Disscut

Last time we had him over he destroyed it
Real Techno German Style

After seeing the I.T.F. World Dj Championships, Disscut started as a DJ in 2001.
Whilst people of the same age were interested in football or mountain bikes, Disscut's focus was always on his music.
At the age of 15, he performed for the first time in a public discotheque.
And now with almost 30 years, Disscut had various gigs all over Germany, but also in England and Belgium.
In his hometown, he is lovingly called the 'Techno Viking' among colleagues.
Techno is his big love and with a lot of passion he continues his career to the top.

Disscut is not just a DJ, he is also a very passionate producer.

Meanwhile, he can proudly look back on countless releases on big and small labels like IAMT, Addeepted,
nuOn Music, Toxic Recordings, Radiate, Pure Dope Digital, Black Square Recordings and Oxytech Records just to name a few.

His well-known track 'Music Is My Drug' was personally supported by Spartaque himself and many other. Also together with Bad Panda he has released a nice ep on the Frankfurt label Pure Dope Digital.

Disscut was also represented several times in the Beatport and Traxsource Top 100 charts.

On top of all of this Disscut also owns and runs the label Vinyllover Recordings, on which he predominantly represents underground techno.

Reg

Reg

One of the originals, Reg played all around the north west uk overthe past 20 odd years. this guy brings the party to any event awesome dj on any format all round legend.
I have been DJ-ing now for about 28 years. I was always into hip hop as a teenager but going to my local club the Pleasuredrome in Farnworth UK and watching the likes of DJ legend Sasha made me want to get involved in the House music scene. I started DJ-ing professionally at a club called Monroes in Great Harwood, near Blackburn, which although only small had a great reputation across the North-West in the early 90s for its house music and atmosphere playing alongside BOWA and TRIPLE X and guests such as NIPPER , STU ALLAN & WELLY . I left Monroes after 4 years and I moved onto Maximes in Wigan, working with an agency called Hypnotic promotions. Being with Hypnotic allowed me to play at such venues as The Hacienda (Manchester), Mr Smiths (Warrington), Park Hall (Wigan) and The Dry Bar (Manchester). After a couple of years I moved onto Federation in Blackpool, playing house music along side DJs Scott Bond, Alex P, Danielle Davoli and Smokin Jo to name just a few. I have since played at a multitude of clubs around the North of England and Europe alongside DJs Dave Morales, Sonique, Graeme Park, Joey Negro, DJ Disciple, Jim Shaft Ryan, Oliver Lang, Lottie, Mark Luvdup and Tim Lennox. I then co-promoted our own club nights under the name Souled Out. Our regular monthly events took place at various venues in the north west including sankeys soap also a new venue in london called the copyright club nr London bridge. Also a project called BACK TO FUNK which is organising parties playing upfront funky house etc.. I also got involved with an events organisation in Amsterdamnon a regular basis playing at there events with djs including Jorgensen, Marcella, Lucien Foort, Martijn Ten Velden, Fedde le Grand and more... I also play a slower funky house disco vibe similar to that of artists such as the unabombers, moodymann, trus-me and greg wilson . .
In the past few years I have been involved in the old skool scene playing regular for Rejuvenation (Leeds and Corfu) and SOS Ibiza and teamed up with my good friend Luke greenhalgh AKA DJ LUKSTA under the name DUN n DUSTED and we can be seen at the the Indian summer and other upcoming events ...

Prole

Prole

Acid and rave are the sounds that built the house of Prole. His productions and DJ sets have the very essence of the vibes as the fundamental heartbeat.

Prole (UK) leans to the 303 heavily along with breakbeats, bleeps and piano riffs. The ’88 to ’92 Chicago & London era is the sweet spot of influence from him. However, pushing the boundaries of this iconic era to bring a “current affairs” attitude on it is what he’s all about. In his eyes, this is what’s needed and is what he implements. You’ve got to know the rules to break them!

Producing has always been at the forefront of what he does, having been making tracks for the best part of 20 years. Managing label and publishing services for record labels including KONNEQT, Motion, MVMT, Afrika Motion, Paraiso, MonkeyFish, JULA, Beta Rebels, et al; he decided to start his own label after finishing a track in 2016 which he couldn’t place anywhere else. The track in question was ‘Acid Cult’ and thus Acid 606-61 was born.

Acid 606-61 has grown and grown since birth seeing huge support from some of the originators within the scene including Fatboy Slim, Danny Rampling, B.Traits Clarkee, Mark EG, Posthuman, Robert Armani, Geck-o and many more.

Not only does Prole flourish in the studio and running record labels, he can capably tear up any dancefloor. He has had the pleasure of playing at select, underground events from back in the day all the way through to the early 2000’s. Playing a good slice of the more underground clubs all the way down the South coast, he has also broadcasted on the airwaves of the pirate stations along with hosting his very own show on Brighton based Trickstar Radio.

From the plethora of experience he brings to the table, it’s no wonder Prole can not only hold his own, but can always stand solid behind the decks and take the crowd on a journey.

His radio show has since found a new home on Underground Kollektiv Radio where he has also featured at their showcase events around the UK.
