This month we have a very special treat for you…the amazing Dan Cat (Catz Muzik) will be joining us for what is set to be the best event to date. Described as “Weird, warm and wonderful” by DJ Mag, Dan is certainly going to make sure you get your ‘freak on’ when he takes to the decks.
It all started with a DJ duo, the Cheshire Catz, and a set of legendary house parties in Cheshire St, London - hence the "Catz" name. Two friends, Dan and Jon Blond, DJing to twenty friends in a flat on a rooftop apartment. Within 18 months the Cheshire St parties had exploded to 1500 people trying to cram into four adjacent flats, with such a crowd coming and going that a taxi rank spontaneously formed outside the building.
It was time to move to a bigger venue, so the Catz did six "At Night" parties, taking the house-party vibe into London warehouses - and scoring the Catz gigs at nearly every major London club off the back of their rapt local following and blistering sets. At the same time, Dan and Jon moved into production, with their first tracks earning raves from Claude von Stroke to Sasha, Radio Slave to Audiofly. The music even earned them a remix of the legendary Coldcut on Ninja Tunes - Dan's first steps into working with groups and personalities as well as writing for the dancefloor.
Today, with fans from Slam to Luke Solomon, Shir-Khan to Severino of Horse Meat Disco, Groove Armada to Style of Eye, Dan Cat is one of London's quirkiest additions to dance music. His Hackney studio takes in singers and songwriters as well as engineering projects with DJs like Fabric's Cormac, Zombie Soundsystem's Shane Watcha, and his father's experimental spirit and his eight years of obsessively honing his own production chops have got the press and DJs right behind the new dancefloor tunes...
So what are you waiting for? Put "11th June - FreshEra @ Public Life, London – 7:30pm till Late" in your diaries, gather your mates, dress as you please and join us to party the night away!
