Profilo:
Acen was an early 1990s UK rave and hardcore breakbeat techno producer.
It was with Production House that Acen released his first hit "Close Your Eyes", which instantly became a hardcore breakbeat anthem. In quick succession Acen released tunes such as "Trip II The Moon", "Window In The Sky" and his debut album "75 Minutes". "Trip II The Moon" is Acen's landmark release, it’s popularity in the club scene ensured that only a trilogy of remix releases could satisfy public demand. It remains a key record in DJs' record boxes to this day. Even though Acen's releases were not licensed to majors, remaining on Production House, "Close Your Eyes" went on to be Music Week's Dance Single of the Year and "Trip II the Moon" went Top 40 in 1992. Later Acen experimented with Drum n Bass releasing tracks such as "No More" and "116.7" on Warner's subsidiary F-111. More recently however, he can be seen behind the lens directing/cutting films and music promos. Acen's latest release "Dirty Raver" (2004) appeared on Rennie Pilgrem's TCR label of which, the video was also directed by himself.

Legendary!. A genius in sampling. Helped set the mood for what was to come (but never even came close).

Amazing, tunes that I come back to over the years, they where far ahead of there time that is why they stood out from the crowd, the James bond samples was just pure genius for the time, blew me away when I first heard, love all of Acen earlier stuff 91-94.

Acen Razvi is one of the founders of the early 90's UK breakbeat rave sound that progressed into drum & bass.

The Trip To The Moon trilogy and Close Your Eyes (XXX & Optikonfusion!) alone are reason enough to place Acen right at the top of the UK rave scene circa 1991-1992.

He took samples that were already established (the Amen break, the "Mr. Kirk, Your Son Is Dead" speech from Think - Once You Understand).

He took samples that were outrageously dangerous for his label (The Doors - Celebration Of The Lizard, The Beatles - Here Comes The Sun).

He took samples that no-one else thought of (sampling the James Bond movie "You Only Live Twice". Twice.).

Acen put all these samples together, and like a true alchemist, produced something that was uniquely stunning.

Respect.
