Oct 20, 2016 @ 10:00 pm - Oct 21, 2016 @ 4:00 am| $15
Surfing on Saint-Germain-des-Prés? Hippy Existentialism? It seems Zimmer can do the tricks and make the Eiffel Tower face the Pacific Ocean. Raised between France and California, Zimmer combines the west coast carefree attitude with a twist of Parisian chic.
The young DJ and producer has been part of the New Disco European scene since his 2011 first release ‘Cruisin’ on Portuguese hot label DiscoTexas. Call it ‘feel good’, ‘horizontal disco’, ‘slow house’ and you just named it: Zimmer’s music combines Tropical elements, groovy basslines and catchy melodies to make the girls and boys dance until the sun rises. A king of the edits (Rod Stewart or Tina Turner) and remixes (Moon Boots, Jupiter, Black Yaya, Kamp!, Pompeya), his work has been supported by Dimitri From Paris, Yuksek, RAC Miami Horror and more… and ten of thousands followers who never miss his latest monthly mixtape.
His art of DJing might be the best way to experience the magic power of Zimmer: he moves the crowd on a journey and build it up like a Nouvelle Vague movie crafted in Hollywood. Zimmer is blockbuster DJ with a brain – anda soul.
Making headlines and chart topping hits since she first emerged in 2008, and winning the respected BBC Sound Of poll just a year later, Little Boots’ ties with DJ culture are deep and long-running. From her first legendary white label release ‘Stuck On Repeat’, produced by Joe Goddard, to gracing Mixmag’s cover, it’s hard to think of another popstar to have garnered anywhere near as much credibility from the dance world’s inner-circle.
From collaborating with dance royalty Maya Jane Coles, Hercules and Love Affair, Simian Mobile Disco and Com Truise, to her own decorated DJ career, highlights including curating one of Space’s closing We Love party in Ibiza, hosting her own Bugged Out night, and spinning everywhere from Glastonbury to Mixmag’s Lab.
Her mixes for the likes of Thump and Hunger are known to swing from classic disco to the latest house beats, always keeping a sense of party fun and featuring ultra rare edits and bootlegs.
