Stealth XV Selections: Matt Tolfrey

The end of April sees the 15th Birthday of Stealth - and to celebrate we have sat down with a number of our residents and regular guests to run through the songs that remind them of their time at the club.

First off we speak to one of our original residents, who went on to release on the likes of Jamie Jones' 'Hot Creations', Damian Lazarus' 'Crosstown Rebels', The Martinez Brothers' 'Cuttin’ Headz', Skream's 'Of Unsound Mind', Radio Slave's 'REKIDS' and his own impressive imprint, 'Leftroom' - it's Matt Tolfrey!

tyolfrey stealth selections

 ----

1. Alter Ego - 'Rocker': This was the ‘original’ anthem of Stealth, and I remember when I managed to get my hands on a promo vinyl of it at Selectadisc in Nottingham.

----

2. Ito & Star - 'Sudoko Kid': One of the biggest tracks I ever signed to my label Leftroom Limited, and still sounds great to this day!!!

----

3. Raudive - 'Here': One of the most mental breakdowns you will ever hear!!!

----

4. Gabriel Ananda - 'Doppelwhipper': 'Relentless driving beats that I played at the club for a very very long time!!!

----

5. John Tejada - 'Sweat (On The Walls)': I think the title of the track says it all!!!

----

6. Matt Tolfrey and Craig Sylvester - 'The Horn': The first record I ever had signed by Damian Lazarus to the mighty Crosstown Rebels. It used to be the anthem of Bugged Out at Stealth back in the day.

----

7. Aphex Twin - 'Windowlicker (Run Jeremy's X-Rated Lick)': The most requested record I ever used to play at the club, so much so I had to buy another copy because my original got worn out!!!

----

8. Mathew Jonson - 'Decompression': Nothing will ever beat the bass in this record. Pushed the Funktion One to their limit!!!

----

9. Derrick L Carter - 'Where Ya At?': One of the most stand out and original vocals you will ever hear in a house record. A genius at work...

----

10. Dave Barker and Brett Johnson - 'Temptations And Lies': This record followed us from The Bomb to Stealth but was the soundtrack to my years spent in Nottingham.

 

----

A big thank-you to Matt for taking the time to run us through his Stealth XV Selections. You can follow Matt's facebook page here, and listen to his most recent releases on his soundcloud page

Five Of The Best: DJ Q

dj q banner purple

On Friday 9th March we welcome back one of the stalwarts of UK Garage, House, Grime & Bassline, and one-third of supergroup TQD (alongside previous Stealth headliners Flava D & Royal T) to Stealth: DJ Q!  

 

And to get you in the mood we asked our resident D'lex from Yeah Yeah & What DJs to select 5 of DJ Q's best productions:

 - - - 

Pick #1: DJ Q - 'Rocky':

"My first pick is unquestionably one of the biggest Bassline tracks of all time. This bootleg samples 'Gonna Fly Now' by Bill Conti, which is most known for being the theme to Slyester Stallone's 70's Boxing film 'Rocky'. After featuring in his sets for close to a decade as an unreleased dubplate, DJ Q's bootleg was  finally released on 12" vinyl by Local Action back in 2015."

- - - 

Pick #2: DJ Q - 'You Wot (featuring MC Bonez)':

"One of DJ Q's instrumental bangers ('Hustling') was pressed up to a self released white label 12" in 2007, backed with a vocal version by MC Bonez. After building up a strong underground following, the track was signed to Ministry Of Sound/Data for a full release. 'You Wot' became one of the first Bassline tracks to hit charts & daytime radio upon it's release back in 2008, and helped spawn the likes of 'The Sound Of Bassline' CD compilations. A decade later the track is still one of the genre's biggest classics." 

 - - - 

Pick #3: DJ Q - '99':

"This is another quality DJ Q bootleg, which dropped a couple of years back as a free download via Fact Magazine & DJ Haus' Unknown To The Unknown. It contains samples from a number of my favourite records - most notibly Dead Dred's Jungle classic 'Dread Bass' and the anthemic UK Garage track 'RIP Groove' by Double 99 - all rolled into one Speed Garage/Bassline club smasher."

- - - 

Pick #4: T Q D - 'Vibesing Ting':

"For me this was the standout track from the debut T Q D (Royal T, DJ Q & Flava D) album 'ukg' - which dropped back in March 2017, and helped soldify the trio's position as one of the most exciting acts in the Bassline/UKG scene."

 - - - 

Pick #5:

S.I.A - 'Little Man' (DJ Q Bootleg):

"S.I.A's 2000 track 'Little Man' was remixed at the time of release by Wookie under his 'Exemen' moniker; which went on to become one of the classics of the UK Garage scene. A decade or so later DJ Q re-worked Wookie's remix, bringing it up to date and it was soon featuring in the sets of the likes of DJ EZ. Check out this link to DJ Q's facebook page for a link to the free download."

DJ Q returns to Stealth on Friday 9th March, alongside Yeah Yeah & What DJs & lots more.
