Julian Liberator

Julian Liberator

One of London’s underground techno pioneers, Julian Liberator helped change the face of the UK dance scene in early 1991, through his involvement in the capitals illegal warehouse party scene he helped create and through founding the Liberator DJ’s and S.U.F Collective over the following years.
Whilst their flagship acid techno labels Stay Up Forever and Cluster brought them international acclaim as both recording artists and DJ’s, Julian’s forward thinking, purist yet eclectic techno imprints, 4X4, ARTEFACT and ULTRA FUNK, have achieved both world wide cult status, and industry respect, through both his own outstanding productions and by providing the first platforms for many an acclaimed international artist, including Renato Cohen, Christian Varela, Leo Laker and Mark Verbos, alongside established world class luminaries like Lenny D. and DJ Rush.
A unique and complete artist in every sense, with both vision and verve, Julian has achieved a rare accomplishment, by creating both genre-defining productions and creating genre itself. With a passion for the avant-garde Julian does not make “easy” music for the mainstream. As a skilled percussionist, his love of rhythmical freestyle and sonic excursions to the left field are adored by those in the know and have been championed for over 20 years by such supreme taste makers as the legendary John Peel, Dave Clark and Kris Needs alike.
After an 8-year production hiatus, December 2015 saw the welcome return of Julian’s unique production talents, under his Booty Slave moniker with Patrick DSP on Emetic 026. This awesome techno bomb is currently hitting dance floors around the globe, with massive support from Slam, Dave Terrida, Perc, Funk D’Void, Mr Jones, Sawf, and Jerome Hill.
With an imminent second Booty Slave release, co written with man of the moment Chicago Loop, and studio sessions over the next month with the legendary Mike Humphries of Master Traxx and a return trip to Patrick DSP’s Berlin bunker, 2016 is shaping up to be a massive year for Julian and proof enough, that whilst form is temporary, class is most definitely permanent.
As a DJ, Julian has always stood apart from the crowd. Year’s ahead of his contemporaries, his innovative, open-minded, free form approach, has always defied the narrow minded, sub-genre obsessed, mainstream. Instead, Julian fuses all styles and rhythms that say Techno to him, hard, deep, minimal, acidic, 4/4, 3/4, broken beat. The defining criteria of interest, energy and funk, are brought together through Julian’s vast and intimate knowledge of electronic music and then skilfully crafted on 4 decks, into a wilful, sometimes challenging, but always exhilarating, journey of discovery.

Dirty Dilemma
Emma Dilemma loves to be down the front and won’t leave the dance floor all night…. So, she knows what sounds are needed to get everyone losing themselves in the music at the party! She played her first set at a house party when she was 21 and everybody loved it and begged for more. In the early 2000’s she would slam out some acid trance, hard energy and techno, and the partiers would totally have it. Dilemma played this type of music at all the major underground clubs in Bristol, festivals and house parties. She also played blinding sets at many outdoor free parties and ware house parties.
Then she moved on to some fat, squelchy bass lines by playing bad ass electro and break beat. DJ dilemma got the venue absolutely rocking and people would ask where she found such wicked tunes. In 2015 she was inspired at Boom Town Fair to buy some dark and dirty drum and bass. She likes it hard, fat and filthy, and can’t wait to play more of it at some up and coming parties in clubs and at Boom Town in 2016. Her new DJ name is now DIRTY Dilemma lol!

Acidic Saturday 30th January 2016

Yes we’re back to kick off 2016 in style!!!

Tassid

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!

Matt Acidic

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!
