HUNTLEYS + PALMERS (Glasgow)
Party outfit and label Huntleys + Palmers recently celebrated its 10th anniversary, displaying a keen curatorial ear via parties between Glasgow and London with guests including everyone from Axel Boman to Veronica Vasicka, Four Tet to Silver Apples and hundreds of others in between — many of whom playing in the UK for the first time including Oni Ayhun, Helena Hauff, Lena Willikens, Rebolledo and rRoxymore. They were also behind the programming of a weekly residency at London's legendary Plastic People.
Continuing this eye for emerging talent, Huntleys + Palmers have released and assisted in launching the careers of talented individuals from Argentina to the Ukraine, the Gorbals to Tel Aviv — including the likes of Auntie Flo, SOPHIE, Mehmet Aslan, Hi & Saberhägen, Red Axes, Golden Teacher and many, many more. Calling upon the likes of Dixon, DJ Sotofett, Lena Willikens, Kornél Kovács, Mark E, Lipelis and Africaine 808 for remixes. Releases here — https://huntleyspalmers.bandcamp.com
Huntleys + Palmers' appetite for discovering and sharing new music both informs and fuels their DJ'ing; playing everything from international party belters as a founding member of Highlife (alongside Auntie Flo), to appreciating the art form of the warm up DJ; better yet, combining both and playing an extended set — something they regularly practice, playing 8+ hours at the legendary Salon des Amateurs in Düsseldorf. They've also appeared at many of Europe's leading venues including including Glastonbury, Barbican, Fabric, Corsica Studios, Razzmatazz, Le Sucre, The Art School, Sub Club, Berghain Kantine, Tradgarden, Ohm and Dimensions festival.
They've contributed a range of mixes, podcasts and radio shows for esteemed outlets such as Boiler Room, Ninja Tune's Solid Steel, Beats In Space, Truants and Crack Magazine — huntleyspalmers.com/mixes
ZILLAS ON ACID (Making Time, Philly)
ZILLAS ON ACID is DJ duo Thomas Roland and James Weissinger. For the past decade, they’ve raddened Philadelphia dance floors with their monthly Broadzilla parties and as residents of Making Time, the Philly nightlife institution humbly described by designer David Rudnick as “the best place on the east coast of America to hear incredible music and completely lose your shit." Warped graphic design, head-scratching video art, a possibly-conceptual intern--the Zillas bring their peculiar aesthetic sensibility to everything they do. Mixing techno, post-punk, dub, and disco, they now turn their attention to original production, thrashing out their own jacked up version of late-night drum music to make people jump up and down via their label 100 Years of Solid Dudes.
