Gig News – Fracture Clinic, 16th May 2008, Timbuk2, Bristol.

Posted: May 5, 2008 in Music
Fracture Clinic is back with a vengeance on May 16th, with none other than the Bristol album launch exclusive from the godfather of breaks himself……………….Yep, that’s right, RENNIE PIGLREM.

Anyone who’s had even the slightest passing interest in breakbeat will know Rennie; the man is simply synonymous with the scene.

In 1996, along with Adam Freeland, Tayo and Ian Williams, Rennie set up the Friction club in night in London which truly let the way in the evolution of the breakbeat scene. In fact the four of them actually coined the term ‘Nu Skool’ as a way of describing the music they were playing.

He has only gone forward since then and has continued to DJ all over the world and wow audiences with his dancefloor-friendly funk-infused breaks sets. He has held residencies in Rome and London (at his own HUM night and now STIR). He is also part of the team responsible for the ‘Breaksday’ concept – which has had parties in Miami, London and The Glade Festival.

Over the years there has been release after release from Rennie and each one has gained acclaim from DJs and critics alike. Ranging from the breakspoll award winning single ‘2 Freaks’, the incredibly well known (and also award winning) remix of ‘Emit/Collect’ to the most recent smash ‘Eraser’ which earned the coveted ‘Single of the Month’ accolade in DJ mag and IDJ.

But its not any normal Rennie Pilgrem show, oh no, were over the moon to announce that we are hosting the Bristol launch exclusive of Rennie’s brand new artist album ‘Skin’.

Forthcoming on TCR recordings, its bound to brimming with proper breakbeats as everyone expects from the ‘Godfather of breaks’……well lets be honest I hardly think its going to be an experimental album fusing folk and psy-trance is it?!

Get yourself down to Timbuk2 on May 16th to see the man himself drop album exclusives and the usual spot on mix of up to date breaks, we’re sure its going to be one to remember….

As well as our headlining guest for the evening we will have our usual varied approach to the rest of the music on hand for the entirety of the night.

We will have our solid residents Sharks, Shaun Phillips and Spooks. Who will be serving up a platter of breaks, electro, house and dubstep in the manner that only they know best.

Also on the night we will be welcoming’s Ben Hunter to bring even more of the lo slung dubstep sounds that dominated room 2 last time, proving popular with listeners we’re certain Ben will be a perfect addition to the nights proceedings.

That’s not all though were proud to hand a timbuk2 debut to the one and only Proliffix, taking influence from the best side of true British hip hop, he has rocked party after party and gig after gig in his hometown and is now ready to take Bristol by storm, and let me point out, this wont be a DJ set, this is will be a live performance of Proliffix’s original work from album ‘PC2BC’, adding even more variety to the nights entertainment.
