Adam (Acid) Strange
From the depths of the underground bunker in Manchester to the light of the white isle that is now his home, this mix charts the transition from dark to light.
Adam (Acid) Strange moves and shakes with The Disco Outcasts from time to time, when the wormhole through time and space allows. Look out for future productions both solo and with the infamous Disco Outcasts. ENjoy X

Another Outcast Love mix comes from the very talented Graeme Fisher. We first became aware of Graeme through the disco not disco group on facebook, he is one of the original contributors. We have always been impressed with his selections which comes as no shock once you dive into the history of the man.
Graeme has the true balearic spirit and has worked with many of the greats through his career. He is currently working with a close outcast friend, Steve Lee, at the popular sunday session, Balearica in London town..
So, on to the mix, a well crafted selection of disco, balearic & house that will have you at it into the wee hours and beyond! Outcast Love to you indeed Graeme, we salute you sir! ENjoy xx
It was back in 1989 during the acid house wars that Graeme Fisher first ventured onto the decks – well one deck to be precise. One belt driven deck, a homemade reverb unit, a small collection of records and a large sheet of psychedelics to be very precise. There were only eight people in the barn that night and if any of them could remember they’d definitely say it was one of the best musical experiences they’d ever had (especially the bit when Graeme dubbed the shit out of the opening bars of 808 States ‘Cubik’ for a good five minutes).
From those humble beginnings Graeme has gone on to play at some of the best clubs in the country and beyond. He’s held residencies at both Pacha & Space in Ibiza, Tribal Gathering and Type @ The Cross (with old friend Kelvin Andrews) amongst others.
Over the years he’s graced the decks at Bugged Out, Bestival, Underwater, Glastonbury, Wobble, Turnmills, Ministry Of Sound, The Eclipse, NME awards, MTV Ibiza Festival, 333, Ku, 93 Feet East, Café Del Mar, Mambo and many other clubs in Europe including Belgium, Norway and Switzerland. Playing on the same bill with Dj’s including Alfredo, Sasha, Daft Punk, Erol Alkan, Jose Padilla, Andrew Weatherall, Idjut Boys, Ashley Beedle, Phil Mison, Balearic Mike, Ray Mang, 2 Many DJ’s and The Chemical Brothers.
Graeme has released records under the names Kay & Fisher, The Original Holy Rollers and Air Tattoo, who’s remix of Punchanlla’s San Trancisco made it onto DJ Magazine’s ‘Top 10 Progressive House Tracks Ever Chart’ (it wasn’t called progressive house when they made it!) Graeme also set up a record label to release a single sided 7” by his friend The Freelance Hellraiser called ‘A Stroke Of Genuis’ which went on to become one of the defining tracks of the mashup scene that was taking place at the time.
