* Wich was your first experience into the mod/R&B/Soul scene? If it was a club, wich one was it?

My first memory of a Mod party was one night after a birthday party that we went to a club in the suburbs of Valencia. The first impression was when watching some mods in white shoes, smart shirts and dancing some afroamerican rhythms, it was like being Soho in ’63. Years later some of those mods became friends and some very close friends.

Mi primer recuerdo es asistir a una fiesta en las afueras de Valencia después de un cumpleaños. La imagen que me quedó fue como estar en un club del Soho en 1963, y yo viendo a un gran número de mods con zapatos blancos, camisas elegantes y todos bailando ritmos negros. Con el tiempo algunos se convirtieron en amigos y otros en grandes amigos.

* Tell us about a DJ that infuenced or made an impact on you.

I’ve always preferred DJ’s that don’t go to obvious tracks and are capable to discover new songs and then you feel the need of asking what’s the name of that gem. If I had to say one name that will be Roger Banks.

Siempre me han interesado los dj’s que arriesgan y de los que descubres temas nuevos y no tienes más remedio que dirigirte a la cabina para averiguar cómo se llama esa maravilla que está sonando. Por nombrar a alguien mítico diría el nombre de Roger Banks.

* Wich is your main aim or interest when playing your records?

When I play records I’m always watching people on the dancefloor. I try to to know their likes so if I have to continue with what I’m playing or I have to change to another sound. To me the more important thing is that people enjoy dancing, that’s the point.

Cuando pongo discos en algún local mi vista está en la pista de baile. Intento valorar la respuesta de la gente que está bailando para seguir pinchando ese palo o cambiarlo. Para mí lo más importante es que la gente baile, nada más y nada menos.

* 3 favourite records? What do they mean for you?

Billy Hawks – Heavy Soul! – Prestige LP. Blues and Jazz mixed in a perfect cocktail with the voice and organ of Mr. Hawks, and then added the work of two maestros like Rudy van Gelder and Cal Lampley. Masterpiece.
The Action – The Ultimate Action – Edsel LP. The best Mod English band ever. I watched them playing in the late 90’s and it was magic. The sound was like in the records that I knew so well. Baby, you’ve got it!
Jimmy Smith – Stay loose – Verve LP. The great genious of the Hammond B3 singing with his voice and with his fingers. Essential.

Billy Hawks – Heavy Soul! – Prestige LP. Blues y Jazz crean un cocktail perfecto con la voz y el órgano de Mr. Hawks, todo aderezado con la maestría de dos genios como Rudy van Gelder y Cal Lampley. Obra maestra.
The Action – The Ultimate Action – Edsel LP. La mejor banda Mod inglesa. Los pude ver en Londres a finales de los 90 y fue un momento mágico. Sonaron igual que en los discos. Baby, you’ve got it!
Jimmy Smith – Stay Loose. – Verve LP. El gran maestro del Hammond B3 cantando con la voz y con los dedos. Imprescindible.

* If you’ve been playing for Boiler before, how do you rate your previous experience? If not, just tell us what do you expec it to be.

This will be my first time playing records in Boiler club. As public I’ve always enjoyed so much the musical policy and I’ve always danced as much as my feet could resist. As DJ I’m only interested in making the people dance and let them enjoy with Soul-Jazz, R&B, Boogaloo, some Soul and some black-inspired British sounds. Hope not dissapoint you.

Es mi primera vez a los platos en un Boiler, como público siempre he disfrutado mucho de la calidad musical y mi respuesta en la pista de baile ha ido en corcondancia. Sólo me interesa que la gente lo pase bien y baile, así que entre el Soul-Jazz, R&B, Boogaloo y algo de Soul y algún toque británico siempre bajo la perspectiva afroamericana; espero por lo menos estar a la altura.

Call for the 2nd Annual International Day of Solidarity with Antifascist Prisoners, July 25, 2016

From https://nycantifa.wordpress.com:

In the year since the first July 25th International Day of Solidarity with Antifascist Prisoners in 2015, there has been a disturbing increase of Far Right activity worldwide. Every day brings news of some new wave of reaction—in the name of nationalism and security—which demonizes refugees and immigrants, stokes hatred for Muslims, and attacks LGBTQ and other oppressed groups fighting for their liberation and their very lives.

The July 25 International Day of Solidarity with Antifascist Prisoners originated in 2014 as the Day of Solidarity with Jock Palfreeman, an Australian man serving a 20-year sentence in Bulgaria for defending two Romani men from an attack by fascist football hooligans. In 2015, we expanded our solidarity efforts to include all antifascist prisoners across the globe. There were a variety of actions around the world: groups held benefit concerts, movie nights, talks, raffles, banner drops, letter-writings, and literature distribution on the street and at a punk festival. Others did photo-ops and videos, and issued statements of solidarity.

We call on anti-fascists worldwide to act in solidarity with antifascist prisoners! Consider having an event or dedicating an action to them. They are in there for us, and we are out here for them!

No Pasaran!
Until All Are Free!
