Elhornet (influences set)

We were lucky enough to have Elhornet of Pendulum fame as a secret guest three years back! Word of mouth had spread & he knew the deal with our intimate venue & strictly alternative policy. Here's what he had to say about the set, we all agree it's one of the best we've heard so far

"So after hearing about these parties for ages I agreed to play one. No billing, no advertising! It was Xmas 2010 and I turned up with 2 record boxes filled with music that I hold dear, and music that influenced me as an artist throughout my life. Vinyl crackles, skipping records and questionable blends are all intentional and come with love because the people dem they lovin' it!. 100% wax selection from my collection. Enjoy."
Cheers @elhornet we certainly did!

DJ Storm (Strictly Vinyl Set)

We're digging through our archives & presenting some of the best live mixes from Insession. First up it's Metalheadz own DJ Storm - Here's what she told us the day this was recorded.

"So I've been washing records for days, when I got my Old Old Skool tunes out of my storage space they were very dirty indeed. This set has a really special place in my heart, Kemistry and I collected all these tunes together and never got the chance to play them out together, so I will be playing this set for both of us." 

Enough said really. Enjoy the set & go follow @djstormdnb

Flight (Dub Reggae Set) GM#002

We continue our new Mix Series with Genre & Metalheadz resident plus Rinse FM presenter DJ Flight. Having dropped a great Reggae selection at our 4th birthday last year she was kind enough to go back in & record this exclusive mix for us!

"I picked a selection of my favourite artists and producers on a Dub/Roots tip, including Horace Andy, Barry Brown, Johnny Clarke, Bunny Lee, King Tubby, Sly & Robbie etc. The music in this mix comes from (arguably) one of the most creative periods in Reggae history: the 1970s/ very early 1980s."
