UK DJ/producer Neil Quigley speaks to DJsounds from a Shindig meets Renaissance party, held at Digital nightclub, in Newcastle, UK.
Here he waxes lyrical about playing a peak time set, his official Pacemaker deep house CD, tips and tricks for pre-play, how he organises his music collection, what he learnt from mentor John Digweed, and the usual components of his DJ set up.
As a DJ, Neil has played everywhere from heating up Digweed’s Bedrock parties and Fabric and Ministry of Sound in London, to the far-flung Warung Beach Club, in Brazil. Meanwhile, his self-defined ‘electronic house with soul’ productions have appeared on the likes of Audio Therapy, Urbantorque and Renaissance labels.
This year the Renaissance man’s even mixed up Renaissance’s back catalogue (check out the Focus On release), among many other projects. Words: LRC
