ACID RAVE: BILLY NASTY (ACID SET)
Born in the 80s with a Roland TB-303, acid house swept the nation as a social movement and anti-culture revolution, institutionalized as a golden-era for music and free spirit in the UK. Fast forward almost 40 years and its influence in today’s scene is still going strong. In 2018 we invited Ceephax Acid Crew, Felix Dickinson, Jaime Read and a our residents to guest on the series, we had so much fun that we’re carrying it on into the new year with the legend Billy Nasty as our first guest.
Billy’s illustrious career has its roots in the birth acid house which led to him being at the helm of the hit you where it hurts dancefloor electro and techno labels Tortured and Electrix Records. During their time they released the likes of Cari Lekebush, The Advent, Bass Junkie and Phil Kieran filling the record bags of those DJ’s looking for that harder sound, people including Dave Clarke and Laurent Garnier. From early beginnings playing rare groove and funk to his first forays into acid house during his residency at London’s The Brain Club, to regular slots at seminal London clubs such as Final Frontier, Open All Hours, The Drum Club and Strutt, to having played pretty much every Festival and club worth mentioning ever since, Billy continues to DJ worldwide and hold a title for being a imitable record dealer.
