MIDNITE SPECIAL > Italy’s Own! 
www.myspace .com/midnitespecialband 
Nacidos en la esfera mod de Vicenza, este quinteto italiano de Rhythm and Soul liderado por el hombre de 
DNA Groove Claudio de Rossi, asimismo compronente de otra muy interesante banda (Immaculates, el combo 
de mod jazz de los 90), gana día a día más popularidad gracias a su repertorio ultra cool. La banda 
toma lo mejor del  R&B de Chicago y de los sonidos Early Soul, haciendo un show en directo que ha sido 
aclamado en weekenders como The Italian Job (Rimini) o The All Saints Mod Holiday (Lavarone). Esta es la 
primera vez que nos visitan en nuestro país, así que decididamente no hay que perdérselos! 

ORGANIC RHYTHM GENERATION > Barcelona ’s new sensation! 
www.myspace .com/organicrhythmgeneration 
Cuando cuatro músicos como estos se juntan en un nuevo proyecto, estamos sin duda alguna ante un 
acontecimiento importante.  ORG está formado por músicos de la escena barcelonesa con interesantes 
trayectorias a sus espaldas, y que a menudo podemos ver por escenarios de dentro y fuera de nuestras 
fronteras… En esta ocasión, unen sus fuerzas con el objetivo de recuperar el sonido de los mejores 
combos instrumentales de boogaloo, soul, jazz y blues de los años 60 y 70, como Booker T & The MG's, 
The Meters o Jimmy Smith, para devolverlo al presente sin perder un ápice de energía e intentando que 
cada uno de sus shows en directo se convierta en una experiencia inolvidable. En estos momentos están 
preparando el que será el primer single del grupo, que verá la luz a finales de este año 2009. 

ROB MESSER ( Hip City Rds., UK ) 
Uno de los mejores DJ´s de Soul surgidos de la escena mod de los 80. Entre la innumerable lista de clubs 
y weekenders que han contado con sus servicios en todos estos años cabe destacar el 100 Club, Clethorpes 
Weekender, Tretham Gardens, Mars Barr, las allnighters de R&B de Stoke, S.O.U.L. o el ya desaparecido 
Floorshaker Barcelona. Durante más de 10 años ha organizado el popular club Almost Grown, en Southend, 
siendo asimismo responsable de la Rhythm & Soul Set Organisation. En 1995 y hasta la actualidad regenta 
Hip City Records, un excelente catálogo de venta de discos por correo, especializado en Northern soul, 
R&B y mod sounds (Eduardo Domingo). 
Versátil DJ, apasionado del Soul, el R&B, el Jazz, el Latin… estos son 5 de sus temas favoritos en la 
actualidad: 
Ree Flores: Look into my heart (MH) 
Ray Medina: Heads head (Mares) 
Houston Outlaws: Ain’t no telling (Westbound) 
Jimmy Phillips: She belongs to me (Bumps) 
King Coleman: Black bottom blues ( Columbia ) 

MIK PARRY (Pow Wow, UK )

Sheffield, uno de los clubs mod / R&B más concurridos del Reino Unido. Es DJ habitual en eventos mod &

JUAN IBAÑEZ (Barcelona) 
“Apasionado del doo wopp desde hace... buff unos 15 años. En el año '92 empiezo a realizar un fanzine 
dedicado por completo a los grupos vocales. En el '93 comienzo a colaborar en el programa "El Ritual 
Nocturno" y en el '98 creo el sello Sweet Beat Records. Poco a poco el círculo fue ampliándose y hoy en 
día puedo citar el R&B y al early soul, junto al doo wopp, como estilos favoritos. Hasta ahora he 
paseado mis discos por el “Shuffle Club” y “Funtastic Dracula Carnival” en Valencia, “Groove” en 
Tarragona, “Boiler” y “Shake it Up!” en Barcelona, “Smart” en Madrid, “Wet Dream Weekend” de Valladolid 
y  “Midnite Town All-Nighter” en Birmingham (UK), Roots of Rhythm en Bristol (UK)...”. 
The Belmonts : Walk on boy (Sabrina) 
The Gay Poppers: I want to know (Fire) 
The Fabulous Clovers: They’re rockin down the street (Winley) 
The Majestics: Treat me like you want to be treated (Chex) 
Maurice Williams & The Zodiacs: College girl (Selwyn) 

FRANTIC AL (Barcelona) 
Rhythm'n’blues! Rhythm'n’blues! Rhythm'n’blues! Albert empezó a pinchar en 1992 en las sesiones "Only 
50s" del club Jeremy. Estas sesiones, pioneras de la escena Hepcat, lo llevaron por festivales estatales, 
clubs barceloneses y conciertos por el sur de Francia. Revindicando el R’n’b cuando no estaba de moda. 
Hoy en dia pincha sólo de forma esporádica, pero continúa siendo uno de nuestros Talent Scouts preferidos. 
Es un placer tenerlo de nuevo en el Boiler, pinchando Rhythm'n’blues en vinilo. Como tiene que ser. 
Don & Dewey: Justine (Specialty) 
Little Ike: She can rock (Champion) 
Ruth Brown: Mama, he treats your daughter mean ( Atlantic ) 
The Coasters: Poison Ivy (Atco) 
The Rays: Daddy cool (Cameo)

MIDNITE SPECIAL > Italy’s Own! 
www.myspace .com/midnitespecialband 
Hailing up from Vicenza’s mod sphere, this Italian 5 piece Rhythm and Soul combo led by DNA Groove man 
Claudio de Rossi, former leader of another interesting band (the 90s mod jazz combo Immaculates), is 
already gaining popularity thanks to its cool repertoire. The band takes the best of the Chicago R&B and 
Early Soul sounds, mixing it up in a superb live show that has already been acclaimed at weekenders like 
The Italian Job (Rimini) or The All Saints Mod Holiday (Lavarone). This is the first time in Spain for 
those cats, So it is definately not to be missed! 

ORGANIC RHYTHM GENERATION > Barcelona ’s new sensation! 
www.myspace .com/organicrhythmgeneration 
When four musicians such as those join a new project we certainly have a great event before us. All ORG 
members, who come from Barcelonese scene, have interesting careers behind them, and we have frequently 
seen them all performing in our country as well as abroad... This time these musicians have united their 
efforts with the aim of bringing back the sound of the best 60s & 70s instrumental bands of boogaloo, 
soul, jazz and blues, such as Booker T & The MG's, The Meters or Jimmy Smith. This sound is put back to 
present without losing a bit of energy, and every ORG live show is intended to become an unforgettable 
experience. At the present time ORG are preparing their first single, which will be brought to light by 
the end of this year 2009.

“In love with doo wopp for... already 15 years.  In 1992 I began to carry out a fanzine dedicated 
completely to the vocal groups.  In 1993 I started to collaborate at the radio show "The Nocturnal 
Ritual" and in 1998 I founded the label Sweet Beat Records.  Little by little the circle was being 
expanded and nowadays I can cite the R&B and the early soul together with doo wopp as my favorite styles. 
I have been playing at the “Shuffle Club” and “Funtastic Dracula Carnival” in Valencia, “Groove” in 
Tarragona, “Boiler” and “Shake it Up!” in Barcelona, “Smart” in Madrid, “Wet Dream Weekend” in Valladolid 
and at the “Midnite Town All-Nighter” in Birmingham, Roots of Rhythm in Bristol...”.

FRANTIC AL (Barcelona) 
Rhythm'n blues! Rhythm'n blues! Rhythm'n blues! Albert started DJing in 1992, at the Jeremy Club "Only 
50s" sessions. These sessions, pioneering the Hepcat Scene, took him to festivals all around Spain, 
barcelona clubs and concerts in the south of France. Revindicating R’n’b when it wasn't a trend. Today 
he seldom Djs, but continues to be one of our favourite Talent Scouts. Its a true pleasure to have him 
behind the Boiler decks again, spinning Rhythm'n’blues in vinyl. The way it should be.
