I was asked to do a phone interview about the night for this week's BBC Introducing with Bethan Elfyn. I also had the privelege of choosing three tunes to play which were: To London by Falty DL (Ramp), Death Tunnel by Black Meteoric Star (DFA) and Specialise by The Hidden Persuader (Bass4Bots). To have a listen to the clip, click here. It's about an hour in to the show. Hope you enjoy the tracks. If you like what you hear, come to the Disco Nectar Birthday Bash on Saturday June 20th at Undertone Basement. See you there!

Celebrate with us at Undertone Basement on SATURDAY JUNE 20th with special guest, Dj Benetti!

Almost a whole year ago, a mysterious new club night called Disco Nectar emerged on the Cardiff scene bringing Clone records star Orgue Electronique to the unexpected venue of a pub function room in the city centre where scenes of uncontrollable jackin' ensued. He was followed by a string of other exciting guest Djs and artists such as Syntheme (Planet Mu), Legowelt, Dj Guy, Placid, Joe Hart and a quality acts from the South Wales scene namely Orcop, Valley Lines and the Access Tonal Communications collective. Now a monthly night at Underone Basement, Disco Nectar celebrates its first birthday with an Italo Disco special brought to you by DJ Benetti.
Dj Benetti:

William Bennett, of Experimental Noise band Whitehouse, joins us under his Disco moniker. Expect Giorgio Moroder-esque space synths, New Wave electronic drums and irresistibly infectious melodies. Having made his DJ debut under the alias Benetti at a Mafia-controlled pizza restaurant in 1980, Benetti is now renowned as one of the unsung pioneers of the Italo sound. Most recently dropping his disco diamonds an the Bloc Weekender he has played at Cocadisco (London) a record 6 times in addition to his residency at italoBLACK in Edinburgh and the monthly Disco Caligula parties, delivering magical musical odysseys that have enchanted both Italo initiates and hardcore cognoscenti every time.
