House icon and inspiration, New Jersey’s Kerri Chandler has become one of the foremost of house music’s originators. His DJ’ing appearances see him perform and remix live and he will be adding to his Albert Hall playing keyboards into the mix.
Meanwhile, born in the Chicago House scene, Derrick Carter was instrumental in creating that sound and has built himself a reputation as one of the true underground pioneers. Considered one of the DJs other DJs look up to, Derrick sets are legend for his range of records and innovative mixing.
One of Detroit’s early and original DJs, Delano Smith merged early electronica with the sounds of the city back then. Coming back to the decks around a decade ago, he has forged a great reputation, infusing that style with house and techno grooves whilst his production work as “Delano” has won admiration and acclaim world-wide.
Derrick, Kerri, and Delano are joined by The Hacienda’s Mike Pickering and Jon Dasilva rounding up a stellar line up for its first Manchester event of the year.
