Ferrero O Shea

On February 9th bodytonic's Tayor gets togged out for his much anticpated Space Camp debut. He was one for the first DJs in Ireland to switch from vinyl to cds and it was an easy transition as most of his records were warped, scratched or belonged to John Mahon. Normally we would have asked him for a chart but there is no need as he plays the same records in most sets, so expect to hear m.a.n.d.y – oh superman or mfa – the difference.

As ever he will be joined by the Space Camp residents who will be getting through a ton of new goodies including new material from: Hercules & Love Affair, Radio Slave, Peter Visti, Christian Prommer, Lindstrom, Smith & Mudd, Chicken Lips, Maelstrom, Lee Douglas, Alden Tyrell, Mock n Toof etc etc

Venue : The Village
Date : Feb 09

One of the first records I bought React 2 Rhythm "Intoxication" which originally came out in (1991). I still think it’s an uplifting record though it may sound a bit dated nowadays. I always played the leftfield remix. Incidentally, leftfield are probably one of the best electronic acts I have ever seen. You can download the track below

The Wizard

Paul Hardcastle is largely known for his 1985 number one hit "19". One of my favourite tracks is his cover version of D-Train's classic "You're the One For Me", which is segued with his own compositions "Daybreak" and "A.M." and its simply fantastic. And I recently came across an instrumental track he produced before "19",. Called "Rainforest" which you can download below. He also remixed Johnny Logan..

When I first started buying records, one of my favourite labels was Soma. Based in Glasgow and set up back in 1991, over the years has seen a host of includes producers like Glaswegian natives Slam & Ewan Pearson to Daft Punk and Funk D'Void release quality music.
The first soma record I bought was ‘Positive Education’ by Stuart McMillan & Orde Meikle (Slam) but I always preferred their first release, which was the seminal 'Eterna'.

Gibson Brothers

One of my favourite disco records is the Gibson Brothers track "Ooh What A Life" and I have often heard in sets by the likes of Rahaan, Mudd and Danny Wang. The instrumental version, which is on Island records, is as as good as disco gets in my opinion. It is a record produced by Daniel Vangarde who son is Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk fame.

The Dramatics

I was watching the film Dead Presidents recently and it has a great soundtrack with all the soul greats included from Issac Hayes to The Temptations. There are some cracking tracks like "(Don't Worry) If There's a Hell Below, We're All Going to Go", by Curtis Mayfield and "If You Want Me To Stay", by Sly & The Family Stone. But the stand out track for me is The Dramatics – Get up and get down which I often play early on when Djing.

Space Camp would like to big up anyone who has been at one of our events last year.

2007 saw a host of DJs play for us in a multitude of venues. Some of the highlights for us were Nordic legends Prins Thomas & Todd Terje, Dirtybird Claude Von Stroke playing his third gig for us in the pod, Mano Le Toughs first live show, the French mob of I:Cube + Joakim + Pilooski, Ultrashock, Dancepig, Space Camp Birthday, In Flagranti, Eskimo’s Dirk De Ruyck, Dj Historys Bill Brewster and our course our trusty residents

We have also had some quality nights in the Village for our monthly Saturday residency with Manchesters Marco Giannini and Polaroids Joe Morris & Nick Smyth doing us proud. It was also the year of some cracking co-promotions with the likes of Downtownsounds, Shock & the Winter Olympics culminating in whopper of a NYE party.

Next year we will continue our monthly night in the Village and we will be doing some monthly parties in RiRa. We will be welcoming back the likes of Todd Terje in February and bringing over some new blood like Aeroplane in April. Keep a watchful eye on for more info.
