ELECTRIC AVENUE LINE UP 2022   

Check out our ‘Electric Avenue’ dedicated DJ & Dance Music area with a fresh line up! Appearing over the weekend DJs (A-Z): –

Altern 8

The story of legends……..It all started back in 1988, when Mark Archer cut his musical teeth with Rhythm Mode D, he then moved on to form Bizarre Inc. in 1989. His next project in the early 90s, Nexus 21 soon led to the formation of a new act….…and Altern 8 were born! 

Altern 8 were a joyous mix of some rather eclectic influences. It sounded so simple and fun and yet the music was deceptively complex. Altern 8 went interstellar with a bunch of hit singles and the album Full-On Mask Hysteria, which hit number 10 in the charts. For a while the unlikely lads from Stafford were jetting around the globe with the likes of Moby, as Altern 8 captured the imaginations of ravers everywhere.

Eventually, the house lights came up on Altern 8 and Archer and Peat went their separate ways. Archer then started to ply his trade as a DJ; something he enjoyed just as much as making music. 

Today, Archer can still be seen in that famous luminous mask as the resurrected Altern 8, although the name Mark Archer pulls crowds just as big, as seen in some massive performances at festivals such as Glastonbury, Bestival and EDC in Vegas amongst countless others..…Mark Archer has been making and spinning, the finest dance music for an incredible 30 years……It’s going to get emotional.

Boskins

It’s fair to say that Boskins has been around a bit!! He was an early pioneer of the 90’s free-party scene and honed his skills in the days when rave music ignited. Born selector and curator, his sets now blend house, techno, garage, breaks, electro and more to create a thumping dancefloor. All bangers, no mash!
