Q&A with Sagia


We start the first in our series of interviews with the artists who will be performing at our event in Trapeze Basement club on the 23rd January 2016 with Sagia.

Sagia tells about her releases on labels like Area Remote, her remix work and about the state of play of the club scene in London currently. Read the full interview here.

Make a Breach style bass

It’s been a Foolboyz weekend with Hearts Stood Still riding high in the deep house charts. We got them in to do a production tutorial about how they made the bassline in the track, which we’re told was inspired by the bass in Breach’s Jack.

YouTube deep house mix

Any DJ will tell you how hard it is to post a mixtape on YouTube due to copyright infringement issues. Somehow some people manage to get a handful of mixes up, but we’ve found the best answer: upload music you own the copyright to! So we contacted Foolboyz, Pablo del Monte and Restless and asked them for some of their unreleased material and then got Pablo to do the honours…

Remix competition

We are running a remix competition in conjunction with Foolboyz who have posted the parts to a deep house track they use as the basis of a YouTube tutorial in the station’s Facebook page for you to download and remix. Entrants should summit a private Soundcloud (or equivalent) link to their remix to bricklaneradio@gmail.com by 28/2/14. Entries will be judged by the the Brick Lane Radio team and Foolboyz and the winner will be announced by 7/2/14. The winner will be given their own weekly show on Brick Lane Radio and, if the track is of sufficiently high standard, will have their production considered for release on our soon-to-be record label, Brick Lane Records. The details of how to download the Logic X file used by Foolboyz in the tutorial can be found in the text box below their YouTube tutorial video, which by the way is an excellent watch…

Logic X deep house tutorial by Foolboyz

We have been loving Logic X at the station ever since it was launched. There are some very cool and welcome features in there. We came across this great tutorial by the station’s own Foolboyz on YouTube so we thought we would re-post it here. The tutorial is 90 minutes long and covers writing a deep house track from scratch and runs through most of the new features in Logic X along the way.  A must watch for all you producers out there.
