History of NEON.
N/asty, E/lectronic, O/bscure, N/oises.......
|NEON| was born in the dark depths of East Village, formerly Medicine Bar's basement situated in Shoreditch, London in June 2007. Held every 2nd Friday of the month it became a hot spot for clubber's who were searching for something different. There we held many successful parties that always blew the roof off. Since then we have hosted at other cool venues such as the laid to rest KEY, Kings Cross, MC QUEEN, Shoreditch, BARHOUSE, Chelmsford.
In may 2008 we secured our new place of residency Sunrooms, in our homeland of Southend, Essex. Held every 2nd Saturday - |NEON| continued to succeed as one of the best Electronic house nights in Essex. Gaining respect from clubber's who were the true music heads. Each month we twisted the rule book and threw it high giving you the best in fresh talent. By making each month different, we aimed to please you with our resident DJ's who always put up a great show, and carefully selected guest artists/DJ's.
We've have had the likes of SHANE WATCHA (Zombie Soundsystem), KANIO (Italio Business), ROSSKO (Fuse), DANNY RAPER (KeToLoCo), and many more big underground DJ's grace our decks. If you've been to any of our parties you'll know what we are all about...If you haven't, shame on you...you missed out BIGTIME! So it's a good job we're back to do this all again.
We've always had a crush for intimate places, and now Old Hat hosts the perfect setting for our party. It's time for the next chapter in the |NEON| history books.....

RUSSELL CATEN (Veryverywrongindeed / Neon)
Russell has been a DJ for over 6 years playing at Essex's biggest events such as KLIK, Mass, Too Damn Glam and many more independant events in the UK & Ibiza such as Zombies Ate My Brain, The Gallery, EGG resident, The Cross resident and many, many more.
He is now a one to watch Producer of 2013. His mechanical, industrial, organic techno sound has proved popular, with his E.P ''KILL THE MIDDLEMAN'' being signed to the very respectable label Veryverywrongindeed (Out 30th May 2013) where he sits comfortably amongst some very credible artists on the label such as Deepgroove, Max Cooper, Timo Garcia, Andre Crom, the late King Roc and many more. He also has other releases on large labels such as Stripped Digitial, Stripped Off, Sounds Of Juan and more to see in 2013.
His DJing career has gone also from strength to strength, and has had the pleasure of playing alongside the likes of Tom Demac, Glimpse, Clive Henry, Maya Jane Coles, Huxley, Laura Jones, Sam Russo, Anthea, Ben Pearce, Oliver $, Nikola Gala, Geddes. Also he has supported the following artists at other independent events such as Pete Tong, Eats Everything, Phil Kieran, Matt Tofrey, DJ Hell, Reboot, Stephan Bodzin, Kosheen, Format B and many more.
Equipped with his promising production skills, a huge library of soon-to-be released tracks, and his fantastic DJing ability which never fails to ignite a crowd, it is fair to say we can expect big things from Russell in 2013.
MOOJAA (Unrivalled Music / Stripped Digital / Sounds Of Juan)
When Sasha played the Moojaa remix of Paula Pedroza and Jonny L's - Anjos, as the first track of his set on the BBC RADIO ONE 500th Essential Mix live from Circus, Liverpool, in the Summer of 2010, things elevated for Moojaa as a producer having spent 20+ years in the Industry in various capacities, spanning from selling records to promoting gigs and DJing himself.
Since his debut remix on Stripped Digital back in 2008, Moojaa has since featured as a remix regular on Stipped Muzik Club (Stripped Recordings, Stripped Digital and Hype Muzik), Endemic Digital Inc (Endemic Digital, Unrivaled Music & Sounds of Juan), Divert Records, Light Records and Brainkat Records, receiving huge support from the likes of Sasha, John Digweed, Nick Warren, Sven Vath, Matt Flores, Roger Sanchez, Robert Owens and more.

Towards 2010, Moojaa made his mark in Ibiza (whilst planning his debut album) playing exclusive & spontaneous gigs at venues around the Island including Pacha & Savannah, before returning to the UK and becoming one of the residents of the Endemic Digital Inc Tour 2011, playing at The Gallery (Ministry of Sound), Cafe 1001 and Freq alongside the likes of Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren and Anthony Pappa.
Whilst having a wealth of DJing experience across multiple genres based on his own varied musical tastes, Moojaa has worked hard in the studio to perfect his own production sound & style to achieve his personal aim to release music in every Beatport genre that he can, which is demonstrated throughout his existing and future releases.
