Feel The Hand Of Todd - July 16th

Feel the hand of Todd

Touch the Stache of Wade

Hold on to your Tango Terje

This is a long time coming for us, watching, waiting, youtubing, googling for glimpses and sounds of the myth that is the Norseman Terje.

Years ago, via soulseek or some other relic of the internet that isn't worth remembering, we first stumbled across his comme de moodymann edit of CHIC's 'I want your love'. Using Yahoo? or maybe it was Ask Jeeves? we dug up all we could on the Terje, he had remixed another bearded Norwegian 'Lindstrom' and had the aptly named and incredibly catchy 'Italian Stallion' coming out on Full Pupp.

Years went by, leaking brilliant live DJ mixes from castles in scottland and over 100 edits of songs from every genre yet known to exist, and his norse mythos continued to grow. His reputation established him as one of the most respected and fun loving DJ's traveling the globe.

We even received a text from a family member in Australia last year that simply read 'Life haz bean altered 4 evar moore' (sorry- no translation, i can't read australian) after attending a tango terje helmed party.

It all culminated in this years incredibly original 'Snooze 4 Love' EP for Running Back, which finally ushered in the chance for him to tour North America properly.

No press release could really sum up the wild taste and variety he brings to his DJ sets.

Suffice to say- On July 16th- He will Play, You will Dance, We will Party

"There are no dire wolves south of the wall" - Eddard Stark

It was a pact formed in blood that the Evening Standard would eventually host a live show. WOOLFY's croon over heard drifting from the earphones of a babe across the aisle on the night bus had haunted us for years.
His name had been found scrawled on a crumpled page under the heading IDEAL BOOKING sometime during the witching hour between day and night and not sure.


...We then heard whispers, oft spoke in hushed tones from DJ's that travelled from far away places. Tales were told of WOOLFY, not just being a maestro of intergalactic sex music, but also being a DJ of the highest order. Stories were told to us of disco drum loops, re-imagined house cuts and coconut bras everywhere. Words like 'initimidating' - 'impossible to follow up' - 'murder' - and 'nipple slip effect' were all used to describe simon WOOLFY james' DJ'ng abilities.

Thinking that this would all be very appropriate for an EVENING STANDARD, we opted to bring in the english born, LA based WOOLFY to DJ and have him tear apart any last feelings of winters bite and give everyone's legs a reason to feel alive again.

If your not familiar with his own tunes. Its well worth taking the time to do so. His work with Projections lead to an incredible LP on Permanent Vacation. Highlighted with simmering beautiful tracks like 'Carry On' and 'Neeve'.
Singles on RONG like 'odyssey' gave us all a timeless piece of summer engraved in a black 12" vinyl.
A full LP on DFA carried his haunting vocals across the love jam rythms of "Looking Glass' and " Two Far Gone". Let your ears drink it up.
