its on here wif… Schmikey

its on here wif… SCHMIKEY…

1. your a funny character, you have played many a trick on me and others out there, how does this influence your music? if it does?

i always let the room influence my music, i have a broad taste in genres, so i swing it in whatever direction the room is going. I’ve always seen dj’ing as an unspoken conversation between the dj and the punters. i never know what I’m going to play until a few minutes before i drop it. i let the reaction of the people to the track currently playing determine the next track i play, so if i do something that’s a little tongue and cheeck, its purely because that was the direction the room was heading.


2. You follow a few different styles, which of them are your favorite and why?

it’s so hard to say which is my favourite style, because it varies from day to day. i think of music as being food for the soul, so my soul feels like something different to eat every day. a few months ago i cycled up the Hamilton Highway, the ride went for 5 hours. i almost made it to Cressy before i had to turn back because it was going to get dark. it was a tough ride and i was getting tired towards the end. i had every genre you can think of playing in my ipod, and the times when tech house came on, i found myself perking up quite a bit and peddling much harder. it was then that i realised that i do love a few different genres, but I’d have to say that tech house does something to me that other genres don’t do, and i mean the more intelligent side of tech house, not the obvious clubby side of the spectrum.


3. What is your favorite item? and why?

my favourite item is my laptop, i spend every possible moment on it. i never watch TV, because every time i watch TV i think i could have spent that time writing a new track, but wasted it watching TV. it goes to bed with me, and i sometimes take it out with me. there are so many times that I’m out and all i can think of is writing another track. i love the person that invented laptops. it has become my new girlfriend. i haven’t got a name for her yet, i think that might be taking it a bit too far, but don’t tell her that ;o)


4. If you could be a lollie, what one would you like to be or what would describe you.?

i recon id be a Fantail, because they’ve always got useless information on the wrapper. i seem to be filled with a lot of useless information. i use to watch a lot of documentaries.


5. The venues you have been playing lately, have been more relaxed and sexy, Is this what your true style is?
yeah I’ve been doing a lot of down tempo stuff between Edge, and Mr Hyde. i like the down tempo end of the pool, it seems to attract people that are a bit more switched on. i still love playing bangin tunes, but I’ve found that when i play in venues that have a matured demographic, i don’t seem to get the same request over and over. i do guest spots all the time in venues that are dominated with young crew, and i seem to find my sets a bit too obvious. young punters have favourite tracks, but they don’t realise that I’ve got a box of their new favourite tracks, they just haven’t heard them yet. they’ve got to give me a chance to play them.


6. Whats your fav color?

i use to think it was a bit silly to have a fave color, but over the years I’ve met a lot of people that have a favourite colors. mine is definitely blue, i don’t know why, it just seems to be a color that I’ve always been attracted to.


7. what is your most inspirational track, and why or what did it do to you.?

that’s such a hard question, but i think I’m going to have to go with: Out House by Nathan Fake. it moves me so much, it’s like climbing a mountain and finally getting to the top and seeing an amazing view, it’s just like that feeling you get inside. the track is also written very well. Out House has so many layers going on, but the track isn’t busy because Nathan Fake has composed it very cleverly, as something drops in, something else drops out etc… i hope one day i can create a track as good as it? 


8. what would you listen to if you were going to chill out?

i recon a mixture of Trip Hop, and Nu Jazz with some Left Field is a good cocktail of sounds to chill out to.


9. Who would be your favorite comedian, and how would you get them tied into your music style if you could?

I’ve always liked the work of Noel Feilding who plays Vince Noir on the Mighty Boosh. I’ve seen some of his stand up, and he’s not very conventional. he does very left field comedy that is very funny, but the average joe just doesn’t get it. the only correlation a can think of in regards to tieing his style into mine would be to do something that would seem strange, but did have a point. only people that were switched on would follow it, and the rest of the room would be scratching their heads.


10. what is the craziest thing that has happened to you.?

something weird that did happen was when i had a bookshelf delivered from ikea. the Hungarian delivery guy saw that i had Mishka stencilled on a few things in my house (Mishka was a party i use to put on) he asked what Mishka was? and it turned out that Mishka is a nickname for Michael in Hungarian. i had come up with my own nickname in another language, which blew me away because i didn’t think Mishka meant anything, i just made it up.




You can catch Schmikey at this Gig “End of the line” Friday, July 24th, Venue: “Mr Hyde”, 11 Malop St, Geelong, starts at 8pm, but the extra cool thing is that the party may start there, but it does not finish there. It goes on to the Infamous “Sorry Grandma” through buses there and back. so cool. so get amongst it. tickets for the buses are also available through Mr Hyde.

Here is a little something from the man himself to get you ready.
I really enjoyed the depth of sound this mix took. Good Work.

OK now back to it, The event that i’m looking forward too for a while, i would have to say, is another Crazy producer stirring the music scene up, and that would be… JESSE ROSE, but even better is that another artist of greatness comes to play along side him on the night. OLIVER $ (dollar). 

For all the people that buy a ticket to the event, you will receive JESSE ROSE’s newest album FREE… ticket are available through selected dj’s that are playing, if you now one of them, Hit them up. Otherwise through The Barking Dog, and Capricorn Music (Geelong).





Mixmag – “Say hello to the future of House music.”
xlr8r Magazine – “Your average club-goer may not know what to call the hybrid house being made by Jesse Rose, but there’s no mistaking its potent mix of mind-numbingly crisp techno/house beats, gritty sample riddled melodies and bassbin-blowing subsonics or its effectiveness on a dancefloor”
IDJ“After years earning his dance music stripes, Jesse Rose has finally hit the big time.”

Ever since the birth of music, there’s been someone out there who’s looked at what’s available, taken inspiration from what’s around them and innovated a new style of music. Stand up Jesse Rose. Regarded as one of dance music’s most forward-thinking producers in recent years, Jesse alongside Switch and Claude VonStroke, has been a pivotal figure in the revival of House music being cool once again. For years this fine genre has been misguided, the true underground heroes have continued to make quality, interesting music for sure, but the well known artists have been dated and lazy with their ideas. Switch and VonStroke have been the producers-du-jour of the last few years, 2009 is the time for Jesse Rose.

As one of the UK’s finest exports as a DJ (he lives in Berlin, of course) this is no overnight success PR plan. Jesse started DJing at the tender age of 14, raised on an upbringing of Motown Soul, Jazz and Eighties Funk in London’s Ladbroke Grove area. At the beginning of the nineties Jesse moved to Bristol and started DJing, putting on parties and making music with old friend Jamie Anderson. By the mid nineties Jesse had earned himself an enviable reputation for electrifying sets and was regularly playing at Fabric, which in turn got him bookings across Europe. These days Jesse’s calendar is booked up a year in advance playing only the best venues and parties, since September he’s toured Europe, Japan and Australia and is still the only DJ from the UK to have ever held a monthly residency at the world famous Panorama Bar in Berlin, his own Made To Play night, which continues to be one of the most popular.

2007 seemed without doubt to be Jesse’s year of recognition, featured in every international dance music publication, nominated alongside four others for ‘Best British DJ’ at the DJ Mag best of British Awards, number four in IDJ players of the year & fourteen in Mixmag’s best DJ’s in the world 2007. Jesse finished a triumphant year playing in Sydney to 15,000 people on the main stage at Field Day.

Like his DJ status, as a producer, Jesse is a guarantee. World-renowned for his ‘Fidget House’ sound which he created with long-time music partners Dave ‘Switch’ Taylor and Trevor Loveys, he’s now the guy you turn to when you want a dancefloor remix, lending his services to the likes of Hot Chip, Simian Mobile Disco, Underworld and literally tonnes more. To date Jesse has recorded for the likes of Classic, Get Physical, JBO, Simple and his own Made To Play and Front Room imprints and of course Dubsided, which is the home for ‘What Do You Do If You Don’t?’


Where Jesse was schooled by Switch (who co-produced many of the tracks featured on the album), he himself has helped bring through the UK’s current dancefloor darlings, anyone heard of Herve? Or Sinden? Indeed it was Jesse that played a key role in the development of their sound, keeping it in the Dubsided family, releasing records together and twisting the template of house. 

With an impressive back catalogue of singles and DJ mixes, released on the finest labels and working with some of the most exciting names in the industry, Jesse is now to release his first solo album, an album which is in it’s third complete version, 3 years in the making and his biggest project to date.

The album is a work of brilliance and like Claude VonStroke’s ’07 release ‘Beware Of the Bird’, Jesse shows how cutting edge House can be accessible, playful and fun whilst proving exactly how blurred the lines have become with Pop music, with guest appearances from Hot Chip, David E Sugar and Afra & The Incredible Beatbox Band. The lead single and first track ‘Forget My Name’ has been all over Radio 1, with Joe and Alexis from Hot Chip on vocals spelling out R-O-S-E, making sure you do anything but forget his name. Jesse explains, “After a gig at a rock festival Joe went back to London and wrote me this track. At first I thought the lyrics were a bit too cheeky but as I’m known for that kind of behaviour I thought ‘fuck it, lets do it’.” It was the right decision as it’s currently blowing up the airwaves and clubland, which you could easily predict for a number of the tracks featured across the LP.

Proven bangers ‘Asided’ and ‘You’re All Over My Head’ are featured alongside the Moondog inspired ‘Night At The Dogs’ and future club hits ‘Pop Yer Porn’, ‘Wine Gum’ and ‘Touch My Horn’ with the latter already generating a huge response on the dancefloor and radio as the B-side to the single. Where Jesse has certainly not forgotten his club roots, he’s also shown his skills as a producer of songs with ‘Miss Taker’ featuring rising star David E Sugar and the second collaboration on the album with Hot Chip ‘Day Is Done’. “When I first spoke to Hot Chip about doing a collaboration they sent over two demos, one was up-tempo & catchy and the other was this melancholic, deep and beautiful song. I wanted to go with this one because it gives the album a depth that the more up-tempo tracks might miss.”

It’s true, it does and it also takes the album to new heights. No other dance producer at 30 has more experience than Jesse and no dance producer full stop has an album like this, not even his mentor Switch, VonStroke or Herve. Jesse has operated in the underground for years, proving his worth and importance. With the release of his album in 2009 he will show how he’s now gone beyond the underground and can stand tall as one of the most exciting names in music today.

So if you buy a ticket to one of his album launch party’s, you will receive these tracks.

3.     Pop Yer Porn

They intend on creating a room for people to be creative weather musically or visually in a geelong club. More on this in a coming issue of Forte MAG (may 21st). “Its Weird in Here” is from the makers of Sins On Sunday. So things are changing around and so you should make sure to add them on Facebook, to keep track of their gigs.

With mega partys coming up with Jesse Rose, KA-BOOM, JUNE 7TH, BOYS NOIZE RECORDS SHOW we are here and we are now!

The Jesse Rose gig will be the Offical launch of Its Weird in Here group.!!! So with that note, i have special mix from MALAKAI for you to all listen to, and get busy.

Evil as it comes – its not that bad

21 04 2009



I have occasionally found some good music from the likes of EVIL NINE. I was just listening to there remix of Eagles of Death Metal an alternative/hard rock band formed in Palm Desert, California. the track was “Wannabe in L.A. (Evil Nine’s MCLA remix). Check it out on Last FM. It rolled along so good, i was inspired to wana play some breaks again soon. well i sort of do, but not like this mix that have found out there which is worth a good listen. If you like the breaks fused with rock and electronic influences, then you will dig this, so yeah, get amongst it. It was done for the DISCOBELLE blog.

Evil Nine 45 min mini mix for discobelle Download

mr oizo – porriturre ( soulwax edit ) 
Evil nine – the night
the kills – cheap and cheerful ( sebastian remix ) 
zzt – the worm ( erol extended remix )
Evil nine – icicles ( evil nine’s graveyard smash remix )
zombie nation – the fact
shadow dancer – landlines
alex metric – what now
birdy nam nam – worried ( djedjotronic remix )
evil nine – the power
adam freeland – under control ( evil nine’s graveyard smash remix )
modeselektor – suckerpin ( feadz remix )

They aren’t evil and there are only two of them, but other than not living up to their randomly chosen yet aesthetically pleasing name Tom Beaufoy and Pat Pardy in no way disappoint. That’s if you are into a distinctly individual sound that defies categorization and has delivered both cerebral stimulation and dancefloor satisfaction with every release so far.

Loving the artwork for their Albums, here is a taste.
