Elado

  • Eclectic

Elado’s lifelong love affair with music has long earned him a reputation as a driving force within his home city scene in Tel Aviv. Avidly collecting records for three decades and DJing for the best part of two, in 2020 he stormed the edit world as his kaleidoscopic palette were heard for the first time through productions on globally-renowned, prominent labels, including Brooklyn-based label Razor-N-Tape. For many years Elado has been an ardent edit enthusiast. He fervidly digs for wax in every corner of the world for the purpose of sourcing obscure, vintage cuts to chop and edit.

Until 2020, giving tracks a rerub was a private pursuit with none being released, but as with many artists, the pandemic afforded him time to hone his craft. His genre-melding, globe-trotting debut productions on Eddie C’s Red Motorbike and revered New York imprint Razor-N-Tape put him on the map as the “go-to-guy” of the scene, with him clocking peer support from Antal, Jacques Renault, marcel vogel and Folamour, among more. From downtempo folk to peak time disco and banging acid, the productions are carefully crafted with the intention of amplifying club nights from beginning to end as he is intent on reaching a point where his whole set is exclusively his material, and he’s already halfway there.

A busy release schedule for 2021 brings his set ambitions closer to completion. His distinctive editor’s touch was heard via Swedish label G.A.M.M, Brazilian outpost Barefoot Beats, and soon will be on wax via Portugal imprint Bonfido Disques, Glasgow-based Secret Squirrel, and an anticipated reappearance on Razor-N-Tape, this time on the remix duties. his 3 last releases has topped the juno records chart and his tunes can be heard in countless sets in the festival season.

Festivals are also discovering ELADO’s dancefloor potential, he already played as a headliner at Wake The Lake festival in Croatia alongside Bradley Zero, Gerd Janson and Roman Fluegel. he did a successful Brooklyn tour and just returned from his first mexican tour where he was the headliner on various big events amongst a string of other dance events yet to be announced

Greg Wilson is one of UK dance music’s true legends. With a sound that touches on funk, disco, house, electro he is a legendary party-starter with an immaculate approach to selection and programming. He joins us this July for a very rare four hour set.

Greg began DJing in 1975 and is regarded as one of the most important figures on the UK dance scene. He enjoyed hugely popular residencies in the early eighties at Wigan Pier and Manchester’s majorly influential Legend, having originally started out in his hometown of New Brighton. He was a pioneer of mixing in the UK and in 1983 he became the first ‘dance music’ specialist hired for a regular weekly session at Manchester’s now legendary Haçienda club. Greg was instrumental in breaking the new electronic, post-disco records coming out of New York, a sound he has dubbed ‘Electro-Funk’.

After a two decade hiatus from the booth, he returned to DJing and was swiftly playing across Europe and, subsequently, worldwide - with an unswerving devotion to his Revox B77 too. Greg was the first DJ to mix live on British TV, putting together the first UK radio mixes of their type for Piccadilly 261 in Manchester and teaching a young Norman Cook how to scratch. His Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1 in 2009 became something of an instant classic, receiving almost universal acclaim and was selected as one of 10 classics that spanned the show’s near 17 year history.

With his early musical roots firmly in soul and jazz, Kev Beadle has been one of London’s underground jazz and soul scene’s most respected selector/tastemakers for over 35 years., playing in clubs all over the UK, Europe, Japan and the USA. Think Monday nights at The Wag with Gilles Peterson, Walk On The Wild Side alongside Patrick Forge and the legendary Sunday Afternoon sessions at Dingwalls in Camden - plus a discography in double figures, he has put together some extremely well received compilation albums since the early 90’s for labels Blue Note, Cadet, Clean Up and BBE.

He’s joined by a selector of a similarly distinguished provenance - Perry Louis, an all-round talent with a diverse mix of experience in all things related to Jazz, Boogie and Funk Music: a Dancer, Choreographer, Teacher, Promoter, Marketing, Producer - and of course DJ. He created Messin’ Around, a club night at the Jazz Café and the 100 Club in London which ran for 13 years with five compilations on Verve & Freestyle Records. He created Shiftless Shuffle, a monthly Sunday afternoon Jazz Dance club now in its 21st year and currently works with organisations to help develop Boogie & Dancefloor Jazz cultures at festivals in France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Hungary and Finland.

Stephen Bunn is known to a generation as one of the founders of Acid Jazz signed outfit Mother Earth and to another as part of the contemporary UK/LDN Jazz outfit, Bunn DeBrett Quintet.
A record collector over 4 decades, a music producer, composer, remixer and composer, Bunny has a knowledge and love of music that is epitomised in his vast vinyl collection and his joy at playing music from that collection to each and all.
His pedigree as a percussionist and drummer is matched by his production and composition skills as epitomised in the massive success of the sell out run of vinyl pressings of the first Bunn DeBrett Quintet album released in 2021. This album, made with fellow former Mother Earth member Jon DeBrett, and featuring US spoken word artist Tenesha the Wordsmith and UK horn player Tamar Osborne owes much to London Transport's 94 Night Bus. For it was on this bus back to Acton one night in 2019 that Bunny decided that he and Jon should work together again having bumped into each other in The 100 Club.
The follow up album, Bunn DeBret Quintet 2, is releasing in July as a vinyl LP and has already garnered significant airplay and high pre-order sales on Bandcamp and in shops and tracks from this will feature in Bunny's 5 hour set along with the records he has collected as a muso, a DJ and a song-writer.
