Mike Redman’ s project ‘DEFORMER’ has been internationally breaking down musical barriers since the early 90’s.
As a pioneer of Dutch hardcore Jungle music DEFORMER has produced tracks that would later be filed under different sub-genres partly defined by the alias.
DEFORMER music is considered radio-unfriendly, bold, dark and unorthodox, a soundtrack for audio outcasts and musical misfits. DEFORMER has achieved legendary status for the project’s perpetual reinvention and the incessantly outrageous and shocking horror-themed theatrical performances and record covers.
DEFORMER is hailed for putting horror into the genre, inspiring a new generation of artists and labels, but audiences too. Where ‘moshpits’ were usually a thing in Metal, DEFORMER early on introduced a Drum ’n Bass crowd to the phenomenon and it never disappeared.
DEFORMER has an incredible trackrecord setting festivals on fire such as Out- look, Lowlands, Boomtown, PRSPCT XL and has destroyed the club circuit for 25+ years on end.
You won’t find an act similar to DEFORMER as DJ MAG recently stated: ‘DEFORMER operates in a category of one’
And besides that, not booking DEFORMER means your event is too soft…
