The Promised Land’s second from last Bank Holiday Day & Night party serves up another action packed line up guaranteed to get you singing and dancing till the sun comes up and kicking off at 4pm with a BBQ, ‘Acid House’ special with DJ Pierre and 808 State across 5 areas of music on Sunday 24th May at Egg Ldn.
Back in the day when acid was just a tab, DJ Pierre was holed up in his bedroom inventing a sound which would impact on the music scene forever. In 1986, ‘Acid House’ was in its pre-infancy when DJ Pierre picked up a 303 and the infamous “Acid Tracks” was born.
Pierre in one of the few artists in the history of dance music that can list Carl Cox, Diesel (X-Press 2), Junior Vasquez, Danny Tenaglia, Michael Mayer (Kompakt Records), and Tom Stephan as fans. His new single ‘The Underground’ with My Digital Enemy is rocking dancefloors alongside his cool new range of tee shirts at www.nowaybackstore.co.uk/collections/dj-pierre
Mancunian electronic pioneers 808 State take their name from the Roland TR-808 drum machine and a common state of mind . The band secured commercial success in 1989, when their song “Pacific State” and since then the boys have been ripping up festivals and events all over!
On The Terrace the PL invite Producers, DJs, long-term music fanatics and now – perhaps most life-changing of all – fathers!
