About

I'm a collector of groove music since 1986, the sound heard on the hip radio stations, record shops and clubs of Manchester ( my birthplace ), a place I marketed simply as THE RAINY CITY since 1990 when I started deejaying on the club circuit in the city and more so with my label RAINY CITY MUSIC since 1996. I've spent the last twenty years having fun producing Roots House Music, Deep Tech/ Tech House, Detroit influenced Techno, Jazz, Latin, Brazilian music, Funk, Disco, Jazz Funk, African Music, Indian Music, film type soundtracks and Electronica etc etc. I've programmed hundreds of events and deejayed in many spots worldwide with so many of the greats in groove music, for example, with Questlove - The Roots, Tony Allen - the Afrobeat king, Norman Jay - Mr Rare Groove/Boogie, Roy Ayers, Orlando Voorn - Detroit Techno/ Hip Hop DJ, Seu Jorge - City Of God, electro-funk maestro Greg Wilson & recently NYC Club Shelter legend TIMMY REGISFORD amongst many many others of all styles to long to mention here. I try to live, breathe and create only the most artistic of vibrations of groove music in a world full of music for money only & mediocrity. Also My current ROOTS HOUSE MUSIC party COMMUNITY is there to show how dance music can and should be played with depth & variety without pandering to fads. The next COMMUNITY party is in Newcastle on Sat June 14th 2014 at Dry in Mcr with NYC's DJ SPINNA . Previous guest performers include BLACK COFFEE, JOAQUIN JOE CLAUSSELL, TIMMY REGISFORD, BODDHI STAVA, PHIL ASHER, OSUNLADE, KARIZMA, ATJAZZ, OPOLOPO, SIMBAD amongst many others. Lots of my mixes are archived on Mixcloud as IRFAN RAINY.
You are welcome to follow me and spread the vibe worldwide.
YOU CAN ALSO FOLLOW ME ON SOUNDCLOUD as RAINYCITYMUSIC/FREESOUND for all my own productions.

    on May 28, 2010 15:36

    Hmm Sygaire I beg to differ. If you listen to ' Cybotron - Alleys Of Your Mind ' you will see Juan & 3070 are coming from a different angle to Electro-Funk, they have a whole concept of TECHNO MUSIC within their music and yes it is related to New York's ELECTRO-FUNK but coming from a different angle, although the ELECTRO compilations put them in the same bracket. They recorded CYBOTRON - TECHNO CITY which translates this point exactly. Techno is not just about a 4/4 Disco/ House beat within the sound which it has become, it's way more conceptual. This live set is definitely TECHNO MUSIC in my humble opinion.
