Event description

Description

After touring the country alongside Fat Boy Slim, Dick Johnson is bringing his Magik Sessions back to the Bay with a performance at CBK on Red Square.

As a teenager Dick Johnson landed a residency at Manchester’s legendary Hacienda Club where he honed his house sound until it’s closure in 1997. Before long, he was producing tracks for Cream’s Olympic label, New Order’s Pleasure Recordings and Manchester’s Paper Recordings collective, and had set up his own record label Shaboom records which went on to do over 100 releases from the likes of Joeski, Fred Everything, Doc Martin and DJ Sneak.


Prolific in the studio, he went on to do albums for Darren Emerson’s Underwater Label and Bristol house imprint NRK, as well as releases for Jesse Rose’s Made To Play/Play It Down, Southern Fried, Nic Fanciulli’s Saved Records, Lazy Days, Soundway, MOS & Vicious.

As well as his own solo productions, Dick has remixed the likes of Crookers, Claude Von Stroke, DJ Sneak, Ian Pooley, Worthy, Crazy P, Bassnectar, Fred Everything and is part of a few live acts. The first is the eight-piece band Weird Together with its own twist on world music. They have released two EP’s so far, the first through UK label Soundway and the second on Jillionaire's (Major Lazer) Feel Up Records. The second project is MEDZ, a slower, more futuristic electronic project, and the third is Clicks.

Now based in Auckland, New Zealand and with a weekly show on local radio station George FM, Dick continues a busy DJ schedule and it’s a rare weekend indeed that he is not behind the decks electrifying a crowd of dedicated followers and testing his tunes on dance floors from Russia to Argentina and most points in between.
