For our next dance we have got something very special for you all.
Something you will have likely never seen before.
-Ramjac Corporation (Reel to Reel Live Set) w/MC Milo Lapis
We caught his set at a 4am Campfire Headphase stage at Farr fest earlier this year and were absolutely blown away. We knew he would be perfect for Altered Voltage and would bring some proper old skool rave business to Grow.
Supporting Orbital & The Shamen in 1990, playing to 10,000 people at the now-legendary Sunrise, Back to the Future & World Dance raves, he knows how to work a crowd.
His recent dates come in support of his seminal 1990 acid breakbeat record Cameroon Massif! on Irdial Discs, reissued this year on Emotional Rescue. http://emotional-rescue.bandcamp.com/album/cameroon-massif
Ramjac brings with him Mr Milo Lapis, Master of Ceremonies could not describe this man any better. His voice has become known over the past 17 years to listeners of the 50-50 Sound System's roots & culture show on Resonance 104.4 FM.
After a belter guest mix & b2b on our latest radio show, we thought why the heck not bring Greater Manchester-via-Brighton whizzkid beatsmith Kalli & his melting-pot mixing approach to our cage.
During an interview with the chap himself, "sonic vomit" were the choice words that came to our founder/resident All Trades’ mind when discussing his productions. From lush, futuristic ambient to glitched out breakbeat electro, he’s “more drifting away”, than towards any sort of influence. Check that interview & guest mix from our last radio show right here. https://www.facebook.com/AlteredVoltageUK/videos/523253714782971/
He’s been brewing up a couple projects recently, namely a compilation featuring his favourite Manchester-based artists, and an EP on a revered London techno label. Keep yourselves peeled & primed for that.
-David Martin (Dimensions Soundsystem)
After dancing for 6 days in a Croatian fort, founder/resident James Newmarch thought what better way to complete our party than to get one of the hive minds behind one of Europe’s best festivals to show us what he’s all about.
This year’s edition of Dimensions Festival was filled to the brim with electro, featuring both legends & artists at the cutting edge of this sound, and that was partly down to the efforts of David.
As well as this, David is also involved with Dimensions Recordings, which just celebrated it's 1st birthday, check out their discography here. https://dimensionsrecordings.bandcamp.com/music
As always, our residents All Trades, James Newmarch & Ells101 will be laying the ground work & charging your batteries. 🔋
Underground electro, all night long.
