One time proprietor of the infamous Atlas Records shop in Soho, London over a decade ago, Pete divides his time these days either behind the wheels of steel or in the studio working solo on various musical projects and this month alongside Adrian Giordano he is kicking off the White Magic Sunsets series for 2015…
These last few years Pete has also teamed up with Tim Paris of Its A Fine Line to record as CHALLENGE, as well as with Dicky Trisco, releasing for his DISCO DEVIANCE label and for their co-run label MAXI DISCS, specifically focusing on their take of Tropical House with releases by Marius Vaareid, Ray Mang, Ajello and Pete and Dicky Trisco themselves..
The second in the series of White Magic Sunsets’ events at the Sheraton Hotel is graced with the UK based disco don Ray Mang alongside resident DJ Adrian Giordano.
Ray set up his own record label Mangled in ’98 unleashing a slew of well-received and highly collectable 12” releases. Two albums followed ‘Mangled’ on Eskimo Recordings and later ‘Mangled Again’ on his own imprint along with singles on R & S, Bear Funk & Smash Hit. Recently his release on DFA saw him offer P-Funk with a Disco House twist made for the dance floor (Bullet Proof feat the brilliant Lady Miss Kier) and a blissed out Balearic gem Look Into My Eyes.
A special Family Jam Edition where we have lined up a group Island friends that will create som Disco chaos with their DJ sets and live performances.
Sunday August 9th, White Magic Sunsets rolls on with UK/Japan based Max Essa in what is another solid booking for this well established high season highlight…
Originally from the U.K Max currently lives and works in Japan as a DJ and producer for labels such as Is It Balearic?, Aficionado, File Under Disco and Jansen Jardin.
Max Essa made his debut as a producer on the legendary Warp Records label in 1993, going on to record for some of the seminal house music labels of the era including Paperecordings, D.i.Y Discs/Strictly 4 Groovers and D-Vision in Italy.
DJ, producer, remixer, record label head honcho and 3 times Olympic Gin & Tonic champion, Dicky Trisco is addicted to the way music connects people and makes for better days. A night owl since he was born (or so his mother says), he has devoted his life to mastering the ways of the night and the art of the discotheque.
As a disc jockey, DT packs a little bit of everything into his sets and is committed to the idea that music and club nights should be all about collective joy and ecstasy. Some call it having a good time. Disco music has always been at the forefront of his musical passions, although he is a lover of all sorts.
Spanish producer extraordinaire Rayko has been a leading light in the disco scene since 2008, the year he launched his magnificent Rare Wiri imprint.
Since then his name has appeared on literally dozens of great records scattered across labels like Eskimo, Is It Balearic? and Nang.
Deeply rooted in ’70s and ’80s disco, funk, boogie and rock, Rayko’s influences are masterfully interpreted and transformed into modern day dancefloor bombs.
His mind-blowing edit of Candi Staton’s ‘Broadway’ came in at number 1 in Juno’s best of 2011 disco chart, proving he’s right at the crest of the disco edit wave.
Silver City is the main act for White Magic Sunsets closing party for the 2015 series. From the same homeland as resident and the man behind White Magic Sunsets Adrian Giordano, the Argentinian duo are will ensure the last episode for this seasons series is going to be one to remember.
Silver City are a Live Act and DJ Duo composed by Fernando Pulichino and Julian Sanza. Affiliated mainly to UK label 2020 Vision, they have also released singles and been featured in compilations on influential imprints like DFA, Get Physical, Under the Shade, K7, Deep Freeze, Silver Network, just to name a few. As members of 2020 Soundsystem (2003-2012) or as Silver City, they have produced 3 albums and subsequent singles including remixes by Lindstrom & Prins Thomas, Ewan Pearson, Ray Manga and Spirit Catcher.
