We’re back in business after a, pretty long, summer break but we’ve got good news for y’all. We’re throwing another party: Tuesday the 19th of October is a date you should all mark in your agendas!

Like we promised on our first flyer we at Swingers Club would provide our parties with local heroes and national superstars. After 2 rather succesful editions that goal is almost (completely) achieved. We invited Belgian stars like Compuphonic, King DJ aka 4T4, Cook-E & Matik and young talents like Liss., Cauchy and Leroy (The latter even became co-host of our parties.)

For our 3th edition we go even further: our headliner is both a local hero and an (inter)national superstar. We’re talking about RAOUL LAMBERT of course! He knows the Rumba-dancefloor better than anyone else, he has an incredible eclectic record collection and he leaves everyone behind in terms of dj-skills. So that is briefly why he is our man for our 3th edition!

Also on the bill are MEN & MACHINES (Two dj’s, radioshow-hosts and party-organizers from Glasgow.) And you can already hear it, these guys breath music! Their parties are held in the heart of Glasgow at Stereo Club. They already played along dj’s as: Optimo, Serge Santiago, Pantha Du Prince and DFA acts like Shit Robot & Gavin Russom. So, we’re really proud to have them on their first visit to Belgium!

The line-up will be completed by our resident crew: KING & COUSIN, LEROY and TIBSON.

KING & COUSIN are the founders of Swingers Club and for this 3th edition they will open the night. They already played at events such as 10 Days Off & Laundry Day and in clubs like Libertine Supersport & Café Capital and their mixes were already broadcasted on Pure FM & Radio Scorpio. They will carefully select some smooth records to get y’all in the mood!

LEROY already played at every Swingers Club party and has become co-host of the party. At the time of our first party Leroy was barely 18 years old, but we saw a lot of potential in this guy! Today it seems that we’re not the only believers, even the people from Studay, a big open-air party in Antwerp acknowledge Leroy‘s good taste and great skills!

TIBSON is the newest Swingers-crew member. This 19 year old is maybe not the most experienced dj on the bill but he compensates that with a big dose of enthusiasm! Tibson is probably the most deep/tech-house oriënted dj of the crew, but his musical universe goes far beyond Detroit and Berlin, as he also likes to dig up some disco grooves from time to time. You’ll catch him behind the turntables in the early hours..

Jacques Renault just did a new dj-mix for Anthem Magazine, you can download it here. Expect some crazy disco grooves and edits, from Bohannon and D-Train, but also some new tunes like Shit Robot‘s latest dfa-single.

Jacques told us that they got a lot of stuff in the pipeline: There’s coming a new OTP Party Breaks release at the end of April, which will contain 4 Jacques Renault edits, an edit picture disc on Public Release and a new Runaway single ‘Broken Man’ which will be accompanied with a live remix ( as a teaser of the new Runaway live-project) and a remix from the hands of Brennan Green.

Furthermore you can expect  Jacques Renault remixes for John Talabot on Permanent Vacation and Roni Nachum on Future Classic and Runaway remixes for Neurotic Drum Band, Moonwalk, Creatures Of Habit, Birds & Souls and AKA JK.

Also check out his recent release on Mystery Meat together with Lee Douglas.  What a busy bee!

libertine_supersport

On 10 october 2009 a new club will be born: Libertine Supersport. It is the new club by Renaud Deru & Lorenzo Serra, the guys behind Dirty Dancing. They’re leaving Mirano to start a fresh new concept at K-Nal (the venue where they already held their Summer Club parties).

The spirit of the new Brussels club is a liberal one, hence the name, anything is possible and everyone is welcome. But the most important aspect of a nightclub (for us) is ofcourse the music! The resident team is divided into 2 categories Libertine & Supersport, the first one is more disco-orientated, the latter is more mainroom house & electro-orientated. The Libertine dj’s maison are: Andy Faisca, Mustang, Dirk (Smile), Guy-Ohm, L-fêtes, Rick Shiver and Rob & Zoopsie, the Supersport resident dj’s are: Compuphonic, Jean Montevideo, Cosy Mozzy, Cook-E & Matik, Kid Strike, Mickey, So’Lex and Wirspielen.

On October the 24th the new club will welcome the Italians Do It Better family: Glass Candy, Desire and Mike Simonetti, so that will be certainly something to look out for! And the week after DFA‘s Shit Robot will perform at Libertine. Other names yet confirmed are: Tensnake & Einmusik (14/11), Still Going & Jacques Renault (21/11), Vincenzo & Renaissance Man (28/11).

The first details about the new club look extremely interesting. A good resident team in combination with a bunch of quality international guests, that’s what we can expect from Libertine Supersport! But Libertine is not the only club in Belgium with an excellent taste of music, the calendar of Spark, the saturday nights at Antwerps finest: Café Capital look absolutely fabulous as well, and certainly for us because we will be playing there 2 times this autumn.

This Saturday, the 19th, Spark welcomes Âme, the week after Michael Reinboth from Compost Records will perform at Capital. And in October they’ll have following guests: Blackjoy on the 3th of October, Mugwump a week after, the 17th of October Boy 8 Bit and last but certainly not least Motor City Drum Ensemble on the 24th!

We (King & Cousin) will do the warming up for Mugwump on the 10th of october and also on the 14th of november for no one less than Dixon, labelhead of  Innervisions!

Spark is the new saturday night concept of Café Capital in Antwerp. It is the  follow up concept of ‘Play’, where we had the honour to dj too a few months ago.

The first international guests of this fresh new party concept were Pilooski, Shit Robot, Chymera and Detroit legend Theo Parrish. Artists who will perform in a couple of weeks are  Trus’me, Tom Trago and Âme.

An eclectic selection of fine artists like we could expect  from Café Capital. Last season they welcomed  icons like François K. and Carl Craig but also promising newcomers like Holy Ghost! and Jacques Renault.

To end this post we’ve got 2 old school goodies for you. Both space-disco tracks from 1979, the first one is from Munich Machine aka Giorgio Moroder. The second is a very beautiful and not so well-known track by Hans-Peter Stroër.

DFA LOGOS

We are going to be spoiled this summer, New York-based DFA Records will release a lot of new stuff! Some of the artists are new, others are well known routiniers. Altair Nouveau, wish is Brandon Mitchell from San Francisco, will make his DFA debut in July with a 12″ in collaboration with the Solardisco imprint from Glasgow based artist Maelstrom. You can hear ‘Space Fortress’ and ‘Showdown’ on his Myspace profile.

Another newcomer is James Curd, who already did a remix for The Juan Maclean on DFA. He’ll also release his first 12 inch in July. You can check out his vocal-track ‘We just won’t stop’ on his myspace as well.

This week Still Going, which is Eric Duncan from Rub ‘n’ Tug and Liv Spencer from House Of House, annouced that their second single will be released this summer as well! ‘Still Going Theme’ was one of our favorite tracks of 2007, so we are really looking forward to this! Another thing where we are really looking forward to is the new single from Holy Ghost! which will be called ‘I Will Come Back.’ We don’t know when it will be released, but the single will probably contain remixes from DJ Mehdi and Classixx, who recently did a great remix for Phoenix‘ new single ‘Lisztomania’

In a few weeks the new Shit Robot will be finally released as well. ‘Simple Things’ will contain remixes from Todd Terje and Serge Santiago and will be in stores at the end of June. We are especially digging the Serge Santiago remix, which comes with a cool break in the middle of the track, and after the break the songs transforms into a real piano-house anthem!

In Case you didn’t noticed: there were recently 2 new releases added to the DFA catalogue too: Black Meteoric Star and Walter Jones. Black Meteoric Star is Gavin ‘The Wizzard’ Russom, who used to repear the old school analog synths for DFA. He made a hypnotic analogue synth album with spacey and acidic sounds. Walter Jones on the other hand delivered a great electronic-disco EP. The bassline of his track ‘Living Without Your Love’ is descriped as something between ‘Another One Bites The Dust’ and Daft Punk’s ‘Around The World’ Sounds good? Yes it does!

To End this post I’ve found a dj-mix from House Of House. You’ll probably know them because their first song ‘Rushing To Paradise’ was a real hype. They did this mix to promote their fabric gig from last month.
