::FreQuencies the 3rd:: with Rinse FM’s Kismet + eXpression’s birthday
Ahead of Broadcite records ninth anniversary celebrations in November it’s time for the next FreQuencies installment once again teaming up with up with Talking Music Productions for an autumn soiree on Saturday 2nd October.
Birthday boy eXpressions from Lazer Kru will be having a right royal knees up the night, alongside Rinse FM rising star DJ Kismet, Defected records Ms Lynda Phoenix, DJ Marcia Carr (1/4 of LadyBugz) and Lazer Kru’s Cartel c3i, plus MC’s P.A.C., TRoy & Millie.
You’ve may have already miss out on Kaidi Tatham who brought plenty of heat to the last event at the end of July, or our FreQuencies spring party with Atjazz who kicked things off: strictly deep and soulful music.
DJ Kismet’s inspirational raving began in 1999 at Grays Inn Road, at UK garage afterparty that was to prove seminal for many but especially so for him, given he left with the rave’s name (“Kismet”) as his nickname. He continued to rave until frustration set in at the choices available and, with his friends Fever, IC, Gemini, Tippa and Supa D, took the time-honoured step of taking matters into their own hands and starting their own night named Circle. “A lot of DJs were playing the same music,” he explains. Nuff said.
In the Asian language Urdu “kismet” means destiny, and so it must have been written for our DJ and his friends that their club would succeed… Since 2007 Circle have continued their invite-only parties. Kismet describes it as an “international sound.” Additionally it’s sonically differentiated from the UK funky movement that it shares a common root and locale with and UK funky is not played at Circle events. They describe their sound as “more intelligent,” “better produced” and “generally seems to have more soul.”
With that description in mind to fit the FReQuencies rostrum we very much welcome Kismet’s début and know you’ll show him some loving support too.
FReQuencies regulars Lynda Phoenix|Marcia Carr|Lazer Kru will also be on top form to bring you a mighty fine selection of goodness all night long.
Former jazz dancer Marcia Carr is a woman of many talents and a long standing UK based DJ, who is also a member of the London based LadyBugZ DJ collective. Marcia Carr is considered the DJ’s DJ with her own edgy style always consisting of quality immersed in a distinct sound of soul fusion – recently she has been turning her hand to studio producing and remix work with a few projects in the pipeline.
Lynda Phoenix is a respected name within the house scene, she has shaken up the more ‘traditional sound’ of the soulful house scene. Known for raising the pressure by playing more upbeat driving beats alongside deeper vocal grooves. Lynda is also Digital manager for Defected and Strictly Rhythm.
She plays for some of the biggest brands in the dance industry, Ministry of Sound international tours, Azuli, The Gallery and the ‘Masters at Work Tour to name but a few.
LAZERKRU formed some time in 2000AD. The musical background of the two founders [C]artel[3i]-&-[Exp]ression[S] is a prevalent one, that spans cultures with afro-centric music at its core… Their premise was the utilisation of Lazer-beams in-syncrony with future Jazz music at the yester-year Co-op. Llazer-Kru Music was founded by Cartel3i: This collaboration unit has now embarked upon on a one-way mission. The ‘Firecracker’ EP is their debut and receiving much love from select DJs right now.
