Hey everyone, It's-a me! Maru!
Well, the bad news is none of my vacation time falls during a time that I could get out to America for Acen or Reactor this year. However, my contract is up next year in March so I will probably be back for Acen 2009!

I wish I could make it this year but... oh well. If you guys will have me though, I would love to spin in 2009! In the meantime, try to get some videos and such uploaded somewhere so I can live vicariously through others who can attend!

Allan, I'll give you a call when I'm in the states. Khek, I'll need to find out where you are living so we can hang out! I'll be home for almost a month in August so that would be best. Regardless I'll get a hold of you'ze guys.

Gotta go, I'm learning how to make Anpanman lollipops for valentines day. :heart:
-DJ Maru


:mad: :angry: :mad: :angry:
Dood wut in heck are you doing to us!!! It's gonna be 2+ years since our crazy tag set @ acen! No worries, Japan is probably rocking for you. Hit me up bro when ur in town, I'm spinning every weekend in Chicago.

Allen + Beryl + Chris... sounds like both parties are gonna be intense this year! Look forward to seeing my family again :lol:

That'd be my fault, I was busy all day making an update to the stocklist/inventory on mydjsobad.com

I've since sent Allen the first round of info regarding everything, He should be announcing it later today (Monday). It's also going to be posted on bemanistyle and mydjsobad (not sure what time yet though as I haven't written up the whole news post yet). Keep an eye out, it's coming :P

ANIMECENTRAL'S UNDERGROUND GROOVE PRESENTS HARDCORE SYNERGY FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE SOFITEL.

DJ CHUCKY (GUHROOVY) - A name that's synonymous with hardcore music in Japan, DJ CHUCKY is making his 2nd appearance in the U.S. at Anime Central 2008. Although known mostly for his works on several major compilations released in Japan, DJ CHUCKY has released several mix CDs and has also had original works featured in Konami's popular beatmaniaIIDX series. He'll be bringing his blend of bangin' hardcore, gabber and nu-style beats to the Friday night stage.

M-Project (TERRAFORM MUSIC) - Having been called "Tokyo's best kept hardcore secret", M-Project is taking the stage for the 2nd year in a row at Friday night's party. Best known for creating and remixing tracks in the Makina style, M-Project's tracks have been on some fan favorite white label vinyls and several compilations released by SHARPNELSOUND and HARDCORE TANO*C. You won't want to miss this upbeat hardcore performance.

New DJs:

DJ Da/Le (AVSS) - The man behind "Otaku Records", DJ Da/Le is a fan of anime and otaku culture who applies these interests into his mixes. He performed a small set at ACen 2007's car show and acted as VJ during DJ CHUCKY, NO+CHIN and M-Project's sets, this year DJ Da/Le is taking center stage to put on a performance that fans of anime and Japanese culture will surely want to catch.

DJ Silver (HAPPYHARDCORE.COM) - The owner of Happyhardcore.com, DJ Silver has had his hands in so many projects it'd be impossible to name them all. Fans of Konami's Bemani series have most definitely heard his work in the Dance Dance Revolution series over the past several years, even if they don't know it. He was also the leading force behind the popular "HARDCORE SUPER J-TRANCE PARTY" series of J-Pop remix CDs. Saying that he's a driving force in the worldwide hardcore scene would be an understatement, and we're honored to have such a talented and well known hardcore performer take the stage at Anime Central 2008.

DJ Comet - (Shy Guy Recordings) The first (and only) American to play at any of the super huge HARDCORE TIL I DIE parties in the UK, DJ Comet has had a hand in several major hardcore projects and along with DJ Silver has had his work in Konami's Dance Dance Revolution series. As a fan of Japanese Hardcore, he'll be playing a special themed set this year to compliment the rest of our special guest DJs.

Jakazid (NUKLEUZ) - Hardcore fans would know him best for his underground "Aural Adrenaline" mix CD series, while fans of internet culture would recognize his viral "Cillit Bang (The Hardcore Cleaning Sensation)" remix and video. Recently lending his talent to several J-Core releases, Jakazid will be performing on behalf of both the UK and Japanese Hardcore scenes. And we couldn't be more excited.

DM Ashura (BMS) - Starting off as a fan who created some of the most popular DDR remixes ever created, DM Ashura is now a featured artist in Konami's Dance Dance Revolution franchise. This year being his first appearance at Anime Central, he'll be performing in support of his full length album "Digital Maestro".

Jaka is really looking forward to playing too, which is really cool. Initially we invited him out to just hang out since he knows several of the Japanese DJs already, and then he offered to play a set as well. It was like a match made in heaven I swear.

He tells me he has some surprises in store for his set, so I'm definitely looking forward to that.

I'm stoked for the Bubble. We waited in line for about three hours and I think we were like tenth. We started random chants of "yaoi" and made friends with most of the shirts. I do have a question. It's only my third year, Underground Groove is 18+ right? Or am I hearing wrong? :excl:
Anise Tatlin: Colonel, what's your secret for being so strong?
Jade Curtiss: Simple. I drink people's blood.
Anise Tatlin: Huh?
Jade Curtiss: It's so difficult when people take me seriously.

Water, water, water.

The soap bubble and groove start around 10ish on their respective nights as I recall. I think the UG may start a little earlier.

Get there early too. There are literally thousands of attendees that wait in line saturday night for the soap bubble.
