RELIVE THE SOUNDTRACK OF YOUR YOUTH

Mr C

Richard West aka Mr.C was born in London in the late 60's. He started MCing in London clubs aged 16 & soon earned a reputation as a fast talking vivacious rapper working with LWR radio's Ron Tom, Jasper the Vinyl Junkie & Jazzy M. Mr.C then hooked up with Colin Faver & Evil Eddie Richards to became resident rapper at the legendary Camden Palace in London, going on to MC for Colin Faver on the then illegal pirate radio station Kiss FM. Mr.C went into the studio to record his 1st house track with Eddie Richards as Myster-E which was released in August 1987. This inspired Mr.C to become a DJ to learn more about his beloved House & Techno music so in September 1987 Richard took to the decks. Mr.C has since organized, promoted & been resident DJ at: Fantasy ('88), Base (Dungeons '89), Release (91), Harmony (92), Drop (93), Cyclone (94), Vapourspace (94 & 95), Flavour (The End 95 & 96), Subterrain (The End 95 - 2002), Superfreq (Worldwide 2002 - Present), Super Disco Freq (LA 2010 - present). Mr.C was also resident DJ every weekend (Friday & Saturday nights) at the legendary RIP parties at Clink Street in London throughout 1988. It was here that Rave Culture as we know it was truly born, inspiring all London raves that were to follow in 88, 89 & 90.
Mr.C held down a weekly radio show called Future Music with Kiss 100FM in London from 1993-2002 & has presented TV shows for MTV, FH1, VIVA & BBC. To say that Mr.C is one of the most iconic DJs in the world would be an understatement.
In December 1995 Mr.C opened the legendary nightclub The End in London with Partner Layo Paskin of Layo & Bushwacka! fame & then AKA bar 3 years later, which celebrated its 13th anniversary in December 2008 & was lauded as one of the best night clubs in the world, which completely changed the face of clubbing in London & beyond. Sadly The End & AKA closed its doors for good on January 24th 2009. 1 Chapter closes & another begins.
Mr.C is founder & owner of Plink Plonk records, co-founder of End Recordings & founder & co-owner of the Superfreq label, which is now releasing music prolifically.
Mr.C has recorded under the names, Myster-E, Unity 2, Nu Jacks, Bass Bureau, The Shamen, Mantrac, Somnambulist, Animus Amour, Killer Loop, Mr.C & Tom Parris, Mr.C & 16B, Sycophant Slags, Indigo Kidz, East LA Tek & Wonkytonk.
Mr.C is best known as front man, songwriter & producer of the pop group The Shamen with whom he notched up a string of top 10 hits including Move Any Mountain, Love Sex Intelligence, Boss Drum, Phorever People & the UK number 1 smash hit Ebeneezer Goode. These hits were hits the world over. The Shamen album Boss Drum went double platinum in the UK & they also won a highly coveted Ivor Novelo for Songwriters of the year UK in 1993. Richard's currently recording solo as Mr.C & is also doing collaborations as the Indigo Kidz with Affie Yusuf & more recently with Noel Jackson as East LA Tek & with Radio Rental as Wonkytonk.
Mr.C is currently putting on his brand-new festival Summer Love Festival, which takes place in Surrey on Saturday 4th September. This boutique cutting edge & old school underground House, Acid House & Techno music event will be setting a new standard for quality electronic dance music at festivals.
Mr.C runs & promotes Superfreq events, which celebrated being 19 years old in March 2021 & ran monthly at Mr.C's club The End until it closed down in January 2009. Superfreq now functions bi-monthly in London hopping around London’s popup warehouse venues & various clubs including The Steelyard after an extremely successful event with Richie Hawtin on December 2015, regular events at Fabric & regular quarterly events at Red Gallery until it’s closure in July 2018. Superfreq does regular events in Los Angeles as well as bi-monthly events in Calais France & annual events in Brooklyn, Chicago, Detroit, San Francisco, Miami, Dallas, Denver & Washington DC in the United States & also Vancouver, Playa Del Carmen, Mexico DF, Moscow, Ibiza, Bogota, Montañita & other one off / annual events the world over & has recently competed an Asia tour hitting Manila, Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Beijing & Shenzhen. Superfreq has accomplished 7 successful seasons in Ibiza, 3 at Club Underground, 2 at the legendary DC10, 1 season at Blu, 3 events at Aura & hosted annual events at BPM Festival in Playa Del Carmen until it’s unfortunate closure.
This last 18 months has been very strange for the entire music industry but that hasn’t stopped Mr.C from releasing of his own music & remixes & that of his Superfreq roster every 3 weeks. His Radical Inclusion remixes went down a storm in March last year after the original release in summer 2019. He followed those remixes up with his outstanding Celebration of Life single in late 2020. His recent Wonkytonk project with Radio Rental got lots of attention with his own Mr.C remix particularly doing damage. His recent series of 3 back to back EP releases with Noel Jackson as East LA Tek got a lot of attention. Also with recent Mr.C remixes for Nepoyek, Sam Money, J Gabriel & Chuffing Buffy & Terry Francis for Superfreq, Mr.C has been extremely busy. Superfreq will continue to prolifically release music every 2-3 weeks after the summer break with a full schedule until mid 2022.
If this is all not enough, Mr.C has started his own new podcast portal called Freqstream, that’s getting a lot of attention from discerning music lovers, providing DJ podcasts from some of the best DJs in the world, retro Class of 88 podcasts from the DJs who fuelled the 1st wave of the Acid House Revolution & Superfreq Spotlights on his label artists as well as his own Techno Tuesday podcasts.

Trevor Rockcliffe

His first love is Djing. Back in the mid 80's it started off with a love for collecting and listening to Soul, Jazz, Funk, Electro and Rare Groove records and soon became a hobby, playing at a small club called Zigis in London. His influences include Tom Brown, Grover Washington, Pleasure and Earth, Wind and Fire and this is reflected in the soulful touch he adds to his music. DJing eventually turned into a career for him and he made his name with a residency at 'Troll' club in London in the early 90's. From this point on there was no looking back and with a passion to entertain and educate, Trevor went on to gain Djing global notoriety that has taken him around the world to the world's leading clubs such as Dorian Gray/ Tresor (Germany), Industry (Canada), Twilo (New York), Dance Valley (Holland), Fuse (Belgium), to the well known Festivals such as Love Parade, Dance Planet, Tribal Gathering and Homelands.
