IVAN SMAGGHE Interview - Stealth 6th Brithday



To headline the >ZLEEP< room at the Stealth 6th Birthday this Friday, we are looking forward to welcoming back a man who stands at the crossroads between glamorous Parisian hype and musical integrity, Stealth favourite IVAN SMAGGHE.

Ivan's 'Test' radio show and compilations imposed a new vision of leftfield electronica on Radio Nova and his programming for the two past years has been a faultless example of quality eclecticness. Though Smagghe hails from the early days of the Parisian underground - both through his connection with the defunct Rough Trade record shop and remixing contributions on various formats - he came back to music production in 2001 by launching his own Set imprint.

How long ago did you start djing & producing?
First paid set in 1992. Production came later, ‘96 probably.
What was the first record you ever bought?
Soft Cell's ‘Tainted Love’ was the first I bought with my own money.
And what was the last record (or track) you bought?
An EP by Dionigi called 'They Have Black Eyes’ on Quantity Division: Italian. Amongst others.
Who were your main inspirations that got you into djing & production?
My dad and his love for Tangerine Dream. Throbbing Gristle, Severed Heads, and Soft Cell probably. Belgian new beat. I'm coming from a 'rock' background, so Weatherall has to be the man responsible for getting me properly into dance music. Dimitri from Amsterdam was a DJ I loved and loads of others. Harvey counted a lot at some point. Many others over the years really.
How many records are in your collection?
I stopped counting and collecting when I lost 20,000 records in a fire back in 1998.

What are your 3 most played tracks at the moment?
Some unreleased tracks by French hopes DARABI (check Get The Curse for more info), 'Broken Clock' by CHALLENGE on Marketing, and an EDDIE C remix of SEAN BROSNAN on Needwant.
What do you do when you are not djing / producing?
Read. Watch movies. Not TV, movies. Being angered by too many believing in the final victory of capitalism.
What is your biggest fear?
Loss of a loved one. Including my cat.
Stealth is 6 years old this Friday. What did you do on your 6th
birthday?

Too far away to remember I’m afraid. But I asked my mum for my first record in 1977. 'Manureva' by Alain Chamfort, a French pop track of which I’ve always wanted to sample first four bars.
If you could pick 3 Dj's (past or present) to play at your party
who would you pick?

Dimitri from Amsterdam circa 1992, Poltergeist, an early Belgian legend whom I was never able to hear, and Nathan Wilkins really playing what he wants. They’re 3 amongst many though.
What is your favourite memory of Stealth?
The quality of it's residents, Matt Tolfrey and Dave Congreve. And it was always a pleasure to see James Bailie.


Ivan will be playing alongside Tim Green, Dave Congreve & Zleep DJs at the Stealth 6th Birthday event this Friday.

Tickets are available from Alt-Tickets, Stealth Online or in person from Rock City Box Office.

Transit Mafia is the promoter and resident DJ of Stealth's longest running night - Detonate. The night, which focuses on Drum & Bass, Dubstep & Hip-Hop, has been running on a monthly basis since 2004, and as a DJ he has probably played at Stealth more times than any other.

I started DJing about 13 years ago.

Musical Youth - Youth of Today LP.
And what was the last record (or track) you bought?
Scuba - Triangulation
Who were your main inspirations that got you into djing & production?
I first got into listening to techno DJ's like Dave Angel, Luke Slater, Dave Clarke and people like that. Drum & Bass wise Randall, Doc Scott and some of the Bristol lot were what got me into it.
How many records are in your collection?
A large room full. I try to get rid of some occasionally but end of not being able to part with them.

Red Lines - Total Science
What do you do when you are not djing / producing?

My serato breaking down. I've not been using it long and still have that moment every gig when i don't think it's going to work.
Stealth is 6 years old this Friday. What did you do on your 6th birthday?
I think I had a party which involved musical chairs with my dad playing the piano instead of stopping and starting a record.
If you could pick 3 Dj's (past or present) to play at your party who would you pick?
This is kind of what I do every week with Detonate, but I guess Marky, Calibre, and David Rodigan probably. Doc Scott in 1995 as well. Zinc in 2000, Ed Rush in '98.
What is your favourite memory of Stealth?
On our 10th Birthday Detonate did a Sunday night with Marky, Benga and Breakage. It was one of those nights which just went off. Marky played for around 4hrs dropping Michael Jackson, Nirvana and loads of random stuff, and Rich Detonate and MC Lowqui stage dived out of the upstairs booth.


What 5 tracks stand out as your favorites from your sets at Stealth?

Big tunes of the last 6 years at Detonate include:

Back to your Roots - Friction & K-Tee remix
Number One - Die & Clipz
Together VIP - Logistics
In Love - Jenna G
If We Ever - High Contrast
What has been your favourite night at Stealth?
Probably the 10th Birthday with Marky, Benga and Breakage.
What has been your funniest moment in Stealth?
Kath Detonate having a some sort of karate fight with Andy C's driver and kicking the amps off during his set. Wasn't that funny at the time though.

More information is available on the Facebook Event.

BOWSKI Interview - Stealth 6th Birthday


This Friday we welcome Bristol-based producer/DJ Bowski to Stealth for his debut Nottingham show. In advance of his set alongside Fake Blood at the Stealth 6th Birthday, we quizzed the 'playful techno' producer...

How long ago did you start djing & producing?
I've been DJing for about three years. I decided to learn on my gap year and got really into it. When I moved to Bristol I wanted to DJ outside of my bedroom, but after a year of very little gigs I thought the only way I could play out would be if I produced. I do music technology at uni and I had done a bit at college, but I never made any tracks for a club. I just messed about with software. I made my first proper tune about this time last year and that was 'Hooves'.
What was the first record you ever bought?
The first record I ever bought with my own money was 'Fresh Hits 98'. It's basically a crap pop compilation. I learnt my lesson after that. I remember getting 'Surrender' by The Chemical Brothers for my birthday from my sister. That's probably my favourite album of all time.
And what was the last record (or track) you bought (ie. paid money for)?
It was 'Symphonia' by James Braun. I've wanted it for ages.
Who were your main inspirations that got you into djing & production?
It was people like The Chemical Brothers and The Prodigy that first got me into dance music. When I got my decks I realised I had a limited selection of club tunes, so I started to delve more into that side of things and got into Justice and Soulwax. In terms of production I would have to say Fake Blood and Boy 8 Bit. I've always loved the fact that their tracks have great melodies. They don't just churn out bass ridden tracks. Claude VonStroke is a big inspiration too.

How many records are in your collection?

I have about 80 tracks on me when I DJ, but I’ve got hundreds of albums at home and thousands of tracks on my iTunes.
What are your 3 most played tracks at the moment?
I love playing the Zombie Disco Squad remix of Black Box 'Ride On Time'. It always gets a good reaction. 'Dism' by Tony Senghore is another great track I love mixing. Probably my favourite track to play out at the moment is 'Hickup Theme' by Hickup. The rolling bassline is awesome and it always goes off when I play it.
What do you do when you are not djing / producing?
I'm taking a year out of Uni doing an internship at the moment. I go back there in September, but hopefully I’ll still get to do all the Bowski stuff I love doing.
What is your biggest fear?
Wasps. I managed to sit on a wasps nest when I was a little boy, so now the fuckers scare the shit out of me.
Stealth is 6 years old this Friday. What did you do on your 6th birthday?
To be honest I can't remember, but I expect it involved a bouncy castle. I couldn't get enough of them at the time.
If you could pick 3 Dj's (past or present) to play at your party who would you pick?
John Peel because he always played the most forward thinking music, The Chemical Brothers because they're heroes of mine and Format B because the last time I saw them they played one of the best sets i've ever seen.

RIOTOUS ROCKERS Interview - Stealth 6th Birthday


Riotous Rockers formed after a chance meeting on the dance floor of Fabric Room One in the summer of 2003. Unbeknown to Pete and Boggy they would both meet again in their home town of Nottingham a few months later to discover they shared a mutual love of all things Electro, Pop, Disco, and Rave.

The DJ partnership was truly formed when they were given the chance to play at Nottingham's most hedonistic night, Liars Club. Mixing up as many styles as they could lay their hands on, they complimented promoter Ricky Haley's inspired bookings (which over the years has seen the likes of Franz Ferdinand, Scissors Sisters, Bloc Party and The Klaxons play long before they became household names). Riotous Rockers soon became a regular fixture at the clubnight.

Word of these explosive DJ sets travelled fast, and the Rockers found regular guest slots at the cream of UK of club land further a field, including gigs in Ibiza, Barcelona, New York, Paris and Amsterdam.

They've been djing regularly at Stealth over the past 6 years, so we thought we'd have a bit of a reminisce...

Boggy (right): I've been Djing for the last 15 years.

How many records are in your collection?
Boggy: Around 4000 maybe, happily rapidly declining thanks to Ebay!

I went to see Chromeo play live on a Thursday night, around 70 people there I think, but they were amazing. Running our own night ASBO has always been fun at Stealth guests including Hot Chip (playing live) and Fake Blood (when he was simply DJ Touch√©). Everytime we warm up for Erol Alkan it’s great.
Pete: So many amazing times. Some of the guests in the early days, often on the same bill; The Glimmers, The Hacker, Felix Da Housecat, Ivan Smagghe were all amazing to have on in Nottingham, also the first time Erol played was really special. Warming up for loads of my favorite DJs/producers has been an unbelievable job to have – thank you Stealth!

Pete: 2many DJs on a Friday. I spent most of the gig on Matt Waites shoulders it was more like being at a gig than in a nightclub!
What has been your funniest moment in Stealth?
Boggy: The time Ricky Haley hired a ball pool for the middle of the downstairs room at Liars club. Absolute mayhem, bouncers, bar staff getting hit in the face with balls, huge night!

TIM GREEN Interview - Stealth 6th Birthday


As you should all be aware by now this Friday is Stealth's Sixth Birthday - and to celebrate we're putting on a special event showcasing some of our favourite acts from the last 6 years at the club (including Fake Blood, Ivan Smagghe, Nero, Bowski & Tim Green).

Tim Green is one of those producers who doesn't turn in a lot of filler tracks. For the most part when "TG" or Tim Green puts something out there, it has a strong sense of character and rocks a dancefloor to its core. Many of the world’s leading labels have recognized this, with Tim signing tracks and remixes on the likes of Get Physical, Cocoon, Dirtybird, Renaissance, Four:Twenty, Trapez, Cr2, Sci-tec, Southern Fried and many more. Singles such as ‘Kitch-In’ ‘Mr.Dry’ ‘Revox’ & ‘Exercise’ have become anthems in the house and techno scene over the past 2 years.



Tim's talents have not gone unnoticed by the world biggest djs, and the level of support he's received on his productions has been quite staggering. Ritchie Hawtin, Sven Vath, Pete Tong, Carl Cox, Sasha & John Digweed, Josh Wink, Deadmu5, Tiefschwarz, Steve Lawler, MANDY, Dubfire, Ricardo Villalobos, Laurent Garnier, Slam, Claude Von Stroke, Nic Fanciulli, Steve Angello, Lee Burridge, Damian Lazarus, Anja Schnieder, and many more have consistently championed Tim’s music. Check out these videos of Richie Hawtin & Erol Alkan dropping Tim's tracks:



We caught up with Tim to ask him a few questions before his set at Stealth this Friday.


How long ago did you start djing & producing?

About 4 or 5 years ago. Producing came first, closely followed by DJing.
What was the first record you ever bought?
Cant remember exactly, but was probably something like High Contrast-
Make It Tonight or a record from Thomas Bangalter's Roule label.
And what was the last record (or track) you bought?
Actual record bought fairly recently was Skudge - Convolution.
Who were your main inspirations that got you into djing & production?
Initially it was Daft Punk and a lot of drum and bass. Calibre,
Nu:Tone, High Contrast etc... Adam F as well with his Colours album.
Thats more the initial ones for production. But then it was more my
mates in Kent who were all DJs. They all taught me to mix and
inspired me.
How many records are in your collection?
More than 10.
What are your 3 most played tracks at the moment?
1) Pamparampapam - Mindhaker
2) La France - Lucero En Vivo
3) Convolution - Skudge
What do you do when you are not DJing / producing?
Read, drink, watch movies, stay clear of airports.
Stealth is 6 years old this Friday. What did you do on your 6th birthday?
Probably got high on e-numbers, additives and sugar! Ran around a lot..... then got more high!
If you could pick 3 DJs (past or present) to play at your party who would you pick?
Daft Punk, Loco Dice and DJ Shadow.
What is your favourite memory of Stealth?
Haha, a very blurry one with Dave Congreve. In fact, they are always brilliantly blurry - for which I put all blame onto him! But we always end up playing back to back which is really great fun. I could mix back to back with Dave for hours and hours.
Tim Green will be playing in the > ZLEEP < room alongside Ivan Smagghe, Zleep Djs & Dave Congreve. Here's one of Tim's mixes to get you ready for Friday's party:

JAKWOB @ Dot To Dot, 2010

This year's Dot To Dot Festival is set to the be the biggest one yet, taking place on Sunday 30th May. As always the lineup will be incredibly diverse - crossing all musical genres and featuring the hottest new acts.

The first of these we would like to announce is JAKWOB, the midland's based Dubstep producer, responsible for the massive remixes of 'Starry Eyed' & 'Under The Sheets' by Ellie Goulding.

Having only just turned 20, James Jacob AKA 'Jakwob' has seen his nascent career take off in the last few months. Along with the two remixes for Miss Goulding he has also turned his hand to tracks by Empire Of The Sun, Temper Trap, Audio Bullys & Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip.

Jakwob has been involved in music from the age of 10, and his style transcends genres - combining elements of dubstep, trance, ghetto-tech and breakbeat. This eclecticism also manifests itself in Jakwob's DJ sets which take in dub, hip hop, drum and bass, dubstep and anything else that he fancies making fit.

Here is Jakwob's remix of 'Starry Eyed':



... and his remix for 'Under The Sheets':

ONEMAN (Rinse FM) @ Stealth (09/04/10)

This Friday (09/04/10) we are pleased to welcome back ONEMAN to Stealth, who, after a year spent as one of Rinse FM's most reliable hosts has just curated the 11th edition of the awesome RINSE mix CD series.

"It's a kind of an unwritten rule but by and large to become a big DJ in dubstep you need either two things: An incredible arsenal of new dubplates, or a talent for production such that you have, well, an incredible arsenal of new dubplates. But recently a DJ has managed a steep climb up the scene's ranks without either. He is DJ Oneman." Martin Clark, Pitchfork

Oneman's aim, "to make people dance and people dance to good beats" has resulted in him guesting regularly at the biggest Grime, Garage & Dubstep nights - including DMZ, Fabric, Dirty Canvas, YoYo, Night Slugs & FWD, and he is still the only artist ever to appear on Mary Anne Hobbs' BBC Radio 1 show without releasing a single record.


Also on the bill this Friday are the Australian female Dubstep DJ/Producer personally signed by Skream to his Disfigured Dubs label - KITO, and 'Gutter Dubstep Ravers' Bar9.

Advance Tickets are available NOW from here.
