Since the late 80’s and early 90’s rave culture is what inspired us in the first place in organizing “A Jungle Supreme”. We are going to leave out the jungle and drum ’n bass music for this edition and go further into the past to explore the different paths rave culture has taken us through the years.
We will kick off the evening with Stubru Switch’s very own Tomaz who will take us back to the early years of techno and rave music.
The first stop on our trip is the late 80’s Manchester scene where the techno pioneers 808 State emerged. In 1988 they released there raw acid house debut album Newbuild. A year later in 1989 they released their Second album ‘Quadrastate” which contains the huge hit Pacific state.
808 State will be represented on “A jungle Supreme” by Andrew Barker & Darren Partington who will deliver a smashing dj set.
Next we are bringing you experimental acid techno pioneer Mike Dred. He recorded for a variety of different labels, including Ghent’s very own R&S, R&S offshoot Diatomyc (which he helped running), and his own Machine Codes label, the bulk of his material has appeared on Richard James' Rephlex imprint, mostly under the Kosmik Kommando and Chimera names. Expect some harsh, relentlessly experimental acid and techno.
We will end our trip with a live set from Outlander whom you all remember from the huge rave anthem “The Vamp”. He has produced an impressive amalgam of refined and hybrid techno in the early 90's and brought crowds to sheer ecstasy playing live at raves in Europe and America. Sonic bliss for the most discerning ears.
