Mays event is set to be something very special as we welcome to Portsmouth's number one underground venue Old School legends The Ratpack!
The Ratpack - Evenson Allen (MC) and Lipmaster Mark (DJ) - have been instrumental in the development of dance music since the mid eighties. From London, UK they were the first DJ and MC duo (which has now become a dance music institution in its own right.) and were pioneers of the "OldSkool" concept and "NuSkool" breaks. And the self-proclaimed "longest-running DJ and MC team" still play frequently at old skool hardcore nights across the UK.
Their 1992 classic Searchin' For My Rizla (Big Giant) topped the UK dance music charts and since then, they have even been on the books of industry big boys BMG, Sony and EMI. RatPack have now set up their own entity RatPack Music, which is based upon the ethos of promoting talent within their Old and NuSkool repertoire.
They began in the late 80s with Evenson as a DJ for the Locomotion Soul sound system with Mark beatboxing over his sets. After the sound system finished in 1986 they set up Trip City in 1987 and switched to the MC/DJ set up. Also used to promote the Monday Club.
They have been rocking the rave scene since day one and been a main stage act at events including Fantazia, Dreamscape, Obsession, Glastonbury festival, Moondance, Raindance, World Dance, Vision, Peacefest to name but a few.
So let's make some noise for The Ratpack and give them the welcoming they deserve at The Barn!
Residents Jim Rayner, Alton X and Limey will be joined by Kode 5 Recordings Timeless and Mystery and a very special exclusive 1992 scratch set from UK Hardcore producer and international DJ D-Lyte. MC's Barney Rubble, UV, Ace MC and Max will be the hosts for the night.
Room two will be delivering the very best in Acid House as Voodoo Junky is joined by special guests Steve Whyte, Merle, Allister Luckett, Leon Windsor and Tom Scutt
