Part of Egg London's 10th Birthday Celebrations
On Friday 17th May as part of the 10 x 10 birthday celebrations at EGG, headliner and house hero Felix Da Housecat is playing with a very special guest - DJ Pierre.
In a world obsessed with labelling an ever-evolving genre, Felix Da Housecat is dedicated to making the people dance. He is one of those rare, charisma-oozing characters, whose musical and mental eccentricity come from a genuine place. He’s never afraid to take a risk to reach new ground. It’s this blend of qualities that has kept him in such high reverence in the electronic field for two decades now, and which has ensured that his music has been a consistently captivating force.
DJ Pierre is a Chicago-born artist who is often credited as one of the founding fathers of acid house: 1987′s “Acid Tracks” is thought to be one of the earliest examples of the style, and is still one of the genre’s most recognizable records. In the 25 years since then, Pierre has remained a prolific producer and purveyor of Chicago house music, founding his own DJP imprint back in 1999, followed by his most recent label, Afro Acid, in 2008. Earlier this year he teamed up with Green Velvet to release Acid Trax 2012, while he continues to take the Afro Acid name to clubs around the world.
