#78 - Live from Dirtybird @ Sankeys Ibiza - July 2013
August 02, 2013 05:38 AM PDT
Recorded live from Claude Von Stroke's San Francisco record label's party named Dirtybird on Thursday 25th July 2013 in the rapidly becoming legendary club Sankeys located on the White Isle - Ibiza. When i was at uni Sankeys was just taking over from the fading Hacienda as Manchesters main club. In recent years Warehouse Project has assumed that mantle while Sankeys closed and put all its resources and efforts into its Ibizan venture.
Nestled in the heart of Playa Den Bossa close to Space and Ushuaia, Sankeys has been going from strength to strength since it opened it's door these last 3 yrs. Sankey's has already built a reputation for packed out crowds and an electric atmosphere with reviews saying that the atmosphere inside feels like a closing party carnival every night. It sure felt like it was a closing party crowd when i played there last week!
My set was pitched as a perfect foil to the dirtybird residents Justin Martin, Catz n Dogz, Claude Von Stroke, etc. in the main room. Dirtybird is a tech funk record label and their residents have generally been playing very deep and often minimal loud clubby sounds this summer in the massive main room. To balance the club out, I wanted to play something lighter and different so my set is mainly deep house (but funkier not minimal) and garage with a sprinkling of tech house, jackin house and nu disco and to spice it up a little, with some breakbeats and D&B to end.
Turn up the volume, let the mix flow, get dancing or just pretend you are in Sankeys listening live and most of all enjoy!

July 17, 2013 09:59 AM PDT
Lost in Ibiza is the only underground boat party in Ibiza. After a calamitous first season, Sankeys Ibiza was the surprise success story of 2012, with Steve Lawler and Solomun helping turn it into the most intelligent underground den on the White Isle.
This year the Lost in Ibiza crew have teamed up with the legendary Claude VonStroke and his San Francisco Tech Funk "record label called "Dirtybird". The promotion is also called Dirtybird and it is held in Sankeys on Thursdays. Lost in Ibiza will host the Boutique room for their afterparty apres the boat and I have the privilege to be spinning some tunes for them in Sankeys at Dirtybird. Headlining is Justin Martin and Catz n Dogz.
I wanted to do a pre Ibiza mix with a little sampler of some tunes that i think will be big in Ibiza this summer. Its nearly a 4 hour mix and is mainly deep house with a sprinkle of nu disco, tech house and the like. I hope it gets you in the mood for your summer holidays wherever that maybe and for me it has 100% got me in the mood for the White Isle....
Turn it up, let it build and enjoy!
p.s. My next podcast will be a recording of my set live from Sankeys!#76 - Sunshine Sounds - Rubber Stamped Soulful House - June 2013
July 11, 2013 11:40 AM PDT
Fancy some sunshine sounds? this mix is pure soulful house goodness and is ideal for a summers day in the park, sitting by the pool or having a sundown cocktail. Strangely enough this is my first soulful house mix and this vibe takes me back to early 2000s and the era that was Rowsley Lodge, House FM, Unknown FM, Camden Palace, Bobby and Steve Soul Heaven, movers and shakers in bond street, the buffalo bar in highbury corner and everything else soulful house related. Mr Mole, Mundis, Han, Jenwah, Stace, Dee, Rob, Sam, Tracy Luv, Matt Nash, Piglet, Olner and the man himself Mikey Matt you all knows it!
The music on this podcast is what i call proper house music and while it reminds me of that era because every club or bar you went to was playing soulful tunes, these tunes i have used are fresh. The inspiration and many of the tunes on this mix comes from my man Choci. One of the pioneers of electronic music in London in the late 80s and early 90s for years Choci sold vinyls from his west end Choci's Chewns record shop to all the biggest DJs in the land Oakenfold, Tong, Rampling, Norman Jay, Bukem, Goldie and the like. He also DJ'd all over London and the world and had various residencies including Escape from Samara at the Fridge in Brixton. If you look on any flyer from the day Choci was there headlining and those guys previously mentioned were often supporting him. Choci is a musical legend inspired by the music not commercials, check out some of Choci's art and you can catch the man himself dj'ing on tuesdays live on Kane FM for Team Robbo.
It took me a few tunes to settle into this mix as some of the early stuff is recorded live so has varying BPMs, there are 4 or 5 exclusive Choci edits/remixes on this mix. I will bang a track list up when i have time. Enjoy the tunes, just let the mix roll it builds and builds, sit back enjoy the sunshine, hopefully your sundowner and turn it up!

July 06, 2013 11:17 AM PDT
The full recording of my 8hr set from the British Polo in Dubai. All in one MP3 file for your listening pleasure.....
Check the size of the sound system (see attached photo) it was 12K of sound enough to rock a small festival stage. It was pumping!#74 - Rubber Stamped Vibes Live From the British Polo Dubai - Part II - March 2013
July 06, 2013 09:05 AM PDT
Part II of my mix from the British Polo on a huge outdoor 12k soundsystem.
The next 3 hrs of the mix, leaves behind the nu disco and deeper house and moves into a more garagy vibe. Then in tune with the crowd, I finish with a selection of mainroom house bangers ranging from proper DJ Dan style uptempo classic house music to some more commercial indie dance remixes including tunes like Say My Name - Florence and the Machine, Love Sensation - Loleatta Holloway, Bur Woo Hoo and Sunglasses at Night - Lissat and Voltaxx.
The aim was to raise the roof off, well there was no roof, just stars but i smashed it anyway! Big Shout out to Barney who matched me on the Jim Beams all the way......#73 - Rubber Stamped Vibes Live From the British Polo Dubai - Part I - March 2013

Part one takes you on a FIVE hour journey from 115 to 125bpm through deep house, indie dance and nu disco. The set was recorded live at the British Polo in Arabian Ranches Dubai. For the first hour or so the tunes supplied the backdrop for an after event drink but soon there was head nodding and people were slowly moving their feet, busting some slower shapes. After a couple of hours the whole place started grooving and thats when it went off. Musically the mix has a great flow and it seemed to work well for a more mixed crowd can typically be more commercial. I think this is why I only had one conversation all nightalong the lines of "can I make a suggestion? can you please play some Rihanna". The mix might be my best yet, from 2.5hrs in once they were dancing it felt like tune after tune after tune and the response from the crowd was electric.
It will take a while to listen to but that's ok, turn it on, turn it UP, take your time and enjoy! a 5hr set is great for a car journey, great for a houseparty, great for background tunes at work, great for your garden at a bbq, nice for a long run. Just turn it UP!
Get a few thousand people in a sunny field drinking champagne and pimms all afternoon and it is going to be carnage. Add in Rubber his tunes, a 12k sound system at an outdoor afterparty in the Polo club courtyard and it's clearly going to go off! and this one did..... Massive shout to Barney Brotherhood for carrying my record bag and pouring the Jim Beams all night, we smashed that bottle! Maximum respect to Paul Dias and the sound engineers from Soundsol. Total calmness when some happy reveller spilt a full drink over one of my decks that then stuck playing backwards. Quick and efficient swap out, CDJ opened in minimal light, circuit boards dried, parts replaced and deck back slotted in with minimum fuss. Love working with professionals!
Part 2 of this mix to follow next month#72 - Rubber Stamped Vibes - Live @ Sunstroke Pool Party Dubai - March 2013
April 04, 2013 11:39 AM PDT
I kicked off the Sunstroke Pool Party live on the terrace of the Radisson Blu Hotel Media City for my mate Andrei and his Sunstroke Collective. My set was 1hr 45 of deeper warmup vibes to get the party started. The event was headlined by CN Williams who Norman Jay reckons is the best resident DJ in the UK. CN was broadcasting the event live on his Reelhouse Records radio feed. I had a brilliant day out. Big ups to Chants, Stan, Irene, Andrew, Dan,Omar, etc. who all came down to support me plus special guests Jan and Kate from Singapore. CN destroyed the dancefloor technically amazing and some upfront house music with old skool acapellas. Roll on the next one!#71 - Gone Too Long - Rubber Stamped House - Jan 2013
February 08, 2013 10:43 AM PST
Rubber is back to his roots with a 3hr house set. It's taken a while but i can safely say it will be worth it.... I've had tunes in my beatport crate for 8+ months for this set! A new job and running 4 football teams does not help...... I finally narrowed down 32 tunes for my new mix. It is deep and full of proper house music 114-126bpm with some very funky basslines and old skool piano riffs, etc. Huge shout out to the Goa crew - Cheese, Sween, Donna, George, Alistair, Chico, Pete and Thom, your musical aura's have inspired me loads! Really hope to be out dj'inng on the Lost In Ibiza boat this summertime. Huge reunion!

Aplogies people as it's been nearly 6 weeks since my last mix! It has been pre-season with my football club Dubai FC and as we are running 4 teams this season arrangements have been taking up lots of my time.
