stomping feet and hardcore beats. Venom first gained notoriety in the early 90s, releasing

countless mix tapes and showing off his award winning turntable skills at events all over the

country. He won the New England DJ Spin-Off in 1997 and placed 2nd two years in a row at the

WMC DJ Battles. In 2000, he signed with the legendary Chicago hard house label Underground

Construction and released a number of top selling CDs such as the House Blend, Straight

Bangin’ and Raise the Volume series. Venom’s full length album Civil Unrest is due out in 2019 as well as slew of singles and remixes slated for release on a variety of labels including his own

Morlock Musik. So get ready for the mayhem. Get ready for the chaos. Get ready for DJ Venom!

DJ Dread

Of an eastern European descent, Victor fled Ex-Communist Romania as a child with his native

mother and father. The first traces of his musical inclinations came early in his childhood; his

father being an audio engineer allowed Victor to interact with equipment as well as open to a

wide range of music. His first experience with electronic music came in early 1986 while

attending Cafe, a small club in Greenwich CT, where Moby was the resident DJ. After watching

and listening to Moby blend a wide range of music from early house beats to the Nu

Wave/Industrial movement at the time, Moby’s ability to move and control the crowds became

a major inspirational factor in Victor’s career. His first residency and also the first time he had a

live audience came at – Nightbreed – a new night which catered strictly to

NuWave/Goth/Industrial sounds. The night was a big success and catapulted him to new

heights after which a whole array of guest spots to such legendary clubs as : Palladium, The

Bank, Ivy, Red Zone, Mirabelle, Dragon’s Lair, Citi Limits… came about. A few years passed by

during which he built a great name for himself and developed quite a following. Early influences

from Belgium, Holland, and Germany steered Victor to grasp and experiment with a variety of

sounds. Around 1992 he started to experiment with more than just the industrial movement

and reached into Gabber, Tribal House, Hard Trance, and Acid Trance. He gravitated towards

Trance which became his signature sound. Understanding the shift in music and with the new

underground parties happening, he decided to change with the times and pursue these new

electronic sounds.

DJ Sonic Bee

Emerging from the New England rave scene in the early 90’s, exposure to the underground

sounds gave rise to Sonic Bee. Developing his own style, Sonic fine-tuned a unique combination

of funky, hard breakbeats and a non-stop mixing style. Added to NYC’s, Kingsize-USA

Entertainment roster, Sonic Bee earned supporting and eventually headlining gigs alongside

some of the best at parties all over New England, up & down the east coast and many other

stops around the states. From party to party, residencies at the old BOUNCE monthlies in NY &

the infamous Wednesday nights at Function in New Haven, CT, funky house sets at Drinkland

NYC, even closing the show at A Tribe Called Quest’s farewell tour at The Palladium, Sonic Bee

has proven his ability to rock the decks & the peoples. Never overzealous, a quiet professional

who lets his music & skills speak for themselves, Sonic Bee will continue to make noise & moves

dancefloors…

club sounds to the outer reaches of acid infused 303 beats. Join him as he takes you on a

journey across genres to a place where only the vibrations exist.

DJ Rorzor

Producing and mixing since the early 2000’s, DJ Rorzor has recently brought his passion for

music to Western MA. After starting Space Dog Productions back in May, Rorzor has breathed

fresh life into the Western MA underground dance music scene with his monthly dance events.

over New England to one of the best venues in the area.
