Manchester’s La Discothéque will return to Albert Hall this winter with quite the disco feast in store, with Todd Terje and Dimitri From Paris whipping up the party frenzy on Saturday 11th February. Both holding a penchant for bubbly feel-good tracks, the pairing will surely elicit a cloud nine atmosphere in the magnificent concert hall.
In the last few years Nordic nu-disco has been warming spirits like a shot of vodka on a snowy night, and few from Norway’s thriving dance music scene can match Todd Terje when it comes to making a synthpop anthem. Working from a studio with no sharp edges, Terje makes disco belters that sound like cartoon characters hopping through terrains made of bedding, with fuzzy synthesisers and punchy drums adding plenty of log-fire warmth. Turning his hand to mixing rather than creating, the same principles are applied, making his sets both homely and spectacularly fun.
Another man who knows a thing or two about adding some euphoria to a dancefloor, Dimitri From Paris has been collecting tunes since you were just a wee babby, and having managed to keep up his edge for all that time he’s still respected as one of the best disco connoisseurs out there. A devotee to dance music of the most bombastic character, Dimitri will get the floor jumping and jiving with his own cuts of pop classics as well as the juiciest fruits of his digging career, making him an excellent addition to a fun-packed lineup. Luv Dancin DJs, Odyssey (live) and a few more very special guests will also appear.
