10pm-11pm : MARCELLO PERRI



Over the last 18 years Marcello Perri has been rocking the London Underground Techno scene to the rhythms of his hard, melodic and uplifitng grooves. With his smiling face behind the decks, razor sharp beats Marcello has become one of the most sought after DJs on the London party circuit.

Born in Sardinia and involved in rock bands from an early age, Marcello left Italy for London at the age of 19 and has never looked back. After dabbling around with Hard Acid Trance Marcello found the sound he was looking for at the illegal London squat parties and was soon playing alongside Acid Techno heroes such as Chris Liberator, Geezer, and especially D.A.V.E. The Drummer.

From playing his first squat party in 2001 it was only a short time until he was playing at massive club events such as Chemical Warfare, Free Energy, We Want You, and Family Groove, as well as being a regular on the underground soundsystems such as Malfiteurs, Underground Sound, Restless Natives and especially Manik.

On top of his UK gigs Marcello also kicked off his international DJ career with parties all over Europe including Spain, Poland, Italy, Czech and Bulgaria before starting his South American conquest playing in Venezuela, Colombia and Brazil.

1461529_558062274275989_2036273536_n As well as DJing Marcello is also responsible for producing pounding Techno beats that have been destroying the dancefloor on labels such as Hydraulix, Amigos, Bass Assault, Dark Expressions, Elektrax,Nacked Lunch,Techno Factory and many more…

Marcello loves all kinds of Techno from the banging UK style of Henry Cullen, Glenn Wilson, Mike Humphries and Ant through to the European sounds of Adam Beyer, Patrick Skoog, Henrik B, A.Paul, AXel Karakasis and Spiros Kaloumenos.

You can catch Marcello mixing on WWW.TECHNO.FM every 3rd Friday of the month as resident DJ on ThermoBee’s ‘Live From Hackney’ radio show. And as one of the Hydraulix Party promoters (alongside D.A.V.E. the Drummer) you can see him playing at some of the biggest parties in London!

The Rebel Yelle show is recorded live on the first Friday of the month 9pm-11pm and then repeated every Friday same time during the rest of the month and on Wednesdays 5pm-7pm. Enjoy!

East Preston Festival 2014 Amateur DJ Competition

dj comp1-page-001

East Preston is a small village of around 5,500 people, situated on the Sussex coast roughly halfway between Littlehampton and Worthing.

For over 30 years the village has held an annual festival. Last year there were 98 different events held throughout the 10 days, raising a total of £24,500 for the local community, organisations and charities.

This year we would like to introduce a new event – an amateur DJ competition. We hope that this exciting new event will complement the existing programme and stimulate a greater inclusion of the slightly younger part of the community.

DJ Entry Form

The competition will be free to enter. We are expecting to run around 3 knock out sessions, with the grand final being held during the festival on 7th June 2014. We have the fantastic prize of a live club set in London for the over 18 winner and a live set on Optical radio in London for the under 18 winner.

The sessions will be held in either the village hall or the East Preston Football Clubhouse and will last for about 4 hours. A full speaker and lighting set will be provided courtesy of AWOLsound system hire and the DJ equipment is being provided courtesy of Sussex DJ Equipment Hire. We will charge a nominal admission charge for spectators to contribute to the festival fund, of just 50p for the knock out sessions, and £1 for the final.

We have an awesome line up of professional judges for the panel for each session, who will be kindly donating their time to support this event. Oh and I almost forgot the core of volunteers actually doing the rest of the organizing, printing etc.

What do we need from you? In order to run this as a free event for the local community we need a few more sponsors. Anything that you could give would be hugely appreciated. What do you get other than a nice warm feeling? A mention in the festival programme, possibly even a half page advert if you are really generous! There are over 4,000 copies printed and distributed every year.

Please turn over to see who is already kindly supporting this event:

24hr DJ People – Non-stop Live show on OpitcalRadio

PT logo

A team of four well respected underground music artists are putting on a radio show on community radio station Optical Radio. For the first time the radio will broadcast non-stop for 24hrs LIVE and we will be DJing continuously for the whole time to raise money for the Pilion Trust’s, specifically for the Crash Pad project.

The Crash Pad Youth Shelter is running 7 day per week for young people 17 to 23 yrs old who are in crisis, fleeing violence, leaving care and other institutions and are at risk if left on the streets. They stay at the shelter for 28 days and in that time the team works like crazy getting them into school, work or apprenticeships. Deal with all their other needs and house them before they leave.602932_183707105169072_305467727_n

This 24hr show will be held in the Old Deptford Police station which was given to the community for all sorts of community activities and events.

Although help is always sought after all year round, I hope you agree that experiencing homelessness at Christmas time is such a lonely and horrible feeling for them, but just a thought for us. Please give whatever you can, anything you do give will go to the Pilion Trust 100% and that is a promise!

In return we will give you the musical journey of your life with some really top and well respected DJs you may have heard of (watch this space).

If you run your own business and will be operating for business on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th of December, please support us by tuning in to the LIVE show for all to hear at your place of work.
