The Golden Boy

The-Golden-Boy-1018x755

Being influenced by the sounds of early 90’s house and garage, it’s no wonder Birmingham’s very own The Golden Boy is releasing weighty bass heavy bangers. With tracks such as “Gonna do” and “Poolside Croatia” that can be heard being spun on the highest of platforms such as BBC Radio 1 and Rinse FM.

The Golden Boy started laying down the foundations to the musical career he didn’t know he was going to have at the tender age of 14. With his young innocent years seeing him play various musical instruments from guitar to saxophone to eventually being lead around the back of the decks for some mix and blend, this being evoked from influences such as Annie Mac and Disclosure. Gravitating towards the decks and developing a passion for electronic music saw The Golden Boy aka Dominic Hammonds build a reputation for himself, landing him in headline slots in some of the biggest underground house and techno nights such as Bristol’s Halfnaked

After releasing his remix of Lauren Hill’s “That Thing” which has now racked up just under 2 million plays, you could definitely say that The Golden Boy started to turn some heads and make himself one of the most relevant young DJ’s within the UK scene. Having the UK house scene at his feet with a string of releases, mixes and shows, It was no time before The Golden Boy was put in contact with Mad Tech, the label created by the king pin of house Kerri Chandler. It wasn’t long until the godfather of house MR Chandler had The Golden Boy releasing “Do You” which is without saying a strident, bass flavoured hard hitter. This grabbing the attention of various labels as well as landing him at the top of the list for any DJ booking agency. 

If for whatever reason you weren’t convinced before, by now you should be. Releasing material on a label like MadTech is no joke and by doing so, it’s evident that The Golden Boy is striving for big things.

Get to know : BAAUER

GET TO KNOW : BAAUER

In anticipation of Baauer's return to Stealth on Tuesday 17th November, we take a look at the man himself and what he's been up to.
For more info on the event and tickets - click here!

Baauer - Stealth Nottingham - 17th November 2015


Music is what runs through Harry Bauer Rodrigues’ veins. The 26 year old trap and bass producer/DJ from Philadelphia has been making music since he was 12 years old, and is showing absolutely no signs of slowing down.

Even if the name doesn’t sound familiar to you, there’s no excuse as to why you won’t have heard of his track ‘Harlem Shake’ released on Mad Decent/Jeffrees, also in addition to the mass online hysteria that followed its release- with over 1 million people watching and creating their own dance videos to the hit. The undisputed banger won Dance Song of the Year and EDM Song of the Year at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, and merited critical acclaim from Pitchfork Media, praising ‘it’s hard not to marvel at how awesome those growling-lion samples sound’.

Don’t be fooled though, the man is certainly no one hit wonder; his career has been moving skyward at an astonishing speed- collaborating with Grammy Award winning Just Blaze on their track ‘Higher’, completing remixes for household names Jay Z, Disclosure, AlunaGeorge, Nero, No Doubt, The Prodigy and fellow trap hero Flosstradamus, alongside an intense tour schedule- including his weekly residency at LIGHT nightclub in Las Vegas.

With his roots firmly based in Hip Hop and Dance music, his signing to the LuckyMe record label in August 2012 couldn’t have been better suited, with fellow artists on the label including Hudson Mohawke, Lunice, Jacques Greene, Cashmere Cat and Eclair Fifi.

Something that makes Baauer a particularly interesting producer to take note of, is his ability to extract musical influence from the sounds and styles he soaked up on his travels worldwide. Growing up in several countries due to his father’s work, Baauer lived in Germany from age 4 to 7, London until he was 13, where he then returned to the United States, in Connecticut from 13 to 17. The journey didn’t end there though, with him moving back to London in 2006 and then back to the States, New York to study audio technology at City College. After taking residence in Harlem for two years, he settled in Brooklyn in 2009 which is where he currently resides... for now.

If passion and drive for music production is measured in air miles, then Baauer is undoubtedly at the forefront of that race. He’s travelled to the other end of the globe, from the far off deserts of the United Arab Emirates, to the volcanoes and cities of Japan meeting with the indigenous Ainu people- searching for new influences and sounds to draw inspiration from, ensuring he exceeds the weighty shadow cast by ‘Harlem Shake’. Drawing on exotic and unusual instruments along the way, Baauer is somewhat of a professor of sound, creating musical concoctions and collages that are completely unique. DJ/Producer Nick Hook coined the term ‘a musical Indiana Jones’ for Baauer- and judging from his adventures and succeeding the task of capturing the sounds of the world- we’re not one to disagree. Discovery and experience are an intrinsic part of Baauer’s creative process, and is what makes his music so innovative and special to an audience.

We couldn’t be prouder to have the man himself play here on the 17th of November- and as a thank you for your loyal support over the previous weeks/months/years, we are excited to announce a special one off free party in honour of trap royalty’s return to Room 1, ensuring that all our dedicated fans can witness the sensational DJ/producer in all his glory.    

Check out one of Baauer’s most recent tracks ‘GoGo!’

Get to know... DJ HAUS.

DJ HAUS is the bossman of one of the most hyped labels around - the digital rave factory 'Unknown to the Unknown', as well as being a producer in his own right - with his tracks being championed by Bicep, Ben UFO, Annie Mac, Jackmaster, DJ Q, Hot Chip, Redlight & many more. His most recent track 'Make It Hot' (out now on Rinse) has been soundtracking festivals all summer:

 Starting out as one half of garage throwback outfit Hot City, DJ Haus released his first solo track 'Needin U' (backed with a 'Dub Mix' from house legend MK) on his Unknown To The Unknown label back in 2012.

shadow child 2014 press shot

 SHADOW CHILD!

UK based Shadow Child made his debut via the Claude VonStroke's Dirtybird label early in 2012, mostly thanks to the EP's lead track 'String Thing' dominating Eats Everything and Claude VonStroke's DJ sets. 

Making his Stealth debut in 2008 under a previous alias, Shadow Child has become one of the biggest producers & DJs in the game - releasing his own material on Moda Black, Food Music, Defected and Dirtybird; and remixing the likes of Hot Since 82, Justin Martin, Hardrive, Miguel Campbell, AlunaGeorge, Duke Dumont and not forgetting this classic for Jamie Jones' Hot Natured project:

His A&R skills aren't too shabby either - having signed the likes of Hannah Wants, Chris Lorenzo, New York Transit Authority, Motez, Goldffinch, Fake Blood & Bodhi to his label Food Music, which he runs with Kry Wolf. 

Along with his own solo material, Shadow Child has also collaborated with the likes of My Nu Leng, Friend Within, Ben Pearce, T.Williams and Doorly, with whom he released the massive 'Piano Weapon':

  After his celebrated midnight slot at dollop NYE, we are super excited about welcoming back Shadow Child to Nottingham.
