Bank Holiday Sunday 26th - EDSC 10th Birthday with Metro Area @ 2022nq, Manchester
Principle resident at Manchester’s El Diablo’s Social Club since 2003, Neil has consistently spun an intoxicating cocktail of house and disco (in all its forms) and has built up a reputation as a DJ who can always get a crowd moving.
He has become an in demand DJ playing regularly around the UK and Europe and sometimes further a field. Neil is also a regular on the festival scene and plays regularly at Glastonbury, Big Chill, Glade, The Garden, Croatia.
Neil has played alongside some of the disco scenes finest guests which he and his EDSC have brought to the rainy city, including Greg Wilson, Todd Terje, Prins Thomas, Rub n Tug, Maurice Fulton, Daniel Wang, Hercules’s and Love Affair, Danny Krivit, Crazy P, Toby Tobias and Steve Kotey to name a few.
He is a also prominent staffer at Manchester’s world respected Piccadilly Records shop, and can be found behind the counter at weekends ‘pulling tunes’ for punters, or more likely, for himself. His DJ tastes also feed into what stock Piccadilly take, pointing buyers in the direction of new-to-vinyl hidden gems that he’s been spinning off promo for an eternity.
The natural progression has been for Neil to take his affinity for the dancefloor and ear for sounds and apply them to original productions, remixes and edits and also a series of edit labels; To Rack & Ruin and Midnight Chopper.
Recent remixes have included Badly Drawn Boy and Bionics on paper recordings and 2011 has brought his first solo outgoing ‘The Feeling’ which dropped on Cosmic Boogie’s ‘Boogie Originals’ imprint. Many more releases are set for 2011.
