Tribal Pilot – Rave Groove

This mix begins by climbing relentlessly into the night sky, the lights on the ground growing farther and farther away, until it reaches cruising velocity. Once above the clouds, it hurtles through patches of flickering moonbeams, starlight, and cosmic rays, adjusting altitude to atmospheric conditions. Clouds dissipate while it zooms out over open water, before disappearing over the horizon just as the glow of the first hint of sunrise becomes visible.

Well that’s the gist of it… it could go anywhere as soon as the wheels of steel get moving. So come join the ride! Cheers 🙂 x

10pm-11pm : JUSTIN TROOPER


*** TROOPER ***

DJ Trooper is an electric force to be reckoned with. His broad musical expertise spanning three decades comes alive in his mixes, bringing the party vibes alive. Never failing to smash the techno and old skool, it’s rave time when Trooper’s in the house.
Trooper has contributed to the legacy of the London party circuit, playing at club nights such as Smash Techno, Stay Up Forever 100, Stay Up Forever after parties, Philanthropy, Braingravy and Lucid, and alongside DJs such Chris Liberator, Aaron Liberator, DDR, Geezer, Gizelle Rebel Yelle, Rachel Rackitt, Sterling Moss, Birinight, DJ Ant, Jerome Hill, Thermobee, Tassid, A.P, OB1, Austin Corrosive and many more.

On to top all of this, Trooper has recently returned to the studio, writing tracks with DDR, Steve Mills and The Geezer. His tracks have been released on the legendary ‘Hazchem’ label, Abusive 303, Project 303 and Project 909 with more tracks ready to go. Keep your ear to the dance floor and listen out for Trooper’s unique energy and sounds.

Over the past 10 years, Trooper has gone from raver on the dance floor to playing on many sound systems including Freebase, E1S, Malfaiteurs, Manik, Storm, Hackney Sounds and plays regularly on the Stinky Pink, Hub and Krysis rigs as resident DJ storming the dance floor with his own take on Acid Techno, also enjoying pushing the speakers to the limits on various rigs at Frenchtek dropping the beats that captured his heart all those years ago. But with Trooper’s personal history of dance music and broad musical knowledge, you can also hear him playing a broad spectrum of sounds such as Old Skool 91/92 Rave, Hardcore, Jungle, Drum & Bass, Progressive House, Acid House, Breakbeat and Electro.

But Trooper’s journey with dance music began in 1991 when he was just 16 years of age and was taken out by some older mates to legendary raves such as Elevation, Dance 91, Raindance, Fantazia, Yikes and Interdance, as well as Spiral Tribal and Bedlam sound system parties on the underground free party scene.

The next year, he was introduced to mixing vinyl on the 1210’s by DJ SDR, owner of Shoebox Records. From that point, there was no turning back.

In 1994, Trooper started getting involved with the local music scene and began working at Ruffhouse Records in Slough, who ran Menace sound system.

Always up for a party, he was given the title nickname ‘Trooper’. He was always the last man standing, shortly establishing his turntable skills as ‘DJ Trooper’ on the underground party circuit, playing Jungle and Drum & Bass at parties in London and the South East.

Music House in Holloway Road, London, played a big part in Trooper’s life. Top Drum & Bass DJ’s went there regularly to cut their latest tracks onto dub plate fresh for the weekend raves. Trooper got involved distributing the ‘Ravescene’ magazine and writing party reviews for raves such as Telepathy, AWOL, Roast, Innersense and Jungle Fever.

Trooper and fellow music comrade, DJ SDR, started the record label ‘Freestyle Flava’ in 1996, experimenting with different styles and beats in the studio under the guise ‘Point 2’. They produced some rockers including ‘Wait 1 Minute’, which was featured on Tony de Vit’s ‘Live in Tokyo’ album. In the studio, they wrote Trip Hop and Broken Beats inspired by Ninja Tune club nights at the legendary Blue Note in Hoxton, London.

After taking a few years out at the end of the 90’s, Trooper returned to the dance floor in the new millennium and got involved with the Hard House scene. The hard beats and vibes reignited the fire in his rave heart, but something was definitely missing until he discovered the underground London squat party Techno scene and from that point it was full steam ahead.

So keep your ear to the dance floor and listen out for Trooper’s unique energy and sounds.


The Rebel Yelle show is recorded live on the first Friday of the month 9pm-11pm and then repeated every Friday same time during the rest of the month and on Wednesdays 5pm-7pm. Enjoy!

The Rave Yard, Boomtown 2015

Boomtown Rave Yard

Boomtown Rave Yard

Set right on the outskirts of the Old Town, on a track way passing the eerie woods, sits a rickety church surrounded by a large run-down grave yard. If you dare to visit, it will be here that you could discover the spirits of miners, gold merchants and rebels all partying hard amongst the flickering lights, banging sounds and reverberations. If you’re unlucky enough you might even catch a glimpse of the spirit of Nicholas Boom, the founder of BoomTown who was discovered dead at the bottom of the gold mine many years ago.

Beware this is a dark place; you do not want to get lost just follow the techno beats until you locate lots of strange misshapen silhouettes dancing in the moonlight. If you’re looking for a place of rest and quiet reflection, then don’t bother coming to this church as in these woods you will find the gates to another world! The under-world…

For the festival goers who are just getting started when the clock strikes twelve, look no further than The Rave Yard. With a massive line up and some of the best of British underground DJ’s offering bass lovers everywhere a huge variety of banging beats and foot stomping tunes. This year the Rave Yard boasts a carefully honed sound system that will wake the Dead!!!

Don’t ever forget the ‘The Rave Yard’ is where TECHNO is definitely not DEAD! It’s just gone under-ground!!! An abundance of wicked base lines layered with sinful synths and immoral ear splitting 303 noises which all jump out of the speakers!” Welcome to ‘The Rave Yard’
