I trust you’ve been having a pleasant Zombie Jebus weekend. This Tuesday Hubie Sounds returns to the NSB Radio airwaves with another cracking show chock full of win. This week I’ll be broadcasting a live set by Ford Audio (aka Merka), recorded at last week’s banging Bass[sic] event at The Cornershop in Shoreditch. Expect to hear plenty of the-man-formerly-known-as-Merka’s trademark eclectic beats and filthy basslines, as well as some exclusive new material from the man himself.

But wait, there’s more! I’ll also be hitting the decks and spinning my usual selection of funk, hip hop, breaks and house for your lovely ears.

back once again with the ill behaviour

30 March, 2012

Hi party people!

I’m proud to announce the details of the next Bass[sic] party taking place tomorrow night, Saturday 31st March, once again at The Cornershop, Shoreditch! This time around the Bass[sic] team are very excited to welcome not one but two dance music legends to the Bass[sic] decks! Read on for all the info…



* 8pm – 2am – FREE ENTRY ALL NIGHT!



* CUT LA ROC [ROCSTAR] – Lee Potter, aka Cut La Roc, made his name in the hurly-burly big beat days of the late ’90s. Signed to Skint Records, the same label as Norman ‘Fatboy’ Cook, he was responsible for pioneering the big beat sound worldwide alongside Midfield General, Bentley Rhythm Ace and Fatboy Slim himself. Cut La Roc held a four-year residency at the Big Beat Boutique in his hometown of Brighton. He’s toured all around the world, appeared on Top Of The Pops, set a new Guinness world record for DJing with the most decks at once (nine!), and has recorded with vocalists such as Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody.

* FORD AUDIO aka MERKA – Born in deepest darkest Somerset thirty odd years ago, Merka rose to the top of the international breaks scene after the release of his debut album Beserka in 2007. Releases on Re:connect, Big Square, Unstable and many others helped cement his status as a breakbeat maverick resulting in remixes for the likes of the Dub Pistols, Soul of Man and Unique 3. After a sabbatical he’s back, this time under the guise of Ford Audio. Bass[sic] will be the first place to hear Ford Audio and this new beginning for one of the scene’s most forward thinking DJs.









* MAP:



I hope you can join us back in the rave cave, downstairs at The Cornershop where we belong! Once again, entry to this party is FREE all night long and, considering the heavy lineup, we’re expecting the venue to be rammed so make sure you get down there nice and early to avoid disappointment!

Also make sure you check out our mixcloud for loads of exclusive mixes to get you in the mood for the party:

See you down the front!

HUBIE SOUNDS with special guests Curl And Dean

24 May, 2010

Hey everyone!

Hubie Sounds is back on the interweb airwaves this Tuesday. This time around, as well as the usual selection of hot new joints and stone cold classics, we’ve got an exclusive guest mix from essex-based breakbeateers Curl And Dean. Here’s all you need to know about the dynamic duo…

Curl & Dean grew up in different parts of Essex immersed in hip hop culture, spraying walls & spitting into mics in the long hot summers of their youth. It was after the dungaree & floppy hat raves of ’89 that Curl bought his first keyboard, soon adding a 707 & 950 sampler, he started to PA to the ‘hands in the air’ rave circuit.

Meanwhile, Deano Bobalino (Boba), with his love for hip hop beats, started to learn the art of DJing, getting his first pair of decks as an xmas present at the age of 15. It was not long before he started to DJ & MC on the local pirate radio stations before throwing himself into the ‘hardcore you know the score’ rave scene.

After several releases on his own progressive label, Curl was introduced to Boba, who at the time was a member of the breakbeat band Axcess, which lead to a remix courtesy of Axcess for his label ‘Free for a Girl’. However, it was during a summer break in Ibiza, that Curl, with his early house and progressive background was introduced by Boba to the sound of breaks. This introduction convinced them – whilst supping yet another cold San Miguel on their inflatable shark lilos – to blend their musical production styles, thus creating the Curl & Dean Sound.

Shortly thereafter, Big Square Records head-bearded-honcho (and one-time Hubie Sounds guest DJ) Big Nick D asked the lads to remix a Ben & Lex tune ‘Floorburn’, this was followed by a further release of their own ‘Kabul’ which featured an excellent Merka Remix on the flip. The original was also licensed on the V2 released compilation LP ‘Urban Deluxe’.

Their follow-up release was the rolling sounds of the ‘Snow Buddha’, also released on Big Square Records with remixes from Future Funk Squad & MI Loki. The success of the ‘Buddha was literally measured in inches, causing the snow to fall all over the U.K from release, this little beauty earned a number 1 spot in the DJ Download Beats & Breaks Chart, a DJ magazine recommendation & support from many, including Jay Cunning’s Kiss FM show.

The lads also had a tune, ‘Shining Path’, featured on the NSB Uncovered compilation, released towards the end of ’09 on Ape Records. As well as throwing their own parties around London town, Curl & Dean present their own radio show on IBreaks Radio. Their next release, ‘Bantha’ is out soon on Scarcity, with remixes from Beta, Run Riot, Mesmer, Deriwer & Ruido, the lads also have some remixes due for release soon on Scarcity and Yellow Finger.

We hope you can join us this Tuesday 25th May @ 9pm UK time, live and direct on NSB Radio!
