2 Bad Mice
2 Bad Mice

Formed in 1991, 2 Bad Mice are widely credited as among the first U.K. hardcore acts to begin heavily incorporating breakbeats into their style and were instrumental in the music's steady mutation into jungle/drum'n'bass. The sudden explosion of new jungle and renewed interest in the sounds of rave and hardcore by a second generation of ravers has seen 2 Bad Mice have their busiest ever year. (10 - 11pm)


Having been established from the early days of the rave scene we shouldn’t typecast Trademark into just one genre, far from it, his versatility to drop killer Drum & Bass set’s right through to his legendary old skool sets has helped him gain many friends and fans within the scene over the past 20 years. It’s always been for him for the love of the music and of course to see you all you lovely people dance! (9 - 10pm)

Kerry Nolan
