Altern 8

Formed in the embryonic pre rave days of 1990 by one of the biggest names in UK Dance Music: Mark Archer and his then musical partner Chris Peat. The duo originally recorded together under the name Nexus 21, influenced heavily by the early techno sound of Detroit.

As the the Rave movement took root in countless illegal parties up and down the UK, The duo embraced the anonymity that (the now iconic) ‘A’ marked face masks and chemical warfare suits gave them, allowing them to perform live on stage in front of thousands of adoring fans whilst eluding arrest and staying one step ahead of the law, eager to crush the defiant spirit of Rave and the forces behind it
