Melting Pot and Rizla Invisible Players:
Anyone attending the summer festivals: “Rockness”, “The Big Chill” and “Bestival” will have noticed the marauding entity that is the Rizla Invisible Players. Performing from the 1920s travelling music van, a Funktion One soundsystem and an array of deckchairs, the likes of Jazzie B, Tim Sweeney, JD Twitch, Andrew Weatherall, Jon Carter and many more uber talented DJs, brought their own unique vibe to the events. The summer is over, but The Rizla Invisible Players are hooking up with Melting Pot to bring together a phenomenal line up over 2 floors to bring 2009 to a close with a bang.
Eric Duncan (Rub N Tug / Still Going / NYC):
Native New Yorker Eric Duncan is one half of the fantastic Rub N Tug duo, and also on DFA as Still Going with partner Liv Spencer of House of House fame. He’s also been curating the excellent Japanese based C.O.M.B.i. re-edit label, and when he’s got the time branching out solo style with some quite stunning pieces of music as Dr Dunks on the ludicrously rare Whatever We Want label. Phew!
Eric’s attitude to DJing? “I’m halfway out there with the party people, drinking and shouting just as everyone else at the party”.
Expect to be entertained!

Mark E (Merc / Jiscomusic):
Melting Pot welcome back man of the moment - Mark E. Renowned for his reworking of disco and boogie classics such as Bobby Womack’s “Baby, I’m scared of you” and Tata Vega’s “Get it up for Love”, on the Jiscomusic label. Mark has gone from strength to strength in 2009 with the launching of his Merc records imprint that have been getting emphatic reviews. Mark is not only “completely on fire at the moment in the studio” (piccadillyrecords.com), but for those who witnessed his performance at Melting Pot’s New Year party, he’s also on fire playing out!
For more info on Mark E:
JD Twitch is one of the two DJs who founded “Optimo” and was a resident at the seminal “Pure” night in Edinburgh.
A man who needs no introduction in his home town of Glasgow, Twitch has a history of creating mayhem on the Melting Pot dance floor, so we can expect more of the same.
More info on JD Twitch:
Having established an excellent reputation on the back of their highly popular Dundee club night, the Autodisco DJs have continued to enhanced their profile over the last few years with some top performances in the Rizla Arena at Rockness, in the Stonebridge Tent at Glastonbury, and have earned themselves a monthly residency in London at The Social along the way.
The distinctive Autodisco sound which fuses Disco, Electro Funk, House and a Balearic anything goes attitude has also led to guest mix slots for BBC Radio 1 as well as heavily downloaded internet mixes on respected sites like Another Night On Earth and Juno Download.
