Steel City Collective are a group of DJs and music producers delivering the finest synthwave events in the north of England. Specialising in Darksynth, Outrun, Cyberpunk, Electro, French Touch and Futuresynth, their club nights are a nostalgia driven imagining of a post-apocalyptic future. Resident DJs L.A. Rock and Jonny Lazer will take you on a journey into a macabre underworld that will uncover your deepest darkest inhibitions.
RevolutioN has been bringing alternative electro music to the dancefloor's of Sheffield for the past 10 years now. Specialising in EBM, industial, dark electro, aggrotech and synthpop the night has not only bought some of the UK scenes finest DJ's to the stage but has hosted a ton of live shows and spin off nights, including the infamous Resistanz Music Festival! In total RevolutioN has helped bring more than 200 bands and DJ's to South Yorkshire within the last 10 years.
L.A. Rock has been trailblazing the electronic music scene in Sheffield for years, filling floors with his on-point blend of nu-disco, tek-funk and French Touch. More recently Rock’s mixes have matured into a more progressive, harder-edged sound, celebrating the best from the Outrun and Synthwave scene whilst maintaining a groove driven sensibility. The result is a set that’s equally at home on a Paris club dance floor as it is a gritty industrial techno night in Berlin. Expect b-movie soundtrack tinged electro, thrash era power chords, and a hypnotic thumping techno kick that’ll make you thirsty for more.
Jonny Lazer brings a high-octane compound of darksynth, outrun, cyberpunk and synthmetal. Forged on rock, grunge, punk, metal, trance, house, and 80s sci-fi and action movies, Lazer’s sets fuse these influences together to deliver the soundtrack to a decadent technological future that’ll leave your feet bleeding on the dance floor.
L8N is driven by a passion for music that shine's through when he is behind the decks no matter what the musical style. A resident DJ at the Corporation night club now for the last 15+ years. He's the founder and promoter behind the RevolutioN club night and the driving force behind the now retired(?) Resistanz Music Festival. As a DJ he's played (and hosted) a wide variety of nights up and down the country - metal, punk, electro house, techno, rock, alternative, industrial, synthpop, 80's and 90's.
