Next guest mix this coming Sunday…
Wifey is a London clubnight with its roots in showcasing UK sounds like garage, grime, bassline, funky and all things related. With nearly six years in the promoting game Jim, Ralph and Robin (a.k.a. Diskomo Oblast, Ralph LTF and DJ Set) have got that combination of indisputable taste in music plus knowing how to put on a great party; the nights of theirs I’ve made it to have all been memorable for intimate, fun vibes all round as well as the tunes being spot-on.
Some of their guests in the last couple of years include Cut Hands, Joe, Jam City, Lee Gamble, Randomer, Bass Clef, Elgato, Kowton and Beneath as well as support from the likes of Manchester’s Swing Ting and Don’t Watch That’s Tim and Barry. Their nights take place in various East London venues such as Alibi, The Waiting Room, Dance Tunnel and a certain Hackney loft space, and they’ve made radio appearances on Hessle Audio’s Rinse FM show as well as having played a regular slot on Deja Vu FM and running their own podcast series.
Resident/promoter Diskomo Oblast has put together a mix for Beat Beneath to showcase where Wifey is at these days, so expect various flavours of techno, house, garage and more, all with that unmistakable UK bump.
Their next night is on 8th November in Dance Tunnel, Dalston - lineup TBA, definite date for your diary if you’re about London at the time…

Beautiful music and lovely packaging with interview and photos
if you’re like me and taking it easy rather than getting involved in all the bank holiday weekend techno shenanigans on the go right now then tune in to Beat Beneath tonight to make sure you don’t miss your fix.
New music from Coni, Tin Man/Dozzy, Gesloten Cirkel, Djrum, Nicuri and plenty more plus some of the usual digging through the shelves for some timeless goodies.
Had a couple of seriously good guest shows last month but now I’m itching to do a proper 2 hour mix especially with all the good music that’s been emerging lately.
Expect new gear from Mathematics, Strength Music, Horizontal Ground, Kangding Ray, Planetary Assault Systems, Christina Vantzou, plus plenty other good shit.
Listen here from 8-10pm tonight live, or anytime after.

I’ve got an array of guest spots lined up for the radio show in 2014 so it’s time to present the first: New Jersey native Ruben Candelario a.k.a. Nicuri.
Nicuri’s friends and associates include the likes of Dj Qu and Joey Anderson, and he has been refining his own take on that dark, deep raw house sound that’s been consistently coming out of the tri-state area in recent years. He already has several releases to his name including contributions to the always high-calibre Exchange Place series on Qu’s Strength Music label and 2012’s Paradigms EP on Bliq; and his A Lucid Dream/Moments EP is dropping imminently on UK label Mora Music.
Those in the know are predicting big things for Ruben in the coming year, and it’s my pleasure to present an exclusive one hour mix from him on this coming Sunday’s Beat Beneath.
The mix will also be available to download shortly after as part of a brand new podcast series - stay tuned :)
