Tapped present: Principal Records w/ Squarehead
August 30th @ Birthdays Dalston
For our summer season party we’ve rustled together something special for your ears…. Messrs Rob Fahey (aka Alphabet City) and Jeff Daniels earlier this year launched Principal Records. Forged from a love of house music with raw driven arrangement, yet with a core rooted in soul. The initial blue 12” release received much acclaim, particularly Medlar’s ‘86 remix’, an elongated acid tinged workout, with mixmag given it a hearty 8/10 and suggesting we “keep an eye on this imprint”… well, we have…
So what better way to mark their forthcoming second release, than to get the men responsible up to London for a showcase with their next remixer, Squarehead in tow.
Squarehead (5andSeven): 19year old Oliver Ledger has had an exceptional past couple of years, achieving more than most producers do in a lifetime, with releases on Manucci’s Mistress, 5andSeven and Wolf Music… as well as forthcoming releases on Principal and Waze & Odyssey Street tracks. Even with a prolific string of releases, the quality has remained consistently high, and he’s only getting started. Expect lashings of jackin’ house, spanking 808 claps, warbling acid rifs, and baselines that wouldn’t be out of place in 90’s Chi-town.
Principal also bring further support in the the form of Scott ‘thatmanmonkz’ Moncrieff, one half of production duo S&M from Principals first release, to even up the numbers, and of course we’ll have the full compliment of Debonair, Slothboogie, KMG & Timmy from the Tapped stables to join the dots.
To mark the occasion we’ve got a venue that’s befitting of the lineup in Birthdays, Dalston, with a no nonsense sound system for an evening of no nonsense house music. There won’t be any ‘first release’ ‘early bird’ ‘weekend pass’ ‘VIP’ ‘concession’ drip feeding either…. Free before 10.30pm… £5 thereafter. Plain and simple.
See you there.
