✮✮✮✮ WERK presents March Madness ✮✮✮✮ So you may have noticed that we have a bit quiet recently since our last gig at the Thekla; Don’t worry as we aren’t going anywhere except onwards and upwards - The WERK Management team have been plotting and scheming behind the scenes in preparation for this rather special announcement. We told you to stand by for some big news and now we are proud to announce that we have not one, but TWO massive gigs during the month of March - Get organising your social calendars for some March Madness... THE WERK WEEKENDER - We are proud to announce 2 consecutive nights, 2 fantastic venues and the DJs that know how to work you into a frenzy... ✮✮ FRIDAY MARCH 6TH - THEKLA ✮✮ The December Tumble event at Thekla was a complete sell-out with DJ Zinc and AC Slater (amongst others) destroying the club.... Well it's their 2nd Birthday and they've decided to celebrate Bristol style! Featuring Logan Sama, Flirta D and a massive headliner yet to be announced... We have been kindly asked to host Room 2 and we know that it's a match made in heaven. WERK we cannot wait to return to Thekla - If you made it to our last gig there then you know that the vibe was electric and it promises to be another storming night on board Bristol’s original party boat. Featuring WERK residents Greg Shaw, Old Skool Scott-e, Renny C, LInk and Amity. https://www.facebook.com/TumbleAudio https://www.facebook.com/events/1547006885555116/ ✮✮ SATURDAY MARCH 7TH - TIMBUK2 ✮✮ WERK return to our ancestral home of Timbuk2 the following night with a massive scoop as we have managed to get THE BEATMONKEYS (Chibuku Shake Shake) to play an exclusive set for us in the Tunnel.

We intend on keeping the momentum going but our monthly events at Timbuk2 will now be going bi-monthly. Whilst this may mean that you don’t get your monthly dose of WERK anymore, it also means that we are able to invest more time and effort into providing you the loyal clubbers of the South West (and beyond) exclusive headliners, bigger events, collaborations and different venues that will really raise the bar when it comes to throwing a party to remember! 2015 is shaping up to be one of the best yet for WERK as we head towards 5 years of promoting some of the best nights and DJs that Bristol has seen.

Meat Katie has had a long history in dance music. In his time he has recorded for such prestigious labels such as Wall of Sound, R&S Records, Kingsize, Bedrock, Perfecto, Great Stuff, Renaissance, Saw, not to mention his first record deal, signed to Iggy pops Kill City Records (as a bass player in 3 piece skate punk band Sandladder). Meat Katie has also remixed for/collaborated with Arthur Baker, U.N.K.L.E., Boy George, Deep Dish, D.Ramirez, Peace Division, Chicken Lips, Robbie Rivera & James Zabelia, to name but a few. To date he has released three Meat Katie artist albums, Off The Bone (1998), Long To Belong (2000) & Vibrator (2006), all diverse in style and vibe but glued together by his techy and lo-fi feel’, he has worked with such vocalist as Kurt Wagner from Nashville indie/country band Lambchop, garage/trash vocalist Holly Golightly, New York house legend Roland Clark and UK Diva Katherine Ellis, in 2000 mark also made a one off alternative album ‘Never The Less’ under the name Avenue A, a collaborative project with Jason O’Bryan co-producer with the Dub Pistols, it was this project that lead him to score the music for film adaptation of Martin Amis’ ‘Dead Babies’, an art house production by Gruber films (Shooting Fish, Waking Ned), starring Paul Bettany. Arguably it’s Meat Katie work as a DJ that has really seen him shine, a world class performer with excellent technical ability and a great understanding of the dance-floor, he has built a reputation worldwide. Those who have seen him play will know that it is his diversity and energy that has earned him such respect, his tough techy style, has seen him play across the globe alongside an eclectic group of DJs from Digitalism, Justice and Simian Mobile Disco, Soulwax and Erol Alkan, to Deep Dish, Steve Lawler, James Zabiela, Sasha & Digweed, Carl Cox, even Armand Van Buuren & Marco V, and not forgetting some of the world’s top Breaks acts including, Plump DJ’s, Stanton Warriors. He’s supported live acts such as Chemical Brothers, Pendulum, Basement Jaxx, Represent, and Infusion, and he even recently played on the Valve Soundsystem as one of the only non-Drum and Bass DJs ever to do so. It is these DJing skills that have led him to compile and mix compilations for such land mark series such as, Bedrock Breaks, Fabric Live & most recently Sessions’ for Ministry Of Sound, a very unique DJ, over the years he has perfected a cross over of techno electro with a subtle break beat feel (better know as tech-funk) in recent interviews Meat Katie described his own playing, when pressed about pigeon holing himself genre wise he replied “The only thing pigeon holes are good for…. is pigeons”, he is living proof that taste is more important than simply following the crowd and bandwagon jumping. Meat Katie has also been working on an audio visual show along side VJ Anyone (currently rated No. 3 in the World) together they have taken their unique show to clubs such as Fabric, Urban Gorilla, Technique and festivals such as Glastonbury, Glade, and many more. Not satisfied with being a World class DJ producer the self confessed workaholic also found time to set up and run his own highly influence Lot49 imprint (with Dylan Rhymes, whom he also shares a studio with in South West London under the same name). Lot49 has without a doubt maintained a reputation as being a taste-making label, never shy to experiment with multi-genres and with over 50 releases under it’s belt featuring artists such as Dubfire, Audiojack, D.Ramirez, Elite Force, Dexter, Phil Kieran, Lee Coombs, Robbie Rivera, Marco Bailey, James Talk, Alex Metric, Lutzenkirchen, Evil Nine and obviously Meat Katie & Dylan Rhymes, the Lot49 steamroller shows no sign of slowing down, it will celebrate it’s 5 year anniversary later this year with an exclusive label compilation CD/ with a an exclusive DVD documentary about the label and artists. Also on the night we have Robosapiens (Dead Famous), Bass Junk, Steve Glitch, Dr Fly, Guy the Rev, Mishima, wobbling Wookie playing Breaks, Drum and Bass, Ghetto Funk and House.
