MXD #005 – B.A.H.Y (Amplify)
For the fifth mix in our series we welcome B.A.H.Y, head honcho and resident of ‘Amplify’ – Hertfordshire’s hottest House and Techno export and new monthly Sunday party here at 1001.
Armed with a sound-engineering background and a degree in electronic music, B.A.H.Y’s own production is crisp, neat and tidy, keeping it interesting with clever sample use and leaning toward the darker, techier sound.
His DJ sets marry House and Techno tunes seamlessly. He kicks off his mix for us with some groovy Tech house and steadily progresses into a moodier Techno overtone, accentuating his expansive and varied interest in electronic music and shedding some light on the music policy of the Amplify brand.
A high calibre of previous guests including Josh Butler, Leftwing & Kody and Mark Fanciulli gives some insight into what you can expect from Hertfordshire’s hottest House and Techno party and with Amplify on the rise, B.A.H.Y is definitely one to watch for 2016.

Amplify – Every last Sunday at Cafe 1001

It’s official. Claire Danes is one of us.
The ‘Homeland’ star appeared on The Ellen Show and recounted her experience at Berlin’s infamous ‘Temple of Techno’ – Berghain, going into detail about her surroundings including naked dancing and the ice cream parlour. Danes at one point goes as far as describing it as ‘the best place ever’. You go Claire.
Danes can be forgiven for letting slip that, with her Hollywood status, she managed to avoid the hawk eye of Sven Marquardt at the main entrance and ‘got to go in the back’. We still love her for being aboard the Techno train.
We can’t forgive whoever chose the ‘Techno Music’ played on the show though, we’re pretty sure that borders dodgy Eurovision Trance. Luckily, Claire Danes knows what’s up, exclaiming ‘That’s Not Good Techno Music!’ before showing us the moves she likes to throw down on a Sunday afternoon session in Berlin.
