Wiggle NYE 2012
Wiggle in the new year…
Hot on Satan’s tail with Wiggle’s debut Halloween spooktacular, which went down deeper than the devil himself. Whilst Wiggle are still picking the remains of bats brains from between their teeth, they are triple excited to announce their next shindig back 385 feet above London at the Paramount with their usual NYE Party. Wiggle will be giving away a free drink to everyone with an advance ticket, who arrives before 23:00 and opening up at 21:30 so everyone has enough time to get in and ready for midnight.
To welcome in the New Year, wiggle has gone to extra effort to ensure a good line-up of DJs playing guaranteed swinging music to shuffle away on the dance-floor to.
Prepossessing the ability to effortlessly maneuver through the realms of house and techno, as dawn breaks over 2012 the many facets of Tim Green’s production dexterity is casting reflections in innumerable directions, illuminating a musical and thought-induced excursion on which the 27-year old is embarking.
Experimenting across the spectrum of electronic music, whether putting out reverberating minimal techno of Amnesia peak-time kind-of-measures, or sprinkling some of that unmistakeable TG charm over productions of popular appeal, his work is stamped by ingenuity, fearlessness and fun – which also granted him the ‘Best Breakthrough Producer’ award at DJ Mag’s Best of British in 2010.
After fully bursting onto the scene in 2008 with modern classics “Revox” and “Mr Dry” snapped up by highly-revered Dirtybird and Trapez Records respectively, and picking up support from top players such as Sven Vath, Richie Hawtin and Luciano along the way, Tim swiftly catapulted himself into the upper echelons of the techno hierarchy. A string of high profile releases followed in short succession adding Cocoon, Get Physical, Saved & Four:Twenty to an already impressive back catalogue, as well as remixes for XL Records, Sci+Tec, Moshi Moshi and Souvenir.
With an idiosyncratic groove and off-kilter cheekiness his sound has seen him tour the electronic bastions of the world, including Space – Ibiza, Womb – Tokyo, Fabric – London, Sankeys – Manchester, Watergate – Berlin, D-edge – Sao Paulo, Electric Pickle – Miami, WHP – Manchester, Bestival – Isle Of White, SW4 Festival – London, Zouk – Singapore, Rex Club – Paris. As we are heading into 2012 Tim makes a welcomed return to his underground roots, captivating crowds in more intimate yet discerning settings, along with heading up his own night Bedlam, which is currently on everyone’s lips.
On the production side of things 2012 is already looking like another stella year with a dark and twisted remix of Sacha Robotti featuring Qzen’s Fotograf on Klasse Recordings and, following on from last year’s “In Love EP” on Get Physical, he has teamed up with Robert Dietz & Audiofly for a remix package due for release in April. This summer will see him return once more to Cocoon to release the outstanding “Curious Smile” release, plus an EP for Get Physical and remixes for Supernature & Oh Yeah Records, as well as his much anticipated debut artist album.
If taking into consideration the achievements Tim has reached in the span of merely four years, it is a gathered electronic community that awaits his next move

Wiggle Halloween Howler
Wiggle with the creatures of the night…
When Terry Francis and Nathan Coles started throwing parties, it was pretty much a reaction to their circumstances. Already committed to London’s fledging acid house scene, and both influenced by rare groove and up-tempo soul, they wanted to do something off their own backs, just for their mates, with DJs they liked and Evil Eddie Richards was one of them, so much so, they made him a resident. Over 16 years later the trio are still in the rudest health, noising up nightclubs with that same simple ethos, while Wiggle – the catch-all term covering record label, clubnight and attitude – has also come to typify a style of music; a deep, druggy basement-shaking music to escape in and get down to.

Virginia will really make you Melt
Making the crowd Melt…
Words: George Pearse
So they say when something ain’t broke, don’t fix it. And with Melt 5 having taken the night cosmic, ‘more of the same’ was understandably order of the day. After the elation that the guest-slots of Nick Hoeppner and Tama Sumo gifted those present back in May, the 6th of Melt’s bi-monthly parties needed some heavy DJ artillery. Their call to arms was answered once more by a deadly male/female dynamic. First up was Frenchman Zadig, both playing a live set, and making his debut in London clubland. With him in the trenches on a soggy July night was Virginia, the acclaimed Panorama bar virtuoso, in town for her first UK show since rocking Fabric last December.
