Terror Danjah at Butterz & Hardrive #3

July 7th 2012 witnessed history at Butterz & Hardrive #3! After the disappointment of Bloc Weekend, a lot party/festival goers who came to this event where not let down. This event was the best yet. Blinding sets from everyone, including Newham Generals featuring ChronikChampion with Serious one had the girls moving, Preditah with Kozzie and Merky Ace had the Grime purist jumping up, D.O.K Dj Spooky was a soundman fest.

Skepta & Jme at Butterz & Hardrive

All thoses who didn’t have the stamina who left after 3am sorely missed out. Boy Better Know very own CEO Jme with his self proclaim King Of Grime brother Skepta & Shorty blessed mine and Elijah & Skilliam‘s sets which where the last two sets. All I can say is stay till 6 AM LOOOOOOL!!!

All I can say it was historic and epic, catching myself Riko Dan, Skepta, Jme & Shorty on my set, very rare occasion!!!

TD behind the decks

I must say it was packed till 6 in the morning. So much passing trade, I saw different sets of people through the night.

Butterz & Hardrive Ladies

Well you know, theres always the piffest ladies at our dances loooool

!000 people in Butterz & Hardrive

Main arena was packed all night, it was like an indoor carnival, pure vibes, people from all around the world travelled to party!

Ravers

Lighter!!!

We light up the club, in a good way of course lol

Ahead of the Bloc Weekend Festival, I went to the free grand opening of London’s new super music venue London Pleasure Gardens.

As I entered the venue, it was hard to believe I was in my home town borough of Newham in East London, the site feels like I was at Glastonbury but at the river side. LPG boasts a massive 20 acres and roughly a capacity of 27,000 people. I do recommend that you don’t wear your best creps (trainers lol) and carry a bandana or scarf because its very dusty, especially if the wind blows the dust in your face.

Dome

In the pic above, you can see the Dome in the distance.

Inside the Dome

In side the Dome the size of the arena feels like it has a capacity of roughly of 1000 people. the size is like the main room in most night clubs.

Main stage

The Main stage is like a concert arena. I ain’t even gonna try to guess how much people can squeeze up in there lol, all I can say is its HUGGGGEEEE lol.

Funfair

fun fair

LPG has loads of bars and food stalls situated through the site. I tried authentic Caribbean Jerk Chicken with Rice & Peas with salad, I was really impressed, spot on. It was reasonably price at £6.50. Other attractions was the fun fair rides, clothes stalls etc. I didn’t get a close up on the floating cocktail bar, I think most of the site was closed due to still building for the Bloc Weekend.

Behind the main arena

There was another tent arena behind the main arena, the bass from that tent was booming throughout the site lol.

Floating Cocktail bar in the distance

In the pic above is the floating cocktail bar for in distance, nice scenery.

Better view of the cocktail bar

Another pic of the floating cocktail bar above, I think roughly half the site was out of bound due to building work.

Below is the pictures inside of the MS Stubnitz boat where I am playing at for Hyperdub this Saturday (July 7th 2012). My set times is 02:30 – 03:30.

(Update: Edited 17:05 July 7th 2012)

AS YOU ARE WELL AWARE, BLOC FEST 2012 HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO OVER CROWDING.

I was there last night (Friday 6th 2012) just after 23:20. I was roughly  there for 20 minutes. I was at the artist accredition gate and it was closed. I rang one of organisers at Bloc to find out what was happened and was informed “due to over crowding, the gate is closed for health and safety reasons, and we should be opening it shortly”. by this time I saw it was quarter to midnight and sussed it might be all long to see Snoop Dogg, so I decide to cut loose (leave the site).

I was really gutted because I really wanted to deejay and I also heard Snoop was gonna bring out 50 Cent. I’m screwing KMT!!!

I really hope Bloc still carries on, because their events are always spot and hope to play for them in the future.

For info about the Bloc incident, heres some useful links:

Before I actually started to releasing vinyl singles on Hardrive, I did two compilation CDs entitled Hardrive Vol 1 in 2007 and Hardrive vol 2 in 2009 (double cd).

Hardrive vol 2

Hardrive Vol 1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After deciding calling Aftershock a day in August 2008 (for those who don’t know Aftershock, its was a record label I ran with Flash which featured artists such as Bruza, Tinie Tempah, Mz Bratt, Shola Ama, Sadie Ama, Kano, D Double, D.O.K. Wiley, Big-E-D, Loudmouth Melvin, Elrae, Badness, D.E.Velopment aka Devilman, Scratcha DVA, Gemma Fox, etc). I vowed never to start another label again.

Aftershock Records

I must admit, I felt lost after leaving the Aftershock chapter behind me. I had met Elijah previous through Loudmouth Melvin in 2007. We shared the same vision and passion for Grime. At that time Grime was unheard of in the clubs, unless you did Electro infused dance music. From the highlights of selling a good couple of thousands of vinyl with one release in a space of a few weeks on Aftershock in 2003 to struggling to sell a few hundreds in 2006, was a real change in the way music was going. That was one of the main sources of income.

Joker

Joker

I have to say thanks to Joker, it was our conversation that help re kick start my Deejaying career. I was originally a Deejay to start of with. I started playing Old Dancehall which was termed Ragga in 1992. By the end of 1994 I switched from Ragga to Jungle/Drum n Bass. I got on local pirate radio station called Future Fm with fellow school friend D Double E in 1997. I joined Rinse Fm at the end of 1998. I stayed on Rinse Fm till 2001. I wasn’t get much bookings but being was get well know, playing at well establish events One Nation, Telepathy, and Slammin’ Vinyl as an arena two deejay. I decided to stop Deejaying and turn my hand to production.
The turn of 2010 I was four bookings deep into my resurrection of my deejay career, I was in Dublin, Rep Of Ireland, at event called Kaboogie at a club called Twisted Pepper. A raver came up to me in the smokers area and said “I can’t wait for your Bipolar EP to be released on Butterz(first release on Butterz BR 001). I couldn’t believe people still brought vinyl and the spread of the music, and thats what started the ball rolling lol.

Butterz – BR001 – Bipolar EP

In mid 2010 I decided to do the first single release HDR001 Golden Axe EP by D.O.K which includes club smasher Missing Step.

HDR001 – Golden Axe – D.O.K

My second release on the label was with Joker entitled Gully Goon Estate and the flip was with Nottingham’s and DTC boss Illmana called Screama

HDR002 – Gully Goon Estate – Joker, Terror Danjah & Illmana

Third release was from Grime legend P Jam. He hailed from the same label as Skepta in 2003 called Dice Recordings. Just like me, I felt P Jam was not getting the recognition he deserved. Anger Management is one of the biggest tunes in Grime history. It originally came out in 2003/4. Only available with the D Double E vocal. So I decided to release after play in our third Butterz & Hardrive night at East Village, Shoreditch. It was definitely the highlight of the night with 3 massive reloads.

HDR003 - Anger Management - P Jam

HDR003 – Anger Management – P Jam

The forth was something special. I remember hearing this track called Tribal Affair in a club a few years back. I ran up to Elijah and asked him “Who’s tune is this”! I found out later it was Champion. I was around Dj Pioneer a lot in 2010. No matter where Dj Pioneer played up and down the UK, from Uni dances, to the Urban raves to the dress up posh clubs, the track Motherboard had the same affect, straight pull upppppp lol!!! I knew Champion was boss and was already known, but people couldn’t put the face to the name. So this release was to put a change to that, and indeed it did. Putting out the Motherboard EP was one of the best things I’ve done.

HDR004 – Motherboard EP – Champion

HDR005, the fifth was with artist I had under my wing when I ran Aftershock, Mz Bratt . Selecta was tearing up club land, regular spins from myself, Skream, Benga, Hatcha, Mistajam, Shy Fx, etc. Produced by Redlight. I employed remixes from Nights Slugs record label boss Bok Bok and Butterz golden boy wonder Royal T .

HDR005 – Selecta Remixes – Mz Bratt

This release was a stepping stone for me and my label. Full Attention was the sixth release. It featured singing sensation Ruby Lee Ryder. It was the first Hardrive record to get play listed. It went B list on BBC 1xtra. I’ve played this records all over the world and seeing people react to it and going ape is a beautiful thing and having all the big wig deejays playing this record was amazing. I still play this tune to this day.

HDR006- Full Attention – Terror Danjah feat Ruby Lee Ryder

I’m still on this magical adventure, I plan to release the first CD on Hardrive entitled Hard Wired featuring myself Kode 9, Zed Bias, Champion, Joker, Falty DL, Swindle, D.O.K, Sinden, P Jam, etc.

Sorry to ramble on a bit, but this just a sample of my life lol, I hope you continue to follow and support the label and the movement, thanks for reading.
