Coming up on Side-Line: 80sObscurities hosted by DJ Rexx ArkanaPosted on 13/12/12
From tomorrow on Side-Line will be hosting a new series, "80sObscurities", as curated by DJ Rexx Arkana. In the series Rexx will be showcasing old, often unknown or forgotten acts and tracks from the decade when electronic music was truly the new wave.
Rexx Arkana has been a club/radio DJ and promoter since the mid-80s and headlined festivals on several continents and currently holds a residency at DEFCON, NYC's current longest-running weekly scene party. He is also the founder and lyricist of Brudershaft and one half of harsh electro act FGFC820.
Says Rexx: "For years I've tortured my daughters and (bandmate) Dracos with this music. By joining up with Side-Line, I can now torture...er, entertain...a whole new audience. Not everything you hear will be obscure and maybe not all of it will be 'good.' Then again, one person's trash is another person's treasure."
If you've got a favorite musical memory from the 80s that you'd like to share, email Rexx your requests at firstname.lastname@example.org . Rexx Arkana's 80sObscurities previous playlists are also available on Facebook and YouTube.
Welcome aboard Rexx!
