We are pleased to welcome Acid House Pioneer TERRY FRANCIS and Techno Trio ANIMAL FARM to Rubbed at in August. A Line-up sure to heat up the underground hotspot!
Since winning Muzik magazines “Best New DJ” award in 1997, TERRY FRANCIS has had what can only be described as a meteoric rise to fame. To those previously unfamiliar with his flawless mixing skills and instinctive ability to work a crowd it probably seemed as if he’d arrived out of nowhere. Fact is though, he had been blazing a trail through the underground for no less than ten years before the world at large sat up and took notice. And perhaps more than anything else it was unanimously praised “Architecture” mix album that really put him on the map.
A seamless mix of deep duby house, celestial breaks and ethereal vocals – it wasshot through with the kind of shimmering techno sensibility that really marked it out as something special. Some called it “tech house”, whilst Terry himself jokingly described to it as “house no”.
In March 1994 Wiggle was born. A joint operation between Terry, Nathan Coles and their respective partners. Wiggle is a night like no other. Still, probably London’s best loved underground house event. Wiggle is one of the only nights in the country that has always remained true to the original spirit of acid house, and that fact that it has sold out every time since it started pretty much speaks for itself.
Aside from the continued success of Wiggle and the release of his “Architecture 2″ mix album on Pagan, the last few years have seen Terry’s career continue to bosom. He’s constantly toured all over America, Australia, New Zealand and the far East, made weekly trips to just about every country in Europe and still found the time to record for labels like Hooj Choons, Yoshitoshi, Alien and Primal US.
In October 1999 he started a residency at London’s Fabric, where he continues to this day to delight both old hands and new comers alike each and every Saturday night.
ANIMAL FARM have been running some epic House and Techno nights in and around Glasgow for the past 8 years, each one more unforgettable than the last! They have brought in and played alongside the likes of Ben Klock, Brendon Moeller, Kenny Larkin, Rolando, A Guy Called Gerald, Norman, Nodge, Marcel Fengler, Ryan Elliott, Marcel Dettmann, Regis & Function (Sandwell District), Luke Slater & Shifted.
