August Bank Holiday

Sunday 28th August

Great Suffolk Street Warehouse

:: eastern electrics August goes HEAVYWEIGHT

:: Jessie Rose, Renaissance Man, Dark Sky, Icicle, Monki added to lineup

The countdown has begun. eastern electrics is coming – and it’s going to be LOUD! Are you ready?
Taking over the capital three times a year, London’s favourite noise brigade eastern electrics showcases the biggest and most exciting upcoming sounds of the underground. And this August bank holiday is no different, as the ee crew sends Great Suffolk Street Warehouse into a frenzy with a powerful lineup.

eastern electrics on Sunday August 28th 2011 is going to be intense: a monster – and one hell of a party. And this time they’ve brought big names and fresh blood to join in the fun…

mulletover adds Richy Ahmed, one of the frontrunners in the evolving nu-school house scene, to its lineup, having already announced Robert Dietz and Simon Baker.
Hot Natured resident and hotly tipped house revolutionary, Richy Ahmed has been making a name for himself over the last couple of years – and his hard work and leftfield approach during the current house renaissance is paying off, as demonstrated by the hype surrounding his recent release ‘Suck It’. His star is rising – fast – as he takes house music production into new territory, fusing a deep understanding of ‘90s hip hop with a grooving house sound that incorporates techno, disco and funk, and takes in Chicago house along the way.
And the mulletover maniacs have also lined up a very special guest soon to be announced. Hold TIGHT!
One of the most exciting labels in house music at the moment, Made to Play take their lineup for August 28th to new heights, adding Jesse Rose and Renaissance Man to the already star-studded mix that includes Riva Starr and Zombie Disco Squad.

The Made to Play daddy-o, Berlin-based label founder and DJ Jesse Rose has carved a name for himself as one of house music’s leading lights, as adept at spotting and nurturing new talent as he is at exploring new avenues in house music production. His skewed house sound is deep and all-encompassing – Jesse Rose has a unique ability to take a genre and reimagine it, spotting something missing in a scene, and giving it a new twist. Deep, minimal, tech and heavy, Jesse Rose’s sound is almost impossible to define. Expect the unexpected…
Remix masterminds and Made to Play favourites, Renaissance Man is a duo whose inspiration comes from “the arts, science, sports, languages, funk and techno”. Their ethos is about evolution – their remixes are more like rebirths (and they’ve remixed for the likes of Crystal Fighters, Delphic, Brodinski & Noob) and their own house productions are out of this world.
London-based agency Reprise has firmly planted itself at the cutting-edge of the bass sound. Known for nurturing talent it to its full potential, Reprise has an impressive roster, and this August bank holiday they’re bringing the noise, with Dark Sky, Icicle (live), Monki and Seams (live) joining Paul Woolford and T. Williams on the lineup.

Tom Edwards, Matt Benyayer and Carlo Anderson together make up London-based Dark Sky, whose sets and production draws influence from everything from original UK garage through to house, via jungle and disco. Icicle is one of Holland’s most prolific producers, whose drum’n’bass and new dubstep sound is deconstructed yet rousing, with filthy pounding basslines and tech-funk beats. Lucy ‘Monki’ Monkman is a Rinse FM favourite whose excitable and experimental sets have earned her a devoted bass-loving following. And finally, tweakery genius producer James Welch brings Seams out of the bedroom, promising an engaging set of electronic music with heart – intricate and delicate but with a solid bass foundation. The Reprise room is going to be massive!

Greetings mulletover siblings... I take it you've had a look outside? Pretty amazing the change in the feeling of a few weeks ago.
I for one am thinking about walking bleary eyed out into the sunshine come next Sunday morning post our 7th birthday and being able to sit in park all day... well you gotta dream haven't you?! Hazy days are almost back again.

On that note, we've just been allowed a final release of tickets for the birthday next weekend. They're now at The Star of Bethnal Green and in Phonica Records, W1. Don't hang around on these tho as they'll be the absolute final advance release. Ahead of 2nd April we caught up with Rob & Geddes for a little video look back on the past 7 years of mulletover. Check to your right for the full interview. Or here if you can't see the embed.

Thank you to bloc and all those that came and represented at bloc... big skills from Visionquest
. The rest of the weekend was somewhat of a belter too!
 This weekend's mulletover by the sea @ Schtumm! now runs from 10pm - 5am and its Free Entry all night. All the queue jump listers have been snapped up but get down early and come help us celebrate what could very well be the start of summer... ya never know ya know! Venue is directly under Brighton station with trains returning to London directly after the party finishes. Google map link. The running order's included below.

Forward to next month and muscial head honcho Geddes' nofitstate party w/ Roman Flugel... check below for full details.

Hold that good ship sunshine steady and get out and enjoy... we're super close to the 7 year mark. Can't wait to see all a y'all faces next weekend.


Back 2 Basics take over room 3 @ our birthday... we examine the early history and a classic mix

Back 2 Basics takeover room 3 @ our birthday.

We're super excited to have Back 2 Basics... back at mulletover again to tear apart room 3 at the birthday next weekend. When they played the 3rd room at halloween 2009 it was pretty massive... to say the least. After doing a little delving, we've unearthed a really interesting little timeline of the club. We've listed the inaugural early years alongside an amazing and hugely rated Derrick Carter Cut the Crap mix for your ears. It's going to be big in their room next weekend... very big!


The first ever Back to Basics is held at The Music Factory. Leeds. Originally intended by partners Dave Beer and Alistair Cooke to be a small club where their mates could go and let their hair down as a kickback to the jaded acid house scene, it rapidly became a hugely popular night with massive amounts of people wanting to come in having heard its reputation as the best (and wildest) night out for miles around. Due to its success it moved from one to two to three floors.

BacktoBasics wins the inaugural Mixmag DMC club of the year Award.

Back to Basics moves to The Pleasure Rooms. Here we set up home and continued pushing the boundaries and causing mayhem, bringing in new talent and covering all styles of house - now household names such as Derrick Carter, Josh Wink, Danny Tenaglia, and DJ Sneak are brought over.


Cut The Crap opens at The Foundry, Coventry, spreading Basics¹ quality parties to another part of the country. Cut The Crap is a term born in Back to Basics - a no-nonsense way of partying and getting on with it (which often ends in nonsense!)

Cut The Crap, The Album, is released as a reaction to all the shit money grabbing commercial compilations which seem to have flooded the house scene. In the words of the Ronseal ads , it does exactly what it says on the tin. Featuring mixes by Ralph Lawson, Derrick Carter and Andrew Wetherall it gets listed by DJ Magazine 38th out of 100 in The Best Dance Compilations Ever.

Read the full timeline on Fantazia

Listen to the amazing Derrick Carter Cut the Crap mix recently re-brought to our attention by the excellent A Night With... Track down the Weatherall and Ralph Lawson ones off the same album too. They're equally brilliant.

mulletover interviews Reboot

mulletover interviews Reboot
At an age when most kids are discovering video games and girls German production wizard Frank Heinrich, aka Reboot, was making tracks on studio equipment he bought with his pocket money. This precocious talent was nurtured by illicit nights out at Sven Vath’s infamous, and influential, Omen club in Frankfurt, where Reboot grew up.

Despite Reboot’s early indoctrination into tough techno sounds he draws on diverse musical influences. As a producer his approach borrows liberally from across the musical spectrum from jazz to world music to classic house. Alongside friends like Chris Tietjen, Robert Dietz and Markus Fix he now spearheads ‘the new sound of Frankfurt’ The result is what Reboot calls ‘complex polyrhythmic architecture’ – and what dancefloors call dynamite.
We caught up with Frank AKA Reboot to hear his sets being more of live hybrid, collaborations he can't talk about yet, playing in Villalobos' live band and surprises in store for our bday

Hi Frank. We're really pleased to have you finally over to play @ mulletover. Your tracks have been huge down at our nights.
Where are you and what are you doing?
I took some time off in January to travel, relax and rebuild my studio. After the touring in 2010 that was totally neccessary. In Febuary i was playing some shows in Europe and spent a lot of time in the studio to work on remixes and new stuff. March the big touring starts again. I will be in Miami, NYC and of course a lot of gigs in Europe.

When you DJ, you're described as more of a 'one man live show' playing off keyboard's, laptops and the like. Can you describe your set up and how you use all the elements to create the atmosphere on the floor?
Last year i changed my DJ setup to Traktor. Just to see how good i get along with it and how i could use the advanced opportunities. I fell in love with it and kept on building my setup around it. By now i use Traktor together with ableton, ipad and changing hardware, like the Elektron Machinedrum or an Korg ESX for example. Playing like this is more a Liveact than just a DJ set because it leaves me total freedom of control. As i am playing Liveacts too, it was quiet easy for my to make the change. Now i can build up my DJ set like i would do in a Liveact by layering loops, samples and complete songs.

You'll be headlining our 7th birthday. Any surprises in store?

Hehe.. If i would tell you now, would it be a suprise anymore?
You're well known for coming from a classical background - does any of that make it into your current productions today? Ame commented in their interview last week that they were currently interested in ancient choir music. Can we see a collaboration on the horizon?! :)
All the stuff i listen to and of course my musical background, inspires me to produce the music i do. That can be latin as well as classic, funk or jazz elements. I have some interesting and suprising collaborations i am currently working on, but it would be too early to talk about it at this point.
You played as part of Luciano's touring Ether live band, how was that? It must have been fun to take that sort of thing on the road. Any plans for any other live tours either as Reboot or with anyone else?

It was an amazing experience. Working with such a huge group of amazing musicans, VJ`s and technitians was totally new for me and most of the times it was huge fun! At the moment i am fully focussing on my Reboot project. Also i am going to spend another summer in Ibiza, so there is not much time for other live tours at this time. For next year i would love to work on stage with other musicians, especially live-musicians, like percussionists, drummers, guitarists etc.. But doing that takes a lot of time for planning and organisation. 

If you could put together your ideal dance party, where would it be and what DJs/Live acts would you get to play?

Hmmm.. As long as you are with your friends, have a great soundsystem, a beautiful location and some mindblowing music... I really don`t care about the namedropping!

You've collaborated with Marco Delle Donne - any plans to get back in studio and any other artists currently lined up to work with you?

We have actually been talking about working together again. We sure will, but nothing is fixed yet... Same thing with other artists. Lot`s of ideas, but nothing is sceduled yet.

You've been described as "the new sound of Frankfurt" has the scene changed there over the last years and what's unique about it?
Especially in 2007 and 2008 there was this big hype around the Rhein-Main-House. It just happened, that a whole bunch of young and new producers found together and started producing a fresh type of house music. Before that, the scene in Frankfurt was very seperated in itself and not many people worked together. In my opinion this is the biggest change in the past years in this region. That Artist found together and some sort of community developed. I don`t know if that is very unique, but it was a nice progress. In the past two years that calmed down a bit. Not because we don`t like each other anymore, but due to the big success in 2008 a lot of these Artist really started off with their careers.

I think its fair to say Frankfurt's scene tends to get over shadowed by Berlin somewhat - do you agree with this and do you see it getting more of the right exposure in the future? Is this something you'd like to see happen?

Well, Berlin is a huge city and Frankfurt is just our tiny little hometown. I am not a big fan of comparing the two cities and their scenes. There is just too many differences and each of them has it`s positive and it`s negative attributes. In my eyes Frankfurt already has the right exposure, at least for those, that spend more than 5 minutes taking a look inside.
I'm currently doing a stint in New York (where you played Electric Zoo festival last year). Although I've been lucky enough to go to loads of amazing parties, with some top DJs, I still haven't found the 'one' in terms of something really mind blowing. I'm wondering if nothing really compares to the parties 'back at home' that I've grown up with - do you find the same having played all over the world?

I think that just depends on the party as such. I had outrageous partys in NY for example and i had some really horrible nights back home. I think it just depends on the right moment, a nice crowd, sound etc. and you can make “home” anywhere in the world.

Do you have any particular records that you never leave the house without/makes it into pretty much every set?
Involuntary that would be my Caminando.. People try to force me to play it in every set...

Voluntary i could name:

Octave One – Blackwater
DJ QU – We Are One
Trancesetters – The Secret of Meditation

Is there anyone else you've been playing with or seen around that have blown you away.

There is so many talented new kids around. I played with Nicolas Jaar in Paris and was stunned by his performance. Also Max Vaahs, a young gun from Frankfurt is an superb DJ.
You talk of your love of old school house producers - Enjoy Music had a very distinct nod towards the mid-90s. Who would be your dream old school producer you'd like to collaborate with?

Hehe.. You really want me to name them all? That would be a long list... I guess the Top 3 would be Kevin Saunderson, Todd Terry and DJ Sneak

What should I have asked you but haven't?
Frank, why don`t you stop answering interview questions and go back to the studio? :-)

Lastly, your Essential Mix you did in '09 was phenomenal. Still sounds so fresh today. Any chance we can persuade you to do a mix for mulletover to celebrate our 7th birthday? What a birthday present that'd be!

Done!!!!! Happy Birthday!!!!

Ame Interview ahead of their appearance at mulletover's 7th Birthday

  • Ame interview 
  • Geddes catch up on booking Innervisions
  • Gerd Janson's no fit state mix revisited in anticipation of his set in Innervisions room
  • Still tickets left for the birthday in person from The Star & Phonica - never fear!

    Ahead of their Innervisions room @ our birthday, we caught up with Kristian from Ame to get his thoughts and opinions on a whole heap of things. Check below for the full in-depth interview. Want to know what to expect from a Mr Gerd Janson's set in the Innervisions? Well then, we can help you out there! Check his utterly superb mix he did for Geddes' no fit state party last year on our mixcloud and to the right. Below we've got a quick catch up with mulletover musical head honcho Geddes on his reasons for booking Innervisions...
  • Thought you'd missed out on our 7th Birthday celebrations? Think again! Word has reached us that both Phonica Records & indeeed The Star of Bethnal Green both have plenty of tickets left... don't be shy. Just cos they've sold out online doesn't neccessarily mean they're always all gone in person. Get yow ass down there, quick smart! Geddes, What inspired you to book Innervisions for the 7th Birthday?Dixon has been a favourite of mine for a while, I remember seeing him three or four years ago at sonar and he blew my mind.  Every occasion since he's always delivered, I really get what the guys are about.  As for Innervisons its something for us all to look up to. Top 3 Innervisions tracks/Ame/Dixon remixes?Top Innervisions track would be Ame 'Rej', was a defining moment in house music and the scene in London, everything went from being quite minimal to house.  It made people realise there was still music around with a 4/4 kick.  Best thing from Dixon for me is his edit of Romanthony 'Wanderer', an amazing record but the original still does it for me.  sorry Stefan :) Tell us a little bit about Gerd's set when he played @ your No Fit State party last year?Gerd is an amazing DJ, really diverse which is something I think people aren't to familiar with these days, goes from one tempo to another seamlessly.
    Ahead of their Room 2 Innervisions showcase we caught up with one half of Ame (Kristian) to find out his thoughts on hype, playing live and the classic tracks they wished they'd made.

    Where are you now and what are you doing?
    I am at home in berlin/kreuzberg going thru my daly mails as my 5 month old daughter finally fell asleep.
    For those living under a rock these last years, how long have you been DJing & producing and in five words how would you personally categorize your sound?Intense,sometimes odd,reflective,danceable and honest.
    Room 2 at the birthday will be an Innervisions showcase - you head up the label with alongside Frank & Dixon - anything special in store?I think parties where we get the opportunity to shape a whole night/atmosphere are always our best ones.
    When you are DJing, what’s priority number one for an Ame set?humorous,educational entertainment.
    You'll be playing live and DJing @ our birthday in April. What and how do you differentiate the two?the live set is limited timewise and consist only of own material which will be live played.a dj set is based on new and old records and give you the freedom to tell a longer story than the live performance.
    When you make music are you largely hardware traditionalists or are you comfortable working from a laptop?It's more a hybrid of both worlds as we have a huge stock of old analog hardware, but we alos like the new possibilities given by computer technology.
    You're based in Berlin, how important was the music scene & dance culture in Berlin to the music you make?As we live here only since last year the influence on our music production is marginal.on the other hands the experiences we made in clubs like panoramabar definitely had been a big inspiration.still now after a long set there on sunday you go back home with a big smile and drive for the working week.
    If there were one or two classic tracks by other artists that you wish you could have produced what would they be? What is it about those particular tracks that resonate with you?Anything from brian eno's solo material in the 70's plus the " pet sounds " by the beach boys as their stuff had been far out,innovative,but still pop music!
    Care to share any of the new Artists or labels that are grabbing your attention lately that must be heard on the dancefloor?I became a huge fan of the los angeles based band the Lucky Dragons and dancewise i think the guys from Och are worth being checked.
    When you've played a bunch of renowned global venues, would you still consider yourselves to be underground DJs?I mean besides tiesto the whole dance scene is still underground.
    I've been asked to ask you about your views on this "short set bulls**t that has permeated the scene of late." What are your views on this and do you think there's a reason for it?
    I dont see the sense in a 2 hour dj set or even less but a lot of promoters and clubs are booking three guests a night because they think they will get more customers which is most of the times wrong. nevertheless we are getting paid for our job and if the people want you to play that long i accept it.

    Obviously this is a hard task but can you pick your personal top 3 from the mighty fine Innervisions back catalogue?
    1.chateau flight " baroque "
    2.ame " rrose selavy "
    3.culoe de song " bright forest "

    mulletover's always strived to get the sound at it's nights spot on. Over recent years we've seen a more discerning club experience emerge with - most importantly - a renewed interest in sound systems from both clubbers and promoters. What are your favourite clubs/systems to play on at the moment?
    definitely club air in tokyo, yk in helsinki and panoramabar
    What makes a good party in your opinion?light,sound,people
    Your FACT mix from last month was utterly superb. There's even hints of opera creeping in halfway through. Does this signal a new direction for Ame?! :)

    We are always up for new directions and i am currently very much into ancient choir music:-)
    Innervisions operate under a subscription model where your fans can pay a yearly fee to get all their releases, special content etc. This is the mecca that many labels wish to get to but need that 'Critical Mass' (no pun intended) of fans to do so. So the question is really, for labels like them, is this model the only way forward?of course you need to have a ceratin fanbase but on the other hand we always think about new ways as we dont wanna blame somebody for the downfall of the music industry as we see it more as a time of change.
    Can we talk about the new currency of hype and making yourself future-proof?
    A hype is more short term thinking but of course you should think about the future and especially how to survive in this business without becoming a promotional clown.

    Following on from that, what would you do if you weren't doing music?If the music would stop now i think i would go back to university for art science, cultural studies or philosophy.
    I've been asked to ask you about the light and dark side of Berlin, as discussed by many locals. Can you shed any further, ahem... light on this for outsider/uninitiated?
    I love the town with all the good and the bad,but i can't see the dark side. only if we speak about the crucial history of the last century and this even makes you more respectful to what we got now. the winter could be cold too but i mean thats what a winter used to be some years ago,right?

    Can house music ever be innovative again or does time take its toll on a genre, i.e. there are only so many things you can do with it?
    If you consider house music as a base it could be an open source to make new influences but still most of the house music is too much a copy of the past and lost the future perspective.people like lone, james blake or maxmillion dunbar instead are showing us a new path which i rate very highly.

    Ame play live  and DJ at the Innervisions showcase in Room 2 @ mulletover's 7th birthday celebrations. Tickets are still available in person from The Star, E2 & Phonica Records, W1.
