Skull Juice

Last month saw the final chapter of Blogger’s Delight , a bi-monthly night that was run by London residents Skull Juice, Casper C, and NikNikNik. With the termination of the clubnight, Skull Juice’s Alex Egan and Benedict Bull also decided to end their six-year B2B duo identity, by playing their last ever DJ sets at Field Day 2011.

Alex explained that, on playing such short sets (30 minutes each), they decided to “just play stuff that would fit between the acts (Darkstar and Oneohtrix Point Never) rather than a ‘this is a Skull Juice’ set”. Warming up the crowd with tracks by Gatekeeper, Teengirl Fantasy and Jan Hammer, Alex and Ben’s last B2B DJ sets were ambitious and fresh, as they ventured through some of the top cuts and personal favourites of different genres. The mixing was worldly; the tunes were eclectic, but seemed fitting on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Building up a climax with more dancefloor-friendly tunes like Kassem Mosse’s 7pm and In Flagranti’s Deceptive Secrecy, they did not forget to play out Conrad Schnitzler’s Ballet Statique, which obviously was a tribute to the late German electronic musician, who passed away on Thursday (4th August).
