LONDON UNDERGROUND UNITED on November 21st is already bursting at the seams with exclusive performances, featuring international appearances from MISS DJAX and ANGY KORE alongside rare P.A. shows from CHRIS LIBERATOR & STERLING MOSS (Live) and D.A.V.E. THE DRUMMER (Live). But there’s more…

Next up is a live set from one man, fusing two special identities that are known and loved throughout the world of Acid & Techno. He is another character that was instrumental in the birth and development of the underground Acid Techno sound that is unique to London, and has produced many anthemic floorfillers that have defined the genre.

He also helped give birth to the Techno / Heavy Dub fusion which was originally found on labels such as Highwire in the early years, and these grooves have now flourished in his style to produce many rocking releases over the years.

He will be fusing this jump up Reggae Techno sound with his trademark heavy rolling beats for an extra special set, that will be sure to help us get fresh at the weekend… Introducing the R.A.W. sounds of: GEEZER PRESENTS JAH SCOOP!

Acidtechno.co.uk & Acid909.co.uk support #Altern8XmasNo1

How would it feel to hear an oldskool hard track on mainstream radio again?  How about if heaven forbid it should penetrate the charts?  This is the ambition of oldskool legends Altern8.

Since 2000 6 Christmas number 1s have been either x factor or Popstars finalists.

Altern8 have rereleased Activ8 (come with me) to compete for the Christmas number 1.  Its not the first time such a campaign has been mounted.  In 2009 Rage against the machine re released killing in the name and managed to get to number 1 after a highly successful Facebook campaign.  This was the first song to hit Christmas number 1 spot through downloads alone.

In the same way as Rage against the machine, Altern8 have launched a facebook campaign.  As of writing this article they had 27,333 likes, and had reached number 30 with no radio play from Radio 1! which is a hug achievement in itself.  The Facebook page is here https://www.facebook.com/altern8xmas and twitter campaign is @Altern8Xmas

They have released 10 different versions of the track which all contribute to the chart position.

Why are well established acts doing this?  There is a divide within the music industry about the effect X factor has.  The bias seems to be more towards criticising the ITV show.

On  http://www.altern8xmas.com/ it says “Every year it’s the same old F-Factor dross in the Xmas charts.
Corporate cronies and their performing puppets doing cover versions, multi-millionaire international rock bands, celebrity offspring singing advert music…”

Many major names have been vocal about their dislike for the show.   Following are a few of many people who have criticised X factor.

  • Sting calls it “Televised karaoke” with contestants encouraged to “conform to stereotypes. “
  • Damen Albarn (Blur & The Gorillaz) said “creating a mindset that suggests you can get something for nothing and that it’s easy to acquire status and fame”.
  • Graham Coxon from Blur says “”being a musician is not something you can become overnight” and calls the voice and  X factor as disgraceful.
  • Moby Says it “cheapens music”
  • Calvin Harris says the X factor “”frightening stranglehold on the British charts” and shows lack of creativity
  • MC Kinky said “shows like X Factor and Britains Got Talent reduce the art of making music and practising your craft to the level of a low rent game show with huge financial backing and support. It’s a means to make money, not a means to produce ground breaking or interesting artists that demonstrate what they are feeling or are compelled to do. It’s corporate.”

Who are Altern8?  Who are the men behind the masks?

Altern8 (also known as Nexus 21) one of the most well known and highly regarded duos of the oldskool hardcore scene, known for their heavy bassline tracks.  The Duo are made up of Mark Archer and Chris Peat.   Altern8 were very distinctive when performing in their chemical warfare suits & facemasks.

Classic Altern8 tracks include “Activ-8”, “E-vapor-8”, “Frequency”, “Brutal-8-E”, “Armageddon”, “Move My Body”, “Hypnotic St-8” and “Infiltrate 202”.

They also have a fantastic live PA which you really should go to see!

We caught up with the duo earlier and they said “We are totally blown away with how much love there is for Activ 8 and Altern 8 as a group, the track has captured the attention of a new generation of ravers as well as brought back wonderful memories to the ravers from back in the day”.

Activ-8 isn’t immune to chart success.  in 1991 when it was originally released it got to number 3 only beaten by the years best selling singles Black or White by Michael Jackson and Dizzy by the Wonderstuff.  Bizarre Inc interestingly got to number 4!

Acidtechno.co.uk & Acid909.co.uk are fully behind Altern8 on this campaign as we object to the negative effect that X factor has had on the music industry coupled with very high respect for the legendary Altern8

DJ Spliffy B makes the observation “Its very difficult and in some cases not worth releasing tracks around Christmas anymore as X factor has had weeks\months of constant TV promotion leading up to the release that other musicians just cant compete with.  Acts like Altern 8 and Rage against the machine are doing the music industry a service whilst keeping good music in the public eye.  I love this track by Altern8, I happen to have 2 copies of the original pressing and I have bought all the different versions of it this time round.”

March 30th saw one of the most earth shaking parties London had witnessed for many years, and now London Underground United returns on Saturday 23rd November 2013 to provide another monumental evening of pure undiluted rocking sounds like never seen before.

In our continuing quest to bring you the most cutting edge ideas, we have found an amazing warehouse space that brings the true spirit of subversive party culture into focus, where we can direct all our energy and production into one massive area for a 10 hour journey through Techno, Acid and beyond for an intoxicating trip across sonic landscapes, shaking the capital’s foundations with annihilating rhythms.

By dedicating ourselves to one gigantic room for this particular event, we have programmed the party to guide you from the backbone of slamming grooves, onwards and upwards through brain melting dj sets that will propel you into orbit, in one carefully crafted voyage of musical discovery.

With all our production focussed in one space, we can guarantee a mind blowing display that will be out of this world, with storming Funktion One stacks, led screens and lasers all adding to the mayhem that will be pounding your senses throughout this experience.

We can promise exclusive guests who will be representing in London for the first time ever, and we are positive carnage will ensue as we push things to the next level.

Prepare yourselves London, we’re coming for you and we’re taking no prisoners…
