HotCakes is one of the UK’s leading underground labels, agencies and dance music nights around. Having attended several myself I can confirm that they consistently lineup the best dj’s in the Breaks, Bass and Drum n Bass / Jungle scenes from all around the world to make their parties always ones to remember. They’re also backed up by a following of bass hungry ravers who go to these nights with the same attitude as any normal person does, to have a bloody good time, make new friends and dance the night away with, drama free.
Such is the growth of the HotCakes brand the guys have decided release a compilation album ‘ Bass Shakers ‘ and to make it that bit more special they asked a lady who encompasses what the Breaks scene is all about, Lady Waks.
There aren’t many harder working artists out there than Lady Waks. The reason behind this, music, she loves it, especially that of a broken beat variety! Russia is now rich with Breakbeat because of Lady Waks and the ‘ In Beat We Trust ‘ parties she throws which is also the name of the promotion company she heads up and her record label. That’s not enough for this creative lady though. As well as her dj / production work Lady Waks has her weekly radio show which we have posted many guest mixes from which include Wes Smith, Terry Hooligan, Krafty Kuts and Pyramid to name a few. The show goes out every Tuesday to 25 million listeners, figures BBC Radio 1 can only dream about! Away from music Lady Waks likes to turn even more of her skills towards design and photography, of which she has become more than accomplished at.
The ‘ Bass Shakers ‘ mixes Lady Waks has put together are compiled of some very well known names in the Breaks seen, Stantons Warriors, Freestylers and of course Deekline who runs HotCakes, but along side those names are some real up and coming stars of the genre, The Push, Outselect and Pirate Jams. As well as having some of the freshest new music around on this compilation Lady Waks has picked out a few Breaks anthems all designed for one purpose only, to create a party atmosphere wherever it is played and that it does! Check out the very lively mini mix Lady Waks has done to to promote ‘ Bass Shakers ‘ which is posted above. It’s the perfect teaser to what awaits when you purchase what is an incredible compilation of music!
HotCakes have a wicked party coming up on the June 20th along with our good friends over at Funk n Filth. Check the lineup below and click HERE to find out more. There’s not many tickets left for this so if it has caught your eye don’t hang around!
