Outcast Love # 27 - RED RACK 'EM
Danny Berman aka Red Rack'em is working on several musical projects including Hot Coins (disco/house), Marlinspike (Detroit techno 2 step) and Red Rack'em (hip hop and beatdown house). He produces music for quite a few respected labels including Tirk, Untracked, Society, Home Taping, Undertones and Deep Freeze and has also remixed a few well known artists such as Tricky and The Revenge. His remix of the Larry Levan gospel disco classic 'Stand On The Word' by The Joubert Singers was the lead track on the sampler twelve for the latest Tirk compilation and has been massively supported by Greg Wilson and Gilles Peterson making it one of the biggest tracks of 2009.
As a DJ, Danny plays many different styles of music around the UK and in Europe and he also produces and presents his own radio show/podcast The Smugglers Inn, which focuses on upfront and unreleased music from his network of underground contacts around the world. The podcast is available from redrackem.com or search itunes for 'smugglers inn' Expect to hear the finest hip-hop, disco, cosmic, electro, punk funk, proper house, broken beat, jazz, funk and wonky beats.
Danny has been playing at some pretty cool events in the last year or so including Glastonbury, Big Chill, Gilles Petersons Worldwide Awards, Bestival and Snowbombing. His DJ set at the Worldwide Awards at Cargo in London (going on straight after Jazzanova) was really well received and broadcast on Radio 1 the following week.
