NYC legend and the lady behind Firehouse Recordings Kim Ann Foxman is kicking off her residency at Good Room with another legend, Greg Wilson, doing a Reel to Reel set.
Greg began DJing in 1975 and is regarded as one of the most important figures on the UK dance scene. He was a pioneer of mixing in the UK and in 1983 he became the first ‘dance music’ specialist hired for a regular weekly session at Manchester’s now legendary Haçienda club. Greg was instrumental in breaking the new electronic, post-disco records coming out of New York, a sound he has dubbed ‘Electro-Funk’. Nominated by DJ magazine for outstanding contribution, and also named amongst their top twenty remixers of all-time, Greg’s edits and mixes continue to feature on the playlists of DJ’s in every continent.
Kim Ann Foxman is a rare visionary who yearns to celebrate the golden era of authentic dance music whilst feeding from her fluid understanding of its imminent and intriguing future. After stepping away from singing with New York’s neo-disco collective Hercules and Love Affair she returned to her fundamental passions: rocking clubs as a DJ and producing raw electronic music. She started Firehouse recordings to represent New York, represent its flavour and be a part of the music history, putting out tracks that are super-dynamic, gorgeous and weird.
