Every Monday, Miller brings you the latest news from the weekend or awesomeness in music, this week we are displaying the psycadelic madness that is Militant:
Having only been introduced @ the age of 21 to EDM, the attraction & passion was immediate & intense. For the next couple of years, he was an avid & passionate clubber @ clubs & venues like 47, 96 Degrees, Gallery, Legacy, The Sound Factory, Thunder City & Pure amongst others & during this time saw the likes of Lisa Lashes, Lee Haslam, The Organ Donors & many other top international DJ’s and producers. This in turn ignited a keen interest in DJ’ing & performing EDM.
For 7 years now the Militant DJ has been acquiring & perfecting his digital skills, & he is now finally ready to unleash an aural assault on the unsuspecting EDM community the only way he knows how to – MILITANT STYLE!!!
Having been exposed to all forms of EDM in one way or another, he has also developed other genres of interest. Having played regularly @ Hectic on Hope & previously @ Blooze Bar for the Mungus Fungus krew (Toxic Tuesdays), he has now also developed a formidable Psychedelic act as part of the Kaos Krew, of which he is one of the founding members.
He has in the last year alone played alongside the likes of Rubix Cube, Biorhythm, Zezia, Distant Touch, Archive, Chemogen, Switchcache, Killawatt, Psyguy, Parana, Fractal, Ninjah Jack, Stuart, Kozvox, Manifest, Xueno, Berns, Stereoflight, Mindless, DiscCharge, Sub-Species, Pantomine, Strain, Hysteria, Organic Panic, Cybernetix, EMP, Plusminus, Sonic, Artifakt, Tickets, Jester, Bruce, Nick Antibody, Hiyarant, Mad Hatter, Killswitch, Defiler, Ryan, The Commercial Hippies, Deliriant, Regan, DJ Mark, DJ Jos, Xatrik, Skarab & Sway, and as a result he has now set his sights on much bigger goals for the future… One of these goals have already been realised very early in 2011, when Mungus Fungus signed Militant and the other members of the Kaos Krew as Residents to their new weekly offerings at the Purple Turtle.
Known for his relentless & explosive hard beats (no matter the genre of EDM he’s playing), high octane energy behind the decks, his smooth mixing ability & absolutely exquisite timing, coupled with some insane effects mixing (and other digital gadgets), you can be guaranteed of a nuclear stomping experience & absolute bliss on the dance floor.
