Nik Muzka is in the hot seat this week, insisting that you needs these bits & pieces in your life...


Saturday, 8th May: DJ Food @ The Black Box, Belfast
One of Ninja Tunes finest DJs will be playing Black Box as part of the Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival line up. I've been a fan of Ninja Tune for almost 2 decades and DJ Food is always worth checking out and anyone who saw his live AV set last year at Trans will know what this.

Saturday, 29th May: Annie Mac presents Zinc, Delphic Live, Skream & Greenmoney @ The Ulster Hall, Belfast
Annie has came along way from the days of doing the door at Shine and it's a joy to see her back on home turf and bringing some fine DJs with her. For me the highlights will be Zinc and his new crackhouse sound which isn't a million miles from bass heavy D&B sound he once pioneered. I'll also be excited to hear Skream rinse out the Ulster Hall sound system with his wall shakin dubstep. Delphic live and Greenmoney fill out an impressive bill in a unique venue.

Friday, 9th April: Ecker feat Kabdriver & Deadman w/Residents @ The Menagerie, Belfast
Ecker is one of my fav local nights and have had some impressive guests over the last year that combine local talent with some of the freshest artists on the electronica scene. The music policy combines dubstep, electro, krunky bass and busted beats. If you like a refreshing change to the usual dance music in Belfast you will love Ecker. BASS IN YA FACE!!!


Benga & Walsh - Biscuit Factory (Biscuit Factory Recs)
This is the flip side to the new Benga release on Biscuit Factory and as usual is right on the money. The sound here is huge, combining rave elements with a slow paced half step beat and bass structure. I love the groove to this track and the almost cheesey vocodered vocal. Both tracks are worth buying and I'm sure will be played at many rave ups.

Thomas - Wendy Not Walter (Full Pupp)
Hard to choose a favourite track from the debut Prins Thomas album as they are all so good with not a duff track from start to finish. Though i singled out a track I would suggest buying the entire album as it really works when listened to from start to finish, an inter stellar disco boogie journey. While it works as a home listening album most tracks will no doubt work great in clubs and will feature in a number of DJ sets. I would love to see this live as he has Terje and Lindstrom perform on the album, the world needs more live disco.

Seiji - Elevator (Seijimusic)
WOW, 2 absolute club monsters. I've went for Elevator which has a driving, broken tribal beat that will work a treat in the club. Parts remind me of old jacking chicago house with the use of bouncey toms and stomping kick drums. I could imagine Derek Carter or Sneak dropping this but also hearing the likes of Zinc and Toddla T use it in their sets. I can't wait to play it out and will def be putting it in my new mix. Roll on the next Seiji release.
