Happy Hardcore/Original Production - Notorious - UK
As the ever changing face of Hardcore rolls on adapting, evolving and growing, one artist has managed to stay part of it’s foundations since it’s very inception. Through it’s various changes as a scene, many DJ’s, producers and remixers have come along, made their mark and since moved on, but Marc Smith is a name that is not only echoed throughout it’s archaic history, but also one that even now raises the adrenaline level to 10 at it’s very mention. The term legend can often be applied to many that grace any main arena stage, but in Marc’s case its most definitely deserved.
Being a highly regarded member of not just his native Scotland’s rave culture, but further achieving global love by way of an impressive list of Worldwide tour dates to boot; Marc’s story begins in 1985 where his bedroom became a lab for cutting up Hip Hop beats accompanied by working closely with local up and coming rappers, beat boxers, break dancers and more. It was evident this early on that his passion and flair for the simple logistics of mixing tunes was to carve the path of what would ultimately be his full time occupation. At just 17, Marc had secured himself a residency at the infamous Warehouse, known by many as the then place to frequent if you were passionate about Acid House – it seemed Marc was too as he got his first full on helping of rave culture, which fed a new found hunger for a then fledgling scene.
Maintaining a regular slot at The Warehouse acted as the perfect springboard for Marc to then progress to such residencies as the Club Hacienda, Euphoria (at Heaven) and many guest slots across Scotland boosting his status from back room to main stage in no time at all. It would appear that Smith’s now natural application of lightening quick cutting, scratching, and a sharp insight into picking the right tunes at the right time had given him headline status even then, at the start of what would later been known as the new era for a new culture later to be named as Hardcore.
As Hardcore erupted into a Worldwide phenomena Marc upped his game, producing cut after cut of seriously upfront Hardcore and rocking every DJ box he entered upon, it wasn’t long before ‘The Scottish Bible’ – Clubscene Magazine awarded him with the much coveted ‘Scotland’s No 1 DJ’ award, not once, but six years running and not only managing to bag that but also a enviable list of trophy’s to his cabinet that include ‘Best Scottish DJ’ in the Irish Dance Music Awards and ‘Best Scottish DJ’ from the listeners of the late, great Tom Wilson’s show Steeping Out on Forth FM and a seemingly unending amount of nominations from rave organisers and music press alike; Smith had become the leader of his game.
Bass Music/Turntableism ←---- Turntablism - Dubspot/Traktor/Hot Mom USA
2x DMC World Champion
New York City's Shiftee has translated his intuitive math geek mentality into far-reaching success on the turntables, electrifying crowds from NYC to London to Hong Kong. With a degree from Harvard, 2 unique DMC World Champion titles, a NYU adjunct professorship, a top 10 debut release on Beatport's Dubstep charts, a finger on the pulse of bass music, and an ongoing international tour schedule, this overachiever can do it all.
On Sept. 12, 2009, DJ Shiftee represented the USA in the 2009 DMC World DJ Finals. He took the title, was automatically inducted into the DMC DJ Hall of Fame and brought the fabled gold Technics turntables back to NYC! This new title places his name along side over 20+ legendary DMC World Champs including Craze, A-Trak, Cash Money, DJ Cheese, Rock Steady DJs (Apollo, Mix Master Mike & Q-Bert), Plus One of Jack Beats, and the late Grand Master Roc Raida. In 2007, Shiftee also became the only American DJ to date to have won the DMC Battle for World Supremacy title. This victory served as the catalyst for widespread international recognition, allowing Shiftee to take his talent and creativity across Asia, Europe, and the US to some of the world's biggest clubs, most prestigious venues, and monster festivals. His groundbreaking DJ mixes have been featured on BBC 1Xtra, Mishka Keep Watch, Kiss 100 (UK), Deepsession, Seclusias' Who Run It!? Podcast, The Rub's Scion AV Show, Dubset, Dubspot, Boundless NY, Noise 212, KNKT3D Magazine, Noisy Dubs, and more.
Having already established himself as master in the DJ world, Shiftee has been gaining momentum as a producer. His debut release Space Ace, a collaboration with Rx on Rad Summer, hit top 10 on Beatport’s dubstep charts. His originals and remixes have been receiving support from Rustie (BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix), Royal-T, Udachi, DJ Wonder (Rinse FM), Pictureplane, Dev79, Elijah (Butterz), Mess Kid, Mishka, Mad Decent, Selecta Fewie (Nasty FM), Rx, Sonkin, Lamin Fofana, and more. With tunes already out on Rad Summer, Deepsession, and LU20 plus forthcoming releases + remixes on Seclusias, Dutty Artz, and Hot Mom USA, Shiftee is definitely a producer to watch.
Shiftee is also a renowned educator in the field of DJing and DJ technology. He is an adjunct professor at New York University, the Director of DJ Curriculum at the prestigious Dubspot school in NYC, and an endorsed artist & product specialist for Native Instruments. The man understands DJing! Beyond teaching, Shiftee spends his time figuring out new and innovative ways to decimate the dancefloor. He fuses an astute ear for cutting edge music with a world champion skill set & grasp of technology, creating an experience that is always jaw dropping.

He continues to relentlessly tour the continent, unleashing his signature sounds to packed dance floors of sweat covered fans. This New England native has been a major figure in the North American rave scene for over two decades, wowing crowds with his flawless mixing, floor-filling beats and crazy turntable tricks.

Not only did Volume release over 70 DJ Venom mix tapes, but they also were bent on breeding an army of party-goers by throwing numerous raves and events, including the famous ENERGY night.
Venom also gained notoriety for his sick scratching and turntable skills that earned him numerous awards in competitions and battles throughout the years, including two second place finishes at the WMC battles in Miami. In 2000, Venom signed with the legendary Underground Construction label out of Chicago. His hard house sound was a perfect match and he began releasing a series of top-selling CDs including the “Straight Bangin'” series, the “House Blend” series and the “Raise the Volume” series. Today, Venom continues to champion the hard dance sounds, releasing an arsenal of headbanging hard house, hardstyle and hardcore tracks. He continues to put out mix CDs on his own label, Morlock Musik, as well as various side projects under the aliases of Scratch Gringo and Eddie Brock.
