INTRODUCING | CHAPTER 24

chapter 24

CHAPTER 24 is a new melodic house and techno record label bringing you high quality music, art and verse with heart and soul above all else. We reckon they’ve got pretty smooth taste (like us) and we really like their style.

Gather Round…Soul Button, on Saturday 20th December, is the first in a series of club nights hosted by the label. As founder of the exciting Berlin-based label Steyoyoke, SOUL BUTTON has been responsible for a series of brilliant releases with a signature sound, finding increasing international acclaim due to the sheer quality of the music he is putting out, time after time. The night will be a chance for house music lovers to get together to hear talented label artists set the scene, building a platform for the headliner to spin us a tale. The first Gather Round is a return to the spiritual home of the London club scene, The Star of Kings, a great club venue equipped with a Funktion One sound system.

As it’s almost Christmas, Chapter 24 will be donating all their profits from ticket sales to the Single Homeless Project (SHP), a charity for homeless and vulnerable people in London. Spread the festive cheer! – tickets are a very reasonable £10 so grab one now here

Ahead of his headline appearance at Gather Round, Soul Button has put together a wonderful contribution to Chapter 24’s Telling Tales series of podcasts. This edition takes the listener on a journey from drama and torment, to suspense, settlement and newfound resolve. Soul Button invites us to step into his world and live the story with him, every step of the way.

 

LOMAX RADIO | GERTIE

lomax radio

Lomax Radio comes from our very talented friends Gertie. It’s an outlet for their recorded sets and will also feature podcasts and live sets from their favourite artists. They say this:

“The sound policy will encompass the full spectrum of club orientated Techno. Lomax isn’t for the chin strokers or those who wish to discuss the intricacies of the genre, its for those who leave their ego aside and love to immerse themselves in a moment. We hope to be able to bring a small piece of that mindset direct to you, wherever you may be listening from.”

Their first offering ‘LR001′ showcases some mean-ass dance floor killers; that Whyt Noyz remix! It’s an energetic mix from the duo that showcases their awesome taste in bloody good techno. We were fist pumping the air for the whole duration; 55 minutes of listening time extremely well spent. Stick it on below.

WUNDERKAMMER: LOVE PODCAST SERIES MIXED BY BLOND:ISH

blondish podcast

This mix from Blond:ish for Wunderkammer is getting us through Monday morning with ease. It’s a mellow selection of ‘ambient:ish’ cuts, still retaining the duo’s trademark tough-edge; it wouldn’t sound out of place as an indie film soundtrack. The tracks are pulled together with a big helping of l.o.v.e. and by the end you’ll be warmed up for your week. There’s a download link too – a good one for your collection.

SANKEYS WORLDWIDE RADIO HOSTED BY DARIUS SYROSSIAN

Sankeys Radio

It was recently announced that Tribal Sessions will be back at Sankeys Ibiza on Wednesdays from mid-May. This is very very good news for lovers of underground house. To get us warmed up, resident Darius Syrossian is hosting a monthly show on Sankeys Radio, ‘Sankeys Worldwide’, which features a mini-mix from Darius, some dancefloor fillers ‘Basement Bombs’, an interview with a house-hottie ‘Soap Box DJ’, some hand selected unsigned talent and a spin session with a guest dj matey. I have just listened to Episode 003 and am really impressed. It’s a perfectly packaged show and 1hr 40mins of your listening time thoroughly well spent. In this particular episode our buddies Soul Unbroken & Leousi have been selected for ‘Unsigned Talent’ with their track ‘Semper’ and it’s a bloody belter. Love that. Other big glorious tracks come in the form of Cera Alba ‘Zeno’s Paradox (Inxec vs. Droog Remix)’, how have I not heard this one before it’s a delight!, and future classic Harvey McKay ‘Lost’.

I enjoyed this show so much that I am now going to listen to episodes 001 and 002 back-to-back! Get involved.

We have a super special set selector for you today from Aidan Doherty, the guy behind London techno night ‘Warm Up’ which will be supporting the Max Cooper Album Launch Party on April 5th at London’s Crucifix Lanes.  Ahead of this Aidan has pulled together an hour long mix of emotional techno which is pure melodic bliss.  The mix will give you an idea of the sound Warm Up will be bringing to the Max Cooper night and will transport you to a dreamy, minimal world where techno seeps into you emotions.  Or something along those lines – it’s a corker of a mix!  Enjoy.
