DJ Setlist June 16th, 2017

Returned to the DJ booth at The Lounge/Nightclub Kollis at ICH WILL – the first Rammstein-themed London club night.  Technical issues resulted in my first set being extended by an hour, plus a little extra at the close of the night.  A quite amazing night all being told – Here’s what I played.

Renaissance 2017

DJ Setlist April 23rd, 2017

The Renaissance festival returned in 2017 in it’s new home of The Lounge (aka Nightclub Kolis) in Archway.  The festival is a celebration of all forms of alternative culture, with art exhibitions, comic books, video clips and life drawing all featuring on this occasion, though the musical elements still occupy much of the day.  There was a double-ended stage setup indoors (RAM and TWIN stages) and a small performance area outdoors (ARCHERS stage), and no less than 8 DJs filling in the gaps between the various performances.  Here’s my contribution.

Tragedy >Four<

DJ Setlist February 24th, 2017

This was the fourth edition of my Tragedy >For Us< event, and also the first Terminates Here promoted event to feature live bands, with Black Light Ascension, Personal Propaganda Machine and DJ Translight all playing live sets (I recommend you check all of them out!).  DJs Nathan Nothing and Kriegslok also returned, DJing between the bands and Nathan also joining me to play the afterparty.  Everyone involved did a brilliant job – it really couldn’t have gone better,

The timing of my sets and the audience meant my own sets were a little more ‘populist’ than normal, though still keeping largely to the music policy.  As the event was also a celebration of International EBM Day (24/2), there were a higher-than-normal number of Front 242 tracks in the set.

Set 1

Front 242 – No Shuffle
THX – To Travel
Frame Of Mind – Heart Beat
Skinny Puppy – Smothered Hope
AutoDaFeh – Divided We Fall

Outro: Darkmen – Photographic

Bleak Halloween Album Launch

DJ Setlist October 31st, 2016

I’d played in this venue before as part of Reptile, and I’d played plenty of slots supporting Bleak and Die Kur, but for Halloween 2016, it all came together to form the 100th DJ Terminates Here set.  A line-up featuring 5 live bands, performance poet SP Howarth, an album launch for Bleak, a debut airing of the lead single from the rock musical ‘Rasputin Rocks’, and it was my job to glue it all together muscially.  Here’s how it went.

Boston – Smokin’
The Zombies – Time Of The Season
Johnny Cash – I Walk The Line

<Soundcheck pause>

Nirvana – Come As You Are
Soundgarden – Black Hole Sun

Ice Ages – Endless Circle
Freudstein – Live This Lie
Velvet Acid Christ – We Have To See, We Have To Know
Leæther Strip – Halloween Theme

Laibach – Mama Leone

(Note: The management requested that due to the late hour, the evening’s outro was to be low-key in nature – this did give the perfect chance to finish my 100th set with the same song that opened my 1st set, nearly eight years ago!).
