Daft Punk collaborator Todd Edwards to headline new house night at Camp and Furnace

House music icon and Daft Punk collaborator Todd Edwards will headline a spectacular club night at Camp and Furnace.

My House In Paris will bring Grammy-winner Edwards together with DJs and producers on the cutting edge of electronic music from France.

The venue, which celebrates its 10th year in the Baltic Triangle this year, has formed the huge party with Liverpool’s Surge Recordings.

The label has released music by El Row label boss De La Swing, Jesse Maas and Oden & Fatzo and is known for its bold characters, cultural reverence and pioneering electronic producers.

The parties have been one of the most sought-after tickets in Liverpool featuring Oden & Fatzo, DJOKO, Dimmish and Prunk.

LA-based Edwards is globally known as an electronic music pioneer credited with being a major influence on the UK garage and house scenes in the early 90s.

His hypnotic collage of cut-up samples over swing beats and disco-flavoured bass-lines helped set Edwards apart from many of his peers.

His innovative style propelled him to stardom among Britain’s Sunday club scene resulting in him being credited as one of the godfathers of garage.

Edwards’ tracks caught the attention of two Parisian producers, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, and his creative partnership with Daft Punk began.

The house legend collaborated with the French superstars on their second studio album Discovery and the track ‘Face To Face’ reached No.1 on the Billboard Club chart in 2004.

In 2014, what would be the enigmatic robots’ final album, Random Access Memories, won Best Dance/Electronica Album and Album of the Year.

Edwards’ production and composition for the album track ‘Fragments of Time’ earned him his first Grammy Award.

He is also a prolific remixer and stars like Beyonce, Rudimental, Fatboy Slim and Hot Chip have called on the producer to remix some of their biggest hits.

Todd Edwards will be joined by Deborah Aime La Bagarre, Thurman, Wlad, AMS, Basile de Suresnes, Ten Fingerz, Surge Recordings DJs J-Evans & Canty and Liverpool DJs Jimmy Allen and Reverend Fresh.

My House In Paris will be the first in a series of parties focussing on new electronic music DJs and bringing house music pioneers from cities or countries around the world.

Founder Reverend Fresh said: “The impact of the French House sound cannot be understated.

“There is an exciting scene emerging in the UK born from the music of the new wave of French House producers and this will be the first time most of the DJs on the line-up have played in Liverpool.

“Todd Edwards, who’s contribution alone to house music has been immeasurable, was a major influence for Daft Punk and the DJs and producers in France in the nineties. He is still DJing at some of the biggest parties around the world today.

“His set will be incredible.

“This will be one of the best nights of electronic music at the Camp and Furnace in the 10 years the venue has been in the Baltic Triangle.”
