How’s this for an amazing bit of news for our house music community… Three of the UK’s most prominent young artists have been selected to join Nile Rodgers and his band Chic on their tour of the British Isles! What a fantastic result for the guys, all of whom have been smashing it lately with their music and all of whom have been featured right here on Deep House London, too.
A little while back we interviewed Josh Butler, who told us all about his ambitions and his history. We bet he never imagined he’d end up supporting one of the greatest disco bands in history. His good pal Bontan dropped us a mix and a mini interview too, the mix itself has picked up a staggering 90,000 plays since we published it on our Soundcloud page. Finally, Krystal Klear spoke to us about his new single with Yasmin earlier this week. So it’s really great to see that the guys are now hitting the road with Nile and his band.
The man himself, who was an important figure in the making of Daft Punk’s most recent album, said, ‘If it wasn’t for a DJ there might not be any CHIC records. We were discovered not on the internet but in a nightclub, which is why I chose to invite some of the best DJs out there right now along on my UK tour. Our disco music is made for having ‘Good Times’ on the dancefloor. I am thrilled to have the support of young house talents Butler & Bontan and Krystal Klear; they feel like the next chapter, representing the future breed of expert DJs, who’ll continue to spin records that make ‘Everybody Dance’..
While Josh and Bontan said, “Chic have written some of the most memorable songs in history. For us to be joining them on their UK tour is a true blessing and an absolute honour.”
The London date is already sold out, however the rest of their dates are as follows…
March 22nd – Leeds – O2 Academy
March 23rd – Glasgow – O2 Academy
March 24th – Manchester – O2 Apollo
March 25th – Birmingham – O2 Academy
Make sure you catch them in action, suffice to say it’ll be history in the making.
Well done guys!
