Rising above flavor-of-the-month dance trends, veteran NYC DJs Eamon Harkin (FUN, Sunday Best, Wurst Edits) and James [email protected]#$%^ Friedman (Refuse, Go Commando, Throne of Blood Recordings) have joined forces to create Prime Time, a showcase for classically-minded yet forward-thinking dance music, irrespective of genres.
Think disco, house and techno for grown folks rather than nu-ravers, somewhere between New York's legendary Fixed nights, Glasgow's long-running Optimo party, and PS1's Warm Up series.
For our first edition at Santos Party House we welcome the legendary Greg Wilson. Greg Wilson has a pedigree stretching back to the original disco era. He first came to national prominence in the early 1980's as the first to champion New York's emerging Electro-Funk sound and he was the first DJ to mix records on national TV in 1983. He was the first dance music DJ to become resident at Manchester's legendary Hacienda, then very much an indie and 'alternative' music venue.
Fast forward to 2007 and Greg is back with full force turning in remixes for DFA, Rong Music, a sublime mix CD for 20:20 vision and the latest podcast for the one and only Resident Advisor.
Armed with a laptop, turntables and, of course, his trusty Revox B77 reel-to-reel, Greg brings his alchemic mixing and customised re-edits to NY to play Prime Time at Santos Playhouse on Saturday October 25th...
