The Bridge

In October ’98 Phil Mison and I were bored so decided to throw our own little loft party in Camden. Friends helped, dirty walls were covered with white fabric (thanks Ange!), balloons blown and a few hundred people filled the space, got high and danced. The DJs on the night were Ross Allen and Jon Marsh. We asked them to give us a mix of some of the records they’d be playing on the night so we could give everyone cassettes on the way out and they could hear the music again. Here’s the mixes, both Jon and Ross on firing form.

Atlas: 1969 Ibiza Article

September 24, 2009

Amazing piece from Atlas Magazine, which starts with a search for Herman (of the Hermits fame), then goes on to deal with the drug trade, the influx of hippies, the German ‘tourists’ (also known as Nazi’s) and the Ibizan attitude to drugs – ‘let the foreigners destroy themselves… as long as they don’t involve us’. There is a great conclusion to the piece – ‘all is possible and any story can be believed, or disbelieved, on the island of Ibiza without straining the imagination’.

Glad to have got a mix from London-based Swedish born Hampus Gunnarsson. Hampus is part of the Top Nice London/Stockholm axis alongside Guy Gormley and DJ Alonzo, throwing parties for beautiful people in different venues around Stockholm and London. Always a good vibe wherever they are. Hampus is normally hitting it on more of an Italo tip but here we are with an eclectic mix of white soul through to afro and disco. Harvey fans will enjoy.

Boy's Own Bogner Regis Flyer
Boy's Own Flyer

In a recent interview for the Defected website Darren Emerson was asked about his initial involvement with the Boy’s Own crew. Here’s what he said…

When and how did you start playing at the parties for Boy’s Own?

The one that sticks out is the one where Andrew asked me fill in for because he couldn’t make it and he requested me to play for him. I was honoured because I looked up to Andrew and thought it was a fantastic thing to be asked to do, at a young age as well. It was in Bogner Regis so it was a weekender, I remember going on and doing my usual thing of using two records and starting off with a long intro. I remember Norman Cook was there and it was the first house party he’d been to, and he always says now in interviews that I was the first person to get him into house music. I remember using Robert Owen’s ‘I’ll Be Your Friend’ over and over again just looping it and going back and forth. Justin Robertson was playing there as well, it was really good fun to play that weekender. I remember waking up the next day and feeling a bit hazy sharing a hair of the dog with Charlie Chester! I spent that Sunday with him at the bar having Sunday afternoon pints.

Thanks to Phil Mison (love the way you wrote ‘now that we’ve found love’ on the flyer Phil – Ed)
