Lots of fun was had at the Rite Trax 1st birthday bash. Personally, as Futurhood av, I was providing vj performance alongside Joe from Damp Studios. We projected side by side all night and it was real fun. There were also artists and more providing interesting additions to the whole event. A Guy Called Gerald was the headliner – see below. He is well known for his old skool work as well as his current performance and output – we had a nice chat and a fag later on. Mistabishi was there as well, it was nice to catch up – not seen him in a while but the performance, like Gerald’s, was electric. Great support came from all the rest – Isis Moray, Cryptic, Phatworld and all the rest. Looking forward to more.
It is a vibrantly new thing – Rite Trax – combining a variety of music, presenting club nights alongside art experiences and spoken word poetry. We have all run across each of these things separately, the combination is something really very different. All of it should be supported. Why leave your senses unfulfilled. Most of us love our music and appreciate the visual and the word based forms of expression. With these events and everything presented through the website (see below), you can have all of this together or in part. On top of this when there is music there also tends to be vj performance as well (often from me).

FRIDAY 15TH FEBRUARY 2013 10PM-3AM
BRUTE FORCE PRESENTS MARK EG
TECHNO – ACID – BREAKS – BASS
@ Redhouse, 168 Solly Street, Sheffield, S1 4BB
It’s a bunch of our birthdays at roughly the same time so we thought we’d put on a banging night and have a bit of a party so we went and got this man to come down:
MARK EG (90 Min set)
Blackout Audio//Compound//Submissions//Planet Rhythm// Cluster//Hydraulix
If you don’t know who he is you have clearly been living under the sea, it’s hard to put in to words just how much of a legend this man is. He is one of the world’s most renowned and well respected dj’s and producers and has been unleashing his incredible dj sets all over the globe for over two decades with seemingly boundless amounts of energy. We’ve got him to come down to smash out an hour and a half of techno madness and we couldn’t be happier to be welcoming Mark to the Red House for what will be an incredible night. Not to be missed at any cost!!!
The main man behind Sheffield’s leading underground music night Room 303 he has also demonstrated his considerable dj’ing skills at night’s such as Subvert and Tinnitus. He is guaranteed to provide a cross section of bass heavy techno, acid infected breaks and wrong mixes generally.
Substance G is the man who brought you the long running Leeds techno nights Euphonic and Fusion has nearly 20 years of dj’ing experience behind him playing at nights across the country. Filthy dubstep, dirty techno and skull busting drum n bass will be the order of the day.
Geordie mash up master Herb Strike is a man who has been honing his skills for many years up in the bleak Northern wastes. Now let loose upon the unsuspecting land of Yorkshire he’ll mix blood curdling beats and absurd basslines, expect disgusting things to happen.
Flawbored has spent over 7 years forcing his eclectic tastes onto the eardrums of crowds at the best underground nights on offer in and around Leeds, including Sheffield’s own Room 303. He will be spinning 140 bpm wrongness including twisted breaks, wonky techno and gnarly dubstep. And, in honour of the birthday men expect the whole set to have a nasty acid aftertaste
More DJ people TBC
Advance tickets £5
