Yea, the past few shows have been slightly on the sporadic, in so much as it’s been 4 weeks since the last show. I can only apologise for that. July has been a very busy month for me and family functions (including the christening of my spiffingly awesome niece) do have to take priority to me pushing some noisy bollocks through the internets. Mind you, quite a few quality mixes have been going up on darkfloor.co.uk. With that said, this week, we’re back with one hell of a showcase, from producer: Mazzula.
“There isn’t a scene for my music in Stoke”
Living in what might be called a ‘cultural void’ as far as dance music is concerned, has only further inspired Paul ‘Mazzula’. Treading the line between electro breaks and techno, recognition has been growing steadily with artists such as Radioactive Man and Dave Clarke supporting.
The current Alive EP is winning Mazzula many plaudits, and is a fitting follow up to earlier, well-received releases on Data-Trace and Bassgun. 2010 is shaping up to be busy, with him working with i-o inc, and Digital Distortions, along with another EP on Data-Trace later in the year.
Known for his livesets, this showcase is a good example of what to expect. Never doing things the easy way, Mazzula’s ethic means his tracks are blown open when played live, and all are different interpretations of the full released tracks, broken down into component parts and re-stitched for full impact.
“I enjoy playing out, and can’t see the point of djing my own tracks. I want as much out of it as the audience.”
