Larry Heard playing the UK @ Scuba
12 Nov 2002
SCUBA @ THE FEZ CLUB
SAT 30TH NOV
LARRY HEARD (AKA MR FINGERS)
It is a rare occasion when we are blessed with the opportunity to host a true house music pioneer. Instrumental in bringing the underground house sound to a wider audience with his timeless classic 'Can you feel it?' released in 1986 on Chicago's legendary Trax Records, he has become a cult figure the world over. Since that fateful moment 16 years ago he has gone on to work for labels such as Capitol, MCA, Mercury, Warner Brothers, EMI Columbia and FFRR and now we can hear his new works on Brett Dancer's Trackmode label with whom he is making this rare appearance; these new tracks demonstrate in no uncertain terms the modern relevance of this Chicago veteran. The Trackmode stable is a blinding testament to the black origins of house music, with true Chicago and Detroit producers such as Theo Parrish, Glenn Underground and Alton Miller all releasing inspired works with the common link of the typically deep sound that this label has set out to achieve.
The last time Larry played in the UK was over 3 years ago, so be sure not to miss this opportunity, a night for those with a die hard passion for real house music. This is the music that has inspired generations of house producers and will for years to come, Larry is truly a living legend!
