In the first part of a conversation between Trevor Jackson and Dan Beaumont, the pair discuss Trevor´s forthcoming 8 hour set at A Night With Trevor Jackson…on Saturday 26th January at Basing House. The second instalment coming soon will focus on Trevor´s production career, his Graphic Design background and what he´d be doing if money were no object…
In 2012 A Night With…has become a firm fixture in everyones calendar. With Sebo K, X-Press 2, M.A.N.D.Y, Soul Clap, Seth Troxler, the legendary Greg Wilson, world renowned Sasha and to close the year the UK’s leading #1 Jamie Jones will all have taken up the mantle of playing for a full 8 hours compleltey un-supported.
We now look forward to next year, where Trevor Jackson and A Guy Called Gerald start proceedings, taking us into the bright lights of 2013.
With a forward-thinking approach driven by an enduring commitment to promote innovation and new talent, as well as extensive knowledge and respect for music history and its cultural roots, Trevor Jackson´s ability to communicate with the dancefloor is a given gift. Whether it be in larger spaces like Fabric or smaller underground parties across the globe, he has remained one of London´s most notable and loved DJ’s. Having actively blurred the genre lines throughout his career and living by his own musical mantra, “I don’t play one type of music. I play everything” Trevor is set to go down in the A Night With… hall of fame. Expect a lesson in the history of dance music and it´s many off-shoots.
Taking the baton in February is A Guy Called Gerald. Something of a hidden gem, Gerald is considered the gateway between Chicago house / Detroit Techno and the UK dance music explosion in the late 80s. He formed 808 State with a drum machine, a 303, 2 Roland SH101s and 2 other humans. His collaborations stem from Frankie Knuckles, Goldie, Finley Quaye and Derrick May through to Herbie Hancock, has remixed for David Bowie, Lamb, Stone Roses, and The Orb. When the history of postmodern dance music is written he is ubiquitous: his visions, his stylistic versatility and open mindedness had a huge influence on the development of global dance culture. Very early on, he experimented with acid house and helped pioneer the style that was later called jungle and drum´n´bass. Fiercely independent we´re really looking forward to hearing what his 8 hour mandate has in store.
