Yes we’re back to kick off 2016 in style!!!
Tassid comes from Portsmouth UK. He got into DJing after his early experiences at free parties and squat parties, where London Underground techno and acid techno was the main sound. He fell in love with the music in those early days and has been into that sound ever since!
His main influences are the Stay Up Forever Collective including Chris, Aaron and Julian Liberator, D.A.V.E the Drummer, Guy McAffer, Rowland the Bastard, Ant, DDR and Lawrie Immersion etc, but Tassid has also taken influence from some good Schranz producers such as Boris. s and Arkus.P.
Tassid has been making techno for fun for many years, but in 2009 he upgraded his studio and is now a full on producer in his own right.
He is the co-founder of System Rejects vinyl label alongside Austin Corrosive, Olly Berry and MK 303, and he is the owner of Skuxx digital label on 909london.com. As well as his own labels, Tassid has releases on other labels such as, Corrosive Records, Cluster, Cluster 909, Stereo Chaos, Interstate One, Impact UK, and Acid Test
In recent years Tassid had been getting back into DJing and is continually pushing his own style of London Underground Techno and Acid!!
Bad Boy “Pete”
Pete (“Bad Boy” Pete) got into the sounds of London’s Pirate Radio Hardcore from 1992, after which he got his first set of decks. From then on, his musical journey evolved through early Jungle Techno, Acid Techno, and Hard Techno, all the way to fast BreakTek. He started his own label Getafix Records around 2002, while also releasing on some of the respected London, American, and Polish Techno labels.
His current projects include Anarko Dub Tekno, and Champion Breaks, showcasing his productions and collaborations with cutting-edge artists to release Hard Dub Techno, Breakbeat Tekno, and Acid Breaks. In all his tracks, you can still hear, and feel the power of the inner city tensions, that gave birth to our proud musical heritage!
DJ Acidic, AKA Matt Dawes, first started mixing soon after attending an illegal rave in 1994. Being totally inspired by what he saw and heard, Matt was quickly hooked into the scene and purchased a pair of turntables to begin teaching himself how to mix on vinyl.
Matt’s career to date has been heavily influenced by the London Techno scene with Acid Techno being his favourite style to DJ, although he is well know across the dance scene for his mixing skills and some amazing sets consisting of Breaks, Psy Trance, Electro and House music.
Matt’s career started to take off in the year 2000 when he was given the opportunity to showcase his skills at Lunacy. Since then he has been booked by numerous clubs in the South West, London and Sheffield, and is well known for his unique ability to seamlessly blend one track into the next while never losing sight of the effect his mixing has with club goers. Consistently perfecting his technical skills and creating some fantastic sets with various effects sees him regularly whip the crowds up into a frenzy.
Following his success at Lunacy, Matt quickly gained a residency spot at Oblivious as well as securing regular sets at Acid Test, Homegrown, Species, Cyberdog, Beats Reality, Underground City, Tribe of Frog, Antiworld, Wonka Vision, Excessive and Shroom to name but a few! A massive highlight in Matt’s DJing career has to be performing on the Arcadia stage at the Glade festival in 2009.
In between mixing and music production DJ Acidic is also the founder and promoter of ACIDIC, Bristols leading bi-annual underground techno event which takes place at AREA 81, The Packhorse. It’s one of Bristols best kept secret venues run by the Hells Angels. The ACIDIC nights are legendary and are now running into their 14th year with the next event planned for April 2016 with a line up as fat as they come.
As if this doesn’t keep him busy enough, DJ Acidic is also the creative founder of The Rave Yard @ Boomtown Fair. The Rave Yard started as a micro venue with a 5K Sound system hidden away in the woods, but due to the popularity of the music that Matt is pushing and the DJs that he is booking, this is all set to change. 2015 will see Matt working in close collaboration with festival creators to pave the way to create the largest Acid Techno stage the UK’s festival circuit has ever witnessed!!! With a line up in 2016 which will blow away the cobwebs and be a treat for all old skool rave & techno loving enthusiasts.
When not performing, he spends his spare time in the studio creating his own music… with collaborations due for digital release later this year with the likes of Acid Ted on Acid Test. Matt is also starting to collaborate with the other DJs and producers and we hope to see more tunes released in 2016 with the likes of Cyber Steve and Dynamic Intervention ….Matt is also starting a label under the name of Rave Yard Records so what more is there to say other than watch this space….. Hope to see you on the dance floor!

Cyber Steve’s dj career started back in the early 90’s with the free party sound system Cyber Sounds. Based in Holland he was influenced by Dutch/Belgium techno & London acid techno scene. This saw Cyber Steve take his free party sound system all across Europe dj’ing at hundreds of parties in the free party scene.
During the late 1990’s Cyber Steve progressed the parties into the club scene with the launch of a night called Cohesion. The night was to be a big hit turning into one of the UK’s leading Acid techno nights. Cohesion hosted a variety of events showcasing Acid Techno alongside many other genres including Techno, Drum and Bass, Reggae and Punk. He was also heavily involved with the creation of Underground city, a collaboration seeing the likes of Cohesion and Skankadelic join forces to showcase some of the UK’s leading underground dance music.
Cyber Steve has produced many tunes over the years on some leading underground Techno labels such as the Cohesion record label Coh.uk Recordings, Wah Wah, Stay up forever Remixes, Snap n crackle, BR909 and many more.
Watch this space for future releases as 2015 see’s a return to the studio as Cyber Steve is planning a re-launch of the Cohesion record label with tunes already written for other labels and downloads.
Cyber Steve will also be releasing under the name K.A.S.R. (Killing All System Rules)
There we have it i hope you can all come and show your support and help us get rid of the January Blues and get 2016 rolling in style!
Big Love Matty A x
