February sees two of America's most distinctive electronic artistes hopping across the pond to appear at Test.
Representing Chicago's south-side, the one and only ghetto fabulous DJ Funk pops his Test cherry. Rumours of Funk's demise have been greatly exaggerated and the funk-master is itching to give it up the Brenda Twitter to all the girls (and deviant boys) in the club. With an expletive-laden catalogue that runs deeper than a KFC family bucket for labels like Dance Mania, Pro-Jex Cosmic and erm Funk, Chuck Chambers is gonna get freaky with feminist anthems like 'Work that Big Booty', 'Get it from the Back', 'Pump It' and 'Bitches'.

In the basement, Convextion aka enigmatic Texan producer Gerald Hanson flies the confederate flag. We were happier than an oil baron on holiday in Iraq when Gerald made his Irish debut at Test last year, and we're honoured that he's back to perform his magical, mysterious deep techno releases on Down Low and his frontier-conquering electro, which he puts out as (Wyatt) Erp.

Also featuring in this whopper super duper yanky doodle sandwich, we have the fine icicle sounds of Irelands very own eskimo, Mick Chillage. Mick has been producing music since late 1996. His productions cover a variety of genres, techno,house,electro, IDM, ambient, dub, minimal etc, sometimes fusing all these styles in to one track. His focus is mainly on atmosphere melody & emotion & prefers to create all this from scratch rather than sampling someone else's work.
