1. Rob Reum - Backstreet Atlanta
There is not much debate regarding the most legendary nightclub in Atlanta. Opening in 1975, Backstreet was one of the only 24-hour dance spaces in the city. The almost 50,000 sq. ft. space was and still is considered a gay mecca. However, many walks of life found themselves there late into night and often into the next day. Ask any nightlife veteran of Atlanta and they will surely tell you a tale or two. DJ Rob Reum was the resident DJ there from 1992 until it closed 2004.
2. Ian James - Lush, Liquified
The late night party has always been a major part of any underground scene. If there was one after hours event that epitomized the roots of the now flourishing Atlanta nightlife, it was Lush. Every DJ in the city vied for one of the three spots to play each month. The event took place at the legendary Yin Yang Cafe off Spring Street (now Apache Cafe) where a line wrapped around the building at 3 a.m. Ian James was the mastermind behind this event. Not only was he one of the original Liquified resident DJs, but also one of the major players in the scene.
3. DJ Keiran - Earthtone Soundsystem
During the late 90's and throughout 2000's, there was a tight knit group of DJs, sound pros and graphic designers who banded together to form Earththone Soundsystem. Fueled by one of the best set of speakers in the area and a focus on deep underground house, their renegade gatherings in public spaces and all night warehouse raves are still fondly remembered by many. The impact of this group is still felt throughout the southeast and beyond.
4. Yusef Terry - Secrets/Late Nite Sessions
After meeting & being introduced to the House scene in 1998, thanks to Mr. Kai Alce, Yusef started buying records at Satellite Record Store. He then practiced at Wish Clothing Store playing three hours for a $25 gift certificate. There at wish, he was heard by Tiffany Griffin and became, and still is a resident DJ for Secrets. During a Secrets party, at Red's Place, he was asked by Wayne Alan Baugh, aka DJ Red, to play for Late Night Sessions and the rest is history!
5. Raskal - Progressive Mondays/Vinyl Boy
Ronnie “Raskal" has been in the Atlanta nightlife scene since 1996. Best known for his event "Progressive Mondays" running from 1997-2000 held at Joe Muggs. He held a residency with "Vinyl Boy" at the Masquerade between 1999-2000. He also spent nights rocking out the Crescent Room and other late night spots all around Atlanta during that time. He brings a great mix of house, techno and everything in between.
