It’s Saints Don’t Sleep’s second birthday tonight, which means it’s time to celebrate. Baltimore house king Karizma leads the fun with deep, driving and funky cuts, plus there’s support from disco don Daniel Wang, techy, funky duo The Menendez Brothers, Arnaldo, Park Ranger and many more.
Here’s an undisputed truth for you: Terry Farley is a masterful DJ when it comes to all things house. In particular, his knowledge of acid house is immense, proven by his run of excellent acid house comps in recent years. He’s now launching another one, ‘Acid Thunder’, and it’s another blinder. All of which means that you really should get down to the record’s official launch party, where Farley will be spinning acid and deep house alongside US house heavyweight Marshall Jefferson. Essential stuff.
