The third and final selection in this year’s boat party warm-up mixtape series comes from Dan Beaumont of Jam Factory fame and a founding member of East London disco protagonists Disco Bloodbath. Dan is co-headlining the upper deck this year alongside young Italian house producer Nicholas (who will be playing live) and here is a 50 minute segment of a live set recorded recently at his Dalston Superstore venue. You can catch the full mix over at Pulse Radio but in the meantime enjoy this flawlessly blended bundle of deep house and disco biscuits.
If you’d like to join us this coming Saturday aboard The Golden Sunrise and catch Dan, Nicholas, Rob Coley in action on the upper deck and Cigarettes and Sunshine and Rad Dad on the lower deck (plus the after party later on), head on over to Resident Advisor now and grab yourself a ticket http://bit.ly/HHa08f. It’s shaping up to be an amazing session!

Here’s the second selection in a series of three mixtapes to help get you in the mood for this month’s midsummer boat party on June 23rd. Resident Rob Coley steps up to the plate to deliver a swift 40 minute set of some of the sounds you’re likely to hear on the top deck, as he kicks off proceedings on the day and is joined by Dan Beaumont (Jam Factory / Dalston Superstore) and young Italian house producer Nicholas (No More Hits / 4Lux / Needwant). Strictly underground house and deep disco on this one and (mostly) taken from the original vinyl, we get tracks from the likes of Two Armadillos,Delano Smith, Rick Wade, Braxton Holmes, Nicholas (of course!), Tom Trago and a host of other cats.
Check it out and if you’d like to join us on the day for just over 11 hours of music-related madness, visit Resident Advisor to pick up your ticket http://bit.ly/HHa08f.
Soul-Identity Boat Party 2012 Warm Up Mix #2: Rob Coley (Soul-Identity) by Soul-Identity Music on Mixcloud
With just over a month to go until this year’s midsummer boat party, we thought it only right we start getting you in the mood. So, with this in mind here’s the first in a series of mixtapes from some of this year’s DJs. First up… Dave Holloway, one third of the Cigarettes and Sunshine crew who host proceedings on the lower deck. Their Epsom Derby Day raves are legendary, and on our previous two boat trips, their out the hat selections have caused conga lines, impromptu dance offs and plenty of smiles. On the day… expect Northern soul rarities aside soul, pop and 80’s beauties, obscure b-sides, funk-fuelled 45s and balearic rock, and of course a smattering of reggae and piano house… here’s a little taster.
On the top deck, we go HOUSE, with Nicholas (No More Hits / 4Lux / Needwant) and Dan Beaumont (Jam Factory / Dalston Superstore) joining resident Rob Coley. But more about that later. If you can’t wait though, visit http://bit.ly/HHa08f for all the info and tickets.
