Decks and The City – 27.4.18
Having taken some time off over the Easter break the DATC crew will be back in full effect on the last Friday in April with another ace line-up of supreme DJ talent. Three stalwarts from our stable will be spinning the wheels of steel and getting your feet tapping. Come down and join us.
9pm – 10.30am DJ Tom Surr
DJ Tom Surr is a former front-line police officer of the Metropolitan Police Service and is now on the path to becoming a lawyer. Since his parents bought him a Drum & Bass Arena compilation CD (mixed by the legendary Goldie!) for his 16th birthday, he has collected all forms of dance music. Aged 17 he began going to clubs like Fabric and Gabriel Szatan’s warehouse parties, which exposed him to more unfamiliar genres of music like jungle, dubstep, house and grime. Fast forward a decade, through eight Glastonbury festivals and five summers out in Ibiza, he’s still immersed in house. He is looking forward to playing out at Decks and the City at Horse and Groom.
Here are a selection of tracks he might play:
Sinnerman (Felix Da Housecat Remix) - Nina Simone
Girl - NVOY
Love Comedown - Bicep
10.30am – midnight – Greg Cosford
Greg has had a passion for music since an early age and bought his first dance record in 1991. It wasn't until 2001 that he bought his decks and got into the dj scene. After winning a dj competition in 2002 he went on to play clubs and bars around London, as well as being invited to play at parties in Amsterdam and Australia. He works in finance for a global FMCG company looking after IT investment. Numbers by day, beats by night, Greg has a broad taste in music but favours playing tracks that simply want to get you moving on the dance floor and put a smile on your face.
midnight – 1.30am Pierre Moreno
Pierre spins regularly at various venues throughout Shoreditch as a young talent who stays faithful to the roots of House music. Hailing from France, he has surprised crowds in Switzerland and Bali with a unique soulful sound that is both reminiscent of the 90s New York Garage scene and heavily influenced by jazzy lounge (Hotel Costes compilations for example). Here in London, the Frenchman has continued to develop his craft in parallel to business management studies, maintaining top playlists and continuously looking for new secret weapons.For this iteration of Decks in the City, Pierre Mono prepares a summery blend of deep house, 90s vocal cuts, and modern twists on old classics.
1.30am – close - Ali Miraj (resident)
