A decade and a half is a long time for anyone to stay in one job, especially radio show hosts. After almost reaching that length of service, one of Rinse FM’s top boys has aired his final show on the revered station, and is now setting his sights on a brand new experimental broadcasting platform of his own devising. Introducing Plastician’s Unreality Journeys.
Vinylised is a new vinyl production company helping small labels press records.
It provides imprints with a complete end-to end service and the process is simple for getting your music pressed.
Here's how it works: Labels add their catalogue to the Vinylised website for free with a minimum target of orders. Once the minimum is reached, Vinylised will look after the manufacturing, from mastering to pressing.
They also pack up the release for you and ship the orders direct to the consumer, cutting out expensive distributors and cash-grabbing middle men.
Sexy Kitchen Party team up with DJ Mag Live next week (Wednesday 1st February) for a night of fun and frolicks, including a special '80s set from dubstep don, Plastician!
Also joining the fray at London's Work Bar will be Jack Swift playing a garage set, honchos Sexy Kitchen Party and the DJ Mag Allstars will be on hand with a George Michael tribute set.
In the new year, an event series is returning to Oslo Hackney, which sees four top tastemakers and selectors curate one Saturday a month for three months (geddit?)
They’ve got Plastician, Martelo, Loefah and Bullion on the case to bring in some key players from their individual musical landscapes — each hugely respected in their own field and bound to welcome along some top acts.
They also have an artist in residence: Sam Coldy, who’ll be in charge of all things creative, a graphic artist who’s previously worked with Boiler Room and Nike to supply visuals.
Plastician, one of dubstep's pioneers, has revealed a forthcoming album of remastered material from the early ‘00s.
Featuring over 20 tracks, the album will consist of mainly old, vinyl-only pieces that were released under his former alias, Plasticman. Plastician, aka Chris Reed, had to change his name in 2006 to avoid confusion with Richie Hawtin's Plastikman alias.
