Wiggle celebrates 19 years of moving and grooving London town and we get seriously upwards again, 385 feet to be precise, at Paramount and It's set to be a birthday bash to remember! It's hard to believe that 19 years have passed since we started our journey and what a journey it's been! One thing is for sure though.. time flies when your having fun! So join us in raising a glass to the sounds of:
Julien Chaptal is a multi-talented, Amsterdam-based Parisian performing both as a live act and DJ. First breaking through in 2007/8 on a young Amsterdam based label called Remote Area and subsequently with releases on labels such as Intacto, 2020 Vision and most recently on Saved, Julien has remained at the forefront of the many talents which have emerged from the vibrant Dutch scene.
Performing live always has been one of Chaptal’s main strengths, from the time he started out some ten years ago with his first group Le Clic to the recently formed live-duo with producer David Labeij, MFD. (MFD is also the name of the brand new vinyl-only label the duo have started). As a solo live act he’s also made quite a name, performing at many of the leading clubs and festivals in Europe and as far afield as San Francisco, Seoul and a South African tour, which closed 2012 for him. Yet playing live (and traveling with a lot of equipment) is relatively rare in Julien’s busy tour schedule. Renowned as one of the best DJ’s Amsterdam has to offer – with a diverse style that ranges from deep house and house to tech house and into techno - he has a DJ residency in one of the hotspots of the city: the famous Studio 80, and is a regular on both the WKND Thursday nights and the Welcome to the Future parties.
2013, however, has the look of a vintage year. Julien’s ‘Illin’ EP debuted on Saved at the beginning of February, which kicks off a stellar run of releases through until summer. ‘Tout Près De Toi’ follows on Supernature, ‘The Look On Your Face’ EP is scheduled for release on Defected in April, along with a pair of remixes for Luke Solomon on Classic. A collaboration with Lauhaus on Supplement Facts ‘Jujuman’ - with remix from Franck Roger and a scheduled EP on Classic rounds out a prolific run of form.
Rob Collman (Alienation, Submerge)
Ever since he won Muzik Magazine's DJ competition in the mid 90's, Rob has been wowing crowds with his impeccable mixing skills. He’s one of the founders of Alienation and therefore a forefather of the underground deep house meets techno circuit. He was a regular guest at Stereo Studio in Croatia and he’s been grooving up the radio waves on Electric Lion and Groovesite, Croatia. A rock-solid regular behind the decks at all the parties that really matter, you can hear him for yourself here.
