BREAKS’DRUM & BASS THE STANTON WARRIORS
Bio-Rhythm at the Honeycomb, Edinburgh, Fri 9 Apr
Good Friday may be one of the weaker calls to party in Clubland, but no excuse is necessary this Easter as the mighty Manga team up with high- profilers Bio-Rhythm in a good, old fashioned guest-fest.
Things kick off at the Liquid Rooms with a live drum & bass romp from Hospital Records’ pioneering breakbeat scientists, London Elektricity, plus Manga’s irrepressible residents G-Mac and DJ Kid. Then the Hospital 0.13 will be lugging their wares over to the Honeycomb to provide backroom support for breakbeat freestylers, the Stanton Warriors.
No strangers to a party, the Stanton Warriors are just back from a tour of Australia and the Far East, swapping backrooms for big crowds and bigger festivals reminiscent of the UK’s free rave past, a time Mark Yardley and Dominic B remember fondly. ‘There were better parties in the West Country,’ argues Dominic. ‘There was a freestyle attitude, where dance music wasn’t regimented. DJs and bands were really mixing it all up.’
This is a stance upheld by the Warriors today, and expressed with aplomb on their award winning 2001 mix, The Stanton Sessions. ‘We apply a real hip-hop mentality to more of a house breakbeat,’ offers Dominic. ‘But really we just play fresh interesting dance music that’s been tried and tested the world over.’ (Mark Edmundson)
