NUDE162: Rebel Frequency


Russian-born and London-based DJ, producer and head of Alien Technology Recordings, Rebel Frequency has years of experience behind his back, playing all sorts of hard dance music from slower bpm trance and techno to relentless hard techno and hard nrg to crowds of 150 to 5000. He has firmly stamped himself on UK scene with a string of releases on such labels as Toolbox, Insomniacz, Nitrox, Fever, Stereodays and, of course, his own Alien Technology. His style is unique – hard, fast and pounding, but always uplifting and guaranteed to move any dancefloor!

While being regarded for many years as a force within the hard dance scene with his Rebel Frequency project, when it comes to slower bpm Dan is also on point – as his Rhythm Design joint collaboration with Anton Vishniakov (Rise And Fall, Bonzai Progressive, Particles, Perfecto) has received constant support from the likes of Hernan Cattaneo, Sasha and John Digweed himself.

DJ-wise Dan has appeared on the stage at numerous events with gigs stretching to Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Europe and most recently Central America. He performed alongside many respected DJs and producers including Tomcraft (Germany), Marcus Schossow (Sweden), The Panacea (Germany), DJ Promo [Third Movement, Netherlands], Electric Indigo (Austria), Fanu (Finland), Mark Maitland (UK), Osmo [Scythe Squadron, PL], Fracus [Hardcore Underground], Art Of Fighters [Traxtorm], Android [Apex / Cluster] to name just a few, showcasing himself as a versatile DJ capable of working in a wide variety of styles at the highest level.

Today, he joins the NUDE Techno podcast, with an hour of Techno. Listen to it below on SoundCloud & Mixcloud. If you are feeling this series, then please consider supporting it on Mixcloud Select.

Sum up this podcast in 10 words…

The perfect cocktail of fast-paced techno and euphoric hard dance

What’s your personal favourite track on it?

Equinox Remix of “Streamline” – one of my all-time favourites, or my new collab with Matt Clarkson entitled “Aquatic”

What’s the special ingredient in this mix?

I’d say I tried to keep it well balanced with all colours of fast euphoric music present – old, new, classic or unreleased – making it eclectic and hopefully something for everyone

Tell us about your next EP?

It’s going to be out next month on my Alien Technology label and will be comprised of Techno / Acid / Hard Dance crossover tracks

What have you got coming up?

Quite a number of releases planned on Alien Technology for late 2023 and a new Neo Core hard dance compilation for early 2024

And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?

Be open-minded, trust the DJ and dont deny yourself of new musical revelations

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
