Keith Tenniswood (better known as Radioactive Man and to most perhaps best as one half of Two Lone Swordsmen with Andrew Weatherall) is one of those cult status DJ’s – skirting the vanguards of rave culture serving as the UK’s figurehead of Drexcyian born electro. Speak to many a contemporary and they cite R_man as one of their major influences and a producer and DJ doing very much his own thing. Tenniswood was in fact the first UK rep to bring DJ Stingray over to the UK to his infamous Control Tower parties – his fierce 150 bpm militant electro label co-run with Dexorcist and still vehemently carries the flag for that magnificently heavy beat.
Live, he’s performed in many stand out situations as Radioactive Man as resident at Bloc festival, regular sessions at London home from home fabric as well as international festival and club dates – a highlight being at Sonar in front of 8000 international music fans before Jeff Mills and Mad Mike. His resilience to stick with a full hardware set up is guarantees that his trademark warmth and personality envelopes the crowd making the best outlet for his raw machine funk sound.
