A patchwork history 8 – feedback, a drum and bass night

Posted on

feedback

Part of my history, indeed a large part of relatively recent history for me as a visual performer was doing the visuals for feedback – Shefield’s premier drum and bass night. It was held @ the Corp – as it is known here – the Corporation nightclub in central Sheffield. I had been a drum and bass head for some time, although I can say that I have somewhat moved on in terms of my main tastes in music these days – I have left behind my early middle age. I still do like some of the stuff produced, but I remain a greater lover of the lighter ends of dnb – intelligent, liquid, the smoother and more rolling, melodic ends of the genre than the harder, darker, rougher ends preferred by many of the younger crew. As always I tend to always be the oldest participant in any event – unless, of course it is some pensioners night out – not there yet!

It was fun doing it all – creating the animations, the video flyers, filming bits and pieces of each club night, creating bespoke text animations for each performer, doing something new for each, often having the general palette of the visuals follow the flyer and poster designs. Paul and Little G are still friends of mine – the promoters.

The night itself combined both local talent, including very often the well respected local MC – E-LL, as well as the top talents of the national dnb scene.

It really would be nice to get back to doing more of this. I love to perform – whether as a DJ or a VJ. Sheffield and the North listen up!

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!!!

———————————————-

MUMBLIST
Room 303

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
Euphonic//Fusion

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.

———————————————–

HERB STRIKE

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
Re:Wired

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
