INTRODUCING OUR MASSIVE DOUBLE HEADLINERS
FC KAHUNA & DEADLY AVENGER!
★ FC/KAHUNA (City Rockers) - EXCLUSIVE PARTY SET!
In the late 90's Dan and a group of like minded friends started a little club with an eclectic music policy (The Big Kahuna Burger) which built up a devoted following, gave Fat Boy Slim his first DJ gig, hosted such luminaries as The Chemical Brothers, 808 State and David Holmes and earned across the board accolades (notably club of the year in the UK's The Face). DJing at the club got FC Kahuna remixing, recording and doing DJ tours with bands such as The Charlatans UK. Soon, boredom set in and the search for new challenges lead to a 2 pronged offensive ... setting up a studio to make an album and a new residency at London institution Turnmills, the night was called Headstart.
Headstart was a truly groundbreaking club experience.. providing an alternative fruit to the contemporary basket of the time. Supporting electro, techno and disco... as well as FC Kahuna, Headstarts residents included Dave Clarke, Josh Wink, Andrew Weatherall and Justin Robertson in what can only be described as a blue print for the electro techno scene of the 21st Century.
As for the album, 'Machine says Yes' featured landmark tracks such as 'Mindset To Cycle', 'Glitterball' and 'Hayling', and sold 50, 000 copies worldwide. Such music featured in films such as Layer Cake, Riding Giants, Six Feet Under, CSI.... The albums success also lead to the creation of a live FC Kahuna outfit , playing shows at Leeds/Reading, Coachella, Roskilde, Bennecasim and Pukklepop, followed by sold out UK tour with Royksopp.
With the album ready to go, the chose to reside their DJ talents at their label (City Rockers) club night - the night was '21st Century Bodyrockers'. Each month there was one guest... residents were FC Kahuna, Damian Lazarus, Erol Alkan and 2 Many DJs. Nuff said.
Since then Dan has been touring the world DJing.. taking in Mexico, Japan, Australia, USA, Spain, South Africa amongst others.. as well as crafting the follow up to Machine Says Yes (the end is in sight), throwing in the occasional remix (particularly worth a mention 2009's Noah and The Whale '5 years Time', Boxer Rebellion 'semi automatic' (currently being span across radio one) remixes, 2 mixes for rising starts Chew Lips and Florence and The Machine remix for 'Drumming' (Dan produced the Florence material which lead to the Mercury nominated No 1 album artist getting signed) and producing tracks for the just released 2nd album from Leeds based band The Sunshine Underground album (a non album FC Kahuna / Sunshine Underground collaboration 'From The City To The Sea' currently available as a free download through thesunshineunderground.co.uk).
★ DEADLY AVENGER (Illicit) http://www.deadlyavenger.co.uk
Composer, producer and international DJ, Damon Baxter aka Deadly Avenger is back! One of the first Fabric residents and contributors to the Fabric Live series of CD mixes, not to mention a key player in UK dance music, Damon Baxter aka Deadly Avenger has rocked more parties than you’ve had hot dinners. Respected and held in high regard by peers such as Fatboy Slim and Jon Carter, Damon has spent the past few years creating incredible soundtracks for television and film, most notably for the US crime drama series C.S.I. – the most successful TV show ever… apparently!
Deadly Avenger, first burst onto the dance music scene back in the the early noughties, starting out releasing records through J Saul Kane’s Depth Charge label before setting up the Illicit record label, releasing a string of raw, sample and beat heavy tracks in the mid 1990s.
Deadly AvengerSupported by the likes of Fatboy slim, Propellerheads and Jon Carter, Damon was heralded as the pioneer of ‘Big Beat’ touring the world and setting dancefloors alight, he eventually settled nicely into a Fabric Residency alongside Unkle and The Wiseguys, which lead to the release of two of the genres biggest records, ‘Evel Kneivel’ and ‘King Titos Gloves’.
But It wasn’t until the first remixes were commisioned that the true Deadly Avenger sound would emerge. A sound that the indie glitterati embraced, bands such as Travis, Manic Street Preachers, Elbow, and The Charlatans were all seduced by the overly emotional strings, blended with dirty beats and enigmatic arrangements. A sound that developed fully with the re-imagining of Bill Conti’s “Going the distance” into the form of ‘We Took Pelham’.
It was this piece that was to open the doors into the world of music to picture. The opening track from the critically acclaimed ‘Deep Red’ album, was to set the tone of things to come over the next few years. With music being used from adverts to movie trailers, sports shows to drama’s, Deadly Avenger has now gone full circle and is ready to unleash music once again.

LOVE RS xx
aka DJ RYU
ryu comes with wine in hand
his followers smile, what a wonderful man
but lo, their joy will not last long
for ryu is vengeful and ryu is strong
the chalice they offer to hold their mead
shatters to pieces and flesh does bleed
