Preview: Gloria’s with Dimitri From Paris + Adesse Versions + Joshua James
This Friday (8th Jan) sees Gloria’s first party of 2016 at XOYO in East London. If you haven’t heard of Gloria, she’s the love child of dance party Sink The Pink and XOYO itself, encouraging absolutely anybody to come, just so long as you leave your labels at the gate.
So, what better way to start the year, than with a 4 hour set from disco wizard Dimitri From Paris? Often referred to as ‘the king of Disco’, he’s been turning heads since the age of 17, and got his first break DJ-ing for French radio station, Radio 7. Since then, he’s introduced the first ever house music radio show to be broadcast in France, released two studio albums and recorded soundtracks and advertising campaigns for fashion giants such as Chanel, Jean-Paul Gautier and Yves Saint Laurent. Now back to his original disco roots, Friday night promises to be a night of perfectly blended disco, funk, soul and jazz that will pack the dance-floor in seconds. With support from Numbers’ (home to the likes of SOPHIE and Jamie xx) Adesse Versions and Gloria’s resident selector Joshua James, it’s a night you’d be foolish to miss.
