The Midland's most revered techno brand has enjoyed as much hype as ever since returning from a two year hiatus. Having recently announced that it would be reconvening at NextDoor to celebrate its 19th birthday, and starring guests like Dave Clarke and Ø [PHASE], it's easy to see why. Tickets obviously sold out in no time.

For those that missed out though, have no fear, Atomic Jam have announced the details of the second half of their birthday celebrations, which will take place on January 23rd again at NextDoor.

In reliable fashion, the line up is pure heavyweight bliss, and not for the casual onlooker, with the top of the line up boasting the addition of dark and twisted techno deviant Shifted.

Since breaking the scene back in 2011 with a killer debut release on Luke Slater's Mote-Evolver, a label he has gone on to become a central member of, Shifted has been gaining a serious rep as a producer that can combine the most fierce of dancefloor know-how with an ingenious ear for ambience and atmosphere, making his sets and productions both cerebral and visceral affairs. Witness that in his Boiler Room set above.

He will be joined by a live session from brothers Truss and Tessela.

As individuals, Tessela has been a regular on labels like R&S since he started out, who have understandably snapped up his broken, heavy hitting, bass heavy excursions, that fall somewhere in between old skool rave, bass music, and industrial techno, whilst his older brother Truss has been redefining the limits of brutalist techno, with regular collaborations with Perc pushing the limits of the sound to breaking point.

The two varying styles really come together stunningly under their TR\ER moniker, as is hinted at in their back to back in the Boiler Room above.

He/aT and Stephanie Sykes as ever provide the highly skilled support. Tickets are bound to sell out in super quick time once again, act fast to secure yours. Get your Atomic Jam tickets here.
