Dirt Project This Thursday

Unfortunately, due to unforseen circumstances involving stolen laptops and impromptu house moves, Matjazz & Handsome Paddy will not be able to perform their 4 turntable routine at the Dirt Project this Thursday.

However, Paddy will instead be joined by none other than DJ Mayhem who will be dropping scratches and accapellas over the mix on a second setup. Check the vid below for a taster of his skills on the cut. Roll on Thursday!

Oi oi dude's & dudette's!!

Next Thursday 27th November is the launch of The Dirt Project downstairs at Mr.Jones!
For all you 'ravers' that are getting bored of Electro, come down and experience some quirky beats/dirty breaks and class A scratching!! ;)

For the launch night along with our resident dj 'Handsome Paddy' we have Sean Hughes flying over from Scouse land!

Here's a little teaser of how good it's going to be nxt week!! ENJOY!


1-When did u start dj'n? I started dj'in with two record players i bought from a carboot sale when i was 11 in 1990!

2- What was the first track that made you go oooohhhhhhh? I was a rocker when i was younger.. well into iron maiden but i was first introduced to heavy beats heavy samples and loops in 1989 by means of a track by chad jackson called "hear the drummer get wicked", at the time i had never heard any thing like it and i have never looked back since.

3-First Residency? The wekka in Liverpool! it was an under 18's rave and i was the resident there when i was 14 playin hardcore!

4-What brought u to ibiza? Well i'd been dreaming of djing since i was 11 and i just couldnt settle with normal life i had a "propper" job, nice car ..the works but the calling was too strong one day i remember clocking into work and a feeling of depression coming over me and i just said to noone imparticular.... "funk this..i'm off to ibiza!" i clocked straight back off drove straight to the travel agents and booked my flights for the summer..thankfully it turned out to be the right move!

5-How did the last season go for you? Incredable as well as the amazing new terrace i got to play the main room in amnesia for cream quite a bit, somethin which is just unbelivable it is as good as it looks!! i was also lucky enough to play the mainroom for tiestos collosall gigs..playing on tiestos rig just before him was inspiring he has the best monitors i've ever heard!! my night discobomb also won best workers party at the workers awards so things couldnt of got much better really.

6-What dj's inspire you? I could try and sound cool here and name drop all the new names of the minute but to me if all a dj cares about is makin people feel good with music and they work hard at doin it then they are always gonna be inspiring to me.

7-Moment dj'n that made you stop and think..'Im deadly''?? hmmmm... well at my night discobomb there are no genre boundries so anything goes, i was playing back to back with jamie gittens and he thought it would be funny to drop aggadoo and leave me stood behind the decks with it on whilst fumbling around trying to find a track to quickly get out of it..luckily i was on form and quickly looped aggadoo hit the wide pitch and took it upto a drum and bass tempo and slamed in a wicked d n b track over the top of it...well it absolutly went off!! i kinda turned to jamie and give him a little look that said "top that smart arse!"

8-Favourite shoe? my glow in the dark nikes!

9-Blondes or brunettes?? they both look ace to me....

10-This is first gig in dublin, wat brings you here??? Apart from my girlfriend livin here,wicked nightlife!! wicked crowd!!last time switch played here i was there gettin sweaty with the rest of yous and lovin it! cant wait to play!

11-What track are u dropping at the moment? format b - bootcut..... its a little beast! also my mix of golden girls- kinetic on floorplay.

12-fav new dj's/artists you can recommend etc?? if you havnt allready check hijack for some fat production and if i guy that makes me think about givin up cause he's that good check out youtube clips of kentaro or french team c2c!!

Crafty Beggars Meet the Artists (Gaetan Billault)

Gaetan Billault - 26 - France.

Q: Where are you from?
A: Orleans, France.

Q: Are you studying?
A: No, I studied in France. I did 2 years of Graphic Design, and 2 years of Conception & Creation for my Degree.
Q: How would you describe yourself as an artist?
A: More of a Graphic Designer than an Illustrator, but i think that those two go hand in hand. I incorporate fashion into some of my works also, so id consider myself a Designer.

Q: What kind of style do you have?
A: Naturalistic and organic with a fake naive inspiration.

Q: What do you use for your creations?
A: I try to use everything - Multimedia, textiles, fabric etc etc.

Q: What are your thoughts on the Dublin art scene?
A: I feel like it is getting better, but compared to Paris its so much smaller and slightly behind. It isnt so easy to exhibit your work too. I feel like working as a Graphic Designer i am sometimes limiting myself also, but Dublin is progressing and fast so i am sure in another year things will have changed dramatically.

Q: What can we expect on the night?
A: Small scale drawings, possibly on postcards. I have work displayed at Versus on Smock Alley until Thursday 23rd, so it will be something along those lines.

Q: Peanut Butter or Jelly?
A: Disgusting. Ha.

Q: What do you use for your creations?
A: Gouache, Ink, Computers, Bits & Bobs.

Q: What are your thoughts on the Dublin art scene?
A: I think its developing and inproving quite a lot. Theres many groups of atists and in such a small place, they fast become friends and collaborators.

Mr Jones Presents Fake Blood this Thursday ( 3 Double Passes to give Away )

Who is Fake Blood???

The mystery killer remixer & blog hero Fake Blood reveals his identity (or maybe not) at Mr Jones with a DJ set fueled with more energy & craziness

Fake Blood is already well known in blog land for his roof raising hit 'Mars', and bananas remixes of tunes like Bonde Do Role's 'Marina Gasolina', The Count & Sinden's 'Beeper', Armand Van Helden's 'I Want Your Soul' and South Rakkas Crew 'Mad Again'. Only in the last month or so has he come out from the depths of his studio to start rocking club so we're very happy to have him in Mr Jones' gaff.

"I Got Your Fashion Right Here... "

"I Got Your Fashion Right Here... "

'I Got Your Fashion Right...' Here is a Dublin-based Fashion/Art Collective set up by a current National College of Design Fashion student, Julia Doherty.
The project was set up in July 2008 with the idea to mix Fashion, Fine Art and Performance to create a series of one off shows and exhibitions. Each show/exhibition/fashion farce is worked on a collective basis where every Artist or Designer who takes part helps to form the idea for the night then helps out to create the finished product. The first project undertaken by the collective was a Surrealist fashion show run in conjunction with the Relaunch of Bodytonic's "Mister Jones" night and was a great success. The next project taken on is a collaboration between Fashion Design and Fine Art to see who will win the battle of what is more important- the canvas or the content?

Some Pics Of there Last Gig @ MR JONES

'I Got Your Fashion Right Here...'

'I Got Your Fashion Right Here...' Brings you another installment of Fashion/ Art collaborative Fun. ' I Got Your Fashion Right Here...' is a Fashion based collective headed by current NCAD fashion design student Julia Doherty.

An Exhibition of 6 Pieces will be on display for one night in The Twisted Pepper, Middle Abbey street on the 13th of November under the theme of what is more important-" The Canvas or the Content". Six plain linen dresses were designed and made then distributed to 6 different artists, 4 from within the National College of Art and Design- Aoibheann Greenan, Siobhan Cox, Oisin O'Brien and Eoghan Ryan and then 2 from outside- Kevin Breen and Danni Creed.

Each artist was given free rein to use whatever medium they wanted on the dress and were told to treat it as a canvas, not as an item on clothing. The end results will be displayed in the Twisted Pepper for one night only and as each project undertaken by the Collective is a one-off, it is advisable to get down there and make sure you see them!

Please contact Julia Doherty at 0868965520 for any more details.

First post of the month, and this month is gonna be a big one for Mr.Jones. We've got some big guests lined up in the shape of Fake Blood and Switch, and more of the same in December. 

Continuing on with my little series of interviews, I had a chat with Scottish DJ and producer Hostage. Just signed to the newly launched Nightshifters label, brainchild of DJ Donna Summer, Alan Hostage has been making some big noise recently by way of remixes of OH SNAP!'s tracks "Bill Cosby Sweater" and "High Top Fade" and also his own productions on "Snake Charmer" and Mr.Jones favorite "Hoot".
Expect to hear a lot more from this man during 2009 and the rest of the gang over on Nightshifters. I posted a little thingie here last month about them so be sure to pop back and check it out if you're a little late on things...
In the meantime, Hostage!!!

Shortie: First off, how are you man?
Hostage: Yeah, all is good here if a tad broken after another stupidly good-fun weekend, so I'm in a bed in a hotel room eating a pizza....

S: Nightshifters just launched, exciting times?
H: Yeah, totally excited about Nightshifters, DJ Donna Summer (aka Jason Forrest) is one hard working music loving rave machine of a man, and combined with his vision and the roster of artists I reckon it's going to be a biggie.
We've got remixes of the new Hostage track "Shake it" by AC Slater and the Acid Jacks for the first release, as well as 4 original Hostage tracks...Should all be available to buy very soon.

S: How did it all come about?
H: I've been in contact with DJ Donna Summer for a long time and spent a few days chillin' at his house in Berlin in the summer when I played his amazing rave night "Birthday Party Berlin" - he was keen to get my stuff out there and we get on really well which is important so it's going to be a good fun musical family.

S: Are we going to see a Nightshifters tour anytime soon?
H: Yeah, a Nightshifters tour is defo on the cards.

S: Were you involved in the Scottish DJ scene before you start producing?
H: I've been involved in the Scottish music scene for 10 years under many different guises, however it's Hostage all the way now. But if you look on Discogs you'll see the first Hostage album was released 8 years ago...I have been DJing and Producing for 15 years.

S: Your own tunes like “Hoot” and “Sorry” have a bit of a darker sound to them that your remixes, is that a conscious thing?
H: Yeah, the tunes are sounding darker, I'm feeling a bit darker at the moment, some of the wibbly-wobbly-wonk stuff was starting to sound a bit too much like a day at the funfair so I wanted to make it a bit ruff and darker..

S: Production wise, from where do you draw your influences?
H: Production influences: Scottish Hardcore and Rave from the mid 1990s. The entire spectrum of house and techno from modern deep clicky minimal house stuff to oldschool hoover techno. The Prodigy. Jungle. Dubstep. Altern 8. Hawtin. Bloggyshit....Achh I dunno - I listen to lots of everything.

S: Is there much of a difference between the tracks you make and the tracks you play in a DJ set? If so, Why?
H: I only play mostly my own tracks in my DJ sets.

S: There used to be a bigger link between certain cities and certain sounds, Berlin / Techno, Detroit / House, London / Garage… Not so much anymore, why do you reckon that is?
H: I disagree with you regarding cities having certain sounds.
I think it's still very much that way - from Scouse House to Edinburgh Ravebass.

S: What do you have planned for the future?
H: The future - lots more gigs and a lot more productions: let's just keep working it hard.

Fun Quickfire Qs:

Have you ever been the owner of either a Bill Cosby Sweater or a High Top Fade?
I've had some pretty shitty jumpers in my younger years however a ginger high-top-fade would just be soooo wrong.
Worst tune ever?
The Rednecks - Cotton Eye Joe
Best tune ever?
Randy Crawford - Streetlife (sampled for the breakdown in Gluttony)
Favorite Movie?
Nuts in May or Terminator
Daily websites? 
b3ta. com, erolalkan.co.uk, elbo.ws
What question would you like me to ask you?
What would you like to drink.
Now answer that question
Double Jack Danies with ice.
Random piece of information?
I used to work in a cattle market.

So that's Hostage... Keep an eye out in the usual places for upcoming releases from Nightshifter Records and the man himself.
