Slide & Get Diverted On The Terrace with Todd Terje
We’ve tried a number of times over the last couple of summers to book Todd Terje, us being huge fans of his DJing, productions and cheeky edits – many of which have received plenty of airtime at both Slide and Get Diverted parties. In many ways we think we have our man at the perfect time in 2012, what with the 2 huge EPs he has released over the past 12 months – ‘Ragysh’, which became a monstrous anthem across a wide variety of dancefloors last year – and the superb ‘It’s The Arps’ from January this year, which included the futuristic disco stomper, ‘Inspector Norse’.
Terje has also re-hashed, re-edited and remixed an incredible spectrum of artists, everyone from Chic, Paul Simon, Wham!, Roxy Music, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, and even Guns ‘N’ Roses!
Todd sums up his DJing style better than we can … “I both like playing big room/macho style, but at the same time it’s the girls I play for really. So I guess it’s a mixture of high octane, leather homo-disco done up with mambo, coconuts and lipstick”.
Sounds like the perfect recipe for up on the terrace to us…
