We managed to get our hands on the live audio of the incredible set that the legendary DJ Jaffa played at the Metabeats ‘Caviar Crackle Block Party’ this weekend. It was an incredible day of bubbling with friends and family to celebrate the release of Meta’s second LP and all the DJ’s on the day were dropping gem upon gem of good music. This hour long set is one of those ones that truly keeps it moving across an absolute tonne of classics and finely mined new tracks. One of the nicest mixes we’ve heard in a minute. Definitely one for the music heads out there
A collaborative project between ourselves and some of the extended family of creatives we’ve been lucky enough to have worked with over the years. (And some new ones.)
After an intial idea between Mayor & Metabeats and themeekshall laying the type and idea out for us, we approached the incredibly talented Spike Dennis. Known for being a ‘boy who sews’ he crafts some beautifully twisted and subverted images of unicorns in stitching. No shit. So we knew he was the man we needed to tackle the gold thread embroidery. Then our friends over at Gallery Sixty Six came through generously on the framing and staining side. The touch that brings the idea on home! Finally our long term friend (and photographer don) Alex Mills took the photo to ensure it was all captured just right.
And this quick little vid was shot by our boy Huw ‘Cadillac Johnson’ Caddy.
Album is available on iTunes worldwide now.
To help celebrate the release of the Metabeats ‘Caviar Crackle’ LP on June 25th, we figured we’d throw a party. Not a ‘launch party’ as such though. Just a simple party, where friends and fans (and friends of fans) could all come along to live it up and bubble with us. It’s free entry. And on from 3pm ’til late.
So we got a few friends to play and got a sweet looking spot for it out the back of Base, Cardiff for us all to get crunk. It’s open air but still covered so it’s pretty damn perfect. And on top of that, simply because we’re enjoying ourselves, the first 50 TO 70 people to get hold of us will be given/fed/hooked up with, a complimentary, ‘Caviar Cracker’ of the food type. We (b)allin’ this together.
As well as the DJ’s we’ve got our fingers crossed we’ll be joined by the beautiful and talented Vanity Jay for a short P.A. and who knows who else might swing through…
Bring your dancing shoes.
CD Versions of the album will be available on the day for a one off price of the most value for money five pounds you ever did saw.
