Vladivar Vodka presents Joe Ransom – Fabric London

Featuring Dj Joe Ransom resident Hip-hop & Breaks DJ at renowned super club - Fabric London, with local Djs Charlie Diamonds, Marek and Bryce.

$20 Presale Tickets available from Real Groovy, DMC and Sandwiches.

Joe Ransom’s DJing is infectious. His blistering sets are packed with hot, heavy jams that you can’t stop nodding your head at, and moving your feet to. In a London weekend he might play five or six times, zipping around town from gig-to-gig, hitting the decks everywhere from Fabric’s main room to his friends’ flats. His sound - an upfront blend of hip hop, breaks, dancehall, pop, and Asian underground - was founded in The Big Smoke, but is welcomed worldwide. During the past year Joe opened for Basement Jaxx in Japan, toured Europe with the Plump DJs, and provided DJ support at Zinc’s album launches. Spin back four years, and Joe Ransom was promoting nights in Bristol, intent on moving to London and making things happen. Cut to the present, and you find a bulletproof DJ, budding producer, and one of FABRICLIVE’s key players. ‘FABRICLIVE 20’ is his first mix album.

On Sale Soon…


Saturday 16

S-ence & Sandwiches presents TRANSIT Featuring Matt Drake (Soul Sonic Productions / Crucial Records) One of Aotearoa's most dynamic and energetic DJs, Matt Drake has been a leading figure in New Zealand's techno and electro scene since the early '90s... His performance style is unique. Funky, eclectic and just plain dynamic - he DJs using techniques from Hip Hop style beat juggling, scratching and cutting to third turntable layering in addition to club styles. Matt's selection is focused on high tech future soul with a similar vein running through out - tough, funky, hypnotic and more than a little twisted. The inclusion of effects and drum machines only adds to the richness of each performance. Whether playing at massive out door festivals or intimate club events Matt Drake's performances are always electrifying, emotive, unique and powerful.

Howard Davis Review: From Free Press to Fancy Dress - Spielberg's The Post

Stephen Spielberg's The Post is an opportune newsroom drama in which a corrupt Republican president wages war against the "liberal media," as its plucky proprietor risks economic and legal ruin to bring the Pentagon Papers to public light. Its true protagonist is publisher Katharine Graham, a stringently diplomatic businesswoman, reluctantly compelled to take an overtly political stance in the interests of democracy and freedom of the press.

Howard Davis Review: The Black Dog of Empire - Joe Wright's Darkest Hour'

On the eve of England's contorted efforts to negotiate its ignominious retreat from Europe and the chaotic spectacle of the Tory party ratifying its undignified departure from a union originally designed to prevent another World War, there has been a renewed appetite for movies about 1940. More>>

Howard Davis Review: Anger Begets Anger - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

For fans of what Ricky Gervais termed "number movies" (Seven Samurai, The Magnificent Seven, Ocean's 11, Se7en), Martin McDonagh's latest offering will be a welcome addition to the roster. The Irish playwright turned screenwriter and director has produced another quirky and darkly comic tragedy that evolves around the futility of anger and grief, retribution and revenge. More>>

Howard Davis: Sexting in George Dawe's Genevieve - Part I

Te Papa's permanent collection includes an enormous oil painting by the English artist George Dawe called Genevieve (from by a poem by S.T. Coleridge entitled 'Love') that was prominently featured in the 2013 exhibition Angels & Aristocrats. Compare the massive immensity of the bard's gorgeously gilded harp with the stubby metallic handle of the Dark Knight's falchion, both suggestively positioned at crotch-level. Dawe's enormous canvas invokes a whole history of blushing that pivots around a direct connection to sexual arousal. More>>


Ethnomusicology: Malian ‘Desert Blues’ Revolutionaries To Storm WOMAD

Malian band Tinariwen (playing WOMAD NZ in March 2018) are a true musical revolutionaries in every sense. Active since 1982, these nomadic Tuareg or ‘Kel Tamashek’ (speakers of Tamashek) electric guitar legends revolutionised a traditional style to give birth to a new genre often called ‘desert blues’. They also have a history rooted deeply in revolution and fighting for the rights of their nomadic Tamashek speaking culture and people. More>>

Gordon Campbell: Best New Music Of 2017

Any ‘best of list’ has to be an exercise in wishful thinking, given the splintering of everyone’s listening habits... But maybe… it could be time for the re-discovery of the lost art of listening to an entire album, all the way through. Just putting that idea out there. More>>
