DDR is a Techno producer and live performer from London, UK. He was instrumental in defining the London Acid Techno sound in the early nineties whilst running with the FullOn and Bedlam Sound System.
DDR was the first guest artist to appear on Stay Up Forever Records & has been one of their most prolific artist to date. He is responsible for the old school infused Hazchem Records and the Punk Techno sound of COSHH label. DDR also fas many appearances on seminal Acid Techno labels Smitten, Cluster Routemaster, etc
His performances are distinct, improvised, real time remixes of classics from the back catalog fused with yet to be released material and music that is written only for the live gigs.
Rackitt’s involvement in the dance scene has spanned well over a whole decade. An early introduction to acid house in the late 80’s and Rave in the early 90’s soon turned into a passion and almost immediately she started to learn to DJ. 1996 saw her play her first gigs on the free party scene with support from Acid Techno stalwarts, Aaron and Chris Liberator, both of whom introduced her to the Immersion sound system crew. It was only a matter of time before she was making a right old Rackitt! Over the next few years she was invited to play on other various reputable sound systems, such as Virus and Bedlam, before moving on to join the London squat party collectives Underground Sound, Restless Natives, Manik and Malfaiteurs making a name for herself as one of the most talented and versatile free party DJ’s. Her style, Hard Edged Techno/ Acid Techno, has taken her throughout the country playing clubs, festivals and the more infamous Teknivals as well as having the opportunity to play a selection of gigs overseas in Europe, Asia, Middle East, North America and South America. Aside from the traveling, Rackitt has also taken the opportunity to make her mark in the studio by recording tracks on such imprints as Powertools, Maximum Minimum, RAW and Pure Noise as well as remixing popular Acid Techno anthems such as D.A.V.E. The Drummer’s, ‘Build Up The Pressure’ and Ant’s “This Shit That Shit”.
