We are excited to have DJ Hyperactive back on the podcast series with this 3 hour set recorded live from Scene 23. The event took place on July 26th, 2014 at the Works in Downtown Detroit along side artists Angel Alanis and Deraout from Colombia. DJ Hyperactive was born and raised on Chicago’s South Side. Rocking vinyl for over 30 years and soon jumped in the studio at the start of the 90s. His early output surfaced on his own imprint, Contact Records, along with releases on pioneering labels such as Drop Bass, Communique, Sounds, Analog, UC and the list goes on. In ‘97 DJ Hyperactive headed west to kick off the opening of Higher Source Records & Gear in Huntington Beach. This move also marked the start of 4 Track Records (now 4trk). After nearly a 20 year run in Los Angeles, he decided to return to Chicago and set up camp again.
After seeing chart topping success of Len Faki’s remix of Hyperactive classic “Wide Open” on Len’s Figure label and the release of his 25HRs in A Day ep with Raiz and Markus Suckut remixes on Los Angeles based Droid Recording run by Mr. Drumcell. Hyperactive’s current focus is set on a list of remixes and the re-launch of 4trk (vinyl + dig). Recent remixes include reworking of “The Word” by Luis Flores on Detroit based Blank Code Records and remix of Impact Unit’s “Silent Steps”. Upcoming remixes list consists of Manic Brothers “Sledge Hammer” on Sian’s Octopus label, Andre Morant’s “Signals”, and co-remix of Beltway w/Submerge both to see release on 4trk!
