RJA12 : Simon Busby

Next up in the series is London-based disc(o) jockey Simon Busby, who turns in a dope mix of pitch-down bangers for your listening pleasure.

Originally crafting instrumental hip-hop mixtapes before discovering the Electric Chair whilst living in Manchester, Simon hit London in 2005 with his much loved Short Circuit night, before creating his new Glitterball events which fill interesting spaces in the big smoke with and friendly crowd and a cool mixture of disco and house. Sounds right up our street! The mix itself has plenty of high points including Mark 7, Pete Herbert, Mark E and more, so tuck in.

Sorry - no tracklist

Tasty new Mark E mix for Warm ...

Tuesday, December 22


About all that remains of my memory after Saturday night's shenanigans playing with MCDE @ Tronicsole. Anyone care to do the honours on the track title? Think this was about 2:30am, although I was very, very drunken by this point.

I am NEVER drinking again!

Weekend (again)

Tomorrow night at the Admiral in Glasgow, it's Motor City Drum Ensemble till 4am (plus me warming up till 1ish). Well up for this!

Any London mutha-fuggas can catch the Revenge at Plastic People tonight alongside Todd Terje et al, and finally Manchesterites are in for a treat on Sunday as G will be doing a hush hush bar gig somewhere in the city centre.

Have a good'un whatever you're all up to ;)

Just Be Good

Dub just out on 12" with vocals from Ms Crazy P and a tasty Ron Basejam mix. New Digital mixes coming soon.

Warmageddon Mix

In preparation for Plastic People this Friday ...

Flying High

When I was Djing a couple of weeks ago and dropped the Linkwood & House of Traps jam "Barely Eagle" a guy came up to me raving about the video for the original Dennis Parker track thats heavily sampled in it. Just checked it there and it is indeed ace. That silver jumpsuit is going on santa's list. And the 'tache ;)

Dennis had it all - a day job as a porn actor with a sideline in making disco. Something we can all aspire to! Apart from the contracting aids and committing suicide bit obviously...

That Time Of Year...

...and so it's time to look out the only christmas record required - a Knight Rider christmas! Its a totally fake rip off song not featuring any vocals from the Hoff or anyone, but that makes it better (I think!).

Never managed to find a decent quality version but head on over to the David Hasslehoff archives (!) here and grab a copy ;)

RJA11 : Deep Space Orchestra

We're coming thick & fast now for the rest of the year with a plethora of new mixes to get out before the xmas slow-down. Next up is a cracking mix from our Deep Space Orchestra chums from down south.

Deep Space Orchestra are Chris Barker (Jigsaw/TrebleO) & Si Murray (Cronk Family Enterprises/Jazzchops), two music afficionados hailing from the Liverpool area. With one joint release already out on our Five20East imprint you can expect to hear plenty more from these two in the oh-ten with forthcoming works on Drumpoet and a couple of others which have escaped my mind at present The mix itself is a tip-top blend of deep dancefloor workouts ranging from exclusive digital dubplates courtesy of the boys themselves through to classic chicago and detroit jams.

PS as if having OOFT DJing in Glasgow this Friday wasn't enough, the DSO boys are gracing the city with a debut performance for the Cosmic Microwave night at new venue La Cheetah too, so you're really spoilt for choice ;)

Soul City & Benji

Our homies at Soul City are doing a tidy little party in their original Covent Garden basement this Saturday December 5th. Benji B, Matty Archer & Si Finnegan are on starship controls.

Boulevard, Wellington Street, Covent Garden WC2 7BD


A quick update for the coming weekend - you can catch us both at the boutique Mamasan venue in Glasgow on Friday night for our monthly late night bar / micro club set (11pm-3am). On Saturday I'll be laying down some pre-club beats at our local favourite IVY Bar from 9pm while The Revenge gets sorted for his 4 hour set at the Horse & Groom on Sunday. Bosh!

RJA10 : Tosh Ohta

Next up in the series is another new face - Bournemouth based Tosh Ohta. He's a medium sized anglo-japanese crate digger / enthusiast, and has been running his night This Sporting Life at Sixty Million Postcards (the infamous Lock Tavern's sister pub) for 3 years.

The mix spans 3 decades of music, taking influences from everywhere including Factory Records (Quando Quango and Mondays), 80s pop (Kate Bush, Fleetwood Mac), Proto house (Mr Fingers / Psychotropic) and many other places. Tosh's night This Sporting Life has just migrated to London (debuting at the Lock Tavern on Chalk Farm Road) so keep the eyes peeled for more dates in the big smoke if you like the sound of the mix.

RJA09 : Hushpuppy

Resident DJ at the legendary R-P-Z Thursday night sessions at the Glasgow School of Art, Hushpuppy takes us on a cosmic odyssey of the highest order.

The mix gives an insight into the earlier hours of an R-P-Z Thursday, before guests such as Alex Metric & Autokratz (playing live at the end of this month) crank up the pressure and get the Art Schoolers brewing up to fever pitch. Selection-wise this mix is something of a departure from previous Ruffjamz episodes, so we hope you enjoy it as much as we did ;)

Sorry - no tracklist.

Glasgow Connection

Thought I'd give everyone this little ditty myself and Telford from the Sub Club made a couple of months back. We never did anything with it due to the samples used, but I've been playing it a lot in deeper points of a set as it's a great little mid-tempo groover. Enjoy

Roll on...

RJA07 : Esa

Glasgow's resident South African house aficionado Esa mixes up a decades worth of 4/4 gold in tribute to his late father.

In the short time he's been living in Glasgow Esa has got stuck right in to the house scene and put together several Red Bull workshops with dons such as Linkwood and Josh Wink, as well as bagging himself a resident spot at our favourite local night Subculture. His dad Mervin used to DJ in S.A. back in the day, so to mark a decade since his passing he's delved deep into his collection to put together this blend of some mighty fine classic deep house, fittingly titled "A decade of dedication Mervin Granger Williams '99-'09".

Sorry - no tracklist
