    Tango and Ratty – 2hr 90-94 journey

    Gershwin (40th Birthday special)
    Glenn Aston (Raindance)
    DJ-X (HOG/PCM)

    For their 1st event of 2011 and to celebrate Gershwin’s 40th bday, The Source presents two legendary Old Skool DJ/producers – Tango and Ratty.

    A Hip Hop DJ since the mid 80’s, Ratty had already earned his reputation as a big name DJ by the early 90’s, playing major events up and down the country and becoming well known for his choppy style of mixing, scratching, and his selection of upfront music. At the same time, Tango (also a Hip Hop DJ and one time DMC competitor) began DJing at venues such as Shelleys in Stoke on Trent and the two soon discovered they shared very similar musical tastes, and struck up a friendship.

    Following the release of Tango’s first EP “Impact” on DJ SS’ new Formation Records imprint and the subsequent remixes, the two got together in the studio to produce the now classic “Tales from the Darkside /Final Conflict.” on their own label. A remix EP followed, featuring Mickey Finn and Bay-B-Kane, which continues to smash dancefloors to this day. Tango went on to produce several more tracks for Formation, including the reggae influenced “Project 1” and the seminal “Future Followers,” whilst Ratty released his “Taste of Things to Come” EP which cemented the pairs reputation as premier purveyors of the darkside style of rave/hardcore.

    As Ratty’s DJ work continued to flourish taking him to the USA, Europe and Australia, Tango notched up a host of classic remixes for various labels, including Moving Shadow, Suburban Base and Formation, as well as producing the club-smashing re-work of Dance Conspiracy’s “Dub War” (which received airplay from the legendary John Peel). After a brief break, the pair reunited in the studio in 2002, and a string of strong new material followed, including releases for Timeless, L-Plates, Function and Basement Records whilst Tango also produced a stream of Breakbeat releases with DJ Pulse, including remix work for Stanton Warriors (“Da Virus”) and more Radio 1 airplay, this time from Pete Tong. More recently, Tango and Ratty (along with Randall, Outrage and others) have been at the forefront of the retro-futuristic Jungle Techno revival, J-Tek with the Steel Fingers label.

    Add to this the fact that it’s Source resident and co-promoter Gershwin’s 40th birthday and one of Ratty’s last ever Old Skool sets, this promises to be one to remember.

    Those of you that have attended the previous Source events with DJ Sy, 2 Bad Mice, Trevor Fung, Nookie and Doc Scott will know what to expect – great music, great people, quality sound and lighting and above all, one fantastic vibe just like the old days!
