Dean Meredith & Ben Shenton, AKA Mind Fair, are readying for their annual Rotation Summer Party. Rolling their bespoke soundsystem of 4-way Klipschorns, beautiful Bozak, customized 1210s, valve amps, Revox reel-to-reel…into the walled garden of Bishton Hall, just outside Stafford. Adhering to their motto, and ensuring that “Everything you hear is true”.
A definite institution, and date for the diary, this’ll be the 5th year they’ve be at it. Previous headlining guests have included Colleen “Cosmo” Murphy, and Bill “LNADSML / Low Life / DJHistory” Brewster. On July 20th, it’ll be the turn of none other than Nick The Record. Further support coming from Stuart Robinson, and everyone’s favourite vinyl “nut” (and secret Boogie expert), Rob J.
I was hoping to bully the boys into another mix, but due to circumstances unforeseen, time is now tight. Ben and Dean, instead, have given me a current top ten. As usual it`s full of tunes I’ve never heard, but now am saving up to buy (That 3 Pieces track!?!?!?).
The fun commences at 2PM and continues `til midnight. I think buses to and from are sorted. You can purchase tickets here.
