Prism & Spectrum Promotions

Oxford, UK

Prism and later Spectrum were
Oxford based underground club
nights from promoter & DJ Kieran Alexis.

The clubs ran from 1989 - 1995.
Chicago, Detroit, Manchester,
London, Amsterdam, Berlin >
& Oxford!

Acid House with Italo, Belgian, Dutch and NYC USA imports as the primary sounds, with a strong influence of Hi-NRG, EBM & post punk alternative synthwave foundational club sounds with both Kieran Alexis and Tim Aldiss as residents. Local guests were standard, although plenty of out of town DJs did come through. Tim has a small archive of free rave events.

Through the many iterations [ongoing] of the scene, the club stayed true to the core techno house attitude - playing house, techno, progressive, hard house and much much more by the end of the club. Dave Clarke even guested, along with various DIY soundsystem Djs. Billy Nasty never did show up.

Seminal live PAs included;
-Groove Armada's first ever gig as 'The System'.
I spotted Andy and gave him his first gigs, both as a DJ and as an act.
-UBIK played live. Amazing, ground breaking.
-Sunset Regime - screaming northern piano anthems!
DJ Phil Good - who went on to write the Point Blank DJ teaching course.

Current activity - DJing new music, working with Buslife Records as well as guesting on Asylum Digital Radio mixing remastered lesser known gems.
Live on Mondays 6pm - 8pm GMT
> TUNE IN LIVE!!
