Every story must have a start and we're no exception here. So what we're starting from, eh? A record tape. Recorded from the radio the tape had three tracks on it sounding similar to Sash! and was hidden inside the box till the half-mysterious Oncle Mustachi introduced the tape to his friends Simon (DJ Flyer) and Dan (DJ Sonic). Being schoolmates Dan and Simon started their investigation together, getting new tapes and learning more about that type of sound. Even after having felt themselves comfortable with it they never even thought of starting to make their own music. And again, the half-mysterious Oncle Mustachi was the one to start things rollin. He introduced the guys to the fresh and very easy to use music making software (DDClip). Sam was the first to try it. He came up with a track called 'Moustache' which was a big success! In the very beginning of 1998 they formed Reactor DJ Team, giving one of their classmates a try as an MC. Nothing could stop them since this moment. Started to play their tracks on the local dance parties they've gained popularity very fast. Simple but clever used sounds of hard progressive house, big kickdrums, dirty acid lines, raw breaks, brilliant track progression and perfect MC work - these are the essential elements to describe the unique Reactor DJ Team style. Producing a large amount of stuff each year, they always were keeping their fans close to them, extending their listeners auditory with each new release. 'Gettin Out', 'Shaved!', 'Not A Rainbow', 'Make It Fast'... listing their masterwork hits can take quite a time!
Tho, nothing is eternal! Deformed in the end of 2001, Reactor DJ Team not really finished to exist. The members of the team continued their ways in the dance music business separately, producing tracks under the large number of different guises. In the very beginning of 2006, highly requested by the crowd they re-assembled for a single night to make their last performance and were finally established as a legend of the very underground dance circuit. This tribute is made by myself for you to face the legend, listen to some of their rare and classic tracks, feel yourself going back in time to the atmosphere of the best underground dance floors of the past. Enjoy!
