Mad Racket returns to the Bowlo in 2011 with a massive night featuring two of Berlin’s most respected DJs and producers. Tom Clark played at Mad Racket on his first few tours to Australia in 2003 and 2004, and again in 2007, and has always impressed with his DJ skills and ability to hold and move a groove. As a native Berliner, Tom has seen all the changes in his city’s highly influential scene, and has managed to stay relevant and in-demand for many years, holding down residencies at such institutions as Berghain/Panorama Bar, Watergate and Club der Visionäre. Tom also travels regularly to clubs and festivals across Europe.
Guido Schneider is a producer who will be known to those in the know. Producing electronic music since the very early ‘90s, he moved to Berlin in 1996 and has continued to carve a strong reputation as a producer of quality technoid music for the floor and for the head, releasing on highly respected labels including Poker Flat, Cadenza, Tuning Spork and Clark’s Highgrade, among others. Guido has also collaborated on several projects, notably his Schneider & Radecki project with Sammy Dee of Pantytec, and remixed a slew of artists, including Plastikman and Steve Bug.
These two terrific Germans will be joining the four fresh Racketeers – Simon Caldwell, Ken Cloud, Jimmi James and Zootie – in the Bowl-O-Sonic Ballroom.
