wrongtom’s rather splendid Cassetiquette mixtape hit the more independent shelves this week. The fruits of 30 days locked in a studio with lots of records, 4 decks, an SP12, a laptop and plenty of tea (most likely) – it’s sixty minutes of tasty blends taking in lots of artists I know you like, but I won’t mention to save thomas some legal fees… you may be able to guess what’s goin on from the tracklist though

I’ve had this mix since December last year and it’s got heavy play on the Fringe Slut ipod and will definitely be in one of those arsey end of year lists I will be doing come December, but I’ve resisted posting any teasers till it got released. So here are a couple of my favourite exerts from the mix.
Download them, smile in wonderment at how good they are and then buy the cd from Banquet Records
London housed peeps should know that wrongtom and me will be djing at the Hot Sauce night down brick lane at 93 Feet East along with Destroy All Monsters whilst there are some splendid bands playing in the main room.
I will be playing the buffhypohmygosh bangers from around 10pm then i’ll be dancing with someone’s girlfriend till closing time – If you come down say hello, I’ll be the one smelling of rum!
look look look at the pretty flyer!
Greg Wilson, who is considered something of a legend at Slutty Fringe, got in touch recently and agreed to answer some questions – which was reet nice (and made me squeal with joy like a school girl) Enjoy
SF: Firstly Greg, thank you for taking the time to answer some questions for Slutty Fringe. You first came to prominence back in the early 80s with residencies at Wigan Pier and Legend in Manchester, which DJs inspired you to get involved in playing records in clubs?
GW: I wasn’t so much inspired by individual DJ’s, but by the fact that I grew up living above a pub, which had 2 functions rooms, where parties and wedding receptions were held pretty much every weekend. It was the DJ’s who came with their mobile discos that made a collective impression on me. I lived there between the ages of 6 and 13, so I absorbed a lot of music in this way, sitting behind the bar at night with my mum, and even later, when I’d gone to bed and could still feel the beats coming up through the floorboards (this is how I believe I acquired my sense of rhythm).
Then, I met a school friend, Derek Kelsey, who built his own mobile disco aged only 11 (2 old turntables in a wooden draw with a switch between deck 1 and 2). Derek became a close friend, and still is, so I suppose that if anyone was an inspiration, it was him.
What was the first nightclub you went to?
Can’t remember if it was the Chelsea Reach in New Brighton, where I’d later work, or a club I managed to get into when I went on holiday to Majorca in the summer of ’74. Either way, I would have been 14 at the time.
How does the whole nightclub scene these days compare to the early days of Electrofunk?
It’s very different. Electro-Funk was first played on the underground black scene, which revolved around specialist club nights (often held midweek, as with my main venues, Legend and Wigan Pier) and All–Dayers (which took place on Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays). If you didn’t read magazines like Blues & Soul and Black Echoes, or listen to the weekly ‘soul shows’ on local radio, you wouldn’t be aware of what was happening.
It wasn’t until later in the decade that dance culture exploded on a mainstream level, so this was the period when the groundwork was being laid for what would happen later. It was a scene that was very much led by the black audience, who were always into the most cutting-edge music, as well as being the best dancers. Dancing was much more focal back then, it was serious business where the black kids were concerned, with crews from different areas always trying to outdo each other. There were some absolutely amazing dancers back then.
The re-edit has over the past few years come back into popularity, I assume Tirk got you involved in the Credit To The Edit series to demonstrate how it should be done. Should lazy bootleggers have their PCs taken away from them and given a revox machine instead for a few months to teach them some skills?
It’s like anything – there’s good and not so good. I hear lots of edits I really like, along with the stuff I don’t.
Starting out editing on reel-to-reel definitely gave me a solid grounding. Trying out relatively simple ideas could be very time-consuming, so I spent an incalculable amount of time splicing bits of tape together; often undoing what had just taken me maybe twenty minutes to try out, because it didn’t quite work. It might take me thirty seconds to do the same thing on computer now, but back then you were obviously limited in what you could do, and how quickly it could be done. However, working in this more measured way, almost in slow motion when compared to now, gave you a real connectedness with what you were doing, adding depth to your understanding of the whole process you were involved in, especially the mathematics, which, once you’ve spent enough time working this way, becomes second nature.
I’d been away from the club scene for so long that I didn’t realise there was this resurgence in editing. What really blew me away was the response when I played the edit of Chaka Khan’s ‘I Feel For You’ at my comeback gig in Manchester. This was something I’d put together in 1984, in an effort to show the record companies what I could do with limited resources, but nobody was really interested at the time, whereas now, two decades on, people were coming up to me to ask where they could get a copy! It was great to be able to include that original tape edit on Credit To The Edit – finally laying to rest the rejection I felt at the time.
Tirk are one of the best labels at the moment, the Fujiya & Miyagi LP is among my favourite releases from 2006, and anyone who gives Maurice Fulton the license to release his demented Syclops stuff will get love from me – What else do you have planned with the label?
Yeah, Tirk is definitely a label with its heart in the right place. I’m currently planning towards Volume 2 of ‘Credit To The Edit’, this time concentrating on more contemporary tracks – the type of stuff I’ve picked up on since I started deejaying again. Hopefully it will surface late spring.
2006 saw you release a number of excellent under the counter re-edits – Will there be more this year? The I Was A Teenage DJ 12 in particular was splendid
There’s a 2nd Teenage DJ EP on its way, plus a 2nd Young Dog Alien. I’ve also been busy remixing / re-editing a number of things, including a series of tracks from the forthcoming Groove Armada album, as well as Tom Findlay’s other project (with Tim Hutton), Sugardaddy.
Have you had the chance to dabble in the new technology that is becoming increasingly prominent in djing such as Ableton Live and Serato, and what are your thoughts on this technological progression?
A little while ago Ralph Lawson gave me a demo of Abelton, which I really like and would be well into incorporating into what I do. Only problem is that I haven’t been able to find the time to get my head properly into it, so it remains on the backburner for now.
I’m well into anyone using whatever technology available if it enhances what they do. The great thing about deejaying nowadays is that there’s a variety of ways in which to present the music you play, rather than just records and turntables, as has been traditional. I love vinyl, it’s what I grew up with – however, in my book, it’s not the format but the music that counts.
Which nightclub venue (past or present) holds the fondest memories for you?
Legend in Manchester on a Wednesday, circa 82/83, was the absolute height of things for me. I’ll never experience that type of intensity in a club again – all elements (the time, the people, the music, the atmosphere, the dancing, the sound and lighting) combining to make a deep and lasting impression on anyone who experienced it. It was right at the cusp of things, with regards to the underground dance scene prior to its gradual mainstream emergence, the most cutting-edge British club night of its era.
As an extra treat, here is a live mix of Greg Wilson at London clubbing behemoth Fabric, recorded last year
Download and Dance

The Bulgarian is the fidget house alias of a very talented musician based in Cape Town. He’s the latest signing to On The Brink Recordings, and is fully repping the fidget house scene down in South Africa.
It will be a few months yet before his EP for On The Brink see the light of day, but he was kind enough to put together an exclusive mix for Slutty Fringe that includes his own productions and some Crookers heat plus lots of Switch and Herve wonkiness.
This mix has been duking it out with the new Joakim album for bragging rights on my ipod since I got it at the weekend and has also helped me not lose my rag at fellow passengers on the DLR during crush hour. It’s very very good

Swiss DJ collective Audioporno just sent me through their remix of Infants Firetruk Theme. My love of Infants is well documented and I’ve been liking Audioporno ever since I heard their Pig Mix from last year.
They run Ghettotronica records and were responsible for that ill Bmore Joints & Eurocrunk Funk 12″ with DJ Shir Khan that came out last autumn which had some nasty blends of spank rock, mia and justice on it. If you haven’t got a copy yet then head over to Juno now and pick it up for some StrateUpPartyHeat
AARDVARCK & U-GENE – TRACK 4
I will give out some prizes (Crookers mixtape, Modular Records Mix plus more) to the first person to correctly guess the location where this video was shot – send entries to email@example.com with “video competition” in the header.
!!COMPETITION NOW CLOSED!!
Yo Majesty are a trio of girls from Tampa, Florida who are pushing their own unique flavour of durty hiphop and getting plenty of hype for it! Big Stereo has been repping them for a while now and the Yo EP, their new EP produced by (unknown to me) punk funk band HardFeelingsUK has just dropped in the shops (get it here)
Also check hardfeelings uk’s music here – is nicenice
I’ve been in love with this song for a few months now, it’s just the best piece of music I have heard for quite some time, get goosebumps and shit when I listen it.
Catskills have done the right thing and released it as a single this week – available on cd, 7inch and download preceding their second album, Ghost Is Not Real which drops at the end of this month. It’s worth getting the album for the full 7 and a bit minutes of this track.
Leeds based label I Can Count sent me through some music just now, which is right decent of them. They specialise in putting out some of the most impressive and interesting alt pop music there is, with no restrictions on genre, kinda like a northern sister to London’s pouting Alt<Delete.
Last year they put out a compilation, snappily entitled I Can Count Music – Volume One that contains some splendid wonky electronic pop and acoustic niceness that garnered some buff hype from some of the more independent minded Radio DJs and is subsequently getting a re-release on the 5th of February.
February is gonna be busy for I Can Count as they are also putting out their first single on the 12th, a rather nice little release by Grand Prix 86 called Everybody’s Dancing which also contains a splendid remix by David E Sugar.
I’m really starting to develop some love for this man’s music. He is responsible for the amazing GrecoRoman Soundsystem theme tune which was on the Greco Roman mixtape that was floating around the cobweb last month (mix of the year too I think)
Oi oi New York this is London… Oi oi New York GrecoRoman!
and he has just put out a EP out with this grime MC called Ears that’s on Brikabrak (get it here)
I’ve also been tipped that Slutty Fringe favourite Miss Odd Kidd is gonna feature on the second installment of I Can Count Music that is out in a few months. 2007 should be a interesting year for I Can Count.
Head over to their online shop to grab a upfront copy of the Grand Prix 86 ep and the I Can Count comp or some of their custom apparel (I’m liking the tees).
They’ve kindly let me post a few tracks up to get your ears interested. The Fingers on Whips track in particular I’m loving – it’s on a New Young Pony Club tip with some fooking ace 808 acid squiggles
Loren P Nikkel – Me & Green (taken from I Can Count Vol 1)
Fingers On Whips – Love Injection (taken from I Can Count Vol 1)
Grand Prix 86 – Lights In Your Eyes (David E. Sugar ‘It’s Rigged’ Remix) (taken from the Everybody’s Dancing single)
Man like Electric Zoo also has some tracks from this comp posted up – so head over to his excellent blog and download the excellent mix he did recently. The kid is really on his game as well lots of great stuff , I best sharpen up!!
glasses is a good look from DirtyDirtyDancing
French electro kid Felix Cartal sent me through some tracks. He’s done a rather natty remix of The Looks by voocoder obsessives MSTRKRFT and he also sent me a tuff tuff original track he has done called Decadanse (whether it’s an ode to the lovely La Decadanse I don’t know) peep the rest of his excellent productions over at his myspace – I”m liking his refix of Ashlee Simpson (good look on the thigh high socks too!)
Zombie Disco Squad, fully repping tits n bass music to shake your money maker to in London and responsible for the Gutter Broadcast blog (see them giving The Crookers some love yessir) sent me through one of the many mixes they have on the cobweb – best listened to in the company of drunk girls with interesting hair.
Download and dance – Zombie Disco Squad – 3pm At The Titty Bar mix
London peeps can catch them at Bloggers Delight tmrw along with Herve, Knifehandchop (I think) the BD residents and some others who I have forgotten.
On a Bloggers Delight related note, Casper Fluokids has just done a reet nifty podcast for Adventures In The Beetroot Field that is rammed full of excellent tracks – I’m feeling the Duke Dumont track and the Sinden & Herve refix of Fergilicious yessir but i’m not convinced on the Plastikman/Tom Jones marriage hahaha peep the tracklist……..

It doesn’t quite feel like a Friday afternoon in my head yet (still wonky from nye) but I do have a couple of extremely hottt mixes to give the bigs ups to.
Tactic, a DJ duo from Kansas City very kindly sent through the Second Volume of their MoneyShot mixtape series.

The Pack – At The Club Instrumental
Robbie Williams – Rudebox (Soul Mekanik Extended Dub Mix)

Buddy Peace, Genius DJ and Producer and Banquet Records employee took over Rhythm Incursion‘s radio show at Christmas and treated listeners to a 60 minute journey through some of his favourite indie music.
Buddy Peace is a very good dj, he compiled a special mix with man like Zilla for Warp’s 10 year anniversary DVD, has done countless collaborations with Bully Records and put together one of my favourite hiphop mixes with his Good Grief Mixtape.
RI have now made the show available for download for those silly enough not to have it podcasted. This show is a bit different to thekind of stuff I normally feature n Slutty Fringe but it deserves to be heard by a wider audience cos it’s speshul.

This sounds like it should have beeen the theme tune to that stupid Torchwood thing, brilliantly eeery Sci Fi space disco buy here
I’m a sucker for chopped up Motown vocals , Baltimore House and Percolator samples.
Sometimes Mr Hebden’s instrumental wonkiness can be a bit over indulgent for my tastes, thankfully this track from his recent DJ Kicks compilation is a splendidly stripped down bit of melodic house music buy here
Van She were sososososo consistent with their remixes in 2006, this fuckaround with the Presets classic is without doubt my favourite buy here
I sat on the Trentemøller album for ages, gave it a few listens over the festive period and can now understand why it was in so many albums of 2006 lists, this track is my favourite – love the rubber band bassline buy here
So 2007 got off to a rather splendid start for myself, spending all day on the pish in Camden, nominally to catch The Rapture djing at the Lock Tavern but I don’t really recall whether they did actually , was nice to see Casper Fluokids though.
I’ve also struck upon a genius marketing tool – defacing an old vice t shirt by scribbling somewhat wonkily “My Only” and “Is Slutty Fringes” either side of the vice logo – I’m gone get some proper tees printed up (perhaps)
nuff of that nonsense, Sick Of Nature are starting a new night at the Half Devil in Old Street (otherwise known as 333) called Pick Up The Pieces with the first night on the 12th January – and it is a bit special, with Tigerbeat 6 taking over the main room (knifehandchop & drop the lime people!) and Infants are also djing – plus in the basement hot tip for 2007 Zilla is doing his dancehalltechstepglitchhop thing.
Zilla’s mixtapes are a thing of legend, and he has kindly let me put his mad limited (100 copies in the world) One Foot In The Fire, One Fist In The Air mix from 2003 for download (Erol Alkan booked Mister Zilla to play at Trash after hearing this mix)
It blew me away when I first heard it and still makes me guffaw with delight whenever I stick it on. One glimpse at this tracklist should engender similar reactions in you.

Hello again heheh, theres a few more tracks at the end of the mix that are missing from this list, but the internet is not being very friendly.
Zilla One Foot In The Fire, One Fist In The Air (84mb)
On the topic of splendid mixtapes, my good friend, phoebe cates enthusiast and talented producer and record player, Mr Wrongtom, is on the cusp of releasing an extremely well crafted mix cd called Cassetiquette. He very nicely sent me a promo copy back in at the start of December and it has been duking it out with the new LCD Sound System album for most listens on my ipod over the past few weeks.
If you head over to his Myspace page, you can get a wee teaser of what to expect come it’s release. For me I think it’s gonna be one of the best mixes you will hear in 2007. I will be playing records at Hot Sauce, 93 feet east, with mr wrongthomas on Saturday the 27th January in the Pink Bar. Expect lots for buff scenester music for c*nts, it should be a hoot!
