DHC - KILL 'EM ALL RESIDENCY

FEAT. FILTHY DUKES, STOPMAKINGME, DHC DJS

THURSDAY 22ND APRIL // SNAFU

Filthy Dukes are bringing their famous "Kill 'Em All" night to Snafu in April. It will run on a bi-monthly basis on a Thursday night at Dirty Hearts Club, with the boys bringing in special guests each time.

The first event is 22nd April with Kill 'Em All DJs and STOPMAKINGME.

Stopmakingme was in Bournemouth doing his thing as a very young dj supporting the likes of MSTRKRFT & Uffie - then he came up to London with talk of his love for clubs like Trash & Optimo and people thought he was just a scenester who could play a hot tune. Then when you talked to him he started referencing Paradise Garage and The Music Box, and when you heard him dj, he somehow managed to play a massive house record next to a Talking Heads record, next to a techno tune, next to a pop record and it all sounded amazing. This vast musical knowledge and ability to create sets that defy genre and can work a crowd into sweaty frenzy gained him a residency at London institution Fabric.

Stopmakingme is now a regular at parties such as Bugged Out, East Village, The Lock Tavern and Durrr. He is also a prominent member of the Adventures In The Beetroot Field camp fitting perfectly into their mantra of championing new and interesting music.

His kinetic mix of unwashed heavy electro, mutant new wave, huge disco, pulsing techno, updated post-punk and perfect pop has seen him constantly win over new fans, not least Simian Mobile Disco who hand-picked him to join them on their Autumn tour. In the last year alone he has played with The Chemical Brothers, Tiga, Erol Alkan, Boy Noize, Aeroplane, Popof, Andrew Weatherall, Tim Sweeney, Filthy Dukes, Simian Mobile Disco...

Not content with just djing he co-promotes Kill Em All, one of the country's most innovative and forward thinking club nights. You can also catch him behind the counter at London independent record shop Pure Groove - recommending records to customers and curating their impressive record label.

Amidst all this, Stopmakingme has recently produced remixes for Little Boots, Boy 8-Bit, Patrick Wolf, Filthy Dukes, Sisters Of Transistors, Lemonade and We Have Band with many more on the way. He is currently in the studio working on his debut EP.

"More corrosive than a DFA remix, more minimal than an Optimo re-edit, Avery's jams are ones to get utterly lost in" - Time Out, Dec 08

VOLCANO VOLCANO, PLEASE GO AWAY.

After a problematic weekend with the volcano, we not only had to cancel 1 but 3 guests.

We can however, with a smile on our faces CONFIRM that KILL EM ALL featuring Filthy Dukes, Stopmakingme and DHC DJs will still go ahead this Thursday, 22nd April as all the party will be travelling by train.

No problems there then!

If you still need a ticket go to Club Snafu | Aberdeen Nightclub Box Office.

Lets get those fingers crossed that the nice wee cloud of ash and dust will be gone soon!

The Filthy Dukes and Stopmakingme are on route to Snafu now! Admission is 5 on the door and discount entry passes are available from The Athenaeum. Don't miss out on this! Doors are at 10pm!

London clubbing institution Kill Em All, a night which was created by the Filthy Dukes (now co-hosted with Stopmakingme and Riton) and started out in Londons legendary Embassy Bar, before moving on to The Lock Tavern in Camden, The Barfly and finally now calling home the crme de la crme of the UK clubbing scene FABRIC. Now, Kill Em All takes its infamous clubnight to pastures further a field joining Snafu on a bi-monthly basis in a collaboration between KEA and Dirty Hearts Club.

This isnt your average night out, nor is it an accolade not worth shouting about, come tonight, Thursdays will never be the same again.

The inaugural night sees the Filthy Dukes joined by new resident DJ, producer and live performer in his own right Stopmakingme and promises to deliver some of the most cutting edge and innovative guests from the underground indie and electronic scene on every visit.

The duo began in 2003 with the vision of booking exciting new bands and DJs, with equal emphasis on both and soon gained a reputation for breaking new acts such as Bloc Party, We Are Scientists, Late Of The Pier, Friendly Fires, MSTRKRFT & Simian Mobile Disco, who all played very early gigs for the night. Since the early days the night has hosted the likes of Justice, Erol Alkan, Chemical Brothers, Friendly Fires, Boys Noize, Cut Copy, Crystal Castles, Popof, Zombie Nation, Digitalism, the list goes on... And it is this cutting edge, forward thinking booking policy which Kill Em All will bring to the Dirty Hearts Club.
