For anyone unfamiliar with our guests, here is some info so you can get to know!!
Since winning Muzik magazines “Best New DJ” award in 1997, Terry Francis has had what can only be described as a meteoric rise to fame. To those previously unfamiliar with his flawless mixing skills and instinctive ability to work a crowd it probably seemed as if he’d arrived out of nowhere. Fact is though, he had been blazing a trail through the underground for no less than ten years before the world at large sat up and took notice and his unanimously praised “Architecture” mix album helped put him on the map.
Labelling Terry’s style is fairly pointless because what he does is what all the very best DJ’s do. He blurs the lines between the past and the present to create the future and always plays from the heart. Crucially though, he does it just that little bit better than almost anybody else.
By 1994 he felt the time was right to set up his own night and in March of that year Wiggle was born. Wiggle is a night like no other. Still, probably London's best loved underground house event. Wiggle is one of the only nights in the country that has always remained true to the original spirit of acid house, and that fact that it has sold out every time since it started pretty much speaks for itself.
Aside from the continued success of Wiggle and the release of his "Architecture 2" mix album on Pagan, the last few years have seen Terry's career continue to blossom. He's constantly toured all over America, Australia, New Zealand and the far East, made weekly trips to just about every country in Europe and still found the time to record for labels like Hooj Choons, Yoshitoshi, Alien and Primal US.
In October 1999 he started a residency at London's Fabric, where he continues to delight both old hands and new comers alike each and every Saturday night.
Eddie Richards is an integral part of the modern House scene, he has been around from the start and has played a pivotal part in the scenes movement. His achievements are numerous, establishing the first ever DJ agency, and his involvement in ‘Wiggle’ being only two. Eddie has been championed as a leader in the currently fabulous tech-house marketplace, but in reality, he is just playing the badass, tough music that has been moving dance floors for decades.Like it or not, the only path towards being a talented dj is having loads and loads of experience. The ability to gather a record bag together and please a random dance floor in a random city is an acquired skill that only grows with practice. Eddie Richards, dance music’s quintessential pioner and "Britain’s godfather of house and techno" (Mixmag) was one of the first DJs to champion house back in the mid 8O’s & one of the UK s original mix DJ's who became a key figure in a new music and cultural movement soon to explode worldwide. After playing at such influential and original underground clubs as Clink St. & Heaven in London and Manchester's Hacienda, he went one to headline the legendary UK pay parties Sunrise. Energy and Helter Skelter among countless others. Remix and production work led to the release of club classics; ’Acidman’ in ’88 which hit the UK Top 20, followed by other chart topping remixes of Ralphi Rosario, Orbital and The Shamen. Eddie has been included in virtually every book, documentary and film about dance culture and is sought after all over the world for his flawless mix of deep bass driven techno with soulful & tough house, a format he has always maintained, and has led him to be widely regarded as the pioneer of what is now known as ’tech-house’.
