Decadance at Crasken Christmas Party Saturday 17th December 2011
Artists Biogs in brief…
Camborne’s Ben Mitchell and Stuart Lamb are 2Dark2Cornish, purveyors of the Darkest DnB around. DJs and producers, the duo havereleases upcoming on Infectech Recordings, and describe their sound as “two dieselbar fuelled pikey’s on a comedown being forcibly removed from life itself.”
Aceeater (Skank & Stomp)
DJ, promoter and designer for Stank and Stomp, a collective of DJs, producers, Artists and general nutcases from Falmouth, Luc Aceeater has become a stalwart of the local scene. Mixing a fine blend of Ska, Swing, Gypsy, Punk and all kinds of Electro, Aceeater has played with some of the best live acts, from 3 Daft Monkeys to Balkan Hotsteppers, at venues across the region.
Producer Paul Croley, began writing music under the CAKEBOY moniker after being inspired by Brighton’s emerging Big Beat scene. Combining electronic dance with rock/metal & injecting it all with a healthy dose of humour, his productions are brimming with ideas and fearlessly straddle genres. He was persuaded by a local promoter to take it to the stage and his exciting live set and kooky stage antics soon led to bigger & better events. In 2004 he took the title of best dance act in Glastonbury Festival’s first ever ‘Unsigned Contest’, performed in the main Dance Arena & has been back every Year since! After several single releases & his debut album in 2005 he is now signed to MUTATE RECORDS.
DJ, promoter and radio presenter, Kevin Godden is a familiar sight on the local scene, and has quickly gained a reputation for generation-spanning, genre-busting sets. Appearing regularly on Falmouth’s SourceFM and on Breakspoll-nominated BrapFM, Kevin has played at many of Cornwall’s top venues and festivals, as well as making appearances as far afield as Bristol and Birmingham. Expect dance classics new and old with the odd surprise thrown in.
Hannibal Selecter & The Hip-hop Collective
Hedluv & Passman
The dynamic rap duo from Redruth, and originators of ‘Casio Rap’, Hedluv and Passman have been bringing their unique brand of beats to the masses since 2007. Their latest collection of witty tales of everyday life in Cornwall, “We came here not for gold” was launched this year. Their spectacularly energetic live show has seen them perform at festivals throughout the South West, winning an army of fans along the way.
Indica (Top Hat Sound System)
Nigel Pengelly – he plays records. Nigel doesn’t mix and mash, or write ‘coming at ya, boom’ in his Facebook status – he just plays good tunes. From northern soul to funk and classic house anthems, Nigel has played at Love Riot, Back to Love, The Zero Lounge, Jubilee Sessions, Poldark Parties, The Ritz and many other clubs, nights and venues.
So despite being unwittingly labelled the ‘oldest swinger in town’ – even though he never gets asked to pay at those kind of parties – Nigel is a crowd pleaser who never fails to deliver.
Petite Debauche are a four-piece psyche-folk-rock band from Cornwall, UK. Their mix of female & male vocals, spanish, electric, 12-string and baritone guitar, drums and piano take the audience on a journey from acousticy pop songs to deep dark dirty rock.
Formed in 2008 as an acoustic duet, Petite Debauche have been prominent in playing around west cornwall, telling tales of love, life and debauchery. The addition of Victor Tomkinson in 2009 added a more diverse element to their sound, with the band becoming more electric-based and extracting increasing amounts of rock ‘n’ roll from the songs. Symon Owers joined as drummer in late 2010, and really helped push the band into “saturday night territory”. Following Symons departure in June this year, Alan Brookland has stepped in on percussion and the band is pushing towards becoming a major act.
Prozium (Jericho Sound System)
AKA Barnaby Bridges, Prozium is a DJ and producer of various genres, particularly DnB, Breakbeat and Electro. He has also been known to turn his hand to playing bass and vocals on his own productions. Prozium is a founder member of the Jericho Soundsystem, who have built a reputation for running highly successful music events in and around the county.
