Love4Life summer soundsystem fun! 2012...
This summer sees the return of the AWA party crew. following the sell out sucess of last years event, and still determined to put the fun back into partying, this years event “love4life” will be a fully licensed weekender, 17th-19th of August, at a rural farm site, in Cornwall, with marquees to party in, and camping on site. These parties were originally an invite only, outdoor gathering, where veteran dj’s of the acid house scene leave their usual set at home, and look towards the back of their record collections. As ever, the event will be a retro vinyl affair, offering a journey into the highlights of house music from the ‘80s and ‘90s, its influences, and acid house, trance, and techno of the ‘90s underground party movement. Celebrating love, life, spine tingling tunes, and the acid house counter culture that inspired people all over the world to smile and dance together.
For the main event on Saturday, free party pioneers DiY Soundsystem will be bringing the original Black Box rig and a full crew, inc Digs and Woosh, and Simon DK, with support from Ornate music's Jonno and Tommo, Warwick, plus Debs n Rob (babble).
Formed back in the heady days of ‘89, in Nottingham, initially throwing house parties, before moving on to throw their first event at The Garage, home to a fledgling Graeme Park, in November of that year.
They went on to take decks and records to Glastonbury ‘90, meeting up with some like minded travellers to forge an inspired liaison that led to the start of the UK free party scene.
From Castle Morton to the Café del Mar, DiY extended their punk ethos into a veritable empire of record label, recording studio, production, club nights, and outdoor parties, with the sound system receiving international underground acclaim. Although becoming deeply involved in a new movement combining protest with pleasure, DiY themselves remained enigmatic, always avoiding simple categorization and demanding that the collective ethos that underlay their philosophy was not sacrificed to the temptation of momentary fame; perhaps the most satisfaction was gained by DiY when ‘In the City 97’ described them as ‘culturally, the most dangerous people in the UK.”.
DiY Discs, their record label, launched in ‘90, with the first LP ‘Strictly 4 Groovers’ licensed to WARP and selling 20000 copies. Remixes by DJ Pierre, Charles Webster, and a young Phil Asher all featured, as did debuts from Atjazz, Nail (Bent) and contributions from Groove Armada’s Andy Cato, himself cutting his teeth at the free parties of the early ‘90s. The imprint currently numbers over 100 releases, with tracks from the crew and some collected on their travels.
These trips abroad took them to Dallas for the legendary Hazy Daze ranch parties, as well as Canada, Sydney, New Zealand, Tokyo, Thailand and as much of Europe as had discovered the deep house groove. Ibiza beckoned in ‘90, invited by Jose Padilla & playing with A Man Called Adam during appearances at Amnesia, Space Terrace & Pacha throughout the ‘90s. Back in the UK, a now infamous coach trip to the Hacienda ended with the whole posse ejected for having too much fun, and a wan Tony Wilson stating ‘we never overrule our bouncers’. 2012 marks 23 years of this legendary outfit and their mission to bring the house music of the clubs to the fields and the freedom of the fields to the clubs.
DJs, Producers and label owners, JONNO & TOMMO hail from London's Deep House music scene. JONNO, originally from Nottingham and a DJ involved with the Smokescreen 'free party' scene, is now head honcho of Rival Recordings UK and has also released under the guise of Arch Rivals and Rubberneck on Drop Music. TOMMO spends his days working at award winning on-line music store Juno Records and running influential deep house label Ornate Music which name checks Toka Project, Fish Go Deep, Agnes & Moodymanc on its current release roster.
If anything is an indication of what these two are capable of, look no further than Doc Martin, who said he'd be playing their remix of Bleep District's - Secret Disciples "until the grooves ran out".
Headlining on the second rig, needing no introduction, representing the tek end of the old skool party scene, is our regular guest, and acid techno legend, Chris liberator, from the Stay Up Forever collective. Always well received, with a wealth of releases under his belt, his unique sets are in worldwide demand, and guaranteed to hit the spot. Chris will be joined by a large SUF crew this year, Aaron Liberator, Ant, Rackitt and Gizelle(tbc). Providing support are Sikaflex tbc and Je:5, now key members of international cutting edge techno outfit Ugly Funk, having previously cut their teeth on the infamous BWPT sound system in the ‘90s, throwing regular and rowdy free techno parties across the midlands countryside and city warehouses. Local backup from underground stalwarts Ryan Holland(full contact) and Simon+Mat Spacecase(love4life).

Back by popular demand, after rocking the last AWA party at the Koola in June ’08, and again at love4life August 2010, are the oldskoolanthemz.com crew (the biggest and most active old skool site on the net with over 10000 members) They will be bringing a bunch of talented djs joined by, and a huge stack of oldskool vinyl covering Club classics and 80s-90s house styles, oldskool hip hop, breaks, electro and beyond.
