Line-up /Mr C
James O' Connell
& Residents Liz Edwards & Rochester
Don't count your chickens, but this may just be Kerfuffle's biggest and bounciest Easter parade ever. It's gonna be a big bonnet showdown featuring seasonal headwear, a prize for the best physical interpretation of festive re-birthing and a motley collection of the people best qualified to put a pair of tunes together and make them sing. Just like Kinder surprise. It's sure to be a sweet, a treat, and something to play with.
Mr C (The End, Superfreq)
From front man for the Shamen, to head honcho, resident and co-owner of London's legendary underground techno club The End, Mr C has helped put London at the epicentre of the underground dance music cosmos. He's up there with all the most influential and omnipresent people in dance music. He's conquered Ibiza and his Superfreq parties rock. To think he once broke his arm kicking a pigeon en-route to a Kerfuffle â€“ but that's another story.
Murf (Subterrain, Klick Klack)
A resident at the infamous Subterrain night which he held a residency at The End since it began. Murf is the man behind a London's techno institution that left more than a few of us institutionlised. His own Klick Klack parties have brought rare talent like Aril Brickha to these shores and he's forever hopping over to Tokyo to satisfy his massive fanbase and his love of Japanese food. He's a techno archivist, superb music raconteur and he can turn a pair of decks into a dangerous weapon.
Affie Yusuf (House of 909, I Love Acid)
According to Peter Wohelski, Label Manager, US Beatport: "Affie is a UK house music pioneer whose productions helped define the sound of English deep house music in the 90's." He launched Ferox Records with one of his earliest releases and, along with Trevor Loveys as House of 909, he's crafted some of Kerfuffle's best loved anthems. He's still putting out consistent quality, producing alongside the likes of LFO, Ben Simms, Luke Vibert and Paul Mac.
He's been Colchester's Mangled resident DJ for the past 20 years, played at the End and had some banging releases on Plank and Surreal These days you'll hear Dutchie whipping the dancefloor into a frenzy at Freekie & Fump and Freqklash parties.
He's been hosting his own Underground Dance Music internet show for years where he played alongside such luminaries as Billy Nasty and Miles Sagnia. He's now co-promoting the hugely popular What's not to love? parties and making some filthy dirty acid sounds in his studio. Expect plenty of melon twisting 303 business.
James O'Connell (Supremedance, Whipped)
He's resident at Whipped and graced the decks at Freekie Festival, Pacha and Wiggle, with a weekly radio show on Supremedance and probably our youngest Dj yet, which keeps the vibe everevolving. James knows what makes us move and he's got the tunes to prove it.
