20th September sees Egg Presents… Dimitri From Paris, the house legend that has help to define the genre over the last decades.

As the French Ambassador of stylish club sounds, Dimitri from Paris is everything his nation could be proud of: a DJ, producer, & remixer of the highest standard, and a stylish snake-hipped pin-up with French reserve. In a nutshell, there are two distinct sides to Dimitri: a undeniable elegant and, a devoted dance music fanatic. In 2005 the French government awarded him the very official rank of Knight of the Arts and Letters. Along with Air and Cassius he was the first artist from the Electronica field to be given such a distinction. Dimitri has had several compilations including the cult “Deluxe House of Funk” and the infamous “A Night At The Playboy Mansion” charted in Mixmag’s Top 100 Best Compilations Ever, and is just as skilled a remixer. He has turned his hand to the likes of The Rapture, Holy Ghost and Storm Queen, which have all been well received, as have his own productions over the years.

As for Chicago native DJ Pierre, little needs to be said of the man who invented acid singled handedly back in the 80s with his cohort in Phuture. Their Acid Tracks record is still as good now as it ever was an since then Pierre has continued to DJ around the world, appearing at ADE, numerous festivals and leading clubs, as well as releasing originals and remixes that continue in his raw style on labels like Strictly Rhythm, King Street Sounds and his own Afro Acid label.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
