More Bum Rushes Per Capita Than Anywhere Else

More Bum Rushes Per Capita Than Anywhere Else In The Southern Hemisphere!!!!

I'm sorry I tried to look for interesting things to do in the capital this weekend, but all I could find was us... :) so I'm gonna give up up for Mu all by himself tonight, Zen and Koa this Saturday, Slowdeck this coming Wednesday... and Larnie's (our chef) awesome creations, especially her soup!

This weekend and beyond at The Horn...

Friday June 22nd - Mu... all by himself Mu's taking you on a journey tonight...Give it up for a kaleidoscopic blend of hip hop, future funk, soul and other fat back beats baked to perfection by Roots Foundation founding member, Fat Freddys front-man and Fonky Monk Mu !! Beware of bum-rushers (see bottom for definition)

Saturday 23rd - Zen & Koa Zen is living the DJs dream; by day he vends crisp tunes from Chelsea Records in Manners Mall bringing the best of it to the Matterhorn and the world on Saturday nights. You can check him out on The Jewel School radio show on Radio Active 89FM from 7-9 every Saturday and down at The Horn from 10pm playing that new West London styles sound, afro Cuban rhythms, salsa, jazz breaks, house beats and more butt wiggling styles than you can wiggle a butt at! This Week: Roots Foundation key player Koa joins Zen and with a fresh swag of vinyl I'm hard pressed to describe what he'll be playing, all I can say is Koa is the king of mixing it up, with one ear on the blackest roots sounds and the other at the front of the new musical spectrum what ever he drops, I know that you'll be lovin' it!

Sunday 24th - The Matterhorn presents Gilles Peterson Worldwide I gotta say WE LOVE GILLESŠ he does pretty well for an in demand international DJ, who attends all the best festivals in the world as well as playing a weekly club night in London, and to top that all off, his Worldwide show plays weekly on BBC¹s Radio One and he records a special version for us. He has long been respected by hip hop and drum n bass artists, while the new breed of garage and house acts cite him as a major influence. Tune in 6-8pm on Radio Active 89FM presented by The Matterhorn.

Wednesday 27th - Slowdeck (AK direct) It's that time of year again when a small group of old school Auckland DJs head south to the main lands beautiful Hammner Springs to undergo the '100% Blood Flush' made popular by the Rolling Stone's Keith Richards. Returning revitalised to the North some plan to play a few special gigs on the way, a 'Cure Tour' if you will. So join Slowdeck at the peak of perk as he touches down at the capitols Matterhorn for one night only to pack the peace pipe, play some crazy gypsy music and take a brave crack a the man Mu's absinth quaffing crown!

Saturday 30th - B.lo and Ah Um We're giving hard working Zen a night off, and switching things around this week to accommodate Mr expansions - b.lo and Jewel School beat man - Au Um.

Thursday 5th Expansions with b.lo This Bass Frontiers and Stereo Nasties resident plays a complex blend of soul and technology that goes beyond the surface of music for dancing. Voted by Matterhorn staff as DJ most resembling a socialist dictator B.lo is super serious about his music which means anything from rare jazz, indie, soul, electronica, breaks etc, head music is his speciality.

This Week: A mixed bag is DJ Clinton Smiley's thing, he's a big fan of the 2 step garage craze, but he's a dedicated old house and techno head too, plus he'll throw in a few of the hits, a few remixes of the hits and no doubt a cheesy anthem or two... big fun!

Thursday 12th July - B.lo presents Fable and Deep Needs! Fable presents Deep Needs, a Drum and Bass label showcasing a collection of Aotearoa drum and bass from Christchurch... this is the release party, join us for fresh new tunes and a couple of hella cool drum and bass DJs!

Glossary: A Bum-rusher is a DJ who takes over the decks while another DJ is playing, there are many sneaky techniques for doing this (and they practise at home I believe)... eg: " just got this new tune in, mind if I jump up and throw it on, you're gonna love it" or "Can I just have a look at that turntable, seems to be spinning funny" bum-rushers often have Dutch courage!
