Graeme Park and Greg Wilson coming to Dublin for epic ‘Long Live House’ night
Two of the biggest names in house music history – Graeme Park and Greg Wilson – are set for an epic Long Live House double-header at Dublin‘s Button Factory on 22 April, presented by Electric.Dublin. Tickets are available here.
Both DJs need little in the way of introduction – Park’s nine-year stint as resident of The Haçienda in Manchester helped kick start a career which has seen him grace clubs around the world and remix artists such as Inner City, Eric B & Rakim and New Order, while his Long Live House Radio Show is featured each week on 909originals.com.
Wilson, meanwhile, commenced his DJ career in 1975 and enjoyed hugely popular residencies in the early 1980s at Wigan Pier and Manchester’s Legend. He was a pioneer of mixing in the UK, and in 1983, he was hired as first ‘dance music’ specialist at The Haçienda – where he helped break the new electronic, post-disco records coming out of New York, a sound he dubbed ‘electro-funk’.
Having put his DJ career on ice in the early 80s, Wilson returned to spinning tunes two decades later, making regular appearances at clubs such as Fabric, Back To Basics and Ministry Of Sound – continuing to wow audiences with his musical knowledge and DJ dexterity.
Both are also no stranger to Irish shores, and indeed have a close relationship with the team here at 909originals – check out our past interviews with Graeme Park here, and with Greg Wilson here.
Both will feature in the main room of the Button Factory for the Long Live House event, with support from DJ Solo and Speedi-D, while Room 2 will feature the PHEVER all-stars and guests to be announced.
Listen to phever.ie or check out the PHEVER socials for more details. Doors open at 11pm, and the event is strictly over 18s. Tickets can be purchased only via Eventbrite.ie, click here for more information.
