The Centrifuge label & agency showcase mix for Electronic Explorations.
Compiled by missaw in Berlin, June 2010.
The Centrifuge is a global artist collective interested in all forms of experimental and electronic music. It was formed in early 2007 by missaw and NeuteK whilst residing in Nottingham, UK. At the start it was just those two playing once a month in the back room of the now defunct Blueprint Nightclub.
missaw would play some nice tunes and NeuteK would play a tracker liveset, or live coding, or maybe hacking dance mat software to make people fall over. Simple times. Captain Chaos and Sadistician of sister label Braincore Recordings also got involved and things were fun if a little inconsequential.
Then the club got closed down, and we decided to organise events in places like London, Manchester, Leeds, Malta and Berlin. We started our free digital label in June 2008 and have put out 50 releases thus far, with approximately 100k downloads to date. 2010 has been a busy year for The Centrifuge so far, as the label HQ relocation to Berlin in January was accompanied by the announcement of an artist management & booking agency and a significant roster expansion.
Most of the tracks in this selection for Electronic Explorations are fresh cuts from our label with a few two exclusive treats from our agency crew for good measure. Hope you enjoy!
A former shepherd and one-time roommate to Richard D. James, he spent 10 years as a core part of the Rephlex phenomenon. Now releasing on labels as diverse as Planet Mu, We Me, Balkan Vinyl and The Centrifuge, his direct dancefloor assault involves such armaments as acid, disco, techno and funk.
He will be touring in support of his new LP on the Balkvan Vinyl imprint this winter.
Point B is the creation of writer and producer Richard Bultitude. Combat Recordings’ released his second LP ‘Suicide Beauty Spot’ in 2010 and this takes his sound above and beyond all that has gone before it with a stunning sonic journey that massages the synapses and shakes the hips. The sound he has perfected over the last 7 years is a slick, textured, bass rich take on Dubstep/2-step hybridised with cerebral electronica.He is putting the finishing touches to his 3rd album so his live sets are jam packed with exclusive new material!
Tudor Acid is the main creative alias of Richard Wigglesworth, a Bristol native and senior acolyte of the church of ACID. His fully live hardware sets have wowed dancefloors across England and his nascent label Tudor Beats has just launched a new website.
Kill Ref aka Ale Signore is a Rome-based musician and DJ specialising in electronica, glitch and hard electro. With a killer 4/4 EP emerging on Labrynth Records he is set to take dancefloor destruction to the next level.
Back for their 2nd session at legendary venue The MacBeth in Hoxton, cutting edge electronic collective The Centrifuge are throwing a charity fundraiser in support of MacMillan Cancer Support. The buckets have arrived, the bunting’s wrapped and all the music sorted for a charity do that feels as good as it sounds. This is a win-win people. Come down and get that warm fuzzy glow going on, and even if you can’t please spread the word. Positive karma guaranteed!
There’s a crack team of electronic musicians on board the Thursday night altruistic rave vessel: not least living legend RADIOACTIVEMAN touching down for an electro session whilst 303-abuse pair TUDOR ACID, late addition THE DOUBTFUL GUEST and mystery live guest DJ EARWAX are gonna turn the tempo up and get sweaty. SCHEME BOY is in effect to bombard, pummel and amaze and The Centrifuge’s latest signing VAETXH showcases his mind-melting bass/glitch fusion. Your DJ team for the evening are null+void blog lady KIERSTY and The Centrifuge’s resident misanthrope MISSAW.
Donations are being taken on the door, and inside too. Plenty of surprises on the night too
To celebrate the release of Acid Futures Vol.1 and the forthcoming release of Vol.2, we’ve an hour long guest mix this week from Tudor Acid, containing material from both his outstanding ‘Merri Portland’ lp and the forthcoming ‘The Wrong Side Of Day’.

You can listen live on www.brap.fm 10-12pm UK time, or via the brap.fm archives afterwards. The show is also available via iTunes and will now be uploaded to Mixcloud too
