Oh my gawsh! Joel Martin? In Bucharest? The same Joel Martin who, with Matt Edwards (Radio Slave, Rekid), makes up Quiet Village Project, one of the most in demand producers and remixers this year? Who played for the legendary Francois K in New York four days ago, and as I write is playing in Tokyo? Christ on a bike! It’s been *hell* trying to book him, so it gives me a warm feeling between my legs to announce that he’ll actually be playing for us at EMBRYO on Saturday. Joel will be spinning everything from disco and electro to reggae and afro. It should be a lot of fun…

Check http://beatsinspace.net/ for recent mixes, or http://www.myspace.com/quietvillage2006 for some myspace action. Maybe they’ll put that photo of you trying to suck your cheeks in and look like Pete Doherty on their ‘Friends’ list….

Sean Vinylment, on the other hand, runs the night ‘Pooka’ in Manchester’s trendy Odd bar, and put together the hugely popular mix CD entitled “A Country Practice”, together with World Scratch Champion DJ Woody. Even DJ Magazine, which is written by illiterate public schoolboys, gave it four out of five! Look:

“Great stuff, nice beats, quite a few I didn’t know too”
Strictly Kev (DJ Food / Ninjatune)

“Really well crafted, put together and thought out mix CD combining turntablism and breaks bringing his turntable wizardry fused with a bag of rare breaks and beats, this CD really does kill everything out there rite now.”
DJ Vadim

“They slice and dice it all like samurai chefs and lead you wide-eyed with wonder through an alternative universe wherein Boards of Canada-style moments of childlike delight slip beautifully into strung-out ’70’s funk, kooky jazz grooves and what sounds like the weirdest offcuts from the Bosworth Archive you’ve never heard before. Fascinating frabjous stuff throughout.”
4/5 DJ Magazine
