Very special guest Todd Terje jets in from Norway with support from Neil Thornton & Johnny Hiller (Lasermagnetic, The Boogie Cartel, Ears Have Eyes & friends

Saturday 24th September sees London’s finest disco venue hosting an all night two-floor party until 6am welcoming a guest who is becoming nothing short of a modern legend: Norwegian disco king, Todd Terje. We’re absolutely over the moon to be hosting a rare UK date from the man behind the current dancefloor bomb ‘Ragysh’, who will be supported downstairs by Horse & Groom stalwarts and pioneers of London’s own disco scene, Lasermagnetic. On top of that, upstairs the brilliant Boogie Cartel return to the scene of their very first electrifying parties, with residents playing all night long - this cannot be missed. We’re even opening up the intimate boudoir where party crew Ears Have Eyes will spin tunes under the notorious red light. This looks to go down as yet another legendary night at the Shoreditch disco pub.

Following a string of celebrated releases leaning on everything from kitschy Euro sounds to dub disco and psychedelic house, Todd Terje made his mark within dance music circuits. Gems such as the cheese anthem “Eurodans” and the Latin disco fuelled edit of Jacko’s “Can’t Help it” under his Tangoterje edit-moniker instantly made industry types and clubbers alike go bananas, and made him to everybody's darling from Gilles Peterson to Pete Tong. Inspired by the former UK generation of disco heads such as Idjut Boys, Black Cock etc, Terje soon began to make his own re-edits of old disco records to make them more suitable for his dancers. But instead of just adding a bass drum and remove some vocals, he injected musicality and playfulness for a more personal twist. Cheesy pop artists such as The Bee Gee’s, Michael Jackson, Chris Rea, Wham, Paul Simon, America or Chic didn't turn him off, as “there´s nothing wrong with grandiose pop if there´s an equal amount of dub to it”, edit rule number one. This untraditional approach made him the King Midas of edits and he reinvented the whole edit genre almost all by himself.

The venue is primed and ready for an all night disco extravaganza. The soundsystem has been tweaked to perfection, we’ve ensured a 6am license and we’ve got some of the finest party crews around keeping the two floors heaving until sunrise. The Horse and Groom’s ethos of putting on the biggest and best names in the intimate confines of the traditional East End pub has earned the venue legendary status. Just ask Mr C, Jamie Jones or Eric Duncan , who have all had the place heaving over the last year. Now it’s time for the man behind some of the finest tunes and edits of our time to take the stage and make sure our reputation as the finest place for disco in London is preserved.

Interview wth Lasermagneitc

Hello Todd, how would you describe Todd Terje to a deaf?
It´s music, you can sometimes dance to it, sometimes not. It doesn´t always go boom-boom, sometimes it also goes chika-chikaaaaahhhh.
How did you get to a sound so typically hot even if you come from a cold city like Oslo, what were your influences?
Oslo is actually super hot, the most balearic place to be right now! Ok, no palm trees and coconuts, but we have lovely islands you can get to by ferry.
Almost a year ago there were rumors of your desire to create a concept album. Are you still thinking of doing it, or you have not yet managed to find time to do it?
I´d love to do it one day, but it requires you to work fast enough to get it done before your idea wears out. I usually like to get into detail right away, so it can take time to do big projects. I´m working on an album now and then, but it probably won´t sound like it was done in a year.
A concept album is just the opposite of what we usually get from you, why the choice of style to create almost always some edit of other songs?
Edits is not all I do.
Is there any artist that you feel to share the same vision of music right now?
I do have a vision, but I can´t think of anyone who´s on my exact bag of music right now.
If there wasn’t Todd Terje what would you fans have to listen? Can you advice some music to us?
Wally Badarou´s “Echoes” album. I´m not saying I sound like this, but very often it´s how I would like my music to sound.
