The career of Alex Kidd reads like the dream wish list of any hard dance DJ. Over the past ten years The Kidd has caused more waves than the most turbulent of tsunamis and he continues his reign today as one of the undisputed leaders of Hard Dance.
With a lifelong obsession for fast and furious music, Alex Kidd is renowned for being one of the true innovators within the hard spectrum. An AK set is more than just your average DJ set. It is an experience and an education in harder music. A constant morphing of style and inspiration means that each set is an elaborate and imaginative onslaught of beats, samples and technical wizardary, all packaged up by one of the most entertaining and engaging performers hard dance has ever seen.
The journey of The Kidd began more than a decade ago in the depths of Manchester, starting working life behind the counter of his local record store. Carving a reputation for himself on the local circuit soon led to him becoming Goodgreef's first ever resident and Label Manager. Combining fresh ideas, inventive music policies and an ever growing loyal following, it wasn't long before both entities were setting the world of harder dance on fire, moulding the future of the scene, and making hard dance history.
It was 2007 however that Alex really made his mark. Already boasting regular appearances at all the biggest global stages, summer 2007 saw the Kidd’s name on every dance festival in the UK as well as many further afield. These included Global Gathering, Colourfest, Planet Love, WestFest and the mighty Dance Valley. As if this didn’t keep him busy enough, a residency with Keep Ibiza Tidy and a tour of Australia with hardstyle superhouse Q-Dance was thrown in there too! The Kidd was duly rewarded for this successful year, when crowned H.D.A Best DJ 2008, along with various other awards. The icing on the cake came in the form of a highly acclaimed Radio One Essential Mix, sharing the Hall of Fame with worldwide ambassadors of dance music Come 2008, spurred by independent visions, Alex Kidd moved away from the Goodgreef/PFA remit to launch his bastard child brand Kiddfectious.
Having just celebrated it's second birthday, Kiddfectious has so far achieved an enormous amount in its two year existence. Hand in hand with its quirky festival sister brand Kiddstock, Alex Kidd and the KF team have developed a diverse and innovative record label, staged club events at some of the finest venues, released highly acclaimed albums and compilations, taken the Kiddstock festival vibe to the four corners of the UK, Kiddfected Ibiza and are now prepping Kiddfectious Airlines for the 2010 World Tour!
Highlights in the AK Personal Record of Achievement are abundant and include numerous Radio One appearances including a recent INMWT live show, numerous tours of over 20 countries across every continent including Russia, Australia, Canada, USA and Europe and mixing of over 15 compilation albums worldwide The Kidd’s passion and support in innovative music and future talent has meant the successful launching of tomorrows stars Kidd Kaos and Argy. This is further reflected in his dedication to lecturing and teaching of Music Production at Manchester Midi School, educating budding producers and DJs.
Alex Kidd is one of hard dance’s true investors, be it through his own productions, events and performance or through his support and dedication in tomorrow’s stars. This unadulterated passion and energy has been the reason for his success so far, and the reason that he will continue his reign both in and out of the limelight for many years to come.

Tyranoid/Strongstream, also known as Tyranoid vs Michael Strongstream, is a producer duo making hard electronic dance music. They are based in Helsinki, Finland.
Tyranoid (Rauli Valo) and Michael Strongstream (Mikael Wahlström) made their first tracks together in 2003. Both Tyranoid and Michael Strongstream have been into electronic music since the early 90's, although until 1998 their primary musical interest was in metal and industrial music.
Their liking for hard and aggressive music is still evident. Tyranoid/Strongstream's tracks are a mixture of different influences from various genres of electronic dance music, e.g. hard nrg, techno, acid, freeform, industrial and psy. They prefer real analogue synthesizers and effect units for edgier and warmer sound. Their tracks include lots of samples from films, television, games and beyond. Tyranoid/Strongstream try to make tunes that differ from mainstream hard dance while still being enjoyable to listen and dance to.
Most of all, Tyranoid/Strongstream is a live act. They love playing on stage and having a good contact with the audience. Tyranoid/Strongstream holds residency at Fusion Drive underground parties in Helsinki. Their live gig highlights so far include Konemetsä festival, Club Säde in Helsinki and a two-club mini tour in Poland.
Tyranoid/Strongstream's music is influenced by bands and DJs such as Carbon Based, Hardfloor, Kraftwerk, Lab4, Ministry, DJ Neon, Nine Inch Nails, Prodigy and DJ Proteus.
