Kapsize... Joker... Heavy...

Just teasing, early morning beats, this one is an old one now but my god it's a fave and nothing will get you more in the mood for a visit from the legendary Joker!! You checked our Myspace right?!

Dante's Fried Chicken!

Right up our street... Food nuts who love BASS and, well, FOOD! Easy. Dante is a New Yorker who combines the two. This episode sees him making Chocolate Coconut Pumpkin Pie (yeahh booii!) with PdJ favourite Theophilus London. Check back on the blog for a mix we put up of his. It's special!!

We will collab with Dante one of these days... For the good of food. For the good of bass.

Friday, March 20, 2009


10 years in and now online. Perfect we say. In a world on the web it seems the best place to be. For sure we miss those amazing print processes they insisted on; the insane attention to detail in producing something that is to keep for life, not throw-away. But lets not get negative. The world is changing and so did they. They deserve huge respect for holding it down and reppin' the world of music on Spain's behalf.

Now we get it harder, better, faster, stronger... PEOPLE THIS IS SERIE B!! FOR CHRISTS SAKE SHOW SOME RESPECT!!


We spoke to the boys on top...

What is your current favourite record?

It has to be Depth Charge's "Mecha Squirrel", Higamos Hogamos' "Major Blitzkrieg", Sneaky's "Feel Like a King" and The P Brother's "Outta Control".

What is the ultimate end of the night track?

Haven't closed a night in quite a few, but anything from Fake Blood will leave people satisfied and ready for the after hours...

Which artist gets ultimate Serie B respect right now?

Berlin´s own RQM.

What parties are showing the rest how it's done?

Mmmm. To me, Urbarritmo in Zaragoza, Desparrame & Plat du Jour in Barcelona, and Montaña Sagrada in Madrid. To some this might sound dick riding, to me, it´s the truth!

What is your Plat du Jour?

Cigarettes, diet cokes & Arroz Negre!

A couple of gems to reminisce...

MadOnnAs del DiA $$ GuapItas du jOUr

Hoy, voy a empezar con mi homenaje a modern matriarchs, fly females y chicas cutres.

Mona Lisa "What a Fuckin' Nightmare" Vito de My Cousin Vinny...


We salute you xxx

Reecha's 'Menu del Dia'...

1 more sleep and we are right there!!

Hold up Reecha, what's the word...

What is your current favourite record?

Brackles’ remix of Tempa T’s ‘Next Hype’ (forthcoming on No Hats No Hoods!) is killing it for me at the moment. Plus pretty much everything Starkey touches.

What is the ultimate end of the night track?

When I played on valentines day I dropped DZ’s remix of ‘Do For Love’ as my last track and people started slow dancing so maybe that if I am feeling romantic. Or ‘The Message is Love’ cus that’s the only point you can play it really.

Which artist gets ultimate Reecha respect right now?

I am pretty obsessed with funky right now so Marcus Nasty is an obvious choice – we’re starting a label with him soon, so watch out for that too. Otherwise Oneman is probably my favourite DJ right now – he’s consistently jaw dropping. Label wise I’m really into what Dress 2 $weat are doing up in Glasgow – they’ve got a similar musical ethos as us.

Oneman innit...

What parties are showing the rest how it's done?

Er… I am slightly biased here! But apart from Dirty Canvas – Tomb crew are starting a new night in London called Future Bass, which is bound to be good. Trouble Vision and Crazy Legs in Bristol are both great parties too.

What is your Plat du Jour?

Cheese, Sleeping and Ribena.

Are you the self proclaimed Asian George Clooney?

YES!! (Haha... We added that!)

DJ Slick Dixx's 'Menu del Dia'

Come Saturday Barcelona favourite DJ SLICK DIXX will bring his own mix of Shefeeeel Grime, Barcelona Bass, Glitch Heaven and Blog Fidget. My god. It's all going off when Dixx is at the wheels.


The glitch master tells us what it's all a boot...

What is your current favourite record?

It's going to be a while before anyone tops the Crookers E.P: 'Il Buono, Il Cattivo, Il Brutto.' Pure dancefloor terror backing Italian grandeur on Mad Descent.

What is the ultimate end of the night track?

I'm a product of the nineties and can't help sliding in some classic M25 warehouse tracks at some point in the night. 'Chime' by Orbital should do the trick at 97 out of 100 fiestas.

Which artist gets ultimate Slick Dixx respect right now?

Toddla T. Mixes, remixes, production, all good. A healthy respect for tradition combined with a complete disrespect for genre.


What parties are showing the rest how it's done?

Kabal in Sheffield, Je Deteste La Musique in Grenoble, Sweat Shack in Berlin, The Party Harders' nights in Brussels, Desparrame in Barcelona. Intimate venues with silly DJs and sweaty happy people. Plus fit girls.

What is your Plat du Jour?

My Plat Du Jour is a paella by my lovely gipsy eyes girlfriend and Galician white wine chosen by me. Happy birthday to me!

Listen to DJ Slick Dixx LIVE on Samurai FM right now...

Staf Magazine x Serie B = PIG LOVE!

Two of our favourite magazines in Spain say what's up to Plat du Jour and are looking forward to a big night out... Staf say this and Serie B say this.

Serie B also launches it's fresh site but more to come on that one!! I mean, this is big right!!

Meneo's 'Menu del Dia'

Meneo, well, you know Meneo right?!?! They are the duo that are cracking the world right now. Diplo thinks they're amazing; they even got their brand new Santa Nalga album mastered at Mad Decent HQ. They just seem to catch your imagination and throw any preconception right out the window. On Saturday at Plat du Jour x Dirty Canvas Mr Rigo Pex will play a DJ set of Cumbian freshness and bass wobble.

What's up Rigo Pex...

What is your current favourite record?

I'm listening a lot to Marcelo Fabian's album called 'Beija Flor', one of his early works where the balance between minimal studio production and raw latin rhythms combine into a subtle minimal record.

Marcelo Fabian at Zizek...

What is the ultimate end of the night track?

There's a marimba-waltz track with flute that makes everyone leave the dance floor floating in peace.

Which artist gets ultimate Meneo respect right now?

El Sonido del Príncipe... A guy from Amsterdam doing pretty cool electro cumbia.

What parties are showing the rest how it's done?

Well, I have to say the ones we've played at Antics in Dublin, the crowd is just amazing and it seems it's fueled by a weekly fresh line.up.

What is your Plat du Jour?

It´s a software called Little Sound Dj for the Gameboy*

Yo Rigo... See you on Saturday... Bring your airhorn and your best Cumbian moves!!

K**O'S 'Menu del Dia'

K**O's one of our unstoppable selectors... A member of both the Plat du Jour & Desparrame crews while also producing some rather fresh cuts of his own and alongside Delorean's Ho$oi. This is HUGE, he has made the first two tracks free to download and you can be sure they are going to be BIG! Plus we launch them officially this weekend at Plat du Jour x Dirty Canvas at Club Mondo, Barcelona.

We spoke to the man of the hour...

What is your current favourite record?

I´d say Perempay'n'Dee's "Buss It", a UK Funky anthem, or the Supra1 Remix of a track by Little Jinder called "Polyhedron", it was released last year but I still haven't had enough. At home, it's anything by Ennio Morricone.

What is the ultimate end of the night track?

Right now it would be 2000F & JKamata's "You Don´t Know What Love Is", so beautiful...

Which artist gets ultimate K**O respect right now?

Animal Collective and Durrty Goodz.

What parties are showing the rest how it's done?

Bok Bok and L-Vis 1990 do a night called Night Slugs dedicated to heavy bass music and grimey house, I´d be there every month if I could.

What is your Plat du Jour?

Bocadillos and comic books!

Ya podéis descargar "Chimo XL" de K**O y "Culito de Oro" de K**O y Ho$oi; los dos hits de la casa son ya bangers reincidentes en los sets de Dj Chelis (Robot/Urbarritmo) y han sido charteados por Kazey & Bulldog (Dress 2 $weat), los reyes europeos del B-more.

Here they are... The huge, the mighty... Chimo XL & Culito de Oro. DJ Chelis (Robot/Urbarritmo) & Kazey & Bulldog (Dress 2 Sweat) are all over them!

Mumdance's 'Menu del Dia'...

We have 5 days until Plat du Jour x Dirty Canvas at Mondo in Barcelona. Each day we are going to feature an artist on the bill and give you that little bit more!!

We chatted to Mumdance about what is his Menu Del Dia...

Current Favourite Record?

My Current favorite record for the club is a Current Value Remix of a Donny track called "Symptomless Coma", the production on it is insane, not sure how many other people like it but I've been playing it loads cos I just love hearing it really loud!!! My fave home listening record at the mo is either "Turnstyle" Hot Water Music or "For Want Of" by Rites of Spring.

Ultimate End of Night Track?

At the moment I'm doing like this cockney thug medley thing with all the remixes all mashed up live, either that or one of my own tunes cos I'm an egomaniac.

Which Artists get Ultimate Respect?

High Rankin is who I grew up listening to. Who is killing it right now... Tomb Crew, Radioclit, Trim & a new guy called Shortstuff.

Your Best Parties?

In the UK it's def Bigger Than Barry in Brum & Shit The Bed in Bristol, two promoters who REALLY know how to throw a good party. Also when I played Paris Social Club i had an EPIC time.

Your Plat Du Jour?

The Wire, my iPhone, Logic (the music production software), Bubble & Squeak (the food) & Stacey Slater from Eastenders (in character).

Mumdance is coming to Barcelona on Saturday to make us crazy, get warmed-up with this little offering GLOBAL BASS MIX and we'll see you at the front!



If you slept on the first one, make sure you don't on this one! The various artists on the record are pushing the bmore/club scene aaand Mike 2600 always puts mad amounts of effort into anything he does. As you can see in the video, everything was screenprinted... I think he used 4 colours, which is extremely time consuming - but always worth it. Mike's an amazing graphic designer, a great dj and a hype producer (as you'll hear from checking both doittoits). One of them gosh darn Renaissance men I love to hate so much!

The Very Best (Esau Mwamwaya & Radioclit)...

I am so late on this but it is really really great and should not be missed. It was a project that Radioclit did with Esau Mwamwaya, some amazing versions of MIA and Vampire Weekend but the whole thing is an essential listen. We were put onto this by Ho$oi and K**O so big ups to them. Plus it is FREE. Put out through Fairtilizer.

Landry's been hard at work...

Check the freshness HERE!

Theophilus London...

This is one of the best mixtapes I have heard in ages. THEOPHILUS LONDON is turning heads right now so keep 'em peeled! Download this Charming Mixtape HERE!

Shake Aletti: Sheffield Popfunk

It's probably no accident that I heard about these because of a Toddla T remix, he of the power to turn more or less anything into a guaranteed slam-dunk banger. Coming of a bit like a Cash-Converters Chromeo, Shake Aletti offer further evidence that Sheffeeeeeeel is the balls of pop.
