Tim Green takes Bedlam to new heights
Nearly 2 years in the running and Bedlam just seems to be going from strength to strength….
Over the course of nearly 2 years since the creation of the profound Maidstone (Kent) underground night Bedlam [Kent], it seems that Tim Green & Co are determined to make their mark on the scene as they reach new heights.
Bedlam, being the night of fast rising UK talent, DJ/Producer Tim Green. Tim Green being the man behind great tracks like “Old Sunshine”, who has seen both his name and production work on outstanding labels such as Get Physical, Dirtybird and Cocoon. And the Co being the dedicated people [Forward Thinking Music Management] behind the organisation of the night, helping both Tim Green and Bedlam to reach new heights.
From day one hosting the likes of M.A.N.D.Y., Martin Buttrich, Audio Fly, Lee Burridge, Matthias Tanzmann, Emerson Todd and 2000 And One, Bedlam has been smashing places like Maidstone hot spot, The Loft, some old abandoned cinema and now the historic Chatham monument, The Tunnel. And Bedlam seems to be focusing on those venues that are just dripping with pure underground vibe, which seems to be another key to its success along with the countless talent of DJs they are drafting in!
And with The Tunnel being the prime location we made sure we were at the Bedlam 1st Birthday almost 1 year ago. Where we soaked up the energy of Tim Green banging out his very own “Old Sunshine” and Matthias Tanzmann building the crowd with Yousef’s “Come Home”. We can honestly say that Bedlam @ The Tunnel is a truly momentous night indeed. Which is why Bedlam at The Tunnel returns once again this weekend [29 Jan] to host rising Italian house star Leon and very special guest Cassy. And of course resident Tim Green!
Cassy, well-known for playing DC10, Cocoon (Ibiza), Panorama Bar and Fabric, is undoubtably one of the best DJs on the scene. With her music being released on Souvenir, Cocoon and the almighty German giant Perlon Records, not to mention her mix CDs for Panorama Bar and Cocoon, she has gained huge respect in the underground scene. Her unique style and party vibe earning her back2back sessions with Ricardo Villalobos as she focuses on weaving deep and dark house music, twisted techno along with skill and finesse. There’s no doubt about how things are going to turn out for Bedlam!
Leon returns to Bedlam after having played an impressive set at the beginning of 2010 alongside M.A.N.D.Y. Having releases out on Nick Curly’s Cecille Records and Steve Lawler’s VIVa MUSiC, his talents have been gaining recognition from world-class DJs as Pete Tong, Ricardo Villalobos, Carl Cox, Luciano, Laurent Garnier, Loco Dice, M.A.N.D.Y., Tiefschwarz, Matthias Tanzmann, Nic Fanciulli, Danny Howells and Marco Carola. Adding to that, an extensive 17 date tour of the USA and Canada along with constant dates in Italy, UK, Germany, Holland, Russia and Spain, it’s not hard to see why Bedlam has got Leon back behind the console.
Which brings us back to the point of success. Because it’s not just the countless number of exceptional DJs that give the feeling of climbing success, it’s also with the added expansion and launch of Bedlam London. An act of proof that Tim Green & Co not only have the credentials but also the vision – “determined to make their mark on the scene”.
Bedlam London, set for a secret East London venue on the 19th March, boasts the presence of the Cadenza star known for the hit release “Elle” and collaboration with Cadenza co-star Cesar Merveille, Columbian born Pablo Cahn along with Crosstown Rebels duo, Art Department. – One word – Sick!
All we can conclude is that London may be a bigger pond but with Bedlam’s track record and reputation, it was inevitable that it would start to out-grow its current location and search for a larger environment, which will simple fuel its success.
Weekend 42 – 14, 15, 16, 17 Oct….
This week’s round up has grown massively since the previous issue of “Weekend Round Up”, showing off some very amazing night in some of the hot spots of the underground club scene over Europe.
A few weeks back we had published an article about a massive weekend in London and once again, the capital is going to be pumping. Friday night will be the starter of things to come with Krafty Kuts headlining a breaks night and Dan Ghenacia and friends partying away in Hewitt Street Car Park.
But it’s Saturday night which is going to kill you and not just for the long hours of partying or the massive line ups. More for the fact that you’ll be completely spoilt for choice as not only will fabric be celebrating its birthday with a massive night, which seems more like a marathon, but there are also the infamous nights; “Wiggle” and “Shake It!”. And that’s without mentioning that Ivan Smagghe and Derrick Carter will also be gracing the London with their presence.
In fact we would be interested to know which one of these nights would tickle your fancy more….
