FRESH. is an innovative electronic dance party, every first Friday. This month, please welcome the staunchly genreless, ultra visionary UK producer Doorly.
9pm | $8.00 advance
Having emerged from a small and local Yorkshire scene a few years ago, DJ, producer, promoter, presenter and label boss Doorly is on the rise. In 2011, not only did he undertake a nine-month tour of the planet, but so too did he play almost every club on the island of Ibiza (his summer home for the last 5 years), act as tour DJ for r&b megastar Usher and continue his close relationship as resident, host and frontman with the illustrious Ibiza Rocks. It's clear to see, then, that what separates this man from the crowd is his ability to play -- and fit in with -- any line-up of talent no matter the style of music.
As well as DJing, the staunchly genreless artist also collaborated with stars as diverse as Grandmaster Flash, Scissor Sisters' Jake Shears and vocal manipulator Beardyman. At the same time, Doorly has thrown huge parties in abandoned warehouses in downtown LA alongside barmy bass hound Toddla T and, since first emerging, has been asked to do not one but two Essential Mixes for Radio 1, has remixed Prodigy, Dizzee Rascal and Basement Jaxx and has played on the same bills with acts as diverse as Prodigy (at their 65, 000 strong Milton Keynes Bowls gig), Azari & III, Skrillex, Tiga, Friendly Fires and even The Specials.
A keen proponent of all and any genres from house to bassier dubstep and jungle sounds to hip hop, techno, funky and more, Doorly champions such sounds on his own Pigeonhole This label.
