BRENNAN GREEN (Chinatown, Balihu, DFA)
JOHNNY HILLER (Spacemachine Rec., Lasermagnetic)
Neil Thornton (Lasermagnetic)
Lasermagnetic continues their monthly residency with guests DJs from the global disco scene…and welcome back old pal Brennan Green from NYC, who has recoded for some of the best labels the scene has produced in the last decade: Daniel Wang’s Balihu, DFA, Wurst Records and his own Chinatown label.
Very much like his persona, his Brennan’s sets are colourful and take you from leftfield disco to post punk and dub to hypnotic house and techno music, which frequently result in the girls loosing their inhibitions and the boys go shummy.
Green's vinyl-only releases combine both acoustic and electronic instrumentation to unearth irresistible grooves, syncopated rhythms and hypnotic basslines. As a remixer Brennan has also found a voice all his own with popular remixes for Liquid Liquid, Lindstrom, Franz Ferdinand and DFA. His New York parties Pop Your Funk (APT, 01-04) and Junky Blues (Flamingo East, 99-01) were instrumental in pioneering the current underground disco invasion and since then he has toured extensively through Japan, Australia, Europe, North/South America and Russia playing at events as diverse as NewYork's P.S.1, London's Fabric with Lasermagnetic, Horse Meat Disco, Tokyo's Yellow, Sydney's Madracket and many of the world's best underground parties.
For the last year Brennan has been in the studio producing and mixing for the resurrected Arthur Russell/Loose Joints project, "Arthur's Landing" for Strut/K7 UK and will also be releasing 2 12" singles oh his own CHINATOWN imprint over the next 2 months consisting of the epitome of disco classics "Is It All Over My Face" feat. Nomi Ruiz from Hercules and Love Affair fame.
Currently Brennan is working again producing and mixing Grammy award winning artist August Darnell's Kid Creole and the Coconuts project for STRUT, UK.
