The Outlaws Intro:
are from Bristol, UK and they're working hard to sever any association the city has with funereal trip hop or boring Nineties Drum and Bass. They work tirelessly putting on club nights and playing out, spreading their mixed up, chopped up vision of good parties and great records. They presented and produced a show on London's Kiss 100fm Friday evenings 2002-2003 which received high praise and was described as somewhere between Radio Soulwax
's legendary Solid Steel sessions. Working off 4 decks and 2 CD players they created live re-edits and remixes of classic tunes with the newest underground music. Many of these cuts went on to be bootlegged onto vinyl and then played out by DJs all over the world.
They have an album out: "Too Many Fools Following Too Many Rules", which captures the magic of the sets that have made them so popular. It perfectly illustrates their blueprint for dance music - accessible, exciting, inventive and enjoyable, oh and it's also the best party CD ever. They also have a highly collectable series of mixes that they give out free at gigs each one has a full colour cover and an individually spray painted disc and contains a mix better than almost any album you'd pay for.
Key moments in the history of The Outlaws
include: Their set at the legendary Lost Vagueness at the Glastonbury festival, the set they missed at Space in Ibiza, the New York roof party with Armand Van Helden
and the session where they wrecked London's posh Bloomberg gallery (the shell suited 80's dancing girls at The ICA were pretty cool too). There have also been countless warehouse parties and free parties in the beautiful English countryside that were just as incredible as any club gig too
They also coaxed Jimmy Cauty from The KLF out of retirement to play their album launch party and put a 20k sound system in a 200 capacity club the following month. On their return to Glastonbury in 2004 they filled the Dance Tent with ravers at 1pm in the afternoon for a session that was described as "More like a punk gig than a DJ set"
The pair met in Leeds: Peter was studying for his MA in English while putting on free parties (he built a huge sound system when he was just 19) and running clubs, including the highly rated Technique. Steve was the finest breaks DJ in the city and also from the West Country; when they joined forces their combination of breaks, hip-hop, pop, techno, acid and electro proved to be unstoppable. After conquering Leeds they both moved to back Bristol where Peter managed the "World Famous" Blue Mountain Club before leaving to DJ full time. The Outlaws
run a legendary residency at The Arc in Bristol where they play for 4 or 5 hours and have consistently sold out for two years. They've DJ'ed with everyone from Mr Scruff
and Chris Liberator to UK DMC Champion (and fellow Bristolian) DJ Quest and old school legends Ratpack, but it's getting hard to find guests better or more exciting than The Outlaws
themselves and they're only 24.
