Shitmat (Planet Mu / Wrong Music)
The King of Mashcore returns to Bristol for yet another journey through the sounds of mashed up gabba rave hardcore Shitmat style.
Binray (Zod Records / Werk Discs)
Binray started out with a traditional analogue plus Atari setup thru a guitar amp in a cow shed in Devon, cutting up breaks and various plants as well as attacking kitchenware and farm machinery. After a stint of djing electronics and drum'n'bass around Bristol, he dropped out of the beatmatching loop, and spent a year away from the UK. Things got exciting upon his return, giving up his freedom and buying a proper computer in 2000 .Tuning into the interweb frequencies he got sucked into the code and playful chaos vortex areas of sound. Binray applies a nondiscrimatory policy to all sound, everything can be recycled and used however rubbish it might seem at first. A favourite moment is when highly ordered synthetic strucures are broken apart releasing energy and, as in explosive chemicals, (an earlier interest)."
Kilka Serco (ex Fruit of the Doom / Blast Furnace/ R-Logic)
A Brutally detuned and discharged onslaught of Sludgestep death-mental, shifting from blastbeat to breakbeat in the flick of a drumstick. Over layered with dark industrial sounds, gritty rhymes and guttural screams, Kilka Serco will rip you a new K-Hole.
Parasite (Death$ucker / Peace Off)
Parasite is the owner of the Death$ucker label and the fantastic online electronic music shop DSWAT.net. As Parasite he makes some brilliantly twisted ragga jungle that manages to sound extremely dark and yet incredibly funky at the same time. Check out his releases on Peace Off and Damage as well as what Death$ucker back catalogue you can get your hands on.
Anakissed (Death$ucker / plugincinema.com)
Death$ucker's VJ in residence and founder of the internet filmmaking website plugincinema.com. Performing a mish-mash-up of politically charged images and low-fi cinema, and pushing the realms of the visual jockey further are her trademark. She has accompanied Venetian Snares, The Bug, Soundmurderer and DJ Scud at the notorious Toxic Dancehall events in Bristol.
Gusset have been scaring friends and punters alike since 1996, unleashing aural assaults at breakcore, techno and hip-hop nights around the city. Not to mention anywhere else that will have them, from Brighton to Madrid. They don't fit comfortably into any nice little pigeon hole and have a sound all of their own, but strangely no imitators. After a promising but stalled start as a low-fi Amiga 1200 toting indie band that made Portishead sound like the theme from My Little Pony, they regrouped and concentrated on a purely electronic offering. Their break came in 2002 when Death$ucker head-honcho Parasite booked them to support Fanny and Venetian Snares on board the good ship Thekla (the floating venue brought to Bristol by Vivian Stanshall as the Old Verity Showboat). Since then they have jumped at the opportunity to support any act their name sounds funny next to. They have a new CD coming out in November 2007 on Death$ucker Records with a bunch of their new tracks and remixes by Planet Mu's Shitmat and The Teknoist, Cock Rock Disco's Jason Forrest, Manchester's king of mash-up Hoonboy, V/Vm's hardoff (aka M-Pi), Parasite and Zod's Binray.
Jay Nom (Death$ucker)
Jay Nom is resident at the GoatLab parties, and can be heard out and about Bristol spinning some of the sickest dancefloor breakcore, ragga jungle and evil drum and bass around. His deck skills are worthy of the finest!
Ironside (P.R.A.N.K / Bashout)
One of Bristol finest DJs and GoatLab resident, spinning anything from easy listening reggae bashment to 200 bpm jungle breakcore.
Misoh (Get Raised / Donuts)
Misoh is the founder of Get Raised, a charity fundraiser night @ the Black Swan, where each one has raised over £2000.00 for kiddies in need! She also promotes a night called Hoedown, Bash! with The Bug & Loefah here in Bristol, and is resident DJ @ the H.E.N.C.H dubstep nights.
Dub Boy (Ruffnek Diskotek)
DJ Dub Boy is a Bristol based DJ (and co-promoter of Ruffnek Diskotek) currently playing a variety of sound-system musics aimed squarely at getting waists winding on the dancefloor. Over the last few years Dub Boy has blazed a trail on the Bristol club scene and beyond helping re-ignite Bristol's underground bass driven music scene. Playing what he has coined "Forward Thinking Bashment", Dub Boy is only confined by his mantra of spinning "riddim and bass".
The Juxtaposeur (Eclectic Kettle / West of Bastard)
The Juxtaposeur is co-promoter of Eclectic Kettle and co-founder of West Of Bastard, the first ever night dedicated to bootlegs & mash up in the West Country! He runs a monthly internet radio show Skip To The End, which won Podcast of the Month with Parasite on Beat-Boot-Ique in September! His next show in 25th October features Kid Carpet.

D$R26: Electromeca - Brutal Funk EP - 12"
Since he discovered that FM-radio could sound way much better through his SP202, Electromeca didn't stop to cut-crush-distort-chop-chew-spit-reconstruct fat & dirty beats with a delicious guilty pleasure. That's it: James Brown driving a bulldozer through a wrecking yard, hectic B-Boys breakdancing in a puddle of motor oil, The Bomb Squad meets Russolo in a Z-movie disco-club, FM-radio harshbeats, dismantled stuttering beat-box, muddy boom-bap... Basically: hard & heavily damaged club music!
D$R24 DJ Floorclearer - Goat Slaughterer EP - 12"
Floorclearer spews his latest 4 track 12" all over your face in large, meaty chunks. You may remember him from such record labels as Death$ucker, Wrong Music and his very own Proboscus Records where he demonstrated his ability to sink breakcore balls deep, right into your cranium. After spending a lot of time touring and rinsing it out everywhere from Krakow to Newcastle and performing at Wasted, Breakcore Gives Me Wood, GoatLab and Overkill he's finally found time to teleport some music at you at a high dangerously velocity. "Goat Slaughterer" mixes up new style drum n bass, Slayer, mosh breaks and punk guitars in DJ Floorclearer's unique style. This is the perfect antidote to a world full of gang violence, global warming, war and Noel Edmonds.Tracklisting:

In other Death$ucker news I had a chat with Armin over the weekend and we've finally slated a release date for the Gusset remix album that was now been THREE YEARS in the making. This September you will see a bargain priced CD of remixes from Gusset's Skidmark CD-R release (last few left on dSWAT). Ask Dr Kim – clever anagram, see? – will feature remixes from The Teknoist, Shitmat, Jason Forrest, Parasite, Binary, Atki2, hard.off, m||m, Hoonboy, Twocsinak and more!
We gave up on the slutty nurse photoshoot idea due to budget restrictions (ie, £0). So instead we will be making a collage of gusset photos. Please send photos of your gusset to: gusset[at]gmail.com. You don’t have to be wearing the item, just pose your pants and snap away. Photos will be used under a CC licence and you will get a credit in the artwork. You won't get paid mind, but you get the satisfaction of being able to point and say;
"Check this; that's my gusset on that album cover."
"Get away!" your friends will say.
"No really, look, my name’s on the 'thanks' inside, here," points.
"You magnificent bastard!" they will declare...
Submission deadline is 1st September 2007!!!

Title: Bone Structure
Release Date: 7/05/07
Get Bone Structure @ DSWAT.net!!!
Acrnym is 21-year-old Calum Gunn from Glasgow in Scotland. He's been making noises with computers since about 1995 or something, but finally took it seriously in 2004. He's had 2 CDR releases on Bad Boxr and 2 digital download EP's on the NorthAmericanHardcore net label: NAHC087 and NAHC066, and has just signed a deal with Sublight Records of Canada to release a full-length CD album due out in April 2007, and a 12" on Bong-Ra's Kriss Records later this year! This is his first vinyl release!

Title: Sonic Weapons EP
Release Date: 7/05/07
Get Sonic Weapons EP @ DSWAT.net!!!
DJ C continues to drop his mashed up mix of hip-hop, bashment, grime, bounce, jungle, rock, folk, bhangra, dub-step and just about everything else at parties, clubs, and events worldwide.
In 2003 he began the Mashit record label with a 12-inch featuring one of his rough-and-rugged-ragga tracks along-side an Aaron Spectre remix. It sold out within weeks of it's release. The next 5 Mashit 12-inches also featured DJ C material, and they've been killing dance-floors and airwaves across the globe. Legendary BBC Radio One host John Peel (R.I.P.) chose Mashit as a "label of the month" in October 2004. The records have also been receiving airplay on other BBC shows, in addition to shows on London's Resonance FM, and Ninja Tune's syndicated Solid Steel show.
He's been hard at work producing beats and remixes for other labels as well. His mix of the M.I.A. tune U.R.A.Q.T., was released on her Galang '05 single by XL Recordings, and his mixes of the tune Gone A Jail, by reggae legend Gregory Isaacs, were recently released on Kid 606's Tigerbeat6 sub-label Shockout.
His last release for Death$ucker (DSR14) was a solid 3 track EP of what can only be discribed as "Boston-bounce", a style pioneered by DJ C himself. His latest 12-inch features some tracks from the vault and a few new joints.
On the A side we have "Who Wah Seek Yo"; the infamous, until now unreleased bluegrass-core tune, with it's killer banjo licks. Following that is LXC's remix of the same tune, taking crystal clean drum & bass and giving the hillbilly treatment.
On the B side "Come Back Version" is another track from the DJ C vaults, this time cutting up jungle beats with large doses of reggae and dancehall thrown in for good measure. "Gi Mi Di Break" is a short track which would work well as a DJ tool. "It Gets Worse" is a bass-heavy downtempo number, delving into the murky dubstep genre, and features the world-renowned thereminist Pamelia Kurstin.
Cut in the UK for maximum dance floor pressure!

More about LXC:
LXC is the man when it comes to hardcore drum'n'bass and weird electronics. Hailing from Leipzig, Germany, he started making electronic music back in 1993 and has since made it to release tracks on labels such as Phantomnoise and Santorin. In 2003, his Alphacut Records imprint took off, hittin you with extreme d&b, breakcore, idm and further trash.
Title: Ravecore Anthems
Cat: DSR25 / VROCK012
Release Date: 7/05/07
Get Ravecore Anthems @ DSWAT.net!!!
Pisstank has been releasing tracks since 1999, firstly Amiga-core fury for labels like Kool.Pop, 555 Recordings and Wabana.Ore. After taking a break for a few years to run the fantastic Irritant Records label (whose release roster has included the talents of Knifehandchop, Donna Summer, Kid606, DJ Scud, Hecate and many more) where he was supposed to release "Drunk on Cock", which then morphed into "Very Pleasure" by our main man Duran Duran Duran. But in addition to running this most fantastic of record labels, he also made extreme breakcore nosie shit for years and years before that. He returns in 2007 with a new line in ravecore.
On the A side "Punching" delivers a solid ravecore anthem, melting happy hardcore with gabber kicks and amen licks. Lightas at the ready…this one has been ripping up dancefloors on dubplate for a year now, and finally gets unleashed on the world. On the flip we get "Fucked", a classic slice of breakcore mashup, blending synthy rave stabs with tight vocals and even a bit of klesmar thrown in for good measure. But wait, the party isn't over yet, there's still "Bassbins"; an anthem so damn heavy you won't know what's hit you. This one must be heard to be believed!!!
This is a joint release with Jason Forrest's world renowned Cock Rock Disco label. Cut in the UK for maximum dance floor pressure!

a BIG THANK YOU to all who played and raved and especially my fellow goat-herders in arms Ana and Tom...it was a team effort, without you GOATLAB wouldn't be possible!! Well done!!!
The atmosphere was electric with smiles all round, and great music from everyone who played! Geisha were hard-to-the-core, Cdatakill was insane with his crazed beats (i think the crowd were a little bit confused at times ). Soundbites held the crowd for his whole set, and like he said he wouldn't touch his laptop throughout his entire set, just using his Wii controller!!!). Microphyst made a blinding debut! Hoonboy was fast and furios, and Blam got the mosh pit going!! Anakissed blew us away with her visuals and Gusset's back room 7" set was hilarious the front room was having with Nim Chimpski warming up, Punksi on the gypsy vibe, Jay Nom smashed it once again, Dub Boy and Ironside murdered it, and my little bro Dj Ruk finished things off nicely! and not to forget Descend, his set in the back room was eclectic and his drapes made Tb2 look goatastic!!
here are some blurry photos i took on the night...we'll put some of the live sets up on www.goatlab.com next week!
