Daniel Wang & John Talabot at The Twisted Pepper
Venue: The Twisted Pepper, 54 Middle Abbey Street, Dublin 1 Website: www.bodytonicmusic.com/thetwistedpepper Price: €12 Date: Saturday October 22nd Time: 10:30pm
This Saturday, Nightflight will take over the two floors of the Twisted Pepper to bring you a double bill in the shape of modern disco hero Daniel Wang and Barcelona’s house music prodigy, John Talabot.
This will be Wang’s eighth time playing for the Nightflight collective in Dublin. Many around Dublin know him as a great disco DJ, but he started out as a budding producer and record label owner in New York in the early 90s. Daniel Wang’s productions have been included on compilations by the likes of Bob Sinclair, Dimitri from Paris, Rub’n’Tug and James Murphy and Tim Goldsworthy of LCD Soundsystem. His antics behind the turntables are as much a part of his charm as the blinding music he plays. Catch him as he blasts through his collection of euro-disco, cosmic boogie, Garage and Loft classics, and vintage house and electro — smiling, clapping and singing along as he goes.
John Talabot is a relatively new name on the house music circuit, first conceived by Barcelona born Oriol Riverola Soto back in 2008. However, a couple of stand out productions and remixes over the last two years have made people sit up and take notice of this Catalan native. Talabot’s music is hard to pigeonhole. Part of the new sound emerging in house music, his productions definitely have their own unique identity whilst all the time showing their origins in classic house music.
