GIAF w/ New Jackson & Barry Redsettaz

Bap To The Future Presents a Major Problems Records showcase, featuring:

New Jackson Live (Hivern Discs, Permanent Vacation, MPR)
Barry Redsetta (MPR, Out To Lunch)


So we're running not one, but TWO gigs as part of this years #GIAF! as y'all already know, we're running a boat party with DMX Krew on July 25th, but before that we're delighted to announce our first takeover of the main room. Hyped! And nervous!

The main room has undergone an amazing transformation in the last few months and it's now hands down one of our favourite rooms to boogie in.

We decided that for this tres momentous gig we'd bring down New Jackson to perform one of his mesmeric live sets, having just rocked Body & Soul, where word on the street (in the field?) was that his set was one of the highlights. With releases on Talabot's Hivern Discs and euro powerhouse Permanent Vacation under his belt, as well as on his regular home of Major Problems, we're looking forward to hearing such hits as the woodwind lushness of 'Having A Coke With You' and the uptempo electro-funk of Metroflex (and if he was to bosh out his unreal reworking of Tr One's Viceroy 9c we would truly lose our shit). This promises to be melancholic, drum machiney, vocodered goodness of the highest order.

Speaking of Major Problems, we've also got Barry Redsetta, MPR bossman down to play a few tunes. Not really in need of a massive spiel, Barry's simply one of the best DJs Ireland has produced. Highlights for us of the many times we've seen him play include dropping that ace SND record on Pan over the Twisted Pepper's Void rig and playing Tr-One anthem Living In Now before Jeff Mills a coupla years ago up in Dublin.

As well as being a boss selector, Barry's A&R skills are up to scratch having released records by Bap-approved chaps like Terriers, Frank B and Compassion Crew (whose Masters Of The Gentlemanly Arts 12" was one of our favourite releases of last year)
