The Berlin based dj and producer will appear alongside Danny Howells on Saturday 27th November at Shindig; the Newcastle based clubbing institute known for bringing the best in House, Techno and Electronic music to the North East for almost two decades.

Danny Howells has acquired a hard-earned reputation as not only one of dance music’s most reliable DJs and producers but as one of Shindig’s most respected and undoubtedly favorite guests. Whereas for many the word ‘reliable’ often signifies a tendency to stick to one style and offer few surprises, Danny is different: he’s maintained a impressive worldwide fan base through his consistent willingness to experiment and a taste for musical genres far beyond house & techno..

Since 1992, Shindig has become one of the North East’s most notorious house and techno parties and November sees much loved Danny return to Shindig at World Headquarters for a unique chance to witness one of dance music’s pace setters in such a small venue.

His solid reputation has opened the door to some of the world’s leading, most influential clubs, including Ibiza’s Privilege, Watergate in Berlin and now Shindig. Christmas has definitely come early…

BT is a legend of Trance production, Nadia Ali is a legend of Trance vocals.

Kirsty – Hands High (Afrojack Radio Edit)

February 23, 2013

Who is Kirsty? We don’t know either, but this looks like her attempt to crack the commercial dance scene and she’s enlisted the help of Afrojack who provides remix duties. Apparently Sander Van Doorn said “supporting!” and David Guetta said “huge!” Although we’d question how much thought they gave to their answers when questioned. The… View Article
