Moskow Diskow are delighted to announce a Christmas Party edition, with our close friend and mainstay of the Moskow Diskow dance floor: gwEm.
Expect to hear the no holds barred floor filling sounds of 8-bit, micromusic, electro, rave, old skool, dub-step, hip hop, and jungle all churned into a melting pot of musical mayhem by this protagonist of the perfect beat.
gwEm is fresh from recent gigs in New York and Japan as part of his 8-bit micromusic collaboration with Counter Reset. Check their cover of The Man-Machine (Die Mensch-Maschine) by Kraftwerk on Astralwerks' 8-bit Operators Compilation. Tonight he will be turning their hand to the turntables, though his talents don't end there so expect some additional Nintendo DS 8-bit action.
On top of that we've got Meschi, stalwart of the italo/disco/electo scene and Apiento, who will be taking a break from his music bunker, where he's been holed up crafting a whole new genre of music based on the workings of Jam and Lewis, Compass Point and Prince...
gwEm describes himself as an "Atari ST Old Skool Rave DJ and Heavy Metal dude" which succinctly describes his mad scientist formula of 8bit, hardcore rave and driving hard rock guitar which has seen success on Berlin's Shitkatapult and Muller records, his own London based label preromanbritain, and net community Micromusic.
gwEm is also known for his Atari ST chiptune virtuosity, as demonstrated on his ground breaking Atari ST music disk, 'The Phatt Demo', and with the renowned 'YM Rockerz' crew.
MESCHI (Dream Machine / ISM / RobotDJ.net)
Located in London UK, Meschi appears to operate on the fringes of the local scene. He's seemingly ever present but purposefully chooses to keep a low profile. His vast knowledge covers the wide range of all music including, but not exclusive to; avant-garde Rock, Ambient noises, deep Techno and wonky Electro. But in the end, genres are of little consequence as he puts together refreshing mixes which hold the highest musical pedigrees. - www.MPIII.com

Apiento had been making music for years, under many guises, including a spell doing production for M.I.A. He'll rinsing out some classic dancing tunes from one of the best (and neatest) record collections around.
