On September 17th we start a new season of OUR PARTY. With as special guest Maurice Fulton, someone we are sure is going to redefine the word ‘special’ . Next to that expect the same quality as usual. Fine-tuned Funktion One sound system, fine drinks at fair prices and an overall welcoming atmosphere. We keep the entrance fee at 5€. Venue is still Belle-Vue.
Feel free to invite the Facebook friends you want to party with. The really nice ones. With dancing feet. And their beautiful single sisters maybe.
Some info about our guest:
17/09/2011 – Maurice Fulton
One of our absolute musical heroes. A phrase you’ve probably heard before from us but that’s one of our main motivations to book DJs. And it’s absolutely true. We’ve been big fans ever since we heard those odd but very interesting sounds on records by Ladyvipb or Eddie and The Eggs and discovered it was all Maurice Fulton’s work. While diving deeper into the man’s oeuvre we discovered he did production work on Basement Boys produced records we adore, got regularly amazed by his new work like his production work for Kathy Diamond, Nicole Willis, Mim Suleiman or got blown away by stellar remixes for Chateau Flight or Alice Smith.
But that doesn’t make him a good DJ. True but the many podcasts, live mixes and alike we’ve checked only made us like him more. Sets with big chunks of great disco in them that make you dance behind your desk. So we’re more than a little proud we have him as a guest at our party.
Little bio we found on his Myspace:
Maurice Fulton was born under a crossfire hurricane. (Oh,no he wasn’t.) That was Mick Jagger wasn’t it?) Whatever. Anyway, Maurice Fulton was born somewhere, probably Baltimore, but we’d need to carbon-date him to be sure. Early in his life, Maurice realised he wanted to be a marine biologist. He had the snorkel. He had the flippers. He had some pictures of cute dolphins. (Aww, bless.) Then it all went wrong. He started buying records, thinking they were sub-aquatic aids and before he realised, he was DJing in nightclubs (he was looking for porpoises and took the wrong turning at the bathroom). Since becoming an internationally renowned DJ he has lived everywhere from New York to Australia, London to Sheffield. He presently lives in a croft on the Shetland Isles, where he weaves wool and communes with nature. We like his wool. But not as much as his disco.
