A little over a week after the success of making good with the amazing Horse Meat Disco guys, PICNIC is back on the party express with the latest installment of our WAREHOUSE WONDERLAND...
Just how do you follow someone as amazing as THE REVENGE?
We've set ourselves on course with Belgian producer and deep-house wunderkind *MUGWUMP* aka KOLOMBO (Gigolo/Turbo/Kompakt/Cocoon) with Simon Caldwell, Spruce Lee, Vinyl Ritchie, Kali and Disco Not Disco holding it down from 4pm til Midnight in our super-disco-phonic-sound equipped warehouse.
It's super fun for young and old - bring your own or get looked after Picnic style.
Olivier Grégoire aka Mugwump hails from the city of Namur (Belgium) where’s he’s been honing his DJ and production skills and is one of few producers who’s successfully straddled big room party sounds AND caught the attention of underground music heads.
His music is equally at home on huge labels such as King Kong records (Sharam Jey's label) with his partner Djerom under the name Loulou Players as it is on Marc Romboy’s almighty Systematic label – where he’s released under is real name.
And no-one could forget the Kolombo stuff. Yep, that’s Olivier too. From remixing The Presets “Anywhere” to originals on Turbo, Jackmoves, Kompakt, Giant Wheel and (unbelievably) even more labels to make you blush…
And then we have the Mugwump project! OMG! Under this deeper pseudonym he has released music on a dream list of labels, all dedicated to good music, still squarely aimed at the dancing floor!
Where do we begin?
Ewan Pearsons’s Misericord label? check. Hi-Phen? check. Suicide? Check. Sasse’s killer Mood Music? Check. Rob Mello’s excellent Disco 45 label? Check. What about the label to end all labels, Kompakt? Der, haven’t you heard the tech house track of year – “Fears”? Looks like we’ve got a double check there.
And our man’s not letting up… he has tracks and remixes in the pipe-line for Cocoon, R&S, Gigolo, Eskimo and is popping up again on Kompakt.
Mugwump remains always faithful to one big and simple idea: fusion. More specifically, these days Mugwump fuses disco aesthetics with modern techno leanings in what's starting to be the sound giving guts to the “nu-disco” movement.
Dj's support comes thick and fast for the Mugwump sound! Sven Vath, DJ Naughty, Ivan Smagghe, Pete Herbert, Ewan Pearson, Sasha, Rob Mello, The Glimmers, Mike Monday, Jef K, Chris Duckenfield, Steve Kotey, Damian Lazarus, MANDY, Kiki, Serge (Clone) or more recently Andy Weatherall, Peter Kruder, Michaël Mayer, Dubfire, Mr Scruff, Aeroplane & Mark E, to name but a few.
