Our first in-person LL event since the start of lockdown!! So excited to be back :)
Loose Lips’ Deep Cuts aims to share the diverse ways we experience music. Starting life as a monthly editorial feature with writers, DJs and artists responding to a shared theme, on September 13th we will be bringing that expressive energy to the Cause’s high definition speakers. Best believe we were planning this pre-COVID.
Expect explorative sets from an amazing variety of DJs and vocalists with their own indistinguishable vibe. Each set will take on a particular theme, a theme that will be reflected live by a visual artist, creating that set’s cover art on the spot.
All sets will go out live on The Cause’s native Threads Radio and be uploaded for re-listening, so don’t worry if Shazam lets you down!
All the profits from the event - and from the artworks’ sale - will go towards Ruff Sqwad Arts Foundation, a charity that helps young people discover their own potential in creative careers and life, using music sessions and partnerships to aid expression - https://www.ruffsqwadarts.org/about. This follows on from our recent 2-volume compilation album which was released in aid of them as well - https://looselips123.bandcamp.com!
Our headliner is an essential cult figure - and definitely not an EDM producer - MarshmeLLo. The House & Soul aficionado and NTS radio resident whose ‘Midnight Marauders’ show was the first to be broadcast on the station, we knew she had to play at the first socially distanced Loose Lips event, after reflecting on the sheer hypnosis she pulled off at a Josey Rebelle-curated Pickle Factory night last year.
Her set’s theme will be “Midnight Marauders of the Future”.
Closing out the day will be Don Sinini, a DJ, producer and singer whose unique take on Dancehall balances London charisma and melodic warmth, though his tastes stretch far and wide. (We had the honour of giving him his first official interview back in 2018, check it out; https://bit.ly/2QpQ7wb).
Presenting a very different but similarly breezy sound will be Rosy Ross, a senior producer and resident DJ at Threads radio, whose shows consistently serve a unique combination of wily grooves and faded glam, inspired by her seaside town youth.
Theme: “En Vacances”
Another totally different but toootally rad selector is Ifeoluwa, whose last Corsica Studios set displayed the DJ’s characteristic high energy fire, ranging from Footwork to Britney Spears. Since Ifeoluwa’s passions stretch across the bpm range, (as demonstrated by their contribution to the last Deep Cuts article alongside Don Sinini: https://bit.ly/34xI3ld) they will be packing a totally different breed of banger.
Then there is Tem, a rising DJ, promoter and 1020 Radio host whose show ‘Freedom of Groovement’ takes a 2 hour dive into a different country each month, with his Bristol-based night of the same name highlighting under-appreciated international DJs and bangers. You can only say this so many times in one event description, but this guy has a s e r i o u s collection of sonic gems.
Theme: “No Borders”
It wouldn’t be a Loose Lips event with appearance from our resident DJ roster, melting minds everywhere from Manchester to Macedonia since 2014. LL founder and bossman himself Medallion Man will be opening proceedings with a swirl of psychedelia - theme: “Enter The Trip” - before Felix Raman guides us into the eye of the storm with his “Dystopia Dub” set.
And last but not least (actually neither, he’ll be playing in the middle of the day) is Will Soer, Loose Lips editor and proud mama of Deep Cuts. Soer will be exploring the transcendent vibes from his Threads Radio show ‘Out Of Body Pop’, with help from next-gen vocal badass and Deep Cuts writer Julia Star (who chose this month’s Deep Cuts article title: DEAD INSIDE BUT IT’S OK), check out her new music video here: https://bit.ly/2R54aHL
Theme: “Out Of Body Airlines”
