GIRL UNIT (Night Slugs) at Stealth (19/02/11)GIRL UNIT (Night Slugs)
Philip Gamble, the 24-year-old Londoner behind the GU mask, began DJing circa 2006-7 as 'Girl U No It's True', and after a few years decided to move into the world of music production. After playing alongside L-Vis 1990 and Bok Bok at one of their Night Slugs parties in London, Girl Unit passed on some of his tracks, showcasing his UK take on RnB/rap and regional US club music styles. This resulted in Girl Unit's first release, the 'IRL EP', which came out in early 2010 on the Night Slugs label:
The release of his second Night Slugs EP was pushed forward due to the hype surrounding it - with DJs jacking clips and making their own playable edits of the tracks from online mixes. The title track ‘Wut’ was proclaimed single of the year by some of the most influential figures in bass music before it was even released.
‘Wut’ is the kind of uber-anthem bound to induce the kind of awestruck stupefaction as exemplified in its vocal refrain. Put simply, ‘Wut’ is massive, euphoric, a tune, big, banging, thrashing, whatever adjective you might want to throw at it; it satisfies every and all criteria." - Fact Magazine
The track has featured in the majority of the 'Top tracks of 2010' lists, sound tracking parties all over the globe. Here are a few clips showing the reaction the track has been causing in the clubs:

Girl Unit has also created remixes for CRST, Wigflex's Taylor and Katy B and Ms Dynamite:

During Girl Unit’s DJ sets he tries to cohesively work his way through global house sounds, dirty south instrumentals, detroit/chicago classics, raw US club tracks and local bangers from rising UK producers, as well as his own productions and Night Slugs label mates releases. Here are two of his mixes to give you an idea of what to expect from his set at Stealth Vs Rescued:
