Sunday 24th January

Three amazing record labels have donated goodie bags of their latest releases:

THE FAMILY IS GROWING ALL THE TIME AND THERE WILL BE NEW AND AMAZING DJ'S, ARTISTS AND OTHER CULTURAL CONTRIBUTORS ADDED TO THE LINE-UP AS SOON AS THEY ARE CONFIRMED
Donations will be taken at the door and ALL proceeds will go directly to the Tribe Oxfam Haiti Appeal
Please help the people of Haiti by spreading the word and coming out to support this event - the devastation and despair in this desperately poor country has been horrifying to witness but by giving up your sunday evening and surrounding yourself with like minded compassionate people we can try and bring some small respite.
Oxfam's long-term work in Haiti means that staff are already there - teams across the region are responding to the situation where the need is most urgent. Oxfam's emergency response will include providing clean water, sanitation and shelter.
Thank you to everyone involved

Producer, Dj & Hyperdub Rec. boss Kode 9 aka Steve Goodman has just released his book Sonic Warfare : Sound, Affect And The Ecology Of Fear... Résumé taken from
Steve explores how sound can be deployed to produce discomfort, express a threat, or create an ambience of fear or dread--to produce a bad vibe. At the same time, artists and musicians generate intense frequencies in the search for new aesthetic experiences and new ways of mobilizing bodies in rhythm. In Sonic Warfare, Steve Goodman explores these uses of acoustic force and how they affect populations. Most theoretical discussions of sound and music cultures in relationship to power, Goodman argues, have a missing dimension: the politics of frequency.
Goodman supplies this by drawing a speculative diagram of sonic forces, investigating the deployment of sound systems in the modulation of affect. Traversing philosophy, science, fiction, aesthetics, and popular culture, he maps a (dis)continuum of vibrational force, encompassing police and military research into acoustic means of crowd control, the corporate deployment of sonic branding, and the intense sonic encounters of sound art and music culture. Goodman concludes with speculations on the not yet heard--the concept of unsound, which relates to both the peripheries of auditory perception and the unactualized nexus of rhythms and frequencies within audible bandwidths.
