Mon.O Boxing Day Banter Bash with Stu Hirst

  • STU HIRST Described by Steve Lawler as "a great songwriter with some fantastic ideas", Stu has received support from much of the A-list DJ fraternity, thanks to an ever-increasing catalogue of tracks and remixes. As a vital part of Lawler's Harlem Records imprint (and now VIVA Recordings), Stu's first release, "Rhythmique" gained numerous plays from Pete Tong on his Essential Selection show, as well as being one of Lawler's closing records in his sets throughout 2005. It was included as the final record of the Lights Out CD Compilation series, released on Global Underground in October 2005 and was also licensed to Moguai's World League compilation. Lawler described it as "a truly amazing record" and charted it at number 3 in his all-time Harlem Nights tracks. Stu has releases forthcoming on labels such as Plastic Fantastic, Fantastic House, VIVA and his own digital-only label, Strawberry Blonde Records. Stu also produces under the name Ourhouse (with Neil Anthony) and Davidson & Hirst (with Neil Davidson), having released on Subversive and Level under these names. Remix wise, Stu has worked for labels such as Deeper Substance (reaching Balance Promote Chart Number One), Limbo, Level (with plays from Jules on Radio One), Climax and Adjust. In 2006, he is remixing artists such as Livio & Roby, Disciples Of Sound and Tim Davison. Stu spent much of 2005 as one of the main A&R reps at Subversive Records. DJ wise, Stu has played at some of the UK and beyond's finest clubs, including appearances at the last three Closing Parties for the mighty Space in Ibiza, Global Club in Lithuania, Amsterdam Dance Conference and many more, including Ministry Of Sound, The Cross, Heaven, Turnmills, Colours, Progression, Do This Do That, Glam, Storm and Inside Out. Other notable successes include winning DJ Magazine's Mix Competition back in 2003 (ahead of thousands of entries) and runner up in I-DJ's Monthly Mix Competition in March 2003. PAUL MORRICE + FLAV are sure to get yer asses movin to the underground sounds of techno, house and da minimal.
