*** MICKY FINN Ft Mc Slitcy & Bounce***
Micky started DJing in the late eighties and became well known with the advent of the Acid House movement in South London. He was given the name Micky Finn because of his build by mates and friends in the scene. In the early nineties breakbeat and loose jungle techno was filling his record boxes as he travelled the length and breadth oh the UK. Such was the demand for his skills at this time by huge events all around the country he was even strarting to catch private planes between gigs. Micky's production talents started off with Biting Back - She's Breaking Up then partnered Gavin and Claudio for Urban Shakedown - Some Justice.
Now Micky travels the world and throws down his vibe in countries like Japan, USA, Australia, Holland, Ibiza, Germany, Finland, Israel and France to name just a few.

"With over ten years in the game, playing the north and south of the UK, Darkus knows how to bring the noise, Dark by name Dark by nature: welcome to the Darkside."
*** Ann D ***
"Ann D started Dj-ing in the time honored way, playing a weekly 3 hour show on a pirate in the late 90’s, not because she woke up one morning wanting to be a DJ but because it was the only way to get the sort of show she wanted to listen to. After years of going to blue's clubs, festivals and dancing her way through many music styles she had a vinyl collection that ranged from Prince Fari, Alpha & Omega, Beefheart, The Velvet Underground to The Orb, A Guy Called Gerald, the dirtiest English & German techno, breaks and DnB - that’s the kinda radio show she wanted to hear. Bizarrely and despite not having decks or being able to mix a cake, after about a year she was booked to play out, at which point she thought I’d better buy some technics and learn how to mix. Since then she has gone on to play all over the UK, Europe & Mexico playing with everyone from Rootsman, Richard Kirk, Aphex Twin, Tayo, The SUF Liberators & The Orb on their tour, she was resident at a night called Headcharge which often made the Mixmag top ten best nights in the UK before the council closed the venue down, she’s guested on numerous Radio shows both here & in Berlin, appeared on Channel 4, produced the soundtrack for a photographer’s book launch, featured in documentaries, written articles for various music mags and is soon to soundtrack a short film. She still continues to play a weekly show, on a legal station now - SCR Radio and thinks she’s lucky to be able to share her tunes."

Newly appointed Fez Club resident and Tectonic Sound boss man Thomas Taylor AKA Tippa has been gathering momentum in the steel city for some time now and supporting some of the undergrounds biggest talents. His ability to take to the decks at any hour and please the ravers has been proven time and time again. Put him behind the decks anywhere, in front of anyone and he’ll just get on with doing what he loves. Whether it’s back to back with Ben Pearce in a sold out Fez Club, spinning at Sankey’s Manchester, or in a tiny basement filled by 5 people on Ecclesall Road it really doesn’t matter he will entertain those in attendance! Expect that futuristic bass driven house sound and prepare yourself for a set that will send you on a mad one from the start.
