Wise Up Get Stupid with Freeformation’s master of stupid - Sharkz and Next Generation’s head honcho Brisk as they join up for a 2-way bang-fest that will make you know why you love the cAAAke. This back-to-back has never been heard in London before so makes sure you don’t miss out as we all know this is going rock your socks off.
Kevin Energy v’s Marc Smith
Freeformations master of jam Kevin Energy Team Raves it up with the skirt…cough…sorry kilt-wearing Smithy for a jam-packed session of banging Hardcore! Leave your spam at home as this is all about the jam and no stone will be unturned as these boys always kick it off in fine Freeformation style whenever they play together! What’s the matter this jam too spicy for you??
Ephexis Live PA
We all know these boys rock with their very own brand of hardcore so prepare your self for an intergalactic ride of epic proportions. Get ready to blast off on a twisted warp-driven set of the most forward thinking tunes the scene has to offer. Hyperspace 10 is definitely on the cards here so you will need to see if you can borrow the force from Darth Vader as you will need it!
We love bringing new DJs to London and we are proud to present the capital’s debut of Lethal Theory’s top banana. Joey informs us he will be performing a different set form his usual DJ sets as Freeformation is the kind of place where you can play different from the norm and we all know Freeforamtion is far from normal!
So let’s give Joey a big London hello and welcome him to planet stupid! It’s going to be lethal so lets have a riot!
Vibes and Livlee
Vibes and Livelee are synonymous for their great sets and sense of humour. Vibes is coming dressed as Björn Borg fresh from Sweden after winning the Björn Borg look-alike competition. Livelee is coming dressed as a cricketer - howz that for completely fu*king stupid! Freeformation can’t wait for this set as these boys will blow the roof off so prepare yourself for the Vibes and Livelee show – Game, Set and Match!
Robbie Long vs Stormtrooper vs Ethos
Bounce bounce wherever you may be a 3-way bounce from the bounce factory! Prepare yourself for a pogo stick of Hardcore for a special bounce-athon that will get your jam shaken not stirred!
Thin n Crispy and Future Dance can even make your nan bounce - it’s a bounce fest! Boing boing!
K Complex vs Eryk Orpheus
We all know that these two are demons in the studio so their set will be more upfront than Sam Fox’s hard nipples. Two of Freeformation’s stalwarts will be making you knock one out with the freshest selection that Freeform has to offer. The badger has informed me that this is his favourite set of the night and it’s going to be milking time!
Mark Ashley vs Nemesis vs Arkitech
Witness the battle of the silly hair extraordinaire we all know that Ulrikatech has a silly hairpiece. Can Mark and Mike match up to this mad raving barnet extravaganza? No short back and sides please, bring your wigs to get digs so we can see who has the most stupid hair for this set!
MC’s Sharkey, Odyssey, Knight, Rizla Dizla, Ethos, Obie, X-Cell, Special G
Kevin Energy vs Technikal
The Elevate mix master touches down with the best producer finalist at the Hard Dance Awards Mr Technikal to close the Elevate room. This is going to be a ripper of a set but only the head-strong are going to be left standing!
Hard Trance in abundance with no rules or boundaries so let’s get elevated!
Goodgreef’s top resident jumps up with a Hardstyle boom fest that will have you bouncing off the walls. It’s all good and the only grief you should have is if you don’t get into the room as this Freeformation debut is going to be a jam-packed mess!
We can’t wait neither can the marching badgers army!
Greg Brookman vs K Complex
Battle of the Gingers - Round Two! Phil apologises for not being here for the set as he was at the G.I.N.G.A. (Ginger Institute for Non Ginger Affliction) conference giving tips on how to live as a full-time Genghis! This set rocked off last time and with a new arsenal of strawberry blond remixes to boot we know its going to be banging so let’s celebrate this red-headed extravaganza.
MDA & Spherical
These two boys certainly know how to jam! The Oblivion Records duo have been caining their wares at all the top London parties including Frantic, Logic and Innovate. Their floor dropping tunes have appeared on the Elevate album so we thought it would be a fitting tribute to their talent to come to Freeformation and show us their most recent and gut-churning floor monsters!
Hoopz is one of London’s fastest rising jocks. Hoopz’s sets at Frantic and residency at Hard South in Brighton amongst others, is testament to this guys ability behind the decks. An hour of floor filling Hard Trance anthems will have you spinning around like a wrong’un so let’s do the hoopla da hoop with one of Freeformation’s favourite jocks.
Nik the Kid
The South Wests Hindsight big cheese touches down all the way from Devon with his own breed of dirty Hard Trance. No holds barred here from this chap as he fuses up a blend of Hardstyle, Acid Trance and UK Hard Trance that will have you begging for more. Not bad from a guy who can’t read or write and that has trouble parking in London as he drives a tractor and is always dripping in cream!
Danny Tappenden vs Bilbstar
Total Mayhem comes to Freeformation to bang out UK Hard Dance that will get u chewing your face off! Freeformation knows that Total Mayhem rocks as these two DJs are no strangers to kicking parties into action so come and join them get $$$$ing totalled and lets cause some mayhem as these boys are going to rinse it out! Bo Selectas!
Mark Ashley (Handbag Hard House)
Handbags at dawn, it’s an Elevate show down with our very own Mark Ashley who has brought a hand bag with bricks in it to whack u round the face with. Prepare yourself for a trip down memory lane with all the best Hard House classics from over the years that will have u donking like a trooper. So get your pout on, get your rocks off and get your bag out!
NEC Demon & Batman (Disco Hour)
Yes we have secured the services of Batman and are flying him in from Gotham City for a one off back-to-back special with the NECs very own Green Man.
Holy wakamoly! Will good defeat evil?? Will the evil Demon gas the rave out with the evil rave balloons and smelly farts?? Will Batman save the day in his awfully bad tights?? Or will you just dance like tits for our alter-ego Disco Special??
Mark Ashley (Classic Ibiza Trance)
We thought about asking Mark to play his Barry Manilow collection for something different but the Freeformation regulars vote with their feet and the Classic Trance set has been one of the highlights of the Jam Room and one of the most requested sets of the night. Lets be honest most people thought the Manilow idea was a load of Barry White! So rock out… we’re takin’ Ibiza to you.
Loopy (Nu Skool Breaks)
Loopy from Bonkerz Records fame returns to show you a full-on meaty Nu Skool Breaks session of madness. Trust me peeps this boy can scratch and I aint talking his nuts here but you are going to go nuts when u hear this chap play!
Vibes and Livelee (The Sanctuary Classics)
Some of us were lucky to be at The Sanctuary in its glorious hayday and we all know someone who’s rave cherry was popped there so lets get ready to rumble to two of the scenes funnies and coolest entertainers as we all roll back the years and rock off to all the anthems that used to make us gurn like a wrong’un!
Tekno Dread (History of JAL Showcase)
Just Another Label’s Tekno Dread brings his massive collection of music to Freeformation for a one off special that will have you creaming your pants! JAL is synonymous with quality Hardcore and when you see the list of names that have come from this stable you know its going to be a badger banger! Let’s get rocking to this set and hear some music that will always stand the test of time!
Kevin Energy & Sharkey with MC Suicide (Dream FM Reunion)
Your Freeformation promoters touch down with this classic back-to-back special. Anthem bashing is on the menu for this set and for starters its going to be a delicate mix of tunes from the early Dream FM and Rhythm Station days. Don’t eat too much as the main course and dessert will make sure you pig-out on a feast of jam-packed Hardcore delicacies that will have your taste buds kicking.
Barry K (Best of ‘94 Set)
Barry is one of Freeformations residents and never failed to let the crowd down. He’ll play a 94 special that will whip you up into a frenzy, shooting all the classics from the South Coast Golden Era!
He shoots, he scores, it’s a goal which is better than anything Pompey will be doing this season!
Andy Vinyl & Matt Style (‘90 – ‘93 Old Skool Classics)
Andy ‘beaker’ Vinyl and Matt ‘The Dread’ Style are part of the fixtures and fittings at Freeformation so much so that they are coming dressed as a sofa for this mix! Get your big box and little boxes out for this one as its going to be a corker. YOUR NAMES NOT DOWN YOUR NOT COMING IN as these TWO BAD MICE are SUPER SHARP SHOOTERS and will get EVERYBODY IN THE PLACE ACTIV8ed so take a ride with our FAMILY FOUNDATION and BLAME yourself if you miss it coz CHARLIE SAYS ALWAYS TELL YOUR MUMMY BEFORE YOU GO OFF SOMEWHERE hopefully it will be at Freeformation!
Hosted by Batman & Robin
