Event details

Sat 17 Nov

DJs: Ovre, Chris Headcount, Faro

Live: Ceephax Acid Crew (live 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; for the final party in our 2018 Acid Rave series we invite the almighty Ceephax Acid Crew.

Ceephax Acid Crew (often simply credited as Ceephax) is a British acid house, and drum and bass electronic musician named Andy Jenkinson. Jenkinson is also known simply by the pseudonym Ceephax, which is a pun on the BBC teletext service Ceefax.

Ceephax’s music between 1998 and 2003 took the sonic styles of vintage Roland drum machines TR-909, TR-606, Roland synthesizers TB-303, SH-101, Korg MS-20, and a Roland MSQ-700 sequencer. This music was recorded onto a 4-track cassette tape deck. The music was released on vinyl records and cassette tape. This primitive Acid House aesthetic and methodology countered the growing popularity of the computer music and compact disc releases of the time.

Ceephax’s live performances are the stuff of legend and we can’t wait to have him make his debut at Patterns this November.
