WHEN Atomic Hooligan's Terry Ryan arrives in Australia this month, he will pursue one goal.``My main goal in life is to rock the crowd - that's my thing. It's better than sex, drugs - everything,' Ryan said.Ryan is in the country to

perform a series of dates, including a set at Nutshell Breaks on Saturday night.It will be Ryan's first trip Down Under and he said he plans to show the Aussie crowds a good time.``I want everyone to dance and have a good time. I'm a party DJ, so they can expect me to put

everything I have into it.''As one of the UK's foremost breaks producers, Atomic Hooligan has been part of the growing breaks scene for six years, namely working with influential label Botchit Breaks.Renown for dropping a variety of styles in his set,

Ryan's skills behind the decks saw him named as one of the UK's Top 5 breaks DJs by DJ Mag.Although he is namely associated with breaks, Ryan avoids limiting himself to a single genre.``My sets are mostly based around breaks, but more around having a good time.''

``I play a lot of up-tempo hip hop - new and old - a lot of dirty house stuff, funk and even some drum'n'bass.''Ryan will tour Australia solo representing Atomic Hooligan while fellow Hooligan Matt Welch remains in the UK

working on the pair's forthcoming album.``You can expect to hear a very eclectic album, some strong vocal tracks, tracks to throw your hands in the air to, stuff to drive to or

stuff to sit and chill on the sofa with your girlfriend or boyfriend to.''``That's what we want from the album. We want it to be part of your life, an essential item in your everyday life''

Nutshell Breaks will be held at Star Newcastle on Saturday night from 10pm. and also feature Auxilary, Kato, Fallon and Anfrenz.Tickets are $15 pre sale from PDMS, Ramjet,

Abicus or the Star or $20 on the door.
