1982 - Linoleum, spraycans and the "Return of Captain Rock" illegally transmitting from a battered ghetto blaster, evil underground influences causing a lifelong addiction to vinyl junkie Simon Brown aka The Dexorcist.
By 89 the sound of Brown's brand of audio weaponry could be heard deep beneath the ground, educating those that dare dance in art of acid music.
Within no time at all our devious DJ could be found, hidden inside bass bins of darkened clubs, hatching and plotting with new found conspirators known as the Fear Teachers. Embarking on an outdoor adventure armed with records, speakers, turntables and a generator these reckless rave rebels roamed the great British countryside infecting many innocent souls with the spine chilling sounds of acid house, techno, and electro from deep within a forest under a strobe lit moon.
As time grew older many former Fear founders fell foul to the evils of mortgage and marriage yet the devoted Dexorcist remained true to the cause, speaker surfing, sleep deprivation, vodka and vinyl, burning any bass bins that dare stand in his way.
Our twisted electro engineer soon reformed and regrouped to regenerate a new force in urban audio technology. Firing on all cylinders, the Kore Dispension Unit wreaked havoc through the warehouse wastelands and forbidden fields of London and Europe, broadcasting industrial dance music leaving a trail of burnt out bass, frazzled frequencies and broken beats.
The time had come for the Dexorcist to perform the merger of his mind with the machines of music so off he mutated into a maze of mutilated rhythms emerging every once in a while under different disguises, the Program Crusher for New Skin, speaker bashing breakcore as the Bombdogs on experimental dance label Audio Illusion, mashed up beats for Urban Disturbance and using his own imprint Running Scared and Control Tower to implant vocoded robot frequencies, there seemed no end to this creature's musical mayhem.
And indeed there is no end, as the nights grow longer and the streets get darker the Dexorcist grows stronger, joining forces with suburban scientists of sound to prepare an onslaught of audio invasions using electronic dancefloor persuasion.
This rare old school rave set from one of the finest DJs around is gonna be something special and not one to be missed!
Kanji’s first major release on Rag & Bone Records in 2008 saw him grab the attention of Mary Anne Hobbs and Drop The Lime with its fresh, energetic mix of bassline, techno, dubstep and chiptune influences.
Continuing to evolve his sound with a wide range of releases and remixes on labels such as Coin Op, Trouble & Bass and Tigerbeat6, to name a few, Kanji’s brutal remix of 16bit’s dubstep anti-anthem ‘Chainsaw Calligraphy’ brought a new wave of fans into the mutant bass sound.
Kanji Kinetic began experimenting with different tempos and genres, most notably drumstep with 2010’s ‘New Era’ EP, while remaining in high demand for live shows all over the globe.
In early 2011 Kanji Kinetic started the Mutant Bass Records netlabel with free monthly releases from himself and other heavy bass producers.
Expect an intense and energetic set from the bass overlord!
Support as always from Dave Shades, McGarvatron, Data Rape and Tommy.
