James A. Shaw loves his monikers as much as he loves music. James Cambrian is James new house and dance alias, among various aliases such as Poly Set, Borth Sea Defence, Vales, The Lodge, Boolean Orchestra, Al Calavicci. James enjoys drinking mind-altering amounts of Yorkshire Tea and making, selecting and playing music. The latter he’s rather good at, frequently displayed via his label Cambrian Line and radio show Quantum Bleep.

On friday the OneBeat event season kicks off with a showcase in our favourite basement in Wedding. We didn’t throw a proper dance party in a while so it’s about time. We invited the tech-house duo and live-act Bacalao & Sonne to present some new tunes in one of their energetic live-sets, alongside James A. Shaw and Ma Tias, both finest selectors when it comes to house and disco. Visuals will be provided by our RTZ23. Our friends from Barfuss and Brunnen70 invited the great Toby Dreher plus the excellent residents Mathias Meindl and Jean Ferré. Looks like a something you should dance to, come along!

arrowPhotos – One(Beats) at Brunnen70 w/ Kyson, Wermonster & more, 08.09.2012

19.09.12 by Lukas

On saturday the 8th of September we where back down under in the Brunnen70 basement. This time with a different lineup, different musical direction and in a bigger room. We prepared well for our showcase at the monthly “Wedding Present” underground festival, bringing 2 DJs, 3 Live-Acts, 2 VJs and a light installation.

The night started with a journey through uk bass, hip hop and house by James A. Shaw as playing under his moniker Borth Sea Defence (stay tuned for more, James OneBeat artist profile is coming up). He played a live dj set with “two turntables, a laptop running Traktor and Ableton, a Korg nanopad triggering hits and samples which are running from Ableton and a Korg Monotron Delay for a few oscillations”. Enough said, listen to the recording of the Borth Sea Defence set below.

After James we had One Dub Connection finally performing again on a OneBeat showcase since Karneval der Kulturen in 2011. A blend of dub and drum’n’bass, followed by the electronica live-act Kyson, who brought plenty of gear and even had a drummer for percussion lined up, but who sadly got ill before the event. Lush, deep, and more upbeat then ever before he pleased us with a brilliant live performance.
Third live-act in a row was Wermonster, beatmaker deluxe who came straight from recording sessions in Wiesbaden. Nico has been a busy man lately. Last but not least, Alex from One Dub Connection performed a banging drum’n’bass set under his alias Trilingo… we must agree that drum’n’bass isn’t something you hear often enough in Berlin these days, that was great for a change. For visuals we invited Robert Heel for a light installation (check out his work at www.robertheel.com) and RTZ23 and E (E-Gruppe Berlin) for vjing (E introduced us to some pretty straightforward projection mapping, thanks again for the help with the setup).

Thanks go out to all the helping hands and of course our artists for playing for OneBeat for free, thus helping us grow our project and network. We hope to see you next time!

arrowMixtape: James A. Shaw at OneBeat Showcase at Brunnen70, 12.05

James A. Shaw at Brunnen70

The OneBeat Showcase at Brunnen70 back in may, surely was a party to remember. A brilliant night with jolly good music by lots from our artist collective. But, James A. Shaw still needs an introduction: The man is new to the collective and already supported the project twice, most recently at our Showcase at Karneval der Kulturen. James puts out amazing music on his label Cambrian Line, runs the radio show Quantum Bleep on BLN.FM and makes music under monikers like Al Calavicci, Borth Sea Defence, Dethyr, Sofa Soldiers, Boolean Orchestra amongst others. You get the point, he knows his shit like few others. So be sure to listen to the last hour of his 3 hour warm up set below… Welcome James, we’re looking forward to a great time together!
