Gus Da Hoodrat
Cavaliers of club, tramps of techno and hobos of house, The Bang Gang are a group of full hearted party packing, music enthusiasts that dance like no-one this or any other dimension has ever seen. Pioneers of the sound that’s come to be known as "dimensioneer dance", known as humans completely unafraid of taking a trip into the murky waters of the sonic exploration, with complete disregard for acceptable club convention and what is commonly recognised as “good cricket”. Taking influence from modern techno, minimal jisco-disco, coconut electro , & pub-house, these disc jockeys not only pioneer new dimensions, they also help the deaf 'n' disabled, the young 'n' restless, the mellow 'n' yellow and the aged 'n' agitated to discombobulate into parallel universes.
They’ve made thousands of mixes, released on their spiritual home Modular Recordings (most recently “D is For Disco, E is For Dancing” ), through Ministry Of Sound, on their own self-produced CD-R’s and set into the wild via the interweb. They have produced a bunch of Bang Gang remixes for The Prodigy, The Presets, Tiga, & Headman and other friends of that persuasion. And they have grand plans of creating a symphony of noise at a party near anywhere near anyone.
Gus (Hoodrat) is also the head-honcho-engineroom behind the notoriously dangerous Bang Gang record label, releasing vinyl by like-minded turkeys such as Light Year, NT89, Bumblebeez, Flight Facilities and KIM. He’s toured the world, playing raves in Tokyo, smelly clubs in London, Parisian cheese factories, German leather dens, New York discos and Melbourne toilets delivering the future sound of the label along side his favourite party k-lassics. If there’s a knees up where he can throw down, he’s already there doing it like a lunatic. Starting a new gang in every town is a prerogative.
