Kickin Records


bio: Kickin Records was launched unofficially in 1988 and officially in April 1989 (from Mr Peter Harris's basement) by founder and MD Peter Harris.

Kickin Records was one of the pioneers of the Hardcore / Rave scene of the late 80's and the first label to release material from the likes of The Scientist, Shut Up And Dance, & Messiah (the latter signed to Def Jam co-founder Rick Rubin's American Recordings imprint in 1994 and collaborating with Ian Astbury of The Cult) and pioneering the careers of Grant Nelson, DJ Hype, Phil Asher, Matthew 'Bushwhacka' B, Dominic B (Stanton Warriors), Rennie Pilgrem.

Kickin Music Ltd. was formed later on as an umbrella company housing the Kickin Records, Slip 'n' Slide, Hardleaders, Stoned Asia, Slip 'n' Slide Blue labels and also the publishing arm in the form of Haripa Music Publishing in 1990. Other previous sub-labels were: Fragmented, Pandemonium and Basement 282.


The roster of successful artists releasing material on Kickin Music Ltd's associated labels reads like a who's who of dance music:

Ground-breaking releases from De'lacy 'Hideaway' (Top 5 UK sales charts, selling over 3.2 million copies & licensed to 37 territories worldwide!), Blaze 'My Beat' (licensed to Universal Music in 2001), Jonah 'Ssst... Listen' (licensed to Universal Music & Virgin in 2000), Amira 'My Desire' (Top 20 UK sales charts, licensed to Virgin & PIAS in 1998), Antoine Clamaran (licensed to 12 territories), King Britt, Josh Wink, DJ Hell, Kings of Tomorrow, Deep Dish, D'jamin, Aaron Carl, Plantastik (aka Bushwhacka!) Dharma (aka BT & John Selway), Morgan Geist, Capone, Lemon D, Grant Nelson, ATFC, & Lenny Fontana have all paved the way for the labels of Kickin Music to be the flourishing success that they are today.

Not to mention the enormous amount of ground-breaking albums that have been released over the years from Kickin Music including: The Jazz In The House series (the fore runner of releases from Hed Kandi & Compost and the like), Colin Dale's Outer Limits series, Juan Atkins Mastermix Vol. 1 (featuring 5 exclusive 'Mad' Mike Banks cuts), Techno Nations 1 & 2 (the first compilation outside Detroit to license an Underground Resistance release!), The Klubb Jazz series, Colin Favor's Techmix series, the Beats By Dope Demand series (the first to introduce the 'big beat' sound to the masses during the mid '90's)

There is also a wealth of remixes from the leading lights of all styles of dance music including Masters at Work, Roger Sanchez, Tim Deluxe, Ray Roc, Deep Dish, Victor Calderone, Bob Sinclar, Robbie Rivera, Mousse T, Derrick Carter, Boris D'lugosch, Dego (4 Hero), Joey Negro, Club 69, Orin Walters (Bugz In The Attic), Ashley Beedle, Knee Deep, K-Klass, Ewan Pearson, Phil Asher, Shimon, Spen & Karizma, 20:20 Vision, Hani, Oliver Klein... the list is almost endless!

Peter Harris - MD and founder of Kickin Records - was diagnosed with cancer some time ago and sadly passed away early this year

Peter was an incredible man and an inspiration of what could be achieved with little or no resources at your disposal.

RIP

Nightcrawlers Featuring John Reid - Lets Push It

Nightcrawlers is a house music project assembled by producer, DJ and vocalist John Reid (born 6 September 1967) from East Kilbride, Scotland. His 1993 dance song "Push The Feeling On" is considered today to be a classic track of the house music genre. In its original form the song hit #7 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart and briefly crossed over to pop radio, peaking at #80 on the Hot 100, spending fifteen weeks on the chart. It also reached #3 in the UK in 1995, Reid's biggest hit in his homeland.

In 2004, thanks to new remixes of the track, it re-entered the US dance chart, this time hitting #1.

Other successful singles by The Nightcrawlers were: "Surrender Your Love" (UK #7), "Don't Let The Feeling Go" (UK #13), "Let's Push It" (UK #23) feat. John Reid and Zeetah Massiah" as vocalists and "Push That Feeling On" (UK Indie #26).

An unusual characteristic of many Nightcrawlers songs is that the choruses were not separately written and recorded but instead consisted of rearranged snippets of the verses, giving them an uncertain or unclear meaning.

John Reid is a successful songwriter in his own right having written a chart-topping UK single for Westlife (Unbreakable) and also songs for the likes of Tina Turner and Rod Stewart.

John Reid is a close friend of Simon Cowell and he co-wrote the Kelly Clarkson and Leona Lewis hit "A Moment Like This" with Jorgen Elofsson

DJ Aphrodite


aka Gavin King, is the man behind Aphrodite Recordings. It all started way back in the summer of love '88' running an Acid House club called Aphrodite, the namesake has been with him since.

Through various chance meetings with DJs Micky Finn and Claudio Giussani, Urban Shakedown was born. Over the years Aphro's own Aphrodite Recordings and Urban Takeover, a joint lable with Micky Finn followed. The musical progession to Drum n Bass was a natural step over the years through hardcore and jungle.

DJ Aphrodite is known for playing out a good vibe that ranges from classics to upfront and exclusive dubplates. Aphro is invited to DJ in countries all over the world.




DJ Mickey Finn


Mickey Finn, real name Michael Hearn, was born in East London on the 3rd December 1966. Mickey Finn went to Woolwich Polytechnic before getting into trouble for various offences and spending spells at his majesty's pleasure in prison. It was during the last of these that Mickey Finn decided to make something more constructive of himself and was inspired to learn to DJ.

Mickey Finn started to release his own material in collaboration with Gavin King (known as Aphrodite), under the name Urban Shakedown and released the hit "Some Justice" with samples from Ce Ce Rogers "Some Day". He has also had a prolific career as a remixer. He is now involved with a label call Urban Takeover which he owns with DJ Aphro.

Now in the late nineties Mickey travels the world and throws down his vibe in countries like Japan, USA, Australia, Holland, Ibiza, Germany, Finland, Israel and France to name just a few.



DJ Mickey Finn Interview


"I've always liked music and always used to tape music off of the radio, but I got pissed off with the DJ talkin' in between records. So when I was twenty-one, I went and saw Eric B and that just topped it. I really like wot Eric B was doin' when I saw him, 'cause he just intrigues me.

"It was that year -1987- that I first discovered 'Ouse. A friend of mine took me out to a club in the West End called Future, where Paul Oakenfold and Nancy Noice was playin', which was one of the first clubs, next door to Spectrum and I've never looked back since. I fought it was really good, a different dimension."

"House hit big here, in early 1987. I mean Colin Faver was playin' 'Ouse since 1986, but it was put straight down as gay music, so people weren't really into it. But I fink once the scene started comin' over with Shoom and Future, a lot more people started acceptin' it, although it weren't just the 'Ouse-you 'ad a different variety of music then, but still underground."

"What type of music do I play? I'd Just label it Dance music really. I've never like the words Jungle of 'Ardcore, I don't really use 'em. I just try and play good dance music, and my set can go right across the board, from breaks with pianos in or reggae sample in it with deep bass lines, or I could go for stuff with straight 909 stompin' Kicks, which some people would say is Techno, but I wouldn't say it's Techno."

What do you think of the hype of being a DJ?
"I've never really looked at it on that side of it - I'm not really that way inclined. I ain't into grabbing no limelight. I just see it as being up there playin' music for people, and I enjoy seein'' 'em enjoying it. I don't really take it no further'n that. Just because you're a DJ, you ain't a step above anyone else, but some people seem to fink they are. Some people fink, 'Oh I'm a DJ and I've got time for who the fuck, I fink I've got time for'. But that's bullshit-you're no different from a bricklayer. Just because you stand in front of a crowd of people and entertain 'em, wot's the big fing? The only buzz I get is seein' that wot I'm doin' is making people enjoy 'emselves."

Do you have any other plans outside of DJing?
"Well I'm trying to build a studio now, but I've never ever come the the decision that I don't wanna be a DJ. But you get older and you change. Wot I would like to do is get into writin' film sound tracks and music for adverts and 'fings like that. But so long as the demand is 'ere, I'm 'ere."

Which parties have you most enjoyed DJing at?
"It'd have to go between a couple. I'd say Techno Drome in Scotland for atmosphere and seein' people doin' wot they wanted to do-like dancin' in the mud with no shoes on, and seein' trainers wounded at the end of the gig where people couldn't be bothered to fish 'em out of the mud.

"Sunrise festival I fought was one of the best fings I've been to as well, and Livin' Dream at Hackney I fought was a good gig. The way I look at a good gig is not just for me, I look at it all round for the people as well: the sound system, the lighting , the line up, the way the music went all night and all that. I look at it for their value for money - whether the people are gettin' ripped off or not. For a gig to be one of the best gigs I've been to, I take into consideration the whole fing."

Where did you get your DJ name?
"When I started off doin' this, I done it 'cause I liked it - I didn't fink about preparing myself with a name and all that 'cause I didn't know how far I was gonna go. Well how it all started off was I got the residency at the Tunnel Club which was on the south side of the Blackwall Tunnel, and me sister used to run a night down there. She said 'I'm gonna give you a name, 'cause you ain't gonna get noticed if you don't give yourself some fing that's gonna catch peoples minds'. And since she used to take the piss out of me because I was skinny anyway she called my Micky Thin, but with an F. I later found out it meant others fings to do with a drug from years ago. You hear it in old films, people saying 'I slipped him a Micky Finn', but I never knew that it had any fing to do with drugs, and if I did I would have never been involved, but I'm stuck with it now."

Mickey Finn started to release his own material in collaboration with Gavin King (known as Aphrodite), under the name Urban Shakedown and released the hit "Some Justice" with samples from Ce Ce Rogers "Some Day". He has also had a prolific career as a remixer. He is now involved with a label call Urban Takeover which he owns with DJ Aphro.
