This is your chance to be in at the start of something pretty cool! DownTownSounds celebrate the release of their ‘Downtownsounds Classics’ series with a launch night at the Grand Social on Friday! (20-04-13). Their series will catalogue the big tunes from the long running Dublin club night and will be released on Dublin label, Fatty Fatty Phongraphics.
Here’s what they have to say about the acts performing on Friday night:
“Virgo Four’s deep, emotional and melodic take on Chicago house has once again risen to prominence since their self titled debut album for Trax Records was reissued by Dutch label Rush Hour in 2010. It has been hailed in many quarters as ‘The Greatest House LP Ever Made’. The duo followed that up with ‘Resurrection’ in 2011, a collection of 30 unreleased tracks they recorded after they slipped into obscurity in the early 90’s. Dancefloor bomb of 2011, ‘It’s a Crime’ features on this collection and following a remix from modern hero Caribou, Virgo Four have been put firmly on the radar of a new audience, many of whom were not even born when the track was first written. “
