Posted in Uncategorized at February 29th, 2008 / No Comments »

Since we upgraded the site back in January and we have noticed a huge increase in the amount of people that visit us. We have had visits from people in 56 countries and the number of hits increased by 25% on last month.

Thanks!


Sorry to all people using Internet Explorer to view our site. We realised it wasn’t working properly for ages and finally got round to fixing it today. A big shout out goes to Sarah for finding the problem and fixing it :O)

Its all gravy now!


Here at Magik Bullet towers We like to think that we have our fingers on the very pulse of underground dance music…when we see stats like this, we feel quite smug.

Magik Bullet favourites Far Too Loud and Cornwall’s own Rektchordz (Playing in April) are currently #1 and #2 respectively on the worldwide Beatport.com breaks chart. This is fantastic news and we are really looking forward to their sets!

You can catch Far Too Loud at Magik Bullet on March 8th….

New Mix from Awe Soundsystem

Posted in Uncategorized at February 28th, 2008 / No Comments »

AWE Soundsystem – Proper Wankers, Ace Tunes. That’s just one phrase heard used to describe them. ‘The new Plump DJs’ is another, but they nervously laugh that one off and point to the previous statement as being more accurate. For those unfamiliar, AWE are Paul Wright, aka P-Dub, and Gerry Adams, aka Country Cockney. After a chance meeting in late 2002, the duo began ‘doing their thang’ in and around Ipswich, England. After several successful breakbeat nights in their hometown and the well-received underground release of the AWE Soundsystem mix CDs, the boys decided it was time to take their unique sound on the road and expose it to the breakbeat massive. In the blink of an eye, the AWE boys were playing all over the UK and earning a reputation as party starters. What followed was a weekly residency on www.nuskoolbreaks.co.uk radio. Now one of the top listened-to shows, AWEsome Beats is defining internet radio for the Breaks genre with their ‘unsigned showcase’ specials and continues to feature the freshest, unsigned talent in the breakbeat scene. They also continue to deliver blinding radio guest mixes online and via the airwaves all over the world, and are now listed as featured artists on www.bijoubreaks.com alongside the likes of Elite Force & Myagi. Once a club residency at the hugely successful bi-monthly Supatronix events came their way, AWE Soundsystem took aim at pushing their sound even further which has earned them a steady stream of appearances all over the UK and Europe alongside top DJs such as Stanton Warriors, Rennie Pilgrem, Future Funk Squad, Blim, Rogue Element, Dopamine, Dylan Rhymes, Meat Katie, Freq Nasty, Atomic Hooligan, Superstyle Deluxe, Slyde, The Freestylers, Chris Carter, High 8, Danny McMillan, Precision Cuts, Drumattic Twins and many more. This cemented AWE into the breaks scene and got them to number 18 in the breakthrough DJ category at the 2006 Breakspoll awards. This year they’ve also been made bi-monthly residents at Off The Wall, the Fat! spin-off parties held at Ministry of Sound and jumped another 8 places into the top 10 breakthrough DJs at the 2007 Breakspoll awards as well as securing slots at the Antiworld & Human Zoo festivals. On top of that they’ll also be making their Ibiza debut at the legendary ‘We Love Sundays…’ parties at Space representing Chew The Fat. With an ear on the funk-fuelled side of the breakbeat genre, AWE Soundsystem approach each event without any pre-conceived notions. The idea of free flowing what they play from one set to the next would frighten some club DJs, but it’s one of the foundational secrets to AWE’s success. Expect the unexpected! From party tracks to stompin’ funk-monsters, turntablism or the odd acapella just to keep things fresh, there’s little doubt that these lads are charting a course of their own all the way to the top.

Wow! What a year it has been for Wooz & Jimmy Mofo aka Beat Assassins. Their jump-up club smash “Keeping It Jiggy” sold records all over the world (as did “Shake Down Vauxhall & Brixton”) while being voted breakbeat tune of the month by Carl Loben in DJ Mag. Beat Assassins’ “Be-Bop Aloola” (also released on Mofo Recordings) hit No 1 in Jay Cunning’s Kiss FM chart (supplied by Know How Records) and went on to be the longest running track to remain in the Top 5 in the chart’s history. They have delivered mixes for the prestigious Annie Nightingales’s Radio 1 show and Rennie Pilgrem’s Galaxy FM, while their productions have sustained a high profile leading to a recent Beat Assassins’ performance to 6000 people at the Floridance Festival in Spain.

Far Too Loud

Posted in Uncategorized at February 25th, 2008 / No Comments »

The rise of Far Too Loud within the breakbeat scene so far has been nothing short of impressive. With each release they have received a bigger response and reached a wider audience, ensuring no Breaks DJs box is without one of their records. Snapping up the “Best Single” award at Breakspoll 2007, only a year and a half after their first release, confirmed that these boys are serious players, especially as they were up against the some of most elite artists in the scene!

Far Too Loud began life as three students on one of the worlds leading sound engineering courses sharing an interest in electronic dance music, particularly the breakbeat sound which was going through a huge surge in popularity at the time. Armed with a solid knowledge of the technical side of music making and all hailing from strong musical backgrounds, it did not take long for the team to hone their productions skills. Summer 2005 saw the lads crash onto the scene with their debut release ‘Whole Lotta Hate’ on Aquasky’s 777 label, a collaboration with the mighty Ctrl Z. This received massive support including Radio 1 airplay and was soon followed by singles on established labels Broke and Funkatech, all to similar acclaim. In 2006 a string of releases and remixes firmly established Far Too Loud in the scene and gained the respect of an expanding audience. These included collaborations with rapidly rising stars and Funkatech label mates Specimen A.

The Funkatech label gave the group the chance to push their sound further with a 3-part EP deal, resulting in the “Louder Than Life” series. The fresh sound of the first EP release turned heads from all over the scene, from Anne Savage to The Breakfastaz, and paved the way for part 2 which gained the lads even more support from the likes of Meat Katie and Jay Cunning. Not only was part 2 of the EP selected as best breaks single of the month in DJ Magazine but it went on to win “Best Single” at the 2007 Breakspoll awards, in which Far Too Loud were also nominated for “Best Newcomer Producer”. As if all that were not enough recognition, part 3 of the EP was selected for best breaks single of the month in Mixmag and iDJ magazines!

Having got this far the Far Too Loud boys had no intention of resting on their laurels and instead turned out what has undoubtedly been their biggest single yet, “Play It Loud”. A vinyl repress was ordered within the first week of its release and was the best selling breaks tune in a number of online music stores including Beatport and Juno. Once again it received the top tune spot in DJ magazine and slipped into the playlists of DJs all over the scene including the Plump DJs and Eddy Temple-Morris.

The attention gathered with each release has resulted in an increasingly busy gig schedule for Far Too Loud, including a number of UK festivals over the summer of 2007 at which their trademark psychedelic influences have seen them billed with some of the biggest names in psy-trance, as well as among established breaks artists. Additionally 2007 has seen FTL guest mixes on Kiss FM and Radio 1, with the Radio 1 mix being aired a further time as part of a ‘best of’ show.

With such a successful two years under the belt there is no doubt that the future is looking promising for Far Too Loud. As they continue to diversify their sound and tighten their production you can bet that the heads of the dance music world will turn in anticipation of what is to come next from these rising stars. Be sure that you don’t miss it!


The nominations for Breakspoll are going to be announced on Annie Nightingales show this Saturday morning, so fingers crossed.

Watch out for more details on next month’s event coming soon. Far Too Loud are up for best producers at Breakspoll, so we wish them the best of luck with that.

We are currently planning our 4th birthday party and will be announcing the lineup over the next month or so….
