Description

NOTE: Stay and drink until 3am in the main bar afterwards if you like.

One DJ. One Mic. One sampler (with lots of buttons to fire audio-nostalgia). One set of turntables. Lots to say.

My name is Vinney. I’ve been obsessed with electronic music since I was given a rave-tape in 1991 that featured, amongst other things, The Prodigy's debut single; Charly.

"With a background in both music-radio and talk-radio, DJ Pixelface takes the too-cool-for-school out of electronic music, because he's not that cool. Fascinating meets funny."

The talk begins 40,000 years ago with the first instrument known to mankind; the bone-flute (WAAAAHAY! Excuse me). But I spend most of the talk looking at the last 100 years; the unbelievable story of how we got to that kicking mixtape, and how the tracks were made. You will discover: which Canadian invented the organ? Which French guy started sampling in the 1940’s? Which Japanese dude invented devices that accidentally changed the face of music when they were found in a Chicago pawn shop? What's the most sampled and abused drum-loop ever (from NWA to The Prodigy to Oasis) - and why did the drummer die penniless?

All this with a dedication to making you laugh.

What else was on that mix-tape, and what in humankind's history formed those blissful sounds?

Video & more info here, or just buy a ticket now you lucky beat-lover.
