KIM ANN FOXMAN
Kim Ann Foxman is a rare visionary who yearns to celebrate the golden era of authentic dance music whilst feeding from her fluid understanding of its imminent and intriguing future. After stepping away from singing with New York’s neo-disco collective Hercules and Love Affair she returned to her fundamental passions: rocking clubs as a DJ and producing raw electronic music. She started Firehouse recordings to represent New York, represent its flavour and be a part of the music history, putting out tracks that are super-dynamic, gorgeous and weird.
Greg began DJing in 1975 and is regarded as one of the most important figures on the UK dance scene. He was a pioneer of mixing in the UK and in 1983 he became the first ‘dance music’ specialist hired for a regular weekly session at Manchester’s now legendary Haçienda club. Greg was instrumental in breaking the new electronic, post-disco records coming out of New York, a sound he has dubbed ‘Electro-Funk’. Nominated by DJ magazine for outstanding contribution, and also named amongst their top twenty remixers of all-time, Greg’s edits and mixes continue to feature on the playlists of DJ’s in every continent.
SHAUN J WRIGHT
Born and raised in West suburban Chicagoland, Shaun J. Wright spent most of his teen years immersed in the sounds of house music. His love for dance music expanded throughout his high school years as he partook in the underground dance scene now globally known as Juke. After starting an active career in fashion in New York City he met Andrew Butler, founder of Hercules and Love Affair, and began a whirlwind collaboration with the ensemble as a vocalist. Currently, Wright is exhilarating dance floors worldwide as a DJ and is featured on several acclaimed releases with Stereogamous, Bell Boys, Bobmo, Kiki, Alinka, and System of Survival with more stellar collaborations on the horizon for 2016. He is also finishing his long-awaited solo EP.
