Every 4th Friday of the month, Audio Menace will kick start your weekend right here on Safehouse Radio with his show Hypnotic Pulse, delivering 2 hours of in-your-face hard trance, hard dance, acid trance and hard house.
When Audio Menace was 18 friends of his talked him in to going to a local dance music night he'd never heard of before called Skankadelic, and from the moment his foot stepped in and he felt the bass thunder through his chest & his life was changed. He didn't miss a Skankadelic for next 5 years. Seeing great live acts such as K90, Nuw Idol, The Secret and Orpheus 2, alongside brilliant underground Acid Trance and NRG DJ's like Beamish & Oberon, Psynrg, Thermobee and Juno.
At the same time Audio Menace was visiting Gatecrasher where he'd see terrific Trance DJ's like Guy Ornadel and John Kelly and another local club called Crazy Daisies who would regularly put on Hard House giants such as Lisa Lashes and Fergie.
It was in 2002 he started attending raves too & was blown away by the Hardcore Techno rooms and also by Sharkey and Energy blasting out Freeform alongside Mark EG & M-Zone in the Hard Trance rooms.
It was in the early 2000s Audio Menace invested in turntables and along with a few friends of his, started hiring out village halls under the guise of a birthday party and putting a rave on instead.
After a few hundred unexpected people came to what turned out to be the last one he would put on, he decided to hire out proper venues and book big name DJ's like DJ Sy and Joey Riot to play.
The Energycore nights were predominantly Hardcore and Freeform events so to give him the ability to play at any time in the main room he taught myself to play early Hardstyle 33rpm records on 45rpm, essentially bringing them up to Freeform speed.
But his main love has always been Hard Trance, Acid Trance and NRG although he's been known to spin Progressive, Freeform and Hardcore Techno too.
His favourite labels include Telica, Deep Mission, Acid Test Pressings, Tinrib, Ef.adrine, Wicked! and Spinball.
With Hypnotic Pulse you can expect underground Acid Trance, Hard Trance & NRG with the occasional suprise thrown in, all mixed on vinyl!
