NightDubbing welcomes CHICKEN LIPS DJ, Steve "Fella" Kotey to the Snafu turntables for a night of hard hitting DUB-ELECTRO-DISCO a bit of retro sounding ACID HOUSE-PUNK FUNK and ELECTRO charged POP.

Friday 13th April @ Snafu 10-3am 5 enrty.

Steve hooked up with the CHICKEN LIPS duo of Andy Meecham and Dean Meredith in 2002, who previously had chart success as Bizzare Inc. in the early 90s. The sound of Chicken Lips is known as "disco dub" and it derives from a mix of disco, boogie, 80s synthesizer music, and tricks from the dub chamber. A groove-inflected, instrumental sound that feels like its been handmade. There is a rock nroll influence as well, with big drums, huge echo sounds, banging bass guitars and small melody fragments.

Their huge body of work can be scoped out at: Chicken Lips and their compilation mix CD's for DJ Kicks on K7! checking your plug in... and Clicks, Acid 'n' Disco on Trust the DJ are a good introduction.

And if that was not enough, Steve runs Bear Entertainments which has an A&R repertoire that reads like the who's who of wonky disco. Bear Entertainment

More recently Steve has been producing under his own name, remixing the likes of Lindstrom and has just got his band project off the ground with a killer single "Sooner or later" that features living legend Chas Janel (Ian Dury&theBlockheads, "Glad to know you, Ai No Corrida" fame).

He still finds the time to DJ across the globe as the international LIPS ambassador.

Some of his mixes can be dowloaded or streamed here:
