FARLEY JACKMASTER FUNK ( WBMX/Disco/House Classics Set) The Sugar Club, Friday Feb 7th

We are very proud to present the return of Chicago house legend Farley Jackmaster Funk!

One of the originators of the house music sound, as part of the Hot Mix 5 DJ team in Chicago, Farley displayed his jaw dropping triple turntable technique to millions of listeners on the hugely popular radio slots,spinning a wild mix of classic disco and early 80′s electronic dance music. In 1985 he made the move to production, using drum machines, sequencers and synthesizers to help create a new genre that we all know now as house.

Tonight he will play a 3 hour set comprised of early house classics as well as the vintage disco, italo and electro that you hear on his mid 80′s WBMX mixes. A rare and incredible treat for all fans of house and disco is in store…

Farley will also be making an appearance on the Radiomade Nightflight takeover with Lil Dave and Pablo where he will be discussing and playing HOUSE MUSIC!

The Sunday Soul Dip with Pablo and Dee Reddy – this Sunday and every Sunday….

Our man Pablo has soul. Not a tangible soul, that’d be a bit metaphysical for a music blog. He has soul music, on the old timey vinyl, and the new fangled CD’s, and even those horrible soulless digital downloads. Heaps and heaps of it. He’s got the anecdotes and the trivia to go along with it too. Like the fact that Gil Scott Heron’s aul fella played for Glasgow Celtic in the 1950′s. YES HE DID! So when Dee Reddy was preparing her new breakfast show for Phantom FM, she decided to hand him a weekly slot talking about it. Soul music in it’s entirety, not just that Gil Scott Heron’s Da played for Celtic.

So every Sunday morning he’s been dragging himself out of the leaba at an ungodly hour and popping upon your wireless round 9.20am, spinning life saving soul music and chatting shite with the lady herself. It’s called The Sunday Soul Dip and we think it’s a lovely wee listen. Here’s an example of what goes down, as Pablo salivates over the rare funk nuggets unearthed by DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist of Jurassic on their ‘Brainfreeze’ mix.

This Sunday will see a special show as our man puts forward his soulful suggestions for their ‘Top 500 Musical Icons’ poll. He’ll be bypassing the stellar likes of Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Prince, Aretha Franklin and so on and throwing out some slightly more left of centre choices. It’ll be another excuse for him to throw out some guff about George Clinton and how if you’ve got funk, you got style, even if you’re rocking the homeless chic as Pablo has been for years.

There will also be a bloody drummer in there and a nomination from recent years, just to curveball you a little bit. Tune in around 9.20am if you want to join in the debate and maybe have a little swoon at his dulcet tones and face just made for radio. Right, that’s the last time we’ll use that joke, promise!!

We’re delighted to tell you that there will also be a 2 hour Sunday Soul Dip Christmas Special that will go out sometime on Christmas Day. That one will probably be a prerecord…

Fatty Fatty’s Spankalogical Protocol at Pacino’s, Friday Nov 22nd

Our schedule of parties in Pacino’s continues apace with this Friday seeing us take over their low-ceiling basement for the first installment of our Spankalogical Protocol parties. As opposed to our Soul Dip parties, which concentrate exclusively on 60′s and 70′s soul and funk, we’ll be running the musical gamut from 1940′s New Orleans to the technoid madness of 2013.

Helping us along the way will be a shedload of Drogheda natives, who’ll be bringing the bordertown looseness and a shedload of deadly tunes to boot. Taking centre stage on the night is Kev Sheridan, or as his friends call him, The One Man Loop.

Kev uses hardware and a range of handheld percussion instruments to build up a wall of dancefloor friendly sound, twisting popular classics into strange, trippy new shapes by sampling his own voice and his own loops, some of which are premade, some made on the fly as his show progresses.

Check out this beautifully shot video of him at The Body and Soul Festival a few years back to get a clearer picture of what he does…

Kev took a break from playing live a few years back – shortly after rocking our one off Down On The Farm event in 2010 – but now he is back and raring to go, with a fresh twist on this funk classic just one of the delights lined up for us on Friday…

Two of Drawda’s finest spinners will be on board for the ride too – with Craig C of Subculture putting on his hip hop/soul/funk hat instead of the drum’n’bass he regularly bangs out for Mud in The Twisted Pepper. Finishing out the night will be Andrew K, leader of the band of soul brothers we call the External Sounds crew, who’ll be whomping out the funk, disco, party classics, haus muzik and the rest… Either side of the lads will be Fatty resident Nico Keano and his schizoid mix of all that could matter on a dancefloor. As usual it’s free in and set to be a messy one…

Keep yer eye on fattyfattymusic.com and our Facebook page for an upcoming announcement regarding our first international guest for Pacino’s too… Ooooohhh we love it down there we do!

More tasty ticket giveaways… The Pharcyde next Friday 15th, Truss tomorrow at TP and more….

We’re incredibly excited to be backing up The Pharcyde at their show next week in The Sugar Club. They’ll be performing their incredible ‘Bizarre Ride II The Phracyde’ LP from start to finish, and we can go on previous experience with these lads and say this show is going to be off the hook, or some other similar expression which white boys should not be getting away with saying.

Pablo will be teaming up with hip hop aficionado Greg Spring of This Greedy Pig to rock the afterparty, with plenty of old school hip hop, squelchy boogie funk and funky breakbeat classics in the mix. Not that kind of breakbeat, this kind of breakbeat….

We have a pair of tickets to give away to the show, all you have to do is email fattyfattymusic@gmail.com with ‘The Pharcyde’ in the subject line and tell us your favourite hip hop thing that whiteboys get away with saying nowadays. Yes yes y’all!

We also have a pair of tickets to give away for something on the opposite end of the musical spectrum – the lashing UK techno of Truss, who will rock the Twisted Pepper tomorrow.

And taking another musical leftturn, check these boys out: An up and coming, formally trained 21st Century  jazz trio called BadBadNotGood.

They play the Sugar Club next Thursday, and they’ve been jamming with Bootsy Collins of Parliament/Funkadelic/ played the bassline on ‘Sex Machine’ by James Brown fame. Nuff bleeding said. If you want tickets to either of these bad boys ( oops, there we go again!) just drop us a mail at fattyfattymusic@gmail.com and we’ll see what we can do…. No hip hop lingo sub clauses this time!
