Saturday 26th March 2011

Following hot on the heels of the Stephane Pompougnac & Jose Padilla event last November, we’re back with another exclusive event guaranteed to get you fired up for a fun filled funky night of Disco madness.

We are genuinely very excited to be bringing you an amazing line-up of what we consider to be the very best in past, present and future dance music.

For the first time in Jersey, we are joined by 3 hugely influential DJs and producers, who between them have not only shaped the course of dance music history, but are pioneers of the massive Nu-Disco, Edits and House scene currently sweeping across the worlds best clubs and festivals.

In addition to our Special Guest DJs, we are also being joined by some of Jersey’s finest resident DJs, playing everything from cool funked up electronic beats through to some classic Hip Hop sounds.

Once again, the event will be staged over three stunning rooms, “Celestial”,
“Sirocco” & “Lazy Jack”. With something different in every room, be sure not to miss out on this fantastic event.

Welcome to the DiscoTek!

2011 also sees Firethorn Productions proudly supporting Teenage Cancer Trust Jersey, this means that for every event we hold, money raised will go towards TCT, a Charity devoted to improving the lives of teenagers and young adults with Cancer.

AN INTRODUCTION TO OUR GUEST DJS

TODD TERJE

Todd is blowing up big time!.... He has got people from all corners of the world going crazy about him, he understands them, he’s fresh, he’s not boring and too serious with his tunes, he cracks the depression of the clubbers mind and loves it.

Following a string of celebrated releases leaning on everything from kitschy euro sounds to deep funk and latin jazz, the relatively new to the scene Todd Terje has already made his mark within dance music circuits. Gems such as the monster “Eurodans” and the latin disco-fuelled edit of Jacko’s “Can’t Help it” under his Tangoterje edit-moniker instantly made industry types such as Pete Tong, Gilles Peterson and clubbers alike go bananas, and whatever the 25 year old Norwegian puts his fingers on, it always comes out with that crucial blend of musicality and playfulness.

Growing up in the rural village of Mjøndalen, dance music influences were scarce, and no, there was never any Diskoklubb there. Not a lot of obscure disco or acid house in his milk either. However, during the early/mid nineties dance culture sneaked it way into even the most remote parts of Norway, thanks to the popularity of acts like The Prodigy and national radio stations filling prime time slots with underground jocks Olle Abstract and Pål “Strangefruit” Nyhus.

In 2001 Terje got in touch with Prins Thomas, who was at the time working at HS Records in Oslo. Thomas soon recognized his potential, and helped pushing Terje in the right directions. Oslo is a small place where like minded folks tend to join forces, and with his thorough musical understanding and nerdy like interest in old and new records spanning from that new Idjut Boys 12” to experimental synth bands very few of us have ever heard of, he soon became one of the key players on the Oslo electronic disco scene. Besides working on his own projects, Terje’s played on some of Prins Thomas’ tracks, and not to mention his remix of the Lindstrøm 12” “Another Station”.

Is it house, funk, techno or disco? Terje speaks of catchy rhythms, dubby sounds, dreamy synth layers, cinematic moods, a playful approach and searching for that one nerve when asked to describe his music, and the resistance to being pigeonholed is obvious.

Remixing everything from Paul Simon, The Bangles, Chic, Boney M and Stevie Wonder, whatever Todd puts his hands to comes out sounding so fresh and glitchy, the boy can do no wrong!

Todd Terje is definitely one to look out for.

BILL BREWSTER

Whether he’s taking the roof off a club with his unique selection of deep and tough house music, enchanting a backroom with a genre-bending set of disco, Balearic, rock and hip hop or playing chillout music by a pool in Ibiza, Bill Brewster is the man for all occasions.

He began DJing in the 1980s, but came into his own in the early 1990s, particularly during a two-year stint in New York running DMC’s office, where nights at the Sound Factory and hanging out with Danny Tenaglia gave him the musical grounding you can still hear in his music today.

There are few still playing regularly today that have his dedication, eclecticism and encyclopedic knowledge of music.

His parallel life is as a writer and with his long-term partner-in-crime Frank Broughton they have written three books together, including the acclaimed Last Night A DJ Saved My Life and How To DJ (Properly).

These days, the pair have taken time out from writing books to concentrate on building their labour-of-love website DJhistory.com. They also throw parties of legendary quality in the shape of Low Life, their warehouse rave-up that has now been running an incredible 15 years.

Bill has been working in the industry for almost 30 years including the running of various labels from Twisted UK and Forensic in the ’90s to Disco Sucks and, lately, Anorak.

MATTY T & BEN TERRY - TIRK RECORDS

Tirk is a label that continues the Nuphonic tradition of releasing music that is cutting edge, yet accessible. From the “kraut-pop” of Fujiya & Miyagi, to dance music eccentric Maurice Fulton’s electronic punk excursions as Syclops. To a retrospective covering the work of crooner Louie Austen, UK electro pioneer Greg Wilson’s Credit To The Edit series, and work by the kings of eclecticism, the Idjut Boys.

The label refuses to confine itself to pre-conceived notions of genre or style, having an keen eye on the underground, whilst still retaining a pop sensibility. The label’s track record shows a proven ability to recognise new and exciting music and to market that music in a 21st century environment.

Tirk’s artists take the best music of the past and combine it with the best of the present, to provide a glimpse into the future.

Artists on the Tirk Label include: Idjut Boys, Sorcerer, The Time & Space Machine, Sean P, New Young Pony Club, Syclops, Greg Wilson, Fujiya & Miyagi, Sugardaddy, Louie Austen, Love Supreme, George Demure, Chaz Jankel, Drrtyhaze, The Bees, Martin Rushent, Arcade Lover, Architeq, Morten Sorensen, Hedford Vachal, Red Rackem, The Unabombers and Son Of Sound.
