The Revenge is the alias of Graeme Clark. Graeme began producing in his early teenage years, making a skewed blend of electronic music using a couple of his dad’s old drum machines and a sampler. Influenced by his parents collection of rock, soul and funk as well as eighties daytime radio and the burgeoning rave scene, he began the process of dissecting and reimagining the music.

As a means to get some of these productions out, Graeme set up label Five20East in 1999 with brothers Scott & Ross Langley as an outlet for their own productions.

Graeme has worked with some of Scotland’s finest producers for over 5 years. Collaborative efforts with Sub Club’s Harri and Soul Heaven’s Craig Smith have been consistent and have found homes on labels like Nordic Trax, Jisco Music, Deep Freeze, Underwater, Bosh, as well as Five20East. His own productions for Five20East and his DJ-only edits have had across-the-board support from scene heavyweights including Danny Krivit, Jimpster, Prins Thomas and many more.

Graeme has also provided his engineering experience to several projects over the past few years and has recently mastered Harri & Domenic’s 20 Years Underground / Sub Club mix for Soma as well as new material for Mark E, Jisco and Fine Art Recordings. His other collaborative projects currently include Deportivo Street Team, OOFT!, Cronk Family Enterprises and The Hong Kong Micros. DJ work over the years has included spots with MAW, Sinden, Joe Claussell, Domu, Mark E, Mad Mats and more.

Graeme’s current residency is at Glasgow venue, Ivy where he runs monthly night, OOFT! with fellow DJ and producer, Ali Herron.
