This weekend sees the Hot Cakes crew teaming up with Instant Vibes and taking over the Thames with their summer boat party. The main players of both labels Deekline and Krafty Kuts are headlining with a plethora of the best bass and breaks DJ’s supporting.
The after party at Brixton Jamm is again stacked full of the baddest breaks and bass with our fellow bloggers Funk and Filth hosting room two. Grab yourselves a ticket HERE. You can also read through to the bottom of the page for your chance to win 2 x tickets to the after party.
I caught up with Deekline ahead of the party to find out a little more.
1. Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions. For those that don’t know, who are you and what do you do?
I’m Deekline, a London-based producer and DJ. I’ve been doing my thing since the late 90s and I like to think I cover a number of different styles of dance music pretty well.
2. What’s currently happening in the world of Deekline?
A the moment I’ve got my EP coming out called the Heartbreak EP that’s been doing really well and getting some very positive feedback. Annie Mac played it on Radio One, so I’m very happy about that. The track had a lot of time and heart put into it so I’m pleased it’s doing well.
3. The Hot Cakes vs Instant Vibes Boat Party is this weekend. What is it that makes the boat parties so special?
In part it’s that the party is on the Thames going through the centre of London. It’s one of the most cultured places in the world and you pass some of the most historic places in the capital while listening to some of your favourite music. It’s definitely the best way to see the city, and the crowd is always great. They seem very easygoing and real partygoers who don’t have any chip on their shoulders.
4. As always a wicked line up but who would be Djing your perfect party? Past and present?
My ideal party would have to packed full with people who have inspired me. You would definitely have to have DJ Hype, because he got me into dance music in the very early days. From the breaks scene I would have Stanton Warriors and Lady Waks. From the house side of things I would have someone from the Chicago scene like Fast Eddie, who would MC and scratch.
5. I see you have a Hot Cakes festival coming soon in Spain. Tell us a bit more
It’s in a beautiful part of the country, Andalucia, where they are very passionate about their breakbeats. I’ve been going there for 15 years now, and they keep asking me back. I’d highly recommend anyone who wants to travel and see a great breaks show to book a plane ticket and head out there! (Facebook event page HERE)
6. Your own music and the labels you run are a mix of all bass flavours. Do you have a favourite and why?
At the moment I like some broken beat stuff that crosses boundaries, so that people who are into house might play it, and people who are into breaks might as well. I like the Dirtybird label and Chris Lorenzo right now.
7. You have been a staunch supporter of breaks when many others have moved on or dabbled in other sounds. What is it about the breaks that keeps you producing?
I think to be honest I do love house and I come from a garage background but I always found the broken beat more interesting and more funky than a straight four to the floor rhythm. As George Clinton said, if you’re having sex with your partner why wouldn’t you do it in more than one position? You would get bored, wouldn’t you?
8. Any newcomers you have your sights on as “ones to watch”?
I quite like Tony Quattro at the moment. He is doing some great stuff on Trouble and Bass and other labels, and we are getting him over from New York for a little Hot Cakes tour in the Autumn – so watch this space.
9. What else have you got coming up?
I’m going to do the Kazantip festival in Russia again this year, which is always fantastic. As I mentioned, we are doing a Hot Cakes tour in October and November which will be bringing the brand to a whole load of UK cities. Apart from that I’m just pushing to get more radio support for my new music and trying to keep it fresh and interesting in the studio. It’s a good time right now.

I had the privilege of rocking the Ballroom from 3.00 until 4am at the end of a glorious Saturday night lineup at this years Boomtown Fair. I had the closing set and so I took the opportunity to rock out harder and heavier than normal, less swing and more ghetto funk, soul & funk remixes, and drum & bass was the order of the day. Big shout out to Bass6 for incredible beatboxing & introduction and to Mike from Dutty Moonshine for serious crowd hype at the end. Much fun!
