about THE REVENGE:
The Revenge is a producer who understands the past but embraces the future. The analogue approach, forward thinking productions and his versatility as a DJ, has ensured him a place as one of the leading names in House music in recent years.
After making music for over 15 years, Graeme rose to prominence in 2010 with a string of productions and remixes, which lead to the opportunity to reconstruct an entire album for Z Records, reworking the classic sounds of artists such as Johnny Adams and The Joneses to much critical acclaim. Definitely not a producer to rest on any success, Graeme has gone on to forge several aliases and collaborative projects for his prolific production and experienced engineering demands. As 6th Borough Project alongside long time DJ, Craig Smith, the partnership has already turned out a stunning full length album for the respected UK label Delusions of Grandeur alongside a selection of low slung remixes.
The Revenge solo productions, though few and far between are worth waiting for when they do arrive. Finding homes on labels such as Needwant, Pokerflat and his own, now defunct and much sort after, Instruments Of Rapture. This brief and concise catalogue showcases vocals, dubs and a range of tempos, all reinforcing the breadth and depth of The Revenge’s influences and abilities. The extensive list of reworks and remixes tell yet another story. These remakes have found their way into just about every self respecting club DJ’s collection and are a clear indication of the care for the dance floor as well as the artist’s works in question.
The future looks every bit as ardent as the past. An eagerly awaited new EP will be the first original production released for over two years, and this beckons a new era in The Revenge productions. Tours are already scheduled for return visits to the US, Asia and Australia, as well as hand picked remixes for some of House music’s best-loved and most respected labels.
If it is in partnership, an undercover alias or as The Revenge, the chances are your listening has been soundtracked in some way by Graeme’s music in the past few years. Expect to hear a lot more the future too.
