Appleblim down the pub!



Though of you based in London (or, at the least, unafraid of travel) are cordially invited to join us for the last ever Washing Line party at The Constitution in Camden, on Saturday 2nd August. Our special guest for the evening is none other than Laurie Osborne, aka Appleblim.


I can't believe we've got Laurie playing in a 60-capacity boozer in Camden. But sure enough, we have.

Along with Shackleton, Appleblim is co-founder of Skull Disco - without doubt one of the most important and innovative labels to emerge in recent years. It came to prominence on the back of dubstep, but Shack and 'Blim (ahem)'s distinctive sound has always defied such easy categorization, its aims far higher and energies far greater than the wobbly bass bollocks which the 'd' word has come to denote.

Since then, Appleblim has released a string of envelope-pushing singles ('Vansan', in particular), and founded a new label, Apple Pips, with the express intention of exploring the fertile grey areas between house, dubstep, techno and garage.

Still, Laurie's roots in dubstep are pretty fucking significant: he's a former resident at the era-defining FWD>>, and regular a contributor to Rinse FM - his most recent podcast for the station is the best 2 hours of music I've heard this year - repping bleeding edge techno and dubstep alongside vintage beauts from Alice Coltrane, Mr Fingers and even (gulp) Davy Graham. You can download the mix here:

Appleblim - April podcast [Rinse FM]Dubstep Allstars Volume 6, following in the footsteps of such luminaries as Youngsta and Kode 9. He's also just produced a sterling mix for Resident Advisor's renowned podcast series. Download it at http://www.residentadvisor.net, where you can also read Carnage's interview with him.

In short, Appleblim is, for me at least, the most interesting and engaging DJ at work on God's earth right now. Seriously. I get out of bed in the morning just to listen to the fucker's Rinse mix. So I'm VERY happy for him to dignify The Washing Line with his presence, especially given as his last UK show was at frickin' Fabric...

Joining Appleblim will be a very special live guest TBA, plus a name some of you will be familiar with: Mr RICHARD CARNAGE. Carnage is the driving force behind the TAPE clubnight and blog, and thanks to his good work and good taste they've both earned a wodge of international acclaim over the years. An infallibly shit-hot DJ of discerning club music of all stripes and shades - from house and techno to dubstep and garage via disco, italo and electro - Carnage is, quite frankly, your man.

Myself and Lazerboy will provide the cherry on the funeral cake with our usual slipshod mix of disco, post-punk and dubby business. Yes!

As usual, it all goes down in the cellar bar of The Constitution - an impossibly intimate lockside boozer in Camden. The basement opens out onto the most tranquil, beautiful part of the lock, and the venue boasts not one but TWO of the best smoking areas in all of Christendom. Seriously. The drinks are good, the locals are weird, the sound is raw. What more do you people want?

All of you who've attended The Washing Line should need no encouragement to join us for our swansong. Those of you who've never been - well, it's your last chance, intit?

right. see you there.
