10 reasons you should love… Summer time


With exams and the final Taystea night of the academic year at Monkey (which went really well, thanks to all who came and supported us again), we haven’t really had time to post as many blog entries as before. Nevertheless, it’s fully summer now, which is good for many reasons, but particularly good because it means both that we have time to write articles and also that the music scene right-now is jam-packed with summery tunes, perfect for a BBQ, chilling on the beach or even just sat in your garden in the sun.

So, I decided that instead of releasing this next 10 reasons to focus on one producer, I’d focus it upon DTB’s favourite summer tunes right now, nice and early, so you can make the most of them in the sun all summer long. Get ready for some funky, disco(y?), uplifting summer house tunes. Viva la 120(ish).

Disco’s Dead, but this party’s just getting started.

Having been out of touch with the UK music scene for a couple of months, it was incredibly refreshing to be plunged back in ears first by one of my favourite London labels. Discos Dead are an emerging  UK Techno & House label whose back catalogue includes the likes of Circula, Chubba & Pulsecode.  This week saw its third official vinyl release – Effys: Forth/The Look.

We’re having another party…

We're having another party.

Following the roaring success of our opening night, we thought we’d throw another shindig; one that will taint the room with lazer beams.

The 16th of May is intended to provide locals with a quality house night, and to provide students with a blow-out after dissertation and final coursework hand-ins and before everyones exams get properly underway.

So, if you’re in Swansea on the 16th of May head down to Monkey Bar to catch some of the freshest House sounds about: from U.K underground, to balearic, to the funky, the techy and, obviously, the deep. Stay tuned for the line-up and exclusive deals!

Much love, Tom and Joe
