Poison - 21st December @ Cargo

A big part of my DJing and producing life so far has been a series of nights I've played at in London, all promoted by a bloke called Niyi - the first one was Heart at Punk - guests included Little Boots and Calvin Harris, and although the night eventually petered out, it evolved into Toys 'R' Us, guests included Dexplicit, Mystery Jets, A1 Bassline. Niyi had to put a forced hiatus on TRU late last year to work on his debut album (which is sounding great by the way), but he's back with a bigger and better night - Poison. The first one is this Monday (21st December) at Cargo, facebook link here. The first night's guest is Dub Police head Trolley Snatcha, and although the residents from past nights haven't stuck around largely (Dick Turpin went on to promote Rise and Jared Phillippo went on to promote Rhyme & Slang, which is coincidentally the Lee's current London club residency.) Anyway enough history, on with the music. Got a few mixes from the other heads playing on Monday.

First up, mix from Niyi - one of the most inspirational DJs around imo - his mixing cannot touch ANYONE in terms of the sheer shock value, and the immense skill the guy's got behind the cd decks. I played this mix to Lee last week and he was absolutely gobsmacked - has had it on repeat ever since I believe.

Next up two mix from one of the lesser known heads playing the night, although still both bringing the heat on the decks. Mixing is tight and tunes are big - believe.
