M.R.E.U.X – 30 minute guest mix on Brain Food Radio – 25th of October – 11.30pm to 1am (AEST)
M.R.E.U.X. is a worldwide recognised character of electronic music. He started his DJ profession influenced by punk/industrial, the style of the 1980s when the world witnessed the development of the first electronic instruments such as synthesizers and drums analog machines. However, in the late decade he came across the new beat/acid house movements; hypnotised, he decided to take it on the stages and in the clubs where he worked.
The following years have been inspirational: he built his own studio and opened his new label, the Blumoog Music. Blumoog Music is his ambitious project which ended up making him work with the major and historical exponents of the electronic movement of the entire world, from Steve Stoll to Terrence Dixon, passing through Beroshima, Edit Select, Alexi Delano and Aubrey and Dan Curtin.
His concept of music is quite simple but has plenty of meaning: “Fuck business, save vinyl”.
MAKATON – 30 minute guest mix on Brain Food Radio – 25th of October – 11.30pm to 1am (AEST)
Steve Bailey – aka Makaton – has been at the forefront of techno releasing peerless, influential and experimental techno music since 1998. Bailey is from Birmingham in the UK, and along with Surgeon and Regis pushes an upfront and raw sound. With his heritage rooted deeply in the heavily industrialised ‘Black Country’ area of the Midlands, he operates in the dark and industrial landscape.
Makaton’s unique production style leans heavily on dub, industrial, no wave and minimalism concepts. Bailey’s experimental approach has seen him introduce new ways to represent techno and leave outdated approaches to the genre at the wayside.
Makaton’s compelling live set electrifies audiences and has seen him bolster techno in the UK, across Europe and in Asia playing at the world’s top clubs while also supporting burgeoning local scenes. He has played at Fabric in London, House of God in Birmingham, clubs in Leeds, Manchester and Glasgow, as well as Concrete in Paris, Berghain and Tresor in Berlin, Contact in Tokyo and Constant Value in Seoul. Makaton’s live sets range from deep to industrial and are always sonically challenging.
