A fixture of the UK electronic music scene since 1994
Neil Landstrumm has released work on many of the most
recognised labels in the industry. Starting with Peacefrog,
shifting gears to Berlinsâ€™ Tresor Records he then upped
the bass-game onto arguably the UKsâ€™ greatest electronic
label of the moment, Planet Mu. Neilâ€™s first album for
Mu â€œRestaurant of Assassinsâ€ saw Landstrumm hijacking
varied influences from techno, dubstep, garage and
breaks as well as vintage 90s rave and Sheffield sounds.
He is an artist who always seems to be at the spearhead
of experimental, dancehall low frequency electronics
with his Scandinavia label signature. A pioneer of
new styles within techno, often copied and imitated
Landstrumm has enjoyed a strong pedigree within the
The success of Restaurantâ€™s ravestep sound led Neil
onto a string of sessions for the BBC,
a main feature on the German â€œSlicesâ€ DVD and relentless
live tour dates all throughout 2008, Landstrummâ€™s new
LP on Planet Mu, â€œLord for Â£39?, expands on the
steel-city industrial-rave styles set out in his
last full-length venture â€œRestaurant of Assassinsâ€.
With several cameos from such stately artists as
Carlton Killawatt, Ebola and Si Begg, the vibe is
â€œImperial British Bass Psychedeliaâ€ and all itâ€™s
stylish bleepy trimmings. Freshly imported
southern-fried krunk, and sweet island dancehall
are mixed with the refreshed roots of UK rave,
steppers, grime and garage to brew an addictively
low frequency elixir. Cult analogue gear and digital
production techniques meet in the Witness Rooms to a
useful and sovereign effect. British electronic
heritage is neatly woven into a new modern
Gerry Mc Allister has been djing in Belfast for the
last 10 years. With his first gigs in the city he
had always played a selection of music that was
strictly straight up house and techno. Since then he
has developed a broader scope of experimental music
and incorporated that into his sets. In younger days
going to super clubs like Shine and Lush were exciting
times, seeing DJs like Dave Clarke, Derrick Carter were
a real eye opener and djs who have had a major influence
on the music he plays today. But learning to dig deeper
proved to be even more exciting. Going to and playing
at nights such as Electrotoxic, Perpetual, Protocol
and Bedlam went on to be just a big as an influence.
Incorporating industrial, idm, electro, jungle and
acid into a streamlined club set was now pretty much
order of the day for Gerry. Playing at a varied
selection of nights in Belfast such as Twitch,
Ecker, Pressure, DSNT, Sound Coalition, Kalieda,
BloodSport on a regular basis and holding a
residency with Net Label giant Acroplane at their nights
at the Mynt Club in Belfast. Gerry has also supported
artists such as Rob Hall, Boxcutter, Technical Itch,
Untold and Boddika in recent years.
Bohemian grove DJ's
Rick and Johnny are residents at what is fast
becoming a legendary Manchester club night.
Bohemian Grove and their residents have did a fine
job at giving a platform to a new wave of Detroit
artists that are currently pushing things forward
and keeping the spirit alive. We're delighted to have
them come play on what's sure to be an excellent night
