POST # 3 & 4 @ Studio 26!

POST # 3 went down on Saturday and it turned into a very mixed bag of fruity delights. Opening the night J Stax played some rather nice ambient selections along with some minimal visuals, old super 8, black & white Godzilla (be up on the Vimeo & Mixcloud in a few weeks). I had another bash, round 3 for me this time starting with some ambient / acoustic treats blending into some more up tempo selections. 

Thankfuly DJ Bad Panda was on hand to show us how to get the party started with his ecclectic mix of funk / soul / hip hop / 80's bangers, always a good mix and a talented dj, Jonny really helped add some class to the night. After jumping back and forth with Jim they both stepped down to allow John A a turn who took the vibe in a whole new direction altogether. 

All the while the video mixer was being put to good use by myself, Fraser Denholm and new kid on the block Louie McCrudden who all created their own special blends using the limited selection of dvds I'd brought down. Some really cool effects and visuals were streaming onto the walls anyway, I just wish I still had all those damm tvs! Anyway there should be full Audio / Video podcasts from the night going up online this month on the 26 Collective Vimeo & Mixcloud pages.

The final treat of the night came in the shape of the lovely Stwo's who started the drawing board! The original idea was for them to do a mini mural for the night but of course by the end it had decscended into a sharpie free for all but I don't think anyone minded, I'm glad people wanted to leave their marks behind, the finished board looks pretty mental. 

But alas nothing lasts forever, were going to sand it down a fresh for POST # 4 coming this Friday! Expect more of the same, vinyl, visuals, a screening of Sufjan Stevens The BQE film and a special live set from Stewcat! Clothes on or clothes off? Well that remains to be seen but the door will be open from 8pm, £2 donation as we are a self funded group so all donations will go towards keeping the space running and helping to put on more fun film, music, art & experimental events!
