After missing his gigs at countless festivals this year, Maverick Sabre shall evade me no more. The last on my list of must see artists [except from the mighty Michel Buble], I have just purchased tickets to see Maverick Sabre at 02 Academy Brixton, and I am extremely excited. Adding to what is set to be an incredible evening of musical talent, Ms Dynamite, Daley, and Rudimental are also supporting. Review pending…

Tickets are still available: http://www.o2academybrixton.co.uk/event/40263/maverick-sabre-tickets

Headlining the inaugural Pause is ViVa Music star Darius Syrossian. Having grown up influenced by House legends Kenny Dope and DJ Sneak, Darius has gone on to tour every continent while releasing music  on some of the world’s leading House/Techno labels such as Get Physical, ViVa Music and 8bit. He consistently charts on Beatport and in DJ Mag’s top 100 tracks with efforts like “I Am The Creator Of Jack” and this summer’s “Freaky D” is sure to be a huge Ibiza hit.

His position within the ViVa Music team sees him present a monthly online radio show, including interviews and guest mixes from world renowned artists, going out to listeners in 30 countries across the world. Plus, this summer he releases his own ViVa Music Mix CD!

With one of the biggest selling releases in the history of 2020 Vision, Burnski was hailed as a prodigy upon first surfacing in the mid 00’s. Since then, he has cemented a solid reputation as an artist erring on the deeper side of the dancefloor, releasing consistently excellent music on labels such as Poker Flat, Dessous and Hot Creations.

We also welcome Glimpse. From the early days of his hugely successful ‘Black Series’ through to the groove-laden tech house of ‘Drifting’ on Planet E and, later, fully pursuing the deep and organic take on house via his Crosstown Rebels singles and album – this musical range has gained him the respect of his peers and culminated in two successive nominations in DJ Magazine’s prestigious ‘Best British Producer’ category.

Mysterious duo Waze & Odyssey (PetFood, Southern Fried) bring the best elements of nineties NY house and garage whilst still sounding totally fresh, W&O have seemingly appeared out of nowhere, clocking up their essential debut EP ‘Ah Baby’ on PetFood.

Casino Times are Joe Spencer and Nick Church from Oxford. They’ve been tearing clubs up recently as well as remixing the likes of Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, MJ Cole and Jozif along the way. Ones to watch for summer 2012 and beyond!

Zombiemeat and Raider are currently recovering from a truly epic evening with the original ninja Mr Jaguar Skills, who played last night at the Scala for his Spring 2012 ‘Jaguar Skills and his Amazing Friends’ Tour. DJ Cable and Murkage were the first acts to start us off and they done an almighty job in hyping up the crowd-by 1:00am the main room was heaving and there wasn’t a reveller in sight who was not unleashing elated bass fury into their moves. Anyone who is fan or has already experienced a night with Jaguar Skills can just imagine how much buzz was flowing through the room by the time we were graced with his presence. The Radio 1 mixologist went down an absolute storm with his infamous lightning-quick mixing and uber mash-up skills. It was an aural assault of Dubstep to Drum n Bass, and everything in between, and I can honestly say I have never been part of such extreme dance mayhem. For the first thirty minutes of his two-hour set, we found ourselves being aggressively moshed around all four corners of the modest sized venue. The crowd went mental, and the epicness of his set done nothing for the safety of our internal organs. Suffering serious body crushing and headrush claustrophobia we battled our way to higher ground and relished a good deal of the set with ample body whipping and arms flailing space. An amazing night. At no point during Jaguar Skill’s set was there time to suck in the stitch and catch our breath; he banged out one epic tune after the next; having had the tickets and waited so long to experience the DJ on the top of our must see list it was certainly not a disappointment.  I would recommend absolutely everyone and anyone to hit up a night with Jaguar Skills! I wouldn’t recommend the cabby office near the Scala though. I get a need when I’m leaving the club and I’m wanting to please it (that’s going to bed) and I’m usually on the roam so I need a car when we leave clubs immediately; 45 minutes into our journey lost and driving the wrong way up a dual carriage way I’m thinking we need to get out, but the more that I need it the less that I believe it. Thankfully we are alive so it’s all good… moral to the Lindsey OCS, is get the bus. All I can say now is bring on the next one!

2012 sets to be another landmark year for our masked hero. His highly successful mix compilation for Toolroom Records received critical acclaim, and he has now been donned the“King of the Comps”. The demand for Jaguar Skills in and outside of the UK has gone to new levels; we literally cannot wait to see to see what he pull out the back this year. Keep an eye out for forthcoming event information.

The following  videos include “Ginger Pubes” and a rather special mash-up mix – more videos pending.

Also a special Raider shout out to the one and only legendary MC on the Mic Mr Stuuuuudiiiioooo…I’m sending one of these out to you (x) 😉

Finally a message fellow lovers of the mighty Jaguar Skills – HoooOOOooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What an absolutely quality night at Fabric! With our new FabricLive membership cards we were able to skip a rather hefty queue and paid a very reasonable £10 entrance fee with our student cards. As usual we headed straight to the main room to be greeted with the delightful sounds of Zinc pumping out some seriously sexy baselines to a heaving crowd. After several hours of perspiration and full body whiplash dancing we were graced with an incredible set by Jack Beats, which was followed by an equally epic and impressive showdown by the Dubstep King Mr Benga himself with Youngman MC – [who is hot hot hot!] Annie Mac joined the duo on stage with her entourage and was donning a new blonde Gwen stefaniesque hair do- you could hardly recognise her! I took several videos which I have linked below, but as usual they only capture a flavour of the awesomeness! Fellow lovers of the D’n’B and Dubstep, get yourselves down to FabricLive on Fridays, come hunt us down and join us for the wobbles!
