The launch party of Pier Jam 2016 on Saturday 23rd July, features non other than Pier Jam firm favourite, MK; the DJ / Producer responsible for creating some of the defining sounds and biggest tracks of early house, smashing the UK charts with his remixes of Storm Queen’s ‘Look Right Through’ & & Wankelmut’s ‘My Head Is A Jungle’ and is now influencing a new generation with his unique, stripped back style. Joining MK we welcome Super-stars Basement Jaxx for an exclusive DJ set. Best known for their vibrant live shows, carnival vibes, and string of chart-topping singles, such as Romeo and Good Luck, as a DJ duo, Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe are a force to be reckoned with. Their DJ sets expertly weave together a tougher sounding vibe to Basement Jaxx’s live persona, with edgy dance music productions.
Next up we welcome Claptone to the bill. Even though many have heard of him, following his highly regarded remix of Gregory Porter’s Liquid Spirit, no-one truly knows who or what he is. The only certainty however, is the captivating music he makes. It never fails to bind those who hear it under his spell. Continuing to intrigue fans, mysterious DJ duo Camelphat are also set to play the launch party, as well as Defected’s man of the moment Sonny Fodera.
