” event this Sunday, all this amounting to a whole host of opportunities to savour a set of his, although for those of you not fortunate enough make it, either down to Gigolo, across to Brussels or over to Shoreditch, then you can do the next best thing & proceed to his podcast page where you will find a whole host of heavenly house mixes that shout the Oliver style of sound, uplifting, euphoric, Euro/Balearic beats that have achieved his status as the most popular D.J. on clubbing website SeenQueen, while also attaining him the prominent position as D.J. of the week this week, for scene magazine Q.X. International. But what mix to choose?, Well, if we were to lay our hat on one, it would be his “Salvation – A Year In Dance”, recorded at the end of 2011 & is jam packed with, as Oliver aptly put it “…anthems & cool happy hands in the air tracks…”, one symptomatic of both his sound style & his delightful demeanour, so one well worth adding to your collection by going to direct link http://djoliverm.podomatic.com/entry/2012-01-05T16_36_23-08_00, while for a flavour of his disco drenched set at Gigolo, sort out their Souncloud site, were you will find his recording from September last at http://soundcloud.com/gigolo-disco/gigolo-disco-sessions-mix-8-dj.
So, with a 2012 that seems to be going from strength to strength for this genial German, the future is certainly looking bright & so O, that in this phrase would normally stand for “Orange, perhaps in fact standing for Oliver, of the Mohns variety. (DISCO MATT)
It’s the middle of the week, which can only mean one thing, yes it’s time for some more dirty disco dancing & debauchery as Gigolo goes all “Stud” on tonight (Wed 9th May) at the Shadow Lounge in Soho, thus making it to DM’s pick of the day, the event detail a banner click away opposite or an image click below, while DM drip feeds on the D.J.’s & L.a. Hart on the debauchery beneath
DM says of the Gigolo “Stud” D.J.’s…
Gigolo certainly seems to attract plenty of fresh faced talent that some other clubs & brands tend to overlook, although in boosting their already extensive roving residency team with brilliant Brazilian Doug Silva, they have found a gorgeous gem (and yes he has the looks too), this tremendous talent having played at some pretty big events in his relatively short career, brands including Beyond, Casalatina, Matinee & Popcorn, so taking in venues Fire, Area & heaven, while residency/guest slots have extended to Ku-Bar, the Edge, Rupert St & our Wardour St wonder’s Profile & Lo-Profile. And with a set of compilations to back up these live performances, Doug is definitely a huge asset to the Gigolo team, his mix of uplifting & vocal drenched dance, neatly blended with more tech & tribal tunes, that Brazilian background of his coming through in his sound style, a trip to his podcast page at http://douguim.podomatic.com/ ahead of hitting the Gigolo dancefloor with him tonight.
To the other sound stud in this week’s Gigolo & the team look to the experienced hands of German Oliver M who is not only an accomplished D.J., but is pretty nifty in the recording studio too, a whole host of track productions hitting the high notes in download charts across the world, as well as within fellow D.J.’s playlists. And talking of the world, having re-forged his international D.J.’ing career, hardly a weekend goes by when Oliver finds himself at his London base, trips back to his beloved Germany, to other playing hotspots around Europe and to hotter climes like Australia, Brazil & Israel, meaning his international status is well founded. But that status is also evidenced by the considerable club promotions bow that Oliver had held firmly in his hands, having been at the forefront of Matinee coming to London & then riding that successful wave crest for nearly five years. Matinee apart, he has been at the helm of A:M & has staged a number of specialist/one-off events here in London, while his links to international brand Salvation is common knowledge in clubbing circles. So, all in all, Gigolo couldn’t be in more experienced hands, his energetic & sexy house music style, perfectly suited to this bawdy brand, his podcasts very reflective of this & so well worth a visit at http://djoliverm.podomatic.com/.
