~ Marquis Hawkes [ Aus Music, Houndstooth, Dixon Avenue Basement Jams ]

Approaching twenty-five years of scene involvement, Marquis Hawkes – AKA. Mark Hawkins, Juxta Position and more – knows how to deliver a track. First emerging as a DJ in the UK illegal party scene in the mid-nineties, he began to release hard, lo-fi techno across a variety of European and UK labels throughout the 2000s. More than 30 records later, and desiring to adapt his persona to accommodate a more house-orientated sound, he adopted the ‘Marquis Hawkes’ moniker for a string of new releases on the Glasgow-based Dixon Avenue Basement Jams imprint. A tribute to L.I.E.S. affiliate Mariquis Cooper – AKA. Svengalisghost – and the late house legend Kenny Hawkes, the new name translated the same gritty aesthetic characteristic of much of his past techno output into groove-focused, basement house jams.

With his first DABJ release dropping in 2012, Marquis Hawkes has since been responsible for a prodigious volume of top quality house music. Graduating onto Aus Music and fabriclondon’s in-house Houndstooth imprint, his style remains true to his grassroots house origins, and never strays far away from house music’s core aesthetic. His releases on Aus demonstrate a more disco-informed style, with the euphoric ‘Basement is Burning’ a particular tip. With Discogs prices tipping the £40 mark, here Marquis marries splashy, live drums with a killer piano lick and strings, providing one of the 2017 festival season’s biggest floor fillers in the process. DJ sets journey from house sounds old and new, through disco, to groove-heavy, drum-based techno sounds. A true product of basement partying, we invite him to ours with open arms.

~ Disco Ma Non Troppo

DMNT return to their sort-of birthplace to do what they do best. Emerging as an eclectic, anti-genre party series out of the Cellar basement, they are well known within Oxford for their energetic sell-out nights. These parties were a product of an expansive knowledge of dance music from all ages: a characteristic all-nighter would journey from dub and rare groove, through disco (but not too much), and into garage, techno, jungle and more. At their core, DMNT represents a breakaway from dance music’s centre-field, a rejection of preconceptions of genre and style in favour of a witty, imaginative and eclectic approach towards selection and partying. Now delivering that vibe to intimate London venues – Kenny White and Gatto fritto include recent guests – the DMNT ethos remains clear: ‘music to dance to’ is the underlying necessity. Representing the band tonight will be DJ 6’6” Male and Virtual DJ, make sure you don’t miss out.
