20 Years Of Live Music

News June 8th, 2017

Today is the 20th Anniversary of my first ever live concert.  I’ve taken the brief break in DJ action in the past month or so as a chance to write the story of the many and varied experiences I’ve had along the way.  As long-form text isn’t favoured by everyone these days, I’ve provided it in two formats.  Either Click Here to read it in blog form:

Too Loud In ‘Ere – 20 Years Of Live Music

Or here to download it in PDF form:

Too Loud In Ere

It should be readable on any device that supports the format (most of them, these days).

Terminates Here in June 2017

News May 18th, 2017

I’ve been having a short break from DJing, working on a little side-project which will be posted here soon.  I’ll be back in the DJ booth in June, however, with no less than four sets in the space of eight days.

  • ICH WILL Rammstein Club Night – 16 June 2017 - I’ll be playing the first running of this Rammstein-themed club night, alongside DJs Vade Retro (Reptile), DJ Ays (Die Kur) and DJ Translight.  Expect plenty of R+ favourites plus various other alternative tunes, including a healthy dose of Neue Deutsche Härte from me
  • Alt Bring’n'Buy Sale – 18 June 2017 - Back at the Terminates Here starting place to soundtrack London’s alternative shopping experience.
  • DJ Terminates Here vs DJ The Scott – 18 June 2017 - And then straight over the road to play our now well-established Open Request List night at Aces and Eights.
  • Tragedy For Us – 23 June 2017 - And if that was not enough….my own Tragedy >For Us< clubnight returns the following Friday, for all your old-school EBM, dark electro and minimal synth needs!  DJ Nathan Nothing will be joining me here, plus one other DJ TBC……

Tragedy >Four<

News February 3rd, 2017

The next incarnation of Tragedy >Four< will take place on International EBM Day – yes, we are finally celebrating 24/2 in the proper fashion.  This time we have 3 Live Acts for you as well as the DJing – BLACK LIGHT ASCENSION, PERSONAL PROPAGANDA MACHINE and DJ TRANSLIGHT.  We’ll be running the event upstairs at The Urban Bar in Whitechapel Road, E1 1BJ.  Click the flier to visit the Facebook event.

Terminates Here will play INFEST 2016

News June 6th, 2016

I am also pleased to announced that DJ Terminates Here will be playing at INFEST 2016. This has long been my favourite of the UK festivals, and to secure the slot on a line-up like this is really quite special.  Anyway, if you’ve made it this far, there must be at least a couple of bands on the bill that you like, so why not visit the Infest UK Official Site and arrange yourself a ticket and some accommodation – this is going to be good!

Open Request List Night

News June 6th, 2016

We’ve had a lot of fun running our Open Request List events as a post-Alt Bring’n'Buy gathering.  We’re now going to run it as a one-off standalone and see how it works in that format.  The format is otherwise the same – turn up, order a drink and possibly a pizza and scribble down whatever you want to hear on the request sheets provided!

Tragedy >For Free< is coming….

News May 22nd, 2016

The third in my series of old-school EBM and dark electro nights.  This time, we’re making the event free entry, so if this is your kind of thing, join myself, Kriegslok and Nathan Nothing for a night of electronics done the ‘old way’.

We will be playing at The Hope and Anchor, 207 Upper Street, London, N1 1RL.  Music will start from 8pm.

DJ Terminates Here in Autumn 2015

News September 25th, 2015

I’ve got DJ sets at couple of very exciting events lined up for Autumn 2015.  Here’s what’s in the pipeline.

  • Renaissance VI – The sixth Renaissance all-day music festival will occur at Elektrowerkz  on 24th October.  As ever, a hugely diverse lineup in terms of both bands, DJs and indeed everything else.   At  some point in proceedings, I’ll be taking to the DJ booth once more to put my own spin on things.
  • Ad:Rem – I’ll also be DJing at another multi-band festival at Elektrowerkz on November 21st.  This one continues through the night, and features several acts who rarely (if ever) play the UK.  A very special event, and one that we hope will revive a number of genres rarely heard in the capital.  Before, between and after the bands, I’ll also be taking the chance to DJ some styles and bands that I seldom get a chance to elsewhere.

Note that the Irregular Mic night previously advertised has been postponed until further notice.

Other sets may yet follow, and will appear here as and when confirmed!

Dark Disco #3

News July 13th, 2015

I’ve got one more DJ set this summer.  I’m going to be guest DJ at the 3rd Dark Disco event, which is taking place at a Terminates Here favourite venue, Dirty Dicks on Bishopsgate on 25 July.  Visit the event page to get an advance sample of what we might be playing…..

DJ Terminates Here – May and June 2015

News May 27th, 2015

I’ve had a few months off DJing, but I’m going to more than make up for that in the next month or so.  Here’s where you can find me:

  • Electric Dreams – 30 May.  My first set at the long-running alternative 80s night.  Always a lot of fun, and now I get to put my own spin on it.
  • Alternative Bring’n'Buy – 7 June – Back where it all started, the daytime event which provides London’s real alternative retail therapy.
  • DJ Terminates Here vs DJ AndyRavenSable – 7 June.  Then over the road straight after for a an ‘Open Request List’ night, this time joined by Andy.  Pizza, beer and whatever music you want to hear!
  • Tragedy >For Two< – 26 June.  Back to Aces and Eights again, this time to run the follow-up to the Tragedy >For Us< event earlier this year.  Old-school EBM and dark electro pretty much all the way…..one of the last remaining places in London you can hear this kind of music.

I’ll also be playing a private booking sometime between all of this….obviously I can’t advertise it here, but  just thought I’d let you know I’m available for such events also!

DJing Triple Header – February into March 2015

News February 22nd, 2015

It’s less than a week until I begin my weekend-long DJ marathon.  I start with my own Irregular Event #05, Tragedy >For Us<, reviving the sounds of old-school EBM, dark electro and minimal wave.  And if this one works to any extent, it won’t be Irregular any more, as I’ll be running it again!

On Sunday, I’ll be returning to the first Terminates Here DJ event, the Alternative Bring’n'Buy Sale, for a more daytime friendly set.  And once again, Scott and myself will be crossing the road to Aces and Eights for an open request list event.  I hope you can make at least one of these.

If you can’t, well, it won’t be too long before I’m back in action, at Die Kur’s album launch on 20 March, which is near enough a re-union of the DJs from the last Renaissance event.  DJ Terminates Here is very much back on the road again!
