The Revenge is a producer who understands the past but embraces the future. The analogue approach, forward thinking productions and his versatility as a DJ, has ensured him a place as one of the leading names in House music in recent years.
After making music for over 15 years, Graeme rose to prominence in 2010 with a string of productions and remixes, which lead to the opportunity to reconstruct an entire album for Z Records, reworking the classic sounds of artists such as Johnny Adams and The Joneses to much critical acclaim. Definitely not a producer to rest on any success, Graeme has gone on to forge several aliases and collaborative projects for his prolific production andexperienced engineering demands. As 6th Borough Project alongside long time DJ, Craig Smith, the partnership has already turned out a stunning full length album for the respected UK label Delusions of Grandeur alongside a selection of low slung remixes.
The Revenge solo productions, though few and far between are worth waiting for when they do arrive. Finding homes on labels such as Needwant, Pokerflat and his own, now defunct and much sort after, Instruments Of Rapture. This brief and concise catalogue showcases vocals, dubs and a range of tempos, all reinforcing the breadth and depth of The Revenge’s influences and abilities. The extensive list of reworks and remixes tell yet another story. These remakes have found their way into just about every selfrespecting club DJ’s collection and are a clear indication of the care for the dance floor as well as the artist’s works in question.
The future looks every bit as ardent as the past. An eagerly awaited new EP will be the first original production released for over two years, and this beckons a new era in The Revenge productions. Tours are already scheduled for return visits to the US, Asia and Australia, as well as hand picked remixes for some of House music’s best-loved and most respected labels.
If it is in partnership, an undercover alias or as The Revenge, the chances are your listening has been soundtracked in some way by Graeme’s music in the past few years. Expect to hear a lot more the future too.
DJ M3 aka Manny is a major influence in SF's music scene. Launching the Green Gorilla Lounge DJ crew and record label in the 90s, which organized and played many of SF's most notable underground events. Manny is the soul proprietor of Lower Haight's vinyl music boutique 'Black Pancakes', which led to the opening of the The Triple Crown nightclub and now his most recent collaborative project Monarch. M3 continues to rock San Francisco and looks forward to upcoming music release in early 2013.
Anthony Mansfield has been on a 20-year journey through the world of
psychedelic dance music ever since attending the now-legendary full moon massives of
San Francisco' s Wicked Crew in the early 90' s. Anthony spent the rest of the decade
in New York, spreading the gospel of deep house across the Empire State with a late-
night radio show, his 8-year-running weekly, and the countless underground parties
that gave birth to his own crew, HectorWorks Soundsystem. After an exhausting and
debaucherous 2-year run as GM, talent booker, and resident DJ at upstate' s largest live
music venue, The Odyssey, Anthony was ready to return to San Francisco.
Anthony hit the West Coast running in 2002, joining his old friend DJ M3 as
resident DJ and co-promoter of the infamous Green Gorilla Lounge in a string of
successful weekly club nights, true seat-of-your-pants underground parties, and blown-
out monthly events across the Bay Area, with some of the city' s and world' s best names
in dance music. Anthony has left his mark on Burning Man for the last decade as well,
at the Space Lounge, Green Gorilla, and Disco Knights sound camps, with a trail of
exhausted dancers and party people in the wake of his many epic sets on the playa.
Anthony has been producing his own particular brand of dance music since his
first release on Rong Records in ' 04 with Ben Cook as " Barfly" . Quickly moving to
found his own label, Hector Works, in 2005 with NYC deep-house production wizard
Nick Chacona, Anthony has worked with Garth, Tal M. Klein, Sneak-E Pete, M3, and
others in the last five years, releasing tracks on Gomma, Moodmusic, Aniligital , and
Om Records. His tunes have received nods (and plays) from some of the world' s top
DJs, including Dimitri from Paris, Harvey, Greg Wilson, Doc Martin, Idjut Boys, Ivan
Smaggle, and Playgroup. Camped out in his room at Moulton Studios, Anthony is
currently hard at work on the 16th release for Hector Works, and looking forward to
taking a break for the Treasure Island Music Festival!
