Preview: Joey Negro at Canvas
This month’s payday party at Canvas sounds like a corker! Be prepared for a masterclass in remixing as Ibiza/London legend Joey Negro (real name Dave Lee) takes over the decks. Expect contemporary dance/disco that utilises the best samples from 50+ years of clubbing.
He’s a producer first and foremost but three decades of DJing have also made him an expert in filling dancefloors. And we know the last Friday of every month is payday for more than most, so we are sure he will have an enthusiastic audience.
Lee’s produced under a number of guises – Jakatta, Akabu, Doug Willis, Raven Maize, The Sunburst Band, Sessomatto, and Z Factor, to name but a few. According to his Soundcloud profile, he was one of the first artists to incorporate disco samples in house music when he began his production career in 1988.
One of British house music’s brightest stars from the start, he has held a residency at Defected’s ‘Glitterbox’ night in Ibiza for the past three summers. Remixed With Love was released in earlier this year with fresh new mixes of Grace Jones, Robert Palmer, The O’Jays, Gwen McCrae and Gladys Knight classics. He also mixed the theme tune for the notorious Ibiza Uncovered TV series.
So elbows at the ready, ladies, it’s bound to be another crowded night at Canvas!
