The Pimp


The Pimp came through the ranks playing the Clare free party scene of 2001, later that year he had his first gig at the Gpo Nightclub, Galway, Ireland. After that he setup a night called Outpost 23 in his hometown which led him to play various gigs around the country and also a support slot the next year for Agnelli and Nelson at Ireland’s biggest nightclub of the time called Enigma! In 2003 he began 2 sway towards the acid techno sound which was no stranger to him having first heard it on the free party scene of the mid 90’s, a massive SP23 party also springs to mind around 97/98 in East Clare!! Anyway he has not looked back since, he still plays and produces acid techno today and also many other forms of techno, house, drum and bass and hardtek. He’s been responsible for bringing artists such as Chris Liberator, Dj Ant, D.A.V.E The Drummer, Dj Tek, Dj Clodagh, Guy McAffer, John Rundell, Jonno Brien, Rhythm Technologies, Sarah Fab, Dj Rackitt and Black Sun Empire to Galway, Ireland through a clubnight called Recipe and his own night Discotek from 2005 to 2010.

MAXX has headlined and played at parties in most of the major cities around Europe and beyond, including London, Bristol, Nottingham, Berlin, Salzburg, Madrid, Malaga, Rome, Milan, Naples, Moscow, Warsaw, Wroclaw, Krakow, Szczecin, Rijeka, Rovinj, Bucharest, Cluj, Timisoara, Galati, sharing the stage with artists like Chris Liberator, Jeff Amadeus, Marco Lenzi, Mark Williams, Ignition Technician, Sven Wittekind, Boris S, DDR, D.A.V.E. The Drummer, Jerome Hill, and Boy George, to name just a few.
He runs his own label Polymeric Records, and he has recently started to work as Label Manager for Molecular Recordings, owned by Marco Lenzi. He is also doing A & R work for Techno Sessions label, owned by Ludgero Costa, and he worked for 6 years as Label Manager for Austrian label Carbon Audio, which he started in collaboration with Rene Reiter. He recently quit this position to concentrate on the work for Molecular Recordings. All of these labels are available on vinyl, as MAXX is still making a point of supporting the media. As a matter of fatcs, he is still playing vinyl only.
Not many people know that in 1996 MAXX produced and engineered a vinyl release for a project called SKY BOY on Italian label DROHM, part of big independent Flying Records, label where also huge names like Moby, Snap, Reel To Real and Todd Terry released their music. The record was a commercial success, selling in the thousands of copies, but it was not what MAXX wanted to do musically, so he went back to start it all over again few years later producing Techno.
After moving to London from Italy, where he was born, MAXX has released over 100 tracks in just over 8 years, including vinyl releases on Polymeric, Cluster, Carbon Audio, Teknic, Guild, Generator UK, Killawatts, Open Source, Techno Sessions, Interstate One, and Reborn UK, collaborating along the way with many great artists like Chris Liberator (Cluster), Sterling Moss (Cluster and Carbon Audio), Pounding Grooves (Polymeric), 3Phazegenerator (too many to mention), Hard Bart (Polymeric), Pino Lopez and Rene Reiter (Carbon Audio), Xerofill (Astral Tech) and numerous remixes for various well known artists on labels such as Martyn Hare’s Tremors Recordings (for Ian Void), Phantom Records, Tekx Records, Generator UK, Meld…
MAXX productions are played by many great DJs around the World, most noticeably by superstar DJ Richie Hawtin, who has been playing his ‘No Need For Needle’ (Carmarage Records, made in collaboration with 3Phazegenerator) extensively at parties in Amnesia (Ibiza), Cocorico’ (Riccione, Italy), Minus Showcase (Poznan, Poland), and Berlin Beach Break.
He is currently very busy working on new releases, for both vinyl and digital labels, with 2014 looking to be the best yet for his output, having already around 8 vinyl releases out, or about to be released on Polymeric, Teknic, Interstate One, Trust In Records, Interstate Colour, ADSR, and Killawatts, plus numerous digital releases on labels like Blackout Audio, Sub Cult, Dolma Records, Naughty Pills, Viral Outbreak, Aktivists, and Below Ground.

DJ Focus: DJ Nebula

DJ Nebula started playing vinyl in 2002 – at first focussing on Drum & Bass and Jungle – and quickly gained a strong reputation for rocking the dancefloors with his tight mixing skills and upfront selection. In 2004
him and several friends banded together to form the infamous Groove Bagasch Soundsystem. They started to throw some serious raves with their own huge rig in very different and often unusual locations, as well as club sessions and open air free parties,
…and till this day, there’s no intention to stop.

For a few years he was working at his favourite record store in Vienna (Bounce Records – RIP!), where he explored all kinds of electronic dance music. In 2006 Nebula fell into the amazing world of Nu Skool Breaks, but in 2009 the straigtness of the simple 4 to the floor bassdrum did it’s magic – and it was Techno, where he found new levels of madness, seriousness and quality.
His latest and quite heavy addiction is the driving sound of UK Acid Techno.
With his b2b partners in crime – Riot Paul, Many Mammut and Miss Katinka – DJ Nebula is well known for playing crazy up to 12 hours live mixes.
Over the years he was playing tons of clubgigs and at many different parties and festivals across central Europe.

DJ FOCUS: Miss Katinka

Miss Katinka

Miss Katinka


Miss Katinka, member of the austrian Soundsystem “Groove Bagasch”, is DJ since 2004. After years of party experience and inspired by the FreeTekno scene she was so much into music that she decided to have a go by herself at mixing vinyl. With a little help from her friends it didn’t took very long until she figured out what djing is all about – and found her passion in it. She began with Drum & Bass and Raggajungle – and after a while she met her longtime DJ partner and soundmate Miss Shina. They teamed up and decided to play stomping b2b sets, even with 3 turntables, called the “Missen Massacre” – a wild and energetic blend of Tekno and Drum & Bass. From there on they played in many different clubs, at various parties and on big raves in Austria, Czech Republik, Slovakia, France (Bordeaux) and Sweden (Gotheborg). Experimenting with new sounds and genres has always been a major point, so today they have all sorts of Bass Music in their repertoire, like Electro, Electrohouse, Fidget, Electroswing, Melbourne Bounce, Rave, Tekno, Jungletek, and so on… But the one specific sound that had by far the biggest impact on her is the sound of the TB-303 – and she loves Acid Techno more than words can describe. So it’s Acid music for Acid people – may it always be with us!!!

Miss Katinka – Mitglied des österreichischen Soundsystems “Groove Bagasch” ist DJ seit 2004. Nach jahrelanger Party-Erfahrung und FreeTekno Inspiration – wollte sie selbst einmal wissen wie es ist – Musik mit Platten zu spielen? Mit Hilfe Ihrer Freunde wusste sie schnell um was es geht und fand auch sofort ihre Leidenschaft. Begonnen hat sie mit Drum&Bass / Raggajungle – wo sie auch ihre langjährige DJ-Partnerin und Musikverbündete “Miss Shina” kennenlernte. Sie wurden schnell ein gut eingespieltes Team und beschlossen, meist gemeinsam – also b2b – oder auch mit 3 Plattenspielern “Missen Gemetzel” zu spielen! Seit dieser Zeit spielen sie in vielen Clubs, Raves und Parties in Österreich oder aber auch in CZ, Slovakei, Frankreich (Bordeaux) und Schweden (Götheborg). Sie experimentierten sehr viel mit verschiedenen Richtungen der Bass Musik . Sei es Electro, Electrohouse, Fidget, Electroswing, Melbournebounce, Rave, Tekno, Jungletek, usw… Aber wirklich gefunden hat sie sich im Sound des TB-303 – und liebt Acid Techno mehr als man es mit Worten sagen könnte. So Acid music for acid people – may it always be with us!!!

Description
Kenny Mulligan is a true champion for the original Acid sound and earlier European Techno. He loves to play the more deeper and raw side of Techno and Acid, and is currently into the new wave of Acid music coming out of the UK and Europe right now.
He then got his first set of Technics turntables and spent days in record shops buying the latest Acid, New Beat and Techno vinyl releases. Around 1989 he returned back to Glasgow with his new collection of vinyl and at the age of 16 was given his first DJ gig at the legendary Bat Cave (first acid house venue in Glasgow) playing at an under 18’s rave. The promoters could not believe it when they heard this young kid playing such quality music.
Following this, Kenny went on to play the harder and deeper sounds of acid & techno from Europe and Detroit. He started promoting parties for young adults and became the local link between Glasgow and London, exposing the latest dance tunes bought on his visits to London.
In 1993, he came back to live in London and instantly connected with the free party scene, hitting various squat parties and witnessing the birth of UK/London Acid Techno, following sound systems such as Virus, Jiba, Vox Populi, Insanity, Large Salad Discoteque , Spiral Tribe, Exodus Collective, Immersion and the Liberators DJ’s.Around this time, he also formed the ‘Acid Army’ crew with fellow DJ’s and artists who made it their mission to promote the more underground and heavier side of Techno.
At the end of the 90’s, Kenny took a few years out to concentrate on family life, but returned some years later to follow his passion for music and reconnected with the underground party scene. Since then he has been developing his own sound and played some storming sets at parties such as Deep Acid, Retro Traxx Festival, Pirate Club, Aurora Festival, Virus Sound System and many other warehouse raves in and around London and UK.
Kenny is Currently involved in promoting different artists and partys such as LUCID in London , VORTEKS Sound System Techno nights l in Wales and Bristol, and is a member of other collectives and helps promote party’s and plays on radios in London & around the UK.
He also runs the ‘Philanthropy’ party benefit nights, which aim to raise money for a London homeless project, bringing together like-minded DJ’s and electronic artists for this worthy cause. Further to this, he has built strong connections in Belgium and Holland, coordinating radio shows for Stationsonparticulier (Belgium) and his current monthly radio show ‘Elemental’ for Pure Radio (Holland), which has showcased some quality DJ’s and producers who play Acid and Techno , and also on the Sundays playing eclectic Chill out sets where Kenny delves into his rich knowledge of ambient and avant garde , eclectic taste in sounds far from the harbour walls of the usual electronic music he is usually known to play . Recently on pure radio Kenny Reached a personal achievement , by warming up for his life long idols KRAFTWERK . Further more now in 2014 Kenny is focusing on his own productions under the guise of Dark Art Masquerade. A Record label is also planned for 2014 and a new radio show beginning in march 2014 on the community based OPTICAL RADIO in London where he will interview guest DJ’s and Bands about their career’s & their past and present projects .

He got his first taste of the Rave scene in 1991 after attending many of the first big Raves in Scotland like Technodrome, Awesome 101 and Holocaust. He also got his first experience of the Free Party scene a year later when he went to several Spiral Tribe events including the Lechlade Free Festival and Torpedo Town.

This is what really inspired him to become a DJ and to organise his own events and free parties. It was around this time he started teaching himself how to mix on a friends set of Technics. A year later he got his first gig with a crew called Section 23 at Strathclyde Uni and a few months later he started his first club night called Vortex.

In 1997 he made the natural progression into producing his own music. He now performs a full Live Analogue Hardware Set blasting out his own brand of Acid Techno.

In 1999 he began promoting himself on the internet and this led to some amazing bookings including a Special guest DJ gig in Liege, Belgium in 2000. In 2003 he performed at a 5 day festival on an island in Croatia called 320 x 240. This then led onto two great bookings in Germany.

DJ Focus: Billy Nasty

From the man who mixed the inaugural volume of the seminal ‘Journeys By DJs’ series, gaining him entry into the Guinness book of records for being the first DJ to produce a commercially available mix CD, we still find Mr. Nasty at the helm, box of records at his feet, doing what he has done best for the last quarter of a century.

But Billy Nasty has never been just a DJ, he has enjoyed an extensive recording career and runs two record labels highly-regarded by a broad range of DJs and record buyers alike. With a career spanning 25 years, Billy continues to travel the world as one of the most in-demand DJs, lighting up dancefloors at some of the most prestigious events and infamous clubs across the globe.

From early beginnings playing rare groove and funk to his first forays into acid house during his residency at London’s The Brain Club, to regular slots at seminal London clubs such as Final Frontier, Open All Hours, The Drum Club and Strutt, to having played pretty much every Festival and club worth mentioning ever since, Billy continues to DJ the world over whilst also maintaining a residency with esteemed electronic pioneers BLOC.

On top of his DJing, Billy Nasty has also maintained a strong production presence over the years. Earlier more progressive outings included Shi-Take (with Dave Wesson) or Vinyl Blair (with Chemical Brothers engineer Steve Dub) to his studio collaborations with Gregor Tresher and Anthony Rother on Datapunk, culminating in his current partnership with Keith Tenniswood (aka Radioactive) man as RadioNasty.

In 2013 Billy relaunched his legendary techno and electro imprints, Tortured and Electrix, to critical acclaim. The debut release on Tortured was the RadioNasty ‘Breakin Bad EP’, featuring two stunning Ben Sims remixes as well as two original tracks.

As RadioNasty the pair have unleashed several tracks over the last two years for labels such as Craig Richard’s The Nothing Special and EPM including the (relaunched) Tortured debut release ‘Breakin Bad’ EP and the ‘Clave to the Rhythm’ EP on Electrix. The guys were last seen disappearing into the studio bunker, planning the next slew of releases and collaborations, set to emerge over the coming year.
