An Integral part of the Baltimore/DC scene, Charles if often credited with helping put the scene on the house music map. In 1992 he joined forces with fellow DJ Scott Henry to launch Fever, a club event that introduced the sounds of electronic music to his hometown. The first event of its kind in that region, the night exploded in popularity almost immediately, attracting upwards of 2,500 people. Featuring such top-notch, internationally renowned talent as Paul Van Dyk,Derrick Carter, and Carl Cox, the biweekly event ran through May 2001.
Maintaining a seven-year residency at Fever helped springboard Feelgood's danceable brand of bangin' hard house to widespread exposure across the East Coast. His popularity quickly bloomed thanks in part to his legendary series of mixed tapes, "Time to Get Ill." He soon developed a club-heavy touring schedule that regularly took him to famed clubs such as Avaland,Sound Factory NYC, and Cro Bar, along with numerous other venues on the West Coast, Canada, Europe, Asia and South America.

Feelgood notes "I definitely try and take the listeners on a musical journey - I like to start out slow and funky and push for a harder ending, a continuous rise."
"I'm far from a purist," he adds. "I incorporate many styles into a single set. I play everything from disco-influenced house to acapella tracks and tech house, and I especially love bootlegs and electro influenced tracks".
The consummated dance floor rocker, Feelgood sums up his musical mission in one sentence: "I just want to do what the name implies, to make people have a good time and go home with a great feeling."

(Aka Alan Oldham, Tresor) Chicago IL/ Berlin
One of Detroit's most talented and venerated techno mixers, DJ T-1000 has been instrumental in the Motor City scene as a label-head and producer as well as DJ. Born Alan Oldham, he spent time as a graphic-design specialist and comics illustrator while studying media at Detroit's Wayne State University. Hired by Derrick May to illustrate the sleeves on a few Transmat releases, Oldham became interested in Detroit's electronic scene, and gradually transformed his Fast Forward radio program on WDET from industrial and fusion into techno. During the show's run, from 1987 to 1992, Oldham introduced thousands of area listeners to Detroit techno via productions from May, Kevin Saunderson, Juan Atkins, Underground Resistance, and Carl Craig — as well as other techno figures like Joey Beltram, Moby, 808 State, and LFO. The show ended in 1992 when an offer to tour with Underground Resistance as the replacement DJ for Jeff Mills proved too difficult to resist. Also in 1992, he formed his own Generator label, the origin of seminal releases by Oldham projects like X-313 ("Interferon", "World Sonik Domination") and TXC as well as tracks by Dave Clarke and Woody McBride. In 1996, Oldham closed Generator and opened a new label, Pure Sonik Records. He also began DJing around the world, gaining a reputation as one of the best Detroit DJs among considerable competition. The DJ T-1000 mix albums Supercollider (a Generator label retrospective) and Live Sabotage: Live in Belgium displayed his mixing genius, while his debut production full-length, Progress, appeared on Tresor in 1999. Oldham also began recording another album, for Astralwerks. In addition, he has recorded for Djax-Up-Beats (also did label artwork), Matrix, and Communique, and has done remix work for Terry Lee Brown, Jr. and the Punisher.
(volume productions/Warlock Records) Rhode Island
Dave Schifino, aka Dj Venom has been an ambassador DJ in the New England rave scene since the mid ninety's. He made his mark as one of the hardest working DJs by releasing a new mixed tape seemingly every month. He has released over 100 mixed tapes in entirety, and 30 mixed cds. His mixes crossed over through countless genres of electronic music, while always displaying precision mixing, and nasty turntable trickery. In 1998, Dave caught a break by dazzling a poolside crowd at the official Winter Music Conference DJ battle. It was a battle for the ages, and much to the chagrin of the witnessing crowd; he placed second to the three time DMC champ Dj Craze. Even though he placed second, that WMC showcase helped launch Dave's career on an international level, and he never looked back....
