Acid Techno Boat Party – 11th June 2016

11TH JUNE ACID TECHNO

11TH JUNE ACID TECHNO

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”.

Announcement: Miss Djax @ STAY UP FOREVER & HYDRAULIX present: LONDON UNDERGROUND UNITED

Miss Djax

Miss Djax

Stay Up Forever Crew have announced a new DJ/producer to their lineup. A trailblazer on the worldwide stage, and an important supporter of Techno and Acid for over 25 years, contributing massively by releasing the sounds of Chicago and Detroit into the European market and helping spread their message over the years. Her DJ & live sets are legendary and she is quite simply an icon of Techno & Acid history, standing fast across generations of dance music that has been and gone. One of the innovators who deserves maximum respect, give it up for The Acid Queen: MISS DJAX!!!

THE ACID QUEEN
Saskia Slegers, better known as Miss Djax, or as many say ‘The Acid Queen’, is living proof that age doesn’t necessarily always brings peace. For 25 years now, she has stomped on the face of techno and acid with hard punishing beats and radioactive sounds. The ferocious releases on her Djax-Up-Beats label helped Chicago and Detroit sounds gain foothold in Europe, as Djax Records was one of the first European labels to put out techno in the early nineties. Now 25 years later Djax can look back at an impressive catalog of over 400 releases!

ROOTS AND START OF DJAX RECORDS
Miss Djax started her DJ career at the age of sixteen. Her musical roots can be traced back to disco, funk and new wave. Being open minded and always on the hunt for the newest dance music she played a unique blend. Everything in her life was about music and at the age of eighteen she formed the band ‘B-System’, a new wave band in which she played the bass guitar.
Having worked in record shops for many years, Saskia met a large number of promising artists whose music never got released because, according to the Dutch record-companies, it was “not commercial” enough. That triggered her to start her own label and in 1989 Djax Records was founded. The first release was an album by the Eindhoven based hardcore hiphop band 24K (No Enemies, 1989). Only a few months later the first 12″ of Eindhoven producer Stefan Robbers was released on a new division of Djax: Djax-Up-Beats was born……

DJ OF THE YEAR
Miss Djax had her international breakthrough when she played at the notorious MayDay rave in Berlin 1992. With her hard and uncompromising acidtechno set she made a great impression at the promoters on-site. As a consequence she played the mainstage at all big international raves and festivals from that day on. One year later Germany’s leading dance magazine Frontpage declared her ‘DJ of the year’. In the following years her name was always in the international top 10 rankings.

CHICAGO AND DETROIT
In that same year (1992) Saskia went on a trip to Chicago and Detroit to meet her favourite producers in person and to see with her own eyes were it all had started. In Chicago she visited the famous Warehouse club with Armando, went to Trax Records, DanceMania, DJ International etc. while in Detroit she hang out with Carl Craig and Alan Oldham and visited all relevant clubs and labels there too. It was a great experience and after two weeks she went back home with a bag full of acid and techno tracks from producers like K-Alexi, Felix Da Housecat and Paul Johnson. Djax-Up-Beats became the first European platform for the producers from Chicago: a bunch of new talent like Mike Dearborn and DJ Skull as well as the old skool heroes like Steve Poindexter, DJ Rush and Spank.
Saskia started a cooperation with the legendary Warehouse label from Armando. Some of the most sought after Chicago house classics such as Work That Mutha-Fucker and Circus Bell’s were remixed by top-producers like Hardfloor and became a massive underground hit. Till today these records can be found in the record boxes (or USB stick) of many of the world’s top techno deejays.

LOVE PARADE
Four years in a row, from 1995 to 1998 she took part in one of the major techno happenings: The Love Parade in Berlin. In 1998 Djax even had the privilege to start at pole position! Many people will remember the 20-metres long red/silver Djax-Up-Beats rocket with 20.000 watt of acidtechno terror on board! Miss Djax also played two times, in 1996 and 1998, at the Love Parade end manifestation at the Victory Tower in front of millions of people.

NEDERHOP AND BREAKBEATS
Besides the worldwide respected releases on Djax-Up-Beats, Djax Records is also known for being the first company to release Dutch spoken rap-music, later called Nederhop. In 1991 Saskia discovered The Osdorp Posse that soon became the most popular rap-band of the Netherlands! In 1995 they won the Dutch Popprijs for being the most innovative Dutch band! Also ABN and Spookrijders were two of Djax’s successful nederhop bands.
Being open minded toward various styles of music Saskia founded two new divisions in 1997: Djax-X-Beatz and Djax-Break-Beatz. Both divisions gained success with Grumpyhead and Head First who both performed at the famous SWSX music convention in Texas in 1998. Dance (bigbeat, drums ‘n bass, triphop) combined with pop and rock. With these two new divisions Djax lifted up its position at the Dutch music market and both in 1997 and 1998 Djax Records received the Dutch Award for being Best Record Label.

ARTWORK
Not only the music but also the looks of Djax Records have always been important to Saskia. Since 1991 she is working with Alan Oldham, the famous illustrator from Detroit. Till today Alan made hundreds of beautiful illustrations and five Miss Djax comics for Djax-Up-Beats. Saskia also worked with Zender and the famous American illustrator Ed Repka, who is well known for his Megadeth album covers.

DJAX ANNIVERSARIES / AWARDS
In January 1999 Saskia received the Dutch Award ‘De Veer’ for her effort and work for the Dutch music industry. Later that year Saskia published her 10th Anniversary book ‘Djax Records The Power of The Underground’.
In 2004 Miss Djax celebrated the 15th anniversary of Djax Records by releasing her first mix album with 24 of her favourite Djax-Up-Beats tracks and 2005 saw the release of Miss Djax first artist album ‘RAW’ that included floorfillers such as ‘Sick of U’ with vocal support by DJ Rush. The album contained a new Miss Djax comic, again by the hand of Alan Oldham. Miss Djax promoted her RAW album with a European live tour.
The 20th Anniversary of Djax Records (2009) was celebrated with the release of the DVD ‘Underground Nation’. Compiled by Saskia, it contains 90 minutes of exclusive footage and is a true testimony to club culture. In conjunction Miss Djax proudly recieved a Gold Record for 1.3 million records sold in 20 years of Djax Records and a Gold Record for 40.000 albums sold of Afslag Osdorp.

THE X-FACTOR
Miss Djax’s second artist album ‘Inferno’ got released in 2008. Both singles of the album, ‘Hell’s Bells’ and ‘Headbangin’, became Record of The Month in Raveline Magazine. ‘Still Dominating’, together with Human Resource and ‘Stereo Destroyer’ in co-operation with Marshall Masters became international hardtechno anthems and rocked the dancefloors all over the world. Furthermore she mixed and released the hardtechno album ‘Kick Down Volume 1’. In the same busy year Saskia was asked to take place in the jury of the famous TV show the X Factor but she decided that a tv career was not her ambition (yet).

DJAX IT UP
In the nineties Saskia toured with her Djax it Up events around the world. In 2009 she decided to bring this event back to life and hosted Djax it Up stages at Ground Zero, Q-Base and Free Your Mind.

PET TRIO AND TECHNO CRUSADERS
Early 2011 Miss Djax formed a cooperation with the Brazilian Pet Duo under the name Pet Trio. Their single ‘Dance or Die’ set fire to many dancefloors. In 2012 Miss Djax recorded the album ‘Techno Crusaders’ together with the Canadian Patrick DSP and in 2013 they released the album again with remixes by Mark Archer, Chris Liberator & Sterling Moss, Pacou and many others.

2014 – 25th ANNIVERSARY
Last year Miss Djax celebrated the 25th anniversary of Djax Records with a European Djax it Up Tour. She released an old school acid vinyl (From Within) as a tribute to her loyal fanbase and made a remix for Chris Liberator and Sterling Moss. In that same year she also recorded some new tracks at the famous RichMusik studio. She released ‘Overdrive’ and ‘Forbidden Dance’ both accompanied by an amazing video. With these two releases she announced her new sound to the world and both got great reviews in Clublife and Fuzz Magazine.

2015 – NEW ALBUM
In October Miss Djax will release her new album (vinyl and digital) with a new Miss Djax comic by Alan Oldham. The album is a journey through Miss Djax favourite sounds and ranges from old school techno and fat acid to modern EDM influences. A unique blend between the past and the future by a true originator.

CHRIS LIBERATOR (Stay up Forever) at FALMOUTH RUGBYCLUB

Perhaps the most loved and respected Acid Techno DJ of all time

It is fair to say that Chris has probably played more squat parties, underground raves, technivals, festivals, club nights, and parties worldwide in his 18 years as a D.J. than any other person alive, and is still completely dedicated to the music and the scene he got involved with when he started doing parties with the other two Liberators, Julian and Aaron back in 1991.

He has played all over U.K. and Ireland, Europe, Japan, U.S.A., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, South Korea, South Africa, Colombia and many other places. Chris was the first Acid Techno D.J. to play in Brazil, Venezuela and Poland and was instrumental in starting the movement in these countries which he still visits regularly..
