You might have heard of Reginald Omas Mamode IV but we guess you probably haven’t yet.

His first official release was voted as “Best of 2013″ by Gilles Peterson and he included it on the latest Brownswood Bubblers compilation. Five Easy Pieces heard that tune a few months ago and asked him for a whole EP, which will drop in early November. We believe this is his first dj set.

We’ve been a fan of The Last Skeptik for years but completely bugged out when he dropped his André mixtape via Noisey a month ago. So we thought why not bring the ruckus to our favourite basement by recreating that mix, live?

I do have a penchant for corporate identities. Luckily for me Wallace Henning has a some great Flickr sets to feed my habit. This “British Airways General Graphics Handbook” Wallace believes documents the identity designed by Landor in December 1984, which ran until June 1997.

BTG031 at SMS ft. Jimmy Edgar, James Fox, Call Super and BTG DJs BTG031 at SMS ft. Jimmy Edgar, James Fox, Call Super and BTG DJs

Bridging the Gap are back at Stop Making Sense and we’re mad excited.

Our special guest is someone we’ve been a fan of for years. He has changed his sound since his early days but there has always been something unique about him. His new album sees him take this a step further and we love it. James Fox played an brilliant warm up set this NYE for secretsundaze at The Troxy and he is generally a solid dj. His releases are all brilliant too so it made sense to have him join. Call Super has played for BTG every year since it was founded back in 2009, ie he is one of our favourite djs. He released a brilliant EP last year which has been followed up by some high profile remixes this year. Count Choc is ecstatic to finally rep a boat party and won’t be throwing anyone of the pier this time around.
