Greg Wilson at Stealth!

We thought it was about time to throw a Disco & Funk Special - and who better to join us than the legendary GREG WILSON!

Greg Wilson began DJing in 1975 and is regarded as one of the most important figures on the UK dance scene. He was a pioneer of mixing in the UK, and in the early 1980s enjoyed hugely popular residencies at some of the UK's finest clubs - including 'The Haçienda', 'Wigan Pier' and 'Legend'. Greg soon became known for breaking the new electronic, post-disco records coming out of New York, a sound he has dubbed ‘Electro-Funk’.

Greg was the first DJ to mix live on British TV (The Tube in 1983), and here is some of the footage:

We've started asking the guys and gals that come play here at Stealth to do us a solid and help out with a little After Stealth playlist we're building. Those tracks that are ideal for the after party, bus ride home or just lying in bed trying to sleep.

We'll share those selections here and build a Spotify playlist for y'all to bump at home or on the move.

We start with some picks from Redlight who recently played a sold out Lobster Boy Showcase alongside Mak & Pasteman, Mella and Nyta

Friend Within - Stealth Residency Launch

FWResidency

Friend Within: ** THERE’S A PRETTY COOL ANNOUNCEMENT AT THE END OF THIS LONG POST SO DO STICK WITH IT! **

Someone mentioned me in a tweet the other day asking does one of my sets consist of me playing The Renegade on repeat for 2 hours? After laughing for 5 minutes I then saw the opportunity ahead of me – there are still people who know my music but haven’t seen me DJ.

Now I’m not claiming to be the best DJ in the world, but I do like to think that those that have heard me play know that I’m more than just a producer that got a few gigs off the back of some tunes.

When I started making tunes as Friend Within I kept my identity a secret and let the music speak for itself. Pretty much everyone who heard that music could tell that I have production experience though; I wasn’t just a youngster that got lucky. I was exceedingly happy with this and I’d like to think I started to prove myself when I got behind the decks too. Yes I got booked because I got signed to labels like Dirtybird, Hypercolour and Pets, but I got re-booked because I knew how to DJ to a room of people. I hope I’m not coming across as big-headed here; I’m really trying not too!

I’ve been DJing since 1998 and I’m so glad that I started at that time and not now. In order to get gigs back then you actually had to be good, the term ‘DJ / producer’ didn’t exist. I got involved with a few local club nights and eventually got a couple of residencies. I was so chuffed! I made some friends for life and even met my wife at one of these residencies.

I was thinking about some of my favourite DJs recently and I realised that the main reason they were was down to the fact they held residencies at club nights I would go to regularly. Paul Woolford, Steve Lawler, Yousef, Craig Richards, Erol Alkan. There’s nothing quite like hearing a DJ go to work on a dancefloor he or she is totally familiar with.

Some of the best times I’ve had DJing have been from when I have been a resident. I held residencies at Ministry of Sound, Mint Club in Leeds, Ibiza plus a few smaller ones. They’ve been warm-up sets; peak time sets and early in the morning sets. It’s such a privilege to be able to play repeatedly at a club and get to know the crowd, get to know the sound system, get to know the people behind the scenes and get confident in the music you’re playing.

Anyway that’s enough of the past; let’s bring this more up to date. Recently there has been one club that I have had the honour of playing at multiple times over the past 3 years as Friend Within - Stealth in Nottingham. It’s one of my favourite clubs anywhere in the world. The crowd is always on-point, as is the sound system and all the production. It’s given me a new taste of what it’s like to step into a familiar DJ booth and know which ways you can take a crowd. It got me thinking about the good times I had when being a resident DJ.

So….

That leads me on to the wonderful announcement I will officially be starting a residency at Stealth! I told you the post was worth reading. I’ll be starting on Friday 5th February and will be back every month to play all night long each time. This gets me rather excited!

So if you want to know if one of my sets consists of me playing 2 hours of The Renegade then come along. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised, I’m actually pretty good :) 

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

Stealth: "Friend Within is an artist who has played at our events under a number of different guises over the years, and is one of the most versatile DJ/producers we work with. Over the last 7 years he's performed several times across both rooms of Stealth, as well as headlining shows at Rock City - and has delivered each and every time. His productions are some of the most regularly heard tracks on our dance floors, and his unique sound is one that has become synonymous with the club for many of our customers. As a DJ he is equally comfortable playing for 90 minutes or over 5 hours, and when discussing the idea of bringing in a guest resident for the club for 2016, Friend Within was an obvious choice. We are excited to announce that on Friday 5th February we welcome Friend Within for a special 'Residency Launch' party, which will be followed by regular shows at Stealth throughout 2016."

Resident Update: Stealth Resident Latmun’s EP Release on VIVa LIMITED

VIVALTD053

Latmun is a 23 year old DJ & producer from our home here in Nottingham, proudly representing the city’s upcoming talent, where he has been a resident DJ and member of our team at Stealth for four years strong. 

Latmun has already featured on BBC Radio 1’s world famous Essential Mix radio show, where his productions have been played by VIVa Music’s Denney- who produced arguably one of 2015’s biggest tech house tracks ‘Low Frequency’. Not only that, but Latmun’s music has featured on Rinse FM and has had the support of Detlef and VIVa Music founder and tech house heavyweight Steve Lawler. 

His track ‘Who’s That’ featured on Detlef’s mix for the ‘VIVa Warriors Season 4’ mix compilation where it found support from some of the most respectable artists in the scene and became one of the best selling tracks to be released on VIVa Music in 2015.

Demonstrating his strong work ethic, it’s true that dedication, patience and hard work are still the key to success, and we are proud to inform you of Latmun’s new EP release on VIVa LIMITED, containing six infectious, high energy tracks that will be heard from DJ booths across the world. With an unmistakably captivating style and taste in music, Latmun’s future is a promising one, and has shown great skill in his ability to read the crowd – whether playing a warm up set or taking the reins in the main room. Showing no signs of slowing down, this year can only be more exciting for Latmun than the last, and it’s evident enough that his career is only just beginning. 

“This EP was created with the intention that each track would serve its own unique purpose on the dance floor. A mix of peak time bombs, rolling synth ridden tools, and 4am dark terrace suited tracks with close attention paid to the groove.” - Latmun
