We are very pleased to announce the details of our next party on the 29th October 2010, brought to you along with our good friends at Bored Audio, we present The Revenge!
Even if you possess only a mild passing interest in house music, you’ll have stumbled across The Revenge by now. You may not even be aware of it but chances are at some stage over that past 12 months, you’ll have heard, danced or more likely been obsessed with something or other he has touched.
His prolific output in the studio, be it as a solo artist or in conjunction with fellow Scots Craig Smith (as 6th Borough Project), or Ali Herron as the scintillating Ooft Music!, has seen some people suggest that Graeme Clark is the biggest thing to happen to house music in quite a long time.
Graeme began producing in his early teenage years, making a skewed blend of electronic music using a couple of his dad’s old drum machines and a sampler. Influenced by his parents’ collection of rock, soul and funk as well as eighties daytime radio and the burgeoning rave scene, he began the process of dissecting and re-imagining the music. As with many recent musical phenomena, the internets soon became his friend. Establishing a massively successful blog with Ooft partner Ali, their re-works and edits of classic soul and disco – tweaking them for the dancefloor and respectfully re-arranging them to across-the-board stellar acclaim – quickly became the stuff of legend. Look no further than The Revenge edit of Hot Chocolate’s Cadillac and you’ll see why. The frequency of their output was equally as stunning and it was clear for all to see that t his particular talent was something very special indeed.
Now keenly associated with the burgeoning pitched down, slow groove house and disco scene, Graeme’s DJ sets have become almost as revered as his productions. With a worldwide touring schedule that takes in every continent, The Revenge returns to Belfast on Friday October 29 for only his second gig in Belfast. This, folks, will be the hottest Halloween Friday night in the city and is utterly unmissable
