Eastern Bloc Records
To tie in with Record Store Day 2017, and to celebrate the launch of the 9th Soundwave Festival in Croatia, the folks at Eastern Bloc have combined forces with First Word Records to throw down a mother of a party at Stage & Radio, Port Street, Manchester.
Passing through on behalf of First Word Records will be…
Since first touching turntables in 1987, Mr Thing has earned the title "your favourite DJ's favourite DJ" with good reason. Brought to notoriety touring the globe as a member of The Scratch Perverts and as a DMC battle champion, his skills on the wheels is matched with an astounding knowledge of music. A professional digger, he's released a series of acclai...med compilations for BBE, and produced an array of heavyweight tracks in his own right - the Record Store Day trilogy for First Word being a prime example; a project that saw him collaborate with Tall Black Guy, Eric Lau and Kidkanevil. He'll be dropping a collaborative LP with Micall Parknsun very soon. Despite his gentleman-like good nature, don't get it twisted; he will destroy everyone in his path on the ones and twos, dropping styles across the board, creating pure fire on dancefloors worldwide.
CHILDREN OF ZEUS
Manchester's own Hip Hop Soul duo, Konny Kon and Tyler Daley will be representing properly as always. For those that don't know, they've been shown love far and wide, from Pete Rock to Toddla T to Chase & Status, from Boiler Room to The Source to Radio 1. Tyler recently appeared on Goldie's latest album, whilst Konny has also been working with Dub Phizix. The Lenzman rub of their track 'Still Standing' was named "Best Remix" at the 2016 Drum & Bass Arena Awards. They've done shows in the past year with Soul II Soul, Slick Rick, Mos Def, Slum Village, Fatima, The Pharcyde and De La Soul. Kicking off the year with the anthem 'Crown' & holding down a monthly show on NTS, you can expect big things for Zeus's yout this year. Their blend of sweet rhymes and sour times exemplify British black music at it's best and brightest.
The founder / A&R of First Word Records; releasing music by the likes of Tall Black Guy, Kaidi Tatham, Eric Lau, Darkhouse Family, Myele Manzanza, Ross McHenry, Souleance and tons more. Gilla is a forthright selector in his own right. His 'Excursions' nights pack out Bussey Building in South London & Miranda in East London on the regular, and he hosts a monthly show of the same name on Balamii Radio, playing Hip Hop, Soul, Beats, Jazz, Broken and beyond. Prior to establishing First Word, he was the daddy of seminal club-nights such as New Bohemia and Funky Mule in Leeds. Also a long-time resident at Soundwave Festival in Croatia, Gilla's eclectic sets never disappoint.
DJing parties since the early '90s, BobaFatt's mixes, radio shows and club sets have seen him awarded acclaim over the years from BBC 1Xtra, Mixcloud and Fact Magazine. In addition to hosting a weekly show on London's only Hip Hop station, Itch FM, he recently appeared on BBC Radio 6 Music. He's provided work for Who Sampled, Death Waltz, Solid Steel, Rough Trade, i-D, Dazed & Confused, R&S, The Guardian and DJ Yoda. Also a Soundwave resident, he's played far and wide, from Glastonbury to Fabric, and his Main Squeeze night, co-run with DJ Mo Fingaz, is approaching it's tenth year. A long-time vinyl pusher to boot, he is one of the most varied DJs in the game.
They will be joined in the basement by:
JESTERMAN and TASTE THE DIFF'RENCE will be keeping things toasty in the upstairs bar.
This is sure to be a night of unadulterated dopeness. Tell a friend. Put on your dancing shoes. We'll see ya there.

Easy Action Records and Truro's very own independent record store Music Nostalgia are hosting a night of some of the very best live music in Cornwall.
Three of Cornwall’s top up and coming bands are releasing singles to celebrate Record Store Day 2017. Record Store Day was originally set up to fly the flag for independent record stores countrywide drawing attention to the support they give to new music and to music lovers. Cornwall’s Easy Action Records has enabled the release of limited edition, vinyl, picture sleeve singles from Auction For The Promise Club, The Red Cords and The Velvet Hands. To celebrate the releases the three bands will be playing a special gig at The Old Bakery Truro on April 21st; Record Store Day Eve! The event will be opened by much vaunted Truro College band The Rezner and closed by Falmouth’s “Oh Darling” DJ Stan Duke.
The night is being supported by Truro’s own independent record store; Music Nostalgia. Copies of the three bands' singles will be available from 8am on Saturday 22nd at Music Nostalgia in Truro's Pannier Market, along with a fabulous selection of Record Store Day releases.
The night will be a fine example of how excellent the Cornish music scene is in 2017. Doors open at 7.45pm, the event will close at 00.45am
Tickets are £6 in advance and £7 on the door. Check the ticket link below to order tickets. The event is open to 16+
