Joining the mix of cutting-edge and legendary talent on the bill on Sunday is Francois K; widely considered as one of the forefathers of house music, the DJ and highly respected producer has worked with Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder and Daft Punk throughout his career. With famous DJ collaborations involving Dimitri and Derrick May, his DJ career of 30 years and counting includes David Mancuso’s seminal The Loft party and a residence at Studio 54 and Paradise Garage. With his Body and Soul and Deep Space events being the most revered parties in NYC, Francois K was inducted into the Dance Music Hall of Fame in 2005, showing he is a genuine pioneer and exceptional DJ and an exciting addition to the growing line-up.
Joining the Sunday line-up is Melting Pot – the club night that brought disco to the attention of Glasgow clubbers and who continue to bring some of the biggest names in house, disco and all the electronic music points in-between to the city. Melting Pot will also host Sunday’s after party at The Admiral.
Party purveyors notsosilent will also take their three-man crew to the decks this May. Their flare for throwing memorable parties in Edinburgh and Glasgow is sure to go down well with the home crowd.
Finally, House Editor at Mixmag, owner of compact records, one half of the notorious party organisers Jengaheads and one of the very few radio DJ’s championing the sound of global electronic music in Scotland Mash, will bring all his favourite cuts from the last twenty years to the Electric Frog & Pressure Riverside Festival this May Bank Holiday weekend.
