“This is indeed amazing” – Andrew Weatherall, NTS Music Is Not For Everyone
“Treading the line between dubby bounce and housey thrust” –Shout4Music
Mr. Hare (real name Adam Hare) has been remixing Rude Audio tracks for the past two years. With his new ‘Half Moon Lane Glitter’ remix, he ups the tempo and adds a funky bassline. Cutting his teeth as a DJ at The Rollerdisco (Renaissance Rooms) in Vauxhall, where he has pumped out dubstep, drum n bass, and hip hop as the alternative to the main commercial DJ room, he has gone on to play many club nights and raves, including Industry London, NW10, Scumtek and squat raves playing Drum n Bass into the early hours.
The original version of ‘Half Moon Lane Glitter’ is but one track from the four-track ‘Rudest’ EP that reflects the band’s love of short and sweet stompathons – pulsating electronics meet staccato piano, uptown. The art and film for the accompanying video were created by Robert Bell.

Rude Audio is Mark Ratcliff (arrangement, production and keyboards), Amanda Greatorex (vocals and lyrics), Eucalypta LV (guest vocals), Lamis Harper (piano and keys), Tony Shea (guitar and ostrich guitar), and Owain Lloyd (mixing desk and lyrics), who had just toured with Paul Weller and Stereophonics.
This DJ and production collective, aged 19-53, is rooted in the gutters of south London and north east England. They put on brilliant underground parties, create critically acclaimed electronic music, engineer for top artists and appear at events with an open-minded underground ethos.
On this latest EP, the band refines their trademark sound and fuses their love of woozy dub with throbbing electronics, situated in the hinterland between melodic and relentless. Their three distinctly dubby and balaeric releases have garnered radio play and support from Don Letts, Tom Robinson, Gideon Coe and Nemone on Radio 6, Max Reinhardt on Radio 3, Rob Da Bank on Radio 1 and John Kennedy on XFM.
Currently Rude Audio are hosts and residents at Kentish Town’s Flaxon Ptootch, an underground music and gallery space where they DJ and play alongside special guests for monthly free gigs and parties. They’ve achieved cult status among those in the know in the local electronica scene. Former guests include The Chemical Brothers, Patrick Forge, Andrew Weatherall, and Jakwob. This off-the-beaten-track venue has also allowed them to refine and road test their own tracks.
