Cruising out of one year, and smashing through the perimeter fence of the next.

’013, the odd one.

It’s been a year that’s had Holic Trax go from length to strength
through releases from Rick Wade, Dan Curtin, Doublet and Mr.G.
A year that’s seen Holic maintain her tradition of hosting sweaty soirees of house.
With or without the big names it’s simply remained one muthafxxkn thang —


Celebrating NYE in the two room facility of 1001: that ole East London stalwart equipped with Funktion One sound and fresh pulped orange juice.

For this night,
Holic welcomes Panorama Bar’s own Oliver Deutschmann to the fold, to ensure that the new year is inaugurated — with the proverbial shutters opened — to some crisp winter’s blue.

Also in on the act is Dan Curtin, a Bass Culture alumni who got an F last semester, for filling the floor with firm, fornicating funk. Fantastically.

These heavyweighters are of course joined by Holic lynchpin Tomoki Tamura, and his fixers in Lookleft and Eightbitrate. Rounding out the bill are a slew of London’s own though, handpicked by the long arm of HOLIC, dishin out damage till the early moan.

Tough in the back room till 10 //
Hip-hop, funk, what have you in the front till 6.

Peace be with xx

“HOLIC is the future.” —Kubrick
But nothing brings about the future quite like the past.

Autumn leaves & rose tinted hooch on the riverbank.
Salmon pinks & cerulean hues.
Vibin’ within the London night sky.

But $#!+
‘T was them teeth-shattering times of raw House Music at Cafe 1001.
That dance floor spliff beneath the Funktion Ones. Them were the days.

So this 30 Nov. HOLIC party is back at Cafe 1001 on Brick Lane!

After a mutual break-up that saw HOLIC scope out the personalities (natural breasts) of other East London venues, we’re back up in it.
HOLIC sure missed those bouncing Brick Lane Double Gs.

For the last night in November — wake up in December — having seen…….

Love Fever bustin’ out the blush,
Miles Simpson of Thunder throwing down his PhD in vinyl junkism,
the return of Lookleft + Bearight,
hot new French house property Nummer,
the fantastically named Dudley Strangeways,
of course the Godfather Tom Tam
+ a whole host of otherworldly soundscapers.

*Liquor in the front,
Poker in the rear.
Slowmo House / Disco Funk front room
The dog house out back

Don’t be a letdown.. get down.
It’s HOLIC Biaxxh © xx

Mr.G / A G Moment EP out now in all good record shops!


HT008 / Mr.G “A G Moment EP”
Oct 2013 29

He’s back! 18 months have passed since he helped Holic Trax launch with the evergreen ‘Danceaholics’ EP, Mr G returns to Tomoki Tamura’s label with another session of insatiable tech soul. 
One of the most venerated men in techno, Colin McBean paints from a strictly timeless sound palette. Refusing to kowtow to any trends or fads, both he and his collection of analogue hardware have remained highly relevant and well respected for almost 15 years. Naturally this latest EP is no exception.
We kick off with ‘A G Moment’. Strutting with Detroitian distinction, the groove is awash with thick woozy chords. Instantly captivating, they set the foundations for the dual vocal trickery that follows as the lead loop is complemented by swooning ‘oohs’ in the background. Undiluted galvanised soul, it’s G at his most playful and sonically seductive.
‘So Get Down’ follows with percussive panache. A forthright fusion of thundering kicks and rolling bongos, we’re soon introduced to a cheeky snippet of a very well-known vocal. Guaranteeing that your floor will ride on time, every time, the beautiful simplicity and solidity of this is matchless.
A firing funk finale, ‘Whant It’ closes the show. Swaggering with full flavoured drum dynamics, Mr G’s trademark hip-shaking infectiousness is in full effect. With just enough space in the swinging rhythm to introduce a sexy, purring vocal and icy star-gazing pads, it’s yet another sensuous showdown.
Another sweat-inducing session from Holic Trax and another exemplary exercise in classic contemporary techno from M G: have yourself ‘A G Moment’ today.

Many moons ago…

A young boy Tomoki is left spellbound by the old masters of 4×4. Listening from a distance he is suffused with deep rhythmic splendour and witnesses lightning strike the dancefloor — splitting it clean and evenly in two halves. On one side comes to rest a shimmering mass of economic robotony, now placid in its shortage of natural resource. Crashing down on the other are the restless remains of past fervour, sensitive flesh yearning for fresh adventure.

Seeing this break — his path forever changed — Tomoki is inspired to harness the raw power of House.

He enrols at Holborn institution The End, excelling at audio alchemy, and as a student there, bottles bass-heavy blends under the name Holic. Some short years later, pursuing a doctorate at WOMB Tokyo he develops his most contagious product — a highly viscous melodic tonic known as Holic Trax Juinchi. Meticulously he fuses these colourful compounds and in doing so, develops a secret technique that imbues inanimate bodies with life.

With Holic as a makeshift lab, these loose limbs become Deepensteins of the Pranet Clunk.

On Saturday 26 October, with an enriched formula and a team of leading scientists, Tomoki and his colleagues perform this controversial practice at The Victorian Vaults on Funktion One sound. It’s Halloween in London and nobody’s left untouched…..

Yup, that’s right get ya ghoul on! It’s Halloween biaxxh
