Saturday 31st December 2011
What better way to kick start the New Year than having a 12 hour rave up with a stellar line up of the best acid techno and tough techno DJs at the longest standing and friendliest night spot in the heart of Brixton.
Stay Up Forever and Smash Techno are on hand to bring you the best sounds from the true London underground with a hand picked line up of genuine legends of the scene.
Line UP: Rackitt, DDR(live), Gizelle, Thermobee, Sarah Fab, DJ Redmond, Birinight, Acid Steve, Chris Liberator (morning set), D.A.V.E. The Drummer (morning set)
Rackitt is one of the true legends of Stay Up Forever the original acid techno record label, she runs the SUF bookings agency and is a real champion of acid techno where her wicked Dj skills have taken her across the world from Japan to Argentina. Her music productions for Stay Up Forever have included the awesome "Acid Music" with The Geezer and the soon to be massive "Croydon Girl" with Chris Liberator and Sterling Moss on SUF 100.
This man is the godfather of acid techno, mapping out the blueprint of 303's over hard techno trance beats for Stay Up Forever, Smitten and his own Hazchem and C.O.S.H.H. labels. Genre defining tracks such as "Unlucky Punk"
with D.A.V.E. The Drummer, "The Rabbit Names Was..." with Julian Liberator, "High Noon In Gotham City" again with D.A.V.E. The Drummer and the mighty "Mad Cows On Acid" for Smitten, have brought acid techno to a world wide audience. A Japan and Australia tour in December marks a long and extensive career as a live artist, for NYE we can expect a set mixing some of his most classic tracks with new productions made especially for the live set.
A veteran and pioneering female artist, DJ Gizelle has been spinning tunes on the London underground party scene ever since the late 80s, when she first experienced the explosion of 'acid house' dance music.She has been part of the Stay Up Forever family since the mid 90s and made her mark as resident D.j. for the legendary 'Immersion Sound System' playing every weekend on the free party scene in London. It was at this time that she began producing under the guise of 'Rebel Yelle' for 'Stay Up Forever', followed by more collaborations on other labels. Gizelle has a great international reputation as a DJ and packs a real punch behind the decks, with a crate full of the best techno music, together with a deep knowledge and deft mixing skills.
A London DJ who has been at the centre of the underground scene as co owner of the seminal techno record shop Kinetec, he has played for all the major techno acid techno and trance events such as Megatripolis, Escape To Samsara and a residency for the hedonistic Pickle parties. Now a resident for both the Fierce Sounds night in Tokyo, Japan and Rave Patrol in Brazil, Thermobee has his finger on the pulse of upfront party techno and is one of the scenes top mixers.
Sarah has been a part of the Stay Up Forever Collective since 1999, based originally in London and L.A. she was a real representative of the acid techno scene in America as a DJ and record distributor. Now living in New York Sarah is still rocking the ones and twos DJing techno.
Redmond started out as the main resident for the mighty Manik sound system in London and is the only acid techno Dj who uses hip hop scratching skills in his sets. Unique and one of the most sort after Djs on the London scene.
Co-founder of the E1S soundsystem and Smash Techno resident, Birinight started out running outdoor parties in his native Portugal which led him to move to London 15 years ago, a tireless campaigner for techno in London Birinight is an experienced Dj who knows instinctively how to rock an underground crowd.
Acid Steve's star is rising with Dj trips in Europe and as a recording artist on his own Avinit label. Steve has been a resident for E1S for several years and is now a resident of Smash Techno. A true acid techno trooper his sets are "a best of" acid techno set at a blistering pace.
