About the DJ's
Russ Marland: Russ has been invited to play for Jacked every year. He is one of the most knowledgeable DJ's in the north of England. He started his career in a record shop back in 1986 at Spin Inn Disc Centre Manchester and eventually opened his own shop Manchester Underground in the 90's. He DJ'd at Angels in Burnley back in 1990 and then went on to play at Oz in Blackpool. From there he gained a residency with Mike Pickering at Shine@The Hacienda from 1991 - 1994. But it was in 1994 that he came into his own with a residency at the legendary club night "Out in the Sticks" in Todmorden. The night, which he also promoted, ran every Saturday for nine years until 2003. Showcasing the very best Soulful House/US Garage DJ's from both sides of the pond this night truly deserves its iconic status
Elliot Eastwick: Like Russ, Elliot's Djing career began in 1992 at Manchesters infamous Haçienda, playing frivilous Disco sets in the clubs Gay Traitor, It was here he fell over his soon to be partner in crime Miles Holloway. Miles had decks, Elliot had a couple of contacts and they were off. Picking up his first residency at the boardwalks now defunct 'yellow' night alongside journalist Dave Haslam. It was here he taught himself to experiment a little, playing Disco next to Soul, House, and weird Funky Nuggets.The gigs at the Haçienda coninued, playing support to Sister Sledge, Rose Royce, the Pet Shop Boys and various others.
In 1993 came an offer Elliot couldn't turn down. A new club was being opened in the nearby city of Leeds, Hard Times was to become one of the most respected and underground of the british 'superclubs'. With Eastwick and Hollway at the wheel this was sure to be one of the most solid resident team ups in the UK, outplaying the likes of Danny Tenaglia, Todd Terry, Derrick Carter.
In 1994 came there first studio outfit, as salt city orchestra the pair recorded 'storm' for the awesome Tribal UK label. It instantly became the labels biggest selling record and planted the seed for Paper Recordings, the label they set up with their drinking freind's in the summer of 94 and provided Paper with a handful of underground classics, 'The Book', 'Downtime', 'Wastepaper' etc. Word spread fast and soon enough the pair were remixing for the likes of Underworld, Moloko, The Sneaker Pimps and Marshall Jefferson and releasing records and mix albums on Pagan and Paper. Elliot left Hard Times in 1996 to concentrate on his homegrown 'Robodisco' ...this night is still in full effect and whilst releasing It's quirky mix albums it continues to be a vehicle for Elliots sideways slant on house. The pair [he and Holloway] also began touring the world Djing....[until Elliot developed a fear of flying]
In 1997 things went full circle and Elliot and Miles were asked to be the Saturday night residents at the Haçienda. This time with full control of the night. The club shut down 6 weeks later. [they cursed it] but not before Elliot managed to play the last record. This can be seen in reincarnation the the film 24 hour party people.
